Well it's not really a horror but the concept is really terrifying it is based on the H.G. Wells novel Shape the Way and Things to Come like Metropolis it was one of the first movies to define a dystopia, H.G.

(OK) Huge set imagination by Wells, Menzies and Korda. Not just in the futuristic sets, includin a rocket to the moon, and skycity; but in the pestilence/barbarism 1970 segment, anticipating the Mad max kind of aestetics...

Slant's 100 Best Sci-Fi Movies of All Time (100 movies items)

"From first to last, Things to Come was intended to bear the unmistakable stamp of H.G. Wells’s personal vision. Adapted by the legendary science-fiction novelist from his nonfiction book of “future history” entitled The Shape of Things to Come, both book and film are earnest attempts to foretell the future, extrapolating from current conditions in the 1930s the course of human events over a 100-year period. William Cameron Menzies’s visual aesthetic is characterized by angular compositio"
