Best Thriller movies & tv shows to watch so far in 2017

There are not that many great thriller movies & tv series that can get the suspense just right. So many different things have to come together to create the perfect atmosphere for a perfect thriller. It really is a team effort because you will need excellent sound design, a terrific soundtrack & sweeping visuals to support the acting and the screenplay. Ideally you are also emotionally invested in the character to so that you can truly experience the characters fear or paranoia. But many filmmakers, like Christopher Nolan, have proven that you don’t even need that great a story, and that you can let the other ingredients to their work Take Dunkirk for example, that is all about suspense without an actual story. It gives you an almost physical experience of the movie that is thrilling, and incredibly suspenseful. Here we have got thriller movies & tv shows like that, but also films that are more of an emotionally invested psychological thriller flick.
