Parody, Homage, Archetype & Allusion

PARODY, HOMAGE, ALLUSION, & ARCHETYPES PARODY Parody is the practice of taking something well known or renowned and making a mockery of it. i.e. Scary Movie franchise Generally, parodies are meant to create a comic

redo of a specific genre or artist. HORROR FILM GENRE Horror films go back as far as the onset of films themselves, LaManoirDuDiable 1896. Gothic style-spooky old mansions, fog shrouded, dark and shadowy. Calculated to cause intense repugnance, fear, or

dread and to entertain us. Play upon our worst/most primal fears. Cathartic (relieving emotion tension) experience HORROR FILMS May incorporate incidents of physical violence and psychological terror. May be studies of deformed, disturbed, psychotic, or evil characters. May have terrifying

monsters or malevolent animals. May be mystery thrillers FRANKENSTEIN 1931 adaptation of Mary Shelleys novel, directed by James Whale Boris Karloff plays the Monster; he was an unknown at the time Epitome of the mad scientist film genre James Whale directed the sequel Bride of Frankenstein (1935),

inspired many sequels/adaptations HOMAGE A respectful tribute to someone or something; this often occurs within one movie when a reference is made to another film's scene, image, etc. Aston Martin DB5 in Goldfinger Aston Martin DB5 in Skyfall (2012) YOUNG

FRANKENSTEIN Dr. Frankensteins grandson, trying to live down his grandfathers legacy, inherits the family castle and other familial traits Young Frankenstein used a lot of the same lab equipment props that were used in Karloffs original.

In the scene after the dart game, when Kenneth Mars character is leaving the castle, there is a gargoyle that looks like Alfred Hitchcock. SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE TWO Gene Hackmans blind character accidentally pouring soup in the monsters lap--in The Bride of Frankenstein, a similar character manages to get the soup in the bowl.

Both shot in black and white Same type of music used Elizabeths hair is styled similar to the title character of The Bride of Frankenstein The little village girl--in the 1931 Frankenstein, the monster drowns the village girl, but in this version of the story, he only considers it, although he later inadvertently catapults her through the air from a teeter-totter into her bedroom. ALLUSION An allusion is a brief reference, within a work, to another work of fiction, a film,

a piece of art, or even a real event. An allusion serves as a kind of shorthand, drawing on this outside work to provide greater context or meaning to the situation being shown. Many films allude to very famous works, such as stories from the Bible. ALLUSION Fred Astaire Puttin on the Ritz Young Frankenstein Puttin on the
