“Dark” movies, for dark days (and a bonus trailer)

Here it is, mid-June in Seattle, and it never got light yesterday. (I had the day off, so no P &P from me; was busy trying to come to terms with the ending of “The Killing” — um, what? — and the whole general concept of “Bunheads.”) And it seems likewise gloomy today. I don’t really mind the gray weather — no worries about sunscreen, and it’s easier to sleep in — but it does seem to make people a bit cranky. So I’m sitting here playing a little parlor game: How many movies do I know with the word “Dark” in them? Without using IMDB or any online search engine (that’s cheating), or even a Maltin’s Movie Guide (that’s still cheating), here are a few off the top of my head:
“The Dark Knight Rises”
“The Dark Knight”
“Dark Shadows”
“Dark Water”
“After Dark” (Is that a movie? Or am I thinking of “After Hours”?)
“Darkness Falls”
“Wait Until Dark”
“A Cry in the Dark”
“The Dark at the Top of the Stairs”
“Dark Victory”
. . . and I’m sure there’s some totally obvious ones that I’m missing, but I’ll stop at ten. For those who’ve read this far, here’s a bonus: the new “Dark Knight Rises” trailer. Not much sunshine there, no?
