Joann: I LOVED The Usual Suspects. It's an absolutely GENIUS movie and Kevin Spacey is brilliant (as usual - the man has serious range). This film is intelligent and requires that you don't zone out for even a second. When you get to the end and realize that everything you've seen is...well, I won't give it away, but when you do reach the "AHA" moment and your head tingles with realization and your mind plays back every moment of the film, yeah...that's the stuff. "Who IS Keyser Söze?" has become euphemism in our family for "WTF is really happening here?"
Jenny: Hands down, my favorite thriller is The Silence of the Lambs. It has a spectacularly fascinating villain (Hannibal Lecter), an interesting secondary villain (Buffalo Bill), and a likable heroine (FBI trainee Clarice Starling). This movie actually borders on horror for me, especially during the scenes where the Governor's daughter is kept in the well. "It puts the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again!" Tight pacing, complex characters (you know I love characterization!) and a satisfying ending make for a movie that I can watch over and over again.
JB: I've got to go with Se7en. The seven deadly sins. Kevin Spacey at his absolute creepiest. You-know-who's head in a box. What's not to love? A close second for me would be And Then There Were None...it's caused me nightmares for years!
So what's YOUR favorite thriller movie, killer friends?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
