The Top Ten

Way worse than 'A Serbian Film' in terms of disturbing content; A Serbian Film feels like just that: a film, while Salo is not only a political and historical study, but feels eerily real throughout. Watching this movie was perhaps the most unpleasant two hours of my life, but those were two hours that I feel were well spent.
Anyone that has actually seen this would understand. Based on the book by Marquis De Sade. Just a disturbing film about old men living out their disgusting sexual fantasies.

2A Serbian Film
Just by reading the plot and everything that happens in the film, you'll see why this deserves the number 1 spot. Most f'd up movie ever made. It makes Salo look like a kid's film.
This is the real most disturbing movie ever made it has so much that makes really disturbing that I could write an article on everything that makes this movie so uncomfortable
The best ever! If u'r so sick of course

God. The torture scene at the end and when she throws up in the bowl and feeds it to the guy. That was too far.


The Last 15 minutes were the most grusome scenes from a movie I've ever seen! just thinking about makes me cringe

4Requiem for a Dream
how screwed up that the drugs can make you, you can actually see it in front of your eyes.
Watching this movie made me depressed haha, real disturbing movie for real.


5Cannibal Holocaust
This movie was banned in many countries because they thought it was a real "snuff" film. The director was arrested and sentenced for life in prison because they thought it was a real snuff film (but he was later released"
Turtle? Oh please. What about human violence? I love this movie but it shows the sad truth about us - human is the worst and the most selfish creature


The scene where they cut up the live turtle stands as one of the most horrific visuals ever put to film.

6A Clockwork Orange
A bunch of Hilter's clans that toutures people in their daily lives! At least I never laid a hand on a woman's genitals! That's just wrong!

7Human Centipede 2-Full Sequence
I don't understand how anyone who saw the first one could watch the sequel. I'm voting on this based on the trend set by the first one which I regret to this day, 2 years down the line, having ever watched.
The first one wasn't that bad... but this is truly awful. do not watch if you are squeamish.

Ouch, I'm gonna puke after seeing that woman cutting her own vagina off.


10Menace II Society
Its a great movie, I thought the first time I watched it, I Though Larenz Tate was just some dumb Nickelodeon actor but when he killed those Asians I thought OMG!


most disturbing hood movie of all time so much remorseless violence
we should stop the violence everywhere! Increase the Peace!

The Contenders

11Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer
I've seen a clockwork orange, Salo and Requiem for a Dream and they didn't phase me. Henry on the other hand haunts me to this day. The scene where Otis Molests a dead woman will never leave my head. It is the only movie I have ever regretted watching.


It's disturbing but great too. The family massacre scene has to be one of the most creepiest and down right disturbing movie scenes of all time.

Aroused an emmense amount of sadness in me. A film ill never forget.

13The Exorcist

this movie scared me so much I couldn't get to sleep the first time I saw it but it got me into horror.


Only movie that scared me

14The Evil Dead
Woman got raped by a tree? Ouch and awkward, that's gonna leave some splinters.


16Ichi the Killer
Oh god! This movie is over the top due to the gore and at some movie festival show vomit bags were handed out and one person vomited and the other person fainted if I were you I wouldn't watch this movie

17Beyond the Darkness

18I Spit On Your Grave (2010)

19The Piano Teacher

20Fight Club

21Saw IV


More sad actually. salo deserves 1 spot though


24Men Behind The Sun
I would avoid this film if I were you! There are some harsh and graphic torture such as

A baby was left out in the snow until it froze to death
A woman had her hands out frozen and dipped into a hot chemical acid
A man in a chamber was lying on the floor flat and you can see his intestines and organ coming out of his anus
A small boy suffered autopsy
And the most repulsive, disturbing, harsh and intense is this part
A live cat was surrounded by thousands of hungry rats and the rats ate the cat... ALIVE! Then the rats where burned alive. I HATED THIS FILM!
Very disturbing and true as well


Hoever made this is a sick person.

27Suicide Club

28Saw II

Monica Bellucci should think twice not to have sex with creeps again. She'll be swore on her vag and having hard time walking.

30Melancholie der Engel
Serbian film, Salo, cannibal Holocaust They're all disney movies compared to this montage of brutality and animal cruelty and just f-ed up stuff. I truly doubt the people who are looking at this comment right now even seen this. And if you did, then you know what I'm talking about.
