I saw the other thread about worst film and that's kind of subjective, more interesting to me anyway is one that most disturbed you.

I don't even know the title of mine. It was on tv and I got into it right after the start. I only watched about 15 minutes of it before I just had to turn it off. It still gives me the shivers. It was about a soldier in WW1 that had been hit by an artillery shell. He lost his face, arms, and legs. So in essence he was nothing but a torso and head and even that was paralysed. But his mind is still alive. I joined when the doctor was telling the nurse that if he thought in anyway there was a possibility that this soldier was still capable of conscious thought or if they knew who he was he would administer the morphine himself. But since he was sure he wasn't this was just an interesting experiment. It took a little bit but I had to turn it off when the soldier finally realizes what has happened to him and he's trapped in his own mind with just a few sensory inputs like the sun on his skin. I had a nightmare about the movie that night and have had several since. That would truly be a fate worse than death.

The most disturbing film I haven't seen is 'The Ring' - my other half keeps telling me we should wait for a typically rainy Sunday afternoon, crash on the sofa and watch it on DVD.

We've had plenty of rainy afternoons but have yet to watch it and apparently it's really scary?

The Hills Have Eyes was pretty fucked up in my opinion. A father is burned alive, the mother shot in the head, a teen girl is raped, and a baby is kidnapped....all in a matter of like 10 minutes while the rest of the family watches. Oh and dont forget the family dog is eaten alive.

I know it was a total Hollywood movie, but it still bothered me. The only other movie that really bothered me was United 93. Some how, some way, the movie just seemed so realistic. Being so, it really got to me.

One of the most disturbing movies I have seen is one made in 1983, during the Cold War.

The movie, "The Day After", was shown on ABC-TV in 1983, when relations between the US and USSR were strained (understatement, I know); that was the year the Soviets shot down the Korean 747 and Reagan responded with his "Evil Empire" speech, and this was 2 years before the more moderate Soviet leader Gorbachev came to power.

The movie "The Day After" takes place in Kansas City, and the surrounding small towns (especially Lawrence, KS, where it was filmed) and the farms around it. There were also a lot of ICBM silos in that area. The movie starts out innocently, with its background music being an old Southern hymn and vignettes of farm life and city scenes.

All too soon, in the story, World War III starts in Europe as the Soviets begin their push into western Europe. Scattered news reports describe "MiG-25 Foxbats intruding in German airspace" and "action in the Fulda Gap" and explosions of tactical nuclear weapons on the front. Nuclear war suddenly appears all too imminent, and the Kansas population panics--as the ICBMs begin launching from their solos amidst the Kansas farms!

Emergency news broadcasts begin on TV and radio--with that ominous "BUZZ" sound we all remember hearing from the EBS (Emergency Broadcast System)!
EMP wipes out all electricity and power, just before the first Soviet warheads explode over Kansas City.

The middle of the movie is the most graphic, harrowing part of the movie--bright, blinding flashes followed by people vaporising as their bones flash like neon tubes. Nuclear explosions galore, incinerating buildings, flying debris, etc--all in graphic detail.

Perhaps most harrowing is the aftermath (hence the movie's title, "The Day After") of this nuclear war. Society has disintegrated, America is a third-world/stone-age landscape (no technology or basic medical care), food is scare (due to radiation wiping everything out, including farms), etc. People are so hungry and thirsty that they eat a candy bar whole--including its wrapper! People fight over water, and shoot people who intrude upon their homes. In a roofless, wrecked church, a pastor loudly questions his faith to a ragged congregation.

This movie was a controversial movie in its day, and even to this day, is a sobering reminder of what could have happened (and STILL could happen). It's a chilling reminder of the danger of nuclear weapons.

I remember that one vividly....there was a major freak-out factor after that.

Speaking of TV movies, "The Burning Bed" was another one that had a major effect like few other TV movies have--I think that really opened a lot of people's eyes to domestic abuse. Don't know how disturbing it was necessarily, but certainly influential.

I thought "Hostel" was pretty damned disturbing.

Most Disturbing Film You've Ever Seen

Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma

Set in the Nazi-controlled, northern Italian state of Salo in 1944, four dignitaries round up sixteen perfect specimens of youth and take them together with guards, servants and studs to a palace near Marzabotto. In addition, there are four middle-aged women: three of whom recount arousing stories whilst the fourth accompanies on the piano. The story is largely taken up with their recounting the stories of Dante and De Sade: the Circle of Manias, the Circle of Shit and the Circle of Blood. Following this, the youths are executed whilst each libertine takes his turn as voyeur.

