Foreign thrillers are gripping audiences across the globe. Included in the list is French-Canadian mystery thriller, The Decline, a tense survival adventure gone wrong that resonates with the current pandemic times.

The film starts peacefully and then suddenly you are thrown in the world of hysteria and paranoia. An accidental death in a survivalist camp based in the snow-clad mountains, becomes a man hunt for other survivors. The Decline grips very well and keeps the depth of the suspense till the end. Chilling on Netflix.

Keeping the suspense going is the mystery thriller, I See You. Mysterious happenings surround a small-town detective and his family while he investigates the disappearance of a 12-year-old boy. Helen Hunt plays the detective's wife whose recent affair has affected their son. Mysterious happenings around the house border to paranormal activity just then the plot twists to tie up all the intimidating happenings. Great for spook lovers, this suspense thriller is creepy, smart and unpredictable. Streaming on Prime Video.

Quasi super heroes cannot be far behind in action thrillers. The Old Guard comes with enough action punch that can compete with the Marvel Universe. A handful of warrior soldiers from early history are banded together in today's time as mercenaries.
Their gift is that they are immortals, all wounds heal up in seconds. Their secret is discovered and they have to fight from being killed and exploited. Having a traitor in their own ranks, this top tier action film has the right mix of action and emotion. Based on the comic series, Charlize Theron leads the pack and rocks the show. Available on Netflix.

Where is the franchise movie? Here it is. Bad Boys for Life brings Will Smith and Martin Lawrence together again after 17 years for this action comedy franchise. With one of them becoming a grandfather and nearing retirement, they band together again to fight the drug cartel. Our wisecracking cops need to adapt to getting along with their latest best counterparts to save their lives, but now as they have got together for "one last time", the film is a ride of fast paced action and comic one liners. As it could be their last ride, it not to be missed. Available on VOD.
