30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
A24

Few movies can suck us in as quickly and thoroughly as thrillers. And since all they need to offer is gripping suspense and a battle against the odds, they’re tremendously flexible, crossing over with genres like horror and science fiction and alternating between gritty realism and gleeful implausibility. They can be grueling feats of endurance, so darkly dramatic that you can only watch them between your fingers, or they can be high-octane roller-coaster rides designed to make you scream with delight.

Whatever you want, there’s a good chance Netflix has it. The service has assembled (and often created) a top-notch selection of thrillers from all across this exciting spectrum. The only downside of it all is that Netflix’s huge catalog can make it hard to narrow down your choices, so we’re determined to point out the absolute best. Any of these films should keep you glued to the screen.

Updated on December 7, 2021: It seems like a new movie comes out every minute, and of course, streaming service catalogs are constantly in rotation, with old favorites both coming and going. In classic thriller fashion, we’re going to race against the clock every month to make sure this list reflects Netflix’s current selection. The only tension here should come from the movies — not from wondering if they’ll still be there for you to watch.

Bad Day for the Cut

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
Well Go USA

One of the eternally popular thriller plots is that of the usually quiet, law-abiding person who suddenly gets pushed too far, and “Bad Day for the Cut” handles it with grim aplomb. When Donal’s mother is murdered, he sets out to avenge her. He teams up with Bartosz, whose sister is being held and used by the same gangsters who killed Donal’s mom. The further they go in their quest, however, the more sordid truths they uncover and the more their chances for a happy ending diminish. Gripping, bleak, and traditionally satisfying, “Bad Day for the Cut” joins the ranks of great revenge movies.

Calibre

Netflix

A mistake leads to a crime, and a crime leads to a cover-up, and a cover-up leads to a conspiracy. That’s the lesson in “Calibre,” where an ordinary hunting trip in Scotland turns tragic. When inexperienced hunter Vaughn accidentally kills a boy instead of the deer he was aiming at, his friend, Marcus, kills the boy’s vengeful father to protect them. Soon, the two of them are plunged into a dark cover-up where the complications keep multiplying. The movie looks at the tensions between rural people and the city tourists they need but loathe, using the isolated, close-knit nature of the area to heap the pressure on Vaughn and Marcus.

The Clovehitch Killer

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
IFC Midnight

Ten years ago, a small Kentucky town was plagued with a horrible string of serial murders committed by the Clovehitch Killer. It’s all supposed to be in the past … but then 16-year-old Tyler starts to wonder whether his seemingly upstanding father could be connected to the crimes. As he starts digging into his father’s life, he uncovers more and more links to the Clovehitch Killer. With suspicions and dark secrets building up, something has to happen — and “The Clovehitch Killer” builds that suspense into a drawn-from-the-headlines nightmare. There’s nothing quite like the betrayal of discovering that, sometimes, the people you love aren’t who they claim to be.

Croupier

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
Shooting Gallery

Jack Manfred wants to be a writer, but in search of subject matter — and a regular paycheck — he finds himself drawn back into the casino world he once left behind. He’s a skilled, highly professional croupier, and while the job drives a wedge between him and his girlfriend, it suits his sense of cynical cool and gives him plenty of material for his novel. It even provides him with a free plot when a beautiful woman brings him into her complicated life and asks him to help knock over his own casino. Jack thinks he doesn’t gamble, but it’s hard to say who’s playing and who’s being played in this chilly, noir-infused thriller.

The Decline

Netflix

A training session at a survivalist camp goes disastrously wrong in “The Decline.” Alain is convinced that society could easily collapse at any moment and that everyone needs to know how to survive on their own — up to and including killing their enemies with homemade pipe bombs. When one of his students dies during this training, Alain is determined to cover it up. The last thing he wants is the government’s attention on his camp. The rest of the students don’t necessarily agree, and soon, the collapsing society is here in miniature as they all scramble to survive this high-stakes conflict. This tightly paced thriller makes great use of its creative premise.

The Devil All the Time

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
Netflix

This moody rural thriller brings viewers into the grimy world of Knockemstiff, where a lot of scheming, hopeless, and desperate characters collide. The moral center might be Arvin, a tough, orphaned teenager who’s highly protective of his vulnerable adopted sister. And a moral center is what you need in a film that includes a husband-and-wife serial-killing team, a corrupt sheriff, a venal and predatory preacher (and an honest one who handles spiders and eventually turns psychotic), and a father who sacrifices his son’s dog. “The Devil All the Time” features an excellent cast and is a dark tour of human need and depravity.

