Netflix’s Top 10 Psychological Thrillers Right Now

N

We challenge you to look beyond romantic comedies and lighthearted comedy when this week’s movie night comes around. Instead, turn to Netflix’s array of psychological thrillers to add a little suspense to your evening. Toast the popcorn and enjoy a glass of wine or tea.

Enjoy trendy movies like Bird Box or suspenseful films like Fractured, which has a sinister plot.

For adrenaline and intrigue, tune in to these ten psychological thrillers we think are the best on Netflix.

American Crime Story (2016)

F.X.’s award-winning miniseries about O.J. was born. Simpson’s murder trial was the story that changed America. F.X. also aired a second season on the murder of Gianni Versace. Would you mind taking a moment to watch the cast of killers and compare them to their real-life counterparts? Then, pause and rewind to see how they look. And be ready for Cuba Gooding Jr. to return. Versace’s edition is equally impressive with a stellar cast.

Fractured (2019).

This Netflix Original movie features a man’s wife, and his child, who disappear from the hospital following a roadside accident. Multiple doctors examine them, and they even go to the basement to take imaging. However, there is no record of their visit, and the protagonist believes the hospital may be illegally harvesting organs. Fractured stars Sam Worthington and Lily Rabe.

Dirty John (2018)

Dirty John is based on the 2017 Longform Article by The Los Angeles Times. It also features a podcast. Dirty John recounts the grueling story of Eric Bana, a serial grouser, and the woman he is trying to target (Connie Britton). It follows the podcast’s arc reasonably closely. Although it is hard to believe, each twist makes the truth seem more unbelievable. Bana and Britton add a human touch to every absurd detail.

Bird Box (2018)

Bird Box says that you will die if you confront a mysterious force. Sandra Bullock plays a woman who sets out to find refuge in this post-apocalyptic thriller with her children. They will canoe blindfolded through turbulent rivers and dangerous woods in search of safety.

You (2018)

Sometimes you want to see a film more than a television show. If you are still looking for something high-octane, then we suggest You. This series is about Penn Badgley’s psychotic character, who obsesses on his love interests to devastating and violent ends.

The Devil All the Time (2020).

Antonio Campos directs this American crime drama. It is pretty violent and not for everyone. The film follows a group of sinister characters from Ohio, including an unholy preacher and serial-killing couple. It also features a corrupt sheriff. This film features many familiar faces, from Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland.

The Haunting of Bly Manor (2020).

A young American nanny got the task of caring for two children whose au pairs have just died. But all is not as it seems. Is she losing it all, or is there some supernatural happening at the English manor? This second installment of the series, The Haunting of Hill House, is based on the ghost stories of Henry James. It brings more mind games to the screen.

Dare me(2019-2020).

Dare Me is a 10-part series about high school cheerleaders that aired in the USA. It focuses on how they become embroiled in dark secrets when a former cheer coach comes in to take control of their team. Although it may sound a bit P.G., don’t let the simple plot fool your eyes: Dare Me is bonafide madness. This is not a Bring It On-style “Big Red stole Clovers’ routine” scandal. There’s infidelity, obsession, and even murder. The show sometimes veers too far into drama territory, but that’s because it’s that soapy teen show that’s so outrageous it’s worth watching. We can assure you that this show will have you rooting for it.

Dangerous Lies (2020).

This one is for Riverdale lovers. Camilla Mendes plays a waitress, newly unemployed, who accepts a job as a caregiver for a wealthy older man. A web of lies and deceit unravels when he unexpectedly dies and leaves his inheritance to her.

Mindhunter (2017)

This series is a must-see for fans of psychological thrillers. Mindhunter is directed by David Fincher, who also directed Gone Girl (and Zodiac), and is based on actual events. It follows two FBI agents using behavioral analysis to track down the most dangerous serial killers in America.
