Next Week: In Deed

Before Anyone Asks:

The next story I’ll be tackling is “In Deed”… a story that’s been started twice already.
The original flash-version from the Book of Dark Places project is here. This was the last BoDP story, and I abandoned the project long before the ending.

When I started writing again, I re-booted “In Deed” in a text-only format. I got about three chapters into it before getting overwhelmed with other things and put it on hiatus. I’ll be picking the story up from where I left off, using the M-W-F format that I’ve used for the past few stories. The original chapters are here.

The plan is to start writing this week and post the first new chapter on Monday, November 9th. See you then!

    Cool! I’ll be here waiting.

    Movie Revie: Broken

    Opening scene was pretty gory. Lady tied to a tree at her neck, balancing on a log that if she slips off of will end up hanging herself. Stomach stitched shut. She has to use a sharpened stick to cut open the stitches and remove a buried razor blade so she can cut the rope, all while not losing her balance. Pretty gruesome scene for an opener, but things go downhill from there.

    The main character ends up in an identical position, but there is no explanation of how. She manages to free herself only to be recaptured by the bad guy, who apparently is trying to break her will and make her a slave. He tells her that she no longer has a daughter or a past.

    One cringe worthy scene is when she fails to escape and he places her leg over a log and stomps on the shin to break it. The other one was when he cuts the tongue out of another woman he’s captured.

    The gore scenes really reminded me a lot of the original Saw movie.

    Overall the plot of this movie is never really explained. It’s based on a true story, but they never give you that information. Google turned up that it’s based on Rober Hanson, but from what I read there it’s a very loose basis.

    The ending is something that has to be seen, and very worthy of the opening.

    It could have used a lot more character description, and some plot as to how he managed to capture these women. We never find out his motive.

    I’d give it 2.5 out of 4.

    Is it my imagination or was there more to the the flash version of “In Deed”? I seem to recall people crawling through ducts and someone going outside to the ship and being attacked.

    That was in the text story only. I never got that far in the flash story.
