Our Project
Inspiration for our ‘Edward’ opening
title sequence project.
 
Genre of Horror
When first thinking of a film concept, we chose to adhere to the genre of psychological horror, as we felt as a group, that this particular genre would be a lotmore sinister, and we could choose a much more personal topic to create a horroraround.
“Films that explore psychological states and psychoses, including criminality and serial 
 
killers”.
Examples-
“Psycho”, “Peeping Tom” and The Hand That Rocks the Cradle”.
 
Inspiration
We gathered the inspiration for ‘Edward’ from many areas.
 
“Heavenly Creatures” (1994)
 
After watching the opening title sequencein class, my group decided to incorporate theidea of girls running through the forest,however used 3 girls, rather than the original2.
We felt that this would add a thrillerelement to the opening, and capture theaudience's attention.
“Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” (1886)
 
We suddenly came upon the idea of a splitpersonality disorder, which we thought wouldbe a good overall concept for a horror film.
This idea lead us to the novel
“Strange
Caseof Dr Jekyll and Mr
Hyde”,
by Robert LouisStevenson. We consequently incorporatedthis idea into the personality of ourprotagonist,
“Edward”
.
“Dexter” (2006)
 
This TV series presented us withthe needed inspiration for the titleof our horror opening. We likedhow this series was named after thekiller himself, and also felt it waseffective to have one single word.We therefore chose the slightlytraditional, yet mysterious name of 
‘Edward’
as it is not a typical,modern name.
