Marrying a psychological rapist will get your panties in a twist.

Karl Forsythe is a psychological rapist—a sociopathic personality who enjoys mind-effing women. He pretends to be a religious man with an affliction. His actions portray a calculating narcissist who admires serial rapists like Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy, and congratulates himself on finding a superior method of satisfying his sadistic compulsion.

This is the author's second original screenplay, the first draft of which received an A grade in the 2007 UCLA Advanced Screenwriting Lab with Professor Richard Walter, and was the #1 favorite script in the Zoetrope Screenwriters Virtual Workshop in August, ranked 7-9 out of 10 for originality, character development, plot, dialogue and cinematic quality.

These characters and events are fictitious.Although every writer draws from personal experience as well as that of those they know, embellishment is necessary for dramatic effect. The plot of this story was crafted based on two movies that captivated the writer in her youth: WAIT UNTIL DARK (1967, Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin), and THE GAME (1997, Michael Douglas, Sean Penn). In Wait Until Dark, the audience sees how extremely bad the villain is long before the protagonist recognizes that she is in mortal danger. The Game takes viewers on an emotional roller coaster with unexpected twists and an unexpected surprise at the end.
