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.
The dark lighting and the gruesome images around the actors help to portray the dark mood to the viewers. Another reason why PBS’s Macbeth is a good adaption is the actors’ interpretations of the roles. All the actors, notably Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood, did a fantastic job.

Overall Burton’s dark style is obviously seen in his films like Edward Scissor hands And Beetle juice. It is very clear that the best ways he shows this is through low key lighting, music, and dialog. A dark and old house with no light gives a better example of fear than a glimmering mansion. Dark music helps enhance the mood of helplessness and suspense. Lastly dialog helps create a feeling of reality and meaning to the pictures and music that fly off the screen toward you.
That could very easily mean the mafia contributed to his campaign. The Mafia’s biggest and longest lasting impact on America can still be seen today.

In these movies they portray the gangsters as being cool people.
Maurice Jarre, one of the most prolific film music composers in the 20th century, can very much be the guy who the past generation can trace every single tune they find themselves humming unintentionally, to quote The New York Times: "[He was] among the most sought-after composers in the movie industry." One doesn 't get that much attention unless they wholeheartedly deserve it, at least back then. Despite Jarre mainly composing for concert works, he 's mostly known for his film scores. He had one of the earliest composer/director cooperations with director David Lean, composing for most of his movies, including Lawrence of Arabia, Doctor Zhivago, and the last movie Lean ever directed before he died, Ghost. He also had significant
The use of evolutionary frightening sounds and pitches intensifies tension, and builds up to action, while also relaying a sense of comfort. The cramped and cluttered camera shots address the close quarters and the havoc it creates on the relationships and distrust amongst both Michelle and Howard, and Emmett and Howard. Psychological fakery is used in the film to earn the audience’s trust, even though they are intentionally lying to them in order to establish character opinions. In return through the use of sound, cinematography, and psychological fakery 10 Cloverfield Lane is turned into an intense thriller- that sends the audience into an uncomfortable and frightened
Tim Burton popularly known around the movie industry and across the globe for having the most dark and quirky films of all time. From his 1990 classic Edward Scissorhands to his remake of a classic Charlie and the Chocolate factory. Keeping your eyes glued and focused on the screen is his main goal throughout each of these movies. To fabricate this essential ingredient Burton uses non diegetic sound, camera angles, and lighting to captivate the audience’s imagination and create an unrealistic atmosphere that only he himself can create. Non-diegetic sound used in Edward Scissorhands is used not only to establish the characters but also, to elucidate their surrounding relationships with others.

Furthermore, Hitchcock choose to controversially shoot his film in black and white.

Fincher perfectly aligns this scene with the overall standards of evil throughout the film by accentuating the sense of unnecessary violence and discomfort. In each “sin” Fincher portrays, it is interesting to note how the viewer only sees the aftermath. Fincher’s choice of not showing the initial acts of violence in each of these “scenes” amplifies the effect. It forces the viewer to imagine Doe’s acts as opposed to simply showing exactly what happened. For Fincher, the sense of evil evolves from the portrayal of the stereotypical “villain” committing acts of mindless violence to an elevated sense of evil with the “villain” meticulously planning and executing his acts to reveal the message he intends for the viewers to uncover.
