Introduction

Compare how Spielberg and Anenabor succeed in creating suspense in extracts from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and " The Others" Spielberg's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and Anenabor "the others" both depend on creating suspense and mystery. "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" is set in Indiana in about 1970's. It is about aliens visiting earth. The film is actually very good at portraying that there is aliens presence without actually seeing them until the end. The scene I am looking at is where a boy wakens from his sleep because of some sound outside/inside his house. All his mechanical toys start to move and make noises. The boy unfazed by this, scrambles down stairs towards a bright light coming from outside. ...read more.

The scene I am focusing on is where the mother hears someone up stairs and about three days ago her daughter had inform her about seeing a ghost. The mothers was annoyed by this and though her daughter was lying, so she told her to stand on the stairs and read the bible out loud until she was prepared to admit she was lying. The mother goes to investigate what the noise is she goes into the junk room. Once she had had a good look around she went down stairs and order her maid to open all the curtains to uncover every dark corner in the house. ...read more.

Conclusion

Then we are taken straight to a close up on the boy (Barry) asleep. In the background we hear a dog bark this may suggest that the aliens are present because the dog has just woken up. The trees outside are rustling and are also casting a shadow over Barry's pillow. The dog barking wakes Barry but he just lies there for a few seconds. Then all of a sudden this mechanical toy monkey on his dresser begins moving manically, it nosily clashes its two cymbals together. We get a shot of the monkey just clashing away and then other toys start to move, Barry sits up from all the noise and looks around the room. The camera looks at each toy as they start moving as if it was in Barry's point of view. ...read more.

    The other purpose that this scene fulfils is to throw the audience off the trail of a slasher movie by manipulating the audience into thinking that the film is all about the $40,000 that Marion has stolen.
