So in our film we have managed to keep to this stereotype for girls. To the right of this video you can see that this is how others tend to see the portrayal of women in films. Like how we presented, they show them as incapable and loud. In the end of our opening, when the girl gains back her consciousness, she then begins her stereotypical screaming- but then again, in that situation, I think anyone would scream.
This is where our man stereotype comes in. We tend to see the man (in horror films and real life) as either the saviour or the villain. This social group though tends to fall more in the villain side in horror films though. For one example, 'The Lovely Bones (as shown to the left), portrays how powerless girls are against men.
Although not properly showing our young male murderer, you can clearly see we portrayed him to look as normal as a young adult would. He's wearing normal clothing and drives a car to a park, a place where teens often meet to play sports etc. His character therefore portrays this social group perfectly, but his character is slightly off the norm, making him the murderer.
Finally we have represented the asian social group, breaking the stereotype of the classical caucasian male murder, showing that all ethnicities are capable of murder, obviously. In modern society it's rare to find films that are breaking the old stereotype of the white murder, for example all major, yet recent horror films like 'The Purge' and older examples like 'The Shining'. So in that way we didn't represent the stereotypical social group of murderers(?).
