All - Coursework: "Acts of Repulsion"

Group: Ollie Preston and Richard Mclachlan
Film idea from: Ollie Preston
The idea for the name of the film came from researching different slasher film titles on internent movie data base (imdb) and mixing several titles together. The film idea comes from Hostel and Friday the 13th, the opening basically combines the two films together. The establishing shot is a medium high-angle shot of three friends having fun, drinking and smoking around a small bonfire. There is then a panning shot of them stood talking and drinking around the fire. When the group of friends realise that it’s becoming late they all decide to retire to their tents. The next shot is a medium shot of one of the three friends closing their eyes and trying to go to sleep. A light is seen shining outside, a muffled scream is heard then the shadow of a body being dragged past the tent which is seen by torch light. This alarms the two people still in their tents and they call out to each other; when they decide to go investigate they see a figure on the floor by the remaining glowing embers of the fire. The two friends walk over to the figure and realise it’s in fact a body. They crouch down and turn it over and discover it’s their friend. The next shot is a low angled shot looking up at the two friend’s reaction at finding the body. Both of them decide together they must go get help because the killer will probably still be around. They stand back up and turn around to see a large hooded figure standing menacingly with a large axe in his hands, which is dripping with blood. The screen goes black as the figure swings the axe towards them.
