ANOES or Scream. Very torn on which, but none of the rest come close.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

Halloween, with Scream a close second and A Nightmare on Elm Street a close third; all three, IMO, are standout classics that we'd still be talking about even if they never had sequels. Same thing for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, though I found the first half of that film noticeably weaker than the second half. The original Friday the 13th wasn't even the best movie in its series.

Haven't seen the original Child's Play.

Halloween would definitely be third to me and is definitely another 10, but I find it a bit lacking compared to Scream or ANOES. For a start, Halloween never scared me (unlike Scream's opening and most of ANOES). I also think Scream and Nightmare boast much more compelling characters and stronger kills/suspense, on top of some truly ingenious and innovative concepts.

TCM is very strong too. The OG Child's Play is decent, but definitely overshadowed by quite a few of the sequels (the killer doll stuff works better played comedically). OG Friday is weak.

Black Christmas since you didn't mention it had to be a series tbh, and 3-4 of those films were inspired from it
