The Top Ten

Cannibal Holocaust
Yikes! Some celebrate this film as an unflinchingly truthful portrait of human savagery, others think it's a work as noxious as anything produced by Leni Riefenstahl. But anyone who has seen Ruggero Deodato's 1980 film will agree about its intensity.


2The Tournament

Great and very intense non-stop action movie with countless fight scenes


3Shoot 'Em Up

I would say the part in Alien where the first alien comes out of the guy's stomach is very intense. The whole movie is very intense



Every single killing was intense... And creepy



7Jacob's Ladder

A somber atmospheric movie that makes you feel for confusion of the character with a plot that keeps you on your toes.


8A Clockwork Orange

Needs know introduction...


9The Deer Hunter

Amazing story... Contains the infamous Russian Roulette scene...



Danny Boyle's 1996 kinetic adaptation of Irvine Welsh's book about Scottish drug addicts is filled with intense moments, starting with the joyous anarchy of its opening sequence in which junkies flee the filth to Iggy Pop's "Lust For Life. " But the bit that's close to unwatchable has anti-hero Renton withdrawing from heroin and hallucinating the reanimation of his dead mate's baby. Drugs?


The Contenders

11The Silence of the Lambs
One of if not the best horror/crime thrillers of all time!

12Saving Private Ryan
This movie deserves it's own countdown for disturbing moments.

13A Serbian Film (2010)
This movie beats them all trust me. This is the most horrific soul-rips movie of all time. If you can't watch A Clockwork Orange because the rape happens in it. You definitely need to stay away from this movie and not even do a search about it.

14The Dark Knight Rises
