The structure of thriller openings!

There are 3 basic structures that are used for film openings, and here are some examples of each:

1) A narrative opening with the titles running throughout:

  The Shinning

 The Stepfather

2) A discrete title sequence:


 Arlington Road

3) Titles over a blank screen followed by a narrative opening:

  Donnie Darko

4) Stylized editing:

  Pelham 123
