Settings: Part 15

Paging my armchair directors! It's time for another fun-filled game of imaginary movie making! For my new readers, this is where I stomp my feet like Louis B. Mayer and demand that you come up with a great story for the location.

So, don't let me down, people ... if this were a scene in a film, what would happen in it?

With the recent rash of vampire sitings, the Southmark police are zeroing in on those dumpsters as a possible place of congregation by the blood thirsty ghouls. By the light of day, the only remnants seen are pieces of tree limbs, bringing the law enforcement to the conclusion that they have beavers for pets.

I'm thinking Porky Pig. I'm thinking axes and wood processing plant. I'm thinking plucky chipmunks saving their forest home with lots of mirthful scheming and lisping.

Juvenile: When a dog is abandoned by its owners in a locked storage compound with no food or water, all the city animals... birds, squirrels, rats, and a flock of parrots... build an escape ramp for the dog to climb and set himself free.

Horror: A serial killer dumps victim after victim in a storage bin in an abandoned compound. The bin... originally rusty gray... grows redder and redder and redder with the deposit of each victim, attracting the puzzled attention of passers-by. One, a retired detective, stakes out the site and catches the killer... how else...? Red-handed

Comedy: Two homeless slackers move into an abandoned storage area and take up residence in the dumpsters. Then they discover that a homeless woman also lives there, in the red storage unit, and wants them out. They play stupid pranks on each other until they discover she is a former vaudeville star. Then they develop a show for all the homeless people in the neighborhood, which attracts media attention, and NBC buys their story for a sitcom. The two slackers move to Beverly Hills. The homeless woman buys the storage compound and continues to live in the red unit.

Romance:The step daughter of an evil slum landlady is forced to clean a ratty storage area while her two ugly step sisters prepare to attend the Oscars. When a Hollywood actor who has been nominated for an award visits the compound in search of the lucky underwear he accidentally sent into storage, he is stuck by the step daughter's beauty. They go to the Oscars together, both wearing vintage clothing (including the lucky underwear) they find in the storage unit. The actor wins, and the beautiful girl attracts the attention of Quentin Tarrantino, who decides she is perfect for a role in his new film.

I'm glad a few of you rose to the occassion. Maybe the thought of Louis b Mayer as Shirley Temple gave us pause. (Or was that just me? Oh yeah, well, probably.)

Crime Drama/Horror: A mad scientist accidentally brings a demented version of Geppetto back to life with DNA experiments. Geppetto escapes and holes up in a storage facility, where he whittles a new eight-foot, anatomically-correct Pinocchio out of a tree. After filming an ultra-low-budget porn/slasher pic at a deserted house near the corner of Meridian and Mission in South Pasadena entitled "Return of Woody," they both head off to Hollywood to certain fame and fortune.
