Abstract

REMEMBER is a film script that operates within the horror genre but touches upon the subgenre of body horror as well as the sub-subgenre of body modification/alteration. It examines psychological and sociological issues such as identity and acceptance, gender understanding and social assignment.

The story follows five young women who live outside the norms of ‘acceptable’ society. After an accident near a small, isolated, rural town called Tantalus leaves them stranded with strangers, the girls soon find that something is amiss. Having arrived during a tornado just before the towns Founder’s Day festival, they discover there is more in Tantalus than meets the eye. The town is founded on a dark past which appears to be returning in a fashion. Now with a body count rising and no way to leave, the women find themselves connected to the murders. The only question that remains is how?
