Before I get into discussing the flicks, please allow me to point out
that the discussion link on the bottom page of your link points here:http://www.everywritersresource.com/messageboardsforwriters/topic.php?id=106&replies=1#post-311
A link to this thread would be better. . .
On to the list. . .
The Exorcist is missing. Because of it's social impact I would include it.
Your mileage may vary. But it was a breakthrough occasion at it's debut.
No doubt about it, The Exorcist made waves.
I like that you included Cape Fear. The original. Robert Mitchum has quite
a few weird movies to his credit, including The Night of the Hunter. Along with
Fred McMurray, he is a brilliant menace. Reminds me of Dennis Hopper. . .
Do you have a list of Noir Films?
