Get to know the winning writer:

What is your screenplay about?

The principled wife of a brewery redefines ethics when she catches her husband cheating and her business begins to die.

What genres does your screenplay under?

Horror.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Brew. Bitch.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

For the same reason one should have a drink after a hard day of work. It’s fun to escape your problems by watching another person’s drama. And it’s deliciously wicked fun to view a scorned spouse.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

The Birds.

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Six months.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to tell.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

After coming off of a win in South Carolina, my girlfriend PATTY brought me to several breweries. As the owner of Brown Iron Brewery in Michigan, she droned on and on about hops, barley, fermenters and the business. After a twelve flight of beer, I fell asleep and dreamt she killed her husband by throwing him into the fermentor.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Not getting too trashed while writing the story.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I love to listen to women tell their stories.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

This fabulous festival renders a phenomenal opportunity for aspiring writers to receive copious notes from a team of professionals whose goal is to have you and your story rise to a level worthy of being read by actors and eventually brought to the screen.

Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

BEST SCENE Reading from KIDICIDE by Kelly Karam

Watch the January 2017 Winning Female Festival Screenplay Reading.

Best Scene from the screenplay KIDICIDE Screenplay
Written by Kelly Karam

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – David Straus
HONEY – Shannon McNally
MALLORY – Val Cole
VICTOR – Nick Wicht
DONOVAN – Gabriel Darku
HEATHER – Catherine D’Angelo

SYNOPSIS:

Genre: Female, Family, Drama, Horror, Thriller

Friends and family start dropping like flies when an award-winning mom brings home a suspicious new husband and his psychopathic son.

 Get to know the writer:

What is your screenplay about?

“Kidicide” is an “Enviro-Horror” screenplay about an award-winning chemist who infects the loving bond forged between she and her teenage daughter by impulsively bringing into their home a suspicious new husband and his psychopathic son.

What genres does your screenplay under?

Horror. Psychological Thriller.

How would you describe this script in two words?

“KIDICIDE” offers an original take on the “nature verses nurture” dilemma. What exactly do parents have control over in the raising of their children and what is simply out of their hands? Does genetics and biological factors play a bigger role on their intelligence or is it the “tribe” who raises them? And if we know with certainty what we introduce into our environment conversely affects all creatures who inhabit the earth then similarly who and what our children become exposed to will ultimately affect them as well. With this being said, “KIDICIDE” is about the family we choose and the family we don’t – and the relationships amongst family members.

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Nature. Nurture.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Alfred Hitchcocks, “The Birds.”

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

For over two years.

How many stories have you written?

Too many to count. But “KIDICIDE” started out as a short story titled, “STAY OUT OF MY ROOM.” Afterward I wrote it into a short screenplay and because it resonated with judges and won several awards I decided to enhance the short into a feature.

What motivated you to write this screenplay?

Nature verses nurture dilemma has always been of interest to me.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Making sure the scientific research, although far-fetched, could be considered authentic.

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

I love reading, walking, and listening to people tell me their stories.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

FEEDBACK Female Film Festival goal blew me away. I could have never imagined a festival wanting not to be around in five years because of “zero need” to balance out the powers in Hollywood. I knew this festival was without question about showcasing stories of women. And by ultimately providing phenomenal feedback writers could elevate their story, therefore, promoting the goal of FFFF being reached. Whereas, an audience member is able to finally choose a movie with a female POV. And I say, a BIG YAY to that Mister, err, Missy!
