Mise-en-scene: Both main characters are dressed in a white shirt, with a black jacket. The female accompanying him is dressed in light coloured clothing that shows her character and presence blends in with the surroundings. Spencer clearly stands out in the scene, with his manner of clothing. the audience assumes that there is something sinister about him.

Suspense is a feeling of uncertainty and anxiety about the outcome of certain actions, most often referring to an audience's perceptions in a dramatic film or clip. Suspense is particularly useful in directing tension towards certain aspects in a scene. This in turn has a psychological and emotional effect amongst the audience as suspense is being portrayed in various ways. Alfred Hitchcock states, "Suspense is an emotional process".
