So after receiving our brief and the name of our movie. I have taken the time to look for any high school horrors that offer similarities to what our group are looking into producing. These are the top 10 high school horror trailers in my personal opinion.
10: The Faculty (1998) - Directed by Robert Rodriguez, this high school horror follows a group of students who believe that their teachers are aliens and that they are intent on making the students their victims. Starring Elijah Wood and Josh Hartnett.
9: Disturbing Behaviour (1998) (Dir. David Nutter)
8: Zombie High (1987) (Dir. Ron Link) - A teenage girl gains a scholarship to an all-male boarding school, but soon discovers that her fellow classmates are becoming personality-less drones. As she investigates the school, she discovers the faculty may be experimenting on students
7: Sorority Row (2009) (Dir. Stewart Hendler)
6: Urban Legend (1998) (Dir. Jamie Blanks)
5: Battle Royale (2000) (Dir. Kinji Fukasaku) - This isn't really your usual high school horror, the Japanese government captures a class of ninth-grade students and forces them to kill each other under the revolutionary "Battle Royale" act. So slightly a bit more farfetched, it still has a lot of relevance to our group project.
4: Prom Night (2008) (Nelson McCormick)
3: Return To Horror High (1987) (Bill Froehlich)
2: Tormented (2009) (Dir. Jon Wright) - A bullied teenager returns from the dead to kill all who drove him to suicide. I personally like this idea and hopefully we could use some of the ideas in our own project.
1: Scream (1996) ( Wes Craven) - One of the most significant horror films to date, Ghostface terrorizes a school and with the bodycount rising, one student and her friends find themselves contemplating the rules of horror films as they find themselves in a real horror film of their own. Not only will this film contribute towards our group work, but also for the study of postmodernism.
