Look back at the first films in each of the Godfather's of Slasher Films from 1974's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to 1978's Halloween, 1980's Friday The 13th and 1984's A Nightmare On Elm Street . These films are ICONIC for their own reasons and some would say the second films in each series was equally good but after that they quickly became stale and more about BOX OFFICE $$ more then the actual films themselves and that is the reason why Slashers were nearly killed in the 90's until the modern classic 1996's SCREAM was released and changed the game completely. I want to get back to the Classic Slasher flicks we all know and love and here is my FIVE POINT PLAN to make it happen .
#1. Write Better Scripts : Better Scripts mean better stories .
#2 Create Characters You Actually Care About : Invest MORE in the characters when writing. (ever if you want the annoying pot head character to get brutally murdered you still care about him)
#3 Create Antagonists that actually scare you : I want to create a killer that makes you afraid to walk across a rook to turn on a light, to walk across a dimly lite parking lot or walk in the woods.
#4 Write and Produce Better Kills / Death Scenes : This is a lost art form and I want to find it again and bring it to all future Wicked Carnival Productions .
#5 Limit The Number Of Sequels : This is the most important part of my plan because in the 80's and 90's the slasher genre was nearly laid to rest by the number of sequels coming out year after year and with all the movies coming out there was a lack of continuity that hurt the stories but kept the cash coming in, Slasher movies like anything else should be QUALITY over QUANTITY .
I care about the genre, that's why I got into film making was to make a difference, leave my mark on it and hopefully leave it better off then it was when I got here. I'm a writer, director and I own Wicked Carnival Productions but I'm a FAN at the end of the day and I bring that with me to production meetings, on set when we're shooting as well as when I'm talking to you folks on a video. I LOVE SLASHER MOVIES and I want nothing more then to #MakeSlashersGreatAgain .
