Hitchcockian Thrillers

lately i've been on a hitchcock kick and i'm running low on titles that i need to see so i'm looking for some movies that feel like a hitchcock movie or deal with themes the way hitchcock did.

examples:
niagra
cape fear
touch of evil

i'm not really looking for film noir titles. also i might add that i'm fully aware of brian depalma and dario argento.

I like how you said you're not really into noir yet you named three films TSPDT considers noir.

Anyway, I only have the obvious to offer:
Diabolique
The Wages of Fear
The Manchurian Candidate ('62)
Charade
From Russia With Love (similar to NBNW)

Munich has a lot of Hitchcockian moments.

And there's always High Anxiety, of course.

In the last years of his life, Hitchcock would occupy a screening room at Universal and just watch new movies all day. His favorite film? Smokey and the Bandit.

Maybe it's just me, but I've always felt Charade to be the most Hitchcock-like film that he didn't direct.

I found Adrian Lyne's Unfathful to be very Hitchcockian

It's funny, because both movies were remade and in both cases it was the original director that remade it. I'm not sure if you intended that.

Anyway; I recommend:

Road Games
The Machinist

I just watched Chinatown for the first time yesterday, and throughout the whole thing I kept thinking "this feels like a Hitchcock movie".

I of course knew that the directors of these films were remade by the same director but I didnt think about it at all when I posted.
I guess it fits though considering Hitchcock is another of the few directors who have remade films of which they had also directed the original.
