I'll start off with (in no particular order)

Man Bites Dog
Blue Velvet
Clockwork Orange
Event Horizon
Natural Born Killers
Requiem for a Dream

I found all of those to be pretty disturbing in some manner.

What about yuo?

"Armageddon"
"Pearl Harbor"
"Star Wars: Episode I: The Crap Factory: Lots of Colons"

...or anything awful and long and boring that made over $200 million domestically. It disturbs me that people actually want to watch any of that dreck.

A great film is never disturbing, regardless of the subject matter. They can be sobering, thoughtprovoking, provocative, or unforgettable...but seeing any good film worth its salt should only uplift you.

Whatever - Worst movie I've ever seen. The tickets were free but I still felt ripped off, the movie made me queezy, and earlier in the day I had spilled Raspberry Snapple on myself and not been able to get it completely clean. To top it off I got lost going home. I fucking hate that movie.

as soon as i saw this thread title "Event Horizon" was the first thing that came to my mind..

most people i mention it to never heard of it... was surprised to see it on your list

definitely the most disturbing film i have ever seen.

i thought i'd have a really original answer with "requiem for a dream". but it seems other people have actually seen this movie as well and were thoroughly shaken by it, like i was.

I'm sure you've never heard of it but in high-school, our french teacher made use watch "Libera Me"... it made me feel sick. There were only sounds, no lines and the whole atmosphere was so disturbing (people eating, graves being closed etc)...

irma
Nov 20th, 2002, 11:35 AM
o yeah how could I forget far and away.

the ending was very good and sad because tom cruise died and then he opened his eyes again. very disturbing, it ruined the whole movie

independence day was indeed disturbing too, because right when you were think yipee will smith is lost in space, he was there again;)

Requiem for a Dream was the first movie I thought of when I saw this thread. Guess I wasn't alone, LOL.

I'm going to talk about the movie now. If you've never seen but want to, don't read the next paragraph.

About that movie. It is crushingly depressing. It does a really good job of showing how drug addiction just kinda happens before you know it and how hard it is to stop a downward spiral. And also a good job of showing the consequences of drug abuse, although there it kinda overplays its hand I think. I mean, if you experiment with hard drugs, you're not necessarily going to have your arm amputated, or be thrown in jail, or be forced to work as a prostitute for a fix, or go buck-nutty and live in a hospital for the rest of your life. But you know, they were making a point, so I understand. Anyway, great fim. I'd recommend it to anyone.

Stop talking about bad movies you hated, you stupid people. This thread is for DISTURBING movies, as in, disturbing = thought-provoking. You know, something you liked.

o yeah include the witches for the ending

it's a shame to ruin one of my favourite childrenbooks:(

you can also claim that I didn't see much of it. the idea that it really happened, is just to much.

My paycheck for "Faces of Death" was a lot more disturbing than the content of the "movie."

Agreed Poe, although I made my list in random order, if I had taken the time to rank them 'Event Horizon' would definietly have been top.

One film I neglected to add to my list

Trainspotting

Not quite as disturbing as Requiem, but still some unpleasant scenes, as well as some funny ones (the stuggle with the blanket full of shit, for example) on a side note, I did have a hard time following the dialogue because of the accents. It would have been better with subtitles.

The Crow
Nov 20th, 2002, 12:54 PM
Naked
Bittermoon

Accidently (or should I say evidently ;-)), also two of my fav movies.

Big Fat Pink Elephant
Nov 20th, 2002, 12:55 PM
there is a sweish movie called "naken" (naked) and it's gross and boring...... but i guess you don't mean that one, joris?

I agree. I had a difficult time with the accents as well. The point got across though..the baby scene was awful..

Apocolypse Now
Requiem For A Dream
Clockwork Orange
Eraserhead (freaky weird)
Pink Floyd the Wall (particularly the eyebrow scene or the children in the meat grinder)

All I can think of for now..

Yeah, Mike Leigh. Fantastic film.

Didn't find it disturbing, except for the striking physical similiarity between Tom Green and David Thewlis, who plays the main character Johnny.

Yeah, the part were the baby dies and later when Renton is 'cold turkey' and he sees him crawling across the ceiling towards him.
And the part where he dives into the toilet to retrieve his suppository!

The opinion is mixed. Extremely mixed.

The screening in Cannes left one half of the critics crying, the other half booing.

Forgiven... :-) I think it's on Channel 4 this week? I'm SURE it's on Channel 4 this week... maybe it was on last week, and you're forgiven even more... ;-)

My friend saw it and didn't care for it... now I'm really intrigued!! I'll tell you what I think of it when I see it, Girlfriend!! *waving*

Yeah and one more "Black Eagle" when some Ninja guy killed Jean Claude Van Damme, what a shame. However that was a old one before Van Damme became a star.

Talking of diturbing Britflicks:

Peter Greenaway's 'The cook, the thief, his wife and her lover'....

...in which the wife persuades the cook to roast her lover who is then fed to the thief (her husband, who had the lover murdered).

Wow, Hamster. http://www.jordysworld.de/emoticons/augen04.gif I saw the title of the thread and immediately thought of that movie. I was slowly going through the thread, thinking of what I was going to say, and there it was in the last post.

Definitely Once Were Worriors. It left a huge knot in my stomach that wouldn't go away for days. I will never forget the way her face looked after her husband beat her up mercilessly, or the story of her daughter.

Somehow the violence towards women is the most disturbing to me. That's why another film that was very disturbing was Portrait of a Lady, even though the violence there was mental rather than physical.

Trainspotting for the brutality and bleakness of its images.

in a nutshell, it's about a crew on a spaceship that has a funky engine that's also a portal to hell, this is conveyed by images of crew members mutilating and butt fucking themselves occasionally flashing on the screen. it's disturbing shit.

Does anyone know the movie 'invasion of the body snatchers' with Donald Sutherland ? The end is the most disturbing I have ever seen.

I found Blair Witch Project quite disturbing as well (I watched it alone and at night).

Also 12 Monkeys was somehow disturbing - at least very thought-provoking.

Nov 20th, 2002, 09:29 PM
I am surprised no one have sad anything about the ending of Hannibal,

Personally, I thought some people may find it disturbing but to me it is not the most disturbing coz of the fact that Hannibal can cut out the skull and the fact that the it is against all the laws of anti gravitational rules in physics, but I thought it was pretty grim the way they portray the ending

The ending of 'The Fly' with Jeff Goldblum is disturbing too.

Faces of death! So disturbing! I mean.. I loved it.. but it's really disturbing for weak hearts.. and it's quite an experience

Also, Silence of the lambs, and IT! "Hello Clarice..." :D :D :D Sooo sinister!!!! :D
