The most suspenseful movies of all time

Today Fran and I had the chance to see the movie Gravity with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. I'll leave the full review to the experts, but I will say that we both thought it was an excellent movie for many reasons, including the masterful level of suspense throughout the film.

Last night I was in a conversation about suspenseful films and we started talking about scary movies. I realized everyone has their own definition of suspenseful movies, including those in the context of adventure or drama, rather than only horror flicks.

Seeing Gravity today made me think about the wide array of fantastic suspenseful movies out there. I was going to make a list of fifteen because it sounded like a nice number, but Fran insisted on adding one of the Jack Nicholson movies and a Sigourney Weaver flick.

I have to say I agree with him. I'll keep you in suspense to click through the video gallery and find which ones they are for yourself.

Put the kids to bed (these trailers are intense!) and check out our video gallery below of the most suspenseful movies of all time.

Have something to add? What movies had you sitting on the edge of your seat?
