5 Hidden Gems 1: Psy-Suspense/Thrillers

Even in childhood, most of my stories originated with dreams - snippets, pieces, characters and settings from my dreams that developed into entire worlds. That has not changed, but I also find inspiration in movies. Earlier this year, Muffy Wilson and I released our first psychological suspense novella, "Death's Shadow." I've always enjoyed watching psy--thrillers, so it seems a natural progression to add more to my own library of publications.
I embrace the idea that a good story prompts the reader to see what's happening in their own mind's eye, and I try to leave room for each person's imagination to fill in enough details to place herself in that world temporarily. That said, I'm planning to release at least one more psy-suspense next year in addition to my paranormal/urban fantasy books. Meanwhile, these movies provide the perfect atmosphere for the genre. Unlike the ever popular "Silence of the Lambs," "Basic Instinct," (the first one), "The Shining," (which actually borders on horror), and a few others, these movies have never received their due credit.

This begins a 3-part tribute to 15 of the most intriguing psy-suspense/thrillers available. I'll share 5 each time, so feel free to post your own in comments. It's very likely that I've forgotten some.
