Thriller Sub-Genres Research

Thriller films sometimes have a sub-genre. This means that as well as being a thriller film it also has aspects as other genres, these include:
  • Psychological
  • Romance
  • Action
  • Supernatural
  • Political
 A film that inspires me at the moments comes from the sub-genre of supernatural. What lies beneath falls into the supernatural sub-genre due to the use of camera,sound , mise en scene , editing and the titles. The use of camera shots such as close-up,high angle and aerial shots create a sense of suspense allowing it to be defined as a thriller. The music during the opening scene is very atmospheric and mid tempo, again creating the feeling of suspense Also in the clip we get a quick glimpse of a face , almost scaring the audience creating the supernatural feeling to the movie.The editing of it starts off slow and mysterious but when it gets to the climax it speeds up, adding to the supernatural feel of the film.
