SUSPENSE is an anxious feeling, one feels when certain actions or outcomes are unexpected; often occuring in dramatic work. for example, television shows, and most commonlh films. Suspense is purposly created to build up tension of a big event or dramatic scene. Film director Alfred Hitchcock is well known for using this technique of creating suspense by making the audience believe a bad event is going to happen, however they are powerless in stopping it from happening.

This makes the audience feel a sense of curiousity on whats going to happen next which usually leads to a cliff hanger. Suspense is created in many different ways, for example ending the scene dramatically leading you to know more as to what happens after that occuring event; a simple 'last speech' or 'important prop' all add to the suspense.
