The dim lights, the amount of blood and the loud music all contribute to our thoughts about the scene, before any of the dialogue has been spoken. The audience is able to see how his obsessiveness is evil from the certain techniques used such as those of camera angles and the lighting used along with this, also the way Frankenstein acts while with Elizabeth's limp, lifeless body and how Victor is smiling and dancing even though his life has been ruined by his own obsessiveness over creating new life. The varying in techniques changes the way the viewers see and accept the themes in movies. The techniques show us how deep their love is, like the gentle music and bright lights used on the night of there wedding. Facial expressions allow the audience to see what is happening in the film, like that of the look on the monsters face when he yells "I will have my vengence. The techniques that show the love between Victor Frankenstein and Elizabeth is portrayed by the opposite film techniques used to show evil. Although movies use pictures to portray horror and novels use words, both stories have descriptive horror sections that vividly get the point across of evil. The theme of revenge coincides with evil and often has the same film techniques used with it to show the darkness of vengeance like that of Elizabeth's death. Prior to Elizabeth's death we can hear the flute which the monster is playing, with this there is no lighting outside, it is raining and there is a full moon. Frankenstein has a bare torso and flowing cape resembling that of the devil, which portrays evil. After Elizabeth's death the audience is able to see Victor Frankenstein's obsessiveness when he goes mad and starts to create another body from from the pieces of his wife. There is also thunder and lightning and quick flowing music all of which add to show the theme of evil and we remember the warning, "May God have mercy on your loved ones. When Victor Frankenstein is creating the body, the use of blood and gore instantly shows us the violence and evil of the scene.
