Let’s start of the list of suspense thrillers on Netflix with a Korean title.
This South Korean sci-fi mystery chronicles the quest of a young journalist who is still searching for his son three years after he was kidnapped. As a last resort, the father turns to lucid dreaming in order to crack the case.
The plot may remind you of ‘Inception,’ but at the end of the day, ‘Lucid Dream’ manages to differentiate itself from the Christopher Nolan production. (For one, the ending isn’t really up for debate in the Korean movie). You can also check this film out for the stellar performances given by Kyung-gu Sol, Soo Go, and Hye-Jeong Kang.
‘Cam’ delves deep into the many dangers of the internet and how easily one can get trapped into a web of problems that are far beyond one’s control.
The protagonist is a girl called Alice who secretly works as a cam girl. Her job is to film herself using a webcam as she indulges in erotic acts.
But things go haywire when a girl who looks exactly like her appears from nowhere and steals her thunder. Alice is rather shocked to see this and wants to pursue the matter to the very end. However, this leads her to a stupefying discovery that is about to change her perception of the internet forever.
Bird Box – One of the best suspenseful movies on Netflix

I’m Thinking of Ending Things
Directed and written by Charlie Kaufman, the movie follows a young woman who is traveling with her new boyfriend, Jake, to meet his parents. We keep learning more and more about the protagonist and why she is thinking of ending things with her beau as the movie progresses. But the script houses a certain misdirection that will stay with you even after the credits have rolled.
We don’t want to say anything more and ruin the story for you, but be rest assured that ‘I’m Thinking of Ending Things’ will have you racking your brain and pulling at every single thread that was presented during the course of the film.
A Netflix original film directed by Ciaran Foy, another twisty and thrilling movie that you shouldn’t miss.

As soon as Eli’s treatment begins, he realizes that the house where he is living is haunted and that there are a number of malicious spirits around him.
Stephen King, who named as King of horror stories, always know how to bring the most common of fears to life, so as the films adapted from his books. And this time is 1922, one of the most well-known creations of King.
The story of 1922 follows a farmer who conspires to murder his wife for monetary gain, and convinces his teen son to participate. Wilfred and his son Henry soon become delusional as they continue on their lives.
The Perfection is absolutely bonkers, so when it comes to thrillers, it fits the bill perfectly. If you’re looking for unnerving twists and turns, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find one with more than this film about two cellists vying for the top spot in a conservatory.
The film starts with the story of Charlotte, a talented young cellist who quits her music school after her mother is suddenly hospitalized. Charlotte, a few years later, contacts her teacher, Anton, and heads off to Shanghai alongside him and some other musicians to join an elite music school. Once there, she comes across Lizzie, another one of Anton’s students. It is the meeting of these two characters which starts off a chain of sinister events.
The Platform is a raw and metaphorical horror movie that’s set inside a vertical prison where people are forced to eat the leftovers of those above them.
Sometimes all you need to make a decent movie is a lot of food, a brilliant set, and a single metaphor stretched two hours long and several hundred stories tall. And this movie has all the things above.
Directed by new horror master Mike Flanagan (the mind behind Doctor Sleep and The Haunting of Hill House), Esquire ranked Gerald’s Game as one of the top 10 best Stephen King adaptations. It’s the story of a woman whose husband dies suddenly of a heart attack but she’s left handcuffed to the bed and must find a way to survive
