Netflix is all about tragic love stories lately, here are five psychological love thrillers to watch

Movies and shows on Netflix are no strangers to toxic men, and audiences can’t seem to get enough psychological love thrillers. From fictional dramas such as Elite and You to reality shows like Too Hot to Handle and Love is Blind, viewers are devouring tragic love stories packed with drama.

Netflix is aware and is giving its subscribers even more to love (and hate). The weekend of July 17 alone saw three new similar shows and movies added to its lineup, Fatal Affair, Dark Desire, and the controversial Indian Matchmaking. 

Whether you are searching for more to watch that’s similar or would like to go get into the genre to see what all the fuzz is about, we’ve got some to recommend.

Here are five psychological love thrillers to watch on Netflix

YouIf you haven’t watched You on Netflix, you are falling behind! Though not the first psychological love thriller, it’s definitely the first one to become the most popular on the streaming titan. By watching You, you should have an idea of what the genre is all about.

More from Netflix

The psychological drama follows Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) falling in (and out) of love with several victims. There’s stalking, betrayals, twists, and more!

Dark DesireYou is currently working on another season to drop either late 2020 or early 2021. Until then, you need to watch Dark Desire which features similar vibes.

The thriller follows Alma Solares, a lawyer and professor who visits her friend and the two go out. Alma lets her emotions get the best of her and cheats on her husband. But this meaningless affair is about to change the lives of many!

Unlike You, Dark Desire is packed with twists and has enough episodes to keep you busy for days! And the ending will have you dying for season 2.

Fatal AffairDon’t have time to dive into a series? How about a movie? In all honestly, Fatal Affair isn’t the best of movies, but it does the trick! In the movie, a woman shares a brief encounter with an old friend who becomes obsessed with her.

Secret ObsessionThis movie is very similar to Fatal Affair, but does have a bit more suspense than the former. However, all surprises are ruined if you watch the trailer! Instead, just dive right in and watch the movie. In my personal opinion, this is one of the worst movies on the streaming titan, but it’s a quick watch.

An Affair to Die for: Hey, we didn’t say psychological love thrillers were brilliant! But they do their job, they entertain, and that’s exactly what An Affair to Die for does. The movie follows a couple who are cheating on their partners with each other. When they are caught, their captor presents to them a twisted game they must play in order to save their families.
