Se7en (1995)
Giving a lecture at Boston University in November 2010, renowned title credit designer Kyle Cooper said that this film was one of the inspirations for his opening credits' sequence for Se7en aka Seven. Cooper told director David Fincher that he had watched "Brain" as a young boy and had waited and waited and waited and waited for the monster to appear. He felt that since "John Doe" didn't appear in Fincher's film until quite late, it was important to give a glimpse of him in the opening credits. So, although you never see Doe's face in the credits, his presence is felt.
