Love Bites

SYNOPSIS:

A playboy meets his match when he falls hard for a strong, beautiful woman. But when he gives in to his old ways, he finds himself going from a relationship that would have lasted forever to being on the menu.


Seven story concepts–and two-thirds of a screenplay–in only ten days. Lots of writing, lots of work, and lots of fun. This one is a lot newer than the past six, being something I originally conceived and tinkered with back in August of last year.

I always loved Tales from the Crypt for being a campy but still dark and morbid take on horror in which the wicked and selfish get punished. Twilight Zone episodes were morality plays abut people learning the errors of their ways (if sometimes a bit too late), but it was rarely a malicious lesson. But Crypt was frequently cackling at how it tortured its characters. And sometimes we just need to see the bad guy or some jackass get theirs.

Be sure to join me each night over on Twitch to chat along as I type like a monkey at a keyboard.
