Top ten horror movie classics
As Paranormal Activity 4 spooks up the box office, here are ten nail-biters we gleaned from the scores of suggestions made by callers to our Horror Movie Special on The Weekend Break (Sunday 21 October, 2012). Not to be read in the dark. Boo!
THE CABINET OF DR CALIGARI (1920) Powerfully influential silent German masterpiece. Whenever you get scared by a shadow in a movie, blame this film.
THE SPIRAL STAIRCASE (1945) A mute girl alone in a big house being stalked by a serial killer - and she can't scream! The tension was so strong it was hard to breathe. Brilliant black-and-white cinematography. Hitchcock would have been proud.
HUSH...HUSH SWEET CHARLOTTE (1964) Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland mix up a killer cocktail of murder, deception, blackmail and property development. The film's big message: never stand under a balcony Bette Davis is standing on.
CAPE FEAR (1962) Lawyer Gregory Peck dukes it out with vengeful crim Robert Mitchum in the B-movie noir classic that inspired Martin Scorsese's 1991 remake.
HOSTEL (2005) The torture-porn epidemic didn't start with this shocker from horror-meister Eli Roth, but it made it notorious. The sequel was even worse.
IT (1990) If you don't have a fear of clowns, just check out this mini-series based on the Stephen King story. That'll fix you.
MISERY (1990) Ditto if you've never been scared of a nurse.
TARANTULA (1955) How best to stop a giant spider from menacing America? Have a very young Clint Eastwood fly in and napalm it!
POLTERGEIST (1982) Often misunderstood as a film about ghosts possessing a house, this Steven Spielberg classic is actually a satire about television. Go on, see it again.
THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991) Who else but Anthony Hopkins could give Shakespearean gravitas to cannibalism and violent debauchery? He's a serial killer who went to finishing school.
