Most Disturbing Film You've Ever Seen

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.

There are two. "Titanic" and "Pearl Harbor."

It's painful to watch people totally fuck up history. I had to shut them both off after a few minutes.

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?

I shall soon see I'm sure .....  scared

"Portrait of Henry: A Serial Killer"

Very graphic, very real. Some scenes were filmed with a handheld video camera, so it seems authentic. Waaay too authentic.

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.

"The Hustler" starring Paul Newman had a profound effect on me, the scene where they break his thumbs....uuurrrggghh! Any scene where someone is held and either raped or beaten gives me the willies.

I saw a trailer for "Hostel"...I never, ever want to see that film!

You mean this? To this day it makes my skin crawl. Whenever you heard it on TV or radio you just prayed that the signal ended in ten seconds with someone saying, "This is a test." If it went for 25 seconds, it meant the real thing. I remember when they accidentally activated the Emergency Broadcast System in February 1971. Mom rounded up us kids and started to bring us to the nearby government fallout shelter.

That sounds hot.

When I saw it, The Ring would have been my choice. House of 1000 Corpses rates up there as well. The Saw movies. I hear Hostel is pretty f-ed up, I may have to check that out.

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.
