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.
