Check out the video longline for my horror screenplay, Inked In Blood.
After cataclysmic solar flares change the world as we know it, a young man finds himself part of a select new breed of Super-Humans. As the world falls down around him, he must discover if he has what it takes to be the hero that the world needs him to be.
Major Sinclair is a comic book store owner. But, comic books are not his only passion. His dream is to become a Capital City police officer and follow in his late fathers footsteps. But, Major has asthma and cannot pass the police academies physical. At night his sleep is haunted by nightmares of his families brutal murder at the hands of criminal know as the “BRICK,” and his days are filled with rejection letters from the academy. All this pressure does nothing to help his strained relationship with Tiffany, a twenty-eight year old lawyer on the fast track to success who has very little patience for his meager earnings from the comic book store.
But, life on Earth will change forever, as the world is suddenly bombarded by a series of devastating solar flares. When Major is caught out in the open during the most cataclysmic event, he is engulfed in a wall of radiated fire and rendered unconscious. He wakes to find that, not only has he survived, but he now has super-human abilities.
Major is not the only human to find themselves “enhanced.” Among the world-wide devastation and death, a mad man has begun to amass a gang of super powered thugs to eliminate all those who could oppose him in his plans to take control of Capital City.
As Major tries to make sense of his life while it falls apart around him, he must find out if he has what it takes to stand up to the man who is hunting Super-Humans. The man who murdered his parents.
Revenge is never a straight line.
