GENRE: Horror, Experimental

Two years after she was driven into hiding by an encounter with an infernal force, the devil returns to claim the soul of recluse Selma Price.


For the last two years, Selma Price has refused to leave her home. Claiming that her mother was taken by some kind of supernatural "smoke man", claiming the smoke man threatened to take her too if she didn't behave as she should, Selma has walled herself away in a one-room apartment. Armed with very little information, living by an increasingly strict and bizarre system of rituals and assumptions, Selma hopes to keep the smoke man away. When the evil that took Selma's mother away finally returns two years later, there is no place left to run.

Thank you for bumping my screenplays back into the timeline, Nathaniel Baker! MUCH appreciated!

Just in case anyone's looking for a horror project that's produceable under social distancing guidelines, this is a one-location studio film with no more than two cast members on set at any time. Right now, my cowriter (and wife) and I are willing to let this script go for as little as $3,000. Have a look, and drop us a line!
