Based what you learned about theatrical genres, which genre would best fit this film (pleaserefer to chapter 4)?
-Horror films often overlap with the genres: fantasy, supernatural fiction, and thriller genres.Please discuss qualities you observed about the following (How do these qualities enhancethe film and help filmmakers achieve their goal? You may need to research the definitions ofthese concepts as they relate to film):-Music allows coordination along with the actions of the characters and puts moreintensity on certain moments throughout a movie, especially pop-ups in any scarymovie. It creates the mood or theme for a film.-Narration tells background information and tells the audience what the charactersmay not be expressing. It can also tell the time and place of where the story takesplace. The Nun and many other films have an introduction telling the backgroundstory before actually getting into the film.-Special Effects makes films look more realistic and bring characters to life. With theadvancement of technology, special effects have become more popular and moredetailed which allows them to be performed smoothly. These effects can creating orchanging backgrounds, scenes entirely of virtual shots, adding characters or creatures,adding or removing object's, speed changes, and removing any visible issues likewiring, microphones, and others. In The Nun, special effects had to be done in orderto make the film seem more realistic. Especially with horror movies I think specialeffects are so important because if the effects do not flow smoothly, it can ruin scenesand the overall movie.
