Looks like I've got about 2.5 weeks left of pre-writing and research if I want to write the first draft of this in June. I still need more developed character sketches, I need to rewrite all my Dramatica pre-writing materials, I need a storyform, I need a scene by scene outline, and I need to watch some MOVIES!
Here's a preliminary list. During the screenwriting I'm sure I'll absorb more, but for now I want to pick 10... HELP! I am not quite sure what genre my take on this story is going to fit within. To me it seems like it's psychological horror and gothic romance--should I be watching vampire movies?!
Silence of the Lambs
The Seventh Seal
Serpent and the Rainbow
Hitchock films: Rope, Rear Window, The Trouble with Harry, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Vertigo, Psycho, The Birds, Marnie, Torn Curtain, Topaz, Frenzy, Family Plot
