  • Black and dark blue tones of lighting.
  • Raining and flashes of lightning.
  • Verisimilitude- uniform and props of scientific objects.
  • Establishing shot sets genre. Low angle. Shadows
  • High angle of security guard walking- makes him look vulnerable.
  • Extereme close up on eyes- show emotion.
  • Serif font titles- typically seen in horror films, as if dripping blood.
  • Slow motion looking into the bag, adds suspense.
  • In a dark place alone- following conventional story line as if something scary is about to suddenly happen.
  • There is a phone present- representing a life line.
  • Femme fatale- costume signifies danger. Black PVC dress- tight fitting. Blonde hair, very 'made-up' and very tall heels.
  • POV shots- feeling of being watched.
  • Religious imagery- good v evil. Set in a church.
We liked the range of shots used in this opening, felt we would relate the idea of variaition of shots into our coursework, such as Point of view, high and low angle to emphasize the idea of vulnerability and something, someone, being daunting.
