My friends and I make horror movies together. Any ideas for characters, plots, settings, themes are greatly appreciated!

Don’t go with anything that’s big right now – I’m talking vampires, werewolves, zombies… go outside the box and go with something that hasn’t been done recently! :)

I totally agree with tightsentus…
John Carpenter said once that it’s what you don’t see that frightens you. Play with the viewers mind and imagination, avoid anything obvious & graphic. Come up with the ending (preferably a twist) and write the script backwards, like Shamalyan did with “The Sixth Sense”
All this involves a lot of thought, lacking in today’s screen writers (note the proliferation of remakes), but I’m sure you can do it!
