back to bio

Geoff Holder's Oscar-bait screenplay ZOMBIE PATROL has won the International Horror Screenplay Competition run by Visceral Films. It's now in development for their 2016 production slate with a $2million budget. 

    A newly-created zombie wants to return to life so he can woo the girl he loves - but first he has to deal with the vicious biker gang who want to take over the horror theme park where he works as a pretend zombie.

    Visceral Film's President Scott Wohlstein said: "Geoff Holder's story works in so many different ways - it's a character-driven horror rompfest complete with humor and a great story arc. It highlights the Land of Illusion theme park and the mission of the contest perfectly."

THE DRAGON RIDER by Geoff Holder wins Honorable Mention in WISC

Geoff Holder's sci-fi THE DRAGON RIDER gains Honorable Mention (4th Place) in the WeScreenplay International Screenplay Competition. 


A few comments from the judges:
"This is a terrific piece that does an excellent job of making the impossible probable. The core of the story is strong and offers a truly exciting adventure."

"Filled with chair gripping action, The Dragon Rider is a fun yet somewhat campy fantasy romp with a cast of unique characters who manage to stand out while not upstaging our protagonist. Sigourney Weaver like heroine Jane is nicely complex, dark yet likable, helping give body to an extremely enjoyable tale."


Congratulations to all the winners.
