    In keeping with current events, there's a music thread about songs dealing panic and fear.

    What are some good movies that it might be timely to watch?

    The Seventh Seal immediately comes to mind with Max von Sydow passing a few days ago. I watched this film just last year, and was drawn into the atmosphere of fear and faith it portrayed, and the sense of existential crisis was convincing to me. I'll be taking a second look at it very soon.

    The New Zealand film, The Quiet Earth (1985), is one of my post-apocalyptic favourites.

    Such great music at the end. Used or copied in so many similar TV shows/movies.

    The Quiet Earth sounds familiar, or am I thinking of one called The Last Night on Earth?

    I need to watch 12 Monkeys again.

    as in, Fear is contagious too? :)

    A little known one is called The Navigator, how some medieval peasants trying to ward off the Black Death make a cross to mount on the highest church spire in Christendom get into a time tunnel and end up doing the installation in 20th Century Australia!

    Also:

    I agree that's the scariest; I won't spoil for those that haven't seen it, but I remember watching it a few years ago at night.

    This is one of the films that I'll never, ever see again, not because it's bad, but because it made me feel sick.
