what are some of the most disturbing films you have ever seen? i am talking about so disturbing that you needed to take a bath afterwords -- movies that you are ashamed after watching.

:)

for me:

--August Underground series -- especially the 2nd one Mordum: It is unbelievable how vile and disturbing Mordum is. I really can't imagine anything worse than the stuff that happens in the film. I felt like I had committed some crime after I watched the movie.

--Cannibal Holacaust -- the infamous film that i am certain all horror fans have heard of. It certainly lives up to the hype -- it is damn disturbing and I felt unclean after seeing it. The musical score it has sounds really weird with this type of movie.

--I Spit on Your Grave -- just read Roger Ebert's review -- http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/19800716/REVIEWS/7160301/1023 they should have just titled the film "Gang Rape"

--Murder Set Pieces (UNRATED) -- that is the key word (unrated) -- don't get the (R) version. German Nazi photographer who is a psychopath. i think the gore was done by the same guy that did August Underground.

--Men Behind the Sun -- not really a horror film. it is based on true events of a japanese military base/camp that performs horrific tests on the chinese

--Guinea Pig 2: Flower of Flesh and Blood -- supposedly in 1991 the actor Charlie Sheen mistook the second film of the series, Flowers of Flesh and Blood for a snuff film and contacted the FBI to report it. Don't know whether that is true or not. Anyway this "film" if you want to call it that -- just starts with a girl being kidnapped. then she is slowly cut to pieces by a weird chinese viking looking guy. It is very realistic gore -- i can see why someone my think it is a real snuff film.

that is all i can't think of right now -- i will edit if i think of more

geez that does sound disturbing. damn that has me disturbed like hell just thinking about it -- are they filming a pork plant where workers are just torturing pigs or did the film makers just do it for the hell of it. my God.

i hate any kind of animal cruelty in films.

Cannibal Holocaust -- live turtle killed and gutted, muskrat stabbed, monkey decapitated.

Men Behind the Sun -- live cat throw in pit of hungry rats -- that is friggin disturbing and really had nothing to do with the film. it is as if the director said "We are missing some animal cruelty, do this."

The context is never explained, as I recall. We just see one or two people disguised in those Hazmat-type suits carrying large blowtorches (not the welding kind, but the kind whose tank you carry on your back and whose torch spews masses of flames) and scorching the squealing pigs until their skin is bubbling and peeling and they lie on the ground quivering.
It's about as inhuman as anything I have seen, virtually on a par with the soul-shredding video of the Russian soldier being beheaded by Chechen rebels.

A lot of people have already brought up examples for my choice: any movie that contains actual animal abuse/killing. I can deal with most "disturbing" things in non-documentary movies because, despite how real it can seem, it's still just acting and/or special effects. But hurting/killing an animal just to make a movie is horrible, and completely unnecessary.

i completely agree.

with regards to the post earlier:

Some people may say "Get over it -- it is only pigs." I understand we kill pigs for our consumption, however it is/supposed to be done in a quick humane way. Having worked in a turkey processing plant a few years back -- i had to walk through the "kill room" quite a bit -- turkeys were killed in a humane way. Pigs, cows, etc. should be done the same way.

Torturing an animal for pleasure or for a movie is absolutely despicable(sp?)

I usually don't feel too dirty after watching a film, but the one that comes to mind is The Last House on the Left. I blind bought it watched it once and feel a little embarassed to display it on my shelf.

A movie that LITERALLY made me feel dirty was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. It wasn't so much "disturbing" but I felt so grimy after watching it I felt I needed a shower.

August Underground/August Underground's Mordum
Irreversible
I Stand Alone
Kids
Guinea Pig: Flower Flesh and Blood

Other than the August Underground films, I had originally gone through these films knowing little to nothing about them.

Out of all of the films Kids was the only film to genuinely make me upset. My girlfriend had bought the movie when we first started dating and we watched it together. I believe it was about 20 minutes into the movie that I got up and left the room.

Kind of odd that I reacted that way to Kids since I'm a big Exploitation fan. If anything it was part of what sauce07 mentioned as well as the tone and dialogue throughout the 20 minutes of the film I saw. Just upsetting and uncomfortable.

Philosophy of a Knife - 4 hours of torture and cruelty.

Maybe about 1 hour and a half of torture.
2 hours of the interview/documentary footage.
1 hour of "Storyline".

Big exploitation fan here too who can stomach stimulated gore & violence. But I agree that Larry Clark's work always seems to push the "Ewww" button for me.

Haven't seen the movie version, but I read the book a couple of years ago and it really made me uncomfortable. I sometimes see the book stacked in my closet and it's like I'm afraid to even touch it.

The film that comes to mind for me is Andreas Schnaas' Zombie Doom. I lost my appetite for two days after watching that piece of gore crap.

Did we really need to see a man get his spine pulled out through his anus?

EDIT: I agree with Leechboy.

