Towards the end of the era we see excessive blood and gore, victims, violence and sadism and finally torture, Saw (2004) and Hostel (2002).
As I have already mentioned Jaws is an important movie because it was the first real blockbuster, grossing $450 million. A common discussion is whether Jaws is a horror or thriller, I am going to analyse the two scenes to help us decide. The film starts under water with a shark’s point of view of the ocean. Only the audience don’t know it’s a shark, the music…
associated with any kind of hunt
and although the audience doesn't yet know that the shark is after the
girl the horn adds to the overall nervousness of the atmosphere. As
screeching, slashing violins can be heard the bold, glaring title Jaws
appears in capital letters signalling the ultimate climax of the
tension. Just when the audience can't take…
storyline expectations, it may be contrasted with the unknown, curiosity or surprise.
Two films, in which shock is used to entice, thrill and surprise audiences are Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960’s thriller Psycho, and Steven Spielberg’s 1975 blockbuster hit Jaws. In both films audiences experience suspense and shock when they expect something bad to happen and have (or believe they have) a superior perspective on events in the films’ hierarchy of knowledge, yet they are…
about eighty shots. This effect has made this scene a very famous one
because of the way it creates tension and frightens the audience.
In the film ‘Jaws’, the vast ocean is the unsafe space with the shark
moving around it. The use of safe and unsafe space helps create and
build up tension. At the beginning of the film ‘Jaws’, the shark’s
attacks are close by to the shore, which shows us that the shallow
water cannot stop it from attacking people. But as the film persists…
Whether it is the fining for fin soup or the desire to have a large shark jaw, sharks are being killed at alarming rates.
Some people experience the scarier side of sharks, but throughout history it is a proven fact that beside four species of sharks; tiger, bull, oceanic white tip, and great white sharks, they are not killing machines. Their species however has been preyed upon for many years. The fear that is instilled within people shows up as the killing of millions of sharks to overcompensate…
Down at the docks someone does manage I to reel in an impressive sized tiger shark. While everyone is giving out pats on the back Hooper is the one that finds out that the wrong shark has been caught. He states that while this species has attacked humans and is foreign to these waters the bite radius doesn’t match up to the first victim.
Being an outsider no one is inclined to listen to Hooper. To proven his point Hooper and Brody sneak down to the docks to cut open the shark. Among many…
The scene looks so innocent, but we then see a high angle
shot of the teenagers who are unaware of the threat nearby. We then
see a wide shot of the sea and can hear the noise of the waves
crashing against the shore. Then above the calm noise of the sea we
hear the load cry of a buoy with its bell ringing. The bell is a
warning sound and gives us the impression that something bad is going
to happen. We also know that the girl will be part of the attack for a
appear a hero, a ray of hope in the dark. As he begins mercilessly
killing Germanians the director manipulates the audience into
condoning the slaughter, and what is more, willing him to kill further
lending credibility to his role.
In Jaws, the shot opens on the beach with the campfire at night. It's
a familiar setting; the teenagers are all stereotypically middle class
'college kids', very warm and relaxed. The director designed the scene
to provoke a recognizable combination…
weeds with force and determination. The music gradually increases and
a brass instrument plays over the deep cello. At the end of this
sequence a screech is heard tearing our ears, which reminds us the
fate of helpless people caught in the jaws of misfortune.
Instinctively we are made to remember this music. Spielberg
intelligently makes us see the point of view of the predator. By not
seeing the shark, suspense is created leaving our imagination to
wonder. The music provides…
The waves give off a really eerie effect, the whole scene just seems to bee too calm.
The next scene is off the girl swimming, but there is no music playing at all, and makes the atmosphere feel eerie. You wonder what is going to happen next. Also the girl is totally naked at this time, which makes her seem very vulnerable, as there is nothing between her and the shark, except water. She is also away from the party, which makes her seem unsafe.
The camera then starts to switch from…
Then we see an under water shot of the girl in the water
which makes you think something is present in the water (shark). Music
starts to play and we know that something is going to happen which
creates more tension and suspense.
The camera switches from top to below the girl building tension from
making you think is it going to strike. Then the camera starts to zoom
in at the shark’s point of view, as the music gets faster creating
