The film is being shot documentary style(think quarantine) and takes place at a summer camp.

Make him repeat the line 'Why so Serious?' every 30 secs.
Do it for the lulz.

Well women serial killers are usually kind of weird and nervous or act perfectly normal from what I've gathered, but you can make them however you want. Tis your film after all. Break the mould
#10
Since it's a she, won't all of the film be set in the kitchen?

Lulz

Read:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antisocial_personality_disorder
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychopathy

Those will be pretty helpful to make the killer a real character. I only include the latter because APD doesn't have much to say about empathy.

The women wont have much of a speaking part.

The basic story is that a Girl and her friend(the guy who will hold the camera and film(probably me)) arrives at a summer camp late at night and cant find anyone. While searching she runs into one of the creatures (probably the zombie) she will then run all over camp while being chased by dufferent monsters she keeps running into.
-Spoiler-
For the ending she will wake up in her cabin realize it was a bad dream and get up to wash her face with cold water. After washing her face she will look up to see none other than the serial killer staring at her from the mirror(iinstead of her reflection) the mirror cracks, creepy music plays and the credits roll

To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

No. Just no.


Also, the plot doesn't even make sense. What has the serial killer got anythign to do with it?

Zombie? Creatures? I thought this was about a serial killer? How many movies ARE you making TS?
#18
For your dignity's sake...I sincerely do not think you should go through with making this film.
#19
Its not supposed to make sense, its for fun, well really cuase we live at a summer camp and are bored out of our minds.
#20
Movies that were really dreams suck ass, it's like you just sat through two hours of nothing.
#21
also the movie is supposed to be a piece of crap. Its supposed to be one of the worst horror films ever.

Then why would you want to make a realistic and scary serial killer?

So your ending is a mix of super mario 2's ending and nightmare on elm street's ending?

If you want to make the worst horror movie, than go with that.
#29
How about the twist is you have several different loose ends in the plot that never get resolved?
#30
Quote by freakforjesus
thx but seriously if you have better bad ending that would be great

Have the screen go black in the middle of the movie and end it.
#31
I dont like the screen going out in the middle of the film(its only gonna be like 5-10 min. long) and we already have loosed ends in the plot mainly becuase we dont have much of a plot. We created characters for the film and that was about how far we got... we arent very productive and when put in a room together we all suffer from severe ADD

Google "Javed Iqbal" and I'm pretty sure you'll have a good idea of why serial killers are scary.

A baseball bat is rather boring. Also, I think you should keep the method of killing a secret until the end, and make it something shocking.

Don't just have people being killed on camera that makes a lame movie.

I would make the killer seem as normal as possible, because there is no way you can make it "disturbing" with a low budget, plus that's not interesting anymore.

A machete and a hockey mask


and make him silly walk.


base your killer on John Robinson, Ted Bundy and John Wayne Gacy.

you got a BDSM-loving, women-hating, VW Beetle-driving, child/women-raping/eating Russian clown.
