Sound is important in every sequence as it creates the mood of the film. Sound is to help create tension with eerie or intense music being played in the background. High pitched sound is often used as it makes the audience uncomfortable it also shows that something unpleasant is going to happen. For example the 1958 film Vertigo Dir (Alfred Hitchcock). In this title sequence the sound is high pitched throughout creating suspense and making the audience uneasy as its also repeated over and over again along with the Saul Bass geometric shapes that also repeat so it makes everything seem never ending.
In thriller it is also common to use add dialogue or inner monologues to the sequence as it creates enigma but also narrative which could link to the film further on. It also creates more direct tension towards the audience as it seems like they are experiencing the the film from the characters point of view.
