Screenplays by Nigel

The Old Cold Steel


Drama, Family, Bathroom, Bedroom, Hallway, House, Four Pages

A curious story that twists around like a snake, intentionally pushing you to think one thing and then another all the way through, leaving you pondering the reality of online profile images and body-image.

James pays a visit to a suburban house where things are not what they seem. Interactions with a woman at the door and a young lad upstairs play out in zig-zag fashion until the purpose of the visit is revealed... but even that has layers of intrigue wrapped around it.

Quite a handful in a 4-page script, but something worthwhile to get your teeth into.
