Quoted from Female Gaze
define monster?


Frankenstein, Werewolfs, Vampires... Hell, monster is a broad term. I'd consider Jeepers Creepers a monster movie. As long as your script has a monster in it, you're golden.

So we don't  each get allocated a sub genre from the list? And there s no criteria either? Will skip this, Zach. Sorry to waste your time!

Yes, I'd consider an alien to be a monster.

This might seem dumb but do you consider ghosts, Mr Hyde, Godzilla, psychological aspects like the ID(think Forbidden Planet), and robots?

I have  my idea, just making sure for my peeps.
Thanks again for doing this, Zach

Dan

It's not a dumb question. But it may get a dumb answer.

Ghosts, no. Ms Hyde and Godzilla, yes. Robots would be science -fiction horror. I don't know what the ID are, sorry.

oh, i see. for some reason i thought we were going to be allocated individual genres - not sure why i though that.

monster or canibal

not my thing but i won't rule it out for now.

the way I'm going to approach this is to consider this an entry for the script shadow competition. it's unlikely to get there but thats the target.

for that i will need it to be focused, low budget, and ideally something unique with a strong theme - easy peasy!!

not promising an entry but will give it some thought

That's not a good draw at all, and my fears for this challenge are now realized.

"Monster" is too generic, as peeps are already asking redonkulous questions about if this or that is a monster.

"Cannibal" is the opposite of monster, in that it's too specific, and every single script will revolve around the same plot points, maybe even setting.

ARGH!!!!


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

As always, the ideal is to try an tease out a unique story.

A fresh twist on an old idea.


Tough, but doable.
