5 Gothika
6 Twisted Nerve
7 When a Stranger Calls
8 The Boy

Very good movie

This movie is well known, critically acclaimed and has an Oscar winning performance... is it really underrated? - Martin_Canine

10 Sorry, Wrong Number

A wonderful claustrophobic thriller with the magnificent Barbara Stanwyck. - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 Duel
12 Tenebre
13 Frailty

One of the best movies of the early 00s. Great twist, excellent Bill Paxton performance. Shame he didn't direct more than a couple of films. - truckturner

Starring Bill Paxton & Matthew McConaughey. This deserves more than 7.3. Should've gotten 7.8 Its quite underrated. - zxm

14 Gone Baby Gone

Got 7.7 on IMDb but I don't hear much about this movie. - zxm

15 Bound
16 Don't Bother to Knock
17 The Spiral Staircase
18 This Gun for Hire
19 The Wrong Man
20 I Confess
21 Primal Fear
22 The Last House on the Left (1972)
23 Memories of Murder

More likely crime/mystery/drama than thriller. But it has thrilling moments. It may be famous as a Korean movie but internationally not very famous. - zxm

24 Sliver
25 Scissors
26 10 to Midnight
27 Dead Calm
28 The Forgotten

Best thriller movie I have ever seen. it shocks you and is a bigger jaw dropper then the 6th sense ever will.
