Character• The main character is female which follows the conventions of psychological thrillers.• The point of view shot of the character walking towards the bullies shows both the good and bad sides of people, which is also conventional for psychological thrillers.• The character wears a hood for most of the trailer which indicates mystery.
Narrative• The narrative shows that the character doesn’t fit in and is bullied because of it.• The final shot shows the character looking towards the camera possibly indicating that she wants revenge.
Iconography• It is difficult to pick out props that are iconic to a psychological thriller. Perhaps the hood, the book with tears on it, or the fading sheet of music.
Style• For the magazine cover the music in the background is faded out which gives the image of it being dead.• Also the main character is at the base of the magazine looking up which means she must be laying down. Her eyes have been darkened so you cannot see them this may be indicating that she is dead.
