If you ever came across a building that sent shivers down your spine and looked like something from a dystopian movie, the chances are you encountered an ‘evil building.’ No, we are not saying it’s possessed or anything, but it probably landed in the most villainous collection of architectural wonders on Reddit.

Welcome to Evil Buildings, a subreddit that celebrates structures, houses and establishments that could easily be home to a super villain or evil corporation. Created in 2016, it now has a whopping 904k members and it’s likely to hit a million some time soon.

So get into the Halloween mood, scroll down and upvote your favorite ones!

No wonder there’s a whole subreddit dedicated to evil-looking buildings that has a whopping 904k members. A dystopian architecture has been capturing our imagination for years, especially in movies. Think of Blade Runner’s Tyrell Corporation or Robocop’s Omni Consumer Products, the aesthetics of dystopian capitalism is a staple of many films’ key antagonists.

According to 99percentvisible, what’s fascinating about the evil megacorporation is that its architectural aesthetic has remained virtually unchanged throughout its history: brooding Late Modernist (AKA High-tech or Structural Expressionist) buildings have become a well-worn trope, reaching a peak during the sci-fi smorgasbord of the 80s.

It's a temple door in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India. It's Padmanabhaswamy Temple. It had 6 underground vaults that were found in recent history and only this one remains unopened. $22 billion worth of gold was unearthed from other chambers, but only this one could not be opened. It's said that it's locked with 'naga paasam mantra' spell. Only a sage who can recite the Garuda mantra in proper way is fabled to open it.

When it comes to a specific architectural period, Modernism has always been at the forefront of a sinister movie. Fritz Lang’s Metropolis with its Art Deco styling and Bond villain’s house are great examples. Other architectural periods of evil corporations include Late Modernism as seen in Evil, Inc. which was inspired by architecture between 1960 and 1980.

The plasma-propelled house simply flies off when the owner is off to work, blowing up planets of underdeveloped civilizations, exploiting their resources, and enslaving the population. The house is complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, seventeen photon torpedos, and one planet-killer beam.
