Bright neon lights, shiny sharp lines, diverse animation styles, gore, violence, sex, monsters, robots, intense sound effects, photorealistic environments, animated artistry, violent masculinity, and darkness. All these words to just describe ‘Love, Death and Robots’ and I can probably use a hundred more. David Fincher has given us some of the most amazing pieces of cinema in the past like ‘Seven’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Zodiac’, and ‘Gone Girl’. Add another title to his name.
‘Love, Death and Robots’ is a series of “shorts”, that’s what David likes to call these instead of episodes. All the shorts narrate different stories that are intense, gory and R-rated. The core theme of all of these obviously being love, death, and robots. So we decided to make a list of our own that may not be exactly the same as ‘Love, Death, and Robots’ but surely has shows and movies that are NSFM (Not Safe For Mind) just like it. A warning: scroll down at your own risk, the list below may not be suitable for all. You can also watch several of these movies and shows like Love, Death and Robots on Netflix, Hulu or Aamzon Prime.
9. Elfen Lied (2004)
‘Elfen Lied’ is one of the most beautiful and graphic animes ever. It has a very rich story that will send you through a wave of emotions. The story is of a harmful genetically advanced girl named Lucy who somehow escapes the government and is later found lying naked on a beach by a university couple. The two take her in without realizing who she is and the number of dark powers that she holds within her. Lucy has a split personality and that makes it even harder for anyone to identify the truth that she hides deep within her. But this one is surely not for the faint-hearted because of the amount of gore and nudity has, but isn’t that the whole point of this list? Still, watch this at your own risk.
8. Fate/Zero (2011)
Seven Magi are chosen to get a chance to win a Holy Grail. Each Magi orders a group of superheroes to fight against each other and eventually win the holy grail that holds the ability to grant any wish of its owner. The intense game of survival between all of them leads to the most brutal and disturbing wars. This anime series has a beautiful storyline backed up with some really amazing music. The anime also has the darkest characters with really dark stories revolving around them. Watch this if only you can look past some very disturbing characters and bloody scenes.
