    Pretty much anything from Denis Villeneuve. Prisoners and Enemy are IMHO his best movies, these two are not only dark they are both fairly gripping.

    I am not sure myself, maybe no happy ending? Like in real life. Not necessarily though. Those examples can give a clue.
    'Papillon' (original) is another one

    The Night Of The Hunter (1955)...Robert Mitchum as a ex-con switchblade wielding psycho false prophet circa 1929 whose lust for money far outweighs his love of anything else...

    Mitchum's performance as the ex-con makes his performance in the original Cape Fear seem like a stroll through the park...

    Directed by Charles Laughton & the epitome of "dark" & unsettling

    I don't mind some 'dark' movies.
    This one made me churn however.
    Probably wont be a regular screening.....if ever again.

    Original theatrical release of Apocalypse Now... seen it over 70 times... not a fan of Redux...
    River's Edge with incredible performances from Crispin Glover and Dennis Hopper. Even Keanu Reeves is tolerable.
    Clockwork Orange
    German WW2 movie called The Bridge
    Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    I Stand Alone (1998)

    Some off the top of my head. I too like my movies without a happy ending from time to time. It's quite refreshing.

    Thanks. I watched some of them, not many. I am not talking about horror movies btw, something more or less realistic.
