Scary Shots/ Scenes

What's more delightful than watching a film that makes you spill popcorn every 10 minutes?
Psycho of course, not knowing who the killer is, the face not revealed and the dramatic irony.

What makes the shot scary is the angle it is in, for example:
Low angle shots/point-of-view, which makes the audience feel inferior.
 

Lit by candle: Mid shot. Lighting is key.

The binary opposition of dark vs light
