MARY REID

MARY REID
By Frank Gaimari

GENRE: Horror
LOGLINE:

After separating from his wife, a best-selling author moves to a small town and buys a secluded mansion inhabited by a demonic female spirit who haunts his dreams and waking hours.

SYNOPSIS:

Anthony Caprio, a recovering alcoholic, enjoys life as a best-selling occult writer with his beautiful Italian wife, Sofia, and his two sons, Luca and Franco, in Washington state. After writing his best-selling novel, The Warlock, Anthony receives his first royalty check in the mail. He calls his wife to celebrate, only to discover her in the arms of another man. Anthony flees the city, moving his sons to a small town, and buying a historic mansion.

In 1933, on a dark, stormy night, Patsy Reid, the mansion's original owner, returns home from a speakeasy bar confronting a police officer serving him divorce papers. Wet and stunned, he enters the estate finding his wife and young lover, Joe Williams, having sexual relations. Patsy kills them in a state of rage, dragging their bodies into the cellar and burying them.

Back to the present day, Anthony moves into the mansion, longing for a new life, when Mary Reid, now a spirit demon, presents herself to him. Anthony finds the Apparition amusing until he wakes from a dream, seeing her transformed into a horned, serpentine-tailed creature at the foot of his bed. As she begins wreaking havoc inside the mansion, he becomes fearful for his two boys and assistant, Thomas Clark. Anthony falls under Mary's advances and resumes drinking, turning against his sons.

Now remorseful for having an affair, his wife travels to the small town in hopes of saving her husband's sobriety and protecting her sons from his dysfunctional household. Once there, she runs face-first into the horrific, unexpected nightmare.

Cool synopsis. The logline doesn't fully reflect your story, yet. But I'm sure Hollywood is never going to be the same. Maria, Maria, Maria, just met a girl called Maria... Or was it, Mary? Have to stay off the liqueur...
