  1. I was struck with how many "tropes" I saw in the beginning scenes (and throughout the movie as well); for example, the children singing a mildly disturbing song in a foreboding way; the shadowy outline of the murderer over his own wanted poster; the tension of the mother slowly realizing something is horribly wrong; the deeply creepy whistling from the killer. These tropes are the building blocks of many modern horror and suspense movies, too many to name. It made me wonder--is this the first instances of these tropes? Where they informed by earlier appearances in German films?
