Best Netflix thrillers: The Good Nurse

Many of Netflix’s best thrills and chills come from serial killer stories, and The Good Nurse is no different. Like several choices on this list, The Good Nurse is based on the true story of serial killer Charles Cullen, a former nurse who was responsible for committing at least 29 (likely many more) murders across his 16-year career in healthcare.

It wasn’t until one of his co-workers became suspicious that Cullen was finally caught. In the movie (based on the true crime book The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder), Jessica Chastain plays the brave nurse who came forward, and Eddie Redmayne turns in a chilling performance as Charles Cullen.

Best Netflix thrillers: The Lincoln Lawyer

The Lincoln Lawyer is a new show in Netflix’s line-up, but it took the streaming service by storm in 2022, dominating the Top 10 chart for several weeks. Starring Manuel Garcia-Rulfo and Neve Campbell, The Lincoln Lawyer is based on the character created by author Michael Connelly, previously adapted into the acclaimed movie of the same name starring Matthew McConaughey.

Although the show is not related to the movie, it’s perfectly capable of standing out on its own. This engaging legal thriller will keep you hooked from start to finish, and we cannot wait to see where it goes in season 2.
