Thought it might be fun to have a thread where those of us who have an idea for a movie might share it with the ATS community!
I'll get the ball rolling;
Movie Idea (name); Feral Man
In a Nutshell; a man slowly becomes more animalistic as he tries to survive in the wilderness by following a pack of wild dogs.
Expanded; There is a man who is a dog breeder; he breeds German Sheppards, Siberian huskies, Golden Retrievers, and maybe some bull mastiffs
and some dobermans. Either as a result of a Global, or regional, catastrophic event(Perhaps a massive mudslide?), the world he knows is turned on
it's head. During the calamity, the dogs escape (including the bull mastiffs; this does not sit well with him, as they have yet to be trained and
are extremely large and powerful).
The road in is obliterated, and with no access to water, food, shelter, and without having the greatest knowledge of the wilderness(where he is), he
must try to fend for himself. He does so rather unsuccessfully, and after 2 weeks without hardly any food, he collapses and passes out.
He wakes up to the sound of many paws darting their way between the forest trees, barking and growling. The pack he had been separated from earlier
hadn't gone too far, and just made a Kill; this was his chance to eat. Exhausted, he desperately wanders through the woods. He very quietly and
carefully approaches a ledge, pulls himself flat to the ground with his chest, and peers over; he sees the former pack of dogs he was to train from
earlier.He eats the scraps they leave and proceeds to follow the pack (seemingly, his only hope of survival).
In the course of following the pack, he attempts to gain acceptance from it. He fails for most the most part , even though 2 of the dogs are familiar
with him(from the dog-breeding facility); yet, because of them, his presence is somewhat tolerated by the pack of, now, wild dogs. Eventually he
establishes a bond with 1 of the 2 dogs, and His "friend" brings him scraps from the kill, but sticks with the pack himself in the interest of his
own survival. His presence increasingly becomes an irritant to the pack, with some getting weary and snarling at him.
They make it clear; they do not want him around anymore. He is now forced to contend with the pack of wild dogs; they lunge at him, biting, snarling,
growling, barking. He fights, but is brought to his knees. He is about to give up, and just then, the dog which he established a bond with takes his
corner and defends him. Eventually dispersing 3 of his former allies, the rest fall in line, and this dog (who saved him) is now the alpha. The man is
astounded at what just happened; never in his life has any human being risked themselves for him, and here be this "wild" dog, bleeding, wounded,
but alive; and for him. He passes out from his wounds.
The next scene would be a dream of his, being attacked by dogs/wolves; he then wakes up at the hospital. The nurse comes in, doesn't look him in the
eye; the doctor is cold and uncaring. None of his family arrive, or even call, and his friends don't visit. That night he sleeps, and dreams of his
friend (the dog who saved him). He wakes up, and thinks about the doctor, the nurse, his family, his friends. Despite the wounds he suffered, he knew
where he needed to be; he pulls out his IV's, and tears out of the hospital, heading for the wilderness.
After rejoining with the pack of dogs, he is accepted. Slowly, he regress's into a more animalistic being, and once his person is completely changed
into this dog like creature, he becomes fully integrated into the pack (maybe even the leader?); he becomes The Feral Man.
