Yes, yes, it’s all fun and games until you realize that your “friend” is actually looking for inspiration from horror movies and serial killer documentaries. By that, we mean your friend is an aspiring scary movie director who has no idea what sort of characters to develop.
Perhaps we can help you, friend. Don’t have a white family purchase a house and get slaughtered. Make them Asian! Instead of the blonde girl tripping over tree roots and getting her leg stuck in a bear trap, make it a midget! You know, add a twist to your films that the audience would never expect.
