Kevin Bacon's package in Wild Things. Truly horrifying.

Truely sexy

Besides if that brief glimpse of his Bacon is that 'disturbing',then you really need help!


All the most disturbing stuff I have seen has already been mentioned.

Can't think of any recent films I have seen that had scenes that disturbed me.

Actually I have refreshed my memory with what was mentioned on this thread.

I wish I would have seen Irreversible in theaters. While I did like the film & found it pretty unsettling. I handled the 'head bashing' sequence easily,since I was detached at this moment trying to figure out what the hell is going on & why? If I had let the sonics & visuals entrance & pull me in & I went along with it. I may have found it deeply troubling,unexpected & highly disturbing. Yet not watching it that way,had a lesser affect on myself. The rape sequence I would agree was harrowing,but not that disturbing in 'oh my god,I never want to see this film again' reaction. It was unpleasent,but nowhere near the 'worst' rape portrayal ever shown onscreen. Last House on the Lefts torture/sadism/rape sequence is more disturbing,same thing with the entire rape in I Spit on Your Grave,or the uncut Death Wish 2 among others.


Though I saw one film not mentioned on here,that did make me cringe in some places.

The remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,when blondy gets his leg sawed off onscreen in gruesome detail(including aftermath) was painful to view,yet it gets more unbearably ouch inducing when it shows him being dragged down the basement & his fingernails peel off on the wall onscreen(OUCH!!!). The meat hook portion was sadly not too horrifying based on over editing,but the nails portion really made me cringe. Though seeing him get tortured after being hooked was painful & disturbing as well.

Agreed. Also the part in Saving Private Ryan with that knife stabbing scene. Makes me wince every time.

I agree. Everytime I see that movie, I just imagine what her body looked like, and I get a strange feeling in my stomach.

<shudder> . . . I had forgotten about that . . .

To add a new one, I was watching Black Hawk Down last night and had forgotten about the scene where:
Spoiler:
they have to dig in the guys leg wound to try to pull out the femoral artery that retracted up into his pelvis.
<shudder> again . . .

I can't watch that scene anymore. Not b/c it's gruesome or anything, just get pissed off at Upham!

Now that it's out and I have seen it, I'd say that the scourging scene in The Passion Of The Christ should probably be thrown on this list, too.

I'd have to say The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the old and new, are the most disturbing and horrifying movies I have ever watched. I find the old one a little bit more macabre but the new one does have a bit more pain in it. I mean seriously, a guy is standing in front of a big metal door when all of a sudden it's ripped back and this huge guy wearing dead flesh sewn onto his body with a chainsaw comes out and starts to chase him through the houses front yard with clothelines with white clothes on them which is slowing him down and he cant see behind him and he's gaining on him and he finally catches up and saws his leg off and hoists him up on his back, carries him back as he's screaming, drags him back through the metal door and as the guy tries desperately to grab on to the walls his fingernails are ripped off he then is dropped on a meat hook, has this salt looking stuff slammed into his bloody nub, and then screams his head off with no one to hear him as he is slowly skinned alive. hmmmm..... and the dinner scene in the old one is pretty psychologically disturbing. and the fact that it was based off a true story doesn't help either. it just makes it more difficult to say "its just a movie its just a movie" very disturbing.

Irreversible is still hands down the most disturbing movie I've ever seen.

I have no idea what people think is so messed up about Audition or any of Miike's films. Unless you are disturbed by pure boredom?

It's hard to explain, but I'll try.

Spoiler:

Basically, I guess some people find scenes where dismembered people in bags being fed vomit followed by acupuncture needles being inserted into a fellow human's stomach and pressed into/sat on followed by a couple in the eyes and finally having their feet sawed off with piano wire to be a little disturbing.

There's also those people who are disturbed by musicals.

Occasionally, people are disturbed by seeing a man jerk off to a woman being raped and mutilated, and having the outcome of that jerk off session be the title card for the movie.

And yet there are others that are disturbed by seeing woman breast feed her 20 year old son followed promptly by a man have graphic sex (is there any other kind?) with a corpse only to get mr. happy lodged in there.

Me? not so much, though the vomit was a bit disgusting.


For the most part though, his movies are pretty clean.. I don't really find em boring myself though.

Yes I have seen Audition. It was very disappointing. But anyway, from the examples given, I guess some sheltered individuals might find the things referenced from takashi miike's films disturbing.
