GERMANIA ANNO ZERO 


I've heard good things about this. I reckon I need to see it.
It's probably not what you think.  GERMANY YEAR ZERO is the title in English (it's 1948, Italian Neorealism).  It is extraordinarily powerful; not violent, not gory, but, shocking. 

When I first saw BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN (1925) it disturbed me.
So yeah- I know what you mean.

When I was in high school, I went to see ANTHROPHAGUS for the first time.
It bothered me so bad I walked out halfway through!
Saw it again, years later, on VHS and it barely creeped me out a little.

yeah quite tame by today's standards

the quasi-sequel ABSURD is better imo. and more disturbing!

Both movies had some shocking scenes, but for the most part- just plain boring.

When I saw Vampira in a clip from PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE (1959) on the opening of Chiller Theater in 1968- it f**ked me up. She scared the s**t out of me.

I don't know how anyone ever considered The Wizard of Oz a kids' show when I've always thought it was utterly disturbing.

Never been able to enjoy surreal movies. Even Alice in Wonderland disturbs me a bit, whereas strangely brutal violence tends not to (unless it involves kids).

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer stuck with me for a while. It was one of those films where, when it ends, you say "OK, that was good... but I don't ever want to see it again."
I felt exactly the same way about HENRY: PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER.  Decades passed before I watched it again.  I remembered it accurately.  It's excellent, unusual, hugely depressing, and DISTURBING.  Really, a great but impossible to recommend film.

BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN is a great film.  I think you could compare BATTLESHIP POTEMKIN with GERMANIA ANNO ZERO, but it's not a War film; it's a post-War film, like, post apocalypse...  it's about a family trying to survive... cinematic downer.  You won't forget it, once you've seen it.

Matewan is another movie that disturbed me. My next door neighbor when I was a kid was from West Virginia and that incident, the massacre and the coal company wars, made a deep impression on her life. I watched the movie with her (the second time I saw it) and asked her opinion and she said the culture was right, the portrayal of the miners living as slaves in all but name to government-backed companies that were like crime empires. Moreso than anyplace I can think of (even Texas) Appalachia is a country within a country to this day. Just a disturbing but well-made film.

The TV movies Baffled, Crowhaven Farm and Something Evil scared the crap out of me.

There's also two scenes in two non horror films which disturbed me: the interrogation scene with the human head in Gorky Park and the little girl with the bleeding teddy bear in Still of The Night.  Buggedout Buggedout

''Never let me go''

A very disturbibg movie about human being literally reduced to resources to be consumed by the rich and quietly accepting it instead of fighting it. A terrible movie for today's world and a vgery disturbing one given it's message.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
