How We Determine Our Grades

Movies will often play homage to other films. If you have seen Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window you will recognize the sequence where Rachel waits on her apartment balcony, peering into the windows of her neighbors. (The filmmakers even included a man in a wheelchair with a broken leg!) For other scary flics, check out The Others and The Sixth Sense.
