Audience Research- Interviews;

After research into film certification, we decided to focus our attention on possible target audiences. In order to do this we selected important questions and interviewed people from a range of ages:

  • Under 15
  • 16-25
  • 26+
Under 15

In the under 15 interview it was interesting to find that the person wasn't inparticularly interested in horror/thriller films and only had a brief knowledge of their conventions. This is a direct result of horror/thriller films usually being in the older film certification such as 12A, 15 and 18 due to the graphical violence and language.


In the interview with a male from the age range 16-25 I found that he had been more aware of thriller/horror film knowledge due to personal interests. They have been aware of horror film conventions and the stereotypes involved in the making.

26+ female + male interviews

These separate interviews with female and male participants show they are aware of thriller/horror films but not the stereotypes involved. All interviews show they don't favour the horror/thriller genre but are aware of films that are of the genre.
