whats up everyone :)
So let me get to the point, I am working at this haunted house called fright town in Portland, Oregon. I am in this sort of huge crate thing in a room (think of a caged lion but not and i can jump on the sides because its reinforced) (room is called hammers and slats if that helps) and I play this psycopath/cyberbilly. Now i know what to do as far as mannerisms and movements go. But I'm tired of just saying "AH" or not saying anything because I cant think of anything to say. I need help on some stuff to say.
I have an example if it helps...
"DO you have any idea what its like to be TRAPPED (hit the side of the crate) like a caged animal!? ITS IRRITATING!....why don't you folks be nice and let a fella out huh?!"
hope my description can help you guys come up with some ideas :)

"Hi there fellow. Yep, I'm trapped in this cage, wanna let me out? No you don't, my name is Genie, or is it satan? Maybe Dracula? they have all been imprisoned in boxes every so often but not for long. Better not let me out, get away from that latch!"
Then if some smart ass touches the latch , have a hidden switch inside the cage that temporarilly interupts the room's lighting, going to full darkness for a second or two.

Lobo, I *really* liked your idea of trying to "convince" people to let you out. Just like you said, you could vacillate between being all nicey nice and then getting enraged when nobody moves to let you out.

That would creep me out! :)

get some sound effects going on of random animals and demons and stuff and play it as if its coming from inside the cage, make it really loud and bang on side of cage, but dont start soundtrack or banging until there right next to it.

or get an air cannon and blast it right next to cage, and everytime it goes scream like something is getting you from inside the cage.

Haunting Copy: Haha, thank you, I kind of just thought of that while I was typing that message lol.

Undertaker: Nice Ideas, I am supposed to be the one attacking though. The sound effects thing sounds REALLY good too...now only challenge will be to find animal sound effects :)

Hmm. That air cannon idea is pretty good! You could make it seem as though someone were torturing you, and you could scream and "grab" at the customers and beg for mercy.

And then, of course, get really pissed when they won't help.

Sympathy and revulsion, a great combo! >:)
