This highly anticipated horror screenplay competition is deeply entrenched in the global horror community. Founder Steve Douglas-Craig has spent over 14 years inside the major studio system in story development and acquisitions shepherding high-end genre content in association with companies such as Blumhouse and Ghosthouse Pictures.
TNS is seeking to discover that next big voice in horror, and it could be you! If you can both scare and entertain, then this competition is for you.
TNS Horror Screenplay Competition intends to place winning scripts in front of producers (Haxan Films, Cryptic Pictures, Screen Gems, Fangoria Studios), managers (Verve Ventures, Zero Gravity Mgt), as well as distributors (Apple, Hulu, Netflix, AMP Int.), and talent agents (Verve, IAG) best positioned to get their voices heard.
"It's hard, lonely work being a writer... and really hard to find someone smart and helpful to give you an honest and constructive set of notes. Steve is the real deal. He understands story, structure, plot, and character development and he understands what it is to be a writer. He understands you."
"Steve is quite simply a writer in the purest sense. His innate understanding of story, plot rhythms and overall structure give him the foundation necessary to tell any story. However, it is his complex understanding of the human condition that gives him the foundation to continually create cathartic, well-rounded, three demential characters. Any budding writer lucky enough to work with Steve should consider themselves blessed."
