Top Ten Psychological Thrillers of All timeroblist
The Top Ten
This was the first horror movie I ever saw and it is still my favorite. The point of it is to get under your your skin (literally), and I've seen it at least three times and it still manages to freak me out. I love it.
Nothing beats it. Especially the heart-racing aura generated by Hopkins. Not to mention Foster's exquisite performance as a trainee FBI agent getting psychoanalyzed by a ruthless serial killer. - deltaop007
Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster are so amazing in this movie, it is so great watching these two in this movie
This is very clever. Thomas Harris very cleverly wrote this story about Clarisse Starling and her fight to face her demons, with the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
"Have the lambs stopped screaming, Clarisse? "
Really chilling and intelligent.
The book offers more than the film though. Go read! - Britgirl
The first time viewing this movie is a true cinematic pleasure. This is a true psychological film that really messes with your mind and makes you question what's reality and what's not. I've seen this film so many times and I always enjoy how brilliantly created it is. One of my favourite films of all time for sure.
Mind Blowing this movie is really great it keeps you on the edge of your seat through out the whole movie
The only movie that really played on my mind. What to believe and what not to believe. Brilliant film.

What happened to the greatest thriller of all time? Why not higher up? - Beatlesboy9
I've had a strange, nagging feeling for a long time, that although without question, this is the best psychological thriller of all time, something wasn't quite right in the film; an error, a discrepancy that has played on my mind...Well I figured it out. Near the beginning, whilst Annie is giving Paul a shave, she says, and I quote: "The Misery novels - I know 'em all by heart. All eight of 'em. I love them so." Well.. that set my mind racing to a scene further on. Remember when Paul uses Annie's hairpin to unlock the door of his bedroom whilst Annie has gone to the store to buy some "non-smudge" writing paper for him? He wheels his chair around her sitting room and just after knocking a ceramic penguin from the table, he spots a signed framed photo of himself, surrounded by over SIXTEEN Misery novels (a definite nine of which are to the right of the picture) There are more to the left but it's difficult to see exactly how many there are. You would think that his "Number One Fan" ...more - Britgirl
The best psychological thriller that has been written. With only two main characters, the suspense is kept going throughout and not once falls flat. Kathy Bates is superb as Annie Wilkes; depressed, unhinged "number one fan" of writer Paul Sheldon.
I believe this was James Caan's most trying role, since an active actor, had to remain immobile for a lot of the film.
Incredible story by Stephen King, incredible acting by Kathy Bates and James Caan and just an incredible film. - Britgirl
One of the perfect example of epic direction by nolan. If this movie was told in chronological order, there was absolutely nothing. But the way it is now makes it the best movie in this list
Loved how Christopher Nolan rearranged all the scenes. Fantastic filmmaking. Two thumbs up!
This movie deserves more credit, its absolutely a masterpiece
It is a movie very entertaining, a bit psychological but hey we are not begginers in movies...
Psycho is a classic and should be remembered throughout Hollywood history!
Should Be Number 1 - BeatlesFan1964
Yes it will be remembered as bollywood also copies it.
SAW definitely deserves to be in top 10... I still get those eerie feelings when I hear JIGSAW say... "I WANNA PLAY A GAME"... I wish there was a 8th part too...
The ending of the very first Saw shook my bones and made my blood run cold.
Amazingly clever concept by the writer. This film makes you think about your life and how you live it. It makes you appreciate the small things in life.
Having said this, sadly the sequels fell flat and became repetitive and predictable. - Britgirl
Robert De Niro's finest hour. Max Cady is so terrifying. - Britgirl
Love the concept of infusing the tale of Swan Lake with a girl's sexuality and descent to madness in search of perfection. The symbolism was great.
I watched this last night in bed. I was a little disappointed to be honest, especially after hearing such great reviews about it. If it's on T.V. again and I'm not doing more anything interesting like...oh, I don't know...dying, then I may watch it from behind my eyelids as it's the best viewing angle.
It's OK at best.
AND WHY THE HECKY-PECK ISN'T STEPHEN KING'S MISERY IN THE TOP TEN?! Unbelievable... - Britgirl
How could Rebecca DeMornay be scary? - BeatlesFan1964
Highly underrated thriller! Colin Farrell at it's best!
One of the best psychological thrillers. This is joel schmacher's best work! It's a must watch
The movie was so suspenseful. I was on the edge of of my seat the entire time. Great direction and acting
Heath Ledger Was Fantastic! - BeatlesFan1964
Why sooo Serious?
This film is the best thriller movie ever before, but iam more like SCREM4 than this film.
I Now Like M Night Shymalan Again Because Of This Movie - JPK
I can't belive it's not on the list!
