The only thing that comes to mind, that is kind of dark and high fantasy is an old Bakshi (I think it was him) movie from the 70s called Fire & Ice. A good sword and sorcery animated film.

The Witcher,evil dead movies lol,Dantes inferno is what comes to mind.

Fire and Ice is not dark fantasy?

A Song of Ice and Fire (or HBO's Game of Thrones) is still a dark fantasy.... And it's very good

Berserk Manga is very similar in tone except more violent and a better story. It's my favorite manga, though unfinished. Many people who don't like anime/manga still quite like it.

The Witcher series is awesome.

Someone recommended The Name of the Rose. It's a very good movie, but it's definitely not fantasy. It's a medieval drama.

And I can't see how someone would recommend the Evil Dead movies (when only Army of Darkness has some similarities) and say that ASoIaF is not like it.
