Ichi the Killer - During and before the beginning credits I kind of knew this was going to be a weird one.

Silence of the Lambs - I watched it when I was probably 14 or so it had to be a year or two after it came out on VHS.

After hours - I have no absolutely why I watched this it was so weird I couldn't change the channel.

House of 1000 corpses - wasn't really that good it was just a little disturbing

Gory movies don't affect me unless the're also disturbing.

Cannibal Ferox was not only gory but also very disturbing.

Takeshi Miike is one of the most disturbing director ever.
Watch Ichi The Killer, Fudo and Audition (even The happiness of the Katakuris).

Many other japanese directors knows how to get into your stomach.
I think about Oldboy, Evil Dead Trap, Riki-Oh, etc...

Irreversible is a must see if you want to talk about disturbing movies.

Also I would include Larry Clark films (especially Ken Park).

On a lighter way, Neil Labute is good at it

Belgium movie, C'est arrivé près de chez vous (Man bites Dog) is hard to watch from beginning to the end.

Tales of Two Sisters (Ji-Woon Kim, a korean David Lynch) ranks there too.

And I almost forgot the austrian movie that tops them all, Dog Days (by Ulrich Seidl)



For the weird categorie, the're is too many of those to be mentioned (ok I'll just mention any Jan Svankmajer movie).

Nuit et brouillard (Night and Fog) is the definitive answer. It's a documentary about the Holocaust made in 1955 using original footage by the liberators but also by the Nazis. My French History teacher showed it just before the mid-terms and he told the class that if anyone had some studying to do later that day, they should leave the room. The naration is morbid, it's sequence after sequence of cadavers and what hits you the most is the fact that the events took place a mere decade before the film was made.

I don't know about the most of any of those, but one that stands out as a director's lame attempt to reach the top shocking movie is Doom Generation (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112887/).

It's one of the stupidest movies ever made, but it does feature a lot of violence, sex, and many overt attempts to get under the audience's skin. Rose McGowan is all kinds of naked, but even that can't help this horrible piece of crap. Sure, some people think this movie is some genius social commentary, but I think it just sucks. Though, it was funny to see the dude's dick get cut off by gardening shears.

The new Rob Zombie movie actually looks pretty good...

I forget what it's called... like Hell's Rejects or something.

Disturbing..for me prolly The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and any movie where kids get murdered... For some reason it really bothers me (a man of steel when it comes to gore and horror) to see a kid (as in someone younger than 16) get killed in a horror movie.

There are a few that I remember seeing that broke that unwritten movie law.. but the one I remember the most is the cheesiest, most ridiculous horror movie ever.. the 1990 remake of The Blob.. :D If anyone can think of any others, it would really be helpful because I can't stand not being able to remember things.

I watched close to most of "the machinest" syaring Christian Bale. In the movie he plays man with insomnia (something I can identify with) who is probobly about 6'0, and is losing a tonne of weight, down to about 120 lbs. The scariest thing about this movie is that Bale actually lost the weight, talk about dedication to your craft, he looked like a Auschwitz survivor. Check this out!

I found Battle Royale pretty cheesy. Yeah the plot is depraved, and it does make you wonder if you could kill your friends, but what ruined it for me was the psycho guy who went just for the "fun" of it. He was like a villian from a stupid video game.

Requiem For A Dream gutted me, chewed me up and spit me out. I doubt I'll ever see a movie that powerful again. Just thinking about it…man, I got shivers! Ellen Burstyn puts in what I think is one of the greatest performances of our lifetime!

Kathy Bates in Misery was cool as well. Misery has a sub-par plot, but Bates puts the movie over the top. Sometimes I even forgot she was an actress and actually believed she WAS Annie Wilkes!

Recently watched Audition and Man Bites Dog. Both good movies ...and both had their moments when it came to disturbing material.

