Looking for movies that really messes with your head


Can someone help me with this? I've always been a fan of these types of movies and i've always been hoping to find a forum that people can help point me to some other movie I've yet seen. It doesn't necessarily have to be a horror, physiological or any certain genre. It simply needs to really mess with the audience in some way, like a great twist at the end, a surreal setting or a hidden meaning behind the movie and events. Movies that I am talking about are things such as Shutter Island, Eraserhead, Inland Empire, Donnie Darko, Momento, etc.

Basically, give me mind**** movies. Pretty please :3

Brazil (1985)

Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas (1998)

Black Moon (1975)

Twelve Monkeys (1995)


Predestination (2014)

You have to be patient with it, if you aren't a fan of the original.

Jagten the Hunt : As someone who likes kids, this actually left me feeling uncomfortable and scared.

Memories of Murder
The Secret in their Eyes (Original Argentinian movie)
Das letzte Schweigen

And lastly, A Serbian Film if you want to hate humanity.

O Lucky Man! (with Malcolm McDowell), Tales that Witness Madness (with Donald Pleasance, Joan Collins and others), and Black Moon, a French-West German film. After watching them, I can't really say if they are good. I guess they could best be described as interesting.

Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas (1998)
I don't think so. It's trippy, but it hardly messes with your mind. It messes with the characters' minds, but that's the point. I am never confused what's happening at all.
I'm back, and this is my front. I left, but that's my right.
If you understand, does that mean you oversit?

Pi is rather trippy. It isn't the easiest film to follow, but I don't have too much trouble.

If anyone says Inception, that person needs to watch more movies.

Eraserhead is bonkers, but not in a good way.

Orson Welles' The Trial is a bizarre ride, and I dig it. I'm still not entirely sure why Mr. K is on trial, but I have a theory, though most people disregard it because of when the book came out, but I know Welles adapted it for his contemporary time.

One person mentioned Brazil, and I'd like to give it a +1. Awesome, odd movie.

Donnie Darko doesn't make much sense, but I haven't a desire to ever watch it again.

Shane caruth has bewildered storytelling in Primer and Upstream Colour

Also one of the coolest but i still/wont have any concrete ideas for what it was all about

Literally just watch the show Black Mirror. Also I don't watch a lot of mind trip movies so that's really all I got, sorry.

Weird is relative.
Tetsuo: The Iron Man (1989)

This is what I was about to post. But yeah, you can probably look towards Japan for a lot of movies that mess with your head.

Evil Dead Trap is a good one.

The movie that messed with my head the most is probably The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972)

All David Linch's movies
Gone Girl
