#10. FATAL ATTRACTION - 1987

Another enthralling list with more exceptional films on there. Though some of these had their own sub-genres, they also demonstrated the 'thrill's required for these type of films that make it one of the best lists. Tough call for no. 1 but Spielberg's classic JAWS just pips Misery to win here but it was a tight list to decide. Classics like Taxi Driver and recent ones like Oldboy and Harry Brown also become worthy of a mention. Next list is WAR.
