Screenplays Featuring: ‘Prison’ Stories

One of the many ‘Crime’ subgenres.

Neither a ‘mood’ nor a ‘tone,’ these scripts have a specific style of filmmaking that relates to a ‘Primary Genre’ and a subgenre.

Scripts under the ‘Prison’ subgenre include stories about imprisonment. This also includes ‘kidnapping’ and ‘forcible confinement’ narratives.


The Shawshank Redemption (1994), Escape from Alcatraz (1979), The Green Mile (1999), Life (1999), and Room (2015) are all examples of this ‘Crime’ subgenre.
