Terry is setting his Mum up for a Halloween surprise, but this twisty horror turns the tables when she finds out exactly what he did. Opportunity for great make-up and a careful shooting schedule to get all the bits right.

Here are the comments from our panel of screenwriter professionals about this script.

If you want to pack a Zombie movie into just two minutes, this clever script’s for you! A nice concept with an excellent twist and four speaking characters, this piece requires a teenage skateboarder and quite a bit of fake blood, and is a chance to show the make-up department’s skills as well as yours. Great stuff!
