In the 1900's, a prestigious girl born into wealth, receives her inheritance at seven years old. Growing up with her love for guns and a handyman slave, she faces backlash cause of her intentions with living life on her own terms.
In 1899, a year after the Newbern family move to Corbin, Kentucky, Sarah receives a five year old slave for her seventh birthday. A couple of the town women gossip to the wife about her husband purchasing a slave, who is two years younger than their daughter. Heather, Sarah's mother, teaches her about ownership of a slave and women's rights, for what's appropriate to society.
March 1919, Sarah receives an award for the fastest hand in the south. Her fiance, Thomas, convinces her to have Samuel, Sarah's slave, to fix the roof of the house. Despite the fact that he believes that he controls her. Daniel, Sarah's dad, sets him straight because Samuel is Sarah's property, which in turn doesn't sit right with Thomas. The couple gets into an argument, when she finds out Thomas and his friends are sleeping with slave women. Sarah gets revenge on Thomas by sleeping with her slave, Samuel.
Thomas, knowing what Sarah did, takes Samuel at night, with the help of his friends. Sarah hears the commotion and runs after them, with her guns, to the mountains. The couple get into an argument then he hits her on the arm with a whip. Sarah defends herself and in return, the guys believes that she has committed treason for defending her slave. The mayor and sheriff investigate the ordeal, which later led Sarah to court, for protecting her property and killing her husband. The Newbern household worry because Sarah could be tried for murder, even though she felt like Thomas was jealous at how she treated Samuel.
The prosecutor argued with what is according to the way of life, while the defendant argued with what is right and according to the law. Sarah wins the case, while Thomas friends had to serve a sentence. They vowed revenge on Sarah, because she killed Thomas for Samuel. Months pass by then the guys are released, and they take Samuel to get revenge on Sarah. Two of the guys try to shoot her, but was not fast enough. The sheriff arrive, sees what the guys did to Samuel, and let Sarah have her revenge.

My screenplay, 15, is a contained psychological thriller/horror film, which features a small cast, minimal locations, and a shocking twist ending. The feature-length screenplay has been turned into a short film (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4234812/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1). 15 won 2nd Place in the 2014 Terror Film Festival Screenplay Competition after being chosen as an official selection and it was also a semi-finalist in the 2014 Indie Horror Film Festival Screenplay Contest. The logline even won the Screenwriter’s Utopia Logline Competition in October 2014. With all those factors combined, 15 is a promising horror film that can be made on a small budget with a great chance for success.

To give you a better sense of the screenplay, here are excerpts from all five professional Black List reviews from www.blcklst.com, and an excerpt from my Hollywood Screenplay Contest review:
· “A twist readers won't see coming and an impactful finale that is truly shocking.”
· “An intriguing delve into the psyche of someone suffering from agoraphobia. The writing is descriptive and compelling. …Fantastic twist the reader doesn't see coming.”
· “Watching the protagonist implode was a harrowing experience. …Moves at a lightning pace. …Intensely character-driven, complemented by quality dialogue.”
· “Very well written. The plot is efficient and clear, fleshing out the story and characters thoroughly, while not wasting any time. The twist is genuinely surprising yet well-set-up, resulting in a compelling and darkly satisfying conclusion.”
· “Visual and horrifying imagery, constantly keeping the reader wondering what is real.”
· “The script does a good job of slowly amping up the atmosphere so that by the third act the script is ready to cut loose. It really packs a wallop and pays off everything that has come before it.”

My name's Sadie Katz. I've had three feature length screenplays produced for Anchor Bay, Lionsgate and an indie. I'm also a genre actress with over a dozen released films with top billing including three through Lionsgate and 20th Century Fox's Wrong Turn 6.
I have a covid friendly producing script. It has limited characters, limited locations and all practical effects. The film could reasonably be shot with under fifteen people on set at any time. Depending on the budget filming could be completed in a ten to fifteen day schedule.
Here's the ahem' elevator pitch: A woman going through a divorce is trapped in an elevator. It's very The Shining, Repulsion meets Ryan Reynold's Buried.
