Wait wait! There will be more submissions.... Horror movie sights have picked up your contest, comeRead More on folk, name 5 of your best horror movies.... I should have put FREAKS as one of my favorites, too, like Mikki did, but I think of that not as a horror film, but more of a family movie.

Does anyone proofread this stuff?

They are suppose to be. I type it on the fly on my Ipad so my grammer and Spelling isn't very goodRead More at all! IPads tend to auto correct things and aren't as easy to type on as one would think. I am currently in pre-production for two films so I don't have as much time as I would like to have in order to fixup and correct my "Word vomit"

I love a good foreign film, but I hate foreign film trailers. Why is it that trailers for foreignRead More films show as little dialog as possible? Instead, they show a series of reaction shots or wide shots of lovely scenery that really don't contribute to a possibly intriguing story. Do the advertisers really think that if they showed scenes with a few lines of foreign dialog (with subtitles, of course) that viewers would say "Well, I might have gone to see that film, but they're not speaking English?" Perhaps if they're blind or illiterate, but otherwise it almost seems as if the trailers are trying to trick us into going, only to get 30 seconds into the film and say "What the heck kind of language is that? Well, I paid my 12 bucks. I might as well stay." Really... foreign film moviegoers are a little smarter than that. If I don't mind reading subtitles for two hours, I certainly don't mind doing it for three minutes. Good luck on that script, James.

The thing is they are trying to appeal to a wider audience. Alot of the time standard AMERICANS willRead More see subtitles and immediently loose interest. So believe it or not they are thinking the audience wont want to see the movie because they aren't speaking English in the trailer. It is sad but true. I do agree that people shouldn't be tricked into it, but I understand why companies advertise that way. Hopefully that style of advertisement will force people to give the films a chance!
