Interesting pick and one which I agree with. That film is very disturbing on many levels.

I have to add the original Last House on the Left. The film I'm adding to the creepiest serial killer films list - Albert Fish: In Sin He Found Salvation (2007)...

Cronenburg's THE BROOD is disturbing. The kill scenes actually had my pulse racing a bit, it has pretty much the most disturbing death scene I've seen. the weird classical soundtrack gives it an extra creepy atmosphere. although the ending is slightly far-fetched.



I have to add the original Last House on the Left.
I was thinking that... then I remembered there's a kind of oddball comedy streak running through half the film. but i've also seen some scenes that they weren't allowed to put in the final cut (all from the scene where they torture the 2 girls in the wood area) that would've made it much more disturbing. I think you can see them as extras on one one of the DVD versions...

Terry Gilliam's Tideland. It's not disturbingly gory, but it literally took me a week of walking around in a daze to process it. It is a about a young girl whose mother is a bipolar drug addict and whose father is a musician and addict. When her mother dies, she and her father go to his grandmother's house in the middle of nowhere in Kansas. They plan to fix up the house, which has been long abandoned, but the father dies of a drug overdose, leaving the girl on her own with her toys (three doll heads that begin to talk to her). Very messed up things happen in the movie. It's not a horror movie, and the performances are excellent, but I don't think I could ever watch it again because it disturbed me so greatly. I realize you're probably looking for horror movies, but this one disturbed me far more than any horror movie. The things the story puts this little girl through are horrific. I'm glad I saw it, because it is very well done, but yeesh.

Come on guys some of these picks are slightly disturbing at best. Here are my choices for pure soul crushing, make you feel weird even for watching films. I put them in

A Serbian Film -IMO the granddaddy of them all. Pushes every boundary and taboo I can think of while still being an engaging and entertaining horror film. Made me feel dirty for days after watching.

The Girl Next Door This may be even more disturbing than serbian film due to the fact that its based on a true story. A terrifying story of child abuse that goes really far in terms of pushing boundaries. The young cast and high production values make this much more disturbing than crap like August Underground.  While I might rewatch Serbian Film due to its entertainment value I will never come back to this harrowing film.

William Lustig's Maniac-The lack of sympathetic characters and the sadistic quality of the violence makes this a deeply disturbing film IMO. Henry potrait of a serial killer comes close but that film has moments of comedy that make it watchable.

The Men Behind the Sun films-I have not seen all of these but from what I have seen I would say they definitely belong on this list. Chronicling some of the most reprehensible thing's done by the Japanese during the second world war these films pull no punches in showing you torture, desperation and wide scale murder. In these film's I have seen a baby pulled out of a pregnant women with a bayonet (Men Behind the Sun 4), killing of a cat (the first one) and many more ridiculously disturbing images. Supposedly the first one utilized real human body parts for the special effects. Here is a bit of trivia I found on imdb about the making of the first film.

"The young woman who is subjected to the lengthy and torturous experiment involving frostbite is actually director Mou's niece. She was the only person he could find willing to play the disturbing and physically demanding role which involved holding a pair of real corpse arms which were frozen for real in the subzero Manchurian temperatures.She nearly contacted frostbite herself filming it"

I strongly second A Serbian Film. Maybe the most obvious choice as far as disturbing goes, but it desreves it. I mentioned this before, but the film was so incredibly well made (cinematography, soundtrack, etc.) that the really sick parts hit you ten times as hard. But in a weird way, it wasn't the really over the top disgusting stuff that got to me, it was the more subtle parts that unnerved me very deeply. For instance, the scene where Milos is in that little girl's granmothers house and she's offering her granddaughter to him. Something about the way she looks and delivers her lines......I mean s**t!  :buggedout:
Edit: I forgot about the short film Cutting Moments. Pretty messed up.

Cannibal Holocaust -- No contest!!

VERY bad acting, and some of the scenes are weak, but the fact that they use REAL footage of animal cruelty, the behaviour of the main characters, and the final death and rape scenes, as well as some scenes of sexual torture, just make this disturbing.

I actually felt dirty after watching it!!

I'd have to say AUDITION (1999) is disturbing on many levels.  Horrific and also disgusting, frightening, saddening.  A very powerful film, but not for the weak-kneed or lily-livered. 

That being said, I personally found the original LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (1972) intensely disturbing, not more so than AUDITION, but in a kind of personal way.  It's exploitative and unforgiving... unforgivable.  There's few movies I truly despise, but that's one of them.  I recognize it is an important film.  I just hate it.

