Poll: Bleakest dystopian films

Which film has the bleakest dystopian future?

Would you consider ignorance as bliss in the Matrix? Or would you be uncomfortable leaving earth or being left behind in Blade Runner or Total Recall? Or a destroyed planet as in The Road?

Perhaps cannibalism worries you the most as in Delicatessen? Or perhaps it is just the overall big brother, totalitarian feel many of these films give you?

Pick the scariest future.
