The Blood List is a survey of unproduced thriller and horror scripts voted upon by industry professionals. It is similar to the Black List and was created in 2009 by Kailey Marsh.[1] Steve Barton of Dread Central has called it "one of the most vital and necessary horror resources you'll ever need to break into the business".[2]

History[edit]

In 2013, they began offering a script-rating service. The ten highest-rated scripts are forwarded to judges for possible inclusion in the Blood List.[3] The next year, they partnered with Stage 32 for a contest open to new writers who do not yet have representation.[4]
