Top 5 Thrillers

Top 5 Thrillers

Bellow is list of the Top 5 Thrillers which appears on IMDb's official website. From this I was able to understand certain things about the Thriller Genre and also what these things tell me about the audiences Thriller's reach and what conventions make a popular Thriller.

5. Goodfellas (1990)
4. Inception (2010)

3. Waar (2013)

2. Pulp Fiction (1994)

1. The Dark Knight (2008)

All of these films were released in the 1990's or later. This tells me that currently Thriller genre is reasonably popular. Furthermore, I am also told by this that the genre is still evolving and it's very difficult to outline a specific set of conventions. All of these films are very diverse however all of them have certain psychological aspects to them which play with the viewers minds. In addition to this all of the films have a much more mature cast as well as a mature storyline (a clear example of this is the dark nature of the 2008 bBatman film The Dark Knight' which was far removed to the more colourful Batman films preceding this).
