3. The Juror

4. The General’s Daughter

If you’re into legal movies and thrillers, then this movie will tick all the boxes for you. Starring Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins, this film will grab you right from the start. Follow a hot-shot lawyer as he puts the pieces together to uncover this murder mystery. Oh, and Ryan’s good looks are obviously a bonus for the ladies!
6. Velvet Buzzsaw
Velvet Buzzsaw is somewhere in between being a drama and a thriller. I don’t know how some sources actually categorized it as a horror – it’s not scary at all. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal (One of actor crushes, by the way) in an impeccable performance as an art critic. I know, super different from other roles we’ve seen Jake play. Ugh, I love him. The real fun starts when paintings by an unknown artist are discovered and a supernatural force enacts revenge on those who have allowed their greed to get in the way of art.
Perhaps one of my fave horror movies, Annihilation could easily also be categorized as a fantasy or a thriller. This horror / thriller movie gives you a peak into an imaginative world filled with breathtaking creations. The ending leaves you with a million questions – which is one of the things I also love about this movie so much. It makes you think!
