Writer and director Rian Johnson is a murder-mystery master. He proved as much with his 2019 hit Knives Out, and did so again with the sequel, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The new film, which you can now watch on Netflix, features a stellar cast of characters (Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Kathryn Hahn, Janelle Monae, and more) who are trapped at the home of a “friend” (Ed Norton) as they try to figure out who killed one of the guests—and more. The film was both funny and spellbinding—and had a twist that no one (except my stepsister) saw coming.

If you can’t wait for Knives Out 3 to satisfy your new whodunnit hunger, check out these 10 films next. They might not be Johnson’s creations, but trust us, they’re just as fun to solve. You’ll be an armchair detective in no time.

OK, so no one gets killed in this movie but it’s still a fun conundrum. In fact, as one clever tweet pointed out, Mamma Mia has quite a few ties to Knives Out: Glass Onion. In Mamma Mia, James Bond (Daniel Craig in Glass Onion, Pierce Brosnan in Mamma Mia) is invited to a Greek Island to solve a mystery. Of course in the beloved Brosnan flick, there’s a lot less murder and a lot more singing. A musical mystery! What more could you ask for?
