The thriller is perhaps the most popular and widespread movie genre
- and the most difficult to define. Thrillers can contain gangsters
or ghosts, space helmets or fedoras. They charge our familiar world
with a spirit of exotic, old-fashioned adventure. They give us
pleasure by making us uncomfortable - on the edge of our
seats.Thrillers provides a comprehensive treatment of this genre,
from silent serials to stalker films, from Alfred Hitchcock to
Quentin Tarantino, from The Great Train Robbery to L.A.
Confidential. This accessible, wide-ranging volume is designed to
appeal to students and general filmgoers alike, and shows how this
visceral, double-faced film genre has aroused our intense
sensations throughout decades of American cinema.
