EX: Zombie / KidNap / CrossWalk

Horror spoof.

Couple driving along after a party. Perfect rainy night, twisted road horror scenerio. They crash, she dies. Comes back as a zombie. Chases him through the woods. Girlfriend violence porn.

We could go over the top and do it Versus (Ryuhei Kitamura) and Evil Dead 2, insane camera angles and wrestling like violence.

But something about the straight forward horror is cool. Just have to find an angle so it's not just a guy smashing his undead ex.


Voyeur still camera on a couple on a date. Drinks, dinner, walking home, a kiss, he walks off with a spring in his step.

Three guys in ski-masks throw a hood over his head, throw him in a van. All POV camera.

Tied to a chair, hood whipped off, hot bulb in a damp basement. Three guys, all his friends, beating him out of his senses, as he told them to do if he ever said he was in love again.



Slow-mo music video, low rez camera, melodic to jazzy to metal transition.

Guy walking towards us, crosses the street, spies his ex walking towards him, holding hand with another guy. Close up and speeding up camera shots, her face, his face, their hands, up her body, her face, her eyes. She doesn't even make eye contact. He's smiling, smug, sunglasses hipster punk fuck. They pass in slo-motion, he might just do something, say something, but he stops himself and keeps walking.

He comes in close to the camera on the other side of the street. Over his shoulder in the background, they walk off and away. He looks off a moment, the music shifts, he whips his glasses off, turns and charges at them.

Far shot down the block. We see the guy running right side of the screen to left, real time, far off, comical.

POV as he comes up on the dude, his fist cocked. The guy turns and throws his fist at him.

Worm's eye view, our guys spits blood towards the camera on the ground as his head whips towards us, the other douche following through with his punch. She looks on without any pity. Shake of the head. Slight frown.

They walk off. His arm around her. She barely looks back. Same shot, just as they disappear, the guy picks his head up, blood streaming from his nose. He turns around to look at them. Over his shoulder we watch as she pushes herself away, the guy's arm falling to his side.

Close up of our guy bleeding and smiling.

I'm thinking we can shoot those as shorts and then fill in the other scenes when we get funding and make it like one long night of seeing his ex's across the city, talking with friends and getting their ex stories.

I really feel like this could be a project that'd find funding easy and be viral.

Def check out Four Eyed Monsters.
