It is about a reoccurring nightmare.
In the nightmare there will be two young girls playing on a swing whilst humming
a nursery rhyme
There will be several cuts between the two scenes of the women sleeping and
the what is going on in her nightmare
In the shots of the women you will see her become distressed by the nightmare
She will wake up and turn her side lamp on
She gets her diary from under her pillow
As she starts to write, flashes of the nightmare will be seen again- these will be
shorter that the previous shots.
She will then draw a ? In her diary- to show that she is confused
In the last shot, the girls in the nightmare would have disappeared and it will just
be the swing swinging.
We were inspired by the se7en opening for the following reasons:
It cuts between different clips
The sense of mystery
The way they replaced the ‘v’ for a ‘7’
The dark lighting
The length of the shot-fast
We were also inspired by American horror story for the following
• The sense of mystery
• Cut between different clips
• Credits- on a black background and they flicker.
We were influenced by the conventions in the women in
black such as:
• Costumes- old fashioned white dresses
• Enigma code
• Nursery rhyme
• Dark lighting
We will assign our film to Hammer productions due to their big
budget and their success with horror films
We have decided to give it the classification of 15 as we believe
that a 12 year old would not understand the storyline.
However it would not be an 18 due to the lack of sexual
violence, blood and gore.
