• This film is based in Germany.• Equilibrium: The film starts with an associate

– Hutter who has to go to the counts house to sell him a home

• It starts with an associate – Hutter who has to go to the counts house to sell him a home.

• Disequilibrium: After arriving at his house he manages to sell the count his house.

• However, he notices that a shadow seems to be following him

• He eventually sees the count asleep in his crypt.

• He traps Hutter in the house.• The count hiding in a shipment of coffins

makes his way to Wisbourg- he causes death along the way and is the main reason for the plague.

• Hutter rushes home to save his wife Ellen from Nosferatu.

• As Nosferatu gets closer Ellen can feel the impending darkness getting closer to her.

• She realises that she could sacrifice herself to kill the vampire.

• There is no new equilibrium as the film end on an enigma code. This would be appealing to the target audience as leaves them to infer what could have happened. This makes it entertaining which demonstrates uses and gratification theory.

• Also this film abides by the 8 stock characters theory as there is a ‘villain’ which is Dracula, ‘victim’ who is Hutter and Ellen. This would have appealed to the mass audience of the time as the stereotypical characters mean that the audience can easily establish who they should identify with. This demonstrates

uses and gratification theory. Also 8 stock character theory is conventional to the horror genre.

• Moreover the use of the ‘vampire’ being the villain is a common convention of horror films.

Cast:Nosferatu: Max Schreck

Ellen Hutter: Greta Schroder

Annie: Ruth Landshoff

Hutter: Gustav von Wangenheim.

Alexander Granach: knock

Themes evident: Love: this is the love that Hutter has for Ellen.

Death: Nosferatu kills all those inocent people.

This shows binary oppositions as its evil vs. good.

There is only ambient sound in the film with the accompaniment of occasional stings. The ambient music is instrumental and gets faster pace when they are trying to build up tension in a scene.

Colour: Black and White – this would appeal to the audience as the dark black and whit e lighting makes it more scary as it accentuates the shadows which makes it scarier for the audience. This expressive lighting needed to be used as there Is no sound.

The character s in nosferatu wore normal clothes – this added versimilartude to the story.

Due to the time of this film the technology wasn’t advanced so the camera jump cuts between shots.

• Due to Nosferatu conforming to the 8 stock character theory This means that the narrative structure is very linear and makes it easier for the audience of the time to identify the good and bad characters.

• Also as the film has a clear binary opposition- Good vs. evil (Hutter vs. Count). This would again make it easier for the audience of the time to identify the characters .

• The film has proved popular with new audiences as it is a ‘classic horror’ as it is one of the first horrors ever made.

1920’s: Nosferatu (1922)

1920’s: The phantom of the opera (1925Production information:

Plot outline: Characters in the film:

Writer:Gaston Leroux

Production companies:Universal pictures

Run time:93 minuits

Certificate: unrated

Released: 15 November 1925

• The phantom threatens Carlotta (the lead soprano) to give up her role and give it to Christine Daae.

• The phantom is in love with christine but she is in love with ‘Raoul de Chagny’ 

• There is a clear equilibrium where Carlotta has the lead role at the beginning and is happy.

• Then the disequilibrium occurs when the phantom forces her to give up her role and the phantom finds out the Christine is in love with someone else.

• Then there is equilibrium again when raoul de chagny tries to rescue chrstine after the phantom traps her.

The Phantom: Lon Chaney

Christina Daae: Mary Philbin.

Vicomte Raul de Chagny: Norman Kerry

• This film abides by 8 stock characters theory as there is an identifyable villain – the phantom, there is a victim – Christine and the hero ‘Raoul de chagny’.

• Using 8 stock characters is a common convention of the horror genre.

• There is also binary oppositions between the phantom (evil) vs good (Raoul de chagny, carlotta and christine)

Colour: Black and White

Sound mix:Mono (Talking sequences , musical score and sound effects) (1929 release was silent)There is ambient sound in the film. This is again instrumental as they didn’t have advanced enough technology for computer generated sound.

The film is again filmed in black and white. This is due to the technology not being advanced enough for colour shots.However this helps to make the audience more ‘scared’ as the black and whit makes it more mysterious. It also makes the shadows stand out more and make the characters look more sinister. This would have entertained the audience. This demonstrates uses and gratification theory.The characters are wearing relatively normal clothing – this is to add verisimilitude to the narrative.The camera often jump cuts to the next shot. This is due to the technology of the time not permitting more complicated transitions (e.g. dissolve).

As this film has a linear structure it is easy for the audience of the time to follow the narrative of the phantom.The film contains elements of romance – the phantom loves christine. This ideology would be familiar for the 1920’s audience that would have watched it. This would make it ‘identifyable’ to the audience. This demonstrates uses and gratification theory.

