Jaws is an extremely suspenseful movie. There are many factors in this film that creates tension and suspense. The famous sound track from this movie is used every time an exciting or scary clip is about to be shown.
In the clip we analysed, there was a false alarm of the Sharks in the water. The slow pace editing at the beginning  causes anxiety and impatience. The build up of the famous music plays a major role in building tension within the audience. The music slows down and the audience realise nothing happened. This is called a false sense of security, created by the production team. Suddenly, the Sharks appear and the action begins. This shock the audience and increases their pulse rates. Even after the shocking part is shown, the audience are still suspenseful as to what may happen in the next exciting part of the film.
