Ok, so this question's title isn't very clear, so let me explain:
I'm looking for examples of when the villain of the movie has some identifying sound like clothing that makes noise, spurs on his boots, an identifying footstep gait, a tracking device etc. and clever uses of this sound to add suspense in a scene - such as that hotel scene in "No Country for Old Men" when the villain is walking closer to the closed door and all you hear is the beeping of the tracking device, which is absolutely brilliant use of off-screen sound in a movie to create suspense.
I'm writing an essay for a director to show him how he can use sound to his advantage in his upcoming feature he has in a planning stage and I want him to realize how important sound is to the film as well as try to get him to add a special element like a tracking device or sound the villain makes which can add so much more tension to his chase scenes.
And I don't want to just write about it, I want to show him examples from movies where this has been done with great benefit.
So far, I only have these:
- No Country for Old Men
- Jurassic Park (T-Rex footsteps)
- Lord of the Rings (the goblins in Moria, you only hear them before you see them)
- I Am Legend (the first night you see Will Smith sleep in his bathtub without knowing why, and you hear the things outside his windows)
If any other movies quickly come to mind could you please list them? That would be very helpful!
Thanks in advance!
