Transcript

  • 1. Psychotic behaviour By Samantha Recknell
  • 2. Why the theme of psychotic behaviour and what is it? <ul><li>This has been considered as one of our themes as from previous research and knowledge, this is a key theme in thriller films such as psycho. </li></ul><ul><li>Psychosis means abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a &quot;loss of contact with reality“. </li></ul><ul><li>I think this is really interesting as in thrillers, this tends to be the case where many of the scenes contain some kind of abnormality in a person. E.g. acting strange. </li></ul>
  • 3. Depression/ abnormality <ul><li>Depressive Neurosis. It is difficult to distinguish between &quot;normal </li></ul><ul><li>depression&quot; and &quot;abnormal depression&quot; which could be termed depressive neurosis. </li></ul><ul><li>From time to time, very well adjusted people feel sad, discouraged, pessimistic, and a </li></ul><ul><li>sense of hopelessness. When these feelings all come together, we say we have the </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;blues.&quot; Such feelings usually go away on their own and we get on with our lives. A </li></ul><ul><li>state of neurotic depression is different in that this type of depression is more severe </li></ul><ul><li>and lasts longer. Additionally, a person suffering from a depressive neurosis does not </li></ul><ul><li>bounce back to normal after a reasonable period of time. Usually, a traumatic event led </li></ul><ul><li>to the depression, an event the person can relate. A patient may exhibit the following </li></ul><ul><li>signs and symptoms: </li></ul><ul><li>A high level of anxiety. </li></ul><ul><li>Apprehensiveness. </li></ul><ul><li>Much less activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Loss of self-confidence. </li></ul><ul><li>Fewer interests. </li></ul><ul><li>General loss of initiative </li></ul>After completing some research on psychotic behavior, we have decided to have these as one of our themes to experience a man/women stalking another person who he is obsessed with. This has also helped as we can now use some of the symptoms of psychotic behavior in our film opening sequence such as paranoia, anxiety.
