Truby's Blockbuster 6.0 Genre Add-on: Thriller

At a Glance

  • Genre add-on for Truby’s Blockbuster software
  • Provides 7-Keys and 22-Steps along with popular story examples
  • Lets you focus on the specific elements of your chosen genre

Thriller

Our Thriller Software Add-on is specially designed to help you write something unique in this popular but often predictable genre.

Thriller is one of the most popular genres because it combines the criminality and surprise of the detective with the danger and pressure of horror. A good thriller puts the hero in trouble early and never lets up. But thrillers can be tricky because you have to create a lot of plot in a small space with just a few characters.

The THRILLER SOFTWARE ADD-ON connects seamlessly to the Blockbuster program and solves that problem and so much more. With the Thriller Maps, you can see exactly how to lay out the thriller story beats for maximum plot in minimum space, how to create the unique thriller hero, how to avoid special thriller roadblocks that will throw you off course, and keys for transcending the typical thriller for a real knockout script.

Story Beats: apply all the specialized Story Beats for the Thriller Genre. Make sure you hit a suspenseful crime, a not-so-innocent suspect, and a reduced hero, among other Thriller beats.

Specialized Maps: use the Character and Nightmare Maps to create resourceful heroes and dangerous opponents while keeping the pressure rising.

Thriller Class: learn all the professional techniques from Truby’s Thriller Class, organized and available when and where you need it most.

4 Story Examples: solve any story problems using four special Thriller Story Examples.

The Thriller add-on helps you lay out the story beats for maximum plot in minimum space, using:

  • 9 key story beats of the thriller
  • Character Map
  • The Crime-personal connection
  • Nightmare sequences in great thrillers
  • Thriller genres and their story beats
  • Inherent problems in writing any thriller
  • Nightmare Map
  • Ideal method for writing thrillers
  • Transcending the thriller form

BONUS MOVIE EXAMPLES:  Michael Clayton, Silence of the Lambs, The Conversation, Basic Instinct
