So, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's probably a bad idea to completely change the focus of my 10 page research paper the night before it's due.
At least I'm getting more results for my new topic and can reasonably write about it. It's just frustrating to go back after already doing some of the research. The new topic is Gothic influences on films, and I'm going to write about Alien, The Jacket, Nightwatch and The Matrix as case examples. I've actually found info on a couple of these, so here's to hoping that I'll have more luck with this topic.
