Well I've seen many a fine movie before, but there are a couple that, while really well done, were quite disturbing.

Happiness - While most of the movie deals with less disturbing content, Dylan Baker's Bill Maplewood really steals the show in this film. He plays an everyday dad living in suburbia who has a very dark secret.

Men Behind the Sun - This is a look into the Squadron 731, Japan's biological warfare center during WWII. The experiments the Japanese perform on their Chinese prisoners is the stuff of nightmares, but for me the most disturbing part is how the Japanese believed they were doing the right thing.

Funny Games - The villains in this film are truly only there to be villains. They give excuse after excuse as to why they are doing what they are doing, only to laugh it off and say they don't need a reason. They just enjoy it.

The Poughkeepsie Tapes - Witness the crimes of a serial killer through his hand held camera. 'Nuff said.

Ahhh. I love disturbing shit. I make it a point to find the weirdest, most fucked up movies and watch them. I guess to see if i can handle it? I've seen Funny Games and Poughkeepsie, i'll have to check those others out.

Here are some more:

Eraserhead - A man's girlfriend gives birth to a mutant baby. My second favorite movie ever.

Martyrs - A woman gets revenge on the people who abused her as a child. Then some crazy shit goes down. Lots of torture.

Jacob's Ladder - It's about a Vietnam war veteran who sees some fucked up shit.

And if you're really brave...

The Human Centipede (1&2) - You've heard about it. #1: A crazy scientist stitches three people together ass-to-mouth. I honestly didn't find it that bad, but apparently it's hard to handle for a lot of people. #2: A disturbed fan of the original film decides to make a 12 person centipede. I thought it was better than the first one, although it's pretty blatantly trying really hard to one-up the original in grossness (it succeeds).

Pretty much anything in the Guinea Pig series - A series of Japanese shock films ranging from pseudo-snuff to weird comedy-horror. Lots of gore. The only one i've ever watched was Mermaid in a Manhole, which remains the only film i've had to stop watching because it was too gross.

A Serbian Film - You've probably heard of this one, too. A aging porn star is coerced into making one last film, in which he commits a host of unspeakable acts.

Aftermath - Well, just look it up.

Begotten - Ehh, just look this one up too. This one disturbed me a little too much to get through the whole thing.

I've heard interesting things about Martyrs, but have yet to see it. Who knows, maybe I'll watch it today.

When you do, tell what you think! Smile No one else I know has ever heard of it nor watched it so it would be interesting to hear what another person thinks Razz

Unbelievable film. Unlike anything I've ever seen. I'm recommending it to the rest of the pennswO0ds crew.

There was this Korean film called "I Saw the Devil" that I watched a few weeks back. Pretty much, a special agent's bride-to-be gets kidnapped and killed by a notorious murderer, and she just so happens to be the special agent's boss. So, his boss tells him "I want you to find this bastard and make his life a living Hell." And oh, boy... The special agent does just that.

It's a bit disturbing because the killer usually rapes his victims right before he butchers them. And then there's another part in the story where you see the bad guy visit these cannibals, and one of them is preparing their next meal... *shudders*

There's some more stuff in it, but I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone.

I am so looking forward to I Saw the Devil. It's on Netflix Instant. ^_^ Now, if only I had two hours set aside to sit and watch it....

*obligatory Takashi Miike add*
Dumplings
Inside (a 2007 French Horror Flick)

I'm about to watch a movie that was gifted to me by one of my... er, gentlemen callers (no, not that kind of movie!) called Mute Witness. It looks like a pretty solid suspense flick that could be severely disturbing. Will report back.

I Saw the Devil is one hell of a wild ride. Me and a buddy of mine watched it at like 3 in the morning on Netflix and were geeking the entire time. It's in my top 5 favorite movies for sure.

Welp, since you brought up I Saw the Devil (which is a GREAT movie), i feel it's safe to add my favorite movie of all time, which is also Korean and stars the guy who plays the serial killer in I Saw the Devil; Oldboy. A man is kidnapped and locked in a hotel room for 15 years, then released and given 1 week to figure out who did it and why, and get revenge. And yes, the twist at the end is pretty disturbing. It is the greatest movie to ever exist and everyone should watch it.

