@teenierussell: So, who's watched Oldboy? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:03 pm           



 
@GoIntoTheStory: By my count, "Self/Less" is the 101st spec script sale of 2011. Sales are up 94% compared to last year. #screenwriting #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:04 pm           



 
@Bang2write: A good thriller makes it look easy... The spec pile shows this is a REALLY hard genre to pull off #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:04 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: #scriptchat Evening all! I watched Oldboy for the first time this afternoon. It's...um...well, you don't see ones like that everyday!

December 4, 2011, 8:05 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @SiFoulaReel true, I watched it last night again but not as convinced as the 1st time #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:06 pm           



 
@Perczynski: #scriptchat I haven't seen it, but with pleasure will discuss how you write a good thriller.

December 4, 2011, 8:06 pm           



 
@HateTheHate: #scriptchat A thriller is a sit-hor (situation horror)? :)
December 4, 2011, 8:06 pm           



 
@antonsays: @teenierussell me. loved it. edgy, thrilling, surprising, shocking. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:06 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @teenierussell I was interested all the way through, but wasn't totally convinced by it. The end is audacious in many ways... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:07 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @SiFoulaReel :-) its certainly an original #scriptchat this was pretty much THEfilm that brought attention to the Koreanindustry #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:07 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @teenierussell Me. Hundreds of times. Well, several maybe. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:08 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @teenierussell but it's quite old-fashioned - and I mean 30s/40s - under scrutiny. Evil hypnosis? That's convenient! #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:08 pm           



 
@Perczynski: #scriptchat So what differs thriller to good action movie? @TaroJ @teenierussell
December 4, 2011, 8:09 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat I lived the idea of a revenge movie but finding out Why? Is as important as revenge. The opening 20 minutes covering 15 years
December 4, 2011, 8:09 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @TaroJ Dragged me along right with it. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:09 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @SiFoulaReel Did you know it was based on a Manga? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:10 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski Thriller to me is different to action on many different levels. In an action, you generally know from the go... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:10 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski who the antagonist is #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:11 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat it's a real roller coaster for the character Daesu especially as he comes across as a bit of a bum in the opening
December 4, 2011, 8:11 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Will_Scothern I didn't. I don't think the credits said so, only story and written by credits. Might have missed it. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:12 pm           



 
@Bang2write: #scriptchat spec thrillers frequently concentrate too much on character + turn into dramas - difficult balancing act in this genre
December 4, 2011, 8:12 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat we keep seem to come back to character wher talking about writing but it's so true for a Thriller.
December 4, 2011, 8:12 pm           



 
@Perczynski: #scriptchat Many say that "Panic Room" was a real thriller, but I found it rather like action movie located in one place. @teenierussell
December 4, 2011, 8:13 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: What's really makes a difference with Oldboy is the Music. One of the best scores I've heard. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:13 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @antonsays definitely shocking and you feel for the antagonist in the end. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:13 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat they need to be a fish out of water that adapts to what is thrown at them
December 4, 2011, 8:13 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Will_Scothern it's a great soundtrack and sitting on my laptop right now #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:14 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @SiFoulaReel I was just confused as to why in the end he would be hypnotised to forget who she really was and carry on as normal #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:14 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @SiFoulaReel I think that explains a lot of the audacious style choices present in the film, from mise-en-scene to story. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:14 pm           



 
@kanundra: @Bang2write How do you get to #scriptchat new computer. I lost it all. :(
December 4, 2011, 8:15 pm           



 
@Perczynski: #scriptchat Ok, so you don't know the antagonist, you put attention to characters not action, what more? @teenierussell @TaroJ
December 4, 2011, 8:15 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @teenierussell @sifoulareel is that what everyone got from the ending? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:15 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @teenierussell Right. It's open to a lot of interpretation, but none particularly healthy. I admired the film rather than liked. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:16 pm           



 
@HateTheHate: #scriptchat Thrillers remove the protagonist from their comfort zone, they place heightened stressors on them to provoke an xtreme response.
December 4, 2011, 8:17 pm           



 
@Bang2write: @kanundra not sure what you mean... just use the #scriptchat label - click on it?
December 4, 2011, 8:17 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @TaroJ @teenierussell I wasn't sure what I got. Initially thought he may have sent the woman to Mido too offscreen. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:17 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Will_Scothern interesting, I don't remember the music at all. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:17 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @kanundra you can also use http://t.co/Cjn4j553 and sign is w/ your twitter account #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:18 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Perczynski @teenierussell I don't know if those are hard and fast rules North by Northwest had stunning action #scriptchat but also suspens
December 4, 2011, 8:18 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Will_Scothern Yes, I can see the time shifts and visual choices working well in that form. They did work in the film too. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:18 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @HateTheHate #scriptchat That explains most of things. Can u give the best example of classical thriller?
December 4, 2011, 8:19 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: One of the few films I've shown to people who weren't that interested in watching but had on edge of their seat by the end. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:19 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat so do we have any Thriller writers out there? Great to hear your thoughts
December 4, 2011, 8:20 pm           



