10. Secret Window (2004)
There is just something about Johnny Depp that is plain wrong. Be it his chiseled looks, or his deep baritone, they fit in absolutely any role on offer. He took on the part of a struggling author, Mort Rainey, whose recent divorce and a bout of writer’s block compel him to retreat to his cabin in the woods. Things take a turn for the worse, when an unknown writer, John Shooter confronts him and alleges him of plagiarizing his story. Further probing confirms the latter’s claims, albeit with a different ending. A series of strange events follow in his life, including his dog being killed with a screwdriver, which take a toll on his being. Mort finally discovers that he himself is Shooter, becoming the latter whenever he was asleep or fainted, owing to MPD. The petrifying ending, which I won’t spoil for you, is a fitting finale, true to the core nature of the movie.

9. Identity (2003)
At first there were ten. One by one, they died. And then there were none. A classic homage to Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” (which is my favorite novel), the movie manages to become so much more. A taut drama thriller, with sizable subjects to dilute the narrative, the film almost succeeds in keeping the identity of the killer intact till the end. Featuring an impressive cast who give inspiring performances, the movie’s real strength lies in the vagaries of its eccentricity. Not the greatest of attempts at creating a treacherous climax, the movie failed to exceed expectations.
