List by john Last updated June 15, 2017

Mystery comes in many forms usually involving murder. It's no surprise that filmmakers have been producing such movies since the beginning of cinema because they tend to feature everything you could want from a movie lock stock and barrel; suspense, drama, action and a great plot. in other words they give a whole new layer to enjoy ontop of the typical "blow-em-up" that you find in many of todays Hollywood flicks.

This list features the top 25 mystery movies ever made from some of the most acclaimed directors in cinema history such as David Fincher and Alfred Hitchcock.