fear because we know that the shark…
It has the killing
effect and after the music it stays in your head until the next scene
as you don't want it to be played again.
The boat scene is very different to the shower scene, but they both
build up a lot of tension. The Jaws boat scene builds up its tension
by focusing around the boat and the men. The audience will feel a bit
jumpy as they don't expect the shark coming, but the tension created
has to end, it is the tension that makes you scared.
The opening of the film is from the shark point of view, underwater, the scene is errie. John Williams distinctive music playing leaves the audience tense, especially because they can’t see the creature. We cut to the camp fire scene which introduces our first convention, the weak female teenager. A young girl, Chrissie Watkins and Tom Cassidy leave the safety of a camp fire to go swimming in the middle of the night. We are moved from a warm, safe elemental scene to the cold, dangerous and open…
However it also shows tension as during the silence
the audience do not know if another attack is going to happen.
The second attack is on a small boy in the sea at a crowded beach on
Amity Island. It starts with the young boy asking his mother if he can
go back into the sea. We then see Brody sat on the beach watching out
for sharks. The camera does a long shot of Brody’s point of view,
which we see a woman screaming. This makes us think that the girl is
For instance, whenever an attack occurs,
the music ends up being extremely fast, then slowing considerably and
then stopping altogether resulting in complete silence. This silence
after each attack frightens the audience because they realise how
quickly something awful, like the event they have just witnessed, can
happen and how quickly it can end. It also reminds them that the shark
is still out there and will continue to carry out these attacks. In
addition, before the…
director shows you the shark’s point of view through his eyes looking
at the boy’s feet which he had noticed splashing under the water, as
soon as the shark noticed he made his way hastily in a flash to wards
it. Then straight away before the shark gets to the boy’s feet the
camera changes as it shows the boy relaxed swimming on the craft.
unexpectedly the camera changes again as it shows the sharks point of
view again as the shark is right next to the boys feet.…
A couple of
minutes after he gets in the water the shark attack the boy leaving
nothing behind except for blood and a shredded yellow lilo. Brody was
sitting on the beach next to his wife looking at the sea with the
knowledge that he is putting people's lives in danger. The camera
concentrated on Brody's nervous face by using close-up shot's of his
face as well as using mid angle shot to show how his arms are moving
from fear. Through out the scene, people came up to him…
The first sound that the audience observe is the dog running and
jumping into the sea. Its barking and the owner’s commands are heard
continually. The dog is therefore revealed to the audience as holding
some importance in the scene. The sounds of joyful laughter,
light-hearted speech and the radio playing soothing music in the
background is sustained throughout the scene to demonstrate safety and
an illusion of enjoyment. The audience contemplate on the boy asking
After the attack and the disturbing music the ‘dead’
silence came. This is to highlight the fact that the girl has been
killed in a very brutal and painful way and that nobody could help
her, even if they wanted to. It also tells the audience that the shark
is creepy, awful and unstoppable. This shark characterisation helped
the director to build tension more effectively before the future
Just like silence, music can also be used to scare the audience. An…
decides to go for a swim. We get a shot from underneath the water with
mysterious music lasting around ten seconds when the musical cue for
the shark cuts in. The point of view shot works really well with the
music, as we do not yet know what is in the water. The director keeps
us, the viewers; unaware of what is actually the culprit of these
revolting attack. As the film progresses we learn to associate the
music with an imminent shark attack.
The music clouds your vision and makes you imagine and believe
something that actually isn’t even there. It builds tension and the
music gives a dramatic and eerie effect. Other example of how music of
silence is used to scare the audience or build tension will be
The first scene, Chrissie strips to go swimming in the sea, the man
from the same camp – where music is playing and the atmosphere is
happy and relaxed – is chasing her towards the beach. The…
Music is used throughout the film effectively and
is often used a lot during an attack. In the 4th July attack the music
playing on the radio behind is an uplifting and enjoyable music which
gives the audience a false sense of security and also acts as a
contrast to the sharks theme.
During the second attack camera angles are used to build tension and
are also used to help the audience create and emotional attachment
with the victims. While the boy is walking up the…

