Today's Leap Day – the one holiday that doesn't have a horror movie devoted to it. To correct that situation, we've asked each and every FEARnet employee to submit a pitch for a FEARnet film they would make that's based on, inspired by, or entitled 'Leap Year'. Our next proposal comes from Brian Veys. Check it out below.
Leap Year Trailer
Narrator (with on screen graphics): At age 4...
We see a 4 year old girl at her own birthday party. Despite the festive decorations, she's getting made fun of...by her own friends!
Snot nosed little kid, laughing: BABY! BABY! YOU'RE STILL A BABY!
Our heroine, overwhelmed, begins to cry.
Narrator (with on screen graphics): At age 8...
Our girl is sitting in class on Valentine's Day, and is handed a valentine.
Stuck-up girl: Here's yours with Sesame Street!
Teacher: Stop that!
Our heroine holds back tears.
Narrator (with on screen graphics): Now, at 18
At a "no parents there" party at her house...plastic cups abound
Asshole girl: You know, Johnny likes you, Pamela.
Pamela, surprised: Really?
Asshole girl #2: Yeah, but he might be freaked out by the whole "sex with a minor thing"
The two laugh. Pamela leaves the room.
Asshole girl: What?!
Pamela goes into the living room alone in a fit of rage. She looks up, and sees the fire poker next to the fireplace.
Narrator: The entire class of Jefferson High is about to find out: Pamela is old enough to know better and YOUNG ENOUGH TO GET AWAY WITH IT.
TITLES, flying through the screen: LEAP YEAR
In the kitchen, one of the asshole girls is cornered
Asshole girl: Pamela, come on, it's like...
Pamela: it's like...like...
Pamela shoves the fire poker into the asshole girl, javelin-style!
Narrator: It may only be 4 years, but for Pamela, it's been a LIFETIME.
Johnny is talking to Pamela outside by the front door.
Johnny: Look, you're nice and everything, but you're really...what? 4?
Pamela: Come on, Johnny. I've got something for you (hiding the weapon behind her back)
Johnny (thinking she's going to take off her shirt): Oh yeah?
Pamela shoves the fire poker into Johnny's face!
Narrator: JUMP to see LEAP YEAR, while you're still of age.
