For Task 3, we had to do some research in order to help us make decisions on what to do for our film, the point of the research is to look at films of a similar genre and learn from what they got right and what they got wrong.
I decided to look at parodies of horror films, like the scary movie series as my own film is going to parody horror films. I also looked at Dark Corners Reviews on YouTube, who reviews a lot of old B-Movies. These horror B-Movies are a large part of what inspired me, films like ‘They Came From Beyond Space’ especially, where it turns out that the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.
Another source of research were slasher films, where the victims are being stalked by a killer. a big inspiration in this regard were the ‘Scream’ films, where a killer hunts down victims while speaking to them on the telephone. I parodied this in my film by having the supposed killer sending text messages to the victim.
