    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. 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. 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.
