A SCREENPLAY – GENRE: HORROR -
STATUS: IN PROGRESS
I have some of this written. Actually, a lot of outlining done. I’ll post some notes soon and eventually more of the screenplay. I want to make this movie myself with a low budget and just have fun making a crappy horror movie and learning to do bad effects and stuff. Watching documentaries like ‘Horror Business’, ‘American Movie’, ‘Zombie Mania’, etc. All very inspiring.
Below is some of the characterization I’ve done. Probably not very interesting on its own, but it’s a big part of the story and helps to build the plot. The story is basically, two groups of kids go camping to celebrate graduating college, and they end up running into some aliens who have come to Earth to prank our backwoods planet. Besides the campground, a nearby drive-in movie theater and eventually the military stationed at a nearby base get involved and all hell breaks loose. The idea is to write a classic monster/go-away-to-camp horror movie, whatever that entails. It’s been weird as hell so far.
