Just trying to find more good detective thrillers like those with fast pacing quick editing strong performances and just capturing that feeling of people obsessively trying to solve cases like these movies do
I like fantasy novels and mysteries but I'd like a break from the fantasy stuff. Out of laziness I keep buying and reading books from the Dresden Files. They are just okay and I really want something more like The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
*Edit to add that at this time in my life I really only do audio books. So major bonus if it makes a great audio book.
I've been wanting to read something along those lines for a while just not sure what to read. I've read Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (along with played with fire and hornets nest), Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, and The Silent Patient. I really enjoyed these book so anything along those lines I would love.
I have often found that the most suspenseful books are the ones not specifically marketed as “thriller/horror”, but the plot is structured in a way that keeps you right on the edge. For example, I found Cloud Atlas to have a great amount of suspense.
With this in mind, what are your top 3–5 favorite suspenseful fiction books? (I’m okay with suggestions from any genre, even Thriller/Horror)
The movie doesn't need to be good in terms of, you know, oscar winning motion picture. It just needs to entertain, be fun to watch. Fire In The Sky, for example. Even though the majority of people didn't seem to enjoy it, i did and found really interesting some disturbing aspects of the movie. I'm open to any suggestions to be honest, but I'd prefer the suspenseful ones. Thanks in advance!
I've watched the first episode of Stranger and it's not really grabbing me yet, but I've seen great reviews so I'm wondering if it takes a few episodes to really get into it. Or should I just watch Extracurricular? as I was thinking of starting that too. What do you guys prefer?
Im having my parents in law over for movie night for the first time and Im struggling to find a movie. I’m looking for something that is gonna keep you on the edge of your seat , keep you guessing and have you deeply invested in the plot, typically these movies are always engaging and fun when nobody knows what’s gonna happen.
I’ve seen almost all the major hollywood suspenseful thrillers looking for some recommendations that are not so common and overlooked
Please give a heads up if your recommendation has a ton of sex scenes lol
Thanks in advance !!
UPDATE : blown away by the amount of responses wow! I have so much to choose from I encourage y’all to keep the discussion going there’s a lot of great movies I haven’t heard of being mentioned here ! I got till tmrw to decide :)
My girlfriend and I love watching suspense/thriller movies. Movies we love are Prisoners (2013), Silence of the Lambs (1991), 10 Cloverfield Lane (2015). Are there any movies similar to these that keep you on the edge of your seat without a bunch of explosions and gunfights? Thank you!
I think the most aggressive song would definitely be Intro 2 because of how heavy it is and how much choir it has in that song and I know Outro, Outcast, Intro III would have that feeling of aggresion but I don't think it has that feeling like Intro 2
Hi all, looking for a great “can’t put this down” book that does not have too much heavy, graphic content. I’m in the mood to read something suspenseful but lately can’t read things with a lot of traumatic or heavy content. Long story short, I want to be kept guessing, but I don’t want to cry!
It went something like this: "dun, dun dun dun dun, DUN DUN!"
I remember hearing it all the time on the original Star Trek, or maybe in the "Star Trek 25th Anniversary" game, but I can't find it on YouTube anywhere... sometimes I want to use it as a reaction to something surprising!
Im just asking because I do this.
Just in case it is relevant, the novel is called "outside", hence why I use that word a few times here to tie the title and the blurb together.
>A young man from a backwater Russian town wakes up one day only to find the doors to his apartment complex welded shut. The identity of the welder isn't clear, but all signs point to one detail: he is one of the people still inside.
>Soon after, the old emergency sirens signal evacuation for the entire town, leaving him and his neighbors stranded. And when a mysterious creature kills a postman stranded outside they all realize: there is no escaping now. The otherworldly threats roam the streets of their town, and only death awaits them outside.
>With nowhere to go, the people hunker down and transform their building into a fortress, hoping for the military to come to their aid before they run out of food. But as the days go by it becomes clear that no one is going to rescue them. That the military would rather have the civilians die than have the country’s old secrets get out. And that the catastrophe they find themselves in has its roots trace back to their town's foundation – to the days when it couldn't even be found on the maps.
>The only way to survive is to get to the bottom of it. To learn the identity and reasons of the mysterious welder who is still hiding among his neighbors, how he's tied to these events, and do so before the terrors that lurk outside find their way in.
It's a bit bulky and the 4th paragraph was added because I felt like the 3rd one didn't really do the job of tying up the blurb together. So if you have any thoughts about that or any other feedback please let me know.
any book recs that are super intense and aren’t super fluffy? I feel like all the books i read seem so predictable and boring. I might try to read some non-romance books just so i can get a good read i just crave it when it’s not there. anyone feel me? 😅
So I don't know what this movie is really about and I think it looks pretty terrible anyway but this scene in the Shadow In The Cloud trailer perfectly exemplifies my issue.
Oh no the main character is in danger! Is she going to die!?
The main character, whom the story entirely revolves around, is she going to die??
No. Obviously no.
So obvious in fact you might be wondering why I even care but really...I'm just tired, tired of TV shows and movies and everything else that waste my time pretending something bad is going to happen to someone who's just clearly invincible.
The worst thing is when scenes like that happen within the first 10-20 minutes of a movie or a show. Yeah guys I'm on the edge of my seat wondering if the main character dies, you reeled me right in.
Oh no Mando's running towards Stormtroopers, he's sacrificing himself how brave! Is Mando, the Mandalorian, in the show called The Mandalorian that has 6 episodes left this season truly about to die????
We're only here for our one life I'd appreciate it if less of mine was wasted watching pointless scenes that are meant to make you feel something but just completely fail to when you can so easily predict what will happen.
I think this is why I like darker series a lot more and it's not because of any kind of edgy "dark = more mature/better written" kind of reasons, it's just because at least a series that's dark might actually threaten to do something I don't expect.
Like Talentless Nana I guess, the first episode in that was great to me because having not looked at any trailers or anything I didn't know anything about the plot, so when >!the "main character" of Nakajima who had a whole episode dedicated to him!< died it was at least a fun experience to watch. I thought the mystery in the show was going to revolve around something entirely different so that was a fun swerve. Is it the best written series ever? Absolutely not, it's full of predictable cliché's and even that was probably predictable to people who read the summary or watched a trailer but in my ignorance it caught me off guard which was a rare treat.
I realize it's incredibly difficult to have a series with hundreds of characters who have even a fraction of the development any main character could have but I still hate the concept of a main character in any series where risks they take or danger they face is taken super seri... keep reading on reddit ➡
From memory it was a kind of a short game, bit of a suspenseful horror-ish game where you talk to a mystery person on a phone or a radio or something. I watched a playthrough of it on youtube a year or two ago but I'm trying to remember as much detail as I can without remembering the big plot twist at the end because I want to actually play it.
Hello everyone! I recently watched this gaming YouTube video that played an iconic suspenseful song at the 15 minute mark. It plays for about 45 seconds.
Link down below. Would really appreciate it if someone knew. Again it starts playing at the 15 minute mark

If I remember correctly, there was a slightly unpopular girl who started hanging out with a few kids from the popular crowd. A new kid moves to the neighborhood and starts to hang out with them but the popular kids convince him they all did a "Russian roulette" thing, but the gun ended up being loaded when he used it. Many years later, they haven't told anyone about this secret but 1 or 2 of them are found dead.
I read it earlier this year, but I cannot remember what's its called! Or even if I read it as a physical book or on my tablet. Thank-you in advance!
