Max’s list of February 2024 titles is a superb balance of cinema classics, lesser-known movies and big names. 

Among Max’s next wave of entertainment, thrillers stood out to us as one of the most popular genres coming to the platform this month. With that said, we’ve scoped out four thrillers we think you should add to your Max watchlist, including a Kubrick classic, a trippy horror from A24, and a Fincher crime thriller. 

Our four chosen films have garnered critical acclaim respectfully, so may well rank among the best Max movies list. Be sure to visit our best Max shows list, too, if you want to see what TV shows are worth watching!

But there's obviously tons more here outside of the thriller genre – we've got a full list of everything coming to Max just below our four picks, but you can jump straight to it by clicking here if you prefer.

A Clockwork Orange (1971)

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Runtime: 136 minutes
Age rating: R
Available to stream from: February 1

Adapted from Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel, Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation is chilling and graphic. The movie comments on juvenile delinquency, crime, and youth gangs set in a dystopian Britain, where the main character, Alex, leads his gang through their sprees of violent crime. After Alex has a run-in with the authorities and is sentenced to 14 years in prison, he is subjected to an aversion-therapy experiment that doesn’t go as planned. It's part cold-eyed thriller, part-satire (as Kubrick's movies generally are).

Everest (2015)

Director: Baltasar Kormákur
Runtime: 121 minutes  
Age rating: PG-13
Available to stream from: February 1

Everest recounts the true story of mountaineer Rob Hall, and the events of a 1996 disaster on Mount Everest. Hall (Jason Clarke) and Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal) lead their teams to reach the summit of Mount Everest, but their journey quickly turns into a battle for survival. This chilling biopic features an ensemble cast that includes Oscar nomination recipients Josh Brolin, Emily Watson, and Kiera Knightley.

Midsommar (2019)

Director: Ari Aster
Runtime: 145 minutes
Age rating: R
Available to stream from: February 1

Florence Pugh’s performance in Ari Aster’s psychological thriller earns the film its status as a modern classic. An American couple and their friends travel to rural Sweden for a mid-summer festival, finding themselves at the center of a cult whose practices in paganism lead to much more concerning outcomes than a bountiful harvest. With Midsommar, Aster’s use of beautiful imagery in conjunction with the movie’s sinister scenes makes it truly disconcerting to watch at moments. There’s no denying that Aster is a force to be reckoned with in the thriller genre. 

Se7en (1995)

Director: David Fincher
Runtime: 125 minutes
Age rating: R
Available to stream from: February 1

We wouldn’t have been blessed with Brad Pitt in Fight Club (1999) if it wasn’t for David Fincher’s 1995 crime blockbuster, which is one of the most influential movies of the ’90s in its own right, teeing us up for the dark, moody and graphic detective shows that would soon take over TV. Pitt teams up with Morgan Freeman as a pair of detectives at different career stages, working together to stop a serial killer from committing murders based on the seven deadly sins. It’s regarded as one of the best crime thrillers ever made, with an all-timer ending.
