    or reliably, that might make you want to include them in your film. (It 's worth noting that these moments are used outside of horror films, too. There is a famous one in the beginning of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), when Bilbo Baggins is presented with the One Ring. This scene is widely recognized as a "scary" moment in a non-horror film, and is hardly ever critically derided, despite being a completely textbook, by-the-numbers "jump scare" - complete with an almost

    I owe my ever-deepening interest in J. R. R. Tolkien’s work to a single cinematic shot in Peter Jackson’s The Fellowship of the Ring. The Moria orcs are fleeing a sinister presence, and the fellowship stands stock still in fear. In the midst of this uncertainty the camera slowly focuses in on the fellowship standing together, as the light of Gandalf’s staff illuminates the sheer emptiness left behind the orcs. And just as the silence reaches its highest point, the staff’s light shines on the stark

    SUMMARY #1 (pg. 1-45) Although my novel, The Fellowship of the Ring, has just begun, a lot of events have already taken place.

In Bilbo’s home of the Shire, he announces that he will be inviting many guests to his 111th birthday. (Hobbits live much longer than humans). However, after being visited by Gandalf
