A bit confusing but Decent movie
2 November 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw a trailer for this movie and was looking forward to seeing it.I really liked James Van Der Beek in the movie called "the plague". Final draft starts off with his character having a weird nightmare and then starts off pretty normal from there until he starts to encounter strange people.There are not many characters in this film but it was still well acted.James plays Paul, a lonely writer who seems to only have 1 friend and a past that we see clips of through his home videos.He is determined to write a screenplay and locks himself in his apartment to write a story from his childhood about a clown who gets set on fire and dies on stage during a performance as some kids are laughing at him as he perishes in the flames.The clown then comes back from the dead to get revenge on the now grown up kids.Paul and his brother were at the show as kids.It has troubled him ever since and he is haunted by thoughts of the kids laughing at him dying being the last thing the clown saw before he died.He is seeing spooky visions of the clown and the people around him are being terrorized mysteriously.Cabin fever sets in and he is living bad dreams.It is hard to distinguish between reality and fiction in this movie, and is a little confusing because there were so many flashbacks in his head happening all at once without much detail or explanation.The characters were a bit undeveloped but it was still a decent movie that makes you think.