I'll bet it was a Burn research film they used. I saw a film like this years ago and I think it may have been Military Research. I guess with no context it would seem even more cruel than it already is. Anyway, according to science Pig skin is apparently very close to Human skin.

Death Wish 2 - I'm still a big fan of Charles Bronson, but the double-rape scenes in this just make me feel awful. I guess that's the point. I remember reading that director Michael Winner went ape when the studio wanted to trim the scene. Regarding Bronson, he went on to make a lot more movies that make a person feel like shit for just watching.

Sweet Movie.

Dirty, directed by Tessa Hughs-Freeland. It's a short about a woman getting drunk at a bar and getting picked up by a slimy guy. Hughs-Freeland had trouble with the actress, who really got so drunk that she was falling off the barstool. She also made Rat Trap, a short about shooting up heroin. There were no special effects, and no tasteful cut-aways. The guy was dead in a few years. Nymphomania was a rape fantasy that ended with a dead nymph. I rather liked that one, even if the climax made everyone in the theater gasp. If her films were on a DVD, I'd buy it.

Salo arrived today from Netflix. Maybe I can add it to the list.

The Girl Next Door (the Jack Ketchum one)

I've seen most in this thread and it was no big deal, but the above mentioned got to me

I haven't seen the movie, but I've read Ketchum's novel. One of the most disturbing, depressing books I've ever read. After I finished it, I was in a depressed, kind of foul mood for a couple days, especially when I thought about certain scenes in the book (which I will never be able to get out of my mind). I can't see the movie being as graphic as the book, but it looks like it did a good (?) job in capturing the spirit. I'm not sure if I want to even see that one, the book was enough.

Straw Dogs
Texas Chainsaw Massacre (orig) - that finger prick scene

Straw Dogs has the distinction of one of the most intense finales ever, not to mention the very unsettling rape scene. And that whole dinner scene in the original TCM is some of the most frightening material I've seen in a movie, even more so because the finger prick is real.

I watched Poultrygeist last night and that was all sorts of fucked-up and ridiculous and grimy. The last 45 or so minutes rival the final battle in the last Rambo and the climax of Dead Alive in sheer carnage. And you better believe I was laughing my ass off when the Colonel Sanders guy was taking a shit and an egg came out his ass.

In theaters I would say it would have to be David Cronenberg's Crash. My friend and I saw it in one of the local theaters. The theater was about half full and when the movie was over, everyone just sat there quietly. It was the weirdest thing.

There was one thing that disturbed me as a kid. My father had one of those big ugly satellite dishes in the backyard along with a descrambler so we could watch any channel. One day while browsing which was incredibly slow since if you changed satellites the dish had to move positions I stumbled across something about Vietnam. I was young enough that I don't know if it was a movie or a documentary, but there are two scenes I remember to this day which made me change the channel.

The first was a scene where the group hit the deck since there was a patrol within a close distance. The camera man pans over to his hand or one of the soldiers next to them and you see the hand with several wooden spikes through it while everyone is trying to keep quiet. I flipped the channel immediately.

I tried the show again a few minutes later only to see a US soldier wounded, laying in the open, begging for help with the squad a few feet away and every time they try to get him, a sniper shoots him again or hits around him. I gave up on the movie right then. It had that grainy documentary style footage but since I was easily 10-12 it could have been a movie for all I know.

Is the first scene though? I know both scenes were in the same movie and not that far apart since I would have only flipped over to another channel versus changing satellites.

EDIT: I guess I need to rewatch FMJ. Looking it up on IMDB and it came out in 1987 and we moved out of that house in 1990. At the same time I swear I was 10 or so which would have put it back around 1985.

I think movies with lots of sexual violence freaks people out, because there is at the base level, some prurient interest in the scenes. so movies like Straw Dogs, Last House on Left, I Spit, etc.

Straw Dogs creeps me out alot, because Peckpinah really played that angle up really high. Check out the first scene with the girl walking being oogled by everybody including the audience, the scene where the eventual rapists are playing "Peek a Boo" of her in the shower, etc. To some extent, the audience is playing the same game.

Miike needs to be institutionalized.

Did we really need to see a man get his spine pulled out through his anus?

That sounds like a Mortal Kombat finisher. :D

Haven't seen the movie version, but I read the book a couple of years ago and it really made me uncomfortable. I sometimes see the book stacked in my closet and it's like I'm afraid to even touch it.

The film that comes to mind for me is Andreas Schnaas' Zombie Doom. I lost my appetite for two days after watching that piece of gore crap.

Did we really need to see a man get his spine pulled out through his anus?

you can't forget Men Behind the Sun's - compression room scene where the guys insides blow out his ass. The fisting scene in Society. And the various and asundry ass assaults in Poultrygeist

"Hannibal". I hated the end of that movie. Disgusting. Yeah, I'm not a big horror fan. I can tolerate some of the Japanese material and realize "Audition" might be just as gruesome, but that brain stuff in "Hannibal" was just over the top stupid.

Last House on Dead End Street is far worse.

