HORROR!,[object Object],D.I.S.T.I.N.C.T,[object Object],Georgina,[object Object],Webster,[object Object]
Settings.,[object Object],The setting/location of a horror film is what makes the movie scary. The atmosphere must make the audience feel on edge and it builds the tension. A lot of the locations are abandoned and isolated places.,[object Object],Some common settings are haunted houses, farms, fair grounds, the circus, the sea, graveyards, basements, dungeons, attics etc. ,[object Object],Horror films which are meant to be more disturbing use contrapuntal settings such as a children’s playground, a fair, a nursery etc. This is because ‘innocence’ can often be played with in horror and actually become very scary.,[object Object]
Technical Codes,[object Object],To make the scene disorientating and uncomfortable canted camera angles are often used. Also, high and low angles are used so that we can see different perspectives. In the horror film ‘Halloween’ at the beginning of the film the camera uses the ‘point of view’ shot so that we can see through the antagonist’s eyes. This was effective because we could feel the tension as he went towards his victim. Editing such as jump cuts can often be used in horror films and these are very effective as well.,[object Object],Sound is one of the most important parts of editing in a horror film. The music has to make the audience feel uncomfortable and uneasy. Sometimes it works to have music opposite to the scene such as a scary scene with children singing. Opposites often work well. Also the music can change speed and dynamics to fit with the scene.,[object Object]
Iconography,[object Object],The iconic colours of horror are red and black. Red because it is associated with the devil, blood and also danger. Black because it’s generally dark and evil. ,[object Object],Lighting is very important in horror films and low key lighting is often used so that it’s hard to see what is going on and what is about to happen. This creates tension.,[object Object],Iconic props would be axes, knives, guns, chainsaws, masks and costumes.,[object Object]
Narrative Structure,[object Object],The normal structure of a horror would be a beginning, middle and end, however the end could vary from film to film. Some horrors would end on a cliff-hanger to scare the audience more. Some horrors would have a solution in the ending. ,[object Object],There is usually a protagonist and an antagonist in horror films so that the audience can empathise with characters and have opinions on them.,[object Object],There is often a ‘last girl standing’ in horror films as well.,[object Object]
Character Types,[object Object],In horrors there is often a protagonist, either the hero of the main victim/victims that we empathise with throughout the film. ,[object Object],Other character types would include the final girl, the antagonist, stupid or immoral teens etc.,[object Object],Some main types of ‘bad guys’ would be ghosts, villains, monsters, demons, spirits, madmen, psychopaths, stalkers, werewolves and serial killers.,[object Object]
