This contemporary collection of mysteries are so dark you'll need to turn up the screen brightness on your laptop. Make sure to check out 'Stonehearst Asylum' for a fantastic horror/thriller based on a short-story by Edgar Allen Poe.
One of the worst collections you could ever watch with a friend on LSD: these post 2000 flicks delve into the darkest recesses of the human psyche, through fantastic imagery and nightmarish storylines.
Irreverant, gruff, and Irish to the bone - most know Brendan Gleeson from his collaborations with John Michael McDonagh, but his filmography has plenty more to offer in the form of lesser known Irish independent gems such as 'Perrier's Bounty' and 'I Went Down'.
Modern movies in the vein of 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen': watch Victorian-era gentlemen battle Machiavellian evil-geniuses, woefully under-equipped colonial foes, and, the greatest enemy of all: their own emotions. Oh, and yes, we realize not all fit directly in to the Victorian era - pedants!
Thrillers in the style of 'Seven': Watch police detectives play cat-and-mouse with some seriously twisted felines in a complex dance between hunter and hunted, where the roles are often reversed. Check out 'Crimson Rivers' for an overlooked foreign gem starring Jean Reno!