From wiki

Last House on Dead End Street is a 1977 horror film about a disgruntled man, recently released from prison, who takes out his anguish by making snuff films.

Few knew who actually directed the film, until Roger Watkins, who died in March 2007, posted on Internet message boards three decades after it was made saying he was behind it [1]. The film was made in 1973, but wasn't released until four years later.

Watkins has said he was high on amphetamines while making the film. He also said only about $800 was spent making the film, while the remaining $3,000 budgeted was used to buy drugs [2]

The film was virtually unavailable until Barrel Entertainment released a double-disc DVD in 2002. In the 1970s, its release was limited to grindhouse and drive-in theaters. It is also known as "The Cuckoo Clocks from Hell" and "The Fun House. "The version entitled "The Cuckoo Clocks Of Hell" originally ran some 175 minutes in length though the only remaining print of it in that form is thought to be stored in a New York film lab.

Dude spent most of his budget on drugs. This is gotta be good!

For some reason that made me laugh.

I've been meaning to get the UK/R2 DVD for a little while now. Might need to pick it up soon.

Believe it or not, the last movie I felt dirty and ashamed after watching was Christmas with the Kranks. In the worst movies of all time thread, I put it in there on my list. Just the fact that someone out there could enjoy a movie that preached conformity over individuality makes my skin crawl.

just watched msp. very gory, not alot of actual on screen kills, but whats there is really nasty, chainsaw to the head, child murder, a nail to the arm, throat slitting in a tub, rape ect. Sure the acting sucks and the plot is kind of non existant, its enjoyable. The one scene that actually kind of got to me was the scene where the baby walks up to see his dead mother and it was screaming

Did you watch the director's cut? I've read the Lions Gate release is missing 20 minutes of footage.

yeah. i don't think explicit shots of a chainsaw going into a womans head, or a chid being stabbed in the chest would be in the edited version. Alot of it was still off screen, and it was probably all of the blood that scared the mpaa

Ok thanks to Rypro525 (my best new bud) ;) I just finished watching Ken Park or as some would say Krap Nek ;)

Really cool movie. Many well known actors. The highlights are the begining and the end. I was not disturbed by this movie at ALL. I felt Kids was much more disturbing maybe because I was younger when I watched it, just don't know. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it and really glad I got a chance to watch it. BTW the scene with the mom and sean are pretty hot! Yea I know I'm sick!

Next I will watch Irreversible and give my impressions.

Classification Review Board bans Ken Park
HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL - FOR OFLC INTERNAL USE ONLY


CRB-060603j

Transcript of meeting of the Classification Review Board (CRB), 6 June 2003.

Procedural Protocol:
As per usual practice, anonymity of the participants is preserved by the use of code names in place of real names. Real names of participants will be shown in the official CRB report but comments will not be ascribed to any one member.

Present:
A - a member of the CRB
B - a member of the CRB
C - a member of the CRB
P - film projectionist
S - stenographer
L - legal counsel

A: Meeting is hereby re-convened, 1330 hours. Agenda is review of the decision of the Classification Board to refuse classification to the film Ken Park. Only those members of the Review Board here present may vote on this matter. I presume we have all read the written application for review and the supporting written submission from the applicant. We also heard the verbal submission on behalf of the applicant this morning. Now I understand that there are only a few contentious scenes in the film so I suggest we fast forward through the tame bits. All in agreement?

B: No.

C: We're supposed to consider context.

A: The Board found there was insufficient artistic merit in this film. How about we look at the juicy bits first and then consider context if we have time.

B: I'm not comfortable with that.

C: It's a bit unusual, but I suppose we can try it.

A: P, roll please, fast forward.

[film commences]

C: Wait up!

A: What?

C: I saw pink bits there.

A: Couldn't be. There's no pink till minute 54. P, slow rollback please. ..... Stop, hold it there. Was that what you meant C?

C: Yes, but I see now it's only tongue on nipple.

A: How prolonged would that be in realtime, P?

P: 0.83 seconds, with 0.51 seconds of tongue contact.

A: Too brief I think.

B: But it's genital contact!

A: Nipples are genitals? I don't think so.

B: It's erectile tissue. Can we have a ruling please?

A: L, is it genital contact if the nipple is erect?

L: No, the genitals are below the waist.

C: My wife reckons they're connected by a nerve or something.

A: What are?

C: Nipples and genitals.

A: Well maybe, but we have to go by what's in the act.

C: The sex act?

A: No, the Classification Act. Let's move on. Fast roll to minute 54 please P.

C: What about context?

A: It's impact that counts. Roll please.

[film is rolled forward to 54m]

A: Stop! Roll back a few frames. See that everyone?

B: What is that fluid stuff?

C: Surely it couldn't be what I think it is.

A: Roll back then step-frame forward. We need precision here.

B: Semen, I think.

A: Replay please. More slowly this time ..... Freeze there!

B: Definitely semen.

C: Could be spit.

B: But it came from his penis!

