Can anyone give me an example of a pure Thriller? I had a hell of a time with this genre in challenge 2, and only made it work by making a sci-fi thriller, but one of my judges took specific issue with that.

The examples they give with the genre definition are:
The Hunt for Red October - Military/Spy Thriller
Gone Girl - Crime Thriller
Se7en - Crime Thriller
Mission: Impossible - Spy Thriller
Black Swan - Psychological Thriller
FF#1: First Case (Mystery) - 9pts

Any genre that includes Gone Girl along with Mission Impossible has some identity issues, yes.
