A thriller is a genre of film and television that uses suspense,tension and excitement. Within a thriller there are sub-genres which includes elements of other genres such as Conspiracy thriller, crime, disaster,erotic, legal, medical, mystery, political, psychological, religious, supernatural and techno thrillers.
One of the thriller sub-genres that inspires me is Mystery thriller because it creates tension and gets the audience to think about what will happen. It makes the audience feel anxious and excited. Mystery thrillers are usually about solving a problem or finding out something suspicious. One mystery thriller that inspires me is Salt(2010). The move includes lots of death and misunderstanding towards each other. One of the main actors Angelina Jolie, is being accused of being a KGB sleeper agent, and goes on the run to try to clear her name. While Tom Cruise ,another main actor in the film, was initially secured for the lead, the script was ultimately rewritten for Jolie. I think this film creates a lot of tension and excitement therefore mystery thrillers are more interesting to me that other thrillers.
