  1. 1. PRE PRODUCTION THRILLER RESEARCH By Charlotte Chamberlain
  2. 2. THRILLER MOVIES Goodfellas is a 1990 American crime film directed by Martin Scorsese. It is a film adaptation of the 1986 non-fiction book Wiseguy by Nicholas Pileggi. The film follows the rise and fall of Lucchese crime family associate Henry Hill and his friends over a period from 1955 to 1980.

This film has won many awards including ‘Best American Film, Best Actor, Best Director, Best non-french Film, Best adapted screenplay, Best costume design’ and many many more. It is one of the best thrillers of all time, it has a huge fan base as it has a mega star in that is now well known for playing a part of a gangsta in films. – Robert De Niro.
  3. 3. Inception is a 2010 science fiction film written, co-produced, and directed by Christopher Nolan. A crack team of people attempt to plant an idea in someone's head to break up a business empire in a dream world. Cast Leonardo DiCaprio as Dominick Cobb Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Arthur Ellen Page as Ariadne Tom Hardy as Eames and many more. With a box office revenue of $825,532,764, Inception has won many awards such as ‘Best motion of the year, best writing, best original screenplay, best production design.’ and others.
  4. 4. WHAT IS THRILLER? Thriller is a genre that suspense, tension and excitement as its main elements to engage with the audience. Thrillers stimulate the viewer's moods, giving them a high level of anticipation, surprise, anxiety and/or terror. A thriller provides the sudden rush of emotions, excitement, and exhilaration that drive the narrative. It keeps the audience on the "edge of their seats", as the plot builds towards a climax. Plot twists and cliff-hangers are used a lot in this genre. A thriller is usually a villain-driven plot, whereby he or she presents obstacles that the protagonist must overcome.
  5. 5. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HORROR AND THRILLER? Thriller and horror are very similar to one another. Thriller focusses on physiological storylines that have a mystery behind them, thrillers are able to engage more with the audience as they are (on some level) relatable. As thrillers have a storyline that can be about a miserable marriage that turns ugly and then there is a murder, which is just an example. But audiences are able to engage as it’s a sense of reality, turned ugly. Where as horrors, are more about just building the audiences fear level to the highest, they use blood, scary faces, surprises, gore, torture and many other things to create a disgusting scene that some viewers may not be able to look at. For example – ‘Saw.’
  6. 6. FIRST THRILLER FILM? – ALFRED HITCHCOCK http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfyhFWoNARk Above is a link to the first silent thriller film. The first thriller film was made by Alfred Hitchcock and was the third of his silent films that he had produced. This thriller was called ‘The Lodger’ and was produced in 1926. After this his next thriller was in 1929 and this was notable for being his and Britain's first sound film.
  7. 7. FILM COMPANIES There is not a whole film production company dedicated to making thrillers like there is for horrors, as for horrors we have hammer film productions but for thrillers there is multiple companies that produce them. For example ‘warner brothers’ was the studio that produced inception.
