More on cinema audiences.

Genre by gender diagram
- From the diagram above i can tell that thrillers more appeal to males. This is because the sub genres mainly are on the side closest to male ( action , crime , horror, sci-fi) . But the suspense genre lays in the  middle showing that it does also appeal to females but not as much as it does for males.

- The certificates for thriller films are usually 15 or 18. This can be seen in ten examples from the teaching blog :

THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 15
DONNIE DARKO 15
PANIC ROOM 15
THE SHINING 15
ENEMY OF THE STATE 15
SEVEN 18
COLLATERAL 15
WHAT LIES BENEATH 15
PYSCHO 15
MEMENTO 15

This tells me that thrillers appeal to the older more mature audiences. They would also be educated, to understand the usually complicated plot and are more than likely to be males. This can be seen through the certificates and the diagram above. Both of these pieces of evidence will help me in creating my thriller as i know what the target audiences is and who i have to make the opening appeal to.
