AN - Deconstruction of Babysitter Wanted

Babysitter Wanted (Jonas Barnes and Micheal Manasseri, 2008) 

Budget : Not Given
Box Office : Not Given

  • Music is very slow and childlike at the start which links in to the film name 
  • Close up and fuzzy effect of an unknown object which is polysemic 
  • Low angle/close up of someones legs wearing black trousers which is narrative enigma as we never see his face but also he is the killer
  • Unknown object turns out to be a girl tied up
  • Close up of a box of tools on a desk which signifies a weapon could be used from that toolbox 
  • Extreme close up of the womens face and it shows her eyes which shows emotion because she is crying
  • High angle of the desk again but htis time there are a series of knives lined up 
  • High angle of the women tied up and the camera slowly pans over her body where we find she is only wearing her underwear but she also has lines drawn all over her which could connote that the killer could be about to disect her body
  • Close up of womens face when we see a hammer being lined up on her forehead. This signifies the mental state of the killers mind 
  • The music at this point is really loud and intense to create fear in the audience 
  • The last shot we see is the hammer in mid air and a sound affect to signify that the girl is dead
  • We dont actually see the killing as our imagination is better than anything they could film 
  • The music stops and the camera goes black
