Poll Suggestion: The Best 2010s Psychological Thriller

These films showed us characters suffering huge breakdowns and as a viewer, we were sucked right into their crumbling worlds along with them. Tense, provoking, mind-bending; these are the best psychological-thriller films of the 2010s.

Which of these 2010s psychological thrillers are you most likely to remember?

Suggesting:
  • Maniac (2012) (even though it can never compare to the original)

These are great suggestions (considered the first two early on) but where I’m stuck is figuring out whether or not to include films that are predominantly horror-based.

It’s tough because films like Split, Get Out and the Babadook would be popular but might err on the Horror side more than I’d want, deviating away from a “thriller”.

What do you think Groove? Does the current list stay mostly away from horror? If I’ve already listed a few horror-heavy films in my list, I have no problem adding these ^

Split (2016) probably merits a spot. According to Wikipedia, "Split is a 2016 American psychological horror thriller film written, co-produced and directed by M. Night Shyamalan[4] and starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Betty Buckley."

I was nice to see the low-budget indie, Frozen (I) (2010) on the list. I liked how it played on every skier's worst fear.

You're definitely right Urbane. It's been added - and yes! Frozen was awesome; totally makes you want to stay away from the slopes.
