Now through this article, I’m going to spoil as many as 10 movies for you. And, trust me, I don’t enjoy it. But I assume you’re ready for that since you’ve clicked this link. There are more than enough movies where the main character dies. That’s pretty normal, we can take that. More than one main character dying is a little hard to digest. And, then there are movies where everyone dies. Whether you’ll like them or not, or whether you’ll be able to take them or not, I don’t know. However, writing these kinds of scripts takes plenty of guts, and filming them obviously takes even more. Despite all that, there are more than a few movies that have come on the similar lines, and I rank the best of them. Here is the list of movies where everyone dies. It goes without saying, MAJOR SPOILERS ahead.

 

10. Silent Hill (2006)

‘Silent Hill’ is easily one of the best video game adaptations I’ve seen, which is to say it’s slightly less awful than the usual output. There’s obvious passion here to make something worthy of ‘Silent Hill’ – the disturbing visual design brilliantly captures the eerie atmosphere of the games. But the movie is far from being a great movie. Watch it for the atmosphere and thrills as there’s no big takeaway.

 

9. Bug (2006)

The film’s ambition seems to pay off towards the end, however, the conclusion is as a little rushed. It’s a film about paranoia and “delusional parasitosis” but underneath it is also about heartbreak, motherhood, obsession and abuse and is really quite effective. ‘Bug’ is an enjoyable movie, and it is not like most movies. While in general the way it’s setup, it should make for a fairly ugly movie, however, it’s saved by Ashley Judd and her performance.

 

8. The Crazies (2010)

I wonder how many movies have been made about a rogue biological agent running amok in a small mid-western town. Because of its brisk pacing and no-nonsense treatment of what some might call an overused formula, ‘The Crazies’, for the most part, ends up being a refreshingly honest horror entry where many others would likely fail while navigating the same territory.

 

7. The Strangers (2008)

I expected nothing from this movie but it really did surprise me. The relationship between the two characters, to begin with, is very well done which works well for the film. There are a lot of creepy bits in this film to keep us entertained. If you want a happy ending you shouldn’t have started reading this article, and you definitely must not watch this spooky, mysterious and creepy movie.

 

6. Eden Lake (2008)

‘Eden Lake’ is a film without a conscience and that is what is so good about it. It is certainly not going to be to everyone’s liking. Anyone who likes a stereotypical “Hollywood” film where everything plays out according to formula and everything wraps itself up into a nice little bow are going to be sorely disappointed. This is not a film for those types of people and I think that is terrific.

 

5. Cube (1997)

‘Cube’ explains nothing and I love that. We can decide which of the characters speculations are correct or even if any of them are. This creates a wonderfully engaging film. The special effects are actually quite good when they make an appearance and the set keeps one’s interest for the relatively brief running time. Like the early ‘Saw’ films, ‘Cube’ is greater than the sum of its parts and a wonderful example of minimalism in a film.

 

4. The Others (2001)

The movie has a weird approach to the story and this is why can catch you very easy, but there is no actual suspense until the second part of the movie. The movie is great, with a wonderful actor Nicole Kidman and an unexpected ending. The actors play their roles as they should considering that is quite hard to play a weird role and get in it to appear real. I recommend to watch but don’t get bored in the middle, just wait.

 

3. Martyrs (2008)

It seems like 2008 had been a good year for this type of films. This film really leaves an impact like no other, originally of disgust and upon second viewing pure sadness. However, I don’t recommend it to everyone due to the very challenging scenes in it, which are integral to the symbolization. Not many movies are like this, it is along the lines of ‘Dogtooth’, ‘Funny Games’, ‘Saw’, and ‘The Hostels’, but in its own right, it deserves its own individual accolades.

 

2. The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

‘Cabin in the Woods’ is a slasher movie that is specifically made for me. The makers recognize certain problems with this field and turn them neatly on their head. The characters are all nuanced, it mocks and deconstructs every single problem I have with the genre and, most gratifying of all, the film is so much deeper on a narrative and thematic level than even serious horror movies tend to go.

 

1. The Blair Witch Project (1999)

What’s there left to be said about this film, really? Divisive of its audience when it was first released, but something that has left a long and lasting impact. For its fans, it is one of the most innovative and unsettling films ever made. For its detractors, the feeling of it being all-hype has never really faded. Debates still go back and forth.  If you’re reading this and deciding whether or not to watch it, I can’t tell you anything. Experience it on your own.
