A Bridge Too Far

If you consider the Germans the bad guys, then, yeah...




Invasion of the Body Snatchers (the one with Donald Sutherland)

Greatest reveal at the end of a movie, ever, I think.

Not only was Roxie a murderer, she was a completely despicable character from beginning to end.  I had a small degree of sympathy for Velma, but none for Roxie. 

Good one.

That is true, but his victory is very deservedly short lived...

Terminator 3.  They were trying to destroy Skynet's central core, but they found out that it was just software existing in cyberspace.  And it launched the nukes.  Okay, not really a bad "guy", but that's all I could think of  TeddyR

I'm not sure if it counts, but the remake of Halloween 2.  Oh sure, hobo Mike gets killed, but he succeeds in driving his sister nuts, to the point where she has to be committed and starts seeing visions.  The movie is bad and the ending is already pretty crappy in my book, but when I thought about it as the villian winning in some sense, it felt like an extra kick in the nuts to me.

Pete Walker's FRIGHTMARE.  We can't be sure if the heroine is killed at the end but it really doesn't look good..

Not really a bad guy?  Uhm... if THE THING comes to Earth again, she-it can live next door to you.   Wink
Well, we could have a discussion about the morality of THE THING...was it really 'evil' or just doing its thing to survive?  That we ascribe OUR morality to it based on our own speciocentrism (I love making up words) does not make it transcendentally a 'bad guy.'
I think it's just adorable you edit what I write...  Wink  Setting aside its "thing to survive," which it most certainly is doing, THE THING is a threat to every life form on Earth.  I'm with the humans, philosophically subjective as I am, torch the f**ker.  Yeh.  It's a bad guy.  

I love the darkness of the ending - it was perfect and is the real payoff of the movie (not the big creature finale)...on the commentary, it was mentioned someone suggested a helicopter rescue or some such, and I am SO GLAD they did not go that route.
We agree this is a remake that stands on its own.  

Why are we only talking about "The Thing" in its Carpenter version?  It is a remake, after all, and the original "Thing From Another World/aka Who Goes There?" was very much a bad guy vs. good guy scenario and the good guys won.
Uhm... because the thread is called "Movies where the bad guy(s) win(s) at the end..."  Wink

Actually you've reminded me about Halloween 3 (if it hasn't been mentioned yet  that is).  The commercial still goes off and apparently many kids have their head turn out by bugs and snakes.

I think that in the most of zombie movies, the zombies allways win in the end.
Like Dawn of the Dead, Zombie 2, The Dead Next Door...
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. 

hehe... one day the humans will win... :)

    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.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
