As the story unwinds, the plot takes This is a terrific example of a modern spin on the classic genre.
Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Catherine Keener, Caleb Landry Jones, Marcus Henderson, LaKeith Stanfield, and Lil Rel Howery.
The mystery: This would probably be categorized first as a horror film, and second as a murder mystery.
But the mystery within the plot is as compelling as any on this list. Chris Kaluuya goes to meet his girlfriend's Williams parents but their ensuing behavior seems bizarre.
Then things get so much scarier. The questions that the film poses about racism, privilege, and classism are terrifying—and the answers they provide, including what happens to the man kidnapped in the first scene, are even more so.
If you've watched this as a horror flick, watch it again for the mystery—or go watch Jordan Peele's follow-up, Us , which is similarly spine-tingling.
Starring: Peter Ustinov, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, David Niven, George Kennedy, and Jack Warden.
The mystery: There's a remake coming out in , so familiarize yourself with the story now. A woman steals her best friend's husband and ends up dead—only her BFF couldn't possibly have done it.
So who did? Mia Farrow playing the best friend is quite good in this, channeling the perfect balance of intense and hysterical. But the cast is also packed with unbelievable talent, including a gloriously young Maggie Smith and Angela Lansbury.
The mystery: Harry Lockhart Downey Jr. He's subsequently thrown into the glamorous, murder-y world of Hollywood, complete with a mystery involving his childhood crush.
Director Shane Black Lethal Weapon , Iron Man 3 somehow manages to make all of that funny and heralded the triumphant return of Downey Jr.
Starring: Jason Bateman, Rachel McAdams, Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Michael C.
Hall, and Kyle Chandler. The mystery: Ok, so technically this doesn't start as a murder mystery so much as a kidnapping whodunit: Max Bateman and Annie McAdams are pros at game night—then Max's brother Brooks Chandler hosts an "immersive" mystery game that immediately goes horribly, hilariously wrong.
The couple and their friends must figure out what's real and what's not, and the film pulls out the rug from under us in spectacular fashion.
Plus, it's one of the funniest whodunits you'll ever see. Starring: Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey, Kim Basinger, James Cromwell, and Danny DeVito.
The mystery: This neo-noir is ostensibly about three police officers Pearce, Crowe, Spacey investigating a series of murders. But it's really about police corruption, California's criminal underbelly, and the glitz of Hollywood—the film aims high, and totally delivers.
Beloved and award-winning , this is the rare murder mystery that cares just as much about its characters and setting as it does about uncovering the truth.

At the Monaco Grand Prix , Nick and Audrey question the guests. The couple hide when someone knocks on the door, and come out to find Sergei has been murdered.
Bravely, they climb out the window and edge along the ledge, high above the ground. In the process, they see the Colonel flossing his teeth vigorously and Maharajah and Grace kissing, ruling out the chances of any of them being the murderer and killing Sergei.
While fleeing, they see on the news that de la Croix has issued a warrant for their arrest. Audrey is furious to learn Nick is not actually a detective and lied about booking the trip in advance, and she leaves with Cavendish.
Nick follows Suzi to a library where he finds Audrey, who reveals Cavendish is in the building as well. The following 10 21st century-made films either evoke classic murder mysteries, or exist as sendoffs to related genres equally dealing in murder-based plots neo-noir, suspense thriller, etc.
