Cannibal Holocaust is a little more disturbing....it makes you feel like life is worthless!  Cannibal Ferox is mainly about gruesome effects--it's gross, but you don't really get the scummy feeling after watching it.

Cannibal Holocaust was jusr plain nasty. Left you feeling ashamed to be part of the human race. Shame The Blair Witch Project ripped off the idea of "People go off, dissapear, leaving behind only some film...here's what happened on that film.", and got "critical acclaim" for originality.

8mm, although more mainstream, had the same affect. Left me feeling that if folks into that stuff existed then I'd feel REALLY scummy for having to share a planet with them.

I'm late to this thread and don't have any new films to add, so I'm just going to attack ben rosson's list.

CLEAN SHAVEN - Now this was a pretty disturbing movie, and one of the better ones I've seen regarding schizophrenics, who are usually portrayed as suffering from something of a "glamorously crazy" madness.  No, regular schizophrenia is sad and dirty, and somebody suffering from it is usually none to pleasant to be around.  It probably went too far tying in the murders (made it seem a bit sensational), but of course a movie needs a plot.  Anyway, I forget the lead actor's name, but who knew he could do something like this?  I don't think you'll look at cleaning your fingernails the same way after seeing this.

FUNNY GAMES - This film usually comes up in "disturbing" lists, but I found it a muddled, preachy mess.  The director made a movie about people being tortured and then tried to make the audience complicit in the torture.  "Look at you people.  You like this, these people being tortured.  You make me sick."  The problem is that these are not people being tortured.  They're movie characters.  Movie characters in the movie the director made.  He tries to salvage the movie from this criticism near the end where the two torturers have a conversation that all characters may be real in some alternate universe.  Bulls**t.  To take this movie seriously you would have to agree with the statement that the only reason people watch "disturbing" movies is for the voyeuristic thrill of seeing people tortured.  I'm sure there are people like that, but this movie isn't going to touch them.  My guess would be that more people who watch movies like this empathize with the victims, rather than the victimizers.  Take another film in this list, REQUIEM FOR A DREAM.  We the audience empathize with the characters, which is what makes their eventual destruction horrifying and "disturbing".  Sorry, the director of FUNNY GAMES wants to make his dirty movie, indict the audience and feel above it all.  Well f**k you too.

DESECRATION - While this film did have several effective images, I found the rest of it hilariously bad.  Dante Tomaselli seems to have some talent, and maybe his other pictures might be good, but I don't share the man's hang-ups at all, and actually find them quite humorous.

NOWHERE - Presume you mean Gregg Araki's film.  Can't stand the man's body of work.  Found a niche in the pseudo-nihilism of early 90's cinema and figured nihilism was the point.  What can I say, I find nihilism lazy, not disturbing.

Sorry, if this post ended up being me criticizing other people's choices.  I mostly find specific moments in films more disturbing than the overall film.  Also I like the sound of my own voice, even if it's in print.

I Stand Alone was disturbingly s**tty.

As far as comments, take Nathan Shumate's review at coldfusionvideo.com and up the hate by a factor of 15. It was a real piece of s**t of a film.

Well its been years since I have seen it, but "Bad boy Bubby", its an Australian film about some guy thats lived his whole life locked in an appartment, raised by his mother, she tells him that he cant go outside because of poison gas or something like that, so whenever she leaves she wears a gas mask. Bubby is really messed in the head, he has the mind of a child. he has sex with his mum, and he has a mummified cat at one point, he eventually gets out and gets to explor the real world.

I cant say I found this disturbing, (except for the incest) but it is certainly an odd film

The movie set out to be 'shocking' and failed. Miserably. You can't be shocked by something that you can't give a frog's fat dick about, quite bluntly.

Hey man, how's it going. I noticed you claimed my list to be "tame". Could you drop me a list of trulty disturbing films, since all the ones i listed might as well be put out by Disney. I spend a good deal of time scoping out such films, so if you could help me out man, i would appreciate it. Take care and hook a brotha up.

it's going alright, only 30 minutes of work left. here's some i would recommend:

 -In A Glass Cage (Spain)
 -I Stand Alone (one poster on here didn't like it, but i thought it was a cool film)
 -Salo: 120 Days of Sodom (talk about disgusting!)
 -Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer
 
That's about all I can think of for now, off the top of my head. good luck.
