View Full Version : Most disturbing film

i've seen some messed up movies in my day - not including horror flicks. just wanted to see what kind of cracked out movies you guys have seen so i can add to my psychosis.

1. gummo - from the delightful mind of the guy that brought us kids. without a doubt the most disturbing movie ever made. this movie is basically a redneck version of kids. it includes delinquents putting shards of glass in cat food to kill strays for chinese restaurants and pimping out their retarded sister to neighborhood kids. viewer beware.

2. very bad things - this movie goes from zero to stressful in a hurry. about a group of guys that accidentally kill an escort at a bachelor party and their attempts to cover it up. great cast and definitely worth checking out.

3. trainspotting - this was ewan macgregor's break out flick. heroin is the best way to explain the plot. the scene with the baby crawling on the roof and spinning his head around gave me nightmares - which is not an easy thing to do.

4. kids - this movie freaked out parents everywhere. i did not necessarily like this movie and was deeply offended by it - so it did its job. this is probably the only movie on this list that i wouldn't recommend.

5. fear and loathing in las vegas - based on hunter s thompson's classic book about a drugged out writer and his lawyer in vegas. i saw this movie in the theater my junior year of high school sober as a priest - and somehow i was stoned at the end without the aid of any drugs. so many great scenes in this movie - depp and del toro were fantastic.

6. requiem for a dream - another heroin movie that is almost as disturbing as trainspotting. the bizarre cast of leto, wayans, and connelly as drug addicts and how convincing they were added to how extra disturbing this movie was. i will never forget the scene with ellen burstyn freaking out in her apartment on diet pills.

7. a clockwork orange - kubrick's original masterpiece about an english thug and his comeuppance. this is a movie you have to see before you die - it's a classic.

8. american history x - this is in my top 20 favorites - it's about neo nazis in venice beach. norton became one of my favorite actors after i saw it. do not watch the curb stomping scene if you are squeamish.

9. full metal jacket - there are so many disturbing war movies i figured one needed to be on the list. war is fun.

10. willy wonka and the chocolate factory - this is one of those movies that you see later in life and you realize that - having watched it many times as a child - you never really had a chance to be normal. i will never understand how it is considered a kid's movie.

i didn't include horror (freaks, henry: portrait of a serial killer, the last house on the left) or horror-esque movies (natural born killers, american psycho) because there are just too many to list.

i also didn't put jesus camp on the list because no one should see that movie under any circumstances. ever.

A Clockwork Orange is definitely a great mention.

And certainly there are very disturbing scenes in Full Metal Jacket, American History X.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory never really struck me as "disturbing". But i'll give you a Kids movie that does......The Lion King! Some of the deaths in that movie are pretty damn disturbing. Scar's betrayal of his brother Mufasa and allowing him to fall to the Wilderbeast Stampede, and then the eventual death of Scar when he ends up fed to the Hyenas in the very dark firey setting at the end!

Also Tarzan when Clayton breaks his neck on a vine at the end.....that's sick, Disney is sick!

I never saw Requiem for a Dream but my friends tells me the whole movie is disturbing.

How about The Deer Hunter and the break down of Christopher Walken?

disney does have some pretty disturbing flicks. i think alice in wonderland probably leads the pack in that department. movie was nuts.

if i were to continue that list then the deerhunter, deliverance, and taxi driver would definitely be on there. the russian roulette scene in deerhunter was awesome. christopher walken is one of my favorites.

2 girls 1 cup counts even less that jesus camp. :wink: i went to a halloween party this year and 2 girls actually dressed like that - and they were cute. the costume wasn't disgusting but it was the thought that counts.

well that's 2 votes for midnight express. i need to see that one again - i don't remember being all that disturbed by it for some reason.

If you can stand a movie in a different language (and subtitles are not a problem) then try "City of God".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_God_(film) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_God_%28film%29)

If we are doing trippy stuff, than definitely Pink Floyd: The Wall. That movie made me feel disoriented afterwards. I think I felt what it would feel like to be trippin on some mushrooms.

Pretty intense.

I loved A Clockwork Orange though if they followed the book, it would've been much more disturbing.

Requiem of a Dream really made me uncomfortable at times.

eraserhead and freaks were great. i didn't count 'horror' movies because there are just so many - but they'd both be in the top 20.

pee wee's big adventure was on at like 2 in the morning the other night on some channel in the hundreds and i was just drunk enough that i didn't change it. another one of those movies you happen to watch when you're older and all of a sudden the weird things you do make a little more sense.

i haven't seen ichi the killer. i'll have to check that one out.

I'd like to throw one out there. It's a little off base because it's a documentary, but it's the most disturbing film I've ever watched. It's called, The Thin Blue Line. I highly recommend it.

For those that haven't seen it, it's a documentary about a man that was convicted of killing a cop in Dallas back in the 70's. The documentary interviews everybody that was involved, from the judge, attorneys, witnesses, suspects, police, etc. My jaw dropped probably a dozen times as a reaction to what some of the people were saying on camera. I don't want to give too much away, but if you watch the movie do a quick wiki search to see what comes of it all.

Here's the tagline I pulled from imbd.com: A softcore movie, Dr. Death, a chocolate milkshake, a nosey blonde and "The Carol Burnett Show." Solving this mystery is going to be murder.

