Our second annual ScreamCraft Horror Script Contest is officially launched and we are accepting submissions.  The Hollywood Reporter ran this today.

The final deadline is June 1st at 11:59 PM Pacific Time.



We're really excited about the jury we have lined up this year:

  • Ryan Turek, founder and editor of popular horror website
  • Scott Henderson, agent at Paradigm Talent Agency, represents renowned horror filmmakers James Wan and Leigh Wannell
  • Andrew Wilson, manager at Zero Gravity, represents acclaimed horror writer Clive Barker
  • Amotz Zakai, manager at Echo Lake Management, represents legendary filmmakers including master horror writer-director John Carpenter!
  • Jessica Hall, Senior Vice President at Blumhouse Productions, the company behind micro-budget horror hits including the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge and Sinister franchises
  • Lucy Mukerjee, Vice President of Production and Development at After Dark Films

The entry fee is only $29 until April 15th and the top prize is $2,000 and a phone call with writer-director Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose), and the top ten finalists will all receive development notes from our team. So screw the jewelry, chocolates, and sickly sweet sentiments and bring on the mayhem, the menace, and the macabre!  Enter your script here.
