In no particular order.
(1) Patient Z (6) by Michael Le
In a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies, a man who speaks their language questions the undead in order to find a cure for his infected wife.
This one sounds Very Interesting. Someone who can communicate with the undead.
(2) Ink and Bone (12) by Zak Olkewicz
When a female book editor visits the home of a horror writer so he can complete his novel, she finds that all of his creations are holding him hostage.
This one could be a cracking horror. Lots of potential here. Depends on the target audience.
(3) Capsule (8) by Ian Shorr
A young man’s life is turned upside down when he mysteriously begins to receive metallic capsules containing messages from his future self.
Getting messages from your future self. Very Interesting.
(4) Extinction (8) by Spenser Cohen
A man must do everything he can to save his family from an alien invasion.
The logline doesn't give much away. But again, has lots of potential. Could go in so many directions.
(5) Sovereign (24) by Geoff Tock and Greg Weidman
A man goes to space to destroy the ship that, upon going sentient, killed his wife.
A sentient (thinking) spaceship, sounds very cool. Lots of potential here. Sounds Very Interesting.
(6) Pan (6) by Jason Fuchs
A prequel to JM Barrie’s Peter Pan. When an orphan is taken to the magical world of Neverland, he becomes a hero to the natives and leads a revolt against the evil pirates.
A prequel to Peter Pan. This could be Very Good.
(7) A Monster Calls (27) by Patrick Ness
An adolescent boy with a terminally ill single mother begins having visions of a tree monster, who tells him the truths about life in the form of three stories, helping him to eventually cope with his emotions over his dying mom.
This sounds like it could be a lot of fun and very interesting.
(8) Reminiscence (20) by Lisa Joy Nolan
An “archeologist” whose technology allows you to relive your past finds himself abusing his own science to find the missing love of his life.
This sounds like it could be pretty entertaining. A drama, a comedy or maybe it's both.
(9) Gay Kid and Fat Chick (14) by Bo Burnham
Two high school misfits become costumed vigilantes and take out their frustrations on the students who have bullied them throughout high school.
The title alone stands out. Could this be similar to Kick Ass? Could be most entertaining.
(10) Seed (10) by Christina Hodson
After suffering a devastating miscarriage, a young woman and her fiance travel to Italy where she meets his family for the first time, but her grief turns to shock when the local doctor declares that she’s still pregnant. And while her fiance and his family seem delighted by the news, she begins to suspect their true motives are quiet sinister.
Rosemary's Baby (1968) springs to mind.
Could it be similar to this? An updated version. There's nothing quite like a good horror.
(11) Sea of Trees (7) by Chris Sparling
An American man takes a journey into the infamous “Suicide Forest” at the foothills of Mount Fuji with the intention of taking his own life. When he is interrupted by a Japanese man who has had second thoughts about his own suicide, and is trying to find his way out of the forest, the two begin a journey of reflection and survival.
A survival story? Very cool. One minute you're thinking about suicide, next you're trying to survive. Could be a lot of fun. Especially if the characters don't get along with each other.
(12) Fully Wrecked (8) by Jake Morse and Scott Wolman
An R-rated talking car from the ’80s is brought back into service and teamed up with the son of his former partner, a befuddled cop looking to earn his stripes.
An R-rated talking car? Where's KITT when you need him?
(13) The Shark Is Not Working (10) by Richard Cordiner
When his big break finally arrives, an idealistic young movie director, Steven Spielberg, risks failing to complete the movie Jaws when his 25-foot mechanical shark stops working.
A story about the problems they had on on the set of Jaws (1975). Very Interesting.
(14) 1969: A SPACE ODYSSEY OR HOW KUBRICK LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LAND ON THE MOON (13)
by Stephany Folsom
With NASA’s Apollo program in trouble and the Soviets threatening nuclear war, a female PR operative conspires with NASA’s Public Affairs Office to stage a fake moon landing in case Armstrong and Aldren fail, the goal being to generate public excitement that will aid the U.S. in winning the Cold War. But the op is faced with the biggest challenge of all: Filming the fake lunar landing with temperamental Stanley Kubrick.
Sounds like a lot of fun. Could be very good and very entertaining. Very Interesting.
(15) Broken Cove (14) by Declan O’Dwyer
After his brother is found brutally murdered, a man hellbent on revenge returns to his decrepit Irish fishing village home armed only with a mysterious list of names his brother left behind.
Revenge story. This sounds like it's very gritty.
There are plenty more.
Go here for the full list.
