Synopsis for "The Mark of X"

Grace Deems is a scriptwriter for TV movies. Her producer, Harry Banning, is trying to cajole her into imagining some new successful script. Grace goes home that night and has a nightmare about a large, grotesque creature who berates her for summoning it. She awakens, resolves to call the creature X, and creates a new show based around it. The new "X" show is popular around the country, frightening couples watching on TV and causing people to pass out from fright at the big-screen version. Just when Grace is at the top of her career, a young woman named Gloria is found dead with the mark of a cloven hoof, X's cloven hoof, on her forehead. The X creature even attacks the cast and crew on the set, and hits director Hal Wallace with its cloven hoof. From coast to coast come reports of X attacking and even killing average people. Grace confronts her producer and declares she will no longer write stories about X. She returns home and is attacked by X but passes out before it can kill her. A man who works with Grace named George arrives to revive her and reveals the truth of the matter. He and Banning set up all the attacks and reports across the country to drum up publicity for X. As George leaves, Grace tries to go to sleep but is startled by a crash. She goes downstairs to see that George has fallen and been killed with the mark of X on his forehead. Grace wonders if X was real and if it is coming for her next.
