86 pages

Contained Horror (one primary location)

Theme:    Bad things get downright contagious. 

Coverage: Hedgewitch is an original and intriguing screenplay. It reads well, and the images leap off the page, making the audience care about the protagonist. It has taut, but fluid action and natural dialog, set in a powerful and very creepy theme which takes the form of a dream-like tone poem with a strong, magical atmosphere. (Screenplay Readers, professional coverage service)

Synopsis: Oak, like all Marines, is a warrior. When he hears he could lose his leg, it toggles thoughts of Ava, a girl from his past. When he left her to join the Marines she was a kind of ‘white witch’ in training. With a few bucks in hand and no real alternatives, he heads to Frog Holler and sees her for the first time in years. They both can see they’ve changed. She’s married, her husband went to the city to get a loan for the home he and Ava are renovating to be a B&B. Oak asks Ava for some of her ‘magic’ but once together it’s clear, at least to him, there’s chemistry. And even though she’s married he can see she may have some PTSD of her own; she sports a shiner that can’t be missed. He asks to stay while he gets his bearings and injury or no, she tells him “you stay, you work.”

 Ava’s just lost her dear friend and trainer: Endora, in town she was known as the Hedgewitch. Now Ava gets to try out some of her mojo on Oak. But there’s a bird: an oversized Raven who seems to haunt her, the house and now Oak. Day by day Oak can see and sense there’s more going on than meets the eye and as he does repairs on the house, in its own way, the house begins to talk back.

 No one is really prepared for what’s about to happen. This tale comes down to navigating the real, the imagined, and holding on to real hope when you can, but being smart enough to cut and run when you must.

Agent’s note: A lot can be done with sound and lighting here. The writer truly factored in the people first, so some of the FX could be dialed back. There’s a whiff of sexy nostalgia to Oak and Ava that captures the imagination. But it’s the story that gains and holds ground from beginning to end, and we are not quite sure where the characters are going to take us, but we must keep reading to see where and how everyone lands. And too, I felt for the character, Oak: with nowhere to go and time cutting off all exits for him whether he has two legs or one, he doesn’t know which way to jump. We’ve all been there at one time or another.

I urge you give Hedgewitch a solid read by one of your most skilled readers. Getting this into production for the right director could offer a marvelous challenge, a testimony to his or her talent, and maybe even a solid ROI.