Has to be Eraserhead for me, directed by David Lynch. Very hard to describe...industrial noise for the soundtrack, mutated baby kept in a drawer that cries incessantly and a roast chicken moving on the plate spewing out black goo.

i was forced to watch one a few days ago that might well be my new #1 on that list. it's an atrocity called 'teeth' that only came out a few years ago. it's about this girl that has teeth in her vagina - and doesn't know it - and starts biting dicks off once she starts having sex. disturbing doesn't even cover it - intensely graphic shots of dudes getting their junk ripped off. almost as uncomfortable was how much the girl enjoyed it that made me watch it.

Finally got around to watching the French horror flick Martyrs (I think somebody mentioned it on the previous page). HO-LEEEEEE CRAP! These French horror movies are kicking all kinds of butt.

http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2011/05/martyrs-1.jpg

The first half starts out as a revenge flick but then turns into something completely different. Some people seem to HATE the sudden switch while others go with it. Personally, I just fast forwarded through some of the second half (it's pretty much a 15 minute, dialogue free montage of a girl getting beat and tortured...seriously). It was still powerful though.

You're either going to like or hate this thing. I liked it, but be warned...it's not for every taste. The French are pretty ****ed up.

I've been watching some of these movies you guys have mentioned recently. Gotta say I loved most of them (I don't know, but I always like these intense movies the most). I esp. liked requiem for a dream, American History X (moved up into one of my favorites right away), and martyrs. Watching Event Horizon I noticed that Cooper looks alot like our very own Vontae Davis (maybe its just me).

Finally got around to watching the French horror flick Martyrs (I think somebody mentioned it on the previous page). HO-LEEEEEE CRAP! These French horror movies are kicking all kinds of butt.

The first half starts out as a revenge flick but then turns into something completely different. Some people seem to HATE the sudden switch while others go with it. Personally, I just fast forwarded through some of the second half (it's pretty much a 15 minute, dialogue free montage of a girl getting beat and tortured...seriously). It was still powerful though.

You're either going to like or hate this thing. I liked it, but be warned...it's not for every taste. The French are pretty ****ed up.

I actually think this is a Canadian movie. Or am I wrong?

Requiem for a Dream...

This movie disturbed me so much that I have only seen it one time..

I have been unable to watch it since the first time I saw it...

Slasher movies never get me..or even blood and guts..But women being exploited in films always was revolting to me.

A documentary called "Jesus Camp".

Watch it, then weep for the future of humanity...

i specifically mentioned this one in the first post of this thread. i don't think anyone should ever watch that movie. i wanted to murder random strangers after that travesty. the hell is wrong with people?

OK. I've been hearing about Jesus Camp for a while. I'm going to watch it right now. I'll come back here when I'm done.

Now that I've had time to collect my thoughts on Jesus Camp, I guess it's time I regurgitate them here as I have a lot of them.

I was as stunned as any of you who have seen it were immediately after watching it. I never knew there was a borderline boot camp for militant neo-puritanism. But at the same time, I was very saddened. This movie was somewhat of a flashback for me and probably was for a lot of other people too. Although it wasn't as bat**** insane as these people were, I was raised in a very similar environment. I used to do a number of the things you see those kids doing in that film. Pledging allegiance to the Christian flag and the bible in my little Christian school in Hobe Sound, FL., being force-fed the far-right's incessant and creepy infatuation with Israel (I noticed the kids holding an Israeli flag during their pledges), being taught that the earth is only 6,000 years old. Going back to Hobe Sound (as I did twice in the last year) as an adult now is pretty amazing. It's like going back to the 50s. But I also remember saving up all my money so I could buy the Pokemon Red Version for my GameBoy and loving every minute of playing it with my cousin who also had it, but then having my mother constantly breathing down my neck and taking it away from me as punishment when I acted out in even the slightest fashion mainly because she was afraid that the Pokemon were somehow "satanic" according to some email forwards. I remember being around kids like that little rat-tailed kid throughout my childhood and teenage years and then having one of my best friends morph into a carbon-copy of that kid right before HS seemingly overnight.

But the saddest part of that whole documentary, was the two little 9-10 year old girls. ****ing adorable, but man. Just wow. I wonder how they are now 5 years later.

Now the best part, was the Ted Haggard bit. Living out here right in the belly of this beast while that whole scandal erupted was the thing legends are made of. I was forced to go to New Life several times while that guy was still there and just thinking that something was a little "off" about him. Not to mention all the self-righteous "New Lifers" I had to endure at school and all over town. When we heard about that scandal, we were in the locker room right before football practice (at a Christian school mind you). Laughing, giggling, cracking jokes about hiring a few ripped dudes to come down and massage our weiners after practice. And then the biggest, most overt "New Life Insider" comes down into the room with this despondent look on his face and it gets silent and we're like, "Oh. Hey man. Heard anything new?"

The major death scene in "Ghost Ship" was pretty mesmerizing to me.

Two more come to mind to me because they could really happen and they were both freaky eerie.

The Strangers and The Last House On The Left.

I overlooked it by accident, probably because it wasn't numbered like the rest. I'm the opposite, I think EVERYONE should watch it. That way they see how bat sh*t crazy these evangelicals are...
