On The Mountain of the White Monkey

A golden-throated Brit and his sidekick try to survive an exclusive gala for the devil’s daughter during the Annual Convention of Witches and Wizards in Catemaco, Mexico.


At a haunted house on Halloween, high school senior Jordan Peale meets a pretty teen in foster-care named Caley. After a gruesome car accident, she disappears. Five years later he meets her again in a diner outside Brownsville, only now her pretty face is scarred with scratch marks and she calls herself Hannah. Jordan is on assignment to film a Halloween documentary and is slated to cover the annual event in Catemaco at the foot of The Mountain of the White Monkey. He tells Hannah he remembers her but she denies it and warns him against going to Catemaco. He wants to know why, but she won’t tell him. Later, after he and his hilarious cameraman Martin battle thieves, witches, spiders, snakes, and a large hair-covered man whose calling card is serpentine patterns of mud, he begins to suspect this girl is not just part of the story, but that she is the story. And now he’s part of it too, because he’s crazy in love with her, but one doesn’t just fall for the daughter of the devil and expect to start picking out china patterns…or go on living.

(Authors note: This was originally conceived as a screenplay, so if it seems goofier than my usual fare, you know what I was going for, ha ha.)
