We are shown that this is a psychological thriller through the unseen characters obviously unstable mental stability which I also think is reflected by the music and the actual titles themselves. The music is slow, just like the characters actions, but it has a goal, it feels like he knows what he's doing therefore the movie feels dominating. The sound effects that have been used to accompany the revolting images has great potential of getting positive feedback from the audience in the sense that they have performed that thrilling feeling within the audience getting them into the right mind frame for the movie.
The font that is used I believe is sans serif, this gives the movie a relaxed look, but the way of 'dragging' that the letters have been presented, they are hardly readable which I suppose implies the significance in this first character being extremely unpredictable. My favorite thing about this opening sequence is the way the music, images and fonts just collide to make the perfect combination, where there isn't too much given away but the audience know what 'they're in for'.
