Review Rating:

The overall premise is excellent and pretty intriguing and different. I especially like how the opening started, going right into the main conflict to keep the reader engaged, and really hooks the audience into watching the rest of the screenplay. The character of "The Woman" is very intriguing and mysterious, and I like the mystery element that you included in the screenplay. I also like how you handled the two stories that are in the screenplay, the first being the overall mystery of The Woman and how Michael attempts to solve the entire thing, as well as the second story featuring Kai and Penny. The characters themselves are really interesting to follow along with, understanding their motivations and their backstories, and I like the connection between Micheal and Kai at the end of the story. It seems like a great pilot to a future TV series, which gets the readers invested in the powers of Kai and Micheal, solving the mystery of The Woman, and what relationship Kai has with the Woman. If this does become a TV series, there are a lot of possible future conflicts that could occur, and it would be interesting to see how the characters handle the situations. This story has a mix of various elements that make up a good screenplay - strong, dynamic interesting characters, an overarching story with tons of mystery and unresolved conflicts, action scenes and engaging moments with the terrifying elements that are featured in the screenplay. The screenplay did surprise me a couple of times, and it would very very interesting to see this continue into a bigger, more interesting, overarching story, with presumably multiple twists and surprises. This kind of show reminds me a lot about shows like "The X Files", and I think it would be interesting to see how the characters really delved deeply with the conflicts in their way and grow as characters. If there are problems with the screenplay, it has to be the formatting, although it's not that big of a problem. The formatting misses its mark a couple of times with improper lines and unnecessary colons.

Brother Margaret feature
Genre: Action/Adventure,Thriller
Review Rating:

The story itself seems pretty decent, although nothing really that surprising from a horror flick. The premise overall though, is really interesting utilizing an undead monk as the main antagonist of the story, seeming to bring in a religious motivation that could be potentially terrifying to the audience. I really like how you handled the character of Brother Margaret, as he has the most interesting personality out of all of the characters. He is terrifying and most of the dialogue he speaks out has a lot of charm, and he really makes the story engaging with his motivations. The other characters, on the other hand, are really that interesting, which is kind of a problem - when you make a story bring a personality to all of the characters instead of just one. While Brother Margaret has a lot of personality, the other characters like Riley and Daniel aren't really that interesting in the long run - there is no character traits that make me care about either of them. Another thing that I have to praise you for is the unique setting of a mall, which seems like a setting for a teen drama, but has very interesting potential conflicts that could unfold if handled correctly. While I like the creativity in the setting, it doesn't work at all for me mainly because there is no reason to put this in a mall - there's no significance. Overall, the story, while it does surprise me a couple of times with the scary aspects, feels very generic and boring in the long run - not really that entertaining. Aside from my issues with the characters and the poor use of the setting, another problem was the pacing. You seemed to get right into the character of Brother Margaret without any transition or time for the audience to soak in what was going on. The whole movie felt like that, instead of building up the tension, it felt like random plot points were being thrown to make the audience care. Overall, you did a good job with the story, but please address the pacing and characters.