C: You don't know that. The pot plant got in the way.

B: Why would he spit there?

C: Maybe he didn't think much of the tennis on the TV.

A: OK, decision on that scene please.

B: Is semen allowed on film?

A: Only in X, and only then in short spurts.

B: So it's an X film then?

A: No, because there's fetish!

B: What fetish?

A: He's got a belt or something tied round his neck.

B: I thought fetish was spanking and rubber.

A: Read the Guidelines, B. A fetish is an object or action that gives sexual gratification.

C: Like bonking?

A: What?

C: Bonking gives sexual gratification. Well mostly anyway.

A: No, it's got to be an object or an action.

C: Bonking is an action.

A: Well OK, but we all know what a fetish is.

B: I thought fetish meant spanking.

A: Not just that. Any sex that's not normal really.

B: Who's to say what's normal?

A: Normal is just plain sex. No funny business with feathers and vibrators and such.

B: Who decided that?

A: We all had a say in writing the Guidelines.

B: I didn't.

A: You must have been away. We were asked by the Minister to decide what the community standards ought reasonably be and that's what we decided.

B: You decided no feathers?

A: We didn't mention feathers. Just no fetish in X films.

B: You mean X films can only have plain sex?

A: Yes, B. You really should read the Guidelines before you come to these meetings.

B: The Guidelines are stupid! Who decides what's a fetish?

A: We do. Look, we're here to review the film, not the Guidelines. Let's move on. Do we agree that scene is the real thing, meaning actual sex?

C: But he's all alone!

A: Doesn't matter, masturbation is sexual activity.

B: But it's not the same as having sex.

A: Read the Guidelines.

C: What do we mean by "actual" in this scene?

A: There's semen so it's actual. If it's actual, it can't be accommodated in R.

C: Could be mayonnaise.

A: Why would he have mayonnaise there?

C: I read somewhere that they use it in porn films.

A: What for?

C: Because if they have to do a retake, and the guy's already ejaculated, they'd normally have to wait till the next day. So they use mayonnaise instead.

A: I don't think it's mayonnaise.

B: Could we ask the director?

A: Look, it's not that important.

B: I thought it was important to decide if it's actual sex or not.

A: OK, I suggest we move on. Maybe we can find some actual sex later in the film. The next sex scene is at 83 minutes. Roll forward please P.

[film is rolled forward to 83m]

A: OK, stop there, that's it. Look, three in the bed.

B: It's oral sex!

A: The girl seems to be fellating the first young man, while the second young man looks like he's penetrating her from the rear.

B: What's fellating?

A: Giving fellatio.

B: No one says that in real life.

A: What do they call it?

B: I call it going down.

A: Surely you don't really do that? Yuk!

B: It's quite normal you know.

A: I think it would be a fetish. The tongue is not a sex organ.

C: Look, now he's going down on her.

A: We have to call that cunnilingus.

B: Sounds so vulgar. If fellate is the verb of fellatio, what's the verb of cunnilingus?

A: We normally say performing cunnilingus. I don't think it has a verb of its own.

B: No one actually says that in real life.

A: Well we have to be clinical and dispassionate in our report.

B: But the scene is so romantic, with the soft light and the music and everything. Why do we have to make it sound like an anatomy lesson?

A: But there's another guy watching them! How can you call that romantic? Stop, I think I saw saliva!

B: What's wrong with saliva?

A: I think it was a saliva trail. Roll back and freeze frame please.

B: Saliva trail? What do you mean.

A: See, it looks like the saliva trail goes from her mouth to the tip of his penis. That means she must have licked him.

B: I thought we had to say fellate.

A: That's right. Anyway, we've got our proof. That constitutes actual sex so it can't be accommodated in R.

B: But we didn't see contact.

A: There must have been contact, there's a saliva trail. What do you think, C?

C: Well it's certainly not mayonnaise this time. I agree it must be saliva. But we didn't see contact.

A: There's implied contact, otherwise there'd be no saliva trail.

B: Do audiences watch it in freeze frame like this?

A: Not in the theatre, but they might if they had it on DVD or video.

C: Why are we getting all hung up on this saliva thing?

A: Because we have to find actual sexual activity, not simulated, so we can prove it can't be classified R.

C: Hey, did you see that? I think he put his finger up her vagina.

A: Well, we've certainly got proof of actual sex now.

C: How so?

A: Digital penetration. How long is that in real time, P?

P: 1.4 seconds.

A: That's prolonged enough.

B: Digital penetration? Sounds like something Senator Alston would say.

A: It means he put his finger in. A finger is a digit.

B: I still don't know why we have to use all these silly terms.

A: The Guidelines require objectivity and precise terminology.

B: The Guidelines suck.

A: I hope you don't say that to any of the public. We have to maintain credibility.

B: Well that sucks too.

A: What does?

B: Our credibility. The public thinks we're a bunch of old fuddy-duddy puritans, sitting here in the dark with our stopwatches and slow motion replays.

