In Cujo by Stephen King, the author uses third-limited omniscient view to enhance the level of suspense in the story. The author adds several details that talks about Donna’s feeling and thoughts when she sees Cujo and how she reacts to it. At the beginning of the story when Donna sees Cujo, “there was no contact between her brain and her legs. That twisted gray filament running down the core of her spine had shut of the signals.” This tells me that when Donna saw Cujo, her brain was telling her to do things but her body and legs refused to move. From this, we know what she is thinking at the time she saw Cujo. This adds suspense to the story because we now know that she has been paralyzed with fear and isn’t able to move. We are
As Ali's face dissolves to a flashback, non-diegetic music accompanies the overview of Algiers.

Most readers identify Stephen King’s works as horror, however he sees them as suspense novels (citation needed). Stephen King is often associated with the horror genre because of his excessive use of gore in his novels. However, gore is merely a side agenda that helps King shape his ideas. Instead, King’s main goal is to create suspense. By creating a vivid image of the impact of a murder, rape, or other catastrophe he is able to foster his goal by unnerving his reader and creating a conflict. Stephen King’s extensive and creative use of detail and literary elements in his novels assists the motive for the conflict between good and evil, constructs a complete depiction of the supernatural and reality, and builds an ongoing sense of tension.
Between the three stories, “The Dogs Could Teach Me,” “The Flowers,” and “The Sniper.” “The Sniper” demonstrates the best suspenseful text between the three stories. To create a suspenseful story, “The Sniper” develops multiple moments of suspense. For instance one illustration of suspense in “The Sniper” is, “He paused for a moment, considering whether he should risk a smoke. It was dangerous. The flash might be seen in the darkness, and there were enemies watching. He decided to take the risk.” This is a suspenseful moment in “The Sniper” because if the sniper risks to smoke, he will be giving away his position and could be shot at by the enemy's. Another representation of suspense is, “Pressing his lips together, he took a deep breath
The amount of detail that has been put into the environment is quite dramatic, and even the most minute details will often times earn a “woah” from the player. If you strike an enemy with a bullet, blood will spray against the wall realistically in the direction of the bullet, and destructible objects often fragment properly when struck with bullets. The ambiance of the approaching enemy gets you really into the game, leaving you to listen closely as your adversaries approach your location as you hunker down in defense. This is definitely a game that demands to be played with surround sound, or high-quality earphones.

Suspense is a crucial ingredient in the making of horror and thriller films.

In the film industry, there are various types of genre, but as different as films may seem, they all have one element that links them all together. That element is known as Mise-en-scene.

“‘Watch out!” screamed Maggie. Suddenly the road took a sharp turn, and a huge oak tree loomed in my headlights”(Shusterman 39). When Neal Shusterman uses suspense it’s usually in a way that would probably end badly. He loves to try and hook the reader with suspense, so then the readers would want to keep reading that same book. As evidence in Full Tilt by Neal Shusterman and “The Abandoned Farmhouse” by Ted Kooser, suspense can be effectively created through the use of imagery.
One of the ways that Spielberg conveys a sense of suspense in Jaws is by not showing the shark. He gives us man glimpses of it, such as the fin, and shadows accompanied by blood, but never the full until late in the film.
