Carnival of Souls: You need to see it.
There are few classic horror films that have had such a profound effect on me as a fan of weird cinema than the 1962 masterpiece Carnival of Souls, and I really wish that the awful 1995 remake didn't exist.
The original is brilliant, and 99% percent of the chills are down to the atmosphere alone. The film is in the Public Domain now, and thanks to the Internet Archive, you can watch the whole thing for free (or indeed download it completely legally).
You can easily find the film on DVD for a pittance these days, but if you've never seen the film before, check out the embed below.
