White text with a black background signifies a serious film and may also connote good and evil
The American flag signifies the location but also the pride Americans have
It is windy, raining, there is thunder and lightning and it is set at night are stereotypical features of a horror film
Establishing, panning shot and dutch angle signifies something is wrong
Information on the sign adds anchorage and exposition
The flashing and shadows connote thunder and lightning but it also adds tension
There is an evidence locker and things are moving inside it which signifies that someone is coming or has gone past
The mask and chainsaw etc are intertextual references
Close up of hand signifies the opening of the evidence locker but also danger
The low angle / long shot is a POV which signifies the man is being followed and probably killed
