AN - Sample Opening - Cry Wolf

Cry Wolf (Jeff Wadlow, 2005)
Budget: $1m
UK Box Office takings: £190 k
US Box Office takings: $10m

  • Narrative enigma of the killer, due to the lack of lighting.
  • Phone symbolises time period. It also provides a small ammount of light for the girl
  • Point of view shots are used when the killer is chasing the girl during the opening.
  • A white flash transition is used in the opening to move onto the next scene.
  • A gun shot can be heard during the transition, this signifies what the killer's weapon of choice is.
  • High angle panning of a red forest is used to signify the season the film takes place in.
  • The wolf in the lying game could hint at a possible killer.
  • Cry Wolf has similarities with The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
  • The killer's face is hidden via a mask = another narrative enigma.
