10 David Lynch-Like Movies Not by David Lynch

David Lynch has a cinema of his own, a cinema so familiar yet strange that can only be described as Lynchian. His trademarks are his fascination with dark secrets of small cities, his taste for low/middle frequency noise, dark and rotting environments, distorted characters, a polarized world (angels vs. demons, Madonnas vs. whores), debilitating damage to the skull or brain, his use of slow-motion during key scenes of violence, abundant usage of red curtains, strobe lights, extreme surrealism and his interest in close-ups of eyes.
If you look at his movies from "Eraserhead" and "Blue Velvet" to "Lost Highway" and "Inland Empire", you will find almost all these elements present. This list introduces 10 movies that are not directed by David Lynch, but have used Lynchian elements abundantly.
