25. The Guest

This genre-bending film is about a mysterious veteran who shows up on a family’s doorstep saying he was friends with their son who was killed in action. The film uses Halloween as a backdrop to add a bit of seasonal flair and make it feel like an ’80’s slasher throwback. Combine that with a killer performance by Dan Stevens, and a “Drive”-esque soundtrack and this mystery/thriller has just as much style as it does seasonal atmosphere. -Eric Panico
