Researching similar films

  1. 1. Similar Films - Research Task The film Jaws, which was based on the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916, was released in 1975 and was rated PG. It is similar to our film brief because it too is supposed to be scary and also appeal to the younger and family audience. Although the plot behind jaws is very different to ours it is good for research purposes because it allows us to see the types of films that have been produced with a similar target audience and also the same ‘horror’ theme attached to its name. Salem’s Lot is another film that was rated a PG as well as being a horror movie. The film is an adaption of Stephen King’s novel and was released in 1979. It contains little gore but many jumpy and scary moments throughout. It is about a man who returns to his home town to finish the book he is writing and finds that the residents are being turned into vampires. Another good film to study for our research as it has a similar audience and similar film brief. When the film Poltergeist was released in 1982 with the PG rating many people were shocked because some of the scenes were quite terrifying. The film is a supernatural horror, the plot focuses on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family's youngest daughter. This film again has the same audience as our target audience and is probably has the most similar plot to our main task too. The idea of being haunted by something is key in our plot. In our sequence we plan for a girl to be haunted by someone following her but from her imagination because she is going insane. Poltergeist is a good film to look at when researching similar films because of the many similarities it carries to our brief.
