The most violent movie ever made?

I would say "Hard Boiled" but alot of it is styalized. Other than that I would say "True Romance" or "The Wild Bunch".

In terms of actual violence these two are mild, but they feel like two of the most violent, to me:

A Clockwork Orange
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Some of Paul Verhoevens films would qualify: Starship Troopers, Total Recall, and especially the uncut version of Robocop.

Good ole Vincent

"The Conqueror Worm" always disturbs me with its outright displays of torture and evil. Not a pleasant or happy film....

Maybe not violent but the "killing" scene in Bully was very disturbing.

So you're saying that:

Predator 2 = Really Good Movie?

I quite enjoy Predator 2 but can't remotely justify anything beyond this equation:

Predator 2 = Movie

Battle Royale was pretty intense, especially the director's cut.

I remember reading a while back that Rambo III was technically the most violent movie at one point (had the greatest number of dead bodies).

In addition, back in '69, The Wild Bunch gained a lot of controversy (and an initial X rating) due to its violence.

Man Bites Dog was more psychologically violent. I'd say Saving Private Ryan was the most physical and visually violent.

Although the body count wasn't high compared to many films, I thought Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer was incredibly violent.

It wasn't sugar coated with music, suspense, etc...

A perfect example is the scene with the hookers in the car.
