THE FEATURE FILM SCREENPLAY
"After a nation finds themselves glued to live national broadcasts of uncensored terrorism, Television networks begin battling over their integrity versus ratings to show more."
American Hell is a thriller / suspense that partially delves into the ethics of journalism in reporting news versus inspiring public demand to push the envelope and see more. With themes touching on Paddy Chayefsky’s Network (1976) while employing a subtle supernatural setting to that of Taylor Hackford’s The Devil’s Advocate (1997), this story tackles themes of America’s dangerous and fascinating obsession with violence.
One central plot and backbone to the multi-protagonist design is that of Cambion Group, a wild four-man crew of terrorists who inspire allusions of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Their events are filmed by themselves and sent out live to any network bold enough to broadcast. They act as the deeply troubled and violently unpredictable central groups in such films as Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange (1971), Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting (1996) or Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects (2005). Whether conscious to their actions, what’s clear is that they act as the catalyst to a revolution no one asked for. Through these acts of violence and affairs, they also bring transparency to corruption and punish the wicked, dividing those who see them as a cause of necessary reform and those who see violence as violence.
Within the first act, three of the wider plots are introduced with their own cast of characters: Cambion Group strives to inspire society to tear itself apart and start from scratch under the guidance of their enigmatic employer who sees himself as Lucifer, God and a simple man with a vision depending on the day; the television network executives fight over sponsorship with integrity versus competition while the ambitious young producers in the making fight for the controversy and work to develop Cambion as reality programming; lastly, the slow arm of law takes longer to categorize the threat for the right department while one idealistic junior agent takes it upon himself to investigate, crossing the fine line between respecting American liberties and his duty to protect people from the sadistic minds behind this.
