Use mise-en-scene analysis to analyse and compare the roles women play in Alien and Ringu. Show how women characters are integral to the development of horror in both films. You should write no more than 1,500 words. Think carefully about what the question means. The essay requires you to use mise-en-scene analysis, which means that you must identify and analyse specific scenes; do not simply make sweeping claims about the films. Be sure to compare the roles women play in Alien and Ringu. How do the films represent women? Are there similarities? Are there differences? What do these various representations suggest? It is best that you structure your essay according to points of comparison instead of writing mini-essays on each film. Avoid listing points or presenting a plot summary of the films. As with any essay, ensure that you have a clear structure: begin with an introduction and thesis statement; support the thesis with body paragraphs that have clear topic sentences and follow up with good evidence and analysis that answers the question and reinforces your thesis; end with a relevant conclusion.
