Logline: A weekend of debauchery turns to terror for a group of friends staying at an old lumberjack camp when a bloodthirsty log springs to life and embarks on a murderous rampage.
On today’s show, I had the extreme pleasure of speaking with Alison Parker (LOG, LAZER SLOTH). Seriously, it was a blast and she was a very generous (and understanding) guest.
She recently won the Canadian Film Fest’s Harold Greenberg Fund screenwriting competition with her script LOG. Now this is a script that embraced its concept. If you are interested in learning more about her or her projects, please check out the links below.

Here’s the script for the audio trailer:
Well, well here we are…Somewhere in the Pacific Northwest, as twentysomething Erica is heading to a long abandoned teen lumberjack camp she’s recently inherited from her parents in order to find out about the camp’s tragic history, and to learn more about her roots.
Accompanied by four friends, she intends to spruce the place up and knows she will need them for support as she sees the place where her father was murdered and her mother was the only suspect…but mom hasn’t spoken in twenty years.
Erica has been troubled her entire life with more questions than answers, especially about who she is, but this trip isn’t about learning the grisly details of the past, but trying to connect with her family, finding peace in her core, and, well…of course…partying.
If you were hoping for a story of innocence and discovery, you can forget all that nonsense…this isn’t that fuckin’ movie.
This movie here is about their direct encounter with the camp’s shady history and the one whose bite is worse than his bark. This is knot your ordinary, run of the mill killer.
When the gang realizes what they are up against, they shall pine for mercy…and are stumped by what to do next. Once the horror intensifies it becomes a real Pearl Arbor.
Be thankful this isn’t your nightmare, because if you happen to find yourself bent over or prostrate, well…let’s just say … it will be unpleasant…(queue music)
Welcome to a world where the sap is salty and the acorns sweet. And if you’re bushed from all the terrible wordplay, consider it your PUN-ishment.
Possibly arriving in theaters October 2018, LOG, may god have mercy on your hole.
This movie’s going to do for lumber what The Blair Witch Project did for state parks.
I hear Christopher Walken is playing the Log – this things got potential to be treelogy.
Oh look, someone’s left a wooden nickle on the ground…(queue music) oh shit.
**Original music to be composed and performed by Kenny Loggins…
…Well that was obvious…wasn’t it?**