A: We can't be influenced by what the public thinks.

B: Well what are community standards then?

A: As defined in the Guidelines.

B: The Guidelines are stupid.

A: Look, we're not here to argue about the Guidelines. We're here to classify the film. Have we found real sex yet, or is it only simulated?

B: There was actual sex in Romance, and that got passed with an R rating.

A: We're not bound by previous decisions. It's not like a court you know. We have to apply the Guidelines as we see them. Have we found real sex yet?

C: Well we've had some mayonnaise, a bit of saliva, some implied oral sex, and a finger up a vagina. But we're on shaky ground as to whether any of that is actual sex.

A: Sheesh, what does it take to convince you lot? Maybe we can find child abuse.

C: Maybe this scene now where the father is trying to get into bed with the son.

B: The father looks drunk. He's being portrayed as a pathetic loser.

A: Doesn't matter. The boy is underage.

B: Under what age?

A: Under 18.

B: I thought child abuse had to be under 16. Age of consent is 16.

A: That's for RC. For X, under 18 is not allowed.

B: But I thought it couldn't be X because of the belt.

A: Technically you are right, but if use the term minor, people won't know the difference.

B: You mean we're going to call it child abuse even though it's not.

A: The boy is his father's child.

B: Yes, but he looks over 16 and he can certainly handle his pathetic father.

A: If we say sex involving minors, we're not lying.

B: But isn't a minor under 18?

A: So?

B: Well for child abuse it has to be under 16.

A: Look, we'll put out a press release, we'll toss in words like child abuse, minors etc. and there'll be enough confusion that no one will dare question it. After all, we're the experts.

B: We'll all look stupid.

A: We have to maintain community standards, B. If we imply child abuse, that will create enough hysteria to silence the critics.

C: I agree we'll look stupid. No other country has banned it.

A: They don't have our community standards. Time for a vote folks.

C: But the film has a strong message about the consequences of parental neglect. Isn't there merit in allowing adults to ponder that?

A: No, we have to apply the Guidelines. It can't be accommodated in R because of the finger and the saliva trail, or in X because of the fetish, so it has to be RC. And we'll further justify it by implying they're under age? Agreed?

B: Oh alright. But I still think the whole system stinks.

C: Sorry, I'm voting for an R rating.

A: Majority decison is for RC. Meeting closed.

B: I'm not happy.

C: Me neither. Why can't we just look at films as a whole, instead of this stupid clinical analysis of scenes out of context? And why do we have to be so obsessed with sex? Most adults have sex, so why do we think they'll be offended by seeing it in a film?

A: They don't expect to see explicit sex in a movie unless it's porn.

B: Who says so? Can't we just provide consumer advice and let them decide?

A: Oh, shutup you two. Meeting is over. Read the Guidelines before the next review.

Dude spent most of his budget on drugs. This is gotta be good!

From an IMDB review:

The gore is rough & extreme in places, there is a scene in a slaughterhouse where a cow is sliced open, someone has a drill put in their eye, there are intestines & blood galore, stabbings, beatings & the real showstopper where a woman is tied to a table & has her face sliced open, her legs sawn off at which point they revive her with smelling salts & then has her stomach carved open & her guts pulled out in a really nasty & gruesome scene that turns into a test of endurance.

Well I've been reading up on Last House on Dead End Street. Now although ppl say there are far more gory or violent movies what get ppl is the grittyness and low budget that make it feel real. It has been hard to fin any good images to post but I did find one that although not gross or anything you can get the picture of what ppl are talking about. Looks like a sure buy just the films history and folklore. It has been said original running time was about 3hrs. Here is a pic

I've got a DVR of this (Just watched it for the first time thanks to the recent horror challenge) Though I didn't mind the movie at all, the above scene is the only notorious sequence of the movie. Everything else is a bit tame (Excluding the scenes involving deer hoves and a submissive wife in blackface--Which delves into a surreal quality)

Yeah got busy yesterday but I will watch it tonight. I don't think the motion will bother me. It didn't in Blair Witch and not a bit in Cloverfield. But we will see. LOL

I need to decide on if I want to order Mordum or August Underground not bad at $20 each for movies that don't have wide distribution but I would hate to buy and hate it. Rypro which one should I get? Your gonna watch it too you might as well help pick it out. :lol:

Wow I would really go kill the black bitch that said to take the underpass cause its safer. Yea right :lol:

Great scene what made it so effective was it was about 9 mins of single shot with the camera placement being on the floor so you feel like your the taping it. Very intense scene, brutal even. Did not make me feel dirty or anything. 30 mins left.

Wow what a great movie thanks Rypro! Once again Vincent Cassel amazes me. For anyone who has posted in this thread and has not seen this, do yourself a favor and check this out. One of the coolest things is at the end (Begining) when the director tries to enduce an epileptic seizure and you see that galaxy thing really cool.

