Wes Craven himself in this interview agrees that the first film is "more of a thriller."
Since all the films are pretty much identical in content, I think it would only be fair to have all of them listed as thrillers.
This is of no importance whatsoever when it comes to deciding the genre a title should have on IMDb. Elizabeth has linked to IMDb's definitions of the genres IMDb currently has. Do the titles you are talking about fit the definitions? This is the only question.
Fair? Why would it be fair if one might not be a thriller and other ones are? This kind of reasoning is not useful at all in this matter.
But this is the director of the film. If he says it's a thriller, his intentions were clear and those intentions show in the film.
And also, not other films in the same franchise.
How is The Ring any less of a thriller than its sequels?
It's rare that a sequel not be the same genre as its predecessor and this is not one of those rare instances.
The movies I am talking about fit the IMDb definition perfectly.
