Question Description

All of the requirements are listed in the document. Again, this an in-depth, cinematic/thematic analysis and argument, not a summary. You make a point (such as the specific example in the document) and back it up. It is not strictly limited to the movie itself, but external sources as well. Additionally and finally, this is NOT necessarily a summary either. Double spaced and three full pages. You are more than welcomed to include additional sources and citations to support your argument and not only examples from the film. Thanks.

Vampire Films Paper Write an analysis paper on “Interview with the Vampire” (1994). The form of the paper is argument: make a specific point and back it up. Keep a clear focus and use specific examples from the film(s) to back up your points. The best topics are the ones in which you are interested. Choose an aspect of the movie (homoerotic themes, Louis/Lestat,etc for example) and do some critical thinking about it. Discuss some specific aspect of film history. Be sure to use both cinematic and thematic examples: “Cinematic examples” means that you must discuss the mise-en-scène, cinematography, editing, and/or sound “Thematic examples” means that you must discuss larger issues in the film, outside the cinematic aspects. Some ideas: - Discuss the representations of women in any of the films we’ve seen so far this semester. - Consider the changing representations of vampires we have seen throughout the course of film history, to this point in the semester. - Consider the similarities/differences between the U.S. films and the non-U.S. films we have seen. - Use any of the handout questions and expand on one. Specifics on the paper: • • • • • 3 pages. Double-space throughout. 12 pt. font, 1” margins, and numbered pages. You need not use outsides sources, but if you do, make sure they are properly formatted. Give it a title. Make it interesting! Some tips on writing about film: • • • • Films are texts. Always underline or italicize films over 60 minutes in length. Short films are short texts, so they are put in quotation marks. Follow the same writing process you’ve been following in your writing career: pre-write, draft, re-write, edit. Revision is the key to any paper, just as editing is the key to any film. Don’t feel the need to re-tell the entire story. We’ve all seen the films, so only summarize or detail what you need to make your points. YOUR points, analysis, and use of examples are the important aspects. Speak the language of cinema studies. Refer to specific terminology. ...

Vampire representation has always been considered mythic in the modern society.
However, vampires have represented a belief system that has been held superior in many cultures
around the world. In a majority of African societies, there was a belief of vampire-like creatures
that were believed to have different roles depending on each society. In South American
communities, vampires were thought to exist but in a religious context. Across medieval Russia
and northern America, vampire belief existed. Therefore, a vampire has not been a new concept
but rather a historical creation that represented inner societal fears. Marmell & Shomshak (2004)
points out that vampires, just like any other horror creatures, are a societal manifestation human
fears and corruption. Through these creatures, humans can recreate their fears and express their
inner beings without being judged. The movie “The Interview with a Vampire” is a perfect
example that depicts the extent upon which humans have developed such ability. A comparison...
