There are many reasons as to why audiences watch movies such as: Entertainment, to gain more knowledge, educational purposes, escaping from reality and social interaction. This links onto the Gratification Theory by Blumer and Katz. Their theory says talks about entertainment, escaping the real world, being educated, social interaction and self identification. These days the social interaction has changed as socialising now is through social networking sites whereas before it was chatting face to face.
I have decided to pick Psychological Thrillers as I believe more people will be interested in it especially females. Furthermore it will educate the audience about situations they are unsure about. My target audience will be 15 years and above as there will be strong language used in the opening scene due to sensitive topics.
