As you can see there is a lot of intertexuality between our main character and the main character from "The Stepfather" this is because we were really inspired. You can see the stairs, a very typical scene recreated in all thrillers, we got different angels, but it still created the same effect. Furthermore the character staring back at himself in the mirror, also a very typical move all thriller directors will use, as it creates a lot of suspense as us as humans will always have our mind playing tricks believe you may see something in the reflection. We have intertexualised the characters to show that both representations are similar.
We represent our character using props also, with beer bottles, dirty dishes and cigarettes which all connoted his character.
