SP - Sample Opening: A Nightmare On Elm Street

A Nightmare On Elm Street (Wes Craven, 1984)
Budget: $1.8 000 000
US Box Office: $11 000 000
UK Box Office: Not Available

Low angle / Close Up of feet and we don't see the mans face so its a use of narrative enigma
High angle of man putting knives on table but only hands are shown
The man is wearing a red sweater signifying blood, death and danger
Close up of a hand picking up gloves
Close up of man cutting object still with narrative enigma and could be foreshadowing things to happen in the future
Close up of man hammering knife/glove contraption (the object Freddie wears on his hands)
Close up of filing down knife contraption
Close up of man using blow torch on the contraption which signifies he is a skiller craftsman
Extreme close up of him sliding the glove contraption onto his hands
Close up of him looking at his hand and weilding the knifes on it. 
The shots are also very quick and don't last longer than a second or two.
Non-diagetic sounds which include very long keyboard notes
