12. Rear Window – Suspense At Its Best
Alfred Hitchcock is the king of thrillers, and Rear Window is his piece de resistance.

Hitchcock’s talent in building a quiet mystery using subtle pacing and visual cues is on full display. This movie is a deadly combination of suspense, thrills, and classic filmmaking.
