In this Feature Film Optioned, 200 page critically acclaimed psych-horror
epic, a young man is visited by an Angel bearing the New Commandments, and
an offer: should the man complete each of the Commandments, his family will
be granted an eternal place in God's House.
But has this quest truly been sent from Heaven, or is it simply the imaginings of a madman with a mind from Hell?
The List is a work which respects the intelligence of its audience, challenging the reader to piece together the events and hidden clues as they search for reason amongst the insanity.
Relentlessly brutal, challenging and confronting, The List creates a waking nightmare, employing disturbing themes and psychological implications to as opposed to cheap scare tactics to tap into its reader's psyche. It leaves an unshakable impression.
"The finale to The List was as harrowing a read as I expected from the set-up... Days later I'm still digesting the symbolism of its emotionally-charged ending, dissecting events and reinterpreting their meaning over and over. A rare phenomenon these days for someone who finds it near impossible to remember from one month to the next what happened in the previous issues of the few super-hero books he still reads."
"You won't find anything else quite like this out there. This is something that you can get so much out of; you'll be thinking about it and examining it and then find yourself going back again. It really is wonderful when a creation can have that affect, and The List certainly made an impact on me. "
"Bedford, Pop and Bonin deliver a masterpiece. 10/10."
"Bedford controls the story and the reader's access to it masterfully. If The List was a movie, you couldn't be blamed for thinking that Polanski, Kubrick or maybe even Scorsese had a hand in things."
