Unit Three Online Greenlight Report;

The Uncanny,
“The opposite of what is familiar”

The Uncanny is something Familiar, yet strange and is one of the most frightening things we see in our lives- something that looks like something we feel comfortable with, but knowing something is equally wrong with the concept.

What interests us most in this long extract is to find that among its different shades of meaning the word Heimlich exhibits one which is identical with its opposite, unheimlich. What is Heimlich thus comes to be unheimlich. [...] In general we are reminded that the word Heimlich is not unambiguous, but belongs to two sets of ideas, which, without being contradictory, are yet very different: on the one hand it means what is familiar and agreeable, and on the other, what is concealed and kept out of sight

Introduction into the unit three assessment

Unit Three ‘Uncanny’ Assessment
An Exploration into How the Film: 28 ‘Days Later’ uses film and makeup to create a feeling of the uncanny.
This assessment will look and explore the film ’28 Days Later’ and find out how the make-up artists and director used cinematography and make-up on the actors and environment to create a feeling of the uncanny using Freud’s Essay for reference into the uncanny. With this, this assessment will tell how the uncanny of the film worked to its advantage and how it used the uncanny feeling towards its success using the 28 days later DVD film, the 28 Days Later ‘Pure Rage’: making of the film’ Animated Story boards of 28 days later (with commentary) and ‘still and polaroid gallery with commentary’ from the 28 days later DVD.
