Sounds Used and its Effects

Sound/effect name Demonic Growl Scene Flickering lights Effect on the video The sudden introduction to the heavy bass line creates a dramatic effect that something is not right. The increasing volume and tempo of the beeping noise in the background hints that something is getting closer. The cackling noise also connotes to the flickering candle fire. This sound sets up the film. The flanging in the background creates an uncomfortable setting. The church bells in the background foreshadow the religious elements in the film such as good and evil spirits. The natural background noise makes the environment seem realistic. We hear this female gasp when Lily is knocked over by the spirit. When Lily is knocked over the screen is blank, by adding the gasping noise the audience will know that she has just been hurt furthermore the audience won’t confuse themselves with the plot. The slow swishing is the sound of evil spirit knocking Lily over as she blows out the final candle. The audience can not visually see the sound will tell them that it is a spirit. The sound fades in and increases in volume and tempo as Lily’s speed increases. This has an effect on the audience as they can feel the adrenaline rush that Lily is experiencing too. The dramatic sound finishes the film unexpectedly. The loud bang makes the audience jump and frightened by what might have happened.
