Psycho (1960) - I went through a period in high school where i was big on old films, and watched many Hitchcock films. I saw "Psycho" again about 4 years back, and found myself thinking "You know...that's not nearly enough blood in that bathroom..."

Silence of the Lambs, The (1991) - FSR I just have a thing for getting into the minds of the murderously psychotic. Another of my fave movies is "The Cell", which, considering my history, ought to freak me the fuck out. However i find it a most visually beautiful movie

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000)

Wizard of Oz, The (1939)
