62+ Best Psychological Thrillers

Psychological thrillers are movies filled with suspense that force viewers to question the reality of what they are seeing.

Vertigo (1958) is one of the best psychological thrillers ever made.

Psychological thrillers are a movie genre defined by suspense and unreliable narrators. As the story is most often told from the point of view of a human protagonist, they (and thus the audience) are vulnerable to being misled by things like mental illness, drugs, gaslighting, supernatural phenomena, brain injury, etc. In a psychological thriller, suspense is driven by the gap between what the narrator/audience knows and what is actually happening in the “reality” of the story. This means it is common for psychological thrillers to have a twist-ending when these two points of view converge.

Psychological thrillers are a good middle ground for viewers who want to watch something lightly scary or a scary movie without much gore and horror fans who just want something suspense heavy. In comparison to other genres, psychological horror movies will be more focused on the intent to frighten than psychological thrillers, and psychological dramas will lack the suspense of a psychological thriller. Murder mysteries are a common form of psychological thriller as are movies about “insane asylums”.

Old Psychological Thrillers

M (1931)

Though starting his career in German-language films, Peter Lorre would go on to become a big name in Hollywood with hits like The Maltese Falcon (1941) and Casablanca (1942).

Some consider M to be the “blueprint for the psychological thriller”. It is the first sound film by legendary German Expressionist director Fritz Lang. Peter Lorre portrays Hans Beckert, a child killer and implied pedophile who rains terror throughout Berlin during a string of unprecedented child abductions and slayings. When the local police prove to be too corrupt and inept to find the killer, Berlin’s criminal underworld joins forces to catch him. In the film’s most compelling scene, when Hans is dragged before a kangaroo court in an abandoned warehouse, he begs the assembled thieves and racketeers for mercy because he is ruled by impulses over which he has no control.

Gaslight (1944)

Ingrid Bergman portrays a woman whose new husband slowly convinces her she is insane.

Gaslight is a psychological thriller famous for inspiring the noun “gaslighting” to describe the sustained act of making someone question their perception of reality via psychological manipulation. Credit for this should realistically go to the 1938 play Gas Light which is the basis for a 1940 British film Gaslight, which predates the American version by four years. However, Gaslight (1944) is the most well known reference point for what gaslighting means.

Ingrid Bergman portrays Paula Alquist, the niece of famous opera-singer Alice Alquist, who marries Gregory Anton (Charles Boyer) after a two-week romance. The newlyweds movie into Alice’s townhouse in London where Gregory slowly isolates Paula from the outside world. He manipulates her by hiding things and claiming her memory is poor when Paula can’t find them. The film gets its name from Gregory dimming the home’s gaslights and then claiming Paula is crazy when she describes the gaslights being dimmed. Eventually, Paula becomes convinced that she is losing her mind.

Rear Window (1954)

Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly in Rear Window (1954)
The entire courtyard and apartments at which James Stewart’s character watched his neighbors was built on one massive set.

A psychological thriller about voyeurism, Rear Window sees L. B. “Jeff” Jeffries (James Stewart) as a photographer who is using a wheelchair after breaking his leg at work. Amid a sweltering Greenwich Village summer, Jeff passes the time by looking out the rear window of his small apartment and spying on his neighbors. His girlfriend (Grace Kelly) visits him and the two come to believe that one of Jeff’s neighbors is a murderer.

Les Diaboliques (1955)

Les Diaboliques (1955)
Alfred Hitchcock missed out on acquiring the rights to make Les Diaboliques by just a few hours. The writers then wrote an original story with Hitchcock in mind and it became Vertigo (1958).

Michel Delassalle is a school principal who is widely despised due to his abusive and domineering nature. He is cruel to both his wife Christina (who is actually the breadwinner in their relationship) and his mistress Nicole. Together Christine and Nicole hatch a plan to kill Michel and take over the school. They believe they have a foolproof plan, but at some point while carrying out the crime, Michel’s body goes missing.

Vertigo (1958)

Despite being a commercial failure when it first came out in 1958, Vertigo is widely considered one of the best Hitchcock films.

