"This thesis will critically examine the use of sound in the horror film Session 9, focusing on its effectiveness for creating an atmosphere of fear, anxiety, and discomfort to a viewing audience. The relationship between image and sound is crucial in the analysis, as sound is used in cinema to present information to viewers as well as manipulate their emotions. Sound continuity and sound montage are two different ways of achieving these goals, and both methods will be analyzed within the scope of the horror film genre. My study will clarify the major differences between the more popular sound continuity and the less mainstream sound montage, and go into further detail about how each sound technique is used in previous horror films."
