Submission Samples from the Supernatural Genre

Title: DELPHIAN

Logline: Abandoned at birth and raised by a monastery, a seemingly ordinary girl has her world turned upside down when she discovers she is the link to the ultimate extra-ordinary revelation-the apocalypse.

Synopsis: Lily, now an adult, is under the watchful eye of an ordained priest, Father Cross, who is appointed by God to watch over and mold Lily's soul for the future's sake of all Christianity. She meets her twin flame, Sam (Samael), by fate and soon must come to terms with her true identity. She is Lilith, the final link that will bring on the apocalypse. Sam must fight to win Lily's eternal soul before the prophetic end of days. If he loses the battle to Father Cross, the world will live on as it always has, under the commandments of a delusive God, in fear of damnation, but if he wins, it will be the end of the world as we know it. The earth will rumble, cities will quake, churches will fall and the fallen-angel will be the key to the world's true salvation. Lily must choose her master. She is prophecy. She is delphian.

Title: Offspring

Logline: A woman gives birth to a baby that has extraordinary genes and who exhibits bizarre and dangerous behavior.

Synopsis: Offspring is a supernatural thriller that relates to the T.V. series "V" and the movie "An American Werewolf in London." The story begins with Priscilla Hartford, an anti-abortion activist who is abducted, inhumanely raped and becomes impregnated. Making the moral decision to not abort, she subsequently delivers and notices abnormal behavior and features of her new born baby. As a result, DNA tests reveal the baby as having abnormal genes. Priscilla is exhausted from breast feeding and decides to feed her baby a can of Enfamil milk formula which was soon discovered to have been recalled by the FDA because of an ingredient that caused anatomical reactions if given to babies. The ingredient intensifies her baby's rare genes. After years of bizarre behavior, Frazier's antics are now dangerously out of control. Authorities and a doctor observe, monitor, and validate this offspring as a threat to society. They have very little time to capture him before the inevitable happens!

Title: The Forward Observer

Logline: An injured soldier returns from the Afghan War and finds that his family, the house he grew up in and his life pre-deployment don't exist and never have.

Synopsis: THE FORWARD OBSERVER is about a critically wounded Army officer who returns from the Afghan War and finds that his family, the house he grew up in and his life pre-deployment don't exist...and never have. His search for answers quickly leads him to a secret, off the radar, government paranormal research project that is housed under the grounds of an old abandoned Massachusetts State Mental Hospital. The researchers are not alone. The soldier soon discovers that the institution is a hotbed of paranormal activity. But it doesn't take him long to realize that it's not the dead that he has to worry about. This script requires limited locations and a 'relatively' small cast. The location for the 'State Hospital' could be any one of a number of similar abandoned facilities and the opening WW II 'French Countryside" can be shot locally. I think it would be a strong feature film. I know that it would work well on a network such as the SyFy Channel.
