Today, Ryan answers questions on suspense and how to win a Monday challenge.
The extraordinary Hollywood beauty Venetia Stevenson stars as the beautiful young innocent in the classic chiller City of the Dead. This exemplary horror film creates suspense and fright by constructing eerie and haunting images and atmospheres, as well as with tried and true devices: murder, secret evil, cults, witches, blood, and (of course) gore. With fine acting from veterans like Christopher Lee, City of the Dead attains magnificent degrees of mayhem and dark danger with a quality that few horror films can boast – it was a contemporary of Hitchcock’s Psycho and they are similar films. City of the Dead is top notch horror fare, and should be seen by all fans of the macabre.
Sleepless Nights is an experimental film I produced while on holiday to Wiltonburn Farm in the Scottish Borders. I've made three films here before; memories of Hawick and Alone which was made in 2008. The film is very experimental and I was going for a creepy type of atmosphere using various techniques such as using black and white and music to create suspense. It half worked I must say but I had fun making it.
