RS - Changes to the ending of our opening
So after a long discussion on the ending , we have come to decision to make it end like this.
Theres a close up of the man's eye opening.
And then a mid/long shot of the man sitting up, after we think he has been killed.
I have provided a clip of what we think it should look like. Watch the clip from the beginning to around 10-15 seconds. We couldn't find a clip of the bit in Halloween when Mike Myers also does this, which is an example of it working in a horror film and not just being a bit silly
