Default Top 5-10 crime films of all time

By crime films, I am referring to films involving murder, serial killers, kidnapping, etc. (preferably relatively dark), and NOT mob films ... What are the top 5-10 movies (1 film per series/franchise)?

From the top of the mind recall, below is a tentative list in the order of release:

The Night of the Hunter (1955)
Purple Noon (1960)
Psycho (1960)
The Collector (1965)
The Vanishing (1988)
The Silence of the Lambs (1991)
Seven (1995)
Memories of Murder (2003)
The Secret in Their Eyes (2009)
Joker (2019)

5 to 10 is way too late to start watching a movie.

Which is why the OP says excluding mob films as those are likely to include such facets too … The type of films under discussion are shown through the list

The first film that came to mind, my mind, probably would not do so for anybody else posting here... "The List of Adrian Messenger" (1963), which involves a serial killer with a definite difference than most in terms of motive.

It's also way too early to commit crimes.

Most crimes I commit happen in the 1am-5am stretch.

*flicks ashes*

This list is way too long, and it's not my list of the "best" crime films, more like ones I've actually seen and can recommend. I probably missed a couple and/or included a couple that don't belong. I wanted to put stuff like Road to Perdition or The Sting, but those are mob/gang related I guess.
