Danny and Oxide Pang, twin brothers from Hong Kong, hit the jackpot with this supernatural thriller. Remake rights have been picked up by Tom Cruise's company. You'll think of The Ring as well as The Sixth Sense, but the Pangs spin their own unique sense of dread. Lee Sin-je is hauntingly good as Mun, a girl whose sight has been restored by a corneal transplant. That's when she starts seeing things. Revealing more would be unfair, except to say that the Pangs deliver enough shivery scares to keep you up nights. Eyes wide shut.

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