One thing that frightens people the most is a Pit Bulls jaw. While they do have one of the strongest jaws, it is not the strongest. Dr. I. Lerh Brisbin, of the University of Georgia, states,

races of man’ by
John Beddoe, Beddoe argued that there was a difference both physically
and intellectually between those in Britain with protruding jaws and
those with less prominent jaws. The Irish, Welsh and the lower classes
were among those with protruding jaws, he argued, whereas all men of
genius has less prominent jaws.
This human misjudgement of character through appearance is not
the how jaw muscles attach to the head and leave little room for the brain, and this crest is close to non-existent in human heads for smaller, less powerful jaws. By having smaller muscles there are smaller anchors attached to the head and the skull is free to grow into a round shape. It is thus suspected that powerful jaws are incompatible with large powerful brains (Hopkin).
The more interesting point about the mutated gene, to help further idea that the big brain and powerful jaw are dissonant…

How Jaws devoured its way to being Hollywood's first summer
Over the years the villain has had to move with the times, but there
was one villain created that made history for he not only devoured his
way, sweeping away other villains that were ruling over the box
office, but paved the term "summer movie blockbuster". That villain
would be Jaws. Back in 1975 Jaws was a phenomenon upon release, but it
A threaded conical-shaped tool is used to open the jaw from the first two teeth since rigor mortis makes the process virtually impossible otherwise. This will break the rigor mortis. Other methods include cutting the facial muscles to open and release. Then, the dentition examination can begin. In some circumstances the jaws will be removed and examined by autopsy assistants. Incisions in the side of the mouth are made to remove the jaw. During the examination process dentists will record…

Private Ryan has been credited as being the most accurate war recreation film in history. It is the winner of five Academy Awards including Best Director for Steven Spielberg. Like Jaws, the opening scene has perfect equilibrium, calm at both the beginning and the end. Another thing this opening scene has in common with Jaws is the under water camera, and there are also shots from the killer’s point of view – in this case, the shooters’. In addition to this, they both end with calm water; a common theme…
This concept causes the reader to assume she has given up and is powerless; that this dark is completely evil, and damaging her. A victim, she lies in what she believes will not cease. For every second of her father's brutal anger she "feels his jaws rasp on the naked bone." Another auditory image, this is an incredibly harsh sound that evokes disturbing violence, a vicious sense of him biting and cutting into her. Furthermore, the girl "feels" pain to his anger, right to her "naked bone" or…

Raptors were small theropods with specialized features, such as a well-developed slashing claw on their toe, a stiffened tail that probably assisted in balancing, and large “hands.” They also had claws, agile bodies and muscular, toothy jaws. Based on discoveries and their physical structures, Raptors are assumed to have been active, fierce predators, and also play key roles in the revolution of modern paleontologists’ views of dinosaurs (Dino Buzz, 2005).

more frightening and influential than that of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. Each a product of horror’s 1970’s and 80’s golden era, the films have a reputation of engulfing viewers in fear, without the use of masked killers, vampires, or other clichés. Instead, Kubrick and Spielberg take a different approach and scare audiences on a psychological level.

the ending of the film. I was shocked and somewhat happy to see Merteuil finally get what she deserved. The jaw dropper for me was when she fell while leaving the opera it symbolized her reputation falling too. Everyone use to look up to Merteuil and she would control them like puppets and now the roles have been turned. For me the ending of the movie was a lot more satisfying and jaw dropping. Merteuil tried everything in her power to win the game of revenge and it back fired on her.
