THE NIGHT OF THE HUNTER, incredibly, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed, is truly a standalone masterwork. A horror movie with qualities of a Grimm fairy tale, it stars a sublimely sinister Robert Mitchum (Cape Fear, The Friends of Eddie Coyle) as a traveling preacher named Harry Powell (he of the tattooed knuckles), whose nefarious motives for marrying a fragile widow, played by Shelley Winters (A Place in the Sun, The Diary of Anne Frank) are uncovered by her terrified young children. Graced by images of eerie beauty and a sneaky sense of humor, this ethereal, expressionistic American classic - also featuring the contributions of actress Lillian Gish (Intolerance, Duel in the Sun) and writer James Agee, is cinema’s quirkiest rendering of the battle between good and evil.
A rare fusion of the Old West, gothic horror and science fiction. Rays from a mysterious meteor kill one man and infect his teenage son with a mutating werewolf-like malady. The "Meteor Monster" goes on a murderous killing binge and terrorizes the countryside as the sheriff and townspeople watch in horror. One of the last films of legendary special effects make-up artist, Jack Pierce, who created the original Boris Karloff make-up in "Frankenstein" and "The Mummy."
A rebellious teen and her three girlfriends steal a car and try to catch up with one of the girl's ex-boyfriends before he leaves on Naval duty.

When he marries their fragile widowed mother, the children realize their only chance for survival lies on the run. This 1955 noir classic is now considered to be one of the scariest films of all-time. “Chilling.” (Roger Ebert) “Shocking.” (The Village Voice) “A terrifying masterpiece.” (TV Guide)
