There's nothing like sitting down with the family to watch a good ol' whodunit story for the holidays.

On Dec. 23, Netflix dropped a fun murder mystery for folks to watch: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery and it brought back detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) and a new mind-boggling story for viewers to sink their teeth into. 

The new movie sees the detective take on a new case revolving tech billionaire Miles Bron (Edward Norton) and his old friends played by Kate Hudson, Janelle Monàe, Leslie Odom Jr., Jessica Henwick, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, and Madelyn Cline. It's all fun and games as they escape to a remote island in Greece until one of them ends up dead.

For those who have already seen the new flick, here are other murder mysteries to get your brain wondering "whodunit?"

Knives Out (2019)

Of course, we couldn't leave the first movie in the series. Netflix's Knives Out was a crowd hit as Benoit Blanc investigated the death of rich patriarch Harlan Thrombey (Christopher Plummer). All members of his family, who all have reasons to want his money, become suspects in his murder, but there's a twist you'll never see coming.

Shutter Island (2010)

This neo-noir psychological thriller follows US Marshal Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his partner Chuck Aule (Mark Ruffalo) as they travel to a hospital for the criminally insane on Shutter Island.

As the duo delves deeper, Teddy begins to doubt everything in this Martin Scorsese film—his memory, his partner, and his own sanity.

Clue (1985)

This classic dark comedy revolves around six guests invited to a remote mansion by a mysterious man who knows a dark secret about each of them. Upon arrival, they were each handed a weapon, and as the seventh guest arrives, the lights are switched off and their last companion is found dead.
