Abstract

“In the summer of '84, two lovers discover that death waits for no one.” Having only 48 hours to create a film, as well as drawing “horror” as our genre, we realized that it would be fairly easy to fall into the category of overdone and cliché. It's very easy to fill the stereotype of how a film should be simply by mimicking what others have done before. Breaking this isn't something I believe is done very easily at a college level, let alone within a 48 hour time span. So we made it our goal from the very beginning to break this stereotype, and we did just that. Torch brings you into the world of the 80s: through character development, costumes and props, scene locations, and even the soundtrack. On top of all this, we break the format of classic 80s slasher films and create a suspenseful ride that leaves you wondering what exactly happens in the end. Created for the 48 Hour Film Slam, February 2013. (Editor’s Note: This presentation may contain adult themes, content, or imagery.)
