Suspense is excitement or anticipation that normally requires an outcome. It also normally creates tension, keeps the audience questioning themselves and guessing what is going to happen next, draws the audience in and most importantly keeps them interested. Most thriller films create this to keep the audience at the edge of their seat.. literally! I know that my film must contain this as it's a vital thing!
The shock you get when your heart sinks in an intense scene, a scene that doesn't add up.
Suspense draws you the audience in. It helps to build anticipation and tension for the coming shots. It is used to maintain the interest of the audience and captivate their emotions.
