Story Starter: 07

The task: to come up with three loglines (very short story descriptions) based on the image. The point: to stay creative and hone my ability as a screenwriter to write loglines.

All images can be found on my Story Starter Pinterest board.


  1. A depressed man tries to commit suicide but only succeeds in sending himself into a sort of purgatory where he must fight off a supernatural foe to free the souls of five strangers.
  2. A mischievous spirit tries to find freedom from her warring world through a portal that leads to an abandoned motel pool on Earth only to encounter a young man who might be a serial killer.
  3. Two runaways meet each other at an abandoned motel and pretend to live as quaint motel owners when people start showing up thinking the place is open for business.


Rate each logline!

Award stars based on your interest in the loglines! Do they have characters, themes, and imagery that intrigue you? Would you watch that movie? Give it 5 stars for something you're super excited about all the way to 1 star for something you stopped reading because you were so disinterested in it.

Pick your favorite!

If you could only pick one logline, one movie to go see, which one would it be?
