Movies are tricky, you know it’s fake yet it makes you believe in it. You get emotionally invested if it’s a good movie. Among all the genres, the one that can grab your mind and twist it strongly is a psychological thriller. As the name itself says, it deals with human psychology and plays with it. And when it’s a thriller this way, you’re in for a ride my friend! TBH, I am heavily inclined towards movies of this genre and have watched tons of them.
