Arlington Road
Frailty (depending on your take on it)
No Country For Old Men (although I guess he doesn't "win" so much as "get away")
Driller Killer - a lot of slasher flicks fit this category but that's the first one I thought of.

Not a movie, but "Deadwood" ended with the worst bad guy getting basically everything he wanted and then walking away.

Frailty is a very good example.

Scanners.  Though the "protagonist" wasn't that great a person either.

That raises an interesting point; movies where there's a lot of moral ambiguity, it's hard to say whether the person who wins is the hero or the villain.  For example, most of Tarantino's or Leone's pictures, The Limey, and Pitch Black, you could argue that the person who wins is a villain (although the ones they were up against are even worse.)

I think that in the most of zombie movies, the zombies allways win in the end.

Point Blank with Lee Marvin is one example and also The Recruit with Al Pacino. Mr Pacino's character actually loses at the end ~ watch it and see ~ but he ultimately wins.  

The Devil's Rain and Race With The Devil are also examples ~ another IMO is First Blood where the cops (the bad guys in the film) win out over John Rambo.

* INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (remake)
* PHANTASM
* THE PARALLAX VIEW
* THE FRIENDS OF EDDIE COYLE (although, I guess this movie really doesn't have any good guys)
* SCARFACE (I guss this one doesn't have any good guys either)
* RACE WITH THE DEVIL

Movie I think (unlike most people) is mediocre:

Dutch title: Spoorloos English title: The Vanishing (1988)




One of the few movies that ever truly scared me:

French title: Ils (2006) English title: Them

Extremely good movie!

As suggested by myself above, in NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the "bad guys" are us and they "win" in the end.  This point is made much clearer in TOM SAVINI's 1990 remake.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
