Most Intense Movies Ever Made


The Top TenXW

1Cannibal 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. - Alexandr

2The Tournament

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

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 - Alexandr

5The Deer Hunter

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


Every single killing was intense... And creepy - Alexandr

7Jacob's Ladder

The movie runs like an acid trip. Things don't happen chronologically and you never know what's real. Brilliantly filmed, terrifying to watch.

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

9A Clockwork Orange
10The Dark Knight

The boat scene and the last Harvey dent bit

The Contenders

11Requiem for a Dream

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? - Alexandr

13Saving Private Ryan

This movie deserves it's own countdown for disturbing moments.

14A Serbian Film (2010)
15The Silence of the Lambs

One of if not the best horror/crime thrillers of all time!

16The Dark Knight Rises
17Gangs of Wasseypur

This is not intense this is super intense - Radioactive

18The Human Centipede

Beats it I think the first one

19Hard Candy
20The Thing (1982)

The blood, gore, and body parts on the alien are all extreme and gross. I had to watch the whole movie without throwing up and it was not easy.
