The sky looks dark and it looks like it's going to be a stormy night. I'm trying to look up a good movie, to watch, either horror or horror comedy. A thriller or a good, dark whodunit would also do the trick. No supernatural flicks though - bore the hell out of me. I'd consider TV series too. Any suggestions?

Edit: I'm going to start adding the suggestions I received below so that anybody looking for a movie on a stormy night can see the the suggestions in one post - hopefully it will keep growing.

It is an older one, but if you haven't seen it, you should watch Se7en. Definitely a dark movie, and has thriller and horror elements.

Kurasawa's Yojimbo and Sergio Leone's Fistful of Dollars with Clint Eastwood. They are the same movie, scene for scene. One is samarai movie with sword play and the other is a spaghetti western with guns.

Yesssss. This is great stuff. I love Kurosawa. The Hidden Fortress and Star Wars are also basically the same plot. George Lucas borrowed heavily from Kurosawa for his own screen play. Fun to watch both together as well...
