18 Psychological Thrillers You’ll Want to Watch Again Even If You Know the Ending

A really good thriller is hard to find, easy to miss, and impossible to forget. This selection is compiled of unforgettable movies. We made a volatile mix of Hollywood, European, and Asian cinematography for those who think that they’ve seen everything.

BrightSide responsibly declares that this article doesn’t have “regular” thrillers; they all were checked personally by our team and each of them has its own unique twist. Some have more drama and less action while others are the other way around. Some of them might seem too provocative, violent, or even heart-wrenching but we assure you that any movie from this list will break any stereotypes.

A controversial yet quite good noir thriller kicks off our list. Really great-looking waitress Annie works at a gloomy and desolate terminal station, but she’s only cute on the outside. In fact, she’s a daring woman who is leading a dangerous double life with 2 outlaws. For some viewers, the movie might seem cliché, cruel, or repetitive at some moments. But we can’t ignore the marvelous actors’ performance, an atmospheric neon style, and a plot with a curious twist.

Although this movie is meant to be a horror film, it will actually make you think more than it may scare you. However, there are times when you literally jump out of your seat from fear.

You’ll hardly find anyone who hasn’t heard about this Academy Award-winning movie by Jordan Peele. If you didn’t watch it because you don’t like horror movies, you need to fix this right now. A young African American man visits his ’s parents who hide an uncanny secret. The social subtext is pretty obvious and the plot might seem quite familiar. But this movie has a unique charm that was enhanced by the soundtrack, unexpected jokes, and a shocking finale. This movie is definitely worth watching even if it scares you with tiny details that are usually not scary at all.

The Handmaiden (Ah-ga-ssi), 2016

This Korean movie balances on the edge of a drama and an action-packed thriller. You don’t have to be an Asian cinematography enthusiast to appreciate The Handmaiden. There’s drama, comedy, passion, hate, pain, and pleasure. A con man called Count wants to make the Lady Hideko marry him. She lives in seclusion in a majestic mansion with her uncle. He plans to confirm that she’s crazy and take control over her wealth. To get closer to his “victim,” Count hires his friend Sook-Hee to serve as the lady’s handmaiden. Very soon, a simple story becomes so twisted and complicated that it’s not clear who’s the real puppeteer in this group.

He notices the unusual behavior of the director and the staff: it looks like they’re not of sound mind. Horrible cries that come from the basement arouse even more questions. The unbelievable ending makes you want to grab a cup of tea and watch it over and over again.

Every day, Rachel see a seemingly perfect couple from the train. But everything changes when she sees an announcement in the newspaper about the woman going missing. Rachel gets caught up in a complicated story because she was the only one who noticed something important from the train. This movie is a rare example when both critics and the audience couldn’t give a certain review. Some people think it’s a pretty ordinary thriller while others call it genius. But this gloomy and sad movie will definitely leave a lasting impression on anyone.

The Purge, 2013

This one is quite controversial and movie enthusiasts will find a couple of unkind words to say about it. But the plot is so original that it definitely makes the whole thing worth watching. The world of the future has neither crimes nor wars thanks to only one night a year when people can do whatever they want and not be punished for anything. It’s a bit of a cliche, but it’s also very intense and has an interesting subtext that you catch onto after some time.

Beast, 2017

A wonderful British fairytale for adults that will make your blood freeze. Moll (age 27) lives on a secluded island with her strict parents. The atmosphere of misunderstanding feels suffocating for her but one day, her life changes thanks to a new feeling of love. However, her man is under suspicion for the serial murders that recently happened on the island. Moll has to choose between her love and trust for Pascal and strict social rules. Some might consider this movie too but some may even consider that a good thing.

The Place, 2017

This film is cruel and merciful at the same time; it makes multiple surgical strikes on our way of thinking and has an intense spiral plot with new details appearing every minute. A man is sitting in a coffee house with a thick notebook on the table. People approach him to get what they want and he makes their dreams come true. There’s one condition: to fulfill any wish, you have to complete a task, the bigger your dream, the more complicated and dangerous the tasks are. No murders, visual effects, expensive settings — just a great idea, a thoroughly-written plot, and amazing conversations.

Lizzie, 2018

This movie just came out on September 14, 2018 in the US. We’re really intrigued by the story which is based on a legend. Lizzie Borden’s name has long become a household name thanks to the complicated story of her parents’ murder. During the well-known high-profile trial, the woman was acquitted and set free despite the undeniable evidence proving her guilty. The movie will definitely be cruel, intense, and provocative and that’s exactly what we need, right?

The Flash: Nora (Season 5 Episode 1) | Review

The Flash: Nora (Season 5 Episode 1) | Review

The Flash: Nora (Season 5 Episode 1)

The Flash Season 5 Episode 1, “Nora,” is not just a great start to the comic book series’ fifth season, it’s a bold, clear statement that the show is serious about getting back to the things we all once loved so much about it.

At its best, the show is bright and colorful, often managing to feel like a comic book panel from scene to scene. It’s funny, and silly and generally a great time to watch. Its villains run the gamut from the ridiculous to the terrifying. And it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

But what has always set the show apart from other genre properties on the air is its focus on the characters at its center.

No matter what was happening on The Flash, no matter how nonsensical the plots got or how overpowered the villains became, the relationships between Barry, Cisco, Caitlin, Iris and the rest of the rotating cast of Team Flash held the series together.

These are the people we keep tuning in to the show for. Not the over the top villains or nonsensical plot twists involving the Speed Force. That stuff’s nice, when it works.

