The Structure of Thriller Openings

There are three types of basic structures that are followed:

  • a narrative opening with the titles running throughout
 e.g The Shining and The Stepfather

  • a discrete title sequence 
e.g. Se7en and Arlington Road

  • titles over a blank screen, followed by the narrative opening
e.g Donnie Darko and Mesrine
