    Just did a minor re-write on the script.

    This script is a bit of a change for me, I'm a little nervous. Its a more of "normal" and straight foreward story than my previous scripts. I generally have some sort of "fantastic" or weird element going on, hopefully this works.

    Merry F'ing Christmas!

    Holy crap. This was brutally depressing. Doesn't help that I'm a dog lover.
    I could see this all too clearly. I'm a fan of your scripts and this is no exception.

    Very nice work.

    Dude.

    No, seriously... dude.

    Okay, I know what you were trying to do, and you did it with your typical skill... but did you really need to go there?

    MAH - thank you, I appreciate the kind words. I too, am a dog lover. This story came out of a news article I read about people kidnapping pet dogs to use as bait dogs for their young Pits to see how aggressive they would be.

    Captain - thanks, I think. lol
    Yes, I had to go there, this story just stuck in my head, tortured me every night for about a week, until I had no choice but to get it out. First beer's on me.

    Damn man, we have some sick minds in this thing and I think you just took the cake. I always say if what you write bothers you then it sure as hell is going to bother your audience, so congrats on that. I almost think though that the pit bull scene could be trimmed, because we already know what'll happen. Overall great job.

    I did notice the margins were cheated a bit and you know that won't translate timewise, but who cares, most of these scripts if shot will be over 6 minutes of screen time.

    Ladies and Gentleman, the man-tear short film of the year! For feck's sake! If there was ever an Aronofsky short film, this would be it. I haven't felt this s*%tty since I heard "ass to ass" on Requiem for a Dream.

    The basement scene was like D9 when they bring that Prawn in so Wikus can test the weapons...

    I'm...I'm feckin' done.

    This is starting to feel like "loss fest" pretty depressing ending. I'm not seeing a
    betrayal here. The man sold his dog for a 'fix' but does that translate into betrayal?

    Better the dog got the cops to arrest the owner for doing drugs. I would have bought that.

    Chris - I appreciate the kind words. You and my wife have something in common, the first thing she said after reading it..."You're sick. Why would you write something like this?" You're right, this story bothered me, got under my skin and I had to put it down on paper, wasn't sure how it would be received.

    I'll check into the margins issue, though they shouldn't be any different than usual, at least from my previous work. I just use whatever the preset margins are on Movie Magic, if I need to change them, Ill certainly do so. Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Rod - I'll sadly accept my Man-Tear award. Thank you. I guess I should be glad that the script is having such a "shi*ty" affect on readers so far? lol
    I love Requiem for a Dream, so I'll take that as a compliment. Join me and the Captain for a beer.

    Charli - I'm not sure how to respond to your comment. I actually felt I had one of the most obvious betrayals. Forget the fact that he has betrayed his family for the drug. He betrays the only friend he has left in the world, Buck his faithful sidekick, for a fix. The one that still stands by him unconditionally gets sold into dog fighting for ten bucks.

    But, every story is not going to connect with everyone. That seems to have happened here. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
