How does your media product represent
particular social groups?
!
Through the use of costumes, Angus was
portrayed as a middle class working man. His
white shirt and tie shows that he has a formal
day job in an office-based environment.
In some modern day horror films, office jobs
tend to become the basis for triggering a nerve
or difficult past memory and therefore showing
the audience a, new, side of a previously
introduced character.
Angus’ red tie is a key signifier in the horror genre and can therefore
become a symbol for the character.
!
!
For example, Jason Voorhees is now iconic for
wearing the ‘purge like’ mask in every one of
his horror films, allowing him to be easily
recognised as his character.
!
!
!
!
Our target audience was aimed at male’s aged 16-35. Which meant we
had to adapt Angus’ character to relate as closely as we could to our
audience. One edit of our film showed Angus stalking the males from his
past on social media, whom he now considered as his ‘enemies’. This clip
would have shown that Angus wasn’t as different as he made out and he
could relate to our audience more.
!
!
Finding common ground with the audience is key with the horror genre in
order for the film to have the greatest effect on its viewers, therefore, the
location of Angus’ house was important with the representation of class
and status.
We made sure that he didn’t live in a place that would
disconnect his relationship with our audience (e.g. an upper
class house) as the viewers may not be able to relate to his
lifestyle. This could have taken away from the overall
feeling of the sequence, as there would have been very
little/ no connection between the audience and the
characters.
!
In our sequence we conformed to the ideas of bullying. We showed that
bullying does have a severe impact on peoples lives and emphasised that
by taking the effects of longterm bulling to the extent we did, with Angus’
character. We also presented the stereotypes of women in a heterosexual
relationship, where the woman cooks the dinner and the man goes out to
work. However we do not believe that males are more dominant than
females, we gave both genders a fair sided part in the narrative. We
showed this through the argument between Angus and Scarlett where she
displays her ability to stand her ground against her partner.
!
Angus is shown to also have some stereotypical female traits as well as
male. His character isn’t a strong, masculine person but is in fact quite
frail because of his lack of mental stability. Scarlett portrays a tough
female character as she was able to control the situation with Angus
In horror films some males tend to be victimised which means they can
lose their sense of masculinity relating slightly to Angus’ character.
