Pittsburgh and Rome: ADC Films, 1992. Second Draft script for the 1993 film, INSCRIBED by screenwriter and author T.E.D. Klein, on the title page, "To Stanley - / Avoid this movie!!! / T.E.D. Klein." Theodore 'Eibon' Donald Klein (T.E.D. Klein) is an American horror writer and editor, who, despite his sparse output, is highly regarded for his meticulous prose and provocative essays. He was the acclaimed editor of The Twilight Zone Magazine from 1981 to 1985, and author of the bestselling novel "The Ceremonies" (1984), and the award winning four novella collection "Dark Gods" (1985). "Trauma" is his only screenplay.

Dario Argento's underrated first feature-length American production, a giallo horror film wherein Asia Argento stars as Aura, an anorexic young woman, who, with the help of her new young lover David, searches for "The Headhunter" killer responsible for the beheading of both of her parents. Asia Argento's character was partly inspired by her half-sister Anna, who suffered from anorexia and died in a scooter accident shortly before the film's release (and is seen during the closing credits sequence). Featuring memorable performances from Piper Laurie, Frederic Forrest, and Brad Dourif.

Set in Minneapolis, shot on location in Minneapolis, Hopkins, and St. Paul, Minnesota.
