How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

How does this storyline contribute to negative attitudes about different groups, including religious believers? Is this an accurate depiction of persons of faith? How does it impact the way viewers may look at Southerners? Do we see any positive portrayals of those hailing from this part of the country?

While computer graphics are used in many movies to create special effects, this film relies predominantly on age-old tactics. Are these devices, such as the blood splattered camera lens, spooky sounds and dark sets, effective in creating suspense? How does the cost of using these methods compare with paying for computer animation?

Are there dangers in dabbling in the occult? If so, what might they be?
