The Horror of Leap Year Part 4

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 Chris Connors. Check it out below.

Several years have passed since that February morning. The only thing remarkable about it was the date. The 29th. The bodies were found in a long since aborted residential development project in what was once sprawling South Jersey farmland. The abandoned homes, some partially built  while others just open holes still awaiting their foundations, proved a perfect location for the sacrifice.  Nobody was coming in or out of this modern day ghost town. The altar was in the basement of what must have been the sample model, complete but unfurnished.  The victims, or what was left of them, consisted of hookers, homeless, and addicts. The trifecta of lost and forgotten souls. Nobody paid attention when they went missing.  Everyone paid attention when they were found. With them a message, written in blood, "This isn't the end".

It's mid-February now. The streets of Camden, usually littered with society's unwanted, are noticeably empty. The police and media may not be listening yet, but the streets are talking. People are going missing. He is collecting. There will be a 29th this month. It is beginning again. It is LEAP YEAR.
