Top 5 Dystopias

A dystopia, in my opinion, is a world that is set up to be a utopia, but is actually the opposite – or becomes the opposite.  There are some rules for such a dystopia.  In it, there should be a vision of society that could be chaotic because of no control or grim/bleak because of oppressive control.  I’ve ruled out any movies set in space.  Zombie movies count for the purposes of this list.
