I want to preface this blog by saying this isn't an attack on the legends of horror or in anyway meant to belittle the work the cast and crew, writers, directors, makeup FX artists etc have done to create the ICONS of the genre, this blog is just an observation of what I think needs to happen to the Slasher genre sooner rather then later.
I've been talking alot about foundation and evolution lately in blogs and videos and I have been relating it to Mortis and the Sins of Man franchise. Rise of Mortis was just that the character's rise and now with Vengeance we will show you the evolution of the character with more violence, blood, guts, gore and just a more brutal Mortis .
The Godfather's of the Slasher genre Leatherface, Michael, Jason and Freddy had run their course by 1988 and that's when Chucky came out and after that you had more Friday The 13th, ANOES and Child's Play films then in 1996 you had the genre saving debut of Ghostface .
With the arrival of the Zombie craze Slashers have taken a backseat to them along with Ghost movies. I ask you this... WHAT ARE SLASHER FANS SUPPOSED TO WATCH WITH ALL THESE ZOMBIE MOVIES ??
Granted I don't watch alot of current / recent horror movies because I prefer the "Classic" Slashers to be honest with you. but I know there comes a time when they need to be put to rest and the genre if it's going to survive needs new blood pumped into it, right?
That's where Wicked Carnival Productions comes in we want to make slashers great again and hopefully return them to the forefront of the genre.
If that sounds crazy then call me a wingnut, I'll wear that badge with honor because I'm passionate about bringing the Slasher back and that all starts with Sins of Man II : Vengeance.
Like I said Vengeance will have MORE Blood, MORE Gore, MORE Violence, and Mortis will becoming at his victims with BRUTAL VENGEANCE !! and that is what I think needs to happen in the genre. Along with a heightened amount of violence you need to have better characters, better stories and better plot points to drive the movie from beginning to end ....
My Plan To Make Slashers Great Again .....
BETTER SCRIPTS (Which means better stories)
CHARACTERS THAT YOU CARE ABOUT (even if you can't wait for them to die it shows you care)
ANTAGONISTS THAT SCARE YOU ( I want to you to be afraid to walk through a dark room, through the parking lot at night etc.)
BETTER KILLS ( I want you to watch our films and say "How did they do that" )
LIMIT THE NUMBER OF SEQUELS (I think this most important thing to do is to NOT over populate the genre with too many sequels UNLESS they continue the same continuity)
