I saw probably the most disturbing movie, at least, that I've ever seen last week. Wify and I were in Blockbuster and there really wasn't anything grabbing us. As we looked at the selections, we came up a bunch of horror movies produced by Fangoria, the magazine. We looked a few over and ended up renting 2. 1 was an Australian movie about kids who were run off the road by a truck they call a road train. They end up taking the big rig and mayhem ensues. Not a horrible movie but I don't need to see it again. The other was a doozy based on a true story. The movie was called Grimm Love (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grimm_Love). When I say it was disturbing, that doesn't begin to describe it. It's based on a true story of a guy named Armin Meiwes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Meiwes). He placed an ad on a cannibalism site and found a taker. You may have heard the case, from Germany. The only reason why we rented it was that I heard the story and that it did have a halfway named actress in it(Keri Russell). It was one of those movies that when it was over, we were stunned. It was truly the most disturbing movie I've ever seen. What is your most disturbing movie.

I've seen some I wish I could "un-see".

Right now, I'd say Hostel and Jacob's Ladder. I'm having some trouble with the direction the Saw franchise is taking, too. :(

The older I get, the less "okay" I am with some themes. I think is because I have more experience with people who have actually had awful things happen to them.

I agree. I used to like movies some would call torture porn but I kind of had an epiphany while watching Captivity. I can do horror movies but movies where it's just gore just aren't entertaining.

Hostel really bothered me. Now Boxing Helena was pretty awful but the ending made it "okay", I guess. :(

Bug with Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon and Harry Connick Jr.



An unhinged war veteran holes up with a lonely woman in a spooky Oklahoma motel room. The line between reality and delusion is blurred as they discover a bug infestation.


This movie ended up being one of the creepiest flicks I have ever seen and was not what I thought it would be when I got it. Ashley Judd should have received a Oscar for her performance.

The Ring bothered me. Not while I was watching it, but I had dreams that night that had some of the images from the movie in them. I never want to even see an ad for it again.


I hate bloody slasher films, but love good suspense films. I never cared much for the Freddy/Jason/Michael Myers kinds of movies (although the first Halloween is a great suspense movie), because of the gore factor. I know Freddy is somewhat funny in his speeches, but I had a case once, well, that's all I can say.

Movies like The Silence Of The Lambs, though, I really enjoy, because they're about the characters and the mystery, and the gore is just part of the larger picture, not the point of the movie itself.

The only thing I didn't like about The Ring is that it was never explained why people would die from watching the tape. At least I didn't see any explanation.

I kind of wanted the blonde newsie Mom to die. She was a complete waste of space. That was a creepy movie, though. The original Japanese film was nowhere near as creepy (for me, anyway).

However, there are some pretty disturbing Japanese movies. Audition anyone? Or anything by Takashi Miike.

Wolf Creek. Open Water was disturbing too. I have still never seen that Boxing Helena movie.

I meant to see that one but I missed it. Is it gory-disturbing or psychologically-disturbing?

Neither really just really cant put my finger on why it disturbed me.


On second thought it had some psychologically-disturbing secenes but I dont want to spoil it for you but the ending kind of freaked me out.

Good one. That was pretty disturbing

The original "Last House on the Left" was also pretty bothersome.

Jacob's Ladder

That's my most disturbing movie. Seeing it in San Francisco years ago didn't help.

District 9 of all things. The scene where they had the guy strapped into the frame and were putting different alien weapons in his mutating hand then running electricity through it to get him to pull the triggers. The aliens in that film totally creeped me the eff out. brrr...

I love what I have seen of Miike's movies, I'm also quite a fan of other far Eastern horror movies, I have a couple from Korea. I'll have to check when I get home for the titles.

I really enjoyed District 9 as well. I couldn't believe it either because I usually don't go for that kind of stuff.

Horror films that scarred me for life: The Exorcist, The Grudge, The Strangers

After The Grudge I swore off horror films forever. A friend convinced me to go with him to see The Strangers. I haven't spoken to him since. :D

Me, too- but I wouldn't say it was dissturbing because of the aliens. To me it was disturbing because of the things the corporate paramilitary government actions.

Not to sound like a Dummy or anything.

Jacob's Ladder

I wrote an honest to God novel in college. It was about a soldier on his first serious patrol in Viet Nam. His platoon hunkers down for the night and as darkness falls they find themselves accidentally surrounded by a large number of NVA troops. Due to a freak in the terrain they aren't detected. Yet. As they are trying to sneak out of the perimeter he steps on a mine. Click. His platoon leader and squad sargent have a whispered come-to-Jesus talk with him. They can't get near him for fear of triggering something else and if he steps off the trigger the explosion will alert the surrounding battalion and they'll all get killed.

The rest of the troops are now probing for mines as they exfiltrate and it's taking forever. The big saving grace is that the unit surrounding them is a support unit carrying rice and ammo and has set up shitty security so they have a fair chance of slipping out of range and calling in an air strike before dawn finds them exposed. *IF* the guy can stand there till they get clear before making a jump for it and hoping he lives. 'course then he would have to outrun the little people shooting at him and get clear of an air strike. So it's looking kinda grim. But he agrees to but them the time and stands there and watches them slowly dissapear into the jungle.

It was told as a series of flashbacks as the guy struggles through his later life. The flashbacks get kind of surreal and almost seem to be blending into his reality and changing it. It gets so bad he imagines he's slipping back and forth through time and starts to go crazy. He's living this out while standing there waiting to die from one thing or another and the "flashbacks" are half dozing exhaustion nightmares imagining what his life would have been like had he lived.

Had it almost all the way knocked out when we saw Jacobs Ladder in the theaters. The storyline was so fricking close to what I had been writing I coulda puked. I mean, like, SCARY close. Still think I had a cleaner storyline, but it took the wind right out of my sails and it got boxed. Lost the draft in a move a couple years later.

Believe me, don't waste your time. I don't turn many movies off but I turned that one off.

Disturbing in the sense that you feel bad and creeped out when it's over.

Hostel 1 and 2 are the worst ones in my mind. I do not have any wish to see either of those "movies" again...
