Top Ten Most Suspenseful Movies

What movies kept you completely on the edge of your seat the whole time wondering what would happen next and left you walking out of the theater in a sweat.

The Top Ten

1 The Silence of the Lambs The Silence of the Lambs Product Image

A young F.B.I. cadet must confide in an incarcerated and manipulative killer to receive his help on catching another serial killer who skins his victims..

The best suspense movie I've ever seen. Anthony Hopikns acting really superb. He found saying' jodie foster that Lambs had stopped screaming finally is the highlight.

I love this movie but there is a movie that is right next to this one that I think everyone forgets about. Alien.

His acting was superb. However the last scene where the shootout takes place was perfect. Thumbs up

2 The Sixth Sense The Sixth Sense Product Image

A great one stays great after multiple viewings, sorry... ,this just doesn't cut it ( it was awesome 1st time... , I'm sick of the one-trick pony already, he should just produce movies, he's made enough from directing them

I think this is not an usual film. You need to watch. This is actually SUSPENSEFUL movie. This is little bit old but its OK it can full fill your need.

The sixth sense was a brilliant film. It didn't rely on gore, just suspense. It didn't blast me out my seat in fright, it just put me on the edge of it. Superb film.

Amazing acting, music, and graphics for anyone who wants to have their breath taken.

3 The Usual Suspects The Usual Suspects Product Image

The best suspense movie period have not seen one better. Not horror but seat of your pants mind testing movie that keeps you thinking for days. Even better the second time!

The best suspense movie ever made... Should be rated as number one in this list.

One of the brainiest movie ever made...Chk out the imdb trivia to know its brilliance in story telling..!

Best suspense thriller ever made in Hollywood

4 Seven Seven Product Image

Beautifully shot. The lighting and realistic gore effects for the victim scenes are very stylish. A slow build up to one of the best endings in cinematic history. Also Morgan Freeman should just voice over every movie.

Movie about serial killer with lot of emotions, that circle completed at climax.

"What's in the Box? "... Damn!

MORGAN, PITT, AND FINCHER... ALL THREE AT THEIR BEST.
NEVER DIE BEFORE SEE THIS MOVIE...

5 Saw Saw Product Image

This often gets classified as "horror, " but I don't think I agree with that. It is way more psychological. People talk about it being "so violent, " but they actually trick you into thinking you see more violence than you actually do in this original. Pretty brilliant and suspenseful movie.

Suspense at the end of every part of the series. Absolutely brilliant with some horror and outstanding real like violence. Thanks to those thoughtful writers for this awesome series with some useful message.

Forget the stupid sequels this is the original and the best. It is clever and suspenseful without relying on gore.

The electric feeling you get while you watch saw is unbelievable! From start to end you are on the edge of your seat!

6 Psycho Psycho   Product Image

Waiting for the end was almost scarier than the actual ending. Alfred Hitchcock knew just how to leave you horrified but at the same time wanting to see more. Excellent!

This movie is the most suspenseful thing I have seen in my life. R.I.P master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock

Definitely it's the greatest movie ever made! It's the "Mother" of the suspense movies! Q
