Way OT: Most disturbing movie you have ever watched?

Submitted by Tampa 2 on February 1st, 2018 at 12:28 PM
So this is way OT, but it is waaay too slow today and I am curious what fellow Mgobloggers have to say about this. I watched the killing of a Sacred Deer and it really got me thinking about stuff. The scene with Kidman in the car with the anesthesiologist really was bizzare, but the overall show was just crazy. The most disturbing movie ever though was Tusk, i can't even explain how i felt after that. Do not watch Tusk! Mods if this is inappropriate please delete, but i feel like we all need something to discuss. So friends, what is the most disturbing movie you ever watched?

I watched that for the first time last summer. It hasn't aged well. I wasn't disturbed by the movie. I was more depressed at how bad it was. I thought it being an award-winning film it would be, you know, good? Instead, we get an hour-long, Eastern European themed wedding in Pennsylvania steel country, followed by a guy becoming a world famous Russian Roulette player. That's not a career where you are likely to make a name for yourself. It just seemed so stupid to me.

A Serbian Film should be in a category by itself. Disturbing isn't the right word. That movie I believe can still be seen on YouTube.

Daniel and Ana is disturbing. At one time it was on Netflix. A guy and his sister were kidnapped and forced to fuck on camera.

I believe Emanuelle in America is the movie where they had some realistic looking snuff scenes. Near the end, a chick's nipple was cut off and I swear it looked real when you consider the technology of that time. I'm pretty sure I fast forwarded through a donkey show also.

unless you want to lose part of your humanity.  A Serbian Film is hors categorie.

When it comes to disturbing films, I prefer those that make me consider my own choices and my own life and my own philosophy for days to come.  Not infant . . ., no I'm not going there.

Where it comes to morally disturbing films, I thought both

  • Requiem for a Dream
  • Ex Machina

were both effective.  Disturbing at times, but for a very good cause.

I'll add to this that I once saw a Queen Latifah nude scene. You wouldn't think it would be that bad but it was almost like she gained weight for the role. When it happened, I asked my wife who the hell that was. She said "It's Queen Latifah". That scene added nothing to the movie other than to imprint itself on my brain.

This is the correct answer.  I challenge anyone to watch it and not be depressed for about a week.  The book was very good, however, its one of the rare cases where the movie is better.  A Clockwork Orange is on my list as well . ..

I actually thought Human Centipede was fairly mild. The scene where the kid is shitting into the girl's mouth and the doctor says "Yes, feed her!!!" actually made me laugh. I mean that was side splitting funny to me. And then with the sequels they lost all creativity and just said "how many people can we have shitting in each other's mouths?" and somehow thought that would make it more disgusting.
