What Lies Beneath
This is a supernatural thriller. At the beginning of the clip as the titles appear the clip has been edited so that we have a sense of being underwater also the words appear over the water and then slowly disappear creating tension. Non-Diagetic sound of screaming builds up before wee see anything making the audience question what is happening. The use of different camera techniques makes the audience feel tense , the sudden zoom of camera to the woman and the sudden stop of music makes us wonder what will happen next and feel anxious. Mise en scene used connotes what might happen. the white and grey dull colours are innocent but at the same time frightening.
