Most Disturbing Film You've Ever Seen

Wed Jun 28, 2006 4:14 am

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?

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.

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.

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!

EBS "Attention Signal" wav

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.

Oh, and speaking of disturbing movies, I watched The Silence of the Lambs the other day...again. While not as disturbing as other movies, it definitely has that aura to it. I'd have to say that its my favorite movie.  Big grin

Ouch, now THAT is disturbing to say the least.

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.

Seven ranks up there for me. I liked the movie it was incredibly well done but I will never see it again.

Hannibal was very disturbing. Espesially the end with Ray Liota. I nearly vomited my popcorn.

I found A Clockwork Orange was difficult the first time but I grew to find it a remarkable movie and I like it a lot now.

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.

Kids is totally disturbing to watch but for me I will have to say a strange choice: Dead Poets Society.

It does have beautiful settings and Robin Williams (one of my favorite actors) but, although I admit the movie was great, that ending makes it very difficult to watch - I am not sure I would like to watch it again.

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.

That has got to be the most disturbing film I have ever seen. It's a great movie, but it still freaks me out when I see the scene where you see the girl coming out of the well on the video.

Appearantly, there's also a 'The Ring Two', haven't seen that one though. Anybody that has seen it?

Not me, but my mum was pregnant with me when she saw Rosemary's Baby. Not the world's best idea.


A film that left an impression on me was Breaker Morant.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080310/

Based on true events during the Boer War which is probably why the impact on me was bigger.

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.

Anything with Tom Cruise has disturbed me.

'The Ring'

Worst Movie Ever

The Date Movie

Truly a disturbing, sick, horrible and cheap waste of celluloid.

I think that was the point

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

I don't understand what the fuss with Clockwork Orange was about.

I agree he is a pathetic actor.
Passion of the Christ absolutely horrific
