Great Mystery Movies You Can watch On Netflix Right Now
Everyone loves a good mystery, and now seems as good a time as ever to dive into the mystery movie genre. Luckily, there are plenty of films out there just begging to be discovered. From perplexing puzzles to harrowing whodunits, here are the best mysterious movies currently on Netflix.
If there's one singular mystery that's puzzled and terrified humankind since the dawn of time, it's this: what happens to us when we die? Unsurprisingly, this is a topic that cinema has approached in all kinds of ways. But few of those movies have been brave enough to tackle the mysteries of the afterlife as directly as Charlie McDowell's The Discovery. The movie is set in a not too distant future where a scientist named Thomas Harbor has proven conclusively that the afterlife does, indeed, exist. Unfortunately, he doesn't know exactly where or what it really is. In the wake of mass suicides by folks eager to find out for themselves, those answers become more vital than ever.
Years after the discovery, Harbor's deeply skeptical son and an enigmatic young woman arrive at the scientist's research compound, and find the search for answers has led to the invention of a device designed to record the afterlife experience. From there, The Discovery only gets weirder, in the best possible way. The film uses its central mystery to frame a beautifully textured and grounded character study steeped in simmering small-scale dramas, grand theological commentary, and a dash of heart-wrenching romance. It also happens to be a first-rate slice of hard sci-fi cinema.
Adapted from a novel by Kôji Suzuki, Hideo Nakata's near-flawless J-horror The Ring was so successful that an inevitable English-Language remake soon followed. In 2002, Gore Verbinski brought his version of The Ring to theaters, and in doing so, unleashed one of the greatest horror movies of the modern era.
These days, The Ring's plot is practically iconic. Just in case you're still in the dark, however, the movie follows a reporter who stumbles onto a perplexing story about a videotape that kills anyone who watches it, seven days later. Want to know more? Then go watch it, because this isn't a movie you want spoiled for you. Here's one guarantee, though: you'll never see the film's shocking final moments coming, and there's a good chance you'll be haunted by them for years to come. Keep watching the video to see the great mystery movies you can watch on Netflix right now!