Another note this doesn't feel like your typical revenge flix. Since its memento style its almost as if the filmmaker wants you to see the vengance on its own without the feeling of content one usually feels when the bad guys gets what he deserves and in this film you will find out why. Highly Recommended

I agree. I know we are all sharing our picks for disturbing films but we really should be using spoiler tags. IMO, what made these movies completely disturbing in the first place was that I had no idea what I was expecting. There is only so much you can imagine if someone describes to you a horrific scene. It's that moment you actually see it on film that disturbing scenes sit with you.

Irreversible is notorious for "that" scene but there are a lot of people who will watch the movie not knowing it.

Regardless if reading up on the plot doesn't ruin your enjoyment for a movie is great. Problem is that not everyone feels that way. There are many that like to know as little as possible about a movie before seeing it.

Obviously surprises are always nice.

Asian I got the point as I stated in my last post. I guess I just got caught up in the moment of a really great flick. My apologises. From now on I will limit my opinions to general info. Or use spoiler tags. Can we move on?

Since its memento style its almost as if the filmmaker wants you to see the vengance on its own without the feeling of content one usually feels when the bad guys gets what he deserves and in this film you will find out why.
Larry, I may be misunderstanding you, but, if my hunch is correct, watch the movie again. PLEASE! It radically changes things. Don't worry, I didn't catch it immediately either.

Enough said about that. ;)

All right, since you freaks seem to LIKE this shit...

Do some research on the film Chaos, came out in 05 I think. One really disgusting murder, lotsa racism (there's a biracial girl) and the director got into a public pissing contest with Roger Ebert. Was classic because Ebert can lay a smackdown when he has to.

Ok just got, The Girl Next Door and The Philosophy of a Knife. Will comment on if they were any good or disturbing.

You'll probably be let down by Philosophy of a Knife. The knowledge that this happened to prisoners is much more disturbing than what the director was able to pull off in this film. I loved the lady that ends up looking like the little alien kid from Enemy Mine.

btw has anyone else seen the Necromantik?

Yes, part 1 and part 2. Don't even bother. Part 1 is worthy for a hilarious three-way featuring a guy, girl and a corpse and the chick swishing an eyeball in her mouth, but that's about it. Both films fail at everything else.

Ok just got, The Girl Next Door and The Philosophy of a Knife. Will comment on if they were any good or disturbing.

The Girl Next Door is OK, but nothing special. Like has already been said, the real case it was based on is so much more depressing and horrible that the stuff they added for "shock value" just seemed out of place.

..and Philosophy of a Knife is not even worth the DVD's it's pressed on. So dissapointing. First, if your movie is 4 hrs. and 37 minutes, at least, for me, have the decency to have it end with someone throwing a ring in a volcano. Second, the effects are so childish and "low budget" any impact it could have is thrown out the window. Save for a scene involving a cockroach and a girls va-jay-jay. Plus, the effects are done like the director was trying to shoot a sequel to NIN's "Closer", I hate fast cutting and super close up's.

Again, this is another film that is just terrible. Firstly, it's a direct rip-off of Last House on the Left, which IMO, sucked to begin with. Oh, but Sly Stallone's son is in it, so I guess if that's a reason to see it, there ya go.

The only thing about this disc, and is reason enough to warrant a purchase (at least in my opinion) is a featurette with the director in an actual morgue where he uses the words "EXTREME" alot. Oh yeah, and he does it without a shirt, so he can flex his muscles when he says it. LOL, it looks exactly like the interviews they do in the WWE, backstage.

Wow what a great movie thanks Rypro! Once again Vincent Cassel amazes me

Check out another movie that Vincent Cassel is brilliant in. It's called "Sheitan", probably his best performance. Also, again, if you like "Irreversible" check out Noe's first flick, "I Stand Alone", there's some good stuff in there, stuff I won't spoil here.

Ken Park Recommended

I ordered the DVD of this, because it had a kid eating a chick out on it. Now mind you, I'm not a fan of Larry Clark's to begin with, but I hated this flick. I'm sorry, watching an indian chick get trained by two 16-year old's is pretty funny, but yeah, didn't need to see it. All i really remember was Ziggy was in it, but I laughed when he was yelling at his grandparents and kicking his dog. I mean, seriously, a kid could write that. Oh, but Maeve Quinlan (Rhonda) is really hot here.

I would stick with the first August Underground. Mordum is really over the top and isn't as shocking as the first.

I'm the opposite, if I had to choose one, I'd choose Mordum. Now, all 3 sucked. But Mordum is the best of the trilogy. Also, stay away from Fred Vogel's newest flick "The Redsin Tower" just awful. He tries to prove he's a real filmmaker, but it just doesn't work out. It's pretty funny to see a girl violently raped by thin air, though.

just watched msp. very gory, not alot of actual on screen kills, but whats there is really nasty, chainsaw to the head, child murder, a nail to the arm, throat slitting in a tub, rape ect

Another flick I was REALLY let down. The nudity was very, VERY nice (which from what I'm guessing is what was edited out of the Lion's Gate version, not sure, I only have the DC) but it was so obviously trying to be shocking it just failed. From what they shown, the chainsaw to the head could have worked, but wasn't even as bad as say, the saw to the face in even "Hostel 2". Although, I did love the fact that the girl bled so much by the time she was 4 minutes into being tortured her blood was black. You gotta think she'd die of loss of blood at SOME point.