This Hitchcock film can be found near the top of many critics’ “Greatest Movies of All Time” lists. James Stewart stars as John “Scottie” Ferguson, a San Francisco police detective who has retired prematurely due to his fear of heights. He is hired by his wealthy college acquaintance Gavin Elster (Tom Helmore) to track Gavin’s wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). Against his better judgment, Scottie falls deeply in love with Madeleine. When she disappears, Scottie reluctantly moves on to a working-class woman named Judy and tries to sculpt into the spitting image of Madeleine.

The Housemaid (1960)

Lee Eun-shim, who played Myung-sook, was so reviled due to audiences associating her with her character in The Housemaid that she was never hired as an actress again.

In South Korea during the years following the Korean War, Mr. Kim is a piano teacher who gives lessons to workers in a local factory. His wife works from home at a sewing machine, but she is pregnant with their third child. Mr. Kim hires his piano student, Myung-sook, to live with the family and help with domestic labor during his wife’s pregnancy. Instead, Myung-sook reveals herself as a femme fatale that drives the family apart.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane is an example of a “psycho biddy”, a horror subgenre about women whose mental state has deteriorated with age. Other examples of psycho biddy films are Dead Ringer (1964), Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964) and X (2022).

Legendary American actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford co-starred in this creepy psychological thriller about two aging sisters living together in a Hollywood mansion. Bette Davis is “Baby Jane” Hudson, a former child actress whose stardom was eclipsed by her younger sister, Blanche (Joan Crawford). Blanche’s career was then cut short because of a car accident (likely caused by Jane’s alcoholism) that resulted in Blanche needing to use a wheelchair. Still resenting her younger sister, Jane becomes Blanche’s sadistic “caregiver,” cutting her off from outside communication and cruelly torturing her while she plans a far-fetched Hollywood comeback.

Taxi Driver (1976)

Robert De Niro spent 15-hour days driving taxis to prepare for the role.

In a role that cemented his status as one of Hollywood’s finest actors, Robert De Niro stars as Travis Bickle, a lonely Vietnam War vet who takes a job as a nighttime taxi driver to deal with his insomnia. He focuses his romantic attention on a pretty young presidential-campaign assistant named Betsy (Cybill Shepherd), but Travis is so socially inept that he sees nothing wrong with taking her to see a hardcore porno movie on their first date. When Betsy rejects him, Travis is crushed. He also suffers a mental breakdown which convinces him that he is a noble warrior who must “wash all the scum off the streets.” He befriends an underage prostitute named Iris (Jodie Foster) and makes it his mission to rescue her from Manhattan’s seedy underbelly—no matter how much blood he has to spill.

Cape Fear (1991)

Robert De Niro as Max Cady laughs and smokes in a movie theater in Cape Fear (1991).
Director Martin Scorsese was actually unsettled by De Niro in character as Max Cady, so De Niro would leave messages on Scorsese’s answering machine in character to freak him out.

In one of his most disturbing roles ever, Robert De Niro stars as Max Cady, a sadistic rapist who’s recently been released from prison after serving 14 years for the rape of a young girl. But Max has been seething with anger the entire time because he feels his public defender, Sam Bowden (Nick Nolte), withheld crucial evidence that could have kept him out of prison. With chiseled muscles and a burning hatred, Max sets out to terrorize Sam and his family, especially his young daughter (Juliette Lewis). Martin Scorsese directed this remake of the 1962 classic starring Robert Mitchum as Max Cady and Gregory Peck as Sam Bowden.

Copycat (1995)

Harry Connick Jr. as a sadistic killer in Copycat.

An expert on criminal psychology, Dr. Helen Hudson (Sigourney Weaver), narrowly escapes an attack by one of her subjects, serial killer Daryll Lee Cullum (Harry Connick Jr.). Afterwards she becomes agoraphobic, locked in her apartment and visiting the outside world only through the internet. Police call on Dr. Hudson for help with a new string of unsolved murders, a copycat killer who begins stalking her.

