In fact, i've started writing potential themes and character stories in order to find interesting things to add to the clock tower movie's story...however, i'll only share it with you guys tomorrow, cause i'm going to sleep.
You know, this make so much sense thinking about it, the real monster always was her in a way, now is very well done as with allison as her lead, allow very unique interpretations, yeah Clock Tower OTL played the tropes of Horror in conventinal way, here we played again with unconventional ways, could work well in the gallio style of Argento influenceMary barrows
Cunning, manipulative. She imprisons the girls in the barrows castle to see which one of them is worthy of being the daughter she never had. A real elizabeth bathory-type. (This character's the hardest to write for me...i not sure at all what kind of story i wanna tell with her.)
Ummm maybe some other horror actress? we might need to skim, but post scream there where a lot of horror movies tooAs for actresses to play jennifer's friends...to be honest, i don't really know who to pick. It's hard for me to think about teenage actresses capable of pulling off complex characters like those on my draft.
Yeah, you're right, they didn't really talked about feminism/SJW back then. Hell, i grew up in the late 90-00s, so i should've remembered that. But, surely, there must have been some sort of equivalent to the feminism or strong, independant women agenda that the world is pushing nowadays back then, right? Cause what i wanted to do with anne is that, in the first act, the movie shows her as this strong, independant woman, but, when shit slowly but surely hits the fan, we reveal her true nature as a selfish, insecure coward, and the one that lasts to the end is the most feminine-looking, vulnerable (well, she looks vulnerable. she actually isn't, but you know what i mean) and reserved of the group in jennifer.
Like i said, the downplaying of the occult/satanic element is mainly because of my personal preference for more subtle, psychological horror. I know its part of the argento influence, but...yeah, it's mostly because of my personal tastes, sorry. You can make the giant, deformed baby in the basement a hideously deformed fetus a la eraserhead or PT instead, i dunno...
Also, another preference of mine is to have a slow build-up of the characters, so that we gradually reveal their issues with each other before the deaths happen. Like that, the deaths would have more emotional impact and they would keep the audience on their toes, making them feel lime everybody could die at any moments. I also like the characters dying deaths that fits either their personality or their goals and ambitions. That's why i said that anne, the supposed strong leader, dies a coward's death
90s-2000s was the time of third wave feminism.
I'd say that the themes of it wouldn't mix with the overall plot. Especially given De Palma himself faced accusation of being misogynistic by critics. The slow build will certainly work, especially since this won't be a movie with a heavy body count. I think another reason for having Anne die second is that usually, the second one to die in horror films is the one that takes command and tries to keep things together. Have Anne try that after Laura dies and it all just goes to shit, she throws Jennifer to Bobby and makes a run for it, then gets thrown out a window later.
So far we need to cast the other girls, Clock Tower could be a trully suprise hit both in universe and for us, specially how the movie is shaping, could work as decon-recon horror movie as scream was too
It is VA. As for Spyro, I'm basing his movie counterpart off the Legend of Spyro. So I thinking someone young a la Haley Joel Osmont. As for Carrey or Smith, he could do Ripto.As that is VA....i'll got tangential...can we use Celebrity VA? i could imagine Spyro as Jim Carrey or Will Smith some SNL comedian...
He would be very good on it and if play his card right, would be the official voice of Spyro even on later movies. i think Smith could work well for Hunter,,carrey might be for other movieIt is VA. As for Spyro, I'm basing his movie counterpart off the Legend of Spyro. So I thinking someone young a la Haley Joel Osmont. As for Carrey or Smith, he could do Ripto.
