* ''Film/HighNoon'':
** Hadleyville, the town, where Marshal Kane asks for the town's help to stop a returning villain and his gang. Only his pacifist wife and a 14-year-old kid tried to help him. {{Lampshaded}} by the judge:
--> ''"This is just a dirty little village in the middle of nowhere. [[DespairEventHorizon Nothing that happens here is really important]]. [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Now get out.]]"''
** TheWildWest in general is a crapsack world where killing is an everyday occurrence.

* ''Film/TheHumanCondition:'' set in Manchuria nearing the close of WWII - a situaion which was a RealLife living hell for soldiers and civilians.
* ''Film/HoboWithAShotgun'': "[[SarcasmMode Hope Town]]" makes most WretchedHive cities look like [[TheAndyGriffithShow Mayberry]] in comparison. Not only are the local crime lord and his two sons the epitome of evil, and not only are the cops on the take from these guys and [[PoliceBrutality viciously corrupt to boot]], the {{Gorn}} levels and general depravity by the rest of the population is through the roof. And there's only ONE good person in the film who isn't a vigilante or a victim of some kind (a police officer), and he's only on screen for a couple of seconds.

* Post-WWII Berlin in ''Film/AForeignAffair''. It's played straight at times, since some of the residents were happy when the Americans turned on the gas... so they could kill themselves, but it also shows the resilient people of Germany who are trying to repair their destroy homes, lives, and beliefs.

* ''Film/MadMax'': This is set in a post-apocalyptic Australia where vicious biker gangs run wild, engaging in robbery, rape and murder whenever they can. The world of the sequels, ''Film/TheRoadWarrior'' and ''Film/MadMaxBeyondThunderdome'', isn't much better.

* ''Film/{{Idiocracy}}'': In the future, stupid people manage to outbreed intelligent people and so society caters to the lowest common denominator. By 2505, America is a horrifically dirty and overcrowded wasteland filled with people who are very crude, very dumb, and very hostile. In addition, starvation is rampant and dustbowls are common because crops are being irrigated by a sports energy drink, which is just [[SaltTheEarth salting the earth]], and the economy and government are in a terrible state - the Secretary of Energy is a 13-year-old boy who drinks heavily and says he got the job by winning an unspecified contest.

He's at least as competent as any other Cabinet member.

* ''Film/{{Priest}}'': The world in this movie is a world where humans and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] are at war for as long as they can both remember. Despite humanity's superior technology, the vampires continued to hold the advantage except for the fact that [[AchillesHeel sunlight kills them]]. In the end, the humans won the war but the planet is still devastated and most of humanity is still confined to one single city where the pollution is so thick that the city has a perpetual night. The humans either lived in the city which is ruled by a CorruptChurch whose rule is reminiscent of [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour Oceania]] or in the middle of the desert where they're at the mercy of being attacked by vampires. The Church won't do anything and instead covers it up because... actually, [[WhatAnIdiot no one really knows why the church indirectly helps its worst enemy]].

* ''Film/{{Brazil}}'':
** This Creator/TerryGilliam film. Imagine if Creator/MontyPython directed ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'', and you should get the general idea of how dark and twisted this movie is.
** Only the wealthy are happy, but they're all corrupt. Even then, a bureaucratic mistake could mess them up.
*** Not all the wealthy are corrupt they're just decadent and utterly moronic. And while the government in ''[[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]]'' is so terrifying because of its extreme efficiency, in ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' the horror comes from its utter incompetence and Kafkaesque bureaucratic insanity that can drive even the most ordinary people to insanity and terrorism.