I guess "The Shining" would be another. It's the only Stephen King book made into a movie that made the jump successfully if you ask me. When Shelley Duvalls character slices Jack Nicholsons fingers with the knife, or when Jack Nichloson steps out from behind the pillars with the ax, those are some "oh shit" moments!

Yes, I believe that is the sound! I still remember that sound vividly to this day. I used to hear it often on my local radio station (WBCL, Fort Wayne, IN) as a child. Even though I have not heard it for many years now, I can still remember it so vividly--as vividly as I can remember the "taste" of the anaesthetic gases such as Halothane that I was put to sleep with so often as a child! Both the old EBS "buzz" sound and the anaesthetic taste are two sensations that will stay with me FOREVER.

I would not know how to "write" how the sound sounds (hence I had to make do with "BUZZ"), because there is no comparable onomatopaeic word for it.

Nowadays we have a new EBS sound that REALLY grates on your nerves--almost like scratching on a chalkboard. It's also hard to describe the new EBS signal, but it's loud and grating! Why did they replace the old EBS "buzz" with this new weird sound??

I thought "Seven" was really disturbing. Yeah, Brad Pitt is in it, but that's not the MOST disturbing thing. It's a really twisted movie about some guy who kills people based on the seven deadly sins, and the detective who is going after him. The ending is really f-ed up.

I have to throw my vote in for Requiem For a Dream. While it is an excellent movie and the cinematography is great, the ending presents such an f***ed up outcome to four lives that it boggles the mind that anyone's life could get that far in the hole. Its a movie that will really make you think about certain aspects of life, at least I did.

Anyone here who has seen Die Bruecke/The Bridge? It's a low budget movie from the 60s with a very long fuse but eventually, after an hour or so, the bomb gets off. It's a movie telling the story of a group of teenagers who are drafted into the Wehrmacht in early 1945 to defend a bridge against approaching Sherman tanks.

Then there was Koyaanisqatsi and a documentation on nuclear tests in the 60s, but both couldn't beat Die Bruecke, probably because I still went to school when I saw the film.

There comes a point in movies that are supposed to be horrifying, like The Hills Have Eyes, Saw etc, that they go too far and become totally unbelievable so you start to think it is just Hollywood trying to scare you and therefore the films are not that disturbing. However, when you view a horror film that can be construed to be more realistic, like The Exorcism of Emily Rose or even the original Poltergeist, they can be more disturbing.

My vote for most disturbing film would go to a film I saw where some weirdos carried out their sexual perversions at a secret party. I think it was called 'Society' but I am unsure since this film does not come up in any searches - perhaps it has been banned. The similar party that Tom Cruise attended in Stanley Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut" was like Disney's Cinderalla's Ball compared to what was shown in Society.

Both of those movies show evil prevailing. Very disturbing.

Brilliant film - very scary - Edge of the seat stuff !

Do you guys remember a film about a group of business men who go on a fishing/canoeing holiday and get terrorised by a bunch of hill Billy's hell bent on killing etc - one of the Business guys gets raped by one of the gang hunting them down and revenge ensues....Cannot remember the name of it but it WAS disturbing !

I guess Stanely Kuberick was more of the horror master than I had previously thought. Two mentions here, a clockwork orange and eyes wide shut.

If you really think about it, Kubrick's got a good batch of disturbing movies - the two you mentioned sure, but also add on The Shining, 2001, Lolita, and Full Metal Jacket.

For me it's probably "All quiet on the western fron" (based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque).

Other impressing movies:

"Black Hawk Down"

"Life is beautiful" (A movie about Jews in Ausschwitz)

For me, it was "Saving Private Ryan", mainly because before I saw it I had been a bit of a WWII buff, building models of the planes and tanks and playing video games and reading books, but the first scene of the movie during the Omaha Beach invasion was so realistic and terrifyingly violent that I couldn't sleep very well for a week, and my models became symbols of terrible death instead of cool machines.

Just watched " Dead Presidents" again the other night. Its a great movie IMO. Very sad , disturbing and shows the plight of inner city life.

The Pianist

At least, the first 2/3s. Very good movie, a great chronicle of (in part) the change of one guy from brilliant pianist to street rat. What disturbed me was that it seems like a very realistic portrait of what happened, or in general what happens when people are placed into situations like that. I could see that happening today, among the places and people I've known, given the same circumstances. War is hell.

The Audition

A Japanese horror film. I submit that one doesn't know disturbing movies until they've seen this movie. I mean, 'The Ring' and 'Seven' are disturbing enough, but they both seemed lame after I watched this movie.

