If you watched Netflix’s “Behind Her Eyes,” there’s a good chance your mind is still spinning, and your jaw has yet to be picked up off the floor. From episode one, you knew something wasn’t quite right, and maybe about halfway through you had an inkling of what the twist might be. But those last 20 minutes? That was a left turn nobody expected.

Luckily, the streaming world is having a psychological thriller moment, so there are plenty of other options to turn to if you’re craving that same sort of “What!?!” ending. Here are eight TV shows that ought to do the trick, all of which are available to stream ASAP.

Sharp Objects

Based on a Gillian Flynn novel (so you know it’s good), “Sharp Objects” follows crime reporter Camille Peaker, played by Amy Adams, who goes back to her hometown where she investigates the strange murders of two young girls. Camille is wrought with her own demons, including self-harm, alcoholism, and estranged relationships, which really endears you to her character. That makes the jarring ending all the more shocking.

Each episode is told from different family members’ perspective, and the twists and turns — ripe with the paranormal — will have you guessing what in the world is going on.
