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

3Cannibal 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.

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

5Requiem 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.


6The Exorcist
I've heard that the movie was cursed and so I had nightmares about the devil trying to get me. but don't worry I'm over that now. I just got to accept the fact that it's only a movie.
I've heard that while this was playing people were running out of the theater screaming. people passing out, and even throwing up. so far as when it played next time the theater included "exorcist barf bags".
this movie scared me so much I couldn't get to sleep the first time I saw it but it got me into horror.

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.

8A Clockwork Orange
No. but it was deemed "pornographic" because of the sexual violence.
Is this a porno?
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!

9Henry - 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.

The Contenders

I don't get this movie. I really don't get it at all. there are lots of movies in this world that I don't understand.

12Menace 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!

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

14The Evil Dead
I've seen bloddier movies than this. This was released back in 1981. That was a time where really gory movies are really, really rare so it would make sense why it was originally rated X.


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

17Saw III

18Beyond the Darkness

19I Spit On Your Grave (2010)

20Fight Club

21Men 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

22The Piano Teacher

Just shows how twisted up Romans were.

More sad actually. salo deserves 1 spot though

25Saw IV


Oh my god. this is the most disturbing film ever no sound, no colour and creepy as hell the first bit creeped me out and I watch horror films with out twiching
Hoever made this is a sick person.

28Melancholie 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.

29Suicide Club

This movie is just messed up. Have not seen it? Well then, it has a 12 year old Dakota Fanning getting RAPED.
This movie is not all disturbing besides one scene. WHERE A 12 YEAR OLD GIRL (played by Dakota Fanning) GETS RAPED BY PERSON LIKE 3 TIMES HER AGE. *shudder* it is so messed up.


59The Victim

60The Green Elephant

... I saw someone get chopped in half at the waist. In detail. But it was a great movie. Definitely not the most disturbing but pretty bad.

64Hostel: Part II

65Pink Flamingos



68The Human Centipede
This should be higher above the list.

69Donnie Darko



72Vase de Noces
This film is a grotesque art house film about an autistic/mad farmer who falls in love with his pig and he finds out that they have piglets but when they preferred their mother than him he hangs them all and the sow drowns in mud. Then the farmer drags the pig out and buries it but he was committing suicide by burning himself alive so he made a disgusting "tea" that is made of urine, feces and vomit and then later hangs himself and in the end you see his spirit uprising and that's the end of the film

73Where the Dead Go to Die

This Japanese horror film was banned in the UK for its sexual violence about some total deranged loner who appears to be a doctor kidnaps a young couple who have been dating and asks them if they had sex or not they didn't so the loner tortures them to death
