    I need to make a short film for my Media Studies coursework and I've planned to make a horror film as my essay is based on the horror genre. I'm making a horror film that relies more on the buildup of suspense and tension as opposed to violence, blood and gore. I'm completely blank on ideas though so any ideas of would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.

    Setting: a peaceful prosperous country somewhere on the edge of Europe

    an evil mastermind re-programs the viewers of ITV via subliminal messages on adverts. the victims are turned into zombie-voters.

    soon after there is a referendum and the zombie-voters all sign the wrong box and bring calamity and woe upon their country.

    Ok, so I call this 'Parasite' the basic plot is:
    Act 1 a huge house party with lots of people partying at the protagonists house,
    Act 2 in the following days after the party the protagonist begins to get the feeling their being watched or somethings not right in the house, this is a combination of phantom noises, things going missing and general things to make you uneasy. Act 2 ends with the protagonist viewing security camera footage to see which one of his/hers friends/flatmates has been stealing, only to discover a disheveled homeless guy creeping around the house.
    Act 3 basically the protagonist and a group their group of flatmates/friends trying to hunt down the 'parasite' only to find out the homeless guy is hunting them...
