Opening Sequence:Low-angled close-up shot of the two car wheels and Jessica is walking towards the car while trying to find her car keys.
Long Shot:Mirror which you can see the car and a sign saying ‘Lock Out Auto Crime’. Car pulls into the car park as the security gate is slowly lifting up.
Long Shot:Car drives into the car park and the camera slowly moves down so you see the car driving down the car park.
Low-angled Shot:Car travels down the car park and begins to break. Break lights come on. Then incuts to an images of the car parked up. (this shot is taken from the ground so that the actor has more power over the audience.
Long Shot:Jessica gets out of the car. Then there is a shot of a clear and empty car park.
Long Shot:Jessica walks past the camera so we see her backs as she is walking past the two doors. But suddenly Jessica is looking behind her.
Point Of View Shot:(From audience and the ‘killers’ view) this shot makes the audience feel as if the are actually in the film.
Long Shot:A shot of Jessica walking down the ‘hallway’
Long Shot:Jessica then tries to open the door but receive a phone call which she then answers.
Shot-reverse-shot:Jessica answers the phone, shot of Brandon (the ‘killers) head which is taken from behind his shoulder (so that wee see Jessica’s reaction), quickly turns back the Jessica (quickly to add to the tension and pace), then a shot of Brandon’s face.

All the Titles:all the titles last a total of 38 seconds. The font used in these titles sequences is consistent and fits in with the genre as it looks scary and creepy.
The lighting used is to enhance the camera shots, the location and also ensures that the audience feels the correct atmosphere for the narrative. To create a horror you need touse low key lighting which then creates the scary and creepy feeling.
The location which this film is set in is a multi-story car park which then goes into a block of flats. The location is not a typical location to film a horror, as many people would thinkthat a horror film would be filmed in a dark and scary ally. But it links in with opening sequence camera shots as they are actually taken from the multi-story car park. I think that thelocation doe help se the scene because what happens later on in the film is unexpected as you wouldn’t think it was going to happen at the beginning of the film.
The costumes that are worn represent a true and authentic representation of the time period. This film was created in2007 which means that the costumes which are worn will have slightly change from what people are now wearing. They also fit into the genre and its concept. This is done by the ‘killer’ wearing black shoes, black tops, black trousers and a black balaclava. This is a typical outfit that is commonly used in horror and action film and drama.
Once the audience has seen the first two minutes of this film I think that they would feel like they would be left on a cliff-hanger. Also in the first two minutes I think that the scene hasbeen set very well as you have already seen images of the car park and the ‘hallway’ which is what they film is called. The sense of enigma (intrigue – need to watch more) has been achieved in the first two minutes as you the audience are not given the full storyline. They have also used the music tocreate tension which then also leaves people thinking why is it called the ‘hallway’, what is going to happen etc.
Sounds like: cars driving on a road, dun-dun music (tension), footsteps, tension building music, rattling of keys, engine starting, breaking glass, car engines, turning offan engine, opening of a car door, spooky ghost music, clicking of the neck, tension building music finishes when she closes the door of her flat and/or apartment.All of the above types of sounds have been used separately to create and link with other things in the film.
Car noises: Cars driving on a road, starting of an engine, a runningengine, turning off of a engine, and the closing of a car door allrepresent and link to the car that you see driving in and out og the car park.
Dun-Dun music: This is included to create tension which then makes theaudience feel suspicious. This also helps to create the enigmawhich then will make the audience hopefully want to watch the rest of the film.
Spooky Ghost music:This is included to create a scary sound which also sound like people are trying to talk when in fact they cannot.
Breathing:This is included to show that there is actually someone theirwho is watching her. This also makes the audience feel like it is them breathing loud as the could be scared.
Phone ringing: This is included to make the audience think that the personringing is a family member but they wouldn’t be expecting it tobe from someone who is going to kill their boyfriend, fiancé or husband.
Chase music: This is included to make add tension and makes you feel likeshe has no time to open the door as he is going to catch her. Italso helps to create pace and tension which has been building up.
Clicking of his neck:This is included to make show that he is ready for anything but must importantly ready to catch her and kill her.
Jessica’s heavy breathing:This is included to make show that she is panicking and just wants to get inside her flat and/or apartment as fast as shecan. Again this increases the pace and tension that has been building throughout the film.
Finishing of the tension building music: This music finishes when Jessica closes the door to her flatand/or apartment. This could also say that she has saved and has not been caught by Brandon the ‘killer’.
The points above support the storyline, shots and the lightingin many different ways. The music helps the storyline because when Jessica walks into the ‘hallway’ there is more tensionbuilding music than anywhere else in the film. This could meana number of different things: this is where the action is going to happen and/or has happened, or by having more sound theaudience will get confused and are left trying to work out what is happening. But by the time they do the thing they were trying to work out has already happened
