Ominous Cinema

The following puzzle comes from The Playful Brain:

E-CAR (1976)

LA HEENA (1977)

MUG SIR OAF (1994)

"I recorded the titles of three popular movies, played them backward, and transcribed the resulting sounds.  For instance, the word CINEMA (s-i-n-uh-m-ah) backward becomes OMINOUS (ah-m-uh-n-i-s).  Can you figure out the original movie titles?  All the movies belong to the same genre."
