    On a more serious note...

    I think George Romero is very good at depressing endings. Night of the Living Dead has already been mentioned.

    The Crazies
    Martin
    Dawn of the Dead (to a certain extent)

    Other directors:

    Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (though you see it coming)
    The Thing (1982)
    Requiem for a Dream
    Scanners
    Videodrome
    Dead Ringers
    Dellamorte Dellamore
    Mulholland Dr.
    The Elephant Man
    Eraserhead (this whole movie has a depressing tone to it)
    New York Ripper
    Taxi Driver (to an extent)

    That's all I can think of right now...

    Although its a kind of Easy Rider in reverse Elektra Glide In blue has a fairly depressing ending.

    David Lynch's THE ELEPHANT MAN has a really depressing ending... I saw this recently when I purchased the DVD and it bothered me more when I saw it this time than when I was totally oblivious to how it would end... Simply great filmmaking by a great filmmaker.

    Endings don't get much more depressing than Day of the Locust. But of course it's not on dvd.

    And in a goofier vein, the ending of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah is pretty depressing for Godzilla fans, as it was intended at the time to be the last G film and was pretty heart-tugging at the end.

    THE ELEPHANT MAN always brings a tear to my eye, I admit. I found the ending of INSOMNIA unexpectedly sad, too.

    Yep, that one gets my vote as well.

    I just watched THE PLAGUE DOGS for the first time a couple nights ago... The ending is one of those hopeful-but-inevitably-downbeat conclusions that really got to me. If I'd seen this thing when I was 8, it would have stuck with me for years.
