Topic: House of Pain Feature script
I really respect your opinions here on this board so I wanted to ask for some help.
I'm currently writing the full length version of HOP and I'm a little stuck between whether to write it with a good back story that leads into the house, or just start with the house and right into the action.
Personally, I'm in favor of starting from the beginning and building the story. There is enough material to write a part 2 and make that the gorier part. I just feel like there is a lot of good story to be told if I start from the beginning.
My only fear is that horror fans won't want to watch the story unfold and just want to see instant gore. We've been a little spoiled lately with gorey horror films that don't build the story too much.
What are you thoughts on this?
