R+P Post 4: Our film's genre, title and plot outline


Genre: Horror/thriller

Themes: Suspense, mystery, psychological issues, final girl

The Joker from The Dark Knight has extreme psychological issues and this is used to create suspense and mystery, therefore it was a key inspiration to us

Plot Outline:
 Two teenagers go missing, and the next day there is a news report regarding the incident. The news reporter at the scene of the event is about to explain what happens and in the middle of the account the unknown force/criminal makes his second attack by capturing the reporter and then the cameraman. The protagonist of the story is a university student who studies criminology. Her and her classmates try to face the force themselves using their newfound skills from the course. Meanwhile the antagonist is making his next moves for his third attack and the likely victims are the protagonist and her friends. Ultimately, only the main protaganist escapes alive thus falling in line with the 'final girl' theme.

Erin Hardesty from Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a similar 'final girl'
