Intertextuality from the Stepfather

the stepfather using a
component of the shaving set
in the opening sequence of the stepfather we can see he has set out his shaving set as he is about to shave, this may give the audience the impression that we are in equilibrium.

However other members of the audiences may take his excellent organisation and neatness as a disorder, over compulsive disorder. This emphasises that he may kill people for the pleasure and just as a means to put everything in equilibrium for him.

I believe this scene is ambiguous because it has more than one meaning to it. This is an aspect which me and my group find really interesting and will hopefully be using this idea in the final project. This may be called Intertextuality, because we are borrowing ideas from other films.
