This research examines the importance of liminal spaces in psychological thriller films like "The Shining," "The Platform," and "The Woman in the Window." The goal is to investigate how these transitional spaces affect the movie's storyline, set design, and overall cinematic experience. Liminality, the transitional state between two worlds, is crucial in creating an effective transition from reality to the film's world. Liminal spaces in cinema can heighten the emotional impact of the story and build anticipation among viewers, making them an essential aspect of set design. Qualitative research methods are used to analyze the films' use of liminal spaces and their effect on the movie-going experience. This research can provide valuable insights into the significance of liminal spaces in cinema and their potential impact on interior architecture. Click here to view the Full Report.
