The Great Gatsby

The room upstairs at The Great Gatsby had the perfect school/horror feel, with skulls, old lamps and dusty shelves. We were enraptured by this film, which inspired Hitchcock’s Psycho and you can tell: building tension, shadowy shots askew, odd incidental characters, and we weren’t shown the full horror until the dastardly twist at the end. This is proper film-making.
