Another effect that has helped to increase the immersion of audiences have been the use of practical effects. According to an article published by Stephanie Pappas, a senior writer for LiveScience, Clement told LiveScience that “people really like the tangibility of practical effects.” Including with its use of makeup for many characters, practical effects have also helped to cause the immersion of many audiences to horror movies by giving them more realistic sounds such as the gunshot wounds or the collective audience gazing at a mummy’s evil laugh.

This can take place in a scientific model of observation, hypothesis formation, testing the hypothesis, and confrontation. However, it could potentially take place in any particular expression of curiosity (e.g. surrealist, playful, theological or paranoiac), in any (sub/counter)culture, indeed multiple curiosities should be possible all at once. This explains Pulse a bit like the graduate student: the (scary) problem is mysterious, so we (audience/some narrative force) can and will investigate in order to deal with “the problem”, and satisfy our desire to know.

In recent decades, many have argued that the line between realism and fiction in cinematic endeavours has become increasingly blurred. It has not been until recently that the world has truly been exposed to this completely innovative cinematic style, which has captivated audiences with its new approach to filmmaking. This new cinematic style was first introduced in Eduardo Sánchez and Daniel Myrick’s The Blair Witch Project. Here I will focus on breaking down the various levels of realism within The Blair Witch Project, in order to convey why it had such a monumental impact on the cinematic world, while still remaining a popular and modern horror film to today’s audiences.

The ideas and theory behind this slasher sub-genre of horror films can be summed up in a book.
