I am writing an essay on films, I am studying the camera movement, the scenario etc.
I am studying the films "scream", in this film the horror starts as early as the opening credits. The word scream appears on the screen in bold white letters, at this point you can hear a scream and the texts turns red, putting the picture in the viewers head that someone has been stabbed, this builds up the excitement, you then hear a number of screams, the text then blurs and eventually fades out of the screen, giving the idea that someone has died.
The first victim is typical, the first victim is female, she is blonde, flirtatious down the phone, home alone and she is a teenager. They make her seem weak because during the conversation she talks about her boyfriend and threatens the killer with him a number of times.
Another typical factor of this horror movie is where it is set; there is one big house in the middle of nowhere, trees surrounding the house which blocks some vision of the victim, no noise which makes viewers feel edgy and make them believe something is about to happen,
