Nice drug imagery, too many typos Credited Review
I really enjoyed the drug-induced imagery, especially the brownie womb thing. The basic plot reminded me a little of "Rodger Dodger." If you haven't seen it, you should. It features a man who is a lot like Ken and then finally begins to pull out of it. There were several location changes that weren't clear or were completely omitted. Example: On page 20, there's a CUT TO Angie's apartment but no corresponding scene description (INT ANGIE'S APARTMENT…). I was also distracted by all the typos and the minimalist punctuation. Somehow, Ken needs to be more likeable earlier in the script. It's hard to root for such a jerk. I didn't get the ending. It seemed like he was on the road to recovery, and then he walks into the ocean? To kill himself?

Smith's ability to control Moeller should lead to many more twists and turns that complicate both... read

    The story unfolded at a good pace and kept me interested in the murder mystery. Venus is an interesting character, but she's so moody and temperamental, it's hard to believe that she'd ever settle down enough to go to college. The weakest aspect of the script is the dialogue -- much of it sounds unnatural and forced. Example: When Reynolds says, "Here. It's freezing tonight"... read

    Phew. Intense. Excellent sense of suspense. Please get someone to proofread this wonderful script, so that other readers aren't distracted by all the misspellings. Sheila is spelled at least three different ways! I would also suggest using a few more complete sentences in the scene descriptions. Sure, fragments keep everything short and snappy, but every now and then, you need... read
