Your Favorite Thrillers?

(1/12) > >>

Just saw 10 Cloverfield Lane and Midnight Special both exceptionally good films and I love them. I was looking around to see if I could find any more new similar thrillers, found a couple that look EXCEPTIONALLY good!!! Any more suggestions?




POST YOUR NEW & OLD FAVORITE THRILLERS!!!! :bravo: :) :waving: :rofl:

Jeremy Blackman:

I'm not a thriller connoisseur or anything, but...

NEW: Based on your picks, I highly recommend The Invitation.

OLD: Haven't seen it, but apparently The Taking of Pelham One Two Three (1974) is an amazing thriller.

Just a quick list of really good ones and ones that embody the genre well.

No Country for Old Men
Mulholland Drive
Perfect Blue
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
Memories of Murder
Drive/Only God Forgives
The Conversation
Major and minor Fincher movies (Seven, The Game, Fight Club, Panic Room, Zodiac, TGWTDT, Gone Girl)
The Ghost Writer
Children of Men
High and Low
The Silence of the Lambs
The Raid (2)

Lots of genre crossover (I guess I'm not too sure what a thriller is).

This could also be used as my response to the Taste/Perspective topic,
(if "vicious satire" aligns with "thriller" in any way)

Battle Royale, Godard's Weekend, The Boss of it All, this scene:

When I think thriller, I generally tend to think of horror movies that have a heavy sense of atmosphere, suspense, psychological fear and/or are disturbing; but really a thriller can belong to any genre so long as the film contains those qualities in spades.

Some movies which somewhat fit the bill:

* The Orphanage
* Orphan
* Compliance
* Eyes Wide Shut
* Side Effects
* A Tale of Two Sisters
* A Simple Plan
