Carrie (1976)
This movie, directed by Brian DePalma, became a critical and commercial success and is often listed as one of the greatest horror films ever made. Carrie White is a shy and unpopular 16-year-old, who lives with her fanatically religious and abusive mother, and is often ostracized by her peers. Suddenly, she is invited to the high school senior prom by popular Tommy Ross. At first, she believes her life is on the up with help from Tommy, but when the happiest moment of her life is ruined by bullies who play a cruel and humiliating prank on her, Carrie unleashes a horrific revenge, using her newly discovered telekinetic powers. The cast includes Sissy Spacek, Piper Laurie, John Travolta, Amy Irving, and Betty Buckley. This film has a running time 98 minutes. 
Psycho (1960):
This psychological horror film is considered one of Alfred Hitchcock's best films and is praised as a major work of cinematic art by international critics and scholars. Phoenix secretary Marion Crane is on the run after embezzling $40,000 from her employer's client. Scared and alone, she checks into a remote motel run by Norman Bates. Their fates connect as this terrified young man, under the domination of his seemingly unbalanced mother, changes her life forever. The cast includes Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, Janet Leigh, John Gavin, and Martin Balsam. This film has a running time of 109 minutes. 

Poltergeist (1982):
This supernatural horror film is recognized as a classic within the horror genre and has gained a cult following. A young family is visited by ghosts in their home. At first, the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone. But then they turn nasty and start to terrorize the family, culminating in the kidnapping of the youngest daughter, Carol Anne. Paranormal experts must try to free her from the demonic ghosts and get her safely back to her family. The cast includes Craig T. Nelson, JoBeth Williams, Dominique Dunne, Oliver Robins, Heather O'Rourke, and Zelda Rubenstein. This film has a running time of 114 minutes.
