  1. 1. Film trailer analysis By Jake and Craig

  3. 3. Iconography The full moon on a mist night, this has been a horror icon since Dracula novels. Another icon is when she hears a noise and opens a curtain, which slightly resembles ‘Psycho’, but there is nothing there. While a shadow of a axe raises above her head. The elderly man who says “you’re doomed, you’re all doomed” to a group of teenagers. Which is now cliché in horror films. The idea that if you have sex you will die, this is also in most horror films.
  4. 4. <ul><li>Tone cards- the trailer is set out show 13 different situations from the film. Complementing the fact that each one is completely different, they have tone cards showing ‘1-Friday the 13 th’ , the numbers in the tone cards approach the screen in different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Sound- with every tone card there is a high pitched screeched giving each one an edge. After every tone card the music builds up again, making a new equilibrium, only for it to be disturbed (13 times). This makes the trailer post-modern, because it plays around with the Todorov’s theory of narrative. </li></ul><ul><li>Camera angles- in some scenes they show life in his point of view, which slips you inside the head of the murder. </li></ul>Trailer structure …

  6. 6. Feminism <ul><li>The film is written and directed by women and they created the character who is a strong demon woman who kills boys, or in the words of the film </li></ul><ul><li>“ you’re killing people” </li></ul><ul><li>“ No, I'm kill boys”. </li></ul><ul><li>Also the two female leads are not helping each other, they are fighting in a battle to the death, a role usually played by a man. </li></ul>Against feminism The film seems to be away for Megan Fox to flaunt her body; we see only two types of women, super-nerds or killer (Megan) Fox. It also seems to be her punishing men for liking women.
  7. 7. Male gaze <ul><li>The trailer shows Meg Fox in many scenarios a straight man would and do think of, swimming naked or kissing another woman. So the audience see her though the eyes of a heterosexual man and has to live in the world of a teenage boy. In the end when she asks her </li></ul>“ I thought you only killed boys” “ I go both ways” Which is an obvious reference to bisexuality
  8. 8. Comparison Fox Vs Jason <ul><li>Both film have the same attitude toward sex, despite one being feminist, and the main characters genders are different. </li></ul><ul><li>But Jennifer's Body contains comic aspects, but the other prides itself on just being about murder </li></ul><ul><li>Also both of the films have the same sort of setting. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally Friday the 13 th never shows the face of the killer creating a sense of mystery, while every question (except the questions about ‘why are you a vampire?’) are answered. </li></ul>
