"NON - HORROR" is my first and foremost key to create a HORROR work. Why not? As you know, THE FEAR is the main theme in the horror works that the filmmakers need to make a difference. There are two traditional "scaring" ways, are VISUAL HORROR and NEAR - DEATH EXPERIENCE, has always been used in almost all horror films. As if everyone walks together on an only trail, and whether they can distinguish which difference or who unique, except themselves, so I won’t keep deepening them in my "non-horror" way anymore.
The EXISTENTIALISM will be mentioned in my work to provide more concepts for the human fear. Firstly, the visual horror will be replaced by NONVISUAL HORROR, such as SOUNDS, MEMORY, THE LOOPS (time loop, space loop). In essence, NON-EXISTENCE CONCEPTION will replace for the near-death experience (non-existence does not means dead).
So, I list to here that
The only ONE ACTOR in my work, are PROTAGONIST.
The B-STORY within family relationship is known by SOUNDS.
The companion SUBPLOT is also the ENEMY, as a COMPUTER.
The only ONE MOVIE SET is the VIRTUAL ROOM.
The only ONE TARGET is ESCAPE ROOM.
The only ONE OBSTACLE is THE LOOP.