  • Starring: Tom Holland, Bill Skarsgård, Robert Pattinson

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Netflix

“El Camino” might only be for “Breaking Bad” fans, but it’s the perfect postscript to the hit series. This gripping thriller follows Jesse Pinkman’s attempt to get out of town in the midst of a firestorm of press and police attention — and all the while, he’s still struggling with his recent nightmarish trauma. He needs money and safety, and both are hard to come by. “El Camino” offers audiences closure for a beloved character, but it also serves up plenty of tension and inventiveness in its own right.

  • Starring: Aaron Paul, Jesse Plemons, Krysten Ritter

  • Director: Vince Gilligan

  • Year: 2019

Nicholas Van Orton is successful, wealthy, and cold. When his screw-up younger brother buys him the chance to participate in “the game” organized by the mysterious Consumer Recreational Services, Nicholas reluctantly goes through the intensive sign-up phase. Suddenly, everything looks ominous and potentially set up just for him — but once the game really gets going, odd occurrences are the least of Nicholas’ worries. CRS seems to be ruining his life, and he has to try to stop it before it’s too late. “The Game” is a clever, mind-bending psychological thriller with plenty of twists and turns.

A24

Two criminal brothers wind up in every kind of trouble in “Good Time.” Connie Nikas is always coming up with hustles and crimes that his intellectually disabled brother, Nick, can’t completely grasp, but none of them tend to work out. For example, they rob a bank, but an explosive dye pack ruins most of the money. Connie then tries to break Nick out of custody, but he winds up taking the wrong person. Connie’s life is a constant series of frantic adjustments and painfully bad choices, and we’re along for the agonizing ride — and hooked in by a great, fully human performance by Robert Pattinson.

The Guilty

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
Netflix

A 911 call comes in, and Joe, the operator who takes it, winds up getting swept into a terrifying family tragedy. Joe, a cop, craves distraction from his own worries about the professional consequences of an upcoming hearing, so he throws himself into finding Emily, the caller who claims to have been abducted. While Joe tries to save Emily through an endless series of phone calls and favors, he learns that the scenario is more complicated than he could have imagined. The real story may force him to face some truths of his own. Like the Danish film it’s based on, “The Guilty” is a creative use of a limited setting, and it’s a great showcase for Jake Gyllenhaal’s considerable skills.

Netflix

Wolf expert Russell Core gets in over his head when he travels to a remote part of Alaska where a woman named Medora Slone is claiming that wolves are responsible for multiple missing children. It doesn’t fit with what Core knows of wolf behavior, and what he finds with Medora and her husband, Vernon, might not fit with what he knows of humans either … especially once a search uncovers their son’s body. “Hold the Dark” is a transfixing, uncanny look at the depth — and strange draw — of darkness.

Identity

Sony Pictures Releasing

A bad storm forces a disparate group of people to seek shelter at a rundown motel … where they begin dying off one by one. There’s no shortage of suspects — including a convicted murderer who ostensibly can’t escape his chains — but there may be too little time to solve this mystery. The audience gets one additional puzzle: How does all this relate to the late-night sanity hearing we see happening elsewhere? “Identity” has a great premise and plenty of atmosphere, and it should keep viewers guessing.

I Care a Lot

Netflix

The darkest of humor is at the heart of this vicious thriller where the amoral Marla makes her living framing elderly people as incompetent and assuming control of their assets. It’s a cruel and nightmarish situation, but Marla is always able to make it at least technically legal. She unexpectedly meets her match in Jennifer Peterson, a wealthy woman who doesn’t seem to have any connections — but who turns out to have a powerful criminal son who takes it very personally when she falls under Marla’s control. The characters are brutally unlikable, but the story is compelling, and the acting is top-notch.

