Movies are a different way of portraying a story, but movies aren’t always able to depict everything in the book. The movie depiction is able to elicit fear through cinematic techniques, and the novel uses fear in a different way than the movie which is more effective in frightening the reader. Haunting of Hill House is considered a cinematic classic. Using mise-en-scene the director can elicit fear. Hill House is full of statues and mirrors,
Based on this idea, viewers believe that film is about the way Burton feels about himself and how he considers himself to be an outsider. Burton's amazing directing techniques can be seen in this film as it sets the entire mood of the film and allows him to focus the viewer in as well as keep the viewer entertained. Burton's use of emotion, sound, lighting, and other techniques contribute to the film's overall quality.
Instead of being the documentary like film that it would have been, (had the writers and producers stuck to the original story) they decided to turn it into an action movie. I think that this is partly because action movies tend to sell a lot better, as well as capture the attention of most people. In the film, we got to see more of people interacting with each other during the global chaos, as opposed to having a deeper focus on the zombies themselves. I think that film wouldn’t have been as good as it is, had they tried to focus more on the same things the book focused on (the zombies, for example). Had they made it like the novel, it might have become
The dark and depressing vibe was a traditional style for film noir. Another tradition of film noir is making the audience think the movie is about a different topic than the actual topic of the movie.

The movie uses the storytelling device of interviews to show the traits of Bernie in a short amount of time, but it is very impactful. Hearing how great someone is from others can influence someone’s opinion gratefully, and that’s exactly how the movie uses interviews in Bernie. Interviews are quick and effective way to show a lot of information quickly, and that’s why they are used in Bernie. The whole first part of the movie is interviews, so it has a large impact on the plot and theme. In the movie there is a large difference in socio-economic classes and the interviews help to capture this.
The most critical part of a horror movie, is the suspense. The Shining did a satisfying job when it came to each scene, having its own little twist. These little twists added up in the end to make the film as striking as possible. With these little twists in mind it brings an example out from the movie. This is shown by the scene in which, the little boy named Danny is in his bathroom talking to his invisible friend Tony, in which lives in Danny’s mouth.
Zombie movies are an outlet for people to experience apocalyptic anxieties without it confronting them. The living dead are fictional threat, despite its scary and realistic nature makes the audience feel safe. It does not create much anxiety as compared to receiving news about tsunamis or avian flu. When watching the movie “I am legend” one can witness the various kinds of graphic violence and destruction. At the end of the movie the audience will know that this particular threat of humans turning into zombies will simply cease to exist compared to war or nuclear threats.
The setting in the film supports to the characterisation and decoration effect to the horror narration. The setting of opening presents effective narration to the overall story that attracted to the audiences’ attention. The setting and decoration of sugar mill, cemetery and voodoo master’ castle are main things in the film and support to story narration. Voodoo master wares the same dress in the hold film and it is like adapting from Dracula but this props support to the horror narration. Madeline wares the wedding dress while she lives in voodoo master castle that attracted sympathy as virgin
So, the use of sleep in the horror genre is anything but unusual and the device is definitely not a new construct. As early as 1897, authors were using sleep as devices in their own horror works. Bram Stoker does this in his novel Dracula. Like A Nightmare on Elm Street, the characters’ own subconscious minds are working against them. However, instead of Freddy
