  • Dark Shadows Scene Analysis

    In the final scene of Dark Shadows Barnabas returns to his home just as Angie and an angry mob of people arrive. Angie is there to arrest the family for harbouring a murder. Barnabas makes an offer of himself and Liz to be arrested if there is no harm to come upon his family. As he does this Tim Burton uses a centred close up camera shot of Carolyn closing their house doors building the tension of the audience as if there was going to be a war between the family and Angie, knowing that she wouldn’t take the deal. As the scene carries on there are a lot of over the shoulder camera shots between Angie and Barnabas as he strangles her. These camera shots display to the audience the emotion of each character as the scene plays out between them. Dialogue is also a power technique used in this scene after a cop shoots Barnabas and nothing happens, Angie says to him “go show them what you are” and Barnabas says back “no, I shall show them what we are.” This is when the war between them breaks out. Another over the shoulder shot is shown as Barnabas bites Angie’s neck and she throws him into the same door Carolyn closed. He and she are now exposed to the people. Centred shots of the two characters show that this war is about them two, people can stand in the way but at the end of the day it is between them. As Carolyn helps with being a werewolf and Liz helps with a shot gun it shows the loyalty these characters have for Barbanas and the hatred they have towards Angie. As fires are…

    In the 1950s, foods took a change for the better… or worse. Things that Americans now take for granted were rare novelties back then.

Before this time, women were expected to spend hours in the kitchen preparing meals for their families. This new way of food preparation changed the amount of money spent on food, the…
