I’ve Been Watching Too Many Bad Horror Movies
It very well could be. I have to say that I’m not one hundred percent certain about this but it is possible. I have been watching rather a lot of them recently.
In the last few months I have probably seen a hundred and fifty or more different horror movies. Titles ranging from well known, almost classics, such as Blade, the Nightmare on Elm St. franchise, the Halloween films, Friday the 13th, to dozens of obscure zombie titles, assorted vampire stories and the inevitable films about this or that crazed killer.
I think the one big sign could be that I’ve been dreaming about horror movies lately. There is one thing about them though that makes me think that it might not *quite* be a case of watching too much. You see, I’m not dreaming about being one of the victims in such a dark scenario, I’m dreaming about *making* the movie.
The one example I can think of is about a woman who battles werewolves while wearing nothing but a baseball shirt that’s five sizes too small for her and wielding a rather impressive looking sword (not that anybody watching would look at the sword!). In each movie in that series it’s the same shirt except for the number on it which starts at “1” for the first movie and increments for each successive sequel.
One thing I’d like to know is where I came up with that one. Another good thing to know is can I come up with enough to actually write the script for something like that which would sell?
I may try to find out sometime
