A few years after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, in New York, in 2001, some film productions began to artistically investigate some issues pertinent to the subject.

Paul Greengrass’ film, in this sense, gives a realistic and fascinating picture of what would have happened to the passengers on Flight 93, who rebelled against their kidnappers and diverted their original routes so that no disaster could happen. Although there is no supernatural element, the film is terrifying in many ways.

1. Flight plan

To close the list, there Flight plan, which was loosely inspired by the style and films of filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock — considered by many to be the great master of suspense. The central plot revolves around Kyle Pratt (played by Jodie Foster), who is in mourning after losing her husband. During her flight, in which she is with her six-year-old daughter, some strange things happen.

When the little girl suddenly disappears, Kyle goes out of his way to look for her, even though the people around him come to believe that the girl is a fantasy in the character’s head. In that sense, the production is extremely powerful in bringing that feeling of doubt to the audience, while a powerful thriller forms on screen.
