A Serbian Film. ****ed me up for weeks.

Other contenders:

Men Behind The Sun
Guinea Pig (But it wasn't a good movie)
Cannibal Holocaust

Has anyone watched Feed Me (by the same director of Hosts), and The Profane Exhibit (it's an anthology)?
I have seen The Profane Exhibit. I didn't find it very disturbing.

I don't think anything has and I have seen 95%+ films in this thread. I'm used to this stuff by now.

What's most disturbing about that movie isn't even the premise, it's the genre. Who on earth could possibly get turned on by something like this?

It's one of those films I feel 100% sure I will never watch.

If you had to choose a top 3 of the most unsettling films you've ever seen, which ones would those be then?



If you EVER see this movie - be prepared for wierdness and horror. It was not intended as a horror film but had the same affect on me by the end.

It's basically a retelling of fact - I can't remember the name exactly but it's called "Sisters" or something, and they made it look all sexy in the video store. Old flick, made in the 80s or something. British, I do believe.

Basically, it's the late 1800s or some such, early 1900s. Turn of the century. Two sisters, very poor, must work and give all their money to care for their mother. The premise is class structure - how dehumanized and tortured the working/lower classes were by the upper classes. You see this basically affect the two young women. The video made it sexy because they were trying sell it I guess - the sisters are incestual at one point, but it's not even a focus of the movie.

The end is very intense and f*cking freaked my mind. I don't even want to tell you, it was just - so unexpected, and so WRONG, and so real and so scary and ... the terrible thing is, the entire story is TRUE.
Anyone know what film this was?

Maybe I'm a little sensitive, but I'd say either The Exorcism Of Emily Rose or The Human Centipede.



The Human Centipede.

If found this one to be offensive, but that's another thread...

In what sense? To a sane human sensibilities, or?..

Personally, I picked a bad time to watch [b]The Human Centipede[/i], and I have mixed feelings as to whether that sort of thing is vaguely pornographic, but I wouldn’t use the word “offended” to describe those.

Different strokes (especially when it comes to pornography).


The very premise is offensive (IMO) to the point that unless you're watching it on a lark, in which case I suppose it might be dark scatological humor (hmm, "dark scat" is probably poor word choice...). If, however, the film as taken as it appears to be literally intentioned (the body horror of sewing lips to anuses), then it's just too much for my delicate tastes.



I don't actually wear pants.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The trailer for that movie (even though it was budget-as) was pretty freaky as well!


What's more disturbing is the true story of the guy (Ed Gein or something like that) that the movie was based on. Even though it was radically different to what the movie was like (there was no chainsaw what so ever involved, and it was only one guy who, not three).
It's not really based on Ed Gein beyond the grave robbing, which is barely done in the film. Tobe Hooper got the idea when he saw a bunch of chainsaws in a hardware store and then had to wait in a huge line to check out, and he wondered what'd happen if he cut everyone down with a chain saw. The thing with Ed Gein is the cannibalism and the weird stuff to do with human skin. Please don't think this disparages it in any way, since it's my second favorite horror film. I just wanted to clarify.

For me, the most disturbing I've seen is probably Ichi the Killer. I can't watch it again. It's not necessarily bad, but it's too bonkers even for me.

Eraserhead, American Beauty, Silence of the Lambs (speaking of Ed Gein...), Schindler's List, Lighthouse, and Clockwork Orange are pretty disturbing. I try to avoid the ultra disturbing because my psyche is already weak, and the abundance of odd can get to me. I have been tempted to watch Lighthouse again, though, but I can never watch the others I just listed again.

-The exorcist
And On lesser note, insidious chapter 1 was very disturbing tbh




Yep, that struck a note. That was the last gasp good old fashioned fire and brimstone theology. God is taken very seriously and so is the Devil. It's not cute, postmodern, multi-cultural, metaphorical, or in any other way beating around the bush. It's a direct assault on rational sensibilities that simply proceeds by acting as if everything that used to be preached in sermons was true. And it was terrifying.



I would say we need more films that are straight-ahead like this, but I don't think you could pull it off today.


Anthropologically, the most interesting follow-up is Frailty. Decades have now past and
WARNING: "Forbidden Fruit of Spolers Within" spoilers below
God is now simply featured as The Devil -- i.e., "Wouldn't it be awful if God existed as Christians claim he exists"? A bugbear story for atheists who, including the film's writer/director, kind of miss the point that according the worldview of the film, God is simply handing out divine retribution.

I would say we need more films that are straight-ahead like this, but I don't think you could pull it off today. Too many people would get offended. Hell, there are people who argue (with considerable palpitation) that "God's Not Dead" is a "hate film," so just imagine the howl of protest that would follow today with a serious theological horror film which did not n.[/spoilers]
The brilliant thing about the exorcist is the constant dread feeling that it makes you feel that this is really happening right now in front of u and.it s not just a film...brilliamr cinematography and overall atmosphere

Yep, and no found footage gimmicks either. Just straight ahead, dead serious, thing under your bed is gonna get ya.



The use of Oldfield's Tubular Bells was inspired -- gives it a kind of music box quality while also being austere and icey -- avoiding the bathos of a full orchestra.



I've edited a post and removed a few others.

I'm pretty sure this went without saying but just so there's zero deniability: if some argument flares up and causes a thread to be closed, you can't just drag it into another thread. And if someone does do that, tell a mod, rather than taking the bait and continuing it.

The next time either of these things happens it's not going to be edits or deletions, but bans (temporary or otherwise, depending on specifics).
