I mean really, really twisted and mad! Like something out of a Tim Burton film. But no, worse! It has to be something that terrifies you more than it makes you laugh, something with weird visuals and twisted characters! I can't vote for one right now but I will soon.

I've read about this film and it sounds very harrowing and rather depressing. Can't believe I haven't watched it already ;)

It depends on your definition of "dark".

If you're looking for "sick, wrong and morally rephrensible" then you couldn't go wrong with "A Serbian Film" - the synopsis on Wikipedia is enough to make me recoil in horror. As is Lars Von Trier's "Antichrist" although more for one particular scene than anything else.

The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (Disney version) is the darkest kid's film I've seen in my whole life! Disagree with me? Then listen properly to the lyrics in Frollo's song!

Burton's Sleepy Hollow. Now that's dark!

Tim Burton is too light-hearted to be dark, try "The Men Behind the Sun" its about as dark as they come.

How about Clockwork Orange or The Shining?

There is of corse The Exorcist and Poltergeist which are pretty dark. And who can forget the 1968 Night Of The Living Dead?!

I agree with Anthony. Men Behind The Sun is really dark. Cannibal Holocaust is grim and hard to watch but I think men behind the sun has a cold dark reality to it.

The German childrens fairytale "The Singing Ringing Tree" fits this description perfectly...If you've not seen it check it out.
If you're after weird trippy visuals, check out some of the movies from the Czechoslovakian New Wave Era...stuff like "Valerie & Her Week Of Wonders".

There is one scene in a classic kids film that always gets me because it's so dark: the tunnel scene from Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory

My film was a porno version where they were connected by the genitals. I still want to rip my eyes out!

"Dumpster Baby" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0279054/
or Luis Bu˝uel's "Un Chien Andalou" (think razor blade cutting the eyeball scene)

'I stand alone' check it out on you tube you will be depressed after but the main character makes Victor Meldrew seem like Lee Evans, it is banned in this country though it is not very violent. The film is very disturbing though
Also: Tyrannosaur, Nil by mouth, Blue velvet, The original Bad lieutenant, The corner (6 part us mini series), Lilya forever, London to Brighton, Naked, Grave of the fireflies, Irreversible. Amores perros.

These are my favourite Dark films of the top of my head, some are very graphic and hard to watch but they are all brilliant films.
