Horror Movie Casting
« on: March 20, 2023, 11:12:05 PM »
Hello there, long time no post. Recently I've been brain-storming and working on some ideas for a fairly large rape/snuff filled horror movie type story to write. I've got 5 or 6 pretty developed concepts; anything from a typically slasher-killer setup up, to sci-fi horror, to even a more lovecraftian approach. I really want to use actual celebrities for the "cast" for my story but I need a little bit of help settling in on the cast. If anyone is interested in helping out please either respond to this post or dm me. We can chat about some of my ideas and then hopefully you can help me settle in my cast for one or two of these concepts. Hope to hear from some of y'all soon, cheers!

It would definitely play out from a 3rd person perspective, as almost more of a screenplay/expansive setup. Definitely a fair bit of setup and story along with the rape and snuff. I could DM you some more specific details if you're interested.

I love this! There are definitely some horror archetypes that can help give victim ideas. I've always wanted to read/watch a horror movie which is structured like a Slasher but is primarily about a serial rapist. Instead of (or additionally to) killing the victims, he wins by raping his way through them all :D.

A sleepover, or summer camp, or girls party, are all ways that previous horror movies have gotten a group of girls together. The girls are usually supposed to be teenagers, so you probably want 18-25 year old actresses. There's also a few archetypes they can fill, so here's a bunch of (hot) girls I think would work who you could make use of :).

Popular Girl: Dove Cameron, Livvy Dunne,
Slut: Madisyn Shipman, Breckie Hill
Girl Next Door: Francesca Capaldi, Jayden Bartels
Warrior: Millie Bobby Brown, Peyton List
Virgin/Final Girl: Jenna Ortega, Jenna Davis

That's a nice idea.

Liking the lineup so far.

If doing this as a screenplay, I'd recommend either getting a template that auto formats for you, or getting your hands on a dedicated screenplay app.  I switched over to Final Draft a couple years back, but that was also my birthday present to me.  When it comes to posting here, make sure to double and triple check your formatting.  There will be a lot of markups to make a screenplay fit this format.  If you have any questions about screenplay stuff, hit me up.

Coming at it from a slightly different casting angle, below is a list of actresses I'd be happy to see do a 'Drew Barrymore ~ Scream opening scene. i.e. cannon fodder to establish the stakes and real peril for the sexier heroines in peril.

Riverdale >>  Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Madelaine Petsch, Vanessa Morgan & Ashleigh Murray.

The 100 >> Eliza Taylor, Marie Avgeropulos,Lindsey Morgan, Alycia Debnham Carey, Eve Harlow & Tasya Teles

For the hot mom cougar (or older sister) cameo in whose shadow the quieter, bookish teenage heroine (think the 'real' Velma) has been raised. Ripe for a prolonged and gratuitous Psycho shower scene homage.

Catherine Bell, Morena Baccarin, Christina Hendricks, Holland Roden, Emma Stone, Jessica Alba, Eliza Dushku
