Bloodlist 2017 aka The Best Unproduced Horror Screenplays Announced!

For those who might not know, The BloodList was created by Kailey Marsh way back in 2009 in an attempt to bring attention to the best-unproduced horror (or "dark genre") screenplays & pilots out there. 

Since then BloodList has become a major resource for producers searching for new and exciting material and on top of their annual list, BloodList has recently expanded into a producing, and financing entity.
