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

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.

2 The Sixth Sense

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

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.

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.

3 The Usual Suspects

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..!

4 Seven

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.

5 Saw

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.

6 Psycho

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!

Definitely the first movie that came to mind. This movie IS suspense.

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

7 Jaws

For the time, this was absolutely the definitive suspense.

Let's be honest...
at some point in life,
we're ALL gonna need a bigger boat.

Silence of the lamps ahead of jaws You people have no taste at all this is ridiculous

8 Fight Club

Awesome movie... Edward nortan rocks... Superb acting by brat pit to... Must watch movie...

The Contenders
11 Mute Witness

Love. This. Movie. Very scary and sick. Should be remade with a larger budget - but then again they'd probably ruin it.

One of the best suspense movies ever! Keeps me looking for anything as good.

12 The Thing

More frightening and edge of your seat than every film on this list combined.

My absolute favorite horror movie of all time. It's suspensfel and scary.

13 Scream

It is so suspenful I could not figure who was the killer because almost everyone was guilty. This should so be #1 by far.

Funny as well as suspenseful.. Also a thriller.. It's all combined

14 Shutter Island

This is one of those dark movies which messes with your mind, and it also manages to keep you on the edge of the seat till the very end. Finally the ending is just awesome, this movie is a treat for psychological thriller lovers. I'd definitely recommend you to watch it if you haven't, it'll be worth it.

Dame good movie, had to watch it twice, and going to watch it again soon.

What the hell! I can't believe this awesome movie is pushed out of top 10... Mind boggling
