20 Best Psychological Thriller Movies on Netflix Watch Instantly January 2014

Netflix Logo

If you’re like me and you like movies that make you think or mess with your mind, then you might enjoy some of the movies on this list.  Of all of the so-called Psychological Thrillers that are currently available on Netflix Watch Instantly, the movies on this list are the best ones, in my opinion.

I have not reviewed many of the movies that are on this list, but if any of the titles are highlighted, then click on that title for a trailer, movie pictures, my rating, and my full review of that movie.  If you like what you see, check out the rest of my website.  As I review more films, I will add more links to this list.


These movies are mind-benders.  They are mysterious, twisted, and darkly intense.  Some are much better than others, but all will keep your mind entertained as you piece together what is happening on screen.

  1. Like your list! The only one I’d add is ‘The Machinist’ with Christian Bale. I forgot about ‘Following’. Must get around to seeing that! 🙂

    • I would certainly have The Machinist on there, Cindy, but it’s no longer available on netflix watch instantly, unfortunately. I picked the best currently available on the Netflix Watch Instantly library. Thanks for commenting : )

  2. The Traveler with Val Kilmer is a good one.

  3. I would add The secret window in there, that one had me thinking about it all the way through with a great plot twist at the end!

  4. i would add The Hole (the on made in 2001)
