50 Best Mystery Films That Will Keep You Guessing

Mystery films revolve around the suspense and investigation of the unknown, often within a Crime setting and revolving around the deduction of the crime in question. The latter is often found within Whodunit films, with a detective acting as the protagonist. The plot in mystery films focuses around solving an overarching puzzle or problem, with suspense (or impending threat) constituting a key element that allows for climax and dramatic resolution. This is achieved in numerous ways, from the film score to drawn-out pacing and even through an unreliable narrator.
