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. But, I am always frantically searching for a new one to watch, that is how hooked you get once you fall into its trap. So, if you wish to sail in the same boat as me, here are some psychological thriller movies, in no particular order, that you should defs watch!

2. Memento


Let me stop you right there before you compare it with Ghajini, just don’t! You’ll be thankful you watched this one.
