Not even that, there are many special effects that Bekmambetov applies in this movie, like slow-motion with sound effects that certainly provides that "ouch" reaction from audiences. Bekmambetov also use his ingenuity and inventing new ways to attack, defend and ambush the opponent. Even though Bekmambetov applied motion-capture animation and CGI in this movie, but who will imagine that they will shoot the villain from on top of the train and how the Fraternity know that it will pass the target’s office window?

    Tarantino creates an expectation through his powerful dialogues and narrative, but at the same time, Robert Ebert claims, he plays with his audience, delaying the expected murder (Bailey, 2013, p.158). As a result, the viewers response of the cold blooded murder is laughter, often followed by an “atmosphere of ... discomfort” (Langley, 2000, p.79). But Pulp Fiction “favors intensity over explicit gore and often ... places violence outside the frame.” (Bailey, 2013, p.158) or softens violent events by wider angles or blocked shots. For example, when Jules and Vincent shoot Brett, the camera stays on them or Marvin’s shot in the head is filmed from outside the car.

    The constant evolution of the horror film can make it difficult to talk about the genre as a whole. This is partly due to the genre’s endless goal to shock their audience; therefore, they must always seek to break expectations of what is truly scary. Still, the cultural immortality of these three films can be attributed to their similar skill in being able to violate the audience’s expectations of what nightmares are made of while also portraying a familiarity towards the anxieties they are feeling at the time. “This strange relationship between the recognizable and the shocking is suggested by James Ursini who contends, “Horror is based on recognizing in the unfamiliar something familiar” (Phillips…
