This video explores through the audio and visuals the research I did for my third year Media Arts dissertation at Plymouth University. For my dissertation I researched thriller films such as Dracula (1930), Psycho (1960) and Sinister (2012) and how they stimulated the emotion of fear to an audience. I also looked at what sounds cause an unpleasant feeling in an audience thanks to Dr Sukhbinder Kumar’s research at Newcastle University.
