Pick Your Big Bad
The Cliché: Take your pick; vampires, zombies, mutants, serial killers, revenge killers, thrill killers, cannibals, aliens, trans-dimensional undertakers are just some examples of the big bad. Pick one and run with it.
Appears In: Night of the Living Dead (1968)
How To Recreate It: Leave no stone unturned by including all your favourite movie monsters in your film. With zombies, vampires, werewolves, Nazis and bees, you can’t go wrong.
Go the extra mile by creating a big bad of your own. This can be accomplished with a quick trip to the local hardware store.
Glance around til you see an item not previously used as a tool of murder, say a belt sander.
Now make your way to a fancy dress shop, and make a bee-line for the masks. You’re looking for something catchy and iconic that isn’t already in use, say the Mick Hucknall rubber mask.
A belt-sander wielding Muck Hucknall? We’re scarred for life.
