Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

As an avid horror film fan, I'm always looking for new and unusual films I have yet to see. 


My favourite of the era is Tod Browning's 1932 film 'Freaks', but I was wondering what your favourite Diesel-era horror films or modern horror films with a Diesel feel are?

Thanks Larry - this is such an excellent film! And I must say, I have quite a weakness for Willem Dafoe! Eddie Izzard and Udo Kier are wonderful too.


It's nice to know there are so many fellow Horror buffs in the Dieselpunk community.

My favorite modern Diesel Era horror is Shadow of the Vampire, which is a rewriting of the making of the silent movie Nosferatu. Willem Dafoe is just amazing in it. I would go so far as to say it's a Dieselpunk horror.


How did you get those cats to stay still?


Loved that film!


Kiss Me Deadly, ostensibly a classic noir film, winds up with a fierce dose of atomic sci-fi horror.

I love Kiss Me Deadly. Great mix of Noir with certainly a touch of horror at the end.

Kiss Me Deadly?  I remember that one.

Everyone was fighting over Marcellus Wallace's briefcase.

Okay kinda stretch (really really big stretch) for diesel punk, but it does have great locations and an edge of post-apocalyptic world feel.  Split Second.



Doctor X with Lionel Atwill and Fay Wray is a good one http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0022827/. Made 1932 it's also really cool looking, being the first horror movie to use the two-strip technicolor process.

Thanks everyone! A lot of great films I'll have to check out.


If I may add another, I really enjoy the film 'Outpost'.



Ooh, they're sequelling Outpost soon :D


Whoever recommended Deathwatch? Good chap! I really enjoyed that one.
