Sorry for the overused title, but i couldn't think of anything else...

But im having trouble recalling movies where Evil actually wins in the end...?
I fear I am terribly overlooking many titles at the moment but I honestly cannot think of any.. :confused:

Though I know of thousands which I wish the "Bad guy" was the triumphant :D

For instance "The Omen" Trilogy... If Damien would have prevailed in the end, I believe the movies would have meant soo much more to me.

I guess it depends on your definition of winning.

Would just getting away alive count as winning even if they didnt kill the hero or succeed with their plans? Here's some i could think of:

SPOILERS:
Jeepers Creepers
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning
Saw (Basically all of them)
The Midnight Meat Train
Halloween (If were talking about just getting away)
Joy Ride and Joy Ride 2 (Same as Halloween)
Ils (Them)
Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1978)
Slaughter
Dread
END OF SPOILERS

Just to name a few

At first I was like blank....? till I tilted the screen.. interesting trick.

I should have specified:

By "Evil" I meant a Paranormal/ Supernatural being... not people (like zombies for instance)

And by "Winning" I meant the antagonist's ideals and ultimate goal succeeds and the tables are turned to said "evil".

And on a fun note: My cousin is in Midnight Meat Train :cool:

Well Zombies are technically Supernatural i guess, not that i mentioned any. I'll try and think of some more.

Who's your cousin and who did they play?
That's awesome by the way :)

Idk I see "todays" zombies at least, as accidents, with all the chemical zombie apocalyptic settings in movies lately.

My cousin is named Allen Maldonado and he played the "Head Thug" in the movie... i believe he dies tho, he usually does in the roles he gets haha

Mimesis. A movie your cousin is going to be in. Sounds like fun.

IMDB Desc: A group of horror fans find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.


If you can please get me a dvd of this :P

The obvious one and why its my fave movie:
Spoiler
The Beyond-yes there are zombies in this-but they are a red herring-hell opens up and that's where the survivors end up.End spoiler
