Does anyone out there own any real dark disturbing films that you're afraid your friends might stop talking to you if you showed them to them.

This just popped in my mind because last weekend I showed a couple friends this Spanish film "In A Glass Cage," a film that touches on such lively topics and torture, death, pedophilia, and naziism. I know all the things that will so get you laid! :P

But they were both open-minded to it though, it probably also helps that the film isn't so graphic in it's presentation of the material, but it lets the stark images linger  a little more in the viewer's mind.

Requiem for a Dream - Direct by Darren Aronofsky (Pi) Really starkdepiction of drug addiction and what crap people will put themselves through for a fix. Features Jennifer Connelly in some sick sex scenes.  I don't know why but this thing really haunted me.

Trek_Geezer, I agree about Requiem.  Fantastic film, but one of the final scenes, with Connelly is quite disturbing.

.  .  .  .  Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is the most disturbing film that I've seen, but I don't think anyone will think less of you for liking it, if they like horror films.

All of the cannibal flicks....

The thing I like about HENRY is that it's not even really that violent or gross [though that "home invasion" scene is pretty bad]...it's just creepy because you know there are guys like that out there.  It's one of my favorite horror films.

LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT still packs a wallop though it's pretty dated now.

FREAKS is still pretty effective too, as are the early John Waters films.

yeah I just showed Last House on the Left to some friends last weekend. we all had fun laughing at the 2-D, drive-in character villains. but when it came to the scenes of what they do to the poor girls in the woods: we were all pretty quiet.

I'd have to agree with you Trek, when I left the theatre after watching Requiem for the 1st time I felt like someone kicked me in the gut real hard, and that I also needed a cold shower!

very true eeeee5 & jmc. I think Henry reaches more disturbing levels simply for the fact that it's realistic in it's portrayel of those type of creeps, not exploitational in a natural born killers kind of way. although i did like NBK, it was obviously going more for a surreal, satire thing than Henry.

Island of Death, Last House on the Left, and I Spit On Your Grave are all pretty nasty.  Probably the worst stuff in my collection, until they finally release Cannibal Holocaust later this year on domestic DVD (I want to see it, but with a pending US release I'm not going to spend $35 on eBay for a bootleg).

I Spit is definently not a fun one to watch with friends.  Have not done so and probably never will.

That one has a lot of real animal death in it....I've never seen it and don't really want to.  I can handle the cannibal stuff maybe because it's mostly wild animals being killed, but having a cat torn apart by rats is just too much for me.   I don't like the animal killing even in the cannibal flicks but for some reason I can deal with that.

JMC,

Actually if I'm not mistaken, the cat - rat scene is fake.  Not 100% sure on that, but I believe it was all staged.

"Funny Games" is the most disturbing movie I've seen in the last few years. It's a German flick about a couple of preppy guys who terrorize a family at a remote vacation cabin. It's a very well-done movie but it's frighteningly twisted and upsetting. I definitely recommend the movie but don't say I didn't warn you. Some say the movie is a satire but the horror of this one stuck with me for a long time.

I also echo the recommendations of "Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer." It's a classic in the genre and a must-see. And, yes, very disutrbing.

Another disturbing film I saw more recently is "Capturing the Friedmans," a documentary about a Long Island family ripped apart when the father and one of the sons are arrested for being pedophiles. This one is disturbing in a whole different way than a fictional horror movie.

Another movie I found tremendously disturbing when I was a teenager is "The Hills Have Eyes." I don't know if I'd still think that if I saw it today but I really have no desire to see it again. Same with "I Spit on Your Grave." The bathtub scene is probably the sickest scene I've ever seen in a movie.
