A Woman's Touch

A feature-length horror-comedy loosely based on 'Frankenstein', in which a deranged woman tries to create the perfect man – by harvesting her one favorite body part from each of the imperfect
men she dates. Of course, she has to kill these men first, in order to obtain their body parts. But beneath the murder and mayhem is a simple story of someone needing to be loved.

Writer Statement

This script idea was hatched by Marilisa Walker, based on several bad dating experiences. She thought it would be great if she could take parts of each of the imperfect men she dated to create one perfect whole man. She brought Daniel Guyton on to help co-write it, since he had a more extensive writing background - and an equally wicked sense of humor. The two wrote this script together over several months - laughing and gasping at each other in horror the entire time.
