    What were some of the strategies you used in scaring the audience versus shocking them using sound in the film? Gary Rydstrom :There are two ways of going at it; it's the old Alfred Hitchcock story about the bomb under the table. You can shoot the scene two ways, either show the bomb and get the audience to worry about it for a long time before it explodes or don't show the audience the bomb and when it explodes, it's a real shock. It's the same thing with the sound. You either have the simple shock moments like a loud pop in a fireplace. It is the simplest trick in the book. It is simply a real fireplace pop played very loud. With a change in levels, you sneak into it. Everything is meant to get almost whispery and then the POP! has a real shock. On the other hand, there are moments when you just get a sense of something being off, and it evolves into that scary and suspenseful moment. When Nell saw something in the fireplace, it ultimately turned into a big shock with the lion flue coming out and banging into the screen. But during the time leading up to that moment, there were tiny little wind wisps in the fireplace ... but those could also be someone breathing and moving the chains back and forth in the fireplace. The sound builds with suspense to the shock of the lion head coming out. Those moments extend the creepiness a lot longer. The movie is full of examples of both.
