“I want to spin my little watch right before your eyes
You're the kind of girl a guy like me could hypnotize
And if this comes as a surprise, just think of all those guys who would tell you lies
I want to spin my little watch right before your eyes”
-“Hypnotize,” The White Stripes
A black comedy centered on five high school social outcasts and delinquents, who find themselves teaming up to target the social and economic “superiors” that have victimized them year after year, and get the revenge they each so rightfully deserve. The plan ends in success, the five get their vengeance, and all is right.
Except… it doesn't end there.
In the aftermath of their grand scheme, the five experience a simultaneous rush. A craving that isn't satisfied. Social humiliation won't cut it. In their quest to please this beast, their necessary actions grow increasingly dark. Vandalism… Robbery… Murder. All the while, an aging cop hunts down the teens in an attempt to return his sleepy small town to its normal state.
*Logan Lawson - the de facto leader of the “gang.” His only sense of empathy comes through his twisted relationship with the rest of the group, most notably Maggie.
*Margaret “Maggie” Porter - the completely remorseless “second-in-command.” Her motivations regarding her ties to the group are completely grey, but she shares a close bond with Logan in particular.
*Jodie White - a highly manipulative, sexually deviant trickster.
*Adam Gonzales - a destructive pyromaniac and fledgling arsonist.
*Isaac Caldwell - a stealthy pickpocket and thief, just so long as his temper stays under control.
*Officer Bill Bradford - an aging police chief who hunts down the elusive five in order to bring justice to his town and ease into his retirement in peace.
Comparison pitch: The Breakfast Club meets American Psycho, with hints of A Clockwork Orange and Heathers. Rated R for strong violence, sexuality, drug use and language.