But it’s not why we’re here.

“Nora” proves that when The Flash focuses on the characters and relationships at its core, there’s not a better superhero show on television right now.

And hopefully its existence means that the powers that be behind the scenes realize that too.

Yeah, there’s a villain of the week. But Gridlock is generally forgettable as a character in his own right, and important only in that his presence provides the reason Barry and his daughter-from-the-future Nora to work together.

Oh, and he introduces the mysterious figure that we can all assume will be this season’s Big Bad, Cicada.

But the main focus in the season premiere is squarely where it belongs: on the characters we love.

Nora West-Allen is adorable — effervescent and charmingly awkward, she seems a perfect blend of both of her parents. Her nickname is XS, not because she’s small, but because she’s so extra. Basically, she’s perfect.

And her arrival manages to spark a story that’s grounded completely in the characters we already know and love.

Because irony is dead, Barry’s freaking out about the fact that Nora’s presence could drastically change all their timelines.  (Seriously, him lecturing a n y o n e about messing with the time stream is beyond .)

Iris, for her part, is eager to get to know her daughter, plus the tiniest bit jealous that Nora has such an obvious and instant preference for Barry.

(See? This is the kind of character work I love. Yes, Iris is jealous, but it’s not a plot point shoved in for story’s sake. It’s just a realistic, extremely human reaction to a difficult situation.)

The fact that there’s a logical, character-driven reason for Nora’s behavior just makes things even better — and more heart-wrenching, in the end.

See, in her future, she never knew her father. Barry disappeared a few years after she was born, and she seems to have spent her entire life trying to live up the legend of this man she never knew.

Nora’s risking destroying her own time line just to spend a day with her father, and if that isn’t just the most Barry thing to do, I don’t know what is.

All this eventually culminates in a final showdown with Gridlock aboard a crashing airplane. The sequence is exciting and looks great, but the best part isn’t Cisco vibe-ing the team aboard a falling jet, or the three speedsters saving the day.

It’s Barry Allen, teaching his daughter to phase using the exact same words — complete with a flashback voiceover! — original recipe Harrison Wells told him.

The heart of this show is  — and always has been — the characters at its center, and the family they’ve created for themselves.

And if Season 5’s initial overarching mysteries (Nora, Barry’s disappearance, Caitlin’s resurrected father) are any indication, The Flash seems to have finally realized that that’s a feature, not a bug. Let’s hope so.

Stray Thoughts and Observations

  • Drunk!Cisco is too cute.
  • Bye again, Wally. I’m glad you at least got to say a proper farewell this time
  • It’s a relief that The Flash seems to be making Caitlin’s investigation into her past — and what we have to assume is her quest for her suddenly not-dead father — a priority this season. (But please don’t cram Ralph in there. Those two have next to zero relationship.)
  • Did Ralph’s brain fall out over the hiatus? I can kind of handwave him not knowing that Killer Frost is missing, given that he was trapped in The Thinker’s mind or however we’re explaining all that. But, are we honestly expected to believe that he spent an entire season working with a variety of folks from multiple Earths while portals opened everywhere and he just…what? Never noticed? Spare me.
  • Please everything let this show give me a Grodd and King Shark fight.
  • No one asked for Cecile to still have powers, is all I’m saying. [Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Director Was Energized By Thor: Ragnarok

X-Men: Dark Phoenix Director Was Energized By Thor: Ragnarok

From Guardians of the Galaxy to Avengers: Infinity War, the Cinematic Universe seems to be taking the superhero genre increasingly away from the old-fashioned archetype of street-level vigilantes, and up into the cosmic unknown. And according to director Simon Kinberg, the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix could be following suit.

During a panel at NYCC, Kinberg cited the interplanetary escapades of Thor: Ragnarok as a source of inspiration for next year’s X-Men sequel.

“[Dark Phoenix is] a movie that goes into space and is cosmic, very much inspired actually by what [Taika Waititi] did with Thor — even though the tone is totally different — but just the ability to make a character movie that still feels grounded, and fun, but is in whole other universes. Jessica Chastain’s character plays an alien, and that’s all I can tell you about that. But, yeah, it’s the Dark Phoenix story and if you’ve read that comic I think you’re going to like the movie a lot.”From Guardians of the Galaxy to Avengers: Infinity War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems to be taking the superhero genre increasingly away from the old-fashioned archetype of street-level vigilantes, and up into the cosmic unknown.

But, yeah, it’s the Dark Phoenix story and if you’ve read that comic I think you’re going to like the movie a lot.”

At this same panel, the longtime X-Men producer and writer also apologized for mistakes made in adapting the Dark Phoenix storyline for The Last Stand. Since that messily written 2006 film stayed pretty much earthbound, it does indeed sound like Kinberg will be trying something very different for this second attempt, though hopefully the film isn’t just trading a rehash of The Last Stand for an imitation of the MCU’s formula for success.

Previously, Kinberg has compared Dark Phoenix to last year’s highly character-driven Logan, arguing that the film will differ from the overcrowded Last Stand by placing Jean Grey and her dangerous alter ego as the focus of the story. For many a viewer, the Hugh Jackman-led movie served as a much-needed reminder that the X-Men universe was still capable of making us feel invested in its most frequently employed characters, and in the wake of the poorly received ­Apocalypse, this new movie could certainly stand to do the same favor for James McAvoy’s Xavier and his young peers.

We’ll see if X-Men: Dark Phoenix can live up to its influences when it hits theaters on June 7th, 2019.
