Best thriller inspirations

What makes a good thriller is a twist in the story, a romantic involvement with the villain, unpredictable appearances. A good thriller has to make the audience feel emotionally connected with the characters; the director holds you in place waiting for something frightening to happen. This anticipation is usually much more frightening than the actual event, however, in 'The Orphanage' the suspense is drawn out to the point that you start to cringe and pray that whatever is going to happen will please happen soon. Other thriller movies which are quite inspirational are:
