Movies about serial killers

I'm home alone for the weekend so I'm planning a movie marathon. I like psychological thrillers, murder mysteries and films about serial killers. What should I watch?

Not horror - I don't mind gore but not really looking for a slasher flick
Not based on real life unless they actually catch the guy at the end - Zodiac was such a disappointment!
Not too scary -I am home alone ;)
Modern - 90s or later
I prefer movies that follow the cops trying to solve the case, but films from the victim's pov can be good too. My favourite are the standard serial killer trope - battle of wits between a super-smart detective and killer, with the clues and the taunting etc.
Also looking for really good murder-mysteries even if they don't involve "serial killers".
Films I've already seen: From Hell, Murder by Numb3rs, The Bone Collector, The Alphabet Killer, Zodiac, all the hannibal lector films and a bunch I can't remember the name of
