The Val Lewton movies  (is horror counting as a thriller or did you mean "suspense"?)

Suspense, suspense-thriller, sometimes the terms are synonymous. Your example is fine. :)

is there one in A Kiss Before Dying?

It's not a cliff exactly. Robert Wagner's character goes over the edge of a steep drop created as the result of copper strip mining. I guess you could call it an artificial cliff created by capitalism and copper! He pushes his first girlfriend off a tall building. I'm not aware of any other high structures in the film, but it's been several weeks since I last saw A Kiss Before Dying.