 
@rjlackie: RT @ScreenwritingMC: By my count, "Self/Less" is the 101st spec script sale of 2011. Sales are up 94% compared to last year. #screenwriting #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:20 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski @taroj The character is usually thrown into the 'trap' rather than seeking it out #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:21 pm           



 
@antonsays: what are peoples thoughts on the US doing a remake? I thought it was so powerful because of the culture #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:21 pm           



 
@janetvaneeden: Sorry I have to RT this! @magdaolchawska U have written one of the most amazing scripts I've ever read See http://t.co/XyNvskKn #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:22 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @teenierussell @perczynski I now have Elvis Suspicious Minds going through my head #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:22 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @TaroJ The feature I'm halfway through making is a murder mystery. Mostly sedate dialogue as I had no budget though! #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:22 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski @taroj protagonist is usually not a hero, an average Joe - always exceptions though #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:23 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @antonsays Noooooooooooooooooooo #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:23 pm           



 
@HateTheHate: @Perczynski Enemy of the State springs to mind as an chase-thriller, Oldboy is verging on horror IMO. :) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:23 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @teenierussell @taroj #scriptchat Ok. That is another clue, but as you see is hard to recognize it nowadays.
December 4, 2011, 8:23 pm           



 
@antonsays: @TaroJ it was going to star Will Smith but Spike Lee has it now #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:23 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @antonsays Not surprised, you never know how it'll turn out. They did do a good job with The Departed (Infernal Affairs) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:24 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @antonsays Can't see it flying. I'm not opposed to remakes blindly, but this one is unique and should stay that way. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:24 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @antonsays My hopes aren't high. First Spielberg, then Lee? Holy cow are both of them wrong for the job. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:24 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @TaroJ @antonsays yet again why bother distributing a film with subtitles when you can remake it #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:24 pm           



 
@LewSwift: RT @Bang2write: #scriptchat spec thrillers frequently concentrate too much on character + turn into dramas - difficult balancing act in this genre
December 4, 2011, 8:25 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski @taroj Definitely, too many films are mixed genre nowadays, makes it harder to define #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:25 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @antonsays sorry I'm just off to bang my head against the wall #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:25 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @teenierussell @Perczynski @taroj Bourne Trilogy? Great action, but I kinda see them as Thrillers... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:25 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @HateTheHate #scriptchat Eagle Eye is another chasing good one right?
December 4, 2011, 8:26 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski @taroj It makes it harder for writers to sell specs when it's not clear what the genre is. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:26 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Will_Scothern @teenierussell @Perczynski @taroj I would call them action thrillers. Thrillers can be hybrid with lots... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:26 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Will_Scothern @teenierussell @Perczynski @taroj of other types, so it can be hard to define a "pure" thriller. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:27 pm           



 
@ambigfoot: I bet @jeannevb has made a few oldboys very happy in her time :) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:27 pm           



 
@jeannevb: @ambigfoot haha you just can't resist ;) #scriptchat

@Perczynski: @Will_Scothern @teenierussell @taroj #scriptchat The Fugitive?
December 4, 2011, 8:29 pm           



 
@teenierussell: So what would you all say are the main elements of a good thriller? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:29 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @SiFoulaReel Even people sitting around talking can have you on the edge if your seat eg 12 Angry Men #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:29 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @SiFoulaReel @teenierussell @Perczynski @taroj Fair point, I can see that. How about Collateral? Mix as well? #scriptchat

December 4, 2011, 8:32 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @TaroJ Love that film so much & yes, totally gripping. Mine's kind of a whodunnit with some supernatural elements & love story. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:32 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @Will_Scothern @teenierussell @taroj #scriptchat I ask cause in Poland we have problems with this kind of films - not produced
December 4, 2011, 8:34 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Will_Scothern @Perczynski @taroj me too, Bourne Trilogy to me is (or has) thriller elements due to its suspense nature #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:34 pm           



 
@craigbergonzoni: @jeannevb OLDBOY is tonight's #scriptchat subject? Sweet!!! FYI, It's on Netflix streaming but with an English overdub, booo!!!
December 4, 2011, 8:35 pm           



 
@TaroJ: #scriptchat another film I saw recently that reminded me a lot of Oldboy was Memento, another revenge thriller.
December 4, 2011, 8:35 pm

