Hands down the best horror movie in my opinion. The way it slowly builds up and it doesn’t scare you by having loud jump scenes. Just the eerie atmosphere through out that movie is scary. It was my first horror movie and I had to sleep with the lights on for a solid 3 or 4 days.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
This movie is as raw and gritty as fuck! And the dinner table scene, nuff said!

Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011)
I had to start off by mentioning Jiro. Not only is this documentary fantastic, but it’s one of the more recognizable titles in this list. I have friends who either never watched, or claimed to hate documentaries, but ended up loving this movie. I think it’s a great jumping off point into the genre. Jiro Dreams of Sushi chronicles the life of Jiro Ono, an 85-year-old sushi chef who runs one of the best sushi restaurants in the world. However, as much as this is a film about the quest for gastronomic perfection, it’s also a film about family, legacy, personal sacrifice and how all these things fit together (or don’t).
2001 Space Odyssey
“2001” is a story of evolution. Sometime in the distant past, someone or something nudged evolution by placing a monolith on Earth (presumably elsewhere throughout the universe as well). Evolution then enabled humankind to reach the moon’s surface, where yet another monolith is found, one that signals the monolith placers that humankind has evolved that far. Now a race begins between computers (HAL) and human (Bowman) to reach the monolith placers. The winner will achieve the next step in evolution, whatever that may be.
