I mostly do not find the Val Lewton horror films cheesey.

They're much less hokey than even the best Universal movies. I walked With a Zombie is my favorite, but Cat People is the most important. Scorsese argued that it was as important as Citizen Kane, and I've seen that opinion cited with approval elsewhere.
