Shouldn't the Descent be here, since you have weaker horror films on the list?
Also how about The Raid and Rec?

This is a very good idea. My vote: 12 Angry Men

FYC:

My Dinner with Andre (with the exception of a few minutes at the very beginning, as one character is heading to the restaurant and there's no dialogue, the entire movie takes place at one table in a restaurant)