I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

Netflix

Equal parts funny and quietly sad, “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore” is the story of Ruth, a nursing assistant whose modest life is interrupted by a burglary that the police refuse to seriously investigate. Ruth teams up with her neighbor, Tony, to try to get the job done themselves. They’re exhausted by the world and fed up with everything, and this might offer catharsis. Before solving the theft can bring Ruth too much closure, however, she accidentally gets herself embroiled in more than she can handle — and she’s being forced into criminal activity of her own. It’s all handled with intelligence and emotional complexity.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer

A24

This visceral, offbeat thriller — which uses purposefully stilted, off-kilter dialogue — delves into how a surgeon’s upper-class family is infiltrated and gradually endangered by a disconcerting teenage boy. At first, it’s hard to know why Dr. Murphy has taken such an overwhelming interest in 16-year-old Martin, buying him expensive gifts and inviting him to meet his family. The secret that emerges is stranger than any of the likely guesses, and it leads directly to Martin issuing a bizarre threat: Unless Dr. Murphy kills a member of his family, Martin will kill them all.

Killing Them Softly

The Weinstein Company

When a Mafia poker game gets robbed, the mob hires matter-of-fact hitman Jackie Coogan to mop things up. Jackie needs to deal with both the real robbers — effectively solving the crime and tracking them down — and the man they framed, all while handling a colleague who’s past his glory days. “Killing Them Softly” is an unusually philosophical and political thriller, blending Jackie’s efforts with some commentary on the recession and the 2008 election. It’s a smart, taut film with a great central performance from Brad Pitt.

Layer Cake

“Layer Cake” is a crime thriller full of energy and verve. The unnamed protagonist is a competent, businesslike drug dealer who makes the mistake of taking a few final assignments from the Mob right as he’s on the verge of leaving the criminal life behind for good. As always, the home stretch before retirement doesn’t go smoothly, and the protagonist gets swept up in a kind of violent multiplayer chess game that includes everyone from Scotland Yard to Serbian war criminals. He has to find his way through a maze of deceptions and conflicting interests and — somehow — come out ahead.

Level 16

Dark Sky Films

Vivien has grown up in a strange, claustrophobic all-girls school. The school — especially in the form of the icy Miss Brixil — tells the girls many things: The air outside the school is poisonous, girls must be obedient at all times, and one day, they’ll all be adopted by high-society families. But as Vivien enters Level 16, the final stage of her “education,” she finds out that nothing at the school is as it seems. The “vitamins” the girls are given are actually high-grade sedatives, and both Miss Brixil and the superficially affable Dr. Miro have sinister plans for them. “Level 16” is a smart, creative thriller with a dystopian sci-fi atmosphere.

He believes he has a coworker named Ivan, but no one else seems to know him, and he’s apparently hallucinated an entire relationship.

Miss Sloane

Relativity EuropaCorp Distribution

Strategizing and down-and-dirty gamesmanship are at the heart of “Miss Sloane,” where Jessica Chastain shines as the titular Elizabeth Sloane. Sloane is a veteran, hard-as-nails lobbyist who takes on the task of promoting a gun control bill. She knows that it will attract national attention and make her some powerful enemies, but she’s determined to come out on top — no matter what it takes. And due to a flash-forward at the beginning of the film, we know that the professional cost might be huge. “Miss Sloane” has plenty of smart, cynical power and makes for an unconventional Washington thriller.

And just when Jules thinks she’s made her peace with this strange series of revelations, Jackie crosses one final line and pits the two of them against each other in a grueling cat-and-mouse game in the wilderness.

Wind River

The Weinstein Company

Both a somber, moving thriller and a well-crafted Western mystery, “Wind River” zeroes in on the investigation of an 18-year-old Indigenous girl who is found barefoot and frozen in the middle of nowhere. Cory Lambert, a veteran tracker with his own painful history, teams up with FBI Agent Jane Banner to try to find the truth behind Natalie Hanson’s tragic death. Even solving the murder could be easier than sorting out what justice means and who gets to decide upon it. One of the movie’s biggest strengths is its sense of place, especially its wintry landscape and its complex community.

Zodiac

30 Best Thrillers On Netflix [December 2021]
Paramount Pictures

Awkward cartoonist Robert Graysmith finds himself swept up into the Zodiac Killer investigation in this quiet, slow-burning, ensemble thriller. Graysmith — along with multiple police investigators and crime reporter Paul Avery — spends years trying to meticulously put together leads and clues, chasing down a solution that the audience already knows they won’t fully find. If that sounds unsatisfying, it isn’t. “Zodiac” is great for procedural details, but it also has plenty of chilling dark suspense and one of the scariest scenes in the movies. This is a meticulously crafted masterpiece full of strong performances.
