"You've accomplished a miracle -- a truly engaging and horrifying genre piece that completely avoids the recent trend toward over the top unnecessary gore. There's great scenes of suspense, lots of great relationships, and a lot of very memorable and likable characters. You have a handle on pacing, exposition, dialogue, and professional formatting. Very well done."                       ~ WILDsound Film Festival

 

... a dual reality horror, evocative of The Cell."

The Sleeping Deep is an effects-driven dual reality horror, evocative of The Cell. This was one of my most favorite scripts from this year’s competition season. It’s a 
fantastic read!”           ~ Monica Partridge, Competition Reader and Story Editor

 

"You have written an effective thriller that's filled with dangerous situations, terrific Native American lore, sympathetic characters that we care about and those we root for and want to see win, and exciting and unique action sequences."    
                                                                 ~ Bluecat Screenplay Competition

 

“An unsettling story laced with imagery and characters that will stay with you long after you wish they’d gone.”
                                                                  ~ Chip Street, WriteClubChallenge.com

 

"Nice job balancing homage, horror and humor. This kind of genre work so often trips over cliches and flat dialogue, and I thought you dodged those two pitfalls with finesse. A very, very solid piece of work."
                                                               ~ Michael Gillis, Roundtable Pictures

 

"It is a very impressive script... in the true spirit of H.P. [Lovecraft]"
                                                              ~ Emeric Spooner, Maine Supernatural

 

"Jeffrey Blake Palmer's nightmare parade The Sleeping Deep rose to the top..."
