I couldn't really find many from the last couple of years--mainly because this is my least favorite subgenre of horror. I do however use this subgenre as a compromising bridge to reach some people who don't necessarily like supernatural "monster" type horror. So I am semi-familiar with it.

Hopefully this helps, or leads you to something that does. Enjoy.

In the Mouth of Madness (1994)
Jacob's Ladder (1990)
Bug (2006)
Babadook (2014)
Funny Games (1997)

Idenity (2003)
High Tension (2003)
Frailty (2001)
Nightwatch (1997)
The Minus Man (1999)
Good list!

Sadly, original poster HANGUONHOOKS never came back to the forums... although perhaps they came back to lurk without loging back in.

Hadn't heard of Chaser before. Thanks for the recommendation!

I Saw the Devil is also one of the greatest serial killer movies ever made.
I'm looking forward to seeing I Saw the Devil.

Without regard to the age of the film, in addition to ones already mentioned, I'd recommend:

Dressed to Kill (1980)
Body Double (1984)
Basic Instinct (1992)
The 6th Sense
Silence of the Lambs
Red Dragon
Psycho (1960)
Color of the Night (is ok)

And depending on what we mean by "psychological/thriller/killer theme"...
Body Heat (1981)
