Some very good picks here! Can’t imagine anyone arguing about the original TCM or Halloween; those are definitive classics. Totally on board with F13 part 2, as well; that’s my favorite movie in the series, and has a real sense of tension throughout. I Know What You Did Last Summer isn’t a movie I find holds up very well in general, but that chase scene is definitely a highlight. And before I read the article, I was thinking, “If she didn’t mention Halloween 4, I’m totally gonna bring it up in the comments.” For favorites of mine that didn’t make your list, I’d include: Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956) – Basically, everything from the moment Miles and Becky get away from the transformed Jack and Dr. Kauffman until the ending is one long, suspenseful thrill-ride. Night of the Living Dead (1968) – Barbara’s escape from the Cemetery Zombie is just about perfect. Following the atmospheric, character-building intro with Barbara dn Johnny, the explosion of action really establishes the movie’s fast-slow-fast rhythm, and the compositions and cutting are utterly inspired. Baron Blood (1972) – The Baron pursuing Eva through the streets at night. Bava lifted the basic look and pace of the infamous chase scene from House of Was (1953), but applied his more masterful sense of lighting and composition to create a work of almost transcendental beauty.
