Spellbound Guncam

I was very surprised to see this camera angle inĀ Spellbound. Even in modern movies, where seeing scenes through 1st person perspectives of characters is more common, the visual of the gun being wielded by the person we see through is a bit shocking. The idea of voyeurism plays a big part here, as the audience now becomes the threat and the gun wielder. Horror movies occasionally play out this idea of showing the world through the killer’s eyes.