OK, I think I'm caught up. Or not.

I'm guessing it's perceived as such due to it's depiction of actual sex (not forgetting its use of Autoerotic Asphyxia) but in reality it isn't at all disturbing. If that was the case than Shortbus and 9 songs would be also, when in reality they both just suck. (pun intended)

Fun movie. His character Joseph was hilarious (MARC!!) and utterly disturbing at the same time. It helps that minus the obvious horror movie cliche's, the movie is completely wacked out.

If it's any concession the awful acting/transitions scenes between all the gore in the August Underground films, make the film a little less disturbing :)

There were scenes in WALL-E that were more terrifying than anything in the AU films. "Tumbling Doll of Flesh" was more disturbing, and it's pretty much the same thing, just pre-dated.

Also, if you're a fan of those type of films (and who isn't) give "There's A Secret In My Soup" a shot, again, it's nothing special, more along the lines of say The Untold Story, minus the hilarity of the kids being killed.

I wasn't saying it wasn't stupid, I'm mearly saying that's the whole point. It's mindless entertainment, and if you go in thinking as such you'll have fun. Kinda like Premutos (or any other Olaf Ittenbach film) The effects are supposed to suck, the blood is supposed to look like Gravy and the plot was just left out completely.

Here's one I don't think has been mentioned yet: Nekromantik

Yeah, I mentioned it. I also mentioned how awful it was. Not disturbing awful, just awful. In fact, all 4 films Jorg Buttgereit has directed that I have seen (Nekromantik 1, 2, Schramm and Der Todesking) have been more awful than the one that came before it.

Plus, the guy is just a huge tool. Case in point, his interview with Nacho Cerda on Unearthed's Aftermath/Genesis DVD is hilarious.

Like some here, I don't get shocked or disturbed easily. I've seen most of the stuff mentionned in this thread and while I would qualify some scenes as intense, they did not disturb me in a "gets under your skin" sense. Maybe I've just seen too many of them, but the most important element is lack of realism, even in those pseudo snuff films. They are usually too over the top and try too hard to shock to be effective or disturbing. Not to mention they are usually pretty bad films, in terms of filmmaking.

The only film in the past few years that managed to get under my skin was, well... "In my Skin" by Marina de Van. Because it's a fascinating character study, it's realistic, well acted and has a strong psychological component. Heck I saw this at a cult film festival where audiences are used to being shocked and some people walked out. "I Stand Alone" would fall in the same category.

Caligula was a borefest.. I watched it when I was like 13. Battle Royale just seems really cool!

Is Cannibal the film where..

A man puts out an ad to find someone who wants to be eaten/killed? Involving a scene where he cuts off his own genitals to eat them?

Probably most random question I've put in spoiler tags :)

Yep, that's the one.

Here is one I am surprised no one has mentioned yet....Caligula

Caligula is OK. It's only disturbing if you've never seen hardcore pornography in a "mainstream" flick, other than that, I agree with it being "boring".

Last House on the Left, to me, has always been extremely overrated. Wes Craven, in fact, to me, is the most overrated director I can think of. Ichi, on the other hand is extremely fun, yet not disturbing, due to it's being pretty tongue-in-cheek.

Requiem, again while not disturbing, is a terrific flick. Plus, there's Jennifer Connolly bush.. and Eraserhead, well, the armless, legless baby disturbed me when I was younger.

Guys some other ones I wanna check out.... Let me know if you've seen them...

Battle Royale and Vistior Q.

Visitor Q is hilarious. Another movie featuring Miike's love for breast milk (also Gozu, Blues Harp etc.) Kenichi Endo is terrific as the father. Battle Royale, while a terrific film, isn't disturbing. Unless you think a knife to the nuts is. Just STAY AWAY from the sequel. Wow, just awful. The manga's are actually better than the first film though, it's definitely worth picking a few up.

There are 2 versions of The War Zone.
Make sure you get the uncut version and not the R-rated one.

I still have that on VHS.

The Ray Winstone anal rape scene is tough to watch, and its use of incest is pretty hard to watch, especially when I was younger

Damn, long ass post.

Oh and I will be watching "I Stand Alone" tomorrow night. I hope it lives up to what Irreversible was.

Oh, it's a good film, but not close to the experience Irreversible is.

I'll put this in spoiler, since you haven't seen it yet, but other than the tone and probably the beating of the pregnant girlfriend, there isn't anything that resembles either the 9 minute long rape or the scene that will always be known as "the minute I stopped looking at a fire extinguisher without flinching"

If I had to compare it to any flick, while not nearly as disturbing, but shot kinda the same way is Gary Oldman's awesome "Nil by Mouth".. Oh, and that film has the best and most uses of the word **** EVER.

