So my first idea was a bit sick and twisted and my poster was just a disaster. This was my original idea.
Madison Merlot is an intelligent successful architect however she decides she wants to move from the city to a quiet town for her Daughter, Chloe. Upon arrival to their new house Madison is moving boxes when she notices her new neighbour (Cane) taking out the garbage. She decides to greet the unknown man however he refuses to meet her eye and reply’s with grunts. Madison thinks nothing more of his strange behaviour and continues to move the boxes. Later that night 6 year old Chloe begins to scream and cry for her mother. Madison quickly questions what is wrong when Chloe says she heard screaming from next door. Hearing no such sounds Madison assures her it was just a bad dream. The next day Madison begins to take empty boxes and rubbish to the bin when she notices a malodorous stench. She knocks on his door to ask where the smell is coming from however Cane is angered by her and grabs her collar and tells her to mind her own business. Madison shocked by his actions, punches her neighbour and runs back home. Cane full of anger later that night kidnaps Chloe and Madison and keeps them in his cellar. Madison wakes up to Chloe’s screams to see a dead bloody corpse on the floor with Cane leaning over it blood stained his skin and flesh in between his teeth. Four other people are also in the room a young 16 year old boy and a young married couple. Madison must work together with these strangers to save herself and her daughter from being devoured.
So Paige’s idea was really good I loved it especially the idea of a little girl killing everyone. This was her idea:
A teenage girl has a tragic accident, leaving her family traumatized and desperate to get her back. They hear about a witch doctor and take her to them. They beg and persuade the witch doctor to bring their daughter back to life. The witch doctor manages to bring her back into our world but what she brought back isn’t just the girl its something that doesn’t belong to our world. There’s a battle between the evil spirit and the girl trying to break through, leaving the girl looking innocent and helpless where as the evil spirit kills people around them.
I also really liked Emily’s idea as I thought it would be really good to film and I like the handheld element to the story.
A group of teenagers go camping in a ‘haunted’ forest. After the first night, they wake to find their car has been vandalised and food has been stolen. Over the next few days, they realise more and more of their stuff is going missing, until one of the girls goes missing. When they find her dead, brutally murdered, hanging from a tree, they realise that someone is there with them and that the forest may really be haunted. Filmed on a hand-held camera, they go looking for the edge of the forest to get home. One by one they are picked off and killed in disgusting ways.
So I thought W aqar’s idea was interesting but confusing I didn’t really understand it, this is his idea:
The storyline follows the life of a serial killer who preselects victims through childhood memories of neglect. Victims are executed by means of exerting excessive thrust upon victim’s thoracic regions of the spinal cord. This leads to an intentional forward motion of the body, enabling the plummeting of the victim’s body vertically, usually down an elevated building.
So we all had very different ideas but everybody agreed that we liked Emily’s story best so we decided to use this but also combined the antagonist in Paige’s story (a small dead girl) and use it in the story.
We all changed our posters so it would be the same as our website and trailer. You will see we all have a very different view on the story.