Hell yeah! Oldboy is a tour de force. The fight scene in the hallway is so well done, and there's still so much more awesomeness.

Also, just got finished watching Inside. HOLY SHIT, that movie is intense! Two great French horror flicks finished today. I'm quite pleased.

The Cove - It isn't a horror movie. But it is disturbing documentary.

Wait... Do you mean... CANDLE COVE? *dramatic music*

Anyway, there was another movie that I saw recently which was either disturbing or just really weird, depending on how you looked at it. It's called "Yellow Brick Road". Pretty much, these investigators/explorers go out into this forest after hearing how this town's population walked in and either disappeared or ended up dead. So, being the genre blind people that they are, they want to discover what happened. Well... Along the way, strange stuff starts happening (of course it does; this is a horror movie, for Pete's sake!), such as old-timey music playing in the background. Then they start getting picked off one-by-one... But not by what you think.

The ending had me going "Wait, what?" because it was just so... weird. Iunno, if anyone wants to check it out, it should be on Netflix.

Another one which I'm sure a lot of people have seen is The Mothman Prophecies, which is just plain creepy. Still, it's one horror film that generally freaked me out, so I'd recommend it for those who haven't gotten a chance to watch it.

Since somebody brought up Takashi Miike, then I would like to suggest his film "Audition"

For those who don't know, it's a romance movie that takes a turn for the worse.

And to give you an idea of how disturbing this movie is: Rob Zombie and Eli Roth both had trouble watching it.

I've been thinking about watching that one, but never took the plunge. I'll have to watch it now.

Another great fucked-up French movie: Haute Tension. Your classic slasher flick, but with a twist.

The French know how to do horror.

Also, yes! Audition! Though honestly i thought it was pretty tame. Didn't bother me AT ALL. Razz But maybe i'm just a freak.

Haute Tension was a badass movie, even with the big twist.

Takashi Miike is a genius. Audition was superb, but his best film is either Visitor Q or the ridiculously over the top Ichi the Killer.

Also, if you're an anime fan, watch the entire Neon Genesis Evangelion series. Then watch its movie, End of Evangelion. It will be an experience you never forget. The Evangelion series is my absolute favorite series ever.

I've never watched Evangelion, but i've heard it's confusing as hell. I don't watch much anime, i mostly just read horror manga.

Well that was terrifying.

YOU'RE NOT THINKING CREATIVELY. *slasher smile*

I remember seeing that ages ago and wondering "What the Hell did I just watch?" but it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. I think the meaning was that creativity can be great, but it can also be very dark and destructive.

Yeah, a good trip to the High Octane Nightmare Fuel page for Web Animation will provide you with a) great lulz, b) jumpscares, or c) genuine terror. Don't Hug Me I'm Scared falls under the latter for me.

Re: Takashi Miike, Audition was the one that first came to mind, but all his stuff is pretty freaking gross. He directed one of the better episodes of the Masters of Horror series (which I'd also recommend a viewing of) called "Imprint" which, in his typical fashion, made me want to hide away from the world for a few days.

The manga is definitely better, but that's mostly because a manga can be however long the author wishes. I just thought as a film, Ichi the Killer was a total blast and truly well done.

But yeah, the manga is incredible. The twins are genuinely terrifying, Kakihara is a sadistic bastard, and the art is absolutely perfect.

I'm generally freaked out by the "GET CREATIVE" one more than the dining room one. That stuff is genuine nightmare fuel. I was about to pee myself.

I watched Matyrs quite awhile ago. It wasn't really that disturbing. I still don't get how people think that the Human Centipede movies are disturbing. I laughed my ass off all the way through it. I did watch Oldboy though, and that movie is quite amazing.

Oh lord, the Human Centipede movies were so full of delicious Ham that they were impossible to take seriously. Dr. Heiter frequently had pieces of the scenery stuck in his teeth.
