Top 10 Best Thriller Movies of 2022: We believed now would be a good moment to issue this PSA, given the recent wave of true-crime programming in the media.

Consider this a nice reminder that even the biggest thrills may be contained inside two hours–or even three hours if you’re watching The Batman.

If you’re on week six of trying to figure out who killed Brenda in Under The Banner of Heaven, Kathleen in The Staircase, Betty in Candy, or–okay, you get it–then check out these terrific thriller movies and solve the murder mystery in under 120 minutes.

1. Men(2022)

Assemble, A24 stans! Men are the most recent horror film from your independent pal’s favorite production firm. Alex Garland, the writer/director of Ex Machina and Annihilation, has written and directed this picture, which stars Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear.

Men tell the story of a young widow who embarks on a solo vacation shortly after her husband’s apparent suicide, and the psychological instability that ensues is understandable.

On February 9, 2022, the first trailer for Men was published. Buckley’s character walks and approaches an ominous-looking statue in this 90-second teaser, which also depicts a bunch of apples slowly falling from a tree.

The trailer doesn’t tell much about the plot of the film, yet it nonetheless piques viewers’ interest and makes them want to learn more. The echoes of Buckley’s calling that recur throughout the teaser just add to the discomfort.

2. Crimes of the Future(2022)

Crimes of the Future, the next film from writer/director David Cronenberg, starring Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, and Kristen Stewart. This “body horror” film received a six-minute standing ovation and was nominated for the Palme d’Or prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

It makes logical, based on this confidently unsettling opening, that Cronenberg envisaged this story near the end of the twentieth century, in which our species has changed to sprout new organs and evolved to make the concept of pain nearly extinct.

3. The Batman

R-emo Patz’s period was wonderful. Director Matt Reeves’ depiction of Gotham City, which was released in March of this year, is adequately dark, nasty, and three hours lengthy.

In addition to Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as a character I won’t reveal, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin, The Batman stars Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Paul Dano as a character I won’t reveal, and Colin Farrell as The Penguin.

4. Ambulance

In “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version),” Jake Gyllenhaal plays himself as a career criminal committing a $32 million bank heist with his adoptive brother, Candyman’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, in his most exhilarating portrayal in recent years. An ambulance is a film that combines silent suspense with Michael Bay-style action, including high-speed chases involving helicopters and, yes, ambulances.

5. The Outfit

Mark Rylance, Zoey Deutch, and Dylan O’Brien feature in this crime drama about an English tailor who works for a gangster family. Graham Moore’s directorial debut is The Outfit, and he previously earned an Academy Award for his writing for the historical thriller The Imitation Game.

6. The Northman

“What could be more intriguing than a star-studded cast?” the jaded viewer wonders, pushing a feeling. Alexander Skarsgrd, Nicole Kidman, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, and Björk feature in The Northman.

Björk! This film portrays a Viking prince on a quest to avenge his father’s death at the hands of his uncle, which would later inspire Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

To call “The Northman” filmmaker Robert Eggers’ most approachable film is a stretch. Prior films by the director, such as “The Witch’s” puritanical hallucinations and “The Lighthouse’s” desolate, mermaid fetishization, swapped classic grim American mythology for unusual, ambient freak-outs.

“The Northman” follows in the footsteps of those films’ best instincts, but to a lesser degree. It asks viewers to dismantle overwhelming patriarchal beliefs, poisonous masculine heroism, and the foolishness of revenge by leading them through a journey of extreme familial honor.

Eggers’ style of psychological shock is bolder and more forceful in spurts here than in previous works, yet it scarcely works on its own.

7. Spiderhead

Chris Hemsworth, Miles Teller, and Jurnee Smollett feature in Netflix’s latest science-fiction thriller.

Spiderhead is based on a short tale by popular author George Saunders about a pair of inmates who are subjected to mind-altering treatment at a futuristic, Black Mirror-style experimental prison.

8. The Gray Man

Didn’t we say something about star-studded casts? Thrilling! Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Regé-Jean Page, and Billy Bob Thornton feature in Netflix’s action thriller The Gray Man.

The film follows the CIA’s top mercenary as he flees international assassins and “psychopathic former comrades” (a modern nightmare).

The actioner is based on Mark Greaney’s novel. The official description is as follows: “Court Gentry (Gosling), aka Sierra Six, is CIA operative Court Gentry (Gosling).

Gentry was formerly a highly competent, Agency-sanctioned merchant of death who was plucked from a federal penitentiary and recruited by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton).

But now the tables have turned, and Six is on the run, pursued by Lloyd Hansen (Evans), a former CIA colleague who will stop at nothing to eliminate him. Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas) is on his side. He’ll require it.”

Regé-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, Dhanush, Wagner Moura, and Alfre Woodard all-star in the film.

9. Nope

Nope is the next Jordan Peele film, and it’s a horror film about small-town residents who are seeing a “strange and weird event.” Nope, starring Daniel Kaluuya, Keke Palmer, and Steven Yeun, will be released this summer in theatres.

10. Don’t Worry Darling

Don’t worry, dear, we couldn’t leave Don’t Worry, Darling out of this. This psychological thriller from director Olivia Wilde stars Florence Pugh and Harry Styles, but the thrills appear to be in the hands of Chris Pine.
