What Infected scenes do you feel would be needed for the full experience to come across the big screen?

    Consiguió hacer la escena en la que Perry saca el primer triángulo con las pinzas. Supongo que no es realmente un triángulo todavía, pero la cosa blanca en la pierna de Perry, y luego se aplasta en el espejo. Eso tiene que ser una gran escena.

    seeing some of these old threads being resurrected lately. Tho I am some what biased when it comes to this thread. I agree, this scene would definitely set the tone and mood for the movie.

    Gotta make the scene where Perry pulls the first triangle out with the tweezers. I guess it’s not really a triangle yet, but the little white thing in Perry’s leg, and then he squishes it on the mirror. That has to be a big scene.

    Bill being cruciphied to the wall with steak knives is a must. No question.

    The whole phone taps with Triangle Murder Death Kill.  It was one of my favorite parts of the intro…..

    You need to have the scene where Perry murders Bill since Bill was like Perry’s only friend and it is a big part in the book since its one of the main reasons why Perry got in more trouble with the police and it shows how over the edge Perry had gotten. The bathroom scene should also be there since it was the first time Perry acually SAW a triangle of sorts in the book.

     Bill is/was Perry’s lifeline/emotional check valve and Perry has a deep respect for him as a friend. Perry’s turning on Bill shows to what extent the triangles control via the induced paranoia has on a person. Even someone as strong willed as Perry. In comparison, imagine the influence they exert on the average person

    Perry killing Bill in such a brutal way kinda shows just how bad off the infection has made him. i know he was a little twisted to begin with, but beating his best friend to death relays the paranoia and fear that the triangles have put into his mind.

    Keep Bill.  Remember, this is not going to be a gore fest.  You heard it from the screenwriter himself that it’ll be a lot more about Perry’s inner struggle to keep his sanity… the more contrast you get between that and the real world outside, the better.

    I disagree on Bill. The major part of Perry’s story is his descent into hell and without some sunlight and fellowship at the beginning of the story his journey won’t have the same impact. If he starts off isolated and then things get bad an essential part of his transformation would be missing

    Maybe Margaret should discover and describe the effects as it’s happening to perry, such as when they discover the tentacle wrapped around the ear nerve (forgot the name), perry starts hearing the voices of the triangles

    I agree they would have maintain the individual plot lines to stay true to the book and Scott’s writting style.

    well they have to include the whole perry part but they’ll probly cut out a ton from dew philips and the scientist. I hope they dont just make them a sideshow. one of the great things about the book was the three perspectives.

    being infected brings it home. Not just adults but children also are being infected. That will bring the hate/disgust factor for the triangles to a whole new level.

    I think one of the scenes that would translate real well on screen is when Margaret, Otto and Amos visit the home of Samantha Hester. The image of the kid coming out of the kitchen with the blue growth in his eye and firing the cap guns I think would stick with a lot of people once they walk out of the theater. It may not be as essential as the chicken scissors but it needs to be in the movie.

    he even said he wants to play as that part.

    in which Perry is mentally conversing with himself? This is an essential part of the story.

    As an example if you’ve seen the movie Cujo, it pales in comparison to the book.  The reason being is in the book you get to follow Cujo’s ever increasing confusion and failing thought process as he succumbs to the rabies. Cujo’s mental self realizations are omitted in the movie. The movie portrays Cujo as a rabid killer while the book portrays him as a loving family pet becoming confused about his actions and behaviors while falling into the murderous dementia caused by the rabies.

    view from inside the center of the stove burner as Perry sits down on it. It would show the triangle blinking in fascination before its fried!

    But he doesn’t really need to play a major role. He just needs to make an appearance in a way that the junkies will see him.

    You would have to get a really good lead actor to play Perry…one with the soulful "my eyes can convey so much emotion".

    because we will need to see his shock and revulsion, especially when he cuts off his own penis….!

    That would be so F*&kin’ WIcked if the scene was shot right to see them opening their eyes. The voices should sound all tinny and raspy at the same time….also where Perry is limp-skipping away from his apartment to his car and the triangles start telling him there are more and they are hatching.Funky!

    is when Perry is explaining the concept of distance by showing the ruler to the triangle in his butt cheek.

    Maybe a cadaver in a morgue scene? No, that right, Scott’s the walking cadaver. Have Perry order a pizza and he can be the delivery guy.

    is a peak in the book–I think Perry’s actions make it clear just how serious things are. It may have been his Dad who influenced him to avoid the hospital in general, but there was already more going on in his head… don’t believe me… just watch the scene!

    There has to be some awesome sound effects for those scenes also. Some slurpy, drippy, squishy and crunchy type noises.

    it has potential if not in the right hands to be a corny scene. The blinking definately. And the rotting goop in his shoulder. and what red said. the hatching also.

     the scene where perry pulls out the premie white triangle out of his leg and hearing the ligaments and muscle tear,then to see the well anchored hook claws wrench from beneath his skin and watch them come up and out of the hole on his leg just to see perry throw up as he gets close to the wound as he smells it,then just to watch him smack the drunkin microphone with his head and pass out.

    Now that we know Infected has a director and the screenplay is going to be written. What scenes do you think would be critical in delivering the full impact of the story? Of course the Chicken Scissors scene is a given. But what about others? I myself feel the scene in which the Triangles open their eyes for the first time and blink, if shot right, would be a startling and un-nerving sight!  And the Triangle voices? Would they be just as creepy if they sounded different from what we are used to hearing? What do you think Junkies!
