Tyler Perry’s The family that preys This is a good family movie that can show the viewer’s how some people prey on one another. This movie reminded me of the times my brother and I didn’t get along. It shows how different families are and how they treat one another. Sadly this movie also shows how family members can be so cold blooded. This movie duplicates real life situations where innocent People get hurt, family loyalty gets divided and couples end up in divorce.
Another brilliant use of cinematography is the dialogue in this movie and the way the actors portray the characters. Everything they say is said in a dull tone. Most
the film shows how great it really is, and makes it an even more enjoyable
Firstly, relating to one of Sigmund Freud’s “Key elements of horror fiction” this film creates an atmosphere that arouses a strong emotional response in the viewer. It does this by causing us to wonder if all of the characters are simply crazy in their own ways, or if this creepy old house contains more than meets the eye. We begin to feel horribly uncomfortable at how angry Grace becomes with her daughter, and slightly creeped out by what’s going through Anne’s head when it comes to her ghost stories. Secondly, this story features the theory that the mind finds pleasure in any kind of stimulation including fear, and we like to feel outside of our element. This film gave us the creeps and made us feel threatened and slightly uncomfortable. It also had a few jump scare moments causing our minds to become stimulated with fear. These theories relate to the article “Scared Witless-The Psychology of Fear”. This movie gives the viewer a lot of anticipation, giving us an odd sense of cerebral pleasure. Sigmund Freud defined horror as “a fascinated dread in the presence of immortal material”. Fascinated is to be irresistibly drawn to something. Dread is to anticipate something with great fear. Immaterial is something that does not consist of matter. We the viewers, were irresistibly drawn to find out if Anne’s stories were true. We were constantly filled with fearful anticipation waiting for the
In the essay, "Why We Crave Horror Movies" by Stephen King the author tries to prove that the modern day horror movie is are relief of violence, are fix of adrenaline and fun, and also something that can dare the nightmare. In a lot of ways these things can be
Genre Analysis By Aleksandar Najdovski Genre is a French word meaning ‘type or ‘kind’ (Genre, 2016). The film industry has been around for at least 100 years. The evolution of entertainment is growing rapidly through the use of media. And as these years go on, films have begun to fit into specific genres, and are important to appeal to the different types of audiences. Films can be described to genre in different types of ways, such as stars, director and narrative to help identify what genre the film is (Neale, 1990, pg. 49). Genre in films has become common because it helps give the audience a different expectation. One specific genre of film is a horror. Horror is a genre that tries to create, panic, dread and fear for the audience.
I really enjoyed this film because it all takes place nearly in one location. The set is elaborate, and you can see from the inside of Jeff’s apartment into the windows of his neighbors. It is filmed in such a way that you feel as though you are looking out of a window, and you become a part of the chaos with the actors. The pace of the film also intrigued me. I enjoyed how it was filmed almost in real time and you become drawn in because everything is timed perfectly. It is suspenseful because you are watching everything happen and it is also possible to notice things in the
The sounds and music in this film are very realistic, and to the point. There is not anything abstract or out of place, and everything is very appropriate. The
I think it’s filmed well not too many transitions in the film or weird shots from below. Sound effects are normal nothing spectacular or anything that truly stands out. There is little to no music in this movie at all and when there is it’s the same sound and musical noise over and over again which I can stand to you is easily my least favorite part of this film. All the sounds and cinematography put together in this film make for a truly stunning movie that really brings out the feel and time of the movie itself.
Overall, I enjoyed the film. My biggest issue was the formatting of the film and the medium that it was available. It would have been more enjoyable had the film not been broken up into segments that needed to load. Had the movie been available on DVD or in one longer segment, it would have been easier to watch. The continuous breaks in the action of
So, first example is the tone of the movie. The tone is very frightening. In the beginning of the movie there were two kids, Alan and Sarah. Well Alan found the board game, and asked Sarah if she wanted to play it with him. She said yes. So he took it out, and read the instructions. Well, they didn’t take the instructions very seriously and played it anyway. So, Alan found some dice and you were supposedly supposed to roll them. well Alan rolled a dice, and out of nowhere, he got sucked up into the board game. Sarah was freaked out, she thought that he was gone forever. Everyone was looking for him. Soon enough, people thought that he was dead. And well, that was one very scary event that happened.
This isn't just another family road trip comedy as I thought it would be. This was a dark and quirky comedy at its best. The script and acting was brilliant, the characters were unusual and the ending was eventful and unpredictable. The grandpa said a lot of things that were probably inappropriate for younger watchers, and he used drugs, but they he ended up dying, which is a positive anti-drug message. Overall a beautiful movie, but parents need to be careful about showing even the edited version for
Another critical element is the music, music is used to create a focused feeling for the audience. The Music was also creating a dark tone within the film. It seemed brooding moving slowly, then went higher to create an ambience of tension.
