Assignment 9: Individual ResearchBy Michael Ivan

Youre Next(Home Invasion)I watched the trailer and a few clips from Your Next

Here is a link to the trailerhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez0YcXsWL8I

Things that I noticed:It is evident that all the attackers have masks on to conceal their identity.Settings are often isolated and far away from society. Realistic blood to convey that the film is going to be gory/scary. Victims seemed to be trapped and cornered in one area, which connotes that they have no escape.

Buried (Phobia and Isolation)

I watched the trailer and clips from BuriedHere is a link to the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRQ0oqFBoP4

Things I noticed: No real setting, just focused on one place, emphasising the fact of isolation. Only focused on one person throughout the whole trailer, the male protagonist, showing he is alone and has no help, which creates tension. Mise en scene such as blood, help reinforce that he is in trouble and needs help. Its a race against time, therefore they show the watch constantly.

Things I noticed: The theme of running away is very evident, they do this in order to survive and leaves an enigmatic to the audience if they will survive or not. The main male protagonist has a costume that looks like he just came out of hospital. The streets are abandoned as no one is on the streets.
