For those of you unfamiliar with the First Ten Pages Experiment, what I did was have longtime Scriptshadow readers send in a logline for their screenplay. The top five loglines, voted on by those readers, would get the first 10 pages of those scripts reviewed on the site this week. Well, the week is almost here and it's time for YOU GUYS to read those submissions. So here are the winners, with links to the pages. Now I've already read all five entries and I KNOW there is going to be a TON of discussion. However I don't want that discussion to begin until the reviews have been posted so I am CLOSING THE COMMENTS on this thread. This is a download post only. That being said, prepare to answer this simple question: Would you keep reading?
