Distract yourself from the real world with excitement of the cinematic kind.
Weekends are for planting yourself on the couch, getting take out, and turning on a movie so unnerving and uncomfortable that you can't help but watch. On paper, that sounds kind of awful, but that's the purpose of a thriller. While Netflix has a long watchlist of movies, there's a particular excitement that comes along with taking on something from the thriller genre. In the line up of films below, we've narrowed down some of Netflix's best current offerings so that the scrolling and the decision doesn't get in the way of movie night.
Whether you're looking for something heist-adjacent or a peek into the absolutely demented mind of Yorgos Lanthimos, Netflix has a treasure trove of thrillers to eat up at least a few hours of your Saturday night. Now you just have to decide what food pairs well with the true-life story of a near Ebola outbreak. That's on you.
