Horror Films: The Haunted Castle by George Melies

- ... According to a study by Andrew J. Elliot and Henk Aarts, when a test subject is shown the color red, “the person is instilled with a feeling of threat, fear, and danger, a phenomenon similar to a wild animal behavior where red may be seen as a threat, inducing a rapid preparation for defense or flight” (“Perception of the color red”). And in The Shining, Kubrick uses red in crucial scenes to cause tension in the viewer’s mind and to foreshadow death in the Overlook Hotel. Similarly to The Shining’s use of red, Jaws also uses a “danger” color to scare viewers....   [tags: film analysis, the shining and jaws]

How Does Meursault Become an Existentialist Hero?

- Meursault is the protagonist and narrator in Albert Camus' The Outsider, and at first notice, he is seen to be someone who is rather 'colourless', emitting a very boring and uninteresting aura. It is during his time spent in prison (convicted of a murder which wasn't cold-blooded, but rather one that was due to a chain of events) that he becomes an existentialist hero. Right from the start of the novel, Meursault is introduced to the reader as a person that is distant. For one, he doesn't even know the day his own mother died[1]....   [tags: Literature Review ]

Relational Turbulence Between The Wife And Husband

Relational turbulence is when people react to an interpersonal situation that ordinarily would not be significant; due to difficult times in the relationship, changes in behavior are more noticeable (Katz, 2015).
