Movies are a very effective means of communication. But just how much and what do they communicate to a young audience? Can a violent movie turn an impressionable teenager violent? A violent human being is a result of many different factors. This project tries to see just how responsible violent movies are for violent actions.
In this research, a comprehensive questionnaire was made to be answered by teenagers in high school. A total of 72 students were questioned. The questions ranged from a teenager's perspective of movies to a his relationship with his parents. The answers were compiled on a database program and analyzed.
It was found that there was a correlation between kids who tend to be more violent and enjoy violent films. There was a stronger correlation however between kids whose parents either hit or yell at their kids and kids who tend to be more violent.
