I was just recommending this film to someone: Requiem For A Dream.  Fantastic, well made film but it's one that makes you want to commit suicide after watching.

They'd showed us this one in re-hab.

And...

What's that sound?

Is it the rush of fans of this film as they escape from their asylum to defend it?

I believe it is. TongueOut

Zardoz  has spoken!   Cheers

Also, let me add "Brazil."  I know it's not hentai/torture-porn/etc, but I watched the end of that movie and fipped a big fat finger at the screen for Terry Gilliam.

The best example to me was brought up on the "sick" movies thread: HATED (1994), the documentary about G.G. Allin, the self-destructive punk singer/performance artist who was determined to kill himself, and was successful.  Full of degrading and self-abusive behavior.  Oh, and it has a "pee" scene...

Early John Waters films (PINK FLAMINGOS, FEMALE TROUBLE) always give me that "feel bad" feeling.   I know they're at least partially intended as comedies, but they convey such a low and grotesque opinion of humanity I find it hard to laugh much.  I got much the same feeling from MEET THE FEEBLES.

Dead Ringers made me feel icky and dirty for hrs and I couldn't even finish Crash
DEAD RINGERS definitely a groan generator, sat thru it once, it's morbidly riveting, but you'd never want to sit thru it again... perfect FEEL BAD movie.  I don't see how a woman could get through it even once.  I think that's Cronenberg's stock in trade, the complete creep-out.  Think THE BROOD, think VIDEODROME.  Interestingly, I can't say that the films are "bad" in any way.  Nasty is more the word...
Oh yeh, CRONENBERG made a film CRASH in 1996, ironically it's not the CRASH (2004) I believe you're referring to... Man, I wanna see that '96 CRASH with HOLLY HUNTER...

Is BELA trying to claw that green wicked-witch-of-the-west makeup off his face?   Poor guy, couldn't appreciate him at that late date in his career under all that glop (but, he did get to say "BLAAAHHYUHNN!!!" as the Monster.)  TeddyR 
STAR 80, great job, so horrible to witness.  Reminds me of a couple other "ugh" inducing flix: FEAR and PLAY MISTY FOR ME.  The endings may be a relief, but these films never feel "good." 

Let's not forget this superior "ugh" inducer:

Pink Flamingos gave me a bad feeling.  I still can't eat eggs to this day after watching that film.  It made me want to sit in the floor in my shower fully clothed, turn the water on, and cry.

Some good downers mentioned here but, as for me, Mark of the Devil was a really really bad one, with base, vile characters torturing and killing innocent and (sometimes) not-so-innocent people under the guise of "witch hunts".

At the end, I just stared at the screen, feeling thoroughly repulsed and dirty.  I've never been able to look at Herbert Lom the same way since.

Somebody at the sickest movies thread told me that "The girl next door" should be listed here. It's not the comedy with elisha Cuthbert, but a extremely sad and depressing 2007 film. It depicts the torture and murder of a teenager at the hands of her aunt and a bunch of kids. Most of the violence is actually off screen, but it is so methodical and relentless it makes you feel completely powerless.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

I agree with tideland.  I love Terry Gilliam, but this movie just depressed the hell out of me.  I have to say The Mist as well.  I truly hated that ending.
