  3. 3. Characteristic of or suffering from psychosis, psychosis - any severe mental disorder in which contact with reality is lost or highly distorted</li></li></ul><li>Serial Killers<br />A serial killer is someone who murders somebody more than once, serial killers perform the horrifying and ghastly acts they do for a range of reasons. Several could have a medical illness and are unable to stop themselves; some can have an obsession with a particular type of victim therefore they repeatedly murder people who fit this obsession. In all cases serial killers need to be stopped for the reason that what they do is brutally malicious and against the law. We have the sense of a killer in the opening sequence to our thriller film, serial killers are extremely dangerous as you don't know when or where they are going to do what they do. You also don't know the reason for their behaviour or who their targets are, we wanted our thriller to have a horrifying yet intriguing atmosphere.<br />
  4. 4. Psychotic People<br />We have decided to feature psychotic people in the opening sequence to our thriller film as they have the element of surprise because their behaviour is unpredictable and unexpected. Some of their behaviour is unexplainable, and adds a sense of mystery and intrigue to a thriller film. <br />Psychotic people lose their sense of reality and are not able to tell what is the truth from what is in fact fiction. What some people don't understand is that suffering from a psychotic illness is actually a classed mental disorder and can take over an individuals life completely, therefore people who suffer from a psychotic illnesses should not be made fun of and excluded from society or made to feel isolated. Instead they should be properly treated and given the careful medical help in which they need. <br />
