The Sound of Screaming
[imgbelt img=FBLbanner2.jpg]A writer and director in works on his latest film, a movie he describes as a “Scooby-Doo episode with a really high body count.” Author Julianne Couch takes us behind the scenes and to the edge of "Firebox Lake".
Ragsdale describes his film as a “Scooby-Doo episode with a really high body count.” In the average action movie, hundreds of people die. But in horror movies, an average of only five people die, he says. “I want to up that. I kill ten people by page five. The opening scene is a slaughter-fest.”
It starts with a few people with a little too much curiosity. He’s trying to decide whether he wants an ending that suggests a sequel, or whether to “just kill everybody.” The former prospect would be satisfying and allow the killer to be caught. But the latter would be fun, too.
