1. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)

The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the first of two silent German Expressionist films on this list, is perhaps the most influential film for American horror and film noir.

3. Alien (1979)

Alien captured the atmosphere of its essential horror predecessors combined with a truly monstrous creation that is basically fear incarnate and neutralizes all movie monsters before and after.

Streaming on: Showtime

4. The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)

Many consider this the greatest of the Frankenstein movies (it certainly only has the first Frankenstein to compete with). With a bigger budget, The Bride of Frankenstein capitalizes on its sci-fi potential and injects some humor into the proceedings while nailing the themes of the first outing.

Streaming on: Shudder

5. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)

5. Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
