Good Suspense Movies?

Hello, ive been a wanderer here for a bit now, and was wondering if any of you could recommend me some good suspence films? I really enjoyed Identity, so anything like that would be great.

Heres what Ive got so far:

Not really much, but ive got the only 2 DVD players in the house(one of computer, but thats another subject) and ive got the budget of a normal high school student. Rate it if you'd like, but im really just looking for some great suspence movies. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'd say any Hitchcock, but looking at your collection, ya might not like the oldies.

Maybe a couple David Fincher films? Fight Club, Se7en and The Game all have (IMHO) a bit of the feel of Identity. (Which I also enjoyed!)

Blood Simple
Cape Fear
Usual Suspects

Most Film Noir are great suspense stories. To name but a few:
Maltese Falcon
Big Sleep
The Third Man
Out of the Past
The Killers

I thought What Lies Beneath is a great suspense thriller. Alittle slow in the begining but great at the end.

Two fairly recent movies that come to mind:

PHONE BOOTH with Colin Farrell

NICK OF TIME with Johnny Depp

Both of the short (less than 1 1/2 hours each) movies take place in "real time". Excellent commentary track by director Joel Schumacher on Phone Booth.
