Thriller Sub Genre Research

Sub genres are basically a genre within a genre. a Sub genre film is a film which includes the themes of more than one genre. As part of my coursework I am studying Thriller sub genres. types of sub genre includes: 
  • Romance
  • Psychological
  • Horror
  • Mystery
  • Paranoid
i feel that the thriller sub genre that inspires me the most is Psychological because i feel that its a way of getting the audience to think for themselves, as they are unaware of what might happened next and allows the audience to prepare themselves for the worst. 

This image is from psycho.

The picture bellow is an image taken from "what lies beneath" which was inspired by the film psycho.

This specific sub genre inspired me as i felt that it builds up suspense in a smooth constant way. throughout the clip i watch, high angel shots were taken continuously to on empathize her vulnerability and unawareness. another reason why i favour this sub genre is because it is clear throughout the music what the mood is in the scene.
