Suspense 14/12/2010
Conventions of suspense
  • The audience know more than the characters on screen (dramatic irony)
  •  False Plateau - lulls audience into a false sense of security
  • A physical effect on the viewer (visceral effect)
  • Begins with a sense of normality then let the sinister element enter
  • Typically - Victim, heavy breathing, darkness, pauses, tense music.
