One of the most popular genres in cinema is the Thriller. I love a mystery and how every layer of a story unfolds trying to uncover the truth (In most cases). The cerebral input of storytellers is what drives an audience to the theatre. When the truth is not what it seems, you cannot help it but focus on the excitement of how the movie will conclude.
These are some of the best thriller movies which will surely make you grab some popcorn while you are on the edge of your seat.

Christopher Nolan really did blow our minds off with Memento. A movie which runs in reverse. Guy Peirce sufferers from retrograde amnesia( short term memory loss).
