Thriller movies are split into many sub genres. Some of these sub-genre are:
Crime Thrillers- Seven, Silence of the Lambs
Psychological Thrillers- Psycho, Memento
Action Thrillers- Deja Vu, Casino Royale
Romance Thrillers- He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not
There are two sub-genres that inspire me. One is crime thrillers. The reason why i find it interesting is because they usually follow the life of the criminal. This could lead us to finding out more about the criminal and we start to feel sorry for them or we find out why they have been taken into prison. Another sub-genre I enjoy and I am inspired by is psychological thrillers. I find it interesting how the director and the movie are able to confuse the audience and make them believe one thing that is actually something else. Also it may be that the protagonist's conflict is emotional or psychological not physical.
