This chapter goes deeper into understanding the background of the project, as well as the primary concept of perspective as it is used throughout the book. Then, the chapter explores the history of horror cinema through perspective. The chapter goes on to explain and describe the concept of the eye/camera, which is linked to writing about point-of-view shots, which is significant to the arguments in chapter 2. This leads into a summary of the Friday the 13th film series and its contexts. Finally, the chapter summarizes the chapters in the book and the overarching argument across the chapters.

Keywords:   Perspective, point-of-view, eye/camera, history, horror
