Wicker Man - Opening Scene
This is an opening scene from the movie Wicker Man. The genre of this film is a horror but by watching the opening scene you wouldn't think it is a horror straight away because of the high key lightening used. An opening scene is used to engage the audience, showing them exciting segments of the film, which immediately strikes the audience attention.
The little girl is just sat there looking at him, not trying to escape and also she has no facial expression its just as if she is looking at something close up. She isn't looking scared or shocked which is what you wouldn't expect if this was to happen in real life. (1:03) which gets the audience thinking and asking themselves to think that maybe the little girl could be involved in the events that occurred.
1973 - Wicker Man (Robin Hardy)
