Run away train
No Country for old Men
Any other recommendations?
What do you mean by "dark?"
North By Northwest
Psychological Suspense Thrillers:
Trance - James McEvoy, Vincent Cassel, Rosario Dawson
The Last Time - Michael Keaton, Brendan Fraser, Amber Valetta
A Perfect Murder - Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow, Viggo Mortensen
Blow Out - John Travolta, Nancy Allen, John Lithgow
Forgot to leave trailers for my above post:
The Last Time movie trailer
A Perfect Murder (1998) Official Trailer - Michael Douglas, Gwyneth Paltrow Thriller Movie HD
BLOW OUT (1981) Trailer - The Criterion Collection
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
Duel - Dennis Weaver
there are many, but I just watched Death Note...brutal!
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
Xiu Xiu: The Sent Down Girl
I don't mind some 'dark' movies.
This one made me churn however.
Probably wont be a regular screening.....if ever again.
The entire SAW series
Must see :
Kill List (2011)
it doesn't get much darker for me ....
Saw the thread title and immediately thought of this...
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.
German WW2 movie called The Bridge
Aguirre, the Wrath of God
Oldboys (the original)
Last Night (1998 film) - Wikipedia
The Road (2009 film) - Wikipedia
Conspiracy (2001 film) - Wikipedia
Dark City. Literally.
The Great Silence
The Shootist (1976)
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.
There Will Be Blood
The Innocents with Debra Kerr
Die, Monster, Die
Scream and Scream Again
The Failing Of Raymond (ABC movie of the week starring Dean Stockwell)
The Other 1972 directed by To Kill A Mockingbird's Robert Mulligan
Race With The Devil 1975 starring Warren Oats and Peter Fonda
The Wicker Man (the 1973 Christopher Lee/Edward Woodward original version, not the 2006 Nicholas Cage remake)
Thanks. I watched some of them, not many. I am not talking about horror movies btw, something more or less realistic.
The Shootist! One o' my Top 10 Westerns...
Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence
