15 most disturbing movies..

I haven't seen all these excerpt for "Requiem for a dream" and "Hills have eyes" and i doubt that i want to watch them, after all the gory details in their reviews below , and they appear as they are depicted at the website of the good folks at feel free to puke on your keyboard as you read through the reviews...

1. The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

Alexandre Aja's remake of the Wes Craven thriller The Hills Have Eyes both maintained and modernized the raw, gritty feel of the original, telling the same story of a family of terrorized travelers with unrelenting intensity and gore. There's certainly no lack of blood and guts to be found early on in the film, though it isn't the movie's gore factor that makes it so effectively disturbing. Rather, the assault on the camper about half-way through the film will undoubtedly test your horror-film resiliency. A gun is held to the head of a newborn while one of the attackers – a mutated redneck hill-dweller – suckles at the mother's breast. Meanwhile, a second attacker rapes the younger sister just inches away from the corpse of the gut-shot grandmother. All of which concludes with the brains of the new mother blown across the walls while the father, tied to a tree outside, screams and cries as flames engulf his body. It's a gut-wrenching, harrowing scene filmed with unflinching honesty, and never sentimentalized by director Aja. In many ways, it pulls fewer punches than Craven's original, which seems almost tame in comparison.

2.The Exorcist

There are definitely images to be found within The Exorcist that will both chill and disturb you, but perhaps nothing about the film is more disturbing than the simple conceit: There are forces of evil beyond our ability to control, beyond the natural world, which can press themselves upon us at any moment, robbing us of our minds and hearts, defeating our gods in favor of our devils. It is to the film's credit that much of the movie is played almost entirely within reality. We are witness to the relationship between a mother and her sick daughter and the soul-searching of a troubled priest. That these characters are treated as humans, allowed to be fully-fleshed and offered the appropriate drama, makes the scares that much more effective. A little girl lurching upward from the bed, molesting herself with a crucifix. Her head spinning around in a terrifying 360-degrees. The spider-walk down the stairs and the deep, throaty voice of the devil speaking through her. Each of these elements chills us to the bone for all the time we've spent in the company of real, legitimate characters, leading lives so very much like our own, suggesting that this could happen, perhaps, to us all…

3.A Clockwork Orange

Kubrick's classic adaptation of Anthony Burgess' 1962 novel A Clockwork Orange offers a more stylized and poetic dissertation on the violent side of human nature. The story of a man named Alex and his "droogs" – his companions in ultra-violence – the film depicts a relentless succession of seemingly unmotivated murders, beatings and rapes. No character emerges from the film unscathed by their own avarice. Most chilling, however, is the often strange juxtaposition between the film's violent imagery and music seldom associated with such brutality, such as when Alex frequently croons "Singing in the Rain" when committing some of his most heinous acts. Malcolm McDowell's cold, icy performance, Kubrick's distant, unsentimental direction and the imagery of the Ludovico treatment make A Clockwork Orange one of the classically disturbing films about the dark depths of the human mind.


Audition is the kind of film made legendary by tales of audience members fainting, vomiting or fleeing the theater in a rage. Japanese director Takashi Miike – known for any number of equally controversial films – has crafted a truly disturbing, though never quite terrifying, film about obsession. When Aoyama falls in love with Asami, he can't know the atrocities she's committed. He can't know about the men she's murdered, and the dismembered, tongueless, footless, fingerless man she keeps in the burlap sack inside her home. The same man who laps up the vomit she hurls into a dog dish every evening. Aoyama can't know what she plans to do to him, paralyzing him, torturing him with needles in his eyes and severing his foot with piano wire. And neither can we. Which makes the film all the more stomach wrenching as we watch these acts unfold on-screen.


Prior to his murder, Italian director Pier Paolo Pasolini crafted a film based upon the Marquis de Sade's classic work, "The 120 Days of Sodom." That film was called Salo. It told the tale of four powerful men – a bishop, a duke, a magistrate and a president – all of whom retreat to a palace in Italy with a number of kidnapped men and women, as well as a handful of prostitutes, and require the participants to debase themselves in the most horrific of ways. Rape and torture abound, as well as the consumption of human excrement. Those who do not participate are murdered.