Saving Private Ryan was not as bad for me as I thought it would be. I guess the hype about the invasion sequence gave an impression turned out to be overblown. Not that the viloence wasn't well done or graphic but I guess i steeled myself for worse. As a historian if I were to make a film it would be about Antietam, and that would make D-Day look like a walk on the beach.

I dont know why this hasn't been mentioned yet or how I managed to forget it myself, United 93.

As a former employee, and someone who had been in th eair that day, it was a difficult movie to get through. And The tension I felt was physical my body hurt at the end of that movie and I sobbed through the entire credit reel. However, it's another movie that I was GLAD I went to see.

i'm part way through Irreversible and i've got to say that it's pretty fuken disturbing, from what i can gather it's a story told in reverse...i'm well aware of what lay ahead...though i don't know if i'm prepared for the rape scene. camera work as avant garde as it is has made me dizzy!

i couldn't get the translated dvd so i'm watching it in french.

It really freaked me out. I never wanted a poo during a movie as much as i did during that one!

Omg dont get me started on that. I couldnt sleep for 3 weeks after this one. Perhaps one of the most difficult scenes in cinema is during this movie where they "show" Hell for like 30 seconds.

The Birds. I still shutter when they show the dead guy in the bedroom. First you see just his feet extending out into view and then you see his face with his eyes pecked out. As if a glimpse wasn't enough, the camera does a quick tight shot as well.

Misery. Especially the scene where Kathy Bates smashes James Caan's foot with a sledge hammer. Man, just typing that hurts.

Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.

Sixth Sense. Numerous scenes were upsetting but the one where the kid is talking to Cole and then turns and walks away and you see he has an obvious gunshot wound to his head.

I haven't seen United 93 yet but I have a question for those who have. What is the atmosphere like when the film ends? Is it one of those situations where you can hear a pin drop in the theatre and everyone shuffles out, very quietly?

When I saw the film at the Vue Leicester Square, the film ended and the few people who were in the cinema did not move or rush out as if the last person out was a monkey. However, as soon as the credits appeared on the screen, someone clapped and soon everyone joined in. When I saw the film again in Brighton, the moody cinema staff simply turned on the cleaners' lights before the end credits even started, so everyone left quietly without a murmur.

I have a double feature that left me disturbed for a time

While movies like Full Metal Jacket or The Passion of the Christ didn't shock me that much, the first film that was very disturbing to me (though not anymore) is Braveheart. The first time I saw it, which was at what used to be the all Thursday night movie viewing a teacher made at school, I left the auditorium with my hands trembling, because it was the first time I saw something this graphic. I also agree about A Clockwork Orange. Though I didn't react the same way like after the first time I saw Braveheart, it was still shocking.

Another movie I'd consider a bit disturbing, and happens to be one of my favourites, is the Italian movie "L'Ultimo Capodanno". Most shocking in that movie is how Monica Belucci, in her role as Giulia, lost her mind when she found out her husband was cheating on her. **SPOILER ALERT** She later ends up killing her husband with a harpoon at their own dinner party.



This is the most disturbing role ever played by Monica Belucci IMO.

I think if a movie can be made to feel so real with its content and your mind is tricked into believing that for that moment its real then thats what makes a disturbed scene / film.

my contenders are:

1. Casualties of war - Rape scenes , (based on true events also)
2. The Accused - Rape scene also very real.
3. The Deer Hunter - Russian Roulette scenes

now i've watched Irreversible again i take back my innitial thoughts, it's definately a brave, well made and great film...it highlights the violence that humans are capable of, the anal rape scene is just horrific, but atleast they haven't trivialized the scene, they've actually shown rape in it's brutal reality. I still think it's a very in your face film, it is disturbing but a film worthy of viewing.

For those of you that think 'The Day After' is a good intrepretation of a nuclear war, you should get a copy of the British docufilm 'Threads'.

Set in 1980s Britain, its about a limited nuclear exchange and the aftermath going up to 50 years from the war. Some of it is truely and utterly horrifying, like a mailman machinegunning civilians, people being caught in the outside when the bomb goes off, babies being born to survivors.

Its a very good film, watch it but be warned.

I agree The Day After was very disturbing. I was 11 when it came out and made a deep impression. Made me sleepless for many nights.

However, when I love the 80s talked about it I had to laugh at all the celebretiy commentators who shared the same feelings I had about the movie. It scared us all sh!tless.

I have to agree with the people who said Se7en was a disturbing movie. Even more disturbing, in my mind, was Fallen (1998) starring Denzel Washington.

Both of those movies show evil prevailing. Very disturbing.

You are correct - Fallen WAS very disturbing.....
