    • Textual Analysis of the Opening Credits
    •  Landscapes, mountains, lakes, forest, a car driving alone on the road. Yellow colour car, connotes –happiness, neutral, energy, sunshine.  The credits are scrolling from down screen upwards fast.  The further the car travels the snowier and higher the landscape views – in the middle of nowhere, no neighbours, not an easy escape.
    •  Wide shot moving forward – supports the idea of the car moving, the audience are on the same journey.  The wide shot rotates – could suggest an unsuspected events to come?  High angle shot – indicates status of the victims, the shot rotates the direction in which the car is going.  Another wide shot behind the car, wide shot parallel to the car.
    •  The duration of the landscape shots are long – connotes mysterious, strange.  A jump shot from one to another.  The credits scroll upward in blue – colour connotes cold, depth.
    •  Only non-diegetic music – dramatic irony/ the characters don’t hear the horror style music and don’t know what they are getting into.  Orchestral trumpets – low notes, connotes danger and darkness.  High pitched noises, mysterious, screams, supernatural.
