If we were able to create a whole film from our idea, this would be the plot:
Liz is on the run. A year ago, her boyfriend had an affair and the woman he was with fell pregnant. Jealousy and anger rose in Liz and between them, they decided she was better gone forever so she couldn’t ruin their relationship any further. Six months later he tries to leave Liz and after an argument she wakes up in the middle of a deserted woodland with him lying next to her but he is dead. She flees the scene and has been missing ever since. But, she cannot understand how she could have killed the man she loved. So she sets out to find what happened, whilst still trying to evade the police. And why can’t she remember?
‘Lethal Romance’ is a thriller film because it fulfils the criteria of the thriller genre. It involves a twisted love story plot, murder, violence, escaping justice and an antagonist and protagonist. Conventions of other thriller films that are contained in ‘Lethal Romance’ are investigations (whodunit), and the main focus being on the criminal rather than the police or the people chasing them.
We have chosen the rating of 12a for our film. This is because we feel our story would appeal to teenagers which is a huge market in the film industry, therefore if this was a real film; a lot of money could be made.
After research on the BBFC website, our film links to the 12a category, for example:
Dangerous Behaviour should not be dwelled on.
Easily accessible weapons should not be glamorised.
No emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments are permitted.
Inspirations for our Mystery/Crime thriller are films such as:
Some of our forest scenes were inspired by the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre films and Evil Dead 2.
