Structure of opening of Thriller films

There are three basic structures when you notice film openings these are:

  • A narrative opening with the titles running thoughout
e.g. The Stepfather & The Shinning
  • A discrete title sequence
e.g. Arlington road & Seven
  • Titles over a blank screen, followed by the narrative opening
e.g. Donnie Darko & Mezrine
  • Stylized editing
e.g. Taking of Pelham 123
