5 Best Thriller Movies (From The ’90s) Ranked As Per Their Letterboxd Ratings

The timeline between 1990 and 2000 has served many thriller movies to the global audience. While some were all about the indie flicks, a few of them were truly legendary. However, most of them, even the ones delivered by the greatest directors, failed to gather significant box office collections. But ironically, that doesn’t mean that the films weren’t any great. With that being said, the thriller genre has ruled the 90’s in many ways and these are some of the best ones (ranked as per their Letterboxd ratings) –

Pulp Fiction

Letterboxd Rating: 4.32
Letterboxd Rating: 4.32

Many viewers and critics believed that this Quentin Tarantino film is one of the greatest ones ever made in history. For the majority of Pulp Fiction’s part, it is quite difficult to predict the story unless the plot itself echoes it. The narration surrounded a criminal, his family, two assassins, and a fighter. While the film and the narration are praised for its spectacular cast, a completely new and unique concept, and a significant write-up, it is one of the best-rated 90’s thriller movies of all time. With that being said, Pulp Fiction is available to stream on AMC+.

Perfect Blue

Letterboxd Rating: 4.35
Letterboxd Rating: 4.35

It is quite rare to find an animated film leading such a list. However, Perfect Blue is quite an exception. It is an adaptation of the novel of the same name and focuses mainly on a singer who gets stalked by an obsessive fan. While the film is intense and harrowing, it keeps the viewers all awake unless the suspense breaks through. With that being said, Perfect Blue is available to rent on Apple TV.
