** Ensemble is hardly the [[UniversalHorror first]] or even the [[HammerHorror second]] studio to get pigeonholed, either.

* Creator/DavidLynch: MindScrew. Lots and lots of MindScrew. Weirdly, for a few years in the early 1980s, he was considered a mainstream Oscar-friendly director after the success of ''Film/TheElephantMan'' (although even it is a little on the weird side, and apparently nobody had seen [[Film/{{Eraserhead}} his debut picture]]), which is why they gave him the ''Literature/{{Dune}}'' movie. After that flopped, he dove right back into the MindScrew, and - with the exception of ''Film/TheStraightStory'' - never looked back, and has been getting progressively weirder since the late '90s.

Added namespaces.
* Creator/DavidFincher: Expect it to be gritty, stylish, morally murky, and concerning criminal goings-on (TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton is the only outright exception so far, TheSocialNetwork fits the bill aside from the grittiness and ''direct'' criminality - the FramingDevice are two lawsuits against Mark, and he does some nasty stuff in his path)

He actively tried to hide his involvement with ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'', because [[GenreSavvy he knew it would tip off the fans]].

* Creator/WesAnderson and Noah Baumbach are best known as "those guys who make quirky comedies about dysfunctional families". However, Anderson's movies are much more mainstream and colorful than Baumbach's (who abides by TrueArtIsAngsty).

* RolandEmmerich: sci-fi or regular action movies with lots of destruction. He also seems to love TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. When he decided to break the mold with ''Anonymous'', it was met with indifference.
