(p.83) Chapter 3 Hearing Cutting

Wickham Clayton

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter discusses the death sequences and murder set-pieces in the Friday the 13th films to show how the combination of sound and editing work together to create perspective. First, the chapter looks at the idea of ‘unverified diegetic sound,’ which is a noise that comes from within the film (not from the score) where viewers do not see the source of the sound. Then, the chapter considers different approaches to using unverified diegetic sound with editing to show the killer’s perspective, the victim’s perspective, an omniscient perspective, and combinations of different perspectives within the death sequences.
