Kristen Wolbrink ARLT 101g 9/19/05 Journal 3- Should a Monster Speak? In many horror films, the monster does speak and in other horror films, the monster does not speak or only makes grunts and noises such as in the film of Frankenstein. Often, if the monster does speak, it is differentiated from the other characters in the film or novel, sometimes being a different language or a heavy accent. Another contrast of speaking is in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde where Mr. Hyde can speak but only speaks when necessary, in which not speaking much at all. I believe that more fear is created when the monster doesn’t speak in “monster” films when the monster is not human very different than the typically person. The monster in the film of Frankenstein stumbles around grunting and never actually speaks. When the monster doesn’t speak, you feel more distant between yourself and the monster. This creates a fear of something unknown and unordinary to the viewer. The viewer feels more of a connection to those who do speak and this creates sympathy towards the monster
