    Ok a regular old vampire munching on some victims. Good Job.


    Spoiler alert...






    The arrival of the vampire seems completely unexpected. I mean that you the dare come out of nowhere and involves a door that comes out of no where. Was the vampire there waiting for someone to free him? Did the parents know this and was unprepared? What mythology was around the attic space? A lot of questions that lessens the endings impact.

    It was cute and classic. It also seems like it could be the start for a longer piece or could have gone in a bit more family friendly way had some of the back story been expanded upon.

    It was a good read.

    Hi Nouou, enjoyed the read.

    Nice classic tale of a Vampire. But, the same questions Chris brought up apply to me as well. I needed more and you had more space in which to give us some more. Why was he up there? Did the parents know? If so, why weren't they more prepared?
    Really liked the Nasferatu look and the classic Transilvanian feel of your vampire.

    Overall though, it was a good read, but could do with some more thought. Well done.

    Very nice visuals and a great read. The dialog was great and flowed really well. It was a page-turner. Nice and tight writing.

    Great Job!

    It was good, I liked the children's innocence and thought it was portrayed well in your writing style. Its got some great pacing and tension. I like that it has a sort of dark ending too.

    In the middle of the dark living room sits an illuminated
    tent. Inside sits siblings TOMMY (10) and ALAYNA (8).
    Not a big deal but the redundancy of "sits" jumped out at me.

    It’s one of those closets that is like a little room, that has its
    own door.
    Perhaps I'm just closet-ignorant but I have no idea what that means. Do you mean a walk-in closet?

    Vladimir Lovarkneaum
    Awesome vampire name!

    Vladimir gracefully floats down onto the floor, standing at a
    staggering 6’,
    I'm 6' and I don't think anyone has ever referred to my height as "staggering".

    Now, if you
    wouldn’t mind, please, tilt your
    heads, so that I may consume your
    ever so succulent bodily fluids.
    lol

    VLADIMIR
    (whisper)
    I said, you have a beautiful neck.
    lol



    Well, that definitely was not what I was expecting. You write children very well. Their voices and actions seemed very authentic. I was with you up until the parents were killed which i think marked an abrupt tonal shift from everything that preceded it. Two cute kids, after some (what I perceived to be) light hearted suspense, unleash a rather funny vampire and then...it kills the parents and advances on the kids, the end.

    For me that isn't saying enough. Especially since there is such a huge question left unanswered: the parents obviously know about the danger in the attic as evidenced by their warning the kids to stay away from it...so why the hell do they have an Anne Frank vampire in the attic? It seems utterly random.

    And how is Vladimir Lovarkneaum a "Vampire for all Seasons"? This also seems utterly random.

    I LOVED the the first 5 1/2 pages but the title and the last 1 1/2 pages just left me confused.

    Good luck.

    I liked this script. The dialogue between the two kids felt very natural. I was expecting a little more out of the ending though. It seemed somewhat abrupt after the excellent set up. Still, it was very enjoyable!

    I think your writing style is good, and, as already mentioned the children sound very real. However, also as already mentioned, the script goes from presumably light-hearted to dark quite rapidly, and the ending is quite abrupt.

    I would also agree with arroway that the title doesn't quite seem to fit.
