    Starting this thread will hopefully spur me to enter.

    Logline suggestions;

    1) If you choose to play Spin the Bottle, be prepared for the unexpected - especially if you choose the wrong bottle.

    Or

    2) A student party turns sour after using an artefact belonging to a mysterious female student for a game of Spin the Bottle.

    Thoughts?

    I prefer #1 as well. It's a little more mysterious and I am intrigued.

    #2 "A student party turns sour" that just doesn't sound very scary, like they ran out of beer or the cops showed up and also revealing that there is an "artifact" may be too much information.

    Either way, I'm interested to see where it's going and hope to read it in the fest.

    Yeah, I felt that way as well, it's just that some prefer to have a protag etc mentioned, but IMO for a short I feel you can play around a little more.

    Script almost done so hopefully will post - just don't know how? I understand instructions will follow (correct?)

    Cheers folks

    Congrats on being nearly complete! Yes, you don't have to follow the same rules with a short, mainly because you may give the whole thing away.

    As for upload. When it's read there will be a thread with instructions.

    Cheers chris, l'll await instructions.

    I have to say horro isn't my thing which at first was a barrier, but then I decided just to have a go. I have taken the opportuni to experiment in a few ways, some of which I don't like and won't do again, but worth the try.

    Not sure mine has enough "games",but it's there.

    There's your horror story right there! That's not turning sour, it's truly horrifying.

    For a logline, I like #2. It tells me about the story.

    For a tagline, I like #1. I picture it on the movie poster.
    So, you hate your job? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYONE. We meet at the bar at 5:00.

    I agree with Bill Clar about the logline thing. Although #2 could be a bit clearer.

    I love everything bottles, spinning the bottles, spinning the wrong bottles, drinking from the wrong bottles, dying when drinking from the wrong bottles - can't wait to read it.

    Spin the Bottle

    Before you play Spin the Bottle, it's always a good idea to know who the other players are.
