Logline

Alissa had been visited by the nightmare apparition, on and off, for as long as she could recall. He would stand at the foot of the bed, whispering. He never moved from that spot... not until Zach showed up. Since Zach had made it his mission to ruin her waking life, the longneck man had gained new abilities; moving, hiding, hunting... If only Alissa could figure out the connection between Zach and the longneck man she might stand a chance.
