The Dissolve had a series called “Forgotbusters” quite related to your theme.
I watched “The Rhythm Section” because I Do Movies Badly did a series on Reed Morano. I didn’t see one of the movies on that initial trio, The Skeleton Twins, because she didn’t direct it. I would rank The Rhythm Section above I Think We’re Alone Now because at least that didn’t introduce an entire additional high-concept premise in the third act.
One that comes to mind is Peter Weir’s THE LAST WAVE. I’ve listened to podcasts spotlighting Peter Weir, which go through his filmography and literally don’t even mention TLW!! I just never hear a thing about it. Which is a shame, I really liked it, it’s a pretty rad 70s supernatural thriller which I’m convinced was the basis for TAKE SHELTER. The story involves Aboriginal mysticism, which has potential to age poorly, but fwiw I don’t remember any big red flags. Cool movie though
