I decided that I would use the main elements of German expressionism in mainly my makeup for the outsider characters. The characters will have harsh and contoured lines on the nose, cheekbones and jaw. The eyeshadow will mainly consist of blacks, browns and some dark reds, which creates a very bold look. The bags under the eyes will be heavily accentuated by using browns and blacks again, to give an exaggerated fatigued look. Where?
Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) (1920)It wasn’t until the 1920s, though, that German horror — and German Expressionism — hit its creative stride. Robert Wiene’s The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) was a landmark film that has become the epitome of the Expressionist movement, with its dreamlike sequences and distorted set design with painted buildings and landscapes (including painted-on light and shadow) that resemble abstract art. Wiene’s lesser-known Genuine (1920) had sets designed by Expressionist painter César Klein, using the same artistic methods as Caligari, while Wiene’s The Hands of Orlac (1924) used highly stylized direction and dreamy sequences to tell the story of a pianist who’s driven insane when he receives hand transplants from an executed
We all build up anger and frustration that creates an insane side of us. We can’t act like were okay all the time as if we didn’t have any problems of our own because than sooner or later we’ll have to let them out. We might not know how to deal with our anxieties and fears. That’s why King believes that the horror movies help us with them. We are able to portray ourselves as the monster, letting us have some sort of psychic relief.
Thematically, these characters, especially Cole, have fears that they must face. Conceptually, M. Night Shyamalan uses symbolism to highlight the presence of death in the film. Fear and symbolism are vivid elements that are displayed throughout characters who rely on one another to recognize their distress. In this film, moving on is a tremendous fear that is illustrated within The Sixth Sense. At the beginning of the
With special effects in horror movies causing audience members to act angrier in their personal life, it can also hamper a person’s social life. Being angry can hamper a person’s social life by that person being a bad influence on other people and can compel them to elude that person because they do not want that negative behavior around them. According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, a 24 hour hotline that provides help and comfort to abusive relationships, said that a person’s “anger can cause people to feel put off, upset, intimidated, afraid, or a handful of other unpleasant emotions, [and it can run] the risk of pushing loved ones out of [that person’s] life for good.” It is very beneficial to a person to seek to repress their anger when dealing with others. Having friends and family around can greatly help a person when dealing with psychological issues and also help to avoid suffering from potential loneliness. According to Kendra Shelley, a psychological rehabilitation specialist, said that loneliness can have many negative effects such as “depression and suicide, increased stress levels, antisocial behavior, and can result in alcoholism and drug abuse.” A person that is able to sustain their social life can be beneficial when dealing with psychological issues because it will let that person have a support group to help that person
Paranormal activity uses lighting that dims the opacity of a scene to suit the genre (horror). The director deliberating darkens the set to emit the fear and suspense, needed to engage the viewer.

Shadows and silhouettes were an important feature of expressionism, to the extent that they were actually painted on to the sets in The Cabinet of Dr Caligari. The story lines of German expressionist films suited the visuals in terms of darkness and disillusionment. Frequently darkish in the mood and featuring characters from a corrupt underworld of crime, the films’ dramatic effects produced motifs of claustrophobia and paranoia. The same words could be used to describe 1940s Hollywood film noir, which was hugely influenced by German expressionism. Film noir is typified by Bogart and Bacall in films such as The Big Sleep.
The construction of suspense in this film is created by its unnerving and slowly developing but simultaneously complicated plot and character development, in which the viewer is condemned to be engrossed by these everyday characters and their ailments. It can 't be denied that the plot itself was intense in its makeup and backstory. Underlying social issues, such as racism, and pulling in tragic French history like the Paris Massacre of 1961 also spawn suspense among the common viewer, naturally. In addition, authentic cinematic techniques evoke an apprehensive and tense reaction from the audience. By combining the plot and cinematic techniques like Haneke did, it is no wonder why the film is said to be a complete harmonisation of content and form.
