Are psychological horror-thriller films the best? Yes they are… Yes they are.
When done right, a psychological horror-thriller can be terrifying due to the fact that it can tap into your inner-fears, as opposed to supernatural or slasher horror films, which are all made to set you up for that quick jump-scare and with plots that often don’t seem plausible.
A good psychological horror-thriller will scare you intimately and make the dread build up inside over the course of the film, with a rewarding payoff at the end that could stick with you long after the film is done.
