A recent French horror film called Inside is easily the most depressing film that I've seen to date.  It's a brilliant film though but it'll make you feel like you like complete crap for watching it.

Looking back on the films I'd seen, I DO remember this one, and yes, it's a complete and utter downer, and VERY disturbing. Not for the weak of heart.

There again, that's why I stopped hanging around my best friend because every movie he watches is a downer, and he was actually laughing at THIS movie.  Nothing to laugh at, this was the most disturbing film I've ever seen.

I think Fellini's "La Strata" is the saddest film ever made.

While I tend to avoid depressing movie like the plague I've seen a few.

I think both "On the Beach" and "Braveheart" are both real downers, as were "Red Dawn" and "Casualties of War." But for me the worse I've seen was "Valley Girl" I felt like I had been kicked in the gut during the end credits.

This year's Best Picture nominee WINTER'S BONE is an awfully bleak film.
And SKYLINE had an absolute downer ending.

Up in the Air.

Without spoiling the plot too much the subject matter is depressing and heartless, additionally George Clooney's character gets really taken advantage of by somone at the end of the movie.

I saw Buried with Ryan Reynolds last weekend and it might now be at the top of my "most depressing" films list.

"Requeim for a Dream".

It had a very sad ending. It was even more sad because in the middle of the film I heard my Mom screaming. I rushed into the kitchen and found my dog lying on the floor dead. Dad buried her and cleaned up the blood then offer we watch the film later. Instead I forced myself to finish it. The ending of the film did distract me from her death for a while.

I recently watched The Boy in the Stryped Pajamas again. The ending is a hard punch in the gut.

Not a movie per se, but the British mini series Dead Set.  A zombie outbreak hits England and the only people who are unaware of it are the contestants in the latest
Big Brother series.

It moved along at a fairly rapid pace and the lead character Kelly was really good.  She went from an average nice kid to a grown up faced with unthinkablechoices in a matter of days.


**********SPOILER ALERT**********





The fact that all the characters ended up dying or zombified totally shocked me and left me feeling sick.  There was no hope left of any survivors or good feeling or anything.  It left me thinking that it was probably a realistic ending if the world really was gripped by a zombie plague but it was just a little too nasty and gritty.

I enjoyed it immensely though and I will buy on DVD, but it's not the kind of thing I would watch repeatedly, unless I was having a real downer of a day and I wanted to curl up and feel sorry for myself (which actually happens a lot more than makes me comfortable).

Has anyone seen it?  What did you think?

For me it would have to be The Bridge.

Check out this short trailer for it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwl-Pa_QT0M

It's a documentary about people who are drawn to the Golden Gate Bridge...to commit suicide by jumping off of it.
When I first heard about it, it sounded fascinating.
One thing's for sure, it is depressing.
It's well made and all that, but it wasn't fascinating like I thought it would be.
It left me feeling sad.   Bluesad


OMG that  is the most depressing thing I've seen in a long time.  Do they actually show people jumping off the bridge on camera?  If they do, why doesn't anyone try and stop them?

You're all wrong!

THE most depressing movie of all time is....

Threads.

I strongly recommend NOT looking it up on youtube.

My poor soul was crushed without watching the whole movie.

I saw that on telly in the 80s.  That movie had me sleeping in a  brightly lit room for weeks.  It was depressing and soul crushing beyond measure.  Whenever I think about it, it makes me shudder even now.

I just wrote a paper on this film for a documentary class. According to the director, they did alert authorities whenever they spotted someone suspicious, and were credited with saving at least five people that way. However, they were still accused of being exploitative. The film is free on youtube, for anyone curious about it. What's troubling is that many of the youtube comments are from suicidal people, some of which seem to suggest the film had not only failed to dissuade, but even managed to encourage their intentions, by making the act look more peaceful than it actually is. Also, none of the interviewees were informed about the footage until after the interviews were conducted.

I don't know if this one has been mentioned yet but a long time ago I watched "Flowers in the Attic" where after the death of her husband a woman and her three kids have no choice but to return back to her wealthy parents to live with them. Upon arrival the parents give the woman 15 lashes one for every year she was with her husband.  After that she lives comfortably with them and goes on to meet other men and get engaged to remarry but the story focuses on the un-wanted children who are locked in a room that they discover links to the attic. The grandparents feed the children arsenic laced cookies and the older two figure it out pretty much after the youngest dies. In the end the older two children (think teenage age) manage to break free (after being locked up for almost a year) and get down into the wedding of their husband to a new man. The woman unable to bear the vision of her pale-faced and barely living children from the first marriage swans dive out the window and is strangled to death by her own veil.

Did I mention I saw this movie as a child? like really young(<10yrs), I'm sure I'm missing some details here but its a downer when your an adult. For a child to see it is the stuff therapy is made of.

I had forgotten about "The Bridge", but that one is definitely up there for me.  Also, a few others that have already been mentioned:

Grave of the Fireflies (not much of an anime fan, but this one packs a punch)
Dancer In The Dark
Requiem For A Dream
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Eden Lake


A few that I don't think have been mentioned (but I could be wrong):

Magnolia (has both uplifting ups and depressing downs)
Leaving Las Vegas
They Shoot Horses, Don't They?
Jude
Punishment Park
Dead Man's Shoes
Million Dollar Baby
Sophie's Choice
