From single-location mysteries that slowly unravel to pulse-pounding, psychological terrors threatening to rip someone apart, thriller films come in all shapes and sizes, and Netflix is one of the best places to experience the full breadth of the genre.
Whether you’re looking for something new or old, Netflix has plenty of thrillers to choose from, and we’ve put together this roundup of the best thrillers on Netflix to help you select some winners for your weekend binge.
In director Matt Reilly’s Interceptor, Elsa Pataky stars as Captain JJ Collins, the spearhead of an isolated nuclear missile facility smack-dab in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. When the weapons hub falls under attack from enemy forces led by a former U.S. intelligence operative (Luke Bracey), Collins must use her military background and quick ingenuity to thwart the evildoers before they overrun the base. Interceptor is a decent example of a Netflix-backed action-thriller, driven by a kinetic pace that hits all the beats but misses here and there. A refreshing change of pace is seeing a woman in a role that would normally be helmed by Bruce Willis, and Pataky tackles her heroine character with muscle and grace.
