Thriller Sub Genres

Types of thrillers:

  • Political (spies, government, corruption, corporate corruption, mafia)
  • Innocent on the run 
  • Acquired identity (stealing a dead persons identity or cloning)
  • Supernatural
  • Psychological (mind games)
  • Good vs Evil
  • Action
  • Technology out of control
  • The beast as threat
  • Murderous Passions (love triangles, affairs, blackmail)
At the moment I am inspired by Murderous Passions and Psychological thrillers because I think they are the genres that could potentially be turned into the most interesting thriller. I think I could get the most out of this genre of thriller, as there are many different ways in which to make it successful.
