Inside a psychotic's mind in The Cell.
The town in It's a Good Life! I think it was a Twilight Zone episode.

For another planet, the Krell world in Forbidden Planet.

The Neverending Story

The part where Atreyu is walking down sand, and there two huge "greek" like statues guarding the entry and he has to get through. I found it scary, the statues were scary as well as the music and atmosphere.

The other part is when he is battling snow in a huge snow storm and he looks into a cave and he sees himself.

One world which has some grounding in reality

The Matrix

Because it feels sometimes that we are controlled somehow.

Twelve Monkeys had both worlds in one movie. The world Bruce Willis travels back to is almost as bleak as the one he left.

"Dark City"...created a very spooky, dreary world devoid of color that always ruminates with me. not really grounded in reality, but anything is possible.

"Dawn of the Dead" (78)...1) always makes me think what if we lived in a world littered with actual zombies and that it becomes a way of life, always there and growing like a virus everyday and you never know when and if you could become one and you have to watch your back every single second.

2) then the grounded in reality that we live in such a materialistic world and i very much add to that almost everyday, shamefully!

Children of Men. It actually seems plausible and that is what makes it scary.

That's one I thought of as well. I'd go with good ol' Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. If kids only knew half of what was going on they'd probably be fucked up for a good while once they came to the realizations. Just when you think you're at your safest and funnest moment ..... WHAMMM!!!

The perfect society of Gattaca always bugged me as well.

I gotta agree. There's something very unsettling about all the clutter and tubes and vents that just make that world completely unnerving.


I'll add Eraserhead - That world is so darn creepy!
