|David and Michael uttering|
For example, False- plateau is used when David softly whispered to Michael "Meet me in the Basement", this makes the audience (including myself) uneasy as we know of the murderer's [David] past events with other families. My reasons given is that, why of all places would you want to have talks in a basement? It's a weird place to have talks as a basement to me connotates a concealed, dark, and secretive area. Also, the low non-diegetic music played in the background, enhances my idea of a bad ending. But my thoughts of a bloody killing unquestionably turns out to be a relaxing conversation between the two, even with alcohol. However, after my false judgement about David, he doesn't put his killer hands down, as he later returns to murder his neighbour (Mrs. Cutters) after she suspects him of being a serial killer.
