    The Lost Weekend

    I think I always remembered how brutal this film was, and the desperation in Ray Milland's performance, and Jane Wyman's leopard-print coat, but watching it now it's amazing how much this resembles a horror film. The soundtrack playing like the outer space movies of the next decade, and the bat and mouse scene like something out of the supernatural movies of the previous one. Somehow Billy Wilder makes it more horrifying than all of them.
