James Mulcahy’s horror comedy script @MurderHouse has been named the first Launch Pad Recommended script of 2021. A rare honor bestowed on only a small percentage of scripts submitted to our coverage service, the LP Recommends program has a history of success in identifying great emerging talent and promising projects.
@MurderHouse is a contained horror comedy feature script set in the world of social media influencers, which follows a group of popular content creators who are invited to a collab house to build buzz for a mysterious app. When they arrive, they are forced to kill each other one-by-one, and post about every detail.
Our reader said that “this script deserves consideration from any producer looking for an engaging, gory horror film,” and that the project is “laugh out loud funny while never losing its tension and energy.”
James is currently a video producer for one of the world’s largest tech companies. His documentary-style pieces have been recognized with four local Emmys and a Webby. His work as food journalist, video producer and restaurant blogger garnered two James Beard Award nominations.
