Lou, a photojournalist played by Gyllenhaal, discovers he has an affinity for recording horrific crimes. To his amazement, his videos command a high price on the social and economic fronts. Naturally, you’ll become desensitised to death and destruction if you experience them frequently.
This is what happens to Lou. The movie makes a startling discovery about human nature, showing how ambition may combine with physical and emotional aggression, leading to complete devastation. One of the top thrillers on Netflix right now is Nightcrawler.

IMDB Rating: 7.8/10
It depicts the eight strangers who, perhaps after the American Civil War, seek shelter from a blizzard in a stagecoach rest area. The energies of good and evil are combined in a pressure cooker as the snow begins to fall. As the hidden motives of some of the residents come to light, personalities clash and lives are tested. The Hateful Eight is a tightly-knit siege thriller that serves as a spiritual sequel to Django Unchained.
Genre : Action/Drama Thriller
Cast : Felix Kammerer, Albrecht Schuch, Aaron Hilmer
IMDB Rating : 7.8/10
In the most recent adaptation, Felix Kammerer plays Paul Bäumer, a young German soldier who fights in the last stages of World War I. Paul and his friends are thrown into the horrors of trench warfare with their hopes high and their courage strong; this serves as a brutal reminder to recruits that the battlefield is an area that can never truly forgive. All Quiet on the Western Front is as timely today as it was almost a century ago thanks to its superb direction and heartbreaking performances.
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Scott Glenn
IMDB Rating: 7.7/10
We love watching Training Day over and over again because it is the kind of cinematic thrill ride that doesn’t let up until the movie ends. As a new hire to the LAPD’s narcotics squad, Jake Hoyt, played by Ethan Hawke, has a ride-along on his first day. Riding shotgun to grizzled LAPD veteran Alonzo Harris (Denzel Washington), the latter is all about justice delivered on a silver tray of anti-heroism, a perilous path that Hoyt finds difficult to understand, especially after being exposed to the very drugs that the police are cracking down on. With memorable dialogue, strong camerawork, and effective editing, Training Day is one ferocious action scene after another.
Genre: Psychological thriller
Cast: Jake Gyllenhall, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr
IMDB Rating: 7.7/10
Zodiac is the classic psychological thriller to watch this weekend thanks to an ensemble cast and one of the greatest directors of all time!
The movie is set in the late 1960s to early 1970s when a serial killer who names himself the Zodiac killer has left San Francisco in a state of terror. Basically, two detectives and two reporters develop a unique obsession with figuring out the killer’s motivations and catching him. While the real Zodiac killer was never caught, this film offers a fascinating look into the mind of a serial killer.
Genre: Mystery thriller
Cast: John Cho, Michelle La, Debra Messing
IMDB Rating: 7.6/10
The movie follows David Kim and the inquiry into his daughter’s untimely disappearance. This is not a Taken movie, sorry. High-speed action scenes are not to be found here. You do, however, get a plot that will have you gripped to your seat.
The movie’s filming technique is one of its main draws. The whole movie was captured primarily with an iPhone and a GoPro, giving it a genuine indie darling vibe.
Genre: Drama thriller
Cast: Eric Bana, Daniel Craig, Geoffrey Rush
IMDB Rating: 7.5/10
Munich tells the story of the horrific 1972 Summer Olympics massacre that shocked the globe and the Israeli government’s response to the PLO assault.
It is a graphic tale of battle, politics, and the fleeting aspect of life. In actuality, it offers a sympathetic examination of how wars, especially covert ones, cost lives. Also deserving of praise is Eric Bana, who gave a performance that was at the very least Oscar-caliber.
Genre: Thriller, Mystery, Drama, Horror, Crime
Cast: Kang Ha-neul, Kim Moo-yul, Moon Sung-keun
IMDB Rating: 7.4/10
With his parents and older brother, Jin-Seok (Kang Ha-Neul) recently moved into a new house. It’s a quite unique place. Even while nothing seems obviously out of the norm, Jin-Seok doesn’t feel comfortable living under the new roof. This is made worse when his brother is unexpectedly abducted and returns almost three weeks later. Jin-Seok finds that his entire nuclear unit is acting strangely after his sibling returns. Then they broke the news to him that it was truly 2017 and not 1997. What the heck is going on? Forgotten is a stylish addition to the South Korean action-thriller canon and a visual feast set against a gripping and intricate story.
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgård, Riley Keough
IMDB Rating: 7.1/10
In this thriller, the evangelical religious zeal that sweeps through their rural hamlet alters the lives of several small-town residents for the rest of their lives after World War II. The Devil All the Time is propelled by an ensemble cast led by Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland, yet despite the shaky nature of its narrative coherence, it nevertheless manages to serve up plenty of insane thrills.
That concludes my ranking of the best thriller films available on Netflix. So what are you waiting for ? Choose the thriller as per your thrill and start watching them now and enjoy yourself.
