Hell Hole: The Official Screenplay

Hell Hole: The Official Screenplay
by Donald Firesmith and Leland Anderson
Genre: SciFi, Paranormal Horror

When a huge hole opens up in the path of a controversial new pipeline, the

oil company’s head of safety convinces her estranged husband to fly

up to Alaska’s North Slope and investigate. But when geologist Jack

Oswald rappels down into the mysterious pit, he discovers it is

unlike anything he has ever seen. Giant wolf-like creatures attack

the nearby protester camp, slaughtering both wildlife and people.

When they kill protesters and even the oil company’s armed guards,

a member of a secret society dedicated to defending humanity from

demons has no choice but to reveal herself. The survivors soon learn

there are worse monsters than hellhounds. To repair his broken

marriage, Jack only needs to save his wife, defeat a devil, seal the

hell hole, and put an end to Armageddon. What could possibly go wrong?

This movie script for the full-length feature film, Hell Hole, is based on

Donald Firesmith’s novel, Hell Holes: What Lurks Below.

Hell Holes
Book 1: What Lurks Below

It’s August in Alaska, and geology professor Jack Oswald prepares for the

new school year. But when hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appear

overnight in the frozen tundra north of the Arctic Circle, Jack

receives an unexpected phone call. An oil company exec hires Jack to

investigate, and he picks his climatologist wife and two of their

graduate students as his team. Uncharacteristically, Jack also lets

Aileen O’Shannon, a bewitchingly beautiful young photojournalist,

talk him into coming along as their photographer. When they arrive in

the remote oil town of Deadhorse, the exec and a biologist to protect

them from wild animals join the team. Their task: to assess the risk

of more holes opening under the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the wells

and pipelines that feed it. But they discover a far worse danger

lurks below. When it emerges, it threatens to shatter Jack’s

unshakable faith in science. And destroy us all…

Hell Holes
Book 2: Demons on the Dalton

When hundreds of huge holes mysteriously appeared overnight in the frozen

tundra north of the Arctic Circle, geologist Jack Oswald picked

Angele Menendez, his climatologist wife, to determine if the record

temperatures due to climate change was the cause. But the holes were

not natural. They were unnatural portals for an invading army of

demons. Together with Aileen O’Shannon, a 1,400-year-old sorceress

demon-hunter, the three survivors of the research team sent to study

the holes had only one chance: to flee down the dangerous Dalton

Highway towards the relative safety of Fairbanks. However, the

advancing horde of devils, imps, hellhounds, and gargoyles will stop

at nothing to prevent their prey from escaping. It is a 350-mile race

with simple rules. Win and live; lose and die…

A geek by day, Donald Firesmith works as a system and software engineer

helping the US Government acquire large, complex software-intensive

systems. In this guise, he has authored seven technical books,

written numerous software- and system-related articles and papers,

and spoken at more conferences than he can possibly remember. He’s

also proud to have been named a Distinguished Engineer by the

Association of Computing Machinery, although his pride is tempered

somewhat by his fear that the term “distinguished” makes

him sound like a graybeard academic rather than an active engineer

whose beard is still slightly more red than gray.

By night and on weekends, his alter ego writes modern paranormal

fantasy, apocalyptic science fiction, action and adventure novels and

relaxes by handcrafting magic wands from various magical woods and

mystical gemstones. His first foray into fiction is the book Magical

Wands: A Cornucopia of Wand Lore written under the pen name Wolfrick

Ignatius Feuerschmied. He lives in Crafton, Pennsylvania with his

wife Becky, and his son Dane, and varying numbers of dogs, cats, and birds.
