|Male gaze in Psycho: scream queen in shower|
Summary of Research into Slasher Film Audiences
Our Target Audience
We decided our target audience would also be 15-24 year olds. This is because this was the most common target audience we saw throughout our research in to the genre. This tells us there is an already established audience for the slasher genre, and as filmmakers we would utilise this by also targeting the same audience. We also decided to have two scream queens. This is using the male gaze theory to attract men into the film.
