This is prevalent due to the fact that the moment the monster is created, Victor calls it a catastrophe and is horrified by what he has created. He explained, “The beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart” (Shelley 51). When Victor uses words such as “dream vanished”, “breathless horror” and “disgust” he is showing his emotions for the
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.
Recreating a classic story such as Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet from stage to film is a difficult task, but both Franco Zeffirelli and Baz Luhrmann were able to execute the challenge. This classic play is based on the story of “a pair of star-crossed lovers” (Rom. 1.0.6) who fall in love despite the feud happening between their families. Sadly, even with the undying love they have for each other, their love story ends in a tragedy. The story of Romeo and Juliet is a typical love at first sight plot but includes various other aspects that make the story interesting and different to other movies or stories with the same basic plot line. For example, there are many outside complications that are stopping them from pursuing their love as well as a surprise twist at the end to conclude the legendary play.
Frankenstein made arrangements for the creature's components to be 'wonderful'. This passes on a striking picture that stands out from Victor mockingly rehashing wonderful.

Becoming a successful director in this genre means that one has to comprehend its spectator. The director has to excel at predicting audience’s reaction, misleading them with the goal of horrifying and shocking to experience the much sought for thanatotic pleasure. Sister Jude 's declaration "I see you for exactly who you are" is, therefore the director telling us that he is aware of the conventions and clichés and knows exactly how to manipulate and mislead his audience. This declaration becomes even more poignant due to the fact that Carrie’s(De Palma, US 1976) soundtrack “Bucket of Blood” is running in the background. Additionally, this particular shot contributes to the identification of the spectator with Lana due to the fact sister Jude is addressing both of them.
However, Hitchcock played with the high key lighting in a different way to border his characters flaws and expose them, which is a fear that we all have and can relate; having our darkest desires held up to the light for the world to see. In a sense Hitchcock is saying with her death and his insanity, here it is and look at it. This gives way to the themes of the movie lack of privacy. When Norman bates was in the interrogation room, Hitchcock used a wide shot to place the character in the middle of the frame to highlight the lonely and insanity of the

In King’s Playboy-published essay, “Why We Crave Horror Movies,” he examines the popular trend of attending horror films, and he uses various techniques of persuasion. Excluding the fact that he is America’s best-known most influential writer of horror fiction, to accomplish his goal of driving us into the world of horror he begins his essay with a very clever hook: “I think that we’re all mentally ill; those of us outside the asylums only hide it a little better…”.
