Elf (2003). I'll admit it. I just never got Will Ferrell until I saw elf. He's childish, but in the best way possible. When holiday stress starts to edge out the good stuff, I pop this dvd into the player and get the joy of the season back again.
The video game Silent Hill also served as an inspiration during the early process. Whilst, a lot of these ideas was later thrown out it has given us an idea for what some of the psychological aspects for the film will be.