Man Bites Dog was pretty funny, actually. One of the best parts was when the dude knocked on the old woman's door and asked to interview her. They sit down and he's being very calm and polite ...asks her a question, she begins to answer ...then BOOM! He screams at the top of his lungs into her ear and gives her a heart attack. He then laughingly states that he noticed her heart medication and that it saved him a bullet. Sick stuff ...but still kinda funny.

Recently was able to pick up A Tale of Two Sisters. I'll get around to watching that one sometime soon.

Glad to see another Japanophile on the boards :yo:

Miike is a great director, and I think "Audition" is probably the height of his work(there's a disturbing one, for everyone)

Though you're probably a long way from usurping my spot as the Japanese film authority on these boards, rookie ;)

As far as disturbing\gory...Dario Argento's films are a good place to look as well, particularly his crowning achievement, Suspiria.

You know coming from a Pasolini fan, I found Mamma Roma much more disturbing than Salo. It was also a million times better than that piece of crap.
Any German new wave film has got to be up there, and I mean stuff like the tin drummer or Lina Wertmuller's films.
But based on pure gore and content (that discounts a lot of horror movies who don't take themselves too seriously) I'd say Los Olvidados by Luis Bunuel REALLY STRUCK A NERVE! It condemns youth and everything involved with youth!!
Alejandro Jodorowsky's films, el topo and santa sangra are totally memorable and totally depraved, paved the way for the likes of Miike and Noé.

anyone see Funny games by Michael Haneke? (oh and Larry Clark films suck!)

Oldboy is a korean film, it's not as good as Jan Woo Park's other films. Dog Days is a grittier version of Songs from the second floor, those two films totally hit me in the guts. I can identify more with those films than the visual mess that is Requiem for a Dream.

I didn't find it gory/weird or distrubing, I thought it was funny as hell, especially when he's in the park pushing the zombie baby around in the baby carriage.

I don't go for horror/gory films because I find them humorous and that pisses people in the theatre off.

The most mentally f'd up I ever got was a double feature of "A Clockwork Orange" and "The Who's 'Tommy'" (Ken Russell is a weird director). I rented them both one day and was mentally screwed up for a week.

Another one that was disturbing for me was "American Psycho". That was one weird-ass movie.

Someone's already mentioned Irreversible, I see.

In that case, I'll go with Dancer in The Dark. Bjork's performance is brilliant. The way the film goes from light and heartwarming at the beginning and slowly spirals into an darker and darker film is very effective. It's not gory, but watching the way Bjork's character is exploited and manipulated to the point where the film ends (don't want to give it away) left me feeling sick. That final scene didn't help either... On the second viewing, I couldn't even bare watching it.

Heh... I just browsed through the whole thread to see if this one was mentioned. "Requiem For A Dream" pretty much looks like Sunday tea and cakes in comparison to this film. Actually pretty much every miserable moment and depressing thought I've ever had combined didn't compare to the utter hopelessness of "Dancer In The Dark." That isn't to say it wasn't an accomplished film, because in it's own right, it was. However, I can honestly say that I could not and would not want to ever watch this movie again.

"Requiem For A Dream" was in a similar vein (har har) but there were times in that movie that I actually laughed a little bit. "Deer Hunter" is also in the same boat, but again, not as bleak. Out of all three, though, I would probably have to say the latter was the best actual film, in my opinion.

Gore doesn't really do anything for me either way, so nothing in that genre is going to weird me out at all. Most of Kubrick's work leaves me feeling a bit off. As does Lynch but not as much - sometimes I think he just throws weird **** against the wall and hopes some of it sticks, it feels purposeless sometimes or, at least, pretentious just for the sake of being pretentious.

I remember not being able to go to sleep after the first time I saw "The Exorcist" when I was a kid. It still kinda gives me the creeps. "Jacob's Ladder" was (and still is, really) another one that always kind of weirded me out. I think much of that has to do with the subject matter, though. Although a lot of the imagery is eerie and a bit surreal.

