  1. 1. Thriller Ideas
  2. 2. 1. • • OPENING TITLE SEQUENCE- A guy is sitting in a cafe. He see’s his reflection in the cup of tea in his hands; it is distorted because he is shaking. He anxiously looks at the people round him , they are talking and chatty and happy (diegetic sound). Wave of guilt goes over his face. Cut to a shot of the bulge in his pocket. The guy is waiting for the perfect moment to take his chance. Slowly he begins to descend from the booth and makes his way towards a table in the centre of the room. The crowd has not noticed him yet. As he climbs up onto the top of the table, he starts to gain attraction from the customers. He shoots from his gun. Immediately there are screams and the room becomes chaotic. The guy is sweating and looking down at the floor. He shouts out at the customers to put all their belongings on the table in front of him. People are cautious to respond. He shoots again. This time screaming from the bottom of his lungs he gets everyone to do as their told. As he crouches to grab the money and jewellery below him, he receives a blow to the back of his head and blackout. PLOT – The rest of the film tells the story of how the guy got to where he is in the diner and why he needed the money.
  3. 3. 2. • PLOT – A ghost haunts the man that murdered her. She mentally tortures the man, but he still craves the wave of emotions and satisfaction he gets from taking a life. The ghost is driving him crazy, we learn that in order to drive the ghost away that he must kill again and take on the ghost of another victim. Each ghost is different and treats him differently so we learn different aspects of the guy’s personality. • OPENING SEQUENCE- it begins with a girl (age undecided) waking up to a crash from downstairs in a room like a kitchen. She slowly gets out of bed to see what the commotion is. She tiptoes out to the hall, been drawn in by the noises and she reacts to every crash and shout, she is very anxious and fidgety. At the top of the stairs we see her looking towards the light through the banisters of a staircase. There is one last bang, and immediately the girl realises that she’s in danger and rushes back to her bedroom. Closing the door behind her and turning off the lights again, she frantically searches for a place she could hide. She crawls under her bed, waiting hesitantly for the inevitable. The sound you hear when she is under the bed is her light breathing and heavy footsteps ascending up the stairs. We see the door opening and a silhouette of a male shoes walking in towards the edge of her bed. Cut to the girl and her reactions of the male presence.
  4. 4. 3. • • PLOT: two men take hostage two people because they are involved in heavy drug deals, which they have not been able to pay off their rightful debts. The hostages are taken to this gang leader, where they are told that they have 48 hours to get the money together for this gang leader. This film follows the debtors go on this adventure of finding all these weird and wacky ways of getting this money. OPENING TITLE SEQUENCE: It starts with two, rough looking van drivers. They are wearing beany hats and loose track suits to give a scruffy and dodgy look. The two drivers finish off a cigarette on the side of a motorway/busy road and go to shut the boot of a plan white van. The boot however is not revealed to the audience. The drivers enter the van and try to start the car however it isn’t working. The driver’s reacts badly to this, which gives away to the audience a violent and harsh personality, but eventually gets the car going. It cuts to the journey of the van and eventually they reach a security barrier with policemen and are shown a wanted poster. Here is some casual dialogue between the security and the driver about not recognising the pictures. During this the driver and passage make suspicious eye contact with each other and look in the rear view mirror obviously. The audience still had no idea about what is in the back of the van. The van passes through the security check and arrives at their destination, warehouse, or abandoned building site (somewhere dark but socially realistic). They park up outside and opening the boot, here you find 2 young male hostages inside.
  5. 5. 4. • • PLOT: A man has severe Obsessive-compulsive disorders however you find one of his obsessed beliefs is killing beautiful women. OPENING TITLE SEQUENCE: We begin with following him through his morning routine. Firstly waking up in an extremely tidy room where everything is perfect, pills on his bedside table perfectly lined up and books on the shelf are in alphabetical order. We then see the man eating his breakfast at the kitchen table, checking that each cut of his crusts is symmetrical. The camera cuts to the man counting his money. Cuts to him putting his house alarms on, and having to click the lights on and off 10 times before entering or leaving a room. The camera cuts again to him walking to work, not stepping in the cracks, avoiding any contact with people, and behaving abnormally. The character always has on him a secret book that is later revealed to the audience. When he flicks through the pages, we see pictures of a beautiful dead girl, lying down on the floor, positioned neatly, revealing to the audience that he is a killer.
