A hybrid genre is a combination of two or more genres - e.g. science fiction and crime
Life on Mars - crime and science fiction
The Break-Up - romantic comedy
Woman in Black - thriller/ horror
When looking at The Woman in Black as a 'thriller/ horror', it became clear that the difference between the genres of horror and thriller is not very obvious. Therefore I found definitions of both, in order to allow us to clearly distinguish the difference between the two genres.
Horror - intended to, or has the capacity to frighten its viewers, tends to focus more on the imagery to scare.
Thriller - uses suspense, tension and excitement as its main elements, and tends to focus more on the use of sound than imagery.
