15 Murder Mystery Movies To Watch When It’s Dark Out
Remember the satisfying feeling of achievement you get when you find out who’s been taking the last cookie from the jar or the last scoop of ice cream from the freezer? Yeah, me neither. I’m almost always the culprit. Or am I? Maybe I was set up to finish the last dash of ice cream so that we could go buy a new one. Could it possibly be that the last cookie never belonged in the jar in the first place? The suspense.
Either way both treats killed my hunger and got away with it.
Another thing that leaves me hungry is a gory, sophisticated and unsolved crime. One in which the detective is bewildered while finding clues to lead him to a culprit who knows better than to leave any trails, but the killer’s wit is never up to par with the detective’s determination.
A classic murder mystery movie is what I’m talking about. One that will keep you tormented with intrigue throughout the whole movie. Top it off with a tinge of action and a sprinkle of horror and you have yourself the perfect murder mystery movie to watch when it’s dark out.
