My cast is made up of three people, with the scream queen and the final girl being sisters, and most importantly the doll. 

The three character types are;

  • The Final Girl
  • The Scream Queen 
  • Boyfriend of the Scream Queen
  • The Doll [Antagonist] 
I need two adult extras to play the girls parents however both my parents are willing to participate. 
So far all my cast are made up of Caucasian heterosexual people. To include some different areas of representation i have chosen to make the final girl religious. This can be connoted by a cross around her neck or by a shot of her next to or holding The Bible. 

My cast is made up of;
Laura Birtwistle (Scream Queen)
I picked Laura as she fits into the stereotype of a Scream Queen in that she has long blonde hair, is attractive (male gaze) and also has a slim build. I chose Laura in particular as she has acting experience as well as having a boyfriend willing to participate. 

Patrick Eaton (Boyfriend of Scream Queen)
Patrick (Paddy) was Laura's boyfriend in reality so it made sense to use him as her boyfriend in my opening as well. His role didn't require any particular look, just stereotypical male teenager thus making him an easy choice.

Elizabeth McPhail (Final Girl)
Elizabeth fits into the stereotype of a Final Girl as she has very versatile looks. We experimented with different looks to make her look younger and also to appear to be very demure and virginal looking. She has to come across as being studious so her clothes aren't going to be revealing and will be plain and simple. 


I am no longer using the above in the film. To find new people i've set up a group over Facebook asking who would be interested in acting. By doing this i will have a broader choice of people to choose from.
