For instance, Hitchcock purposefully used specific shots to captivate the acting and emotions of each character. In The 39 Steps, Hannay and Pamela (Madeleine Carroll) estranged and juxtaposition relationship, is what saves this film from being more than just suspense but helps add a romance touch to the film. When Hitchcock used wide shots, he captures the Hannay and Pamela’s emotional discomfort. The primary shots that Hitchcock uses in The 39 Steps, are close-ups instead of wide shots. Hitchcock uses close-ups to create suspicion in characters’ faces.
The movie uses suspense and surprise throughout the film to keep the viewer entertained and anticipating what could possibly happen next. Visions uses both suspense and surprise effectively throughout the entirety of film, as any good horror film does. Surprise is an element of film that 's meant to cause intense startlement of the viewer. This technique a lot of times defines the movie as horror and certainly in the case of Visions. Surprise is one of the most effective ways a movie can put instantaneous fear in the viewer and make them “jump”.
Creating a suspenseful movie without it becoming boring, or creating a funny movie that’s not full of cheap jokes are both feats in their own right but the Coen brothers were able to combine the two into there one with their knockout debut Blood Simple. Blood Simples editing creates a suspenseful neo noir film that is full of dramatic irony. The audience knows going on behind the scenes but the characters don 't and they keep making the worst choices. The first edit I will look at in the film is when Marty breaks into Rays house and grabs hold of Abby. The editing here is reminiscent of Russian montage editing and creates a panicked feeling in the audience.
Contrary though, in scenes where Ellen takes a step back her clothes become drab and layered. The makeup used in these scenes add dark circles to Ellen’s eyes and make Ellen’s face look more angular or thin. This detail is also extended to other characters and even set design with particular locations being used for positive or negative events based on their design. These details as they are used, greatly increase the emotions and realistic tone the movie tries to
Psycho, like most Hitchcock films, employs voyeurism in an effort to place a sense of involvement and culpability on the audience for events at hand. Although Psycho begins as a seemingly normal story of a woman attempting to take life into her own hands, things quickly take a sinister turn. Perhaps the most unconventional move seen in films to that point in time, Hitchcock utilizes a perspective shift midway into the movie. Generally, through a first-person perspective, viewers are forced to form an emotional attachment to the narrator. This is often accompanied by an uncontrollable urge to see them succeed, despite the immoral actions of some.
Burton uses sound in his movies to do exactly that. In his movies, he uses non-diegetic sound to help build suspense and to entertain the viewer. In Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Burton builds suspense by using very intense music that only the viewer can hear as Jake goes to open a door, thus making the viewer sit on the edge of their seat waiting for the next couple of seconds to define the fate of the character. In Big Fish, Burton uses a dark and menacing musical tone while Edward is fighting with the big fish for his wedding ring back; then, right when he released the fish, the music changed to a mystical and happy tone to express Edward’s triumph and to add to the beauty of that scene. In Edward Scissorhands, the music varies throughout the whole movie.
A distinct variation between long, drawn out camera shots and short, snappy shots that create suspense by keeping the viewer agitated. An example of this technique clearly building and releasing suspense can be observed in the notorious shower scene - where lengthy, slow shots of Marion undressing and entering the shower accompanied by suspenseful music are then followed by sharp, jarring and disorientating cuts of Marion’s murder. Hitchcock also uses the camera to lead the narration, which is extremely effective. To elaborate, the camera in Psycho takes on human qualities, following the persona, which makes the viewer feel as though they are uncovering the mystery story in the film; thus creating suspense. This is exhibited in the scene where Marion is unpacking her bags and attempting to hide the money she has stolen.
American author, Stephen King is known for his, rather, disturbing and on edge movies. Some might say he is the best when it comes to horror films. He knew the best ways to get under people 's skin, and when to do it. Each one of his movies took a different approach. There is a movie or everyone, and their fears.
The method is to make the structure of the essay similar to the structure of filmmaking and pay attention to many elements and symbols that influenced the viewers, consciously or unconsciously. The concentration is on comparing and finding the changes that history made to this movie genre, especially considering the gender roles. Results will clearly explain the psyche of society in two different periods, which confirms that people reflect the movies as movies have an impact on people.

In response, he knocks the floor with his feet and scares them away. “Fakhri remained inside the kitchen, but she left there to the prince’s room when she became worried about him. But as the prince started to knock the floor with his feet, she ran away to her room, sitting in front of a mirror, noticing the lowest noises so that she can hear him stepping down the stairs while calling her name.” (8, Golshiri) .In the first parts of the book, the narrator introduces these two women as two separate characters. Little by little, he describes Fakhr-o-Nesa’s acts as though he is uncertain of her existence. “Wearing the same white dress which was waved by wrinkles down to her breasts, Fakhr-o-Nesa was standing beside the carriage, looking through her glasses, or not!” (10, Golshiri).