"I Stand Alone" is a character study of obsession and mental illness. The narration (your hear his thoughts throughout the film) is probably more disturbing than most of what occurs on screen except for a couple of scenes. Philippe Nahon (the serial killer in Haute Tension) is fantastic. The film resembles "Taxi Driver" and "Bad Lieutenant" in tone (very bleak) , and "Clean Shaven" in content. Mike Leigh's "Naked" also comes to mind.

No, not disturbing to me - just pretty gross. Extremely funny movie overall though - even if the effects shots were a little less convincing in a few spots. Can't believe we haven't seen a US release yet.
Evil Aliens has been out in the US for awhile, although it has less extras than other versions.

Agreed. It unfairly gets compared to the AU trilogy (which I can see why) but is in no way boring like those flicks are. Plus, I loves me some oral torture. Um, yeah, that was weird.

While on the subject, "Snuff: A Documentary about Killing on Camera (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/34826/snuff-a-documentary-about-killing-on-film/)" is pretty good. Nothing really special, though.

Michael Haneke once said, "I don't mind people walking out of Funny Games - in fact, that is the healthier response. On the other hand, someone who sits through the whole film would probably be capable in real life of becoming a willing spectator of events like those depicted in the film, or even participating in them."

I've seen most of his work, and yes I enjoyed funny games. But for him to make a statement like that is just stupid. Every movie he makes he judging the audience. Enough already.

I can understand walking out of Funny Games because it's booooooriiinngg! The original was bad enough, you think he'd have the smarts and figure since he's getting a second chance he could take the premise (which could work, see "Them") and do something with it. But no, what does he do? Recreates the same movie SHOT-FOR-SHOT. Uhderrr. As bad as the original was, I'd say the remake sucked even more for the main fact that I went in to it, mainly because I liked the actors (Roth, Watts) and left shaking my head.

I'm guessing people find it disturbing, because "you feel like you're there", but if that's the case, I figure I'm the wrong person for a home invasion, 'cause I'd be bored off my ass.

Is it me? I don't see the appeal of Haneke's work. Maybe somebody has a recommendation that'd make me change my mind? I've seen both Funny Games, Cache and Benny's Video.

I do not know what to recommend because I think those 3 films are great.
If you did not like those, I do not thing there are any that you will like.
All of his films are very slow and require alot of patience (3 of his favorite directors are Bresson, Antonioni & Tarkovsky). His films are not straight up exploitation like alot of the films being mentioned here.
He is more of a European art house director whose films contain some elements of exploitation.
I have yet to be disappointed by Haneke (I have not yet seen Funny Games remake) and I consider him to be one of the best modern filmmakers.

I gotta disagree with you here bud. They are exploitations films. Except with him he exploits the audience.

But, is he doing something that hasn't been done before? I mean, yeah, he's intentionally slowing down the pace and doing the "shocking" breaking of the fourth wall (which was more disturbing in Ferris Bueller, if ya ask me), but I don't know, maybe I just bore easily. I did kinda like Benny's Video. Much better than either of the Funny Games films. Maybe I'll try to watch it again..

As both LickTheABC's and I mentioned, it was brutal/effective (IMO)

It goes off on sort of a weird angle near the end of the film, but everything up until then is pretty bleak. It gets mixed reviews in terms of "plot" and FX, but I felt that both held up very well.

There were many times in that film where the FX on screen just made me cringe (and I don't do that often).

I guess in general, though I like the August Underground films, Snuff 102 was more of what I wanted the AU films to be. I thought AU was very effective because of the FX and the set-pieces used, but the transitions between scenes were too cartoony. Snuff 102's transitions between killings makes sense (in the end) and were a lot less cartoony, having more in common with an "art" film.

I read that when director of Snuff 102, Mariano Peralta screened the film in Argentina, someone in the audience physically attacked him during the viewing :)

I think both films will always be compared to each other, assuming it's audience has seen both. I thought Snuff 102 had the edge though as it holds on to it's bleak mood throughout, while the AU films made me laugh when blood wasn't being spilled throughout.

Yes, another excellent French flick. Not really disturbing but the scene in the bathtub of Marina de Van pulling on her fat flap always just made me laugh.

The first is..

http://www.toxicshock.tv/news/wp-content/uploads/gutterballs_movie_poster2.jpg

Spoilerized so there isn't any more giant pictures weighing down the thread.

Not really disturbing, because it's kind of done with a wink and a nudge, but still.. awesome deaths. A rape scene even longer than Irreversible and done with a bowling pin no-less (the fat end) and the most creative way to kill 2 people engaged in a 69 that I've ever seen.

..and the other is...

http://www.videovista.net/reviews/may06/feed.jpg

Some people might find this disturbing, even though the movie is kinda well, it's directed by the dude who did Man-Thing. Enough said. The guy from Moonlight is in it, though. So there's that.
