Imagine almost any Alfred Hitchcock film that you have enjoyed, and you understand the pull of Psychological Suspense. These are books that play with our minds, that create frisson of unease, that blend the creepiness generated by the Horror genre with the tension inherent in Suspense. These are stories that attract a range of readers—and filmmakers—and fit uneasily in any related genre into which we try to slot them.

If you wanted to create an annotated bibliography, what would you need to do?
To create an annotated bibliography, you would need to begin by gathering all your source information. In an annotated bibliography, you need to include each source, written in proper MLA format, that you will likely use for your research paper. In addition, for each source you must write a summary and some sort of commentary for each source. You can include paraphrases or quotations that seem especially helpful. Essentially, the annotated bibliography is a streamlined way to keep track of all your sources so you do not have to rifle through all your notes each time you want to find out what a particular source has to offer to the end research project.

Summary: This passage is an introduction to the “Psychological Suspense” genre.

Commentary: I find this passage interesting because it relates books to movies in a way that makes sense to me. Also, I like the definition that the author uses to explain “psychological suspense.” She calls it “horror + suspense,” making use of two genre terms that are more familiar to people than her term “psychological suspense.”
