    Lightbulb AI, My Dog Skip, Tuck Everlasting, and Schindler's List

    Okay, the movie that has totally messed me up for life is AI: Artificial Intelligence. I loved the story, but the flesh fair and the end has scared me more than any horror movie I have ever seen. I can't even watch the film when it is on anymore because I burst out crying. Someone has to be with me on this vote.

    My Dog Skip is another one to add to this list. I am a huge animal lover, so this is why this one effected me in such a deep way. I lost my best friend, my young Chihuahua Brandy, to cancer this past September 11th, and this film will always remind me of her. Before she got sick, she sat on my lap the first time I saw this film. Of course, I felt comforted to have the other half of my heart with me. However, since her death this film makes me cry even harder than when I originally saw it.

    I admit it, I did enjoy the new Tuck Everlasting. I thought that the end of this film was pretty sad, as well. It wasn't as emotionally scaring, but it was damn sad. The end really shocked me, considering I hadn't read the book.

    The last film that gets me every time I see it is Schindler's List. What a heartbreaking film. I always need my puffs with me for this film. I think enough is said on that...

    Revenge and True Romance (with the alternate ending).

    If there was a dvd feature that allowed you to play that whole move through and then switch out the Tony Scott ending with Tarantino's ending there wouldn't be a dry eye anywhere.

    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...
    Yes, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is a film that has to be experienced to be believed. I've seen depressing films, but I can honestly say that I've not experienced anything like this film. The last 30 minutes is just a rollercoaster ride into utter dispair. It must have touched something inside me, because I felt depressed for a full day after seeing this film. It's a great film, but I have not been able to bring myself to look at it again...

    I didn't find this one nearly as depressing as another film in a similiar vein, CHRISTIANE F., a German film about a 14 year old heroin addict turned prostitute to support her habit. This one is depressing throughout and I highly recommend the film. I firmly believe that this one should be required viewing for 12-20 year olds.

    Wow...I'm going to have to agree with you again on that one. I was in complete shock during this entire movie. The imagery, the lack of colours, and the ultra-depressing message this movie put out definitely left a lasting impression on me. I think it's safe to say that i was "disturbed".

    It didn't help that my wife was sitting there going "What do you think of your precious Jennifer Connelly NOW?
