This guide has been compiled for all
you sicko's out there, of which we ourselves are not exempt, who thrive on the
element of horror. (In other words, the concept of people getting
systematically gored, mutilated, mangled, bludgeoned, and so on...)
The production of such films has been developed to an art in that there is
an obvious unwritten guideline that most follow. This file changes that so that
U2 (you too) and any other fool off the street could design his or her own (for
you libbers out there) 'mangle 'em up movie'. So, when you have made your first
million, remember who you have to thank for it. We would welcome any
profit-sharing that your conscience leads you to.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLE OF THESE MOVIES:
In the production of horror movies, one must consider QUANTITY. QUALITY is
of little (if any) importance. These 'Grind 'em into the ground' films have
become immensely popular and will continue to be so for one main reason; this
being that the vast majority of 'us' are demented. 'We' are quite willing to
shell out 5 bucks at the theatre on a regular basis in order to watch our
favorite MURDERER/ MONSTER/FIEND/SICKO/FREAK/DEMON rip apart our least favorite
VICTIM(S)/ LOSER(S)/GOODY-GOOD(IES)/KNOB(S). Perhaps this is a comment on the
stability and state of today's rapidly degenerating society... Fuck that!!!
Anyways, it should now be apparent to even the simplest of simpletons that
'wholesome hacking' films are SOUND profit-makers.
Entrepreneur (you) with an unstable
1 day to spare. This figure, although quite high, accounts for time used
for script-writing (rough draft = final),
No-name (low-cost) actors (relatives, for instance). * All measures must
be taken to prevent the unnecessary loss of profits, all filming, and
The name MUST get straight to the point and be simple enough for the
audience to understand. 'Autumn Asphyxiation', for example, would not be
acceptable (no one would know what autumn means!)
Suitable examples: KILL!, KILLED!, KILLER!, KILL 'EM ALL! DIE!, ALL DIE!,
YER DEAD!, DEATH! SPLATTER, SPLITCH, SQUELCH! CHOP, CHOP, CHOP! BLADE!, AXE!
OR, u can try the "MASSACRE" approach: DRIVE-IN MASSACRE, MICROWAVE
MASSACRE, TEXAS CHAIN-SAW MASSACRE, SLUMBER- PARTY MASSACRE, ESPANOLA MASSACRE,
THE RESERVE TOMAHAWK, MASSACRE, etc.
Once you have a winner, DON'T STOP!! Release SEQUELS with subtitles!!!
AXE II: The Blade Gets Sharper!
AXE III: 3-D!
AXE IV: Pain!
AXE V: More Pain!
AXE VI: Return of the Axeman!
AXE VII: The End!!!
AXE VIII: We Lied.
Team-ups are always popular and so you get:
AXE IX: Axeman vs. Jason vs. Freddy
Don't stop here...
These films gain a great deal of popularity because of their association
with HEAVY METAL and SEX!! Could that be another indicator of society's imminent
collapse?? Always hire THRASH METAL groups to sing your theme songs and perform
sound effects (sometimes it is hard to tell which is the theme song and which
are the sound effects!)
SOUND FX (poor Billy's death cries as performed by 'Diehard'): UG!
AAACKKKK! AWWWK! FUCKKK! ERK!
THEME SONG (also by 'Diehard'): UG! AAACKKKK! AWWWK! FUCKKK! ERK!
Hire no-name Thrash groups (people will like them and buy their albums)
because it is cheaper this way. Do not pay millions to Ozzy and the boys to be
in your movie... hire 'The Granny-fuckers', 'Bash Heads', 'Inverted Cross',
'L.S.D.', 'Nic Fit', and so on. You can find any of these groups on local
street corners, malls, arcades, record stores where it is easy to steal from.
If all else fails, simply shout, "DRUGS!" and you are guaranteed to attract
The lyrics of your theme song are of no importance. Tape yourself while
you are gargling if you can't think of anything else. This is what will happen
when the group records it:
LYRICS: You are gonna fucking die you fucking faggot! Fucking take your fucking
head and smear it on the fucking wall! Yer gonna be fucked up real fucking bad!
Don't fuck with us! Don't take no fucking shit! Fuck that!
CHORUS: Fucking right! Fucking hell! Fucking Yaaa! Satan! Satan! Satan! AXE!
Fucking right! [Repeat] [Repeat] [Repeat]
GUITAR SOLO followed by smashing of guitar over head of person in audience
CROWD: AXE! AXE! ALRIGHT! AXE! AXE!
BUT... all of the above will come out as:
YJG-JH-BjKIGGBbbaFKl-J-JJJsKkjKJAA... * Note that this is difficult to
Sex, as mentioned previously, plays a major part in these movies. Be
ORIGINAL, though. Try new, never-before-tried-things! Trust me... the sickos
out there will love you for it! The villain usually has one thing on his/its
mind: KILL! It is usually the victims who indulge in sexual acts during their
short life-times on screen. Do not be stingey on actresses like you are with
your actors, though. Do not use your sisters/mother/aunts/nieces in your movie
because they are probably as ugly as sin. Use BABES only! Test them out
yourself, first, to make sure they are up to par.
