Analysis of The Number 23
The music behind the opening was an orchestrated score which sounded eerie which created a feeling of suspense and tension. It helped to create fear of the unknown. There is shots of pieces of paper with the number 23 printed all over it. The space that the number 23 takes up on the paper gets larger and larger towards the end to also create a build up of tension. The number 23 on the page turns into looking like more of a pattern as oppose to many numbers. There is also an increasing amount of blood being shown over the paper. This also adds to the sense of tension and suspense maybe implying that as time passes more and more blood is being spilt. It is a very subtle yet very effective opening.
