THIS IS STRICTLY BASED ON MY OPINION, SO KEEP CALM AND READ ON 🤘🤘🤘
I love some of every movie genre, but psychological thrillers are not a fave I must admit. I’ve expect that many of you have seen most but I’m just going to go over the ones I hated to love and loved to hate.
These are movies that I really enjoyed watching although I don’t expect everyone to agree. If you liked em too, let me know.
12 Rounds—Belko Experiment—Countdown Better Watch Out—The Call—Dark Water—Disturbing Behavior—Don’t Let Go—Gothika The Faculty—The Cell—Flightplan— TheGlass House—Invisible Man—Wish Upon Last House on Left—Law Abiding Citizen— Lonely Place to Die—No Good Deed—Orphan—Panic Room—Perfect Getaway—The Possession—Red Eye—Swimfan— TheVanishing—When a Stranger Calls— Ticking Clock—Wolves at the Door— American Psycho—American Psycho II
American Psycho is that one movie that I shouldn’t even have to describe because you should’ve totally seen it by now lol. Believe it or not, I enjoyed the sequel American Psycho II just as much with Mila Kunis.
Belko Experiment and Panic Room had those hide, kill and be killed vibes!
The Cell, Dont Let Go, and Ticking Clock literally gave us some weird sort of time travel as it allows us to see through the eyes of serial killers.
Meanwhile, The Vanishing and Gothika were more so think like with the mindset of a killer if you want to find me.
Disturbing Behavior was like the less popular version of The Faculty but oddly enough I’d say both were well done. They are the literal ‘High School from Hell’ films.
Flightplan had a kid go missing as if there's really many places to hide on a plane. And the film ticks you off because it makes you question if the mom is nuts. Meanwhile Red Eye too was in a plane but it didn't feel like it since she was trying to save people who werent even on the flight.
A Lonely Place to Die and The Call just showed how far an adult/stranger will go and possibly die to save a child.
The Possession and Wish Upon were brilliant with the pandora’s box schemes. However, I can't stand Joey King lol and She was just as annoying in this as in White House Down.
The Glass House was all “adopt a kid and get killer parents” while Orphan was more “adopt a kid and get reverse pedo-ism” and Dark Water went mostly ghostly with an “adopt me or your daughter dies” vibe.
Last House on the Left really gave the killers a taste of their own medicine.
Law Abiding Citizen, No Good Deed and 12 Rounds were all about revenge at its finest and being able to bring down the psycho in training.
Perfect Getaway I admit does start a bit meh, but the ending is unforgettable. I’ll never stop quoting this film. I mean, you have Three couples but which ones are the killers?
Swimfan, Misery, and The Invisible Man gave us the usual suspects aka obsessed stalkers.
Truth or Dare and Countdown were the “games you never want to play because you’ll surely die.”
When a Stranger Calls and Better Watch Out revived “babysitting from hell” themes.
Wolves at the Door is the not so funny ending to Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.
————THE NOT SO BAD————
I wouldn’t call these must-sees but I think they were worth watching more than once.
Disturbia—The Stepfather—Shutter Island Godsend—Whisper—Brightburn—The Forest Greta—The Roommate—Lady in the Water Premonition—I Know Who Killed Me—Twisted—Triangle—Ghost Ship—Uninvited Kiss the Girls—Fantasy Island
Disturbia and The Stepfather went all “prove me wrong” about the old man being a killer. Meanwhile, Shutter island actually proved me wrong about who the killer was.
Godsend was what wouldve happened if Orphan would’ve cloned the kid instead of adopting. Whisper was what would’ve happened had we kidnapped the kid instead of cloning/adopting. And well Brightburn was simply the kid Omen on red kryptonite. By the way anyone seen The Killing of a Sacred Deer? I’m curious to see it.
Greta showed us that Orphan wasn't the only old lady who can stalk like crazy. The Roommate was a stalker too but like a failed Swimfan or Single White Female.
Lady in the Water was some mythical shit is all i can say lol.
Premonition was one of those you get a do-over, everybody gets a do-over movies.
The Forest and I Know Who Killed Me both had sisters in search of their supposedly dead twins.
The Triangle, Fantasy Island, and Ghost ship just show that the ocean isn’t always pretty and vacation isn’t always fun.
Twisted was a lesson for hoes to stop hoeing and Kiss the Girls showed that some people will snatch you up for no good reason
The Uninvited wasn’t as bad as Sucker Punch and actually made you wish you were in Sucker Punch just so you didn't have to deal with one person having multiple personalities.
One Hits I No Longer Care to Wonder About
I’m about to name a few films that were popular and a few you probably never even heard of. But these totally ticked me off for either being really sucky, really creepy, really weird or really harsh with dark endings..
Abandon—The Box—Black Swan—Brake— Buried—The Captive—Donnie Darko—Frozen Get Out—Gone Girl—Hide & Seek—Inception Lakeview Terrace—Joker—The Others—Open Water—Prisoners—Perfect Guy—Phone Booth—Pulse—Split—The Tall Man— Shining—The Tortured—When Bough Break
Abandon had Katie Holmes horrible acting, a very predictable ending, and well Benjamin Bratt and Charlie Hunnam deserved better.
The Box was confusing and pissed me off with its horrible cliffhanger ending like Prisoners which along with The Tall Man really made the amber alert system look really jacked up. Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, and Jessica Biel should just stick to romcoms while Terrence Howard and Hugh Jackman aren't as interesting when playing “good guys”.
The Captive and The Tortured had potential but turned into some weird pedo crap with twisted endings.
Black Swan, Hide & Seek, and the Joker were the annoyingly weird with the bipolar split personality mess, but thankfully not as boring as Split.
Buried was one of those too little too late shits and Brake was its failed copycat with an even more jacked up ending.
Donnie Darko and The Shining were on another level of weird shit that I dont even want to understand.
Frozen and Open Water literally made me want to off them before the wolves and sharks did because it was just that boring.
Get Out and Lakeview Terrace showed us the potential horrors of interracial relationships and were overrated af.
Gone Girl and the Others had good twists but were longer than they should’ve been and the endings made me want to crawl up in a ball after wasting my time. Plus I can’t stand seeing someone be falsely accused.
Inception was the Doctor Strange I never needed.
The Perfect Guy and When the Bough Breaks were horrible attempts at combining Obsessed with The Hand that Rocks the Cradle. Im just sorry Morris Chestnut stooped so low to take part in both.
Pulse was just bad. Really, really bad...
