"Any that you think were missed on this list?"

A few, off the top:

The Maltese Falcon

King's Row

Carrie (Sissy Spacek version)

This Island Earth

Frankenstein (Karloff)

Dracula (Lugosi's and Langella's) and Bram Stoker's Dracula

The Thing From Another World, as well as John Carpenter's "The Thing." (Although I think "Who Goes There?" is considered a novella rather than a novel)

I do agree that To Kill A Mockingbird may be the best of the bunch.
