Thank you Ed for suggesting. :)
It's nice you instantly took notice of this suggestion.
The thing is: Face-Offs are limited to 5 suggestions.
(That I allready made up)

There is a clue why I suggested these. First I wanted to take mediocre examples to mix it a little and for not taking always the same examples. But the I thought that all options should have the most high rated representative to a) reach more people and b) to give them the best chances. So I would change the list only for examples that seem more popular in a high quality way to me. I think these are elitist examples that mostly everybody knows.

Breu,

I think Crime is more connected to Thriller but it's just my point of view, i'm not necessarily right.

Thank you for this suggestion, SeventhAr7. :D

I have a problem with the word 'Thriller'. It sounds like all and nothing.
Thriller can be action, crime, suspense, historical, SciFi. For me it looks
like a complete artificial word for all they can't explain further. It sounds
amazing like suspense, action, crime, it sounds special, but when I look to ...

action - I know it's loud and fast
romance - I know it's about any kind of love
scifi - I know it's a fiction of things attached to scientiffical background
comedy - I know it should bring me to laughter
crime - I know there are bad guys and maybe good guys to fight each other
musical - I know I will face a lot of singing attached to a kind of story
drama - I know it's about human or animal beings and livings stories
superheroes - I know it's about heros with special abilities

now thriller:
I Know, it stands on many film covers I saw - maybe 1/4 of them all and it says nothing to me. It never said anything exact to me.

I hope I could explain my motivations exact enough. But I also know with new knowledge a mind setting can be changed. Maybe it's because I don't live in the U.S. - never did. And I never had the exact definition of what a 'thriller' is. No one could tell me exactly. So my first pictures that run before my eyes when I hear the word 'Thriller' is Michael Jackson dancing with some zombies. ;D

But I'm always ready to learn. So you can change my mind, fellow.

Grettings. :)

Thriller Genre to me.
It's only a thriller if it is well written and directed.
Take the same plot and story and have a bad script and director, and Thriller does not even apply.

With that definition, 'Groundhog Day' would be a thriller, too.

Sorry for that above. I didn't mean 1/4 of the covers. It's more like 1/4 of the movies in the movie guides. Schwarzenegger's 'Raw Deal' is tagged as thriller on IMDb, too.

Same deal with 'Cobra' with Stallone. Was that really well written and directed?