The name of your feature-film may be greatly influenced by SEX. Use names
like 'Deadly Dildos', 'Babes Get Blasted', 'Bludgeon The Bitch', 'Slut
Slaughter', and 'Painful Pussies'.
* Note: Name such as these will draw
crowds with low mentalities.
People with low mentalities
are the majority, so this is
* Note 2: The name does not have to
relate to the film in any
way. (If you have a real
loser film about a girl
and her pony, call it
'Ultimate Orgy Gets The
Axe VII!' and it will be
Now, special effects is a department which, in modern times, has become
extremely advanced. Unfortunately, it is also very expensive. You can avoid
this expense by using REAL, authentic props (corpses, skulls, blood, etc.) If
you really want to splurge and use imitations, keep in mind Heinz (why settle
for second best, eh?)
You might decide to film stunts at night. This is actually a cop-out
because people can't see what is happening and it leaves much up to
their gruesome imaginations. If you ran out of time writing the script (i.e. it
took longer than 1 day), this is a good idea... Just film the next scenes at
night and do absolutely nothing. Like FX, stunts are cheaper if they are REAL.
Do you have any idea how expensive it is to do a mock death scene of a guy
getting his eyeballs forced thru the back of his head??? And messy too! It is
much more convenient and realistic to do it for real. After all, it isn't nice
to trick the audience with fake killings... yes, many of them are so out of it
that they can't separate movies from reality. You can call these useful
killings of actors "on-location accidents"... these things happen... tsk, tsk.
So that actors aren't wasted, try out the stunts on your friends first.
Lastly, when planning your film, THEME, PLOT, and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT are
of absolutely no concern and should be avoided at all times. These things tend
to confuse the audience and should be restricted to English class.
NOW! THE PART YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR:
THE OFFICIAL STEP-BY-STEP
DOCUMENTATION TO THIS ART
THE PLOT (heaven forbid):
1) Something happens to royally piss-
off the murderer-to-be. If he is a
wimp he may get stomped on; if he
is not a he but a she, she may get
raped. If it is a creature or
Freddy-type, no agitation is
required. They kill because it is
2) If the killer is mortal it often
gains some form of power until there
are but a few left.
5) Usually, there is a good fuck scene
where two get gored for the price
6) The final individual (sometimes
more than one, but not often)
always lasts longer than the rest.
The killer seems to grow somehow
more useless and cannot eliminate
her <- note, not him.
7) The chick gets some sort of weapon
(there are always tons of these
lying around in places like play-
grounds, schools, etc.) and tries
to fight back. Being a useless
girl, she fumbles it and loses it.
The killer picks it up.
8) In her retreat, the chick runs into
the bodies of all her pals. Its
amazing how they all seem to fall
from above and pop up here and
there, especially since she never
noticed anything before.
9) While running with the mangler in
pursuit, what does every bitch do?
That's right, she FALLS. Sometimes
she will get up only to fall again.
It becomes something of a Spiderman
or Hercules cartoon affair. You
know, how the creature is always
just behind no matter how many
times the person falls. During
the actual pursuit, only the
killer's boots can be seen (unless
its a sequel and we have seen the
10) Not to forget the constant
whimpering of the victim. The
final victim usually resorts to
talking to herself a great deal.
She will say, "Oh no! Here he
comes!! Help me!" Strange. There
is no one else around. Who is she
11) There is always a point when the
victim tries to plead and bargain
with her assailant. "Who are
you?" "What do you want??" (Its
kind of obvious what he wants)
"Please don't hurt me!" "Here,
take all of my money and credit
12) Oh shit! We forgot to mention the
shower scene. Not to worry, film
producers forget these things all
the time and tack them in anywhere!
Yes, this is a must. Sometimes blood
even comes out of the shower itself.
13) If the victim is still trapped in
a house, the power should go about
14) She will look through every window
and guess who will be there? Guess
who will also be behind every corner
in every room. (Killers can change
locations very fast, but they chase
15) The wench escapes from the
building (not that it's exactly
hard to leave a house or anything)
and is chased again across an
open courtyard... she falls.
16) A struggle results in which the
killer's mask is ripped off! The
prep (mostly all chicks in these
movies are awesome-looking preps)
is paralyzed with fear but still
doesn't get axed.
17) Something happens (varies) and the
killer gets killed! Wrong. He is
really alive and gets up again,
and again, and again, and again.
(This is especially true of human
killers with absolutely no special
powers). Meanwhile, the chick
will stand there and watch him get
up and come for her.
18) Alas, the chick escapes against
all odds and the killer lies dead.
* Note: The stupid bitch never
keeps hammering him like she
should. (She stands and looks at
the body instead with a dazed
expression on her face).
19) A happy ending right? Wrong!
Just before the credits appear
and 'Diehard' commences with the
theme song 'Fuck Hell', the
killer's finger twitches; his eyes
open; or he smiles.
20) You have reached the end, right?
Wrong! There will, of course,
be a sequel. Be on the look out
for all accompanying paraphernalia.
