Didn't even think to include The Act of Killing, but it totally works. I did think to include Sunshine, but didn't because arbitrary.

oldkid's choice of United 93 made me think of AoK - not sure why I didn't put in U93, 'cause that could go on my list, too. And Sunshine I wasn't sure about, but decided to include it at the last moment. So yeah, arbitrary - me, too! 

I do like your Terminator choice, Jr. I prolly should've included that one myself.

I included Sunshine because the structure and plot was very much like a horror movie.  The main difference between it and Alien is the monster.

24.   And Then There Were None (1945)
35.   The Changeling

Some nice choices. I'm loving every time someone includes The Changeling. I feel like it's the great one that's slipped through the cracks. Maybe we can make it the Pontypool of this Shocktober.

And Then There Were None is a lot of fun, and one I would especially like to recommend to Sandy. Barry Fitzgerald and Walter Huston are two of my favorites so watching them together is a rare treat.

I have been thinking what to list in this thread since it started and The Changeling was one of the first that came to my mind. I wish I kept proper lists and these would always be easier to do.

I'll start up my Shocktober list with this at the top.

Thanks! I caught up with The Changeling relatively recently - I love a good creepy house movie, and this one has some nice layers. George C. Scott is just great, too, and of course, I loved the familiar setting: Seattle, esp the UW campus!

I thought of Sandy with my ATTWN pick, too. :) I think you might enjoy it, Sandy!
