Check out the rest of our suspenseful selections in a Classics After Dark compilation!
Ingrid Bergman is going crazy– or is she? A local detective appears at her home with some chilling questions. From the play “Angel Street”, this classic tale of narcissistic “gaslighting” might remind you of a few relationships you’ve been in before… just with fancier words.
Sweet Joan Fontaine marries a charming widower with who had a very… interesting former wife. Alfred Hitchock’s first American film
This one might feel like a slow start and it’s a little longer than it needs to be, but the slow burn is worth the chills. Jimmy Stewart is a news photographer laid up with a broken leg. Grace Kelly brings him soup and helps him solve a crime (murder?) he swears he witnessed through the window in an apartment across the street. (PS if you poke around you can also find a decent remake with Christopher Reeve and Daryl Hannah)
Strangers on a Train
Wait Until Dark
Audrey Hepburn is blind, and a very bad man is stalking her. Total nail biter!
Dial M for Murder
Grace Kelly’s husband wants her dead, but why? And will she survive? No one is safe in Hitchcock films… (p.s. check out A Perfect Murder for an updated remake with Gwyneth Paltrow & Viggo Mortensen)
Janet Leigh check into the Bates motel on a rainy night after robbing a bank. Her sister comes looking for her and makes several horrifying discoveries. This is the ultimate scary movie, and still puts you on the edge of your seat.
