My words : A Thriller film's purpose is to "thrill" its audience. Involving dangerous, undesirable and savage scenes and situations. Such as; blood, crime, murder, violence, rape and blackmail. Thrillers usually always include Sub-genres like action thrillers, drama thriller and horror thrillers.
"Thriller Film is a genre that revolves around anticipation and suspense. The aim for Thrillers is to keep the audience alert and on the edge of their seats. The protagonist in these films is set against a problem – an escape, a mission, or a mystery. No matter what sub-genre a Thriller film falls into, it will emphasize the danger that the protagonist faces. The tension with the main problem is built on throughout the film and leads to a highly stressful climax." - The Script Lab
