This contemporary collection of mysteries are so dark you'll need to turn up the screen brightness on your laptop. Make sure to check out 'Stonehearst Asylum' for a fantastic horror/thriller based on a short-story by Edgar Allen Poe.
One of the worst collections you could ever watch with a friend on LSD: these post 2000 flicks delve into the darkest recesses of the human psyche, through fantastic imagery and nightmarish storylines.
Movies in the vein of 'King Arthur': gritty action set in the Middle Ages (or thereabouts). Gone are the chivalry filled Arthurian adventures of the 70s and 80s; the medieval epic of today is gritty, dark, and littered with hacked off limbs!
A list of all movies where Nicholas Cage plays a furious character (so in other words, practically every movie Cage has ever done excluding the 'National Treasure' franchise). If you haven't seen 'Bad Lieutenant', it's a must watch!
