Pickup: A Horror Film with a One-word Script

April 17, 2008

One piece of advice for writers — and if it’s good enough for Little Women‘s Jo, it’s good enough for me — is to write about what you know. I wonder how such counsel might work for horror films? I have watched very little of that genre myself, but today I thought I had the makings of a good one. So I played around with e.g.’s camera, which is currently wearing the macro lens, and came up with this series of unretouched movie stills. What do you think, do I have the start of a decent portfolio?
