BH Box Office: 5 Intense Thrillers You Should Be Watching Tonight

Welcome to Boss Hunting’s weekly Box Office series where every Sunday night we’ll be dishing out our favourite movie picks from various genres to watch while settling in with a cheeky order of Uber Eats.

This week we dive head-first into thrillers. Because how good is starting the week off in a pool of your own anxiety? Before getting stuck into it, James and John dialled in a feed from Grill’d – a Hot Bird chicken burger and a Simply Grill’d (with tasty cheese, of course) along with some scrummy sweet potato fries on the side.

In no particular order (and by no means as a definitive list of options), we present to you five BH-approved epic thrillers you should consider watching tonight.


The 2015 American thriller, Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Emily Blunt, Benicio del Toro & Josh Brolin is one of the most suspenseful films of recent memory. It deservedly received three Academy Award nominations for Best Cinematography, Best Original Score, and Best Sound Editing and three BAFTA nominations for Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography and Best Film Music – needless to say, this one is an absolute belter of a watch.

Wind River

Wind River follows tracker Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) as he is forced to confront his past when he joins a rookie FBI agent, Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen), in a quest to solve a murder on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. Together, they venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements. The distressing film is a stark look at life on the edge of the largest wilderness in the United States, where the rule of law is eclipsed by the laws of nature. Taylor Sheridan won Best Director at Cannes Film Festival in 2017 for this flick.


“What’s in the box?!” Se7en is regarded (at least in the BH office) as one of the best thrillers ever made. When retiring police Detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) tackles a final case with the aid of newly transferred David Mills (Brad Pitt), they discover a number of elaborate and grizzly murders. They soon realise they are dealing with a serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who is targeting people he thinks to represent one of the seven deadly sins. One of the more disturbing flicks on the list but an all-time classic nonetheless.

No Country For Old Men

Why is Javier Bardem so good at being terrifying? While out hunting, Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds the grisly aftermath of a drug deal. Though he knows better, he cannot resist the cash left behind and takes it with him. The hunter becomes the hunted when a merciless killer named Chigurh (Javier Bardem) picks up his trail.

The Talented Mr. Ripley

Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) craves the la dolce vita that Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law) leads amid the sun-soaked landscape of coastal Italy. When Dickie’s father asks Tom to bring his playboy son back home to America, Dickie and his girlfriend, Marge Sherwood (Gwyneth Paltrow), never suspect the dangerous extremes to which Ripley will go to make their lifestyle his own. A ripper watch for those craving a balance of a beautiful Euro getaway and a hair-raising Sunday night flick.