Sound mix: monoThe only sound is the sound in the diagesis. There is speech and the sound coming from the machinery itself.Colour: Black and whiteBlack and whit is a common convention of the horror genre. This is also due to the fact that the technology hadnt advanced enough yet.

The camera jump cuts between the shots.

The costumes of the characters are fairly normal. This is as it has versimilatude. This also means that the audience can identfy with the characters. This demonstrates uses and gratification theory.

• This appeal to the audience of the time as it is one of the first films to have speech sound. This would have made it clearer for the audience to understand what is going on instead of having to interpret like in previous films.

• This would also have been quite ‘revolutionary’ for the audience of the time therefore making it appeal to a mass audience as many would have wanted to see it. this would have made the film very succesful.

• This also means that this film remaions popular to modern audiences as the speech means that we can now understand the nararative and is a ‘classic’ horror movie of which has been remade many times.

Certificate:PG.

• Renfield arrives at Draculas castel – Dracula turns him into one of his thralls

• Van Helsing has an clue that Dracula is indeed a vampire and tries to prove that he is after Dracula kills a young girl.

• The film abides by todorovs equilibrium theory.

• Equilibrium: Renfield arrives at Draculas castel thinking that everything’s ok

• Disequilibrium: Renfield is turned into one of his thralls. Dracula kills a young girl.

• Equiilibrium: Van helsing tries to save the girl.

Count Dracula: Bela lugosi

Mina: Helen Chandler

John Harker: David Manners.

Renfield: Dwight Frye

The film abides by 8 stock character theory.There is a villain – Dracula.Victim: Renfield/ young girlHero – Van Helsing.

8 stock characters theory is a common convention of the horror genre.

Sound: Mono (western electric sound system)

Colour: Black and white. This is a common convention of horror. This type of expressive lighting is used as technology doesn’t permit coloured shots but it does create more of a sinister atmosphere as the shadows cast on the characters.

The costumes of the characters are normal except for the count who wears a cape to connote to the audience that he is a ‘vampire’ and the ‘villain’. The cape is stereotypical clothing that a ‘vampire’ would wear. Thus meaning It is conventional to the genre.

This film appeals to the target audience of the time due to the way in which the narrative has been constructed. Due to the protagonist and villain of the film is a vampire- this is quite a popular convention of horror genre. This is as vampires being featured previously in films such as Nosferatu. This is intertextual to that film.

Also, as the previous vampire film –Nosferatu was completely silent this film has a unique selling point as it has speech.

This would appeal to a modern audience as many modern day adaptions have been made. This includes films such as ‘Dracula 3D’ made in 2012. This means that the narrative in these Modern Dracula films is inter-textual to the first one ever made. This targets a mass target audience who want to see the ‘original’ film.

Colour: Black and White.

The shots are still in Black and white.However, this is a common convention of classic horror films as it allows the expressive light to help to build up tension. This is It can cast shadows – this makes the set look more sinister.

The sets that they use look normal and have versimilartude. This would have been fairly low budget as film companies were not as financially equipt as they are now in modern day.

The lighting is mostly natural with hardly any use of artifical. This again would be fairly low budget.

This appeals to an audience of the time as this was the first film where characters from different films come together. This concept would have been intriguing to the audience of the time. This would have entertained them. This demonstrates uses and gratification theory.

Also, If there where fans of frankenstein or dracula they would also watch the film. This means that the film targets a mass audience – making it more succesful. Dyer starr theory can be applied here as some people may only watching it for frankenstein or Dracula.

Also, this film would be appealing to a modern target audience as it is almost comparable to the modern film ‘Avengerrs’ which has the same concept of more than one movie character in the same movie. therefore, fans of Avengers may want to see one of the first films made this way,

The sets themeselves are quite normal and have verisimilitude. This means that the production company would not have to pay for a film set to be specially made. This makes the film lower budget will is fitting to the time the film was made. This is as production companies not being as high budget as todays.

This appeals to the audience as it contains elements of the supernatural (alien). This is a common horror convention. This would have made it appeal to the audience as the audience would find it entertaining and would find it an escapism. This represents uses and gratification theory

There are more smooth transitions from shot to shot.This is a progression from the abrupt jump cut previously used.This is due to an advance in technology which allowed there to be these kinds of transitions.

The budget was higher for this film as it is set in space so special sets would have to be made and the creation of the alien in the narrative would have to be produced.

This would appeal to the audience as it shows a clear advance in technology from previously.This is due to the transitions becoming more smooth and there being a higher production value. this would be there unique selling point.This would make it appeal to a mass target audience. Therefore be a successful film.
