  • Atmospheric Movies

    So I'm searching for movies that produce a dark atmosphere, through visuals, music, and just the general tone and plot of the movie. Sorry if I'm not able to describe what I'm looking for perfectly - but here is a rather large range of examples to go by -

    E. Elias Merhige - Begotten (1991)
    Stanley Kubrick - The Shining (1980)
    Stanley Kubrick - A Clockwork Orange (1971) (this one is more for the music and subject matter)
    David Lynch - Eraserhead (1976)
    David Lynch - Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992) (also including certain parts of the Twin Peaks series
    Andrei Tarkovsky - Stalker (1979)
    Terry Gilliam - Tideland (2005)
    David Cronenberg - Videodrome (1983)

    Mamoru Oshii - Tenshi no tamago AKA Angel's Egg (1985)
    Eiichi Yamamoto - Kanashimi no Belladonna aka Belladonna of Sadness (1973)
    Shukou Murase - Ergo Proxy (2006)
    Ryutaro Nakamura - Serial Experiments Lain (1998)
    Texhnolyze - (Dark, atmospheric cyberpunk series - personal favorite of this list - not on KG, perhaps need to upload?)

    I'm really interested in a lot of things it doesn't matter to me if it's new or classic, animation or movie, surrealistic or not - horror, classic horror, psychological etc. so long as it's atmospheric and dark!
