Congrats to the Writing Challenge #5 Winners.

WritingChallengeWe switched up Writing Challenge #5 and made it about loglines.  Each participant was asked to write a logline for a 5 – 12 page scripts with the following criteria.

The genre must be horror and must involve a part of the body (eye, hand, leg, etc.) – the spirit or soul is also acceptable.

There were 46 loglines entered.  Following are the top three results.
