Logline: When there's a shooting in your high school during senior year, not everybody who comes to your twentieth reunion will be in human form.

WGA Registration Number: 1260739
Pitch: Every high school reunion has ghosts, and the twentieth reunion of John F. Kennedy High School's class of 1993 has more ghosts than most. In the aftermath of the rampage in the halls and classrooms by Archie Reynolds and Richard Little, which left seventeen dead and many more injured, everyone has memories and traumas from that day that they can't forget.

Fortunately, there are blobs from another dimension, the spirits of some of the victims, who have come to save the day. The Blob Supervisor allows them to take on human form for one night to reconnect with their friends. What the Blob Supervisor hadn't counted on was that the ghosts of Archie Reynolds and Richard Little are also there. When two of the blobs see them, they give up their human form and fly around the room to protect the reunion people below.

Tension erupts early, when Wendy Green, whose brother was shot by Archie Reynolds, punches out Gary Snodgrass, who knew about the attacks in advance and did nothing to stop them. Then, after an emotional moment during an award ceremony for a teacher crippled in the attacks, Jay Daniels and his buddies use apps on their cell phones to make the sound of gunshots, sending everybody into a panic.

The climax comes during a confrontation between Grace Moore, the former student body president and Hollywood actress turned nun, and Ted Blake, a drunken forty-something, who crashes the reunion. Ted pulls a gun, and demands that Linda Jefferson, his ex-wife, come home with him. Grace intervenes by offering to give Ted a blowjob in front of everybody, and when he is distracted, Grace performs a ju-jitsu move on him. Holding his arm behind his back, she tells him to drop his gun. He refuses and fires twice, killing the ghosts of Archie and Richard, who are circling overhead and enjoying the spectacle. When Ted won't drop his gun, Grace breaks his wrist and he collapses. She then gives him a Percocet, kneels, and prays for his soul.

In short, SCHOOL SPIRITS dramatizes the problem of gun violence in America directly, but without a political agenda, and does so in a way that offers closure for victims and hope for the future.
