RE: What is the most disturbing film you have ever seen?


^I've always wanted to see Cannibal Holocaust for that reason, but nobody has wanted to watch it with me because of the animals, and honestly I think it would bother me too, but I'm curious... I weirdly loved I Spit on Your Grave as a young teen (despite the rape bits, could have done without that, but I did like the ending) but I watched it a year or two ago and was triggered out of my mind. Of course now I'm stuck with it on DVD! Anyway, not sure about that one, but I think it's at least better than the similar Last House on the Left - have you seen that one? I'd like to hear how you think they compare. If not, add it to the list of pointlessly horrific films that you won't enjoy!

^ The animals bit bothered me, until I found out that the animals killed were eaten afterwards (including the monkey, the tribe ate it). It was still a bit uncomfortable for me to watch them being killed, but as a person who eats meat, I can't really complain!

The first bit of I Spit On Your Grave was pretty horrid and plodding to watch, but once it got into the second bit, some of it was so ridiculous that it was comedic - I've just finished watching it a minute ago, and I did end up finding it amusing enough. I couldn't quite figure out what the tone was supposed to be, or what point they were trying to make! Is it supposed to be empowering, or was it just a way of packing in lots of varied gore?

The Eye (not the remake!) is one of the scarier Asian horror films. The end disturbed my greatly but it's one of my favorite horror films.

The Cement Garden left me with a feeling of lingering distaste. I can't abide incest, I just can't. The whole film had a sticky, summer afternoon feeling, the kind where you sit indoors feeling uncomfortable and your head throbs with the heat. I don't know what to make of it even now!

It's not a film, but the first episode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror trilogy disturbed me on so many levels. The princess gets kidnapped and as ransom the prime minster of Britain has to have sex with a pig live on TV. Even though the concept sounds kind of ridiculous, it's played out in such a realistic, what-if-this-actually-happened manner that it made me feel sick watching it. It's on Netflix but I don't think I could bring myself to ever watch it again :/

White Bear was a pretty horrifying episode too!

I finally saw the original "I Spit On Your Grave" on Netflix and I actually liked it although the rape and assault scenes were really hard for me to get through but the revenge scenes made it more than worth it.

"I Spit On Your Grave" & "Last House On The Left" Spoilers:

Oh, that ending :p  I didn't personally find Martyrs bad when compared with other "disturbing" movies, but if you go into it without knowing it's one of those, I think you'd be scarred for life!

The Poughkeepsie Tapes really, really disturbed me. It was the home invasion part that got me the most as I'm already terrified of that. I watched it years ago on YouTube and it's never left my brain.

*shudders*

I don't think it came out on DVD or anything so here is a link to it:

^Thank you for the link! Sadly it no longer works but I will keep an eye out for the film. I, too, am terrified of home invasion, but I will still watch a film involving it if I think the film itself is usefully disturbing. In terms of home invasion movies I genuinely wouldn't recommend, I really didn't like Cherry Tree Lane. I didn't like what it was saying about society, at all. I am a huge fan of horror and find lots of horror films either entertaining or cathartic, but I found Cherry Tree Lane disturbing because I think it needed either more or less social context for its subject matter in order to not feel like it was mining the social challenges of young adults in poverty for the purposes of Daily Mail fear.

I think I've already posted in this thread before, but I found 'Martyrs' interestingly disturbing. As others have said, it's torture porn, no doubt about it. However, I've enjoyed having conversations with people about what the last part of the film means to us. There's more than one take on it, and a number of people who've watched it have found different messages that helped them get through the film that were all very different interpretations of what the hell was going on.

As a definite thumbs-up, I found "Get Out" disturbing in all the right ways. Makes you eek, makes you think. Every point hit home, I was gripping the chair arms in fear at one point!