Seven (aka Se7en, 1995)

Movie fans have long debated which genre Se7en falls into. A good argument can be made that it is a detective movie, a crime thriller, a mystery film, a psychological thriller and/or a “perfect” horror movie.

Jaded detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) has seen it all and is ready to retire. Rookie detective David Mills (Brad Pitt) has all of the enthusiasm and lack of experience necessary not to be as jaded as his partner Somerset. When the two of them are assigned to solve the case of a new serial killer known only as “John Doe” (Kevin Spacey), they start to realize that he is dispatching victims based on their perceived violation of the seven deadly sins. David Fincher directed this film with a unique twist: the shocking third act takes place after the detectives arrest the killer.

Perfect Blue (1997)

Perfect Blue (1997).
Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky is a big fan of Perfect Blue, and he paid homage to the film in Requiem for a Dream (2000) in the scene where Jennifer Connelly’s character screams in a bathtub. While he denies that it was an inspiration for Black Swan (2010) there are many similarities between the two films.

Former pop star Mima slowly loses her grip on reality while pursing a new career as an actress. Told from Mima’s (unreliable) perspective, this psychological thriller directed by Satoshi Kon is about identity as it relates to performers and the people who watch (and obsess over) them. At times Perfect Blue can feel like a giallo in the vein of Tenebrae (1982), while at other times it has been compared to Alfred Hitchcock’s work and his ability to build incredible psychological tension around a central character.

The Game (1997)

David Fincher shelved this movie in order to make Se7en (1995) when Brad Pitt agreed to star. He returned to the project after completing Se7en.

Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas) is an exceedingly wealthy San Francisco investment banker who is so isolated and unhappy that he spends his 48th birthday alone, obsessing over the fact 48 was the age his father was when he died by suicide. When his younger and less inhibited brother Conrad (Sean Penn) comes into town, he gives Nicholas a gift for “the man who has everything”—a ticket to Consumer Recreation Services, a company that designs games tailored to the needs of “whatever is lacking” in the recipient’s life. Nicholas agrees to play, but he slowly starts to suspect that he may have been set up for an elaborate scheme to rob him of his wealth.

Fight Club (1999)

 Writer Chuck Palahniuk wrote Fight Club after he was beaten by men on a camping trip because they were unhappy he asked them to turn their music down. He later said he liked the film more than his book.

An unnamed narrator (Edward Norton) is a frustrated office worker fed up with his boring middle class life. Although he doesn’t have cancer, he attends cancer support groups where he meets Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), who also attends these groups and also doesn’t have cancer. On a plane while presumably returning from a business trip, the narrator meets a charismatic soap salesman named Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) who invites him to join a local club where men rediscover joie de vivre through bare-knuckle boxing. The fight club grows to the point where it becomes a beast that’s out of their control and Marla slowly shifts her affections away from the narrator toward Tyler.

The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)

Leonardo DiCaprio declined the role of Tom Ripley, and Matt Damon was hired instead.

Set in 1958, a wealthy man mistakes Tom Ripley for a Princeton classmate of his son Dickie (Jude Law). He pays Tom to travel to Italy and convince his son to come home. However, when Tom meets Dickie and his girlfriend Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow), he decides he would rather stay and vacation with them. Tom’s uncanny ability to lie and imitate others allows him to social climb and avoid detection as an imposter.

New Psychological Thrillers

Memento (2000)

Christopher Nolan directed this movie based on a story by his brother, Jonathan Nolan.

Leonard Shelby (Guy Pearce) is a former insurance investigator with severe short-term memory loss he sustained from a head injury while trying to intervene in the murder of his wife. In fact, the last thing he remembers was his wife’s murder. Vowing to avenge her death, he finds that his chief enemy is his memory loss—he must take Polaroids of things and scribble endless notes to himself so that he doesn’t forget everything upon going to sleep. Leonard is aided in his quest for revenge by a man named Teddy (Joe Pantoliano), but Leonard begins to suspect that Teddy’s intentions may not be pure.

Donnie Darko (2001)

Donnie Darko (2001)
One reason Donnie Darko was such a sleeper hit is that the studio made the decision not to advertise it much as the plot featured a (partial?) plane crash and was released theatrically only a month and a half after 9/11.

