MARVIN [M] 59 lines
16, the studious, kind of dorky one, a fan of horror movies. Recently started dating Sasha.
BROOKE [W] 38 lines
18, the jock who’s good at everything she does. Is dating Nate because he’s quite attractive. Not one for feelings.
SASHA [W] 68 lines
Brooke’s best friend, dating Marvin, also a fan of horror movies, and clearly would be the “last girl” in horror movies because she is the least threatening and most likable.
NATE [M] 36 lines
17, the traditional heartthrob with nothing else to offer; dating Brooke and is Erika’s brother, though he has his doubts about this.
ERIKA [W] 28 lines
The friend who’s the least likable and most expendable of the group. Also, Nate’s sister.
PIPPA VANDERWAY [W] 93 lines
A serial killer, reminiscent of 80’s Slasher films. Well, except for the fact that she’s British, wears paint-splattered overalls, has pigtails, and is terrible at it.
