Who Would Be The Audience For Your
Our production would be given a BBFC rating of 15+ and the core age range for our target audience would be approximatley 15- 24 as is with most slasher films this is the target audience. As even if the film is an 18 rating it is certain that under 18's will watch the film. Also people older than 24 out of the target audience will watch the film too, but it would be uncommon for anyone older than 35 at least to be interested in a slasher movie.
Men are definatley the main audience of slashers, for men reason's such as the sexual themes and the gore.
Men love slashers because of the scream queens that can be just pure eye candy, with there busty physique and lack of clothing gives a reason to watch. We have included a Scream Queen in our production so this is one example of reaching out to our target audience.
For straight men the scream queens appeal to them as above ^ These may also appeal to lesbians aswell.
For straight women and gay men there is not much that is represented for them, an example that may appeal to straight women, and homosexual males in a scene in 'Roadside' is our male actor in the Dressing Gown, the dressing gown is low cropped and reveals alot of actor Ollies chest.
The final girl character would also appeal to lesbians as becuase it makes women look stronger rather than just bimbo's who are just going to be slain.
The final girl in a slasher film refers to the last woman or girl alive to confront the killer. A few examples of films where the final girl has appeared could be Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Halloween.
The final girl is typically sexually unavailablevirginal. Because our production is only the opening of a film we don't see if there is a 'final girl' at the end of our production. But we have set the opening up so it can easily lead to there being one.
The film would be aimed at more of a lower class audience looking for cheap thrills like the gore aand the sex scenes with not much to think about whereas it wouldnt as much appeal to a higher class audience who would be into more complex films.
