The Devil Knocks at Night short
Genre: Horror
Review Rating:

Nobody likes to get shoved with backstory in the first 10 pages. Nobody likes any pointless exposition. Show, not tell. Put yourself in my shoes. You're watching one of your favorite TV shows. You're enjoying the fight sequence. Finally, the main character throws up her finishing move... and instead of seeing what happens next, you're bogged with 30 seconds of pointless exposition about how said move works. That happened before to me, and I was PISSED. Why am I talking about my TV viewing experiences with you, you may ask? Well, your script suffers from the same problem as said show... you want something exciting, but exposition is thrown at your face, which decreases your enjoyment and your patience. If half your script is exposition, like the pages I read, than NOBODY - I mean NOBODY - would watch the whole thing. Time is something valuable, so you'd need to do something to GET viewers and readers to view/read for 49 pages... almost an hour. That hour can be spent in many different ways, and you need to beat around the bush and show your backstory, not tell it. Because if you tell it, than everyone will stop reading after page 7 or change the channel to something else. There's a lot of content out there right now, and if you want to tower above all the other things that are on TV or in the movies, you'll have to make an entertaining script that shows why we need to care about it. Because right now, you might be emotionally invested into it, but to an outsider, it's a bunch of bulls--t that makes negative 3000 sense.
