Top 5 Mind-bending Psychological Thrillers to Watch

If you were drawn into the surreal, mind-twisting experience of the Greek psychological thriller The Clinic, here are 5 more unsettling films that will leave you questioning reality itself. From amnesia-fueled nightmares to unreliable narrators, these mind-bending movies will have you second-guessing everything you think you know.

The Machinist (2004)
Christian Bale's extreme physical transformation is just the start of this mindbender about an insomniac industrial worker who hasn't slept in a year and is haunted by a strange recurring figure. As his grasp on reality frays, paranoia and guilt consume him in a twisted game of suggested realities. This bleak descent into psychosis will burrow into your psyche.

Identity (2003)
A mash-up of psychological thriller and slasher genres, this twisty film follows a group of strangers stranded at a remote Nevada motel during a torrential rainstorm. But they soon realize a greater danger lies within as secrets are unleashed and multiple personalities collide in a nightmare scenario. The audacious final act flips everything you thought you knew on its head.

Black Swan (2010)
Natalie Portman is transcendent as Nina Sayers, a dancer consumed by her role as the Swan Queen in Darren Aronofsky's psychological horror. As her desire for perfection turns obsessive, terrifying hallucinations and paranoid delusions begin infiltrating her waking life in this surreal descent into madness. You'll never look at a ballet thriller the same way again.

Donnie Darko (2001)
In this eerie cult classic, a disturbed teenager is visited at night by a figure in a rabbit costume who manipulates him into committing crimes and other disturbing acts after escaping a bizarre accident. As the line between delusion and reality frays, you'll find yourself descending into a sci-fi mind trip about time travel, alternate universes and mental illness.

Jacob's Ladder (1990)
Tim Robbins stars as Jacob Singer, a Vietnam veteran beset by haunting, apocalyptic visions and the sense that an ordinary reality is slowly unraveling around him. As his delusions and paranoia reach a frenzied climax, this psychological horror poses heady questions about life after death. The shocking final twist will have you reexamining everything you just witnessed.
