We are looking for completed feature-length low-budget psychological suspense/thriller/mystery/drama scripts – trippy, mindbending scripts – with reality shifts, mental instability, ticking clock mechanisms. In other words, scripts in the vein of “Donnie Darko,” “Birth,” “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “Tell No One,” etc. Sometimes disturbing, with a foreboding atmosphere of suspense, danger and that the world is not as it seems.
We are NOT interested in straight-up horror scripts, action/thrillers or crime scripts without the story elements mentioned above. In other words, though we like the film “Se7en;” it would not fit the above criteria since it is an edgy, dark mainstream crime film but without the mindbending elements. We are not interested in “traditional” detective or Lifetime-types of thrillers unless they contain the fears, paranoia and story devices of the titles mentioned above. The story can contain metaphysical concerns (such as in “Donnie Darko,”), but the scale should not be of “The Matrix,” since this is a lower-budget film. Please look at the above titles to get an indication of the sensibility and taste.
Budget will not exceed $1 million. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.
Our credits include “Roshambo Apocalypse.”
