Top Ten Best Titles for Psychological Thrillers

Titles tell you a lot about the story. It has to capture the potential readers' attention. Some are already existing titles, others are what came to mind and one of them is the title of my own first penned novel.

if you think other titles might work better, feel free to add.

15 Illusion
16 Swans in the Bathroom
17 Misery
18 Locking Out the Visitor

This is a cleverly crafted tale, full of twists. SPOILER: the visitor is actually the good guy that everyone tries to keep away, when all the time, evil has crept in and is starting to cause untold mayhem... - Britgirl

The title tells the story of corrupt gatekeepers.

19 Mouth Sewn Shut

A tale of speaking truth to tyranny in a bizarre world ruled by evil, rabid children. Village Of The Damned meets Lord Of The Flies.

And in this story, the heroine is tricked into thinking she's the villain, when she's really the second victim. Pure evil.

In the middle of reading such a thriller now. Just wonder how it'll all turn out... - Britgirl

20 The Chav
21 Born To Die
22 Will You Marry Me?

What? This sounds like more of a rom-com than a psychological thriller. - Croy987

23 The Darkness Within
24 Catch Me If You Can
25 She's Never Coming Back
26 Black Knight of the Underground

A harrowing saga of running a tortuous gauntlet of hideous mutants, of zombies and goblins, gremlins and ghouls, brain-eating trolls and backbiting dwarves, all in the name of courtly devotion, damsel and all.

27 The Horse In My Garage

I'll go visit your friend and take him a copy of the book everyone's raving about: The Horse In My Garage... - Britgirl

Excerpt: "One word of caution, though, should you ever buy commercial worms. If you go into a backwoods gas station and find a large, rough-looking woman behind the cash register, don't ask, "Do you have worms? " My friend Retch Sweeney did that a while back. He should get out of his full-body cast any day now." - Patrick F. McManus
(A man after my own heart:).

28 The Train Full of Toast
29 Therapist

An original story idea by Tina H.W.
Scarred victims of sexual assault by a serial rapist are advised to seek help from a therapist, little knowing that their therapist is actually The-rapist...
A twist in the tale and a play on words
Decided not to further this story out of respect of rape victims.
However, if Peter James happens to be reading, he could, I'm sure, be able to write a more subtle version than mine. But I doubt it now, since I've given away the twist ending. Haha ;D - Britgirl

30 Look Behind You

Ohh...This goes well with another great addition to this list: Right Behind You. *Shivers* - Britgirl

31 Publish or Die!