In director Richard Kelly’s surreal cult classic, Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the title role as a mentally ill teenager who has trouble relating to nearly everyone in his life. He begins having visions of a giant rabbit named Frank who tells him the world will end in 28 days. Donnie befriends a new girl at school, Gretchen (Jena Malone), and becomes increasingly disturbed as his encounters with Frank increase.

One Hour Photo (2002)

Robin Williams check his smile in a mirror in One Hour Photo (2002).
Jack Nicholson was originally offered the role that would eventually go to Robin Williams.

Robin Williams portrays Sy Parrish, an intensely lonely middle-aged man who works as a lab technician at a one-hour photo store in a suburban mall. He forms a delusional parasocial relationship with the Yorkin family, especially matriarch Nina (Connie Nielsen) and her adolescent son Jake (Dylan Smith), who routinely drop off their film to Sy for developing. What they don’t know is that ever since Jake was a baby, Sy has been obsessively tracking the family by making duplicates of all their photos and keeping them for himself. When Sy uncovers some unsavory information about Nina’s husband Will Yorkin (Michael Vartan), he appoints himself a holy crusader aiming to right all that’s wrong with the family.

The Memory of a Killer (2003)

Roger Ebert summarizes the plot’s hook: “He is a contract killer who knows he is losing his mind.”

Released in Germany as De zaak Alzheimer (The Alzheimer Case), this action psychological thriller revolves around an aging hit man with early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The job of an assassin requires focus and skill, and his deteriorating psychological health have deadly consequences. This film was remade in English as Memory (2022) with Liam Neeson starring.

Though director Brad Anderson hadn’t asked Christian Bale to lose weight for the role, Bale showed up to set having lost 62 pounds.

Trevor Reznik (Christian Bale) is a lathe operator at a local factory who hasn’t slept in a full year and is growing gaunt and emaciated as a result. Like the character in Memento, he is also tormented by memory loss and is constantly scribbling little yellow notes to himself. As Trevor tortures himself for no apparent reason, he slowly is able to look himself in the mirror and realize exactly what happened that has made him lose sleep for so long.

Hard Candy (2005)

Hayley’s red hoodie was changed from orange in post-production.

Hide and Seek‘s monster twist-ending reveals why this film falls into the psychological thriller category.

Bug (2006)

In Bug, Michael Shannon reprises his role from the stage production of the same name.

Directed by William Friedkin (director of The Exorcist), Bug sees Ashley Judd as Agnes, a lonely waitress living in a run-down motel. Agnes forms a desperate relationship with a disturbed drifter named Peter (Michael Shannon), and the two of them fall into an increasingly delusional headspace of government conspiracies and bug infestations as they isolate themselves in Agnes’s room. Bug is claustrophobic and disturbing, and it isn’t talked about enough as a gem of mid-2000s psychological weirdness.

Shutter Island (2010)

David Fincher, who has many psychological thrillers already on this list, was considered for director, but Martin Scorsese got the job.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Teddy Daniels, a World War II veteran who is psychologically scarred by his experience helping liberate the Dachau concentration camp as well as the loss of his wife in a fire.

Trapped, Teddy finds the asylum’s psychiatric staff are treating him more like a patient than a visiting detective.

Take Shelter (2011)

Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain starred in Take Shelter.

Michael Shannon’s performance is stunning in this psychological thriller about a man, Curtis, who has premonitions about a coming super storm. While he believes in his visions and takes actions to protect his family, Curtis doesn’t share his reasoning with his wife because his mother was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia when she was his age. Curtis’ actions and secrecy isolate him from his family, friends and community.

Nightcrawler (2014)

Lou becomes obsessed, going farther than any sane photojournalist would to get footage of a triple-homicide home invasion and the ensuing arrest of the perpetrators.

Gone Girl (2014)

Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl (2014)
Reese Witherspoon was originally set for the role of Amy but realized she wasn’t the right fit after speaking with director David Fincher. The role then went to Rosamund Pike (pictured).
