Why doesn't Babz ever want low concept talky dramas? It's like she's intentionally trying to keep me down... Lol. =)
The big question is, though, if you remove all that conventional wisdom that is responsible for so many horror movie deaths, how are you supposed to have your characters killed? Have them actually be smart? Lol. Don't make me laugh.
Well, killing off more clever characters is more interesting and fun, but you have to remember, we're trying to make a movie here, not a film. These are supposed to be stupid archetypes in cliched situations... =)
Have to say the critical part is more the method you use to kill them rather that the personality of the characters.
Spoken like a true producer. Who cares about things like... I don't know, plot and characters? It's all about the kills. After all, who the hell can name the main characters from Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street anyway? Lol. I kid, I kid. Truth is, you can tell the pure slashers from the real horror movies. Between Halloween, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, which one felt less like an actual horror movie than just a slasher? Think about it. =)
it's funny but for me it's more about the unexpected. The subtle. Now, grant it Exorcist was all of that and IN YOUR FACE, too. But when I read Insidious for example; GRIPPING and oft times (can't even believe I can use oft in a sentence lol), subtle.
Horror can be so many things. Different things scare different people. Some people just like a gore fest. Others like their horror to be funny. Others more of a mystery. It doesn't matter, as long as you feel a little something it's all good. The horror films that do well with a broader audience tend to have a better story behind it, but that does not by any means, it will be loved by all horror fans. There's a niche audience for everything. My personal favorite is psychological horror. I wish I could write it, but I just don't have enough knowledge about the human psyche to be able to pull that off. I'm fascinated by the dark side of humans. To me, the only monsters out there are people. Vampires, werewolves, aliens, they don't scare me. Only a crazy human do.
