Breath of the Dead
So that's it, the new title for the 80s Slasher Flick, which is really more just an 80s horror movie in general now. Struggled with this one for the longest time. We really wanted something kinda vague, that almost doesn't suit the movie but does once you watch it - although you'll have to figure it out on your own.
In any case, that's some progress made on this one. We're hoping to get the plot roughed out in the next few weeks, too many movies make their characters do stupid unrealistic things just to move the plot along, set up various deaths or just to get themselves out of a corner they've written themselves into. One thing we really want to do is to make sure no one does anything overly stupid, there's realistically stupid and then there's "no one would ever do that in that situation" stupid. We'd like to avoid the later.
Then it's onto designing the special effects - that's going to be the best part of this shoot. With the literally thousands, of onscreen horror movie deaths, it'll be hard coming up with a couple original ones. It'd be nice to have a couple that really make you squirm when you see them.
And lastly there's the makeup aspect of the movie. Not only is the killer horribly disfigured, but he's also been dead for some time and now is undead, having been raised through evil voodoo - should be swanky. The other major makeup job is taking a 20some year old girl and making her look like a crazy 90some year old voodoo lady whose been living in the woods for about 75 years on her own - even swankier.
If all goes as planned, this one will be full HD as well.