09-19-2005, 02:02 PM
Requiem for a Dream isn't really disturbing at all. It just shows the real consequences of being a drug addict. The only part that was a little disturbing was Jared Leto's infected arm.

"God Told Me To" is a pretty good Cohen flick from the 70's. A little disturbing.

I always thought Rosemarys Baby was a little weird when I was little, but it is really just the way Polanski directs it.

8MM was pretty weird, just because that subject was kind of unexplored in film.

Donnie Darko is weird. Not disturbing though.

I was in my OAC year of high-school when American History X came out, and they wouldn't show it in my media English class because of the curbie scene.

Funny Girl is pretty disturbing...........no really, it is. I'm scared of that movie.

Blade: Trinity made me want to fly to Hollywood so I could burn the town to the ground. Very disturbing how bad and hacked together it was.

YESSS!!! What an awful disappointment from the first two. It was a video game/music video with a lame plot thrown in. As PE said, "Burn, Hollywood, Burn!"

**** Hollywood, man!

I've seen Blue Velvet on this list. That is my all-time favorite movie. I guess that makes me somewhat of a freak. Shhh, don't tell my wife.

Jeepers Creepers is also a little disturbing. Not disturbing in content, just the fact that this movie managed to get its script sold, developed, filmed, and eventually produced into a feature film is enough to send chills down my spine. The fact that a sequel was made still makes it hard for me to sleep at night.

Blue Velvet kind of sucks.

Not that I'm one to agree with critics but when a film is hailed as one of the best of the 80's, I'd be hard pressed to believe that it "kinda sucks". Maybe you missed the point or failed to see the metaphors and missed the dark, black comedy.

I didn't like "Seven" but SO many people that I respect love it so I just choose to say that it wasn't for me rather than saying it sucked.


The New York Times Janet Maslin
As fascinating as it is freakish. It confirms Mr. Lynch's stature as an innovator, a superb technician, and someone best not encountered in a dak alley. [19 September 1986]


Los Angeles Times Sheila Benson
The most brilliantly disturbing film ever to have its roots in small-town American life. [19 September 1986, Calendar, p.6-1]

Chicago Tribune Gene Siskel
One powerful, mesmerizing thriller, a masterful exercise in controlling an audience's attention. [19 September 1986]

Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman
No one in the last 20 years has made a movie greater than David Lynch's Blue Velvet.

ReelViews James Berardinelli
Blue Velvet is David Lynch in peak form, and represents (to date) his most accomplished motion picture. It is a work of fascinating scope and power that rivals any of the most subversive films to reach the screens during the '80s.

What is Blue Velvet about?

What is Blue Velvet about?

It's about evil, it's about how violence can be contagious, it's about how looks can be decieving, it's about ears and it's about beers. It is not for everyone. There are violent scenes including violence toward women. But it is also a widly hilarious black comedy. It is Dennis Hopper's best performance.

You will never hear "In Dreams" by Roy Orbison quite the same way again.

Now it's dark.

You're like me!

Loved the original. HATED the sequels. If you dig The Matrix (unlike Chilly Willy) check out Bound (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115736/), their first film. Knowing that they made Bound was the only reason I took a chance on The Matrix.

It's believed that Dennis Hopper's best supporting actor Oscar award for "Hoosiers" was really acknowledging his work in "Blue Velvet," which was considered too controversial.

When you think of it, just about anything David Lynch has ever done could be considered "disturbing," at least in some way. Even "The Elephant Man" and definitely "Eraserhead" would qualify.

On a lesser scale, "Cabin Fever," has to rate on some level. Coincidentally, David Lynch was thanked in the credits, and Angelo Bandelomenti (sp.?) scored the flick.

The scene with the hottie shaving her legs in the bath tub, when the skins peels off from the virus, was too hard to watch a 2nd time. It does include occasional instances of dark humor, but it's not of David Lynch-caliber.
