Suspense created in The Stepfather.

The movie The Stepfather was a thriller, and tension and suspense was created throughout, using a number of techniques. At the start of the film, digetic sound was used. The song silent night played on the radio, and the use of this light-hearted song creates an air of mystery and eeriness, which suggests to the audience that all is not as it should be. Camera angles were also used to create suspense- a slow pan was used to show the living room and kitchen, and then a lopsided tilt showed the son lying dead.
