  • One More MELVIN EVIL question

    We don't have a "Tagline" section, so I thought I'd post here for some more opinions.

    When I need to send info around about the project (for investment, etc.) I include the movie's tagline. Which of these would pique your interest more for my movie which is titled, MEVIN EVIL?

    "Evil has a name. And it is... Melvin?"

    or

    "He just ain't that good at being bad."

    This is great, but I wonder if it wouldn't be better as a spoken tagline.

    I think taglines could be vetted in loglines.

      "You can't spell Melvin without EVIL. And, uh, MN."

          I can picture the second one on a poster more easily. I gree with Hairy that the first one could work in a trailer.

            You guys are dead-on about the first one being tailored more towards being spoken. The idea actually came to me as part of the trailer.

            In the movie, Melvin is fond of proclaiming, in his own pathetic, wanna-be tough guy manner, "Evil has a name, and it is Melvin!" - In the trailer, I plan on using Melvin saying, "Evil has a name, and it is..." Then quick cutting to several other characters saying, in an incredulous manner, "Melvin?"

            I agree the other is probably more effective written. In the promotional material and DVD cover, if I use the first one, maybe a picture of dopey Melvin would help get the point of the tagline across?

            Deek, that's actually pretty funny! Once I'm doing the character, with the "evil eyes" in place, I may do that line and use it as a promotional snippet.
