Dark, Death, and Dead.

by AvsJoe | created - 16 Apr 2013 | updated - 1 month ago | Public

These are the movies I've seen beginning with one of these three words. It's become a game of mine to seek out films with these titles because they tend to be enjoyably terrible films. Does not include movies whose original titles do not start with one of those words (Dead Alive [Braindead], Dead Snow [Død Snø], Death Rides a Horse [Da Uomo a Uomo]) or titles beginning with 'The' or 'A'.
