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 Erick Salomon. Check it out below.
Leap Year... An Extra Day of Death!
Avid Horror fan Marshall White lives in the picturesque town of Jennings Hallow. For 23 years, Marshall has stood by and watched as holidays such as Halloween, Christmas and even Mother's Day, have been made into Horror films. Even lesser, superstitious days like Friday the 13th have gotten the celluloid treatment. He's grown resentful and angry over the lack of attention of his personal favorite: Leap Day. February 29th holds a special place in his heart as that is the day of his birth.
Tired of him and his day being overlooked, for this Leap Year Marshall has orchestrated a series of gruesome and shocking horrors for the residents of Jennings Hallow. Before the clock strikes midnight, Marshall will ensure that Leap Year will be a date to be feared as the blood spilled will be more disturbing than anything found on screen.
