2. • There are many indicators in the title sequence that shows us that the film
is set in America. These indicators include American prisons, American
Money, American fire men, highways and cars.
3. The Zombieland sequence shows a contrast of different
themes. Such as it shows conventions of a comedy film
for example the zombie wife killing the groom. Also
from the title sequence we see different scenes that
show evidence that society has been turned on its head
for example the prisoner taking over the prison guard
and bride taking over groom.
However, it also shows conventions of a horror as it
has gory scenes such as a zombie throwing up blood.
From watching the title sequence we
can expect what themes the film will
show for example the idea that
zombies will kill everyone and no one
is spared. I can infer this because all
class of society is shown in the
sequence such as the common
person, business men, public service,
homeless and even criminals.
4. The iconography shown the Zombieland title sequence follows the
codes and conventions of a horror/comedy film as shown in the
snapshot below. As the overweight man is running away from a zombie
Also in the title sequence we see a
large amount of gore this is a big
part of iconography as we see gore
in most horror movies such as SAW.
Another icon to signify its genre
horror is the colour used in the
sequence and the poster, which is
red and black. Also in different
scenes in the sequence uses other
colours to show that it is not just a
horror but a horror comedy.
5. • From watching the title sequence we can tell that the narrative of the film will be
horrific and gory but also comical at the same time. We can infer this from the
themes we get from the sequence. These themes will give the audience
expectations of the film and from this sequence we can tell that the narrative will
be scary but humorous at the same time. However, because the sequence involves
quite a few different scenes the narrative isn't clear as all scenes do not match and
the audience does not expect anything. Also from this we cannot tell what the
narrative is going to be about and who it is going to be about as we do not meet
any main characters.
6. • From this sequence we are not introduced to any main characters but only see
minor characters running away from zombies. However, we are introduced to he
antagonist of the film which are the zombies.
7. • The whole title sequence is shown in slow motion this gives a humorous effect
such as when the zombie stripper is running after a man. Also it counter acts the
gory images we see and puts them in a different perspective as we now see it as
funny. The sound in the title sequence in non-diegetic. It works well with the
sequence because it has the same pace as the sequence. Also fro the music we
can infer what genre the film is going to be as it is fast paced which gives it a
humorous element to what we look at. However, as the music is quite dark we can
infer that it is a horror and matches to what we are looking at.
