    I purposely disposed of guns/knives/flame throwers/sharp pointy objects for this fest. I could've used a weapon, but I wanted to see if I could make the psych as ominous without a physical weapon.

    Other thoughts?

    ...I haven't had a thought for years now! But it sounds like a plan to me.

    Sure, I've got one with no weapons and a monster you don't see.

    'Nuff said.


    I'm fine with weapons in films as long as they are not used as a crutch.

    Love Rear Window.

    I agree about the crutch. If you need it, then sure use it. But if you can't build the tension cinematically or with the story itself...then work harder.

    Crutch as a weapon? Long John Silver?

    Hitchcock - rarely do you see a weapon. It's all about suspense. Except for "Psycho" and that butcher knife, dang...

    Just have Chuck Norris chasing someone. No weapons needed.
    I invented the "remove echo" audio filter. And only people that boom their actors closely get to use it.