I agree.  Films with actual violence, especially when the violence was actually committed specifically FOR the film, is more disturbing to me than anything fictional I'm likely to see.  I don't know how to rate Cannibal Holocaust for this reason.  I think parts of the film border on brilliant, other parts are amateurish, and other parts are abominable.  It's a film I'm not sure whether to give like an 8 or 9 to, or a 1, out of 10.

I've actually avoided seeing Men Behind the Sun because of the real nature of parts of the film.

Uwe Boll's Darfur aka Attack On Darfur: Very disturbing, very brutal and will stay with you for days.  :bluesad:

Jans Rautenbach's Jannie Totsiens [Johnny Farewell]: the most disturbing film I have ever seen in my life. Frightening, horrific, eerie and funny. Yes, funny. Disturbing indeed but with a generous helping of humor.

No seriously. I saw most of it on TV, found it confusing/weird. I bought it on video, hoping to that the movie would be more clear/less weird.  Nope.

Not on the level, because I've seen it more than once, but Tourist Trap disturbed the crap out of me.  The whole idea of the mannequins coming to life...  Ugh.

Lars Von Trier's Anti-Christ horrified and disturbed me on many levels.  The death of hope, the giving in to hate.  The beautiful and distorted shots of the wilderness, the acorns raining on the rooftops.  So much wrong.  I went with my girlfriend to see the movie, and got in a really dumb argument.  We were really angry, and sat apart from each other, and then the movie started.   We both had nightmares that night.

I saw the last half of Funny Games.  That was enough for me.

The OG version of the Vanishing does make for some queasy viewing as well.

Yep, that was one I was coming in to mention.  MELONCHOLIA is pretty disturbing too, though not as graphic.  Von Trier's stuff in general is just messed up.

Cronenberg's DEAD RINGERS.  Again, not overly graphic, just this long spiral of despair.

DEAR ZACHARY.  Just makes you miserable.

And what is especially disturbing to me is how many critics gave a favorable review to this film, especially as there is so little character development. The characters being much the same at the end of the film, as they are at the beginning of the film (I wanted to slap the heck out of 'em at the beginning of the film, and I still wanted to slap the heck out of 'em at the end of the film) and as my drama professor in college said: "This makes for a bad film."

If you want a film on a similiar topic, then watch "L.I.E.," which stands for Long Island Expressway. Someways as disturbing as "Happiness," but, in other ways, a more realistic look at the topic.

I have been  wanting to see this film due to people talking about the other parts of the film that are not just about the gore and disturbing behaviour, But the gore and disturbing behaviour make me frightened to even glance at that film!

I have a feeling I may have gotten a Lucio Fulci movie confused with this one. from what i have read SALO - 120 DAYS OF SODOM(1975) Directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini was so bad that it is not a movie i will ever even bother watching.

"Pasolini was murdered by being run over several times with his own car, dying on 2 November 1975 on the beach at Ostia, near Rome. Pasolini was buried in Casarsa, in his beloved Friuli.Giuseppe Pelosi, a seventeen-year-old hustler, was arrested and confessed to murdering Pasolini. Thirty years later, on 7 May 2005, he retracted his confession, which he said was made under the threat of violence to his family. He claimed that three people "with a southern accent" had committed the murder, insulting Pasolini as a "dirty communist".
Other evidence uncovered in 2005 pointed to Pasolini's having been murdered by an extortionist. Testimony by Pasolini's friend Sergio Citti indicated that some of the rolls of film from Salò had been stolen, and that Pasolini had been going to meet with the thieves after a visit to Stockholm, November 2, 1975.Despite the Roman police's reopening of the murder case following Pelosi's statement of May 2005, the judges charged with investigating it determined the new elements insufficient for them to continue the inquiry."

Eraserhead.  Nothing overly specific...I just sit there for five minutes after I watch it.
Requiem For A Dream- It's so close to true about addicts...delving into robbery, prostituting yourself, getting infected in your arm and choosing to still shoot up said arm until it's amputated, then wanting to go back and attempt it again. :buggedout:

Aftermath (1994) Its been a while since I've seen this, but from what I can remember its about a mortician that (ugh) does the unspeakable to a female corpse. Good luck stomaching this one, Your mileage may vary.

10 to Midnight (1983) about a serial killer murdering young women, with Charles Bronson as the police officer trying to bring him to justice. Lots of female nudity, which I normally don't have a problem with, but in this case the combination of nudity and the killing of young women was a big turn-off.
