10. The Cure

Top 10 Feel Bad Movies
It’s not cute, he lost the ability to walk

In the running for most misleading title of all time, this movie is about a little boy with cancer and his river adventures to find a reported cure. Only there is no cure, that’s the point. He finds true bromance instead. And they swap shoes. This is supposed to symbolize something. I think it’s meant to symbolize chemotherapy.

9. Where the Red Fern Grows

The dog dies. But it’s alright, ’cause a parasitic plant feeds off his decaying nutrients. Tell that to your kids when they ask where Buffy went for the summer.

8. A Simple Plan

Guess which one eats a bullet

Proof that capitalism turns normal people into rage infected greed zombies. A group of blue collar folks find a bag of money and are completely incapable of dealing with it. For a sum that would barely cover a car payment in Los Angeles, they fight, shoot, bludgeon, and smother their way into hell.

And for some reason, the hero has to kill his retarded brother at the end. Not sure why.

7. A Clockwork Orange

Hello sir, we’re here to pick up your daughter

There is a rumor that Anthony Burgess wrote an extra chapter where Alex is actually cured and becomes a better person. Instead, Kubrick’s vision treats us to Malcolm McDowell fantasizing about public rape.

6. Night of the Living Dead

Guess which one eats a bullet

Another addition to the “humanity sucks” genre, not only does Night of the Living Dead feature a bunch of corpses that rise from the dead to devour their loved ones (including a young girl who tries to eat her own mother), but the film’s sole survivor is an African-American man who walks out into the clear, pure, majestic sunshine … and is shot by a racist cop.

    Good list! Pretty much any zombie movie can qualify. Though then ending to Night of the living Dead is up there with most depressing endings ever, I think Dawn of the Dead (1977) is more of a feel bad movie. That movie starts out with the main character waking up from a nightmare, then it only gets worse.

    *Author’s Note*

    Totally had a brain hiccup. The Cure is about AIDS, not cancer.

    My list still stands as Canon, however.

    I think The Mist should have been on top. A father shooting hes own son thinking everyone is dead and that thats the best thing he could do for him and a minute later finding out there is other survivors thats some cold S**t.

    If I were to add anything to this list, it would be The Plague Dogs. From the author of Watership Down comes the story of two dogs that escape from a medical testing facility. Since the dogs are carrying the bubonic plague, enforcers are sent out to kill them before they can spread the disease.

    It’s kind of like Homeward Bound, except instead of two dogs and a cat, it’s just two dogs. And instead of them reaching home and being reunited with their family, one’s shot to death and the other drowns while trying to escape his captors.

    Also, it’s animated, so it probably traumatized a bunch of kids and their unsuspecting parents.

    How about ‘Very Bad Things’…that movie was totally screwed up. Everyone got a crappy life in the end.

    Good list, BUT “The Clockwork Orange” ‘rumor’ of the extra chapter is NOT a “rumor.” It’s as factual as it gets. Burgess had the book divided into 3 sections of 7 chapters. The last chapter was removed, even though Burgess protested, when it was first published. However, the book in its entirety, including chapter 21 has been published (I own it) and is readily available at Barnes and Noble.
