‘A stand up comedian locks horns with a fiendish heckler, who becomes his stalker… Things then take much more sinister turn’
The re-emergence of 80’s Horror
The unique nature of the Horror genre is that fear translates into a universal language on screen – a primal emotion born into everyone. Horror is the only genre with a colossal, loyal fan base, who largely still purchase physical copies (DVD, Blu-Ray) as well as being hungry for video on demand content. Meaning both corners of the market are covered.
Eighties horror films ironically (given their scares) give us a warm, fuzzy feeling inside. This style of horror represents a more innocent time for cinema where the cabin in the woods style and the psycho-killer styles hadn’t yet become cliche. ‘Heckle’ pays homage to eighties tropes whilst having its primary core as a modern, intelligent horror . Heckle is perfectly placed in the market when audiences will not accept cheap thrills or over used plot devices that are so common today.
The concept of a stand up comedian locking horns with an insane heckler is the flame burning from the start of the narrative. That simple ‘what if?’ that Horror audiences are always asking – ‘what if this happened to me?’ We’ve all been to stand up comedy events and most of us have seen a moment where it seems a comedian may have gone too far. The Heckle script pushes that premise through a blackly comic journey, with an unforeseen and terrifying twist that ultimately results in a grizzly conclusion…
