THRILLER Best Scene Screenplay: Chupacabra, by Aaron Willett, Jayesh Patel

“A small town Texas community is torn at the seams when lies, cover ups, and deception muddy up the waters of the true terror that lurks in the wild.”

Chief Blake is fair on justice and well liked, but now all of his instincts and decisions are hauled into question as a series of gruesome accidents and violent misfortune run rampant on a farming community that prides itself on good clean Christian country living. Once a beautiful place for fishing, swimming, and hiking, Cuero has turned into a terrifying pit of heart-stopping murders and horror. Innocent hikers start disappearing and farm animals are turning up brutally mauled in a small Texas border town. Violent town hall meetings trigger outrage about how to handle the situation. What this once tightly knit community doesn’t realize however is that fear and chaos are just the start of their worst nightmare. This story was inspired by true events.

THRILLER Festival Testimonial – October 25 2018

 Screenwriter Iannis Aliferis (Samantha Rutledge PI, A Killer Case)

As a writer and filmmaker, it is important to get your writing and work out there for people to view, and this festival looked like a good opportunity for that. The initial feedback has been largely positive and this has been a good experience.

It is the story of a bored and jaded female private-eye, who takes on another seemingly open and shut case of infidelity, only to put herself in grave danger when it turns out that the cheating spouse is in fact a professional killer.

Genre: Crime, Thriller.

Type: Feature Screenplay.
