Looking for movie recommendations (based on a list)

Hello! I'm looking for mostly psychological thrillers. My top two movies of all time are The Butterfly Effect and Saw, with Equilibrium being a close second (I can't make up my mind for first). I like -well-done- twist endings like The Sixth Sense
Spoiler:
I realized it as the ring fell to the floor at the end and mind you I saw it years after it came out... wonder it never got spoiled for me
and dislike alien movies.

What are some recommendations? Thanks!

Identity "Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they're being killed off one by one." I like it already!

Frailty is looking great too, but I can't wait to see Identity now. Donnie Darko will be for tomorrow (I have the 2 out for $25 a month BB pass and I get to watch 1-2 movies a night at work).

You might want to check out Jacob's Ladder and In the Mouth of Madness, and Seven if you haven't already seen it.

The Others
Backdraft
The Devil's Advocate
Gattaca
Immortal Beloved
Shallow Grave
Primal Fear
Reservoir Dogs
Swimming With Sharks


All have either great suprise endings, or some plot point that's an unexpected twist. If you haven't seen Shallow Grave, watch that one first.

The Others LOVE IT
The Devil's Advocate LOVE IT
Gattaca LOVE IT
Primal Fear One of my Favorite Movies

You have good taste

I also love The Machinist. I didn't like What Lies Beneath because I'm in love with Harrison Ford and prefer him to be the hero

Also seen Seven, good movie.


I ended up watching Kill Bill 1 and 2 instead of the movies here. Don't worry, school ends in three weeks and I will have nothing to do for a month at work except watch 10 movies a week

Our tastes do seem to run along similar lines.

Do let us know if you get to watch some of the movies listed here and enjoy them! There are a couple listed here that I haven't seen yet, but want to now.

The Interview with Hugo Weaving might fall into your range of tastes.

You can't get much more mind twisted than "Primer".

Still engulfed in schoolwork But I will have time to get through ALL of these.

One I'm looking forward to is Cry_Wolf, and Mindhunters. I didn't care much for Grudge. Kill Bill I+II were pretty good.
