In the book, the main character is named Victor Frankenstein, but in the movie he is called Henry Frankenstein and his friend is shown as Victor Moritz. If someone read book as a first, and saw the movie later, he may feel a little bit confused. This change, could take place by the fact that director wanted to soften the image of the main character, which was portrayed as an insane, desire to compare himself with the god man, the name Victor in itself sounds rather scary and very seriously, and the name Henry sounds friendly and nice for the
Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves…[for being an] intolerant society”(61). “The liberal lesson of monsters
Hendrix’s writing style is also enjoyable to read. It’s funny and it seems like having fun while writing this book. The second half though, is where the horror truly begins. It’s creepy and surprisingly frightening. For a book marketed as a horror comedy, and after reading the first half of the book, I didn’t think that I would get that scared reading the rest of the book.
The main point of the article “Why We Crave Horror Movies” by Stephen King, is that many people enjoy reading and watching horror stories for many different reasons. One main reason King gives is that people just want to overcome their fears, show that they are brave. Others go just to have fun. But not the happy, playful type of fun rather fun that is dark,full of death and suspense. Many people enjoy this type of fun while others, like me, do not.
When the reader can imagine and picture the scene while reading the story because of the vivid detail and suspense, you know that the what you are reading is a work of art. These wonderful qualities are present in every line Edgar Allen Poe 's horror story, "The Tell-Tale Heart". Imagine you 're watching a horror movie in 3D, Stories like "The Tell-Tale Heart" by authors like Edgar Allan Poe have the same effect, by making it so easy to visualize the scene, he makes us feel like we are in the story waiting for the suspense to finally break. By explaining just how slowly he was going made the reader start to worry what would happen when he was finished, "It took me an hour to place my whole head within the opening so far that I could see him as he lay upon his bed." lines 29-31 of "The Tell-Tale Heart".
For instance, the very first sentence of Hollinger’s essay starts off with this quote, “As Stephen Neale suggests, an intimate relationship seems to exist among the filmic presentation of the horror monster, the castration anxiety it evokes, and the cinematic representation of the female form.” (Hollinger pg. 243 of the Monsters book), in which she uses to intrigue the reader and to give the reader an idea about the work. Hollinger tells the reader that Neale thinks that the usual origin of a monster in a film is due to a relationship that went wrong and also claims that men are more vulnerable to certain anxieties. The placement of her reference to Neale’s essay allows the reader to conduct an idea of what the essay is going to be about and makes the reader think about what is more threatening between feminine monsters or masculine monsters. I think it was creative of her to reference a well-known philosopher and that she was able to use it to have the reader thinking about movies they’ve watched and figure out whether they’ve actually seen any movie at all with a feminine monster and if they did, then they’d compare them to the masculine monster causing the reader to think even more!
The people who make horror movies really know how to get to the root of our fears and course that makes sense because scaring the wits out of us is their bread and butter. Whether they’re playing on our insecurities about own lives or bringing our darkest nightmares to life, we can’t get enough of horror movies. The truth is that we love the feeling of being afraid, it’s thrilling and gets our blood pumping, but we also want to feel that way in a safe environment i.e half hiding under the blanket in our bed at home. Now we all have our favorites when it comes to horror movies, some of us enjoy supernatural or religious themed stories while others like slasher or gore flicks, but I think we can all agree that when child actors appear in horror movies it makes them even more terrifying. Maybe it’s because we associate children with innocence so seeing one possessed by the demons or climbing out of tv screens really grabs our attention.
Moves can show emotion in ways real life can not and Tim Burton’s films do this by creating emotions that are contradictory. An emotional state or reaction is a feeling and movie directors use them to help create stories. Some of the best movies make you feel multiple ways at once to make your movie going experience the best it can be. he uses close ups, music, and low key lighting to create comidikly unnerving feelings in the audience. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory(Charlie) was a children 's story that Tim Burton adapted and turned it into a slightly darker story than the one we knew.
In the book author use word “simple and obvious” for horror movie.Horror movie will not give you instant scream or shock as roller coaster but it makes you scared mood in few hours or few days. Also when we watching horror movie we got feeling that someone is watching me or feels like someone is next to me.

It shows we always know the feeling before things happen.Horror movie always have sick joke or dirty job or something that impress people, this help people to watch their movie because you cannot get those feeling when you stay normal in real life. People always want something special in life, that’s why they travel around the world and try to find something that other people don’t have.
In other words, the story is worth reading, especially for science fiction readers and dystopian lovers. The dangers of censorship looms over civilization as it becomes closer to technology. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 deliberates a torn down society ridden with illegalities. His book shows what this world could become, and can provide great insight to help prevent a doomed
194 This sentence contains a simile, comparing Dick 's voice to a drug that has a large effect on Perry. This shows that he has an unknown power over Perry. We know that Perry already follows him around and does whatever Dick wants him to do, but he also seems like he might be a little bit addicted to him. The simile helps enhance the meaning of the sentence by helping the reader better understand the situation. Comparing Dick 's voice to almost a drug for Perry helps the reader see that even if Perry tried to get away, there would still be a part of him that would want to stay with Dick.
My overall thoughts on this movie were I found the death scenes to be brutal, fun, and one of a kind definetly more then intense then the original. At the same time a little more comedic, which took away most elements of fear for me. I was totally digging the death scenes, with how clever each one was. Most parts I had my eyes covered, which is another thing that gets me into a good horror film. Black Christmas had intese scenes of stalking as well giving it fresh unbelieveable views that somebody is watching under a bathroom tile.
Because of this, it has to go through some sort of modification to appeal to the modern audiences that go out to watch or purchase this film. The film’s way of doing this feat is to add some characters that appeal to the audience, which include Selma, the witch, Grendel’s son, and Grendel’s father. For example, Selma was added to represent the percent of people that feel like outcasts, Grendel’s son was added to humanize Grendel and show that he is more than just a monster out to kill people for no reason, and Grendel’s father was added to,again, humanize Grendel, and to give him a reason to go out and kill all those people. The inclusion of these characters were to show that Grendel is a human just like the rest of the people out to get him, but because of the mistreatment of his father and the way he was made an outcast, he had no choice but to lash out at these soldiers. This is a perfect example that almost anything that comes in a story could have a truthful
I completely agree with Lily that this was one of the funniest anecdote that we had read thus far. I think it shows another side of Stephen King because he is a dark horror and sci-fi writer, but reading about his life you see that he is also quite a comedian. In “On Writing” he has been able to make fun of his life and not take himself seriously, and you can sometimes see that he is reflecting on the memories and realizing in the moment of writing what they even meant. The anecdote that really stuck with me is when he talked about having both a drug addiction and being an alcoholic. The way that he described his conscious and unconscious realization that he was an addict was very interesting to read and see how his mind was working at that
The film’s greatest strength was its ability to not force opinions, but compels viewers to form their own views. The point of the movie was to not persuade the audience, but let the audience think about what they thought was truly the right thing to do. Often this film would mention Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X, but would never declare a “better” approach. Smiley, a man with a severe stutter, makes a comment saying, “This is Malcolm X and this is Martin Luther King. They are dead, but we still have to fight against hate”.
