Director Chaoyang Niu.
"Looking in the mirror" is scary with tricks.
Chaoyang Niu has made many MVs before. His last film was a thriller, and his reputation was quite bad. This time, he still challenged similar films. He said that he definitely learned from his experience.
Movie Network: The director’s last work "Someone under the Bed" is a thriller. Do you have a special liking for this theme?
Chaoyang Niu: It’s because the last film was a thriller that I want to continue filming this time to make up for some regrets. The audience made a lot of criticisms in the last film "There is someone under the bed", and I made some improvements to these criticisms, all of which were improved in this film "Don’t look in the mirror in the middle of the night".
Movie Network: What did you mainly do?improve?
Chaoyang Niu: Mainly in three aspects. First, the audience thinks that "There is someone under the bed" is not scary enough. This time, we are just thinking about the horror of the law. I think at least in domestic films, this play is the most scary; Second, the audience felt that there were more laughter, and there should be no laughter this time. We invited the audience to watch the film and no one would laugh. The third is that the last suspense was announced too early, and we felt bored when we saw the middle. This time, we kept the suspense until the last second, and we didn’t know the ins and outs of the story until we finished reading it.
Movie Network: Many people think that thrillers are actually mysterious. Is this drama scary enough?
Chaoyang Niu: At the beginning, we designed 50 scary spots, including more than 20 carefully carved ones. Moreover, within the framework of the story, there are scary places in the plot. The audience has seen many scary movies and there are all kinds of scary scenes. It is not easy to make the audience tremble.
Movie Network: NowThe basic reputation of thrillers is not good.How did you avoid it?
Chaoyang Niu: Yes, this is what all thriller directors should strive for. So far, mainland thrillers have not won a good reputation. I hope this play can become the first one.
Movie Network: Let the director estimate the box office.
Chaoyang Niu: I won’t make an estimate. Let’s leave it to the market, because there must be some high films and some low films at the box office. I believe our play will have a good box office.
