The 10 Best 90s Thrillers Based on Books

"Hollywood loves to make movies based on books. Adapting a best-selling book almost always equals a guaranteed hit because the story is already a proven success with audiences. Not to mention, if a reader enjoyed the book, they'll check out the movie. The 1990s produced many great movies based on books and, particularly, in the thriller genre. Adapting a thriller is hard because, most of the time, audience members already know what is going to happen having read the book. So, filmmakers still need to find a way to thrill them. Several of these highly respected novels became not only box-office successes, but also saw Oscar glory. The material combined with great filmmakers produced gripping films that quickened the heartbeat of audiences who bought a ticket, pleasing those familiar with the source material and those who weren't."
