“I’m not afraid of death, but I am afraid of murder”
The Conversation

Thrillers get our minds racing as well as our pulses, bringing the twists and turns of psychological and political intrigue together with edge-of-the seat action. We love to be in the grip of uncertainty, and to see our suspicions played out to their perilous conclusions. As well as offering the chance to revel in the work of masters of suspense like Alfred Hitchcock and enjoy the sheer thrill of danger and deception writ large on the big screen, this season is an opportunity to reflect on the way the thriller has evolved to reflect our personal fears in times of political uncertainty and social change.


See screenings of 78/52, Psycho, North By Northwest and The Silence of the Lambs, as well as India on Film: Death and Deception for Indian thrillers.
