Thrillers - The different subgenres

Sub-genres are individual categories within a particular genre.
The thriller genre has many different sub genres which are listed below with examples.

Action Thriller - Deja Vu (2006)
Disaster Thriller - 2012 (2009)
Mystery Thriller - Shutter Island (2010)
Political Thriller - Enemy Of The State (1998)
Psychological Thriller - Momento (2000)
Romance Thriller - He Loves me, He loves me not (2002)
Supernatural Thriller - What Lies Beneath (2000)

The most interesting sub-genre to me would be pyschological, as it allows the unthinkable to happen and allows you to really think about what is going on.

I adore the way the conflict lies between the main characters mental and emotional issues, rather than their physical, which in the end leads t

In the opening clip of Momento it shows everything re-winding to the beginning of a man getting shot to the person who shot him holding and developing a picture of it.
