During our planning stages and
writing our synopsis we had a brief
idea on what kind of actor we would
want to play the different roles of
We organised casting calls, just to
see who would be the definite fit for
our characters in terms of
appearance, acting ability and
availably. Our cast consisted of five
actors, each representing a certain
character that is generally seen in
Slasher films such as the final girl,
the promiscuous girl, the benefactor,
the jock (tends to be seen as the
false hero) and the villain, as we
wanted to follow the codes and
Unfortunately these actors did not get through to star in our trailer.
Here are the final actors that made up our cast.
girl)- Marina Cadete
hero) – Mohammed
Michael (The Villain)
Out of the other actors we picked ‘Jake’ to portray our killer. Since
he has a pale complexion and dark hair, we thought the contrast
gives him a mysterious look as an appearance. Our killer is suppose
to be an ordinary teenage boy who is mentally unstable, therefore
we casted teen additionally we needed an actor to be able to look
timid, almost weak just to show how much power ‘Michael’ (the
villain) gets when holding the knife. Our villain was very much
inspired by two Slasher films, ‘Scream’ and ‘Peeping Tom’. In scream
the villain is a teenager within the friendship group consequently
having a teen villain would cause discomfort to our target audience
as they themselves, are teens. Like peeping Tom our villain records
his murders as if it is his hobby. Michael has a enigmatic past, as he
moves to a new school after the death of his parents. He also finds
comfort in watching Slasher films, as it becomes a obsession
Michael tries to mimic the scenes from scream on his own victims.
Charlie (The final girl)
We picked ‘Crystal’ to play our final girl as her appearance fit the role of our character
as she displays minimal amount of make up and simple hairstyles to present her
innocence of the character and to also reinforce the fact that she is very virginal.
Although Crystal has platinum blonde hair we thought we could challenge the codes
and conventions since in most Slasher films its normally the blonde that dies first as
she represents the promiscuous girl. Because our film is modern, we wanted to
demonstrate it by altering the codes and conventions as we have the promiscuous girl
as a brunette (this is seen to be down in prom night, a modern Slasher film that came
out in 2008). The final girl has a uni-sex name as it follows the codes and conventions,
this presents her masculine features as well as feminine since we want both male and
females to confide in the character. She is not out going, which is presented through
what she wears since we’re going to assign our actor to wear a quite plain costume.
Charlie was the only character that was polite to the killer as she is an accepting
character however as a result Michael(the killer) demonstrated his unhealthy
obsession by stalking her. As the film goes on her sensibility and clever thinking is more
apparent as she ends up being the stand one standing.
Sophie (The promiscuous girl)
Marina was our choice for being the promiscuous girl as we
wanted a female who looked overtly feminine and bold. With
heavy makeup such as sharp eyeliner, strong coloured lips and
styled hair helped convey this. Also the nature of ‘Sophie’ is very
out going as she is a flirtatious character amongst boys, however
through the film she comes across as ditsy, which elucidates to the
audience how she is the opposing character to Crystal’s character,
the final girl. We made sure Marina’s character wore colours such
as red, black, as it connotes danger and death since she was the
first to die in our film.
Henry (The jock)
Mohammed was picked to play ‘Henry’ the jock, since the
jock needed to display his masculine features such as board
shoulders and stubble. In our film the Jock has the least
importance is the film( similar to the promiscuous girl). He is
seen to be the bravest and the most physically built which
why he is seen to attempt to fight back the killer though due
to the lack of his intelligence he falls to his death.
Teacher (The benefactor)
We casted Mr sharp as our benefactor as in usual Slasher films it
is often a much older and more wiser character. Since Mr Sharp
wears glasses we thought this would present his wisdom. The
benefactor in our film tries to aid the final girl and warn the
other teenagers after coming across an essay with a full
description of how Sophie was murdered. How Sophie was
murdered is confidential within the police force and forensic
science team, due Michaels essay sparks the recognition of who
the killer could be.
