Looking for a great way to beat the heat? Summer has always been a time for everything to run high: temperature, hormones, blood pressure, nerves. And a summer thriller is the perfect way to make them all go over the top. This is the season that has seen some of the best horror and thriller classics of all time, like ROSEMARY’S BABY, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT and THE SIXTH SENSE. And those titles are in great company with the following list.

10. DELIVERANCE (1972)
Now Showing on Sundance Channel.

While the presence of anal sex in a movie is no longer as gut-wrenching as it may have been in 1972, DELIVERANCE remains one of the most shocking, haunting and uncomfortable films ever to have been made. Could it be the “Dueling Banjos” or the generally weird Jon Voight that is the straw that breaks the camel’s back? There are so many strange little interludes in this film that add to the general unease of it all, it’s really hard to tell.

Don’t miss the rest of this summer’s thriller picks. And remember to keep your cool.

Turn off the lights and lock the front door every Thursday at 9P as Sundance Channel brings you a unique thriller from genres across the board. Tune into THRILLER THURSDAYS.
