Straw Dogs (Sam Peckinpah) (1971)

Moral of the story: do not move to England for any reason.

And anyway, I thought it dragged a little for about the first half, but boy, that second half, especially the siege on the house and Dustin Hoffman’s reaction, may have been some of the most terrifying stuff i’ve ever seen on screen.  If Peckinpah didn’t pull a Nick-Cage-in-Leaving-Las-Vegas and drink himself to death, and he made more movies like this, he could’ve been one hell of a horror director if you ask me.
