Directed By Geoffrey Wright, this story is based in a small town where there is a killer on the loose who is on the hunt for teenage virgins.
Cherry Falls is also another film included in the teen slasher genre. The film makes the teen age range stand out in the film through the clothing, Jody Marken (Brittany Murphy) wear's a lot of goth like clothing through out the film, which teenagers can relate to quickly and it is made obvious that like any other American High School, 'clicks' or groups as we know them as are shown e.g. Populars, Geeks and also Goths. Our film won't have a dress code that makes the characters stand our as they will be in casual clothing, but the two girls tied up, will be wearing dresses from the previous night, also the age of
the characters in Cherry Falls are similar to the characters in our film.
A difference with the film we are about the produce and Cherry Falls is 'The Killer', we're not making our killer obvious just creepy like how you would stereotype the typical stalker to be, but in Cherry Falls, the further into the film you get the more obvious the killer becomes more clear. I think they did this in the film so that we wonder who it is through a variety of 'suspects' they give you to choose from, and then you can see whether your right or wrong at the end of the film.
"Innocence is deadly!"
"Clever premise, being a twist on the classic slasher convention of sex=death, pays off in this dark and splendidly suspenseful shocker."
