cry terror! (1958)

starring James Mason and Inger Stevens as a couple who, along with their daughter, get kidnapped as part of a ransom scheme by a criminal gang. the movie is a series of suspenseful moments, from car chases to bomb countdowns to hurried escapes. it gets a bit ridiculous at times, but it also dives into darker situations to help with the suspense. rape, drug-addicted rage, and violence against children are all dangers used to raise the tension in the film.
