Dystopian/Apocalyptic ''Bad Future'' Fiction

A few things to consider...

1) I take the original meaning of the word dystópos (δυστόπος) as basis, which is ''bad place''.

I know this is a little vague but there is still an ongoing discussion about the traits of a dystopian fiction.

Also there can be debates about which environment is ''bad'' and for who. For example, the idea of living in the violent post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max might frighten most of us, but for edgy anarchist punks, it might be their dream world.

However, in this list, any film/series that depict a horrid environment that is undesirable (for most people) does count.

With that being said, minority opinions such as ''x is a utopia for me'' etc.…
