Most Controversial Movies of All Time

The Top Ten

1 A Clockwork Orange

Withdrawn in all forms and not re-released until after the death (27 years later) of the director, Stanley Kubrick, who feared the "droogs" would come and get him and his family, as there had already been copycat crimes committed.

This movie was released back in 1971? That's pretty old for such a controversial film like this.

A classic movie! Crossed all the boundaries

Heard it was banned - zxm

2 A Serbian Film

Anyone who watches the unrated version would almost certainly vote for this film.

This movie is so messed up! Scarred me for
Days...

NEVER EVER watch this - harr4

That baby rape scene though...

3 Salo

It shows how barbaric, twisted and perverted human beings can be. In my opinion, this movie is the most controversial and disturbing of them all. I can't imagine people sitting in a movie theater watching it! - mood333

4 The Passion of the Christ

this is one of the movies in which I suffered more, beacuse my saw how Father was punished wrongly; but I felt worse, when I realized that He died because of all the sins I have made - rock2metal

Mel Gibson Details the Last 12 Hours of Jesus' Life in a brutal way (maybe that's the truth maybe not... ) and that has given birth to a big controversy for his movie - MatrixGuy

Maybe Gibson exaggerated some things with Jesus punishment. We don't know it exactly but still this movie is classic! - Alexandr

When there's a movie that doesn't involve white Christians feeling sorry, it sucks

5 Cannibal Holocaust

The possible snuff film. - MoldySock

This deserves the #1 spot. Judging by the synopsis, I will never watch this.
It sounds like the worst thing to ever come out of Italy since Benito Mussolini. - PerfectImpulseX

6 The Last Temptation of Christ
7 Fahrenheit 9/11
8 South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

This movie's original rating was NC-17 but it was changed to R two weeks before it's release - CommentandList

9 Freaks
10 Natural Born Killers

The Contenders

11 Caligula
12 Song of the South

Huh. Doesn't look controversial from the picture of a happy cartoon bunny on the cover. I have been wrong before though. - RalphBob

13 Kids

When I saw this movie I found it extremely lame. Nothing shocked me in this overrated movie. I live in Europe and if it's typical American to call a film like this controversial,I think you got very restricted lifes back there.

14 The Human Centipede

This movie is SO screwed up on so many ways. It should definitely be higher on the list.

15 Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer

One of the most disturbing movies in history the shocking deaths and brutal violence will make you cringe - egnomac