@SiFoulaReel: @Will_Scothern @teenierussell @Perczynski @taroj I would put Collateral as a thriller more than anything else, yes. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:37 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @craigbergonzoni Overdub? That is horrific. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:37 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @TaroJ #scriptchat Memento? Never thought of it as a thriller maybe becouse of it original backward-structure
December 4, 2011, 8:37 pm

December 4, 2011, 8:37 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Perczynski @will_scothern that's surprising the Thriller seems popular at the box office, what genres are popular in Poland #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:38 pm           



 
@janetvaneeden: #scriptchat Plse support my film based on the true story of my brother. He took his life rather than fight unjust war http://t.co/XyNvskKn

@Perczynski: #scriptchat. Ok so it seems that nowadays the genres are mixed and pure thrillers are rare.?
December 4, 2011, 8:40 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski I think you need to find what the main elements in it are, the driving force, many times a genre will stand out #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:42 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Perczynski I think lots of genres have crossover not just thrillers #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:42 pm           



 
@teenierussell: What's everyone's favourite thriller? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:43 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @teenierussell Can't go wrong with Hitchcock, Vertigo for me, or North by Northwest #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:44 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @teenierussell @TaroJ #scriptchat If "Inception" or "The Game" are really thrillers than one of them is my favourite.
December 4, 2011, 8:44 pm           



 
@HateTheHate: @Perczynski Yeah, but the ending is a bit weak. :) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:44 pm           



 
@GoIntoTheStory: By my count, "In The Blood" is the 102nd spec script sale in 2011. Sales are up 96% year-to-date over 2010. #screenwriting #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:44 pm           



 
@teenierussell: I really enjoyed The Manchurian Candidate, kept me intrigued throughout #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:45 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @TaroJ Vertigo is definitely a good one, great twists #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:46 pm           



 
@eising: @teenierussell My favorite thriller is Abre los Ojos! #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:46 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @TaroJ @teenierussell Oh, Vertigo is fantastic. Rear Window? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:46 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Perczynski I would definitely say Inception is a thriller. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:47 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @teenierussell Love some De Palma - Blow Out, Snake Eyes (would love to see the original ending). Shadow of a Doubt... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:47 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @HateTheHate Yeah. Very weak. I got my own category for those type of films FWFUE - Film With Fucked UP Ending :) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:47 pm           



 
@LewSwift: @teenierussell Which version? Original or remake? Very different climaxes. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:47 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @eising I ahve only seen the Tom Cruise re-make - Vanilla Sky #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:47 pm           



 
@barbrorakos: @TaroJ @Will_Scothern @teenierussell yes, "Rear Window," especially the scenes of Grace evading the murderer. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:48 pm           



 
@zacsanford: Solid! RT @GoIntoTheStory "In The Blood" is the 102nd spec script sale in 2011. Sales are up 96% year-to-date over 2010 #scriptchat

@teenierussell: @LewSwift I have only seen the re-make. Is the original better? #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:48 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Will_Scothern after being Bed ridden with a bad back for about a month I've been thinking about Rear Window a lot a classic #scriptchat

@eising: @teenierussell By far not as good as the original :-) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:49 pm           



 
@Bang2write: Too many writers get caught up in the notion of "pure" thriller vs "cross-genre" thriller - if it's thrilling, it's a thriller #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:49 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @SiFoulaReel I don't recall seeing any of those, will try to add one to my Love Film queue #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:49 pm           



 
@TaroJ: @Bang2write I think that sums it up perfectly :-) #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:50 pm           



 
@Will_Scothern: @barbrorakos @TaroJ @teenierussell And it all takes place in the one location. Superb film. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:50 pm           



 
@teenierussell: @Bang2write amen to that #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:51 pm           



 
@Bang2write: #scriptchat action, comedy, sci fi, mystery, even horror make it into the thriller - whatever it takes and best serves the story #scriptchat

@Perczynski: @Bang2write That's a good one. I'm a fan of this kind o genre's clasiffication! #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:51 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Bang2write And it's the execution that counts. Like a psycho thriller can only end 3/4 ways. Psycho dead or in jail, or... #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:51 pm           



 
@TaroJ: 10 minutes to go on our thrilling #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:52 pm           



 
@SiFoulaReel: @Bang2write or psycho wins / twist "it's not over" ending. So it's the way you do it, character, story that counts. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:52 pm           



 
@Perczynski: @Bang2write #scriptchat. Once my comedy has been rejected cause "...it was too funny.." -as TV exec wrote:)
December 4, 2011, 8:53 pm           



 
@barbrorakos: @Will_Scothern agreed! Plus unbeatable style. #scriptchat
December 4, 2011, 8:54 pm
