The Stepford Wives (1975)
Joanna Eberhart moves to the quiet town of Stepford with her husband and children. The town seems perfect — maybe a little too perfect. There’s something not quite right with the suburb’s women: they’re vapid, unfathomably devoted to housework and completely subservient to their husbands. Joanna teams up with another recent transplant, Bobby, to investigate the mystery of Stepford’s wives and makes a horrific discovery.
Horrors of the Black Museum (1959)
A crime writer forces his hypnotized assistant to commit grisly killings to provide him with story material. The ingenious murders baffle the detectives at Scotland Yard.

When Hans’ friends and fellow performers discover what is going on, they band together and carry out a brutal revenge that leaves Hercules and Cleopatra knowing what it truly means to be a “freak.”
In this classic of French suspense, the cruel and abusive headmaster of a boarding school, Michel Delassalle, becomes the target of a murder plot hatched by an unlikely duo — his meek wife and the mistress he brazenly flaunts. The women, brought together by their mutual hatred for the man, pull off the crime but become increasingly unhinged by a series of odd occurrences after Delassalle’s corpse mysteriously disappears.

Rich oddball Frederick Loren has a proposal for five guests at a possibly haunted mansion: Show up, survive a night filled with scares and receive $10,000 each. The guest of honor is Loren’s estranged wife, Annabelle, who, with her secret lover, Dr. Trent, has concocted her own scheme to scare Loren’s associate, Nora Manning, into shooting the potentially crazy millionaire. But more spooks and shocks throw a wrench into the plan.
The Exterminating Angel (1962)
