The Sadist (1963, B&W):
Charlie Tibbs, an escaped homicidal maniac, has left a trail of rampage and murder across the countryside. When a group of school teachers stop to repair their car on a desolate highway, they are brutally attacked by Tibbs who tortures them in a terrifying game of cat and mouse. Arch Hall, Jr., who starred in a series of Fairway-International films in the 60s, had previously only been cast as all-American rock 'n' roll types. In The Sadist, however, he gives the performance of his career in a role so unforgettable that his ferocity remains unsurpassed in the annals of horror. Hall's portrayal, along with a vivid screenplay and cinematography by future Academy Award-winner Vilmos Zsigmond (The Deer Hunter), creates a powerful work of art that is as shocking now as it was in 1963. The Choppers (1961, B&W):

The rampaging teens make quick work of any vehicles unfortunate enough to stop on their stretch of the highway. A tenacious insurance investigator teams up with the police, determined to put an end to the crime-spree. As the noose tightens on the out-of-control teens, bullets fly with tragic results.

One of those rare existential movies that comes but once in a lifetime. The minute the hand-drawn credits hit the screen, you know you're in for a unique experience.
