Initial ideas presentation

  1. 1. Initial Ideas<br />Inspiring Horror Films<br />
  2. 2. The Blair Witch Project<br />Release Date: 22 October 1999 (UK)<br />Budget: $60,000 (estimated)Opening Weekend: $29,207,381 (USA) (1 August 1999) (1101 Screens)Gross: $140,530,114 (USA) (7 November 1999)<br />A lot of the horror and suspense happens off-screen with things we cannot see. This creates a fear of the unknown and is what made the film successful. It is also low budget and uses a handheld camera.<br />
  3. 3. Paranormal Activity<br />Release Date: 25 November 2009 (UK)<br />Budget: $15,000 (estimated) <br />Opening Weekend: $77,873 (USA) (27 September 2009) (12 Screens)<br />Gross: $107,917,283 (USA) (17 January 2010)<br />Another low budget film that was very effective in scaring audiences. Unlike The Blair Witch Project, we do see a lot of ‘paranormal activity’ towards the end but at the beginning of the film it is mainly implied.<br />
  4. 4. Saw<br />Release Date: 1 October 2004 (UK)<br />Budget: $1,200,000 (estimated)<br />Opening Weekend: $18,276,468 (USA) (31 October 2004)<br />Gross: $55,153,403 (USA) (26 December 2004)<br />Horror element is gained primarily from excessive blood and gore but also teaches a lesson; value your life. Viewers may also fear being kidnapped by someone wearing a pig mask and tortured.<br />
  5. 5. Scream<br />Release Date: 2 May 1997 (UK)<br />Budget: $15,000,000 (estimated)<br />Opening Weekend: $6,354,586 (USA) (22 December 1996)<br />Gross: $103,001,286 (USA) (20 July 1997)<br />It sticks to classic slasher conventions while also using dialogue to show characters are aware of these conventions. This is very inventive dynamic to the film.<br />
  6. 6. A Nightmare on Elm Street<br />Release Date: 16 November 1984 (USA)<br />Budget: $1,800,000 (estimated)<br />Opening Weekend: $1,271,000 (USA) (11 November 1984)<br />Gross: $10,777,659 (USA) (27 January 1985)<br />A classic horror film with a terrifying concept. Freddy kills people in their dreams if they know his name, this can easily relate to the viewer and scare them.<br />
