Moods are emotions considered crucial to the plot and conveyed through music, dialogue, performances, build-up and pacing. Moods speak to a film's ambiance. A movie usually conveys more than one mood. Antagonists are people or entities that pose a threat to the protagonist, or hero. Antagonist types are divided into 5 categories: visceral, society, science, afterlife and fantasy.
