Donnie Darko (2001)
I am not sure why. I love Donnie Darko, and he doesn't have the hair in the eyes or the overly petulant attitude but he does strike me as a little emo. Especially for the 80s.

Edward Scissorhands just strikes me as Emo, not goth.

Pauline Parker (Melanie Lynskey) in Heavenly Creatures. Keep in mind it was the 50s...

Sam Monroe (played by Hayden Christian) in "Life as a House" is more emo than punk, if you ask me...

Night Watch (2004)
The character of Anton Gorodetsky in "Night Watch" struck me as pretty emo, all things considered.





I think Yegor (the boy) was at risk of becoming an emo if he hadn't gone dark side. Which is ironic.

Jeff Matthews (played by Edward Furlong) in Pet Sematary Two struck me as an emo-kid before people knew what emo kids were.

The Lost Boys (1987)
Michael seemed emo to me, not punk or preppy, just emo...



and Laddie (the little boy with the awesome Beatles-style jacket on the back of the motorcycle in this pic) seems like an emo-in-the-making to me.



Most of the other characters in this movie are obviously punks, Michael's younger brother seems to be a prep and the "Frog Brothers" are...comic book nerds...or somethin'.

Total Eclipse (1995)
The teenage poet Arthur Rimbaud (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) in Total Eclipse was pretty damn emo.

I admit, I am not an emo. My idea of an "emo" (I may be "dead" wrong) is someone that is prone to melancholy, someone sad and perhaps a little dramatic, pale with the hair in the eyes and the self-proclaimed sensitive, deep type. So here is my list, from a non-emo.

After working on this list a bit I realized that, while I am not emo, not all emo-characters are totally irritating. Some are kind of cool. To a degree. I still wouldn't want to be stuck in a house with any of them for any extended length of time though.

I don't think any of them are bad films, just some of the characters are emo. Some are more tolerable than others.

What shit? What is stupid? I am not an emo and not into emo culture if that is what you are trying to ask. This is just a random list of characters I found "emo" in movies I have seen.

Oh, Night Watch? Yeah, I liked it actually. To each his own.
