1. Split (2016).
James McAvoy's central view of a person struggling with a severe case of dissociative identity disorder is strikingly perceptive in its portrayal of contemporary illusions, and Shyamalan's work deserves all comparisons to Hitchcock.
2. Thoroughbreds (2017).
A privileged teenage girl rekindles a friendship with an old acquaintance who has had troubling psychological problems in the past, prompting them to create a dark conspiracy between them involving blackmail and murder.
3. Black Swan (2010).
Natalie Portman's Oscar-winning performance as a low-key ballet star and her inner demon struggling for power have transformed Black Swan from another film into a realm of character exploration.
4. Island of the Damned (2010).
The plot begins with US Marshal Leonardo DiCaprio being sent to a secluded island shelter to investigate a patient's disappearance, but as you might have guessed, things are not what they seem.
5. Gone Girl (2014).
Ben Affleck plays the husband of a woman who goes missing, leaving him the prime suspect. Gone Girl may be driven by plot twists, but it focuses on imperfect characters.
6. Very dark times (2017).
A psychodrama about growing up by Kevin Phillips, which will likely be the closest thing to audiences seeing a live South Park movie and all the terrifying imagery that can come from such an aspiration.
