Alex W. (88 posts)
Alex has struggled for years to understand what he saw underneath the Old Tree that fateful night. But just as he’d written it off as the fevered delusions of a dollmaker’s son, a series of unexplained and gruesome deaths insist that something more is at work. Something ancient and evil… something the mad monk calls OBSCURA. Now, armed with forbidden rites, haunted mirrors, and Peter Dinklage, it’s up to Alex to finally bring the evil to light, and lay old ghosts to rest. (Canada, 113 min; rated R for sexual decapitation, political infighting, and jujubes)

Nicole (17 posts)
Nicole is a teacher and is married to a man who poorly proofreads her abridged scripts. They have a very immodest Shih Tzu. Her talents include being able to recite most of Fargo, which she thinks impresses people.
Lachlan R. (15 posts)
Lachlan R. was raised in Indonesia, Thailand, Poland and the Australian countryside. Somehow, this has resulted in a semi-English accent. He's currently studying in Melbourne, Australia and is working towards writing full time.
Owain B. (11 posts)
Owain is a part-time rock star with the beard of a full-time hobo. In his high school yearbook he was named "most likely to become a genius comedian", and he's been struggling to live up to that ever since.
Joannes (10 posts)
Joannes is a 6'5" guy from Belgium who shamelessly ripped off The Editing Room to create his own spin-off for videogames at http://playthroughline.com. To keep Rod off his back, he occasionally contributes a movie script here.

Vell, Alex's just zis guy, you know? A 22 year old student who moved around way too much growing up, but is settled (for now) in Madison, Wisconsin. Alex loves music and movies, plays guitar every day, and feels uncomfortable writing about himself in third person.
Ben is a law student in New Orleans. He studies flash cards of differing emotional faces in hopes of one day understanding social cues. He claims to be the first to coin the YouTube comments "FIRST!", "FAKE!", and "GAY!". No one is ever impressed. He has a girlfriend who is totally real. She has eyes that are blue or brown and hair that is also a color.
