5 best psychological thrillers of 2018 so far

It's Halloween season, which means you're looking for the best new psychological thrillers to curl up on the couch and watch.

1

Mom and Dad

While this can also be a kind of black comedy, it certainly fits the bill as a psychological thriller. The movie allows Nick Cage to be as crazy as possible and Selma Blair does a great job of underselling just how insane her character is at the end. This has a really great twist you might not see coming either.

2

Unsane (2018)

A movie centering on a woman who has a stalker that drives her to a mental health facility. Then the stalker follows her to that facility. Or does he?

3

Revenge (French)

This movie is one you may not have heard of since it was made by French director Coralie Fargeat. This is a kind of rape revenge flick but it manages to put a new spin on that old flavor. It's also got plenty of gore and a few twists you won't see coming.

4

Cold Hell

Yet another foreign film that still manages to be one of the best of 2018. This flick is about a woman who isn't to be trifled with. When she witnesses a murder and the murderer comes after her, he soon finds out the whole truth about her toughness.

5

Mandy (2018)

Yes, that's right, there are two Nicholas Cage movies on the list. Mandy allows Cage to be just as crazy, in a slightly different way as he and his young wife are tormented by a cult set in the 1980s. As you can see by the picture, he goes from mild mannered to very much not rather quickly.
