Top 10 Most Disturbing Movies

Well, well, here is a list of the movies that make you think....why???

The Top Ten

1 Salo Salo Product Image

Imagine you're 12-15 years old.

You have been abducted and taken to an inaccessible castle in quite literally the middle of nowhere. Nobody knows where you are nor what will happen to you. Four wealthy men who fancy themselves "lawless and without religion" specifically chose you and fifteen other children based on aesthetic beauty. Their pleasure is paramount, and for the next 120 days you will be obey their extreme laws; powerless and without hope.

The film is based on the novel "120 Days of Sodom" by Marquis de Sade. Think hedonism on steroids.

The film itself is sadism & hopelessness incarnate. It doesn't rely on violence and gore that much.

Overall, I'm quite sure such scenarios happened in history/are happening right now. And despite the context, I must admit it's beautifully shot.

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.

Just sick Film About wealthy pigs living there Disgusting Fantasy

2 A Serbian Film A Serbian Film Product Image

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

This has to be the most sick and perverted film since the saw movies

A fun and uplifting story about a poor family in Serbia that gets the opportunity of a lifetime. I don't want to spoil any thing but this is a real great film and you should watch it.

3 Cannibal Holocaust Cannibal Holocaust Product Image

I've never seen it and I know I never will even if I could. It's understandable that it's so controversial and banned in some countries. How graphic it is alone is sick, but the fact that it contains real animal abuse/killing makes it all the more terrifying. The people who come up with such graphic and disturbing movies such as this need to be put in a mental hospital.

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"

People, there are live animals being killed on screen. What kind of laws did they have wherever they made this?

I regret watching this movie so much. The scene were a ACTUAL turtle is killed still haunts me. If I had one wish, I would wish for this movie to not exist at all.

4 A Clockwork Orange A Clockwork Orange Product Image

When Alex was turned back to normal (insane once again) I was so damn pissed, when he finally got his comeuppance...its not like we were sorry for him

Deez guys are rapists

No. but it was deemed "pornographic" because of the sexual violence.

Is this a porno?

5 Requiem for a Dream Requiem for a Dream Product Image

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.

Overrated drug-movie. Moral-seeking movie. Not very realistic and exagerated in drug taking. The mother who goes crazy for amphetamine derived dietpills? A dopamine antagonist, a valium, would have stopped her " condition " showed in the hospital in a few minutes. The others on heroin? What about a methadon program? Benzodiazepines that can be easely be obtained to stop the withdrawn " exagerated effects "? Alcohol that even works to ease the withdrawn? Not a bad movie but the " disturbing " parts are too exagerated. This exageration was only made to make people scary about drugs who don't know anything about addiction, drugs, pharmacology of the drugs etc... A unrealistic disturbing movie or in other words, a disturbing fiction.

6 Martyrs Martyrs Product Image

This has got to be at least one of the most saddest movies out there

This is a genuinely good movie with a great story, but it's not always comfortable to watch.

I agree. It's a masterpiece. A hard-to-watch masterpiece but a masterpiece nonetheless.

This and dogtooth.

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

7 Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer Product Image

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.

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer is one of the most disturbing films I've ever seen. This is a great film but not for the faint of heart.

8 Human Centipede 2-Full Sequence Human Centipede 2-Full Sequence Product Image

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.

I pray I never have to stay in the same room as the people who made this

This film is disgusting!

9 The Exorcist The Exorcist Product Image

Yo my uncle's house burnt down and he owned this movie and this movie was the only thing In his house that was untouched by the fire, but other then that this is a great movie the only part that made me cringe was when the girl was in that hospital and they put that syringe in her neck and blood sprayed everywhere

This movie is actually not scary at all. The reason why it is so horrible for people are 3:
1) Religious people tend to believe exorcism are real, and they think watching the movie itself can summon a demon (lol).
2) In the 70's people were even more religious and gullible
3) Since the movie became popular, kids nowadays watch it for curiosity and to challenge themselves because they want to appear bold, despite their age. Because of their young age, they are traumatized.
4) These 3 reasons led to a mythization of the creepyness of the movie, thus leading to more kids watching it for curiosity or challenge, and so on...

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.

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

10 Eraserhead Eraserhead Product Image

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.

The Contenders

11 Sausage Party Sausage Party Product Image
12 Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World Product Image

13 Menace II Society Menace II Society Product Image

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!

we should stop the violence everywhere! Increase the Peace!

most disturbing hood movie of all time so much remorseless violence

So unbelievable, a disturbing on sight in the Hood

14 Antichrist Antichrist Product Image

Very artsy (without just being so for the sake of it) and pretty disturbing, especially towards the end.

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

15 Aftermath Aftermath Product Image
16 Beyond the Darkness Beyond the Darkness Product Image

Gross gross gross made me nearly sick and I'm not kidding.

17 The Human Centipede The Human Centipede Product Image

Yeah but this a dumb movie I mean the whole thing is just about 3 people stitched mouth to anus walking around some dudes house it's gross but dumb the 2nd one is kind of better but way more disturbing the second one should be way higher on the list

Even though this movie is messed up. The film is actually pretty tame when it comes to the disgusting parts and it’s more soul crushing than a kill fest. If your into medical horror films, than this film is for you.

This should be higher above the list.

This movie is so disturbing that it should be for 18+

18 I Spit On Your Grave (2010) I Spit On Your Grave (2010) Product Image

Warning: Very very brutal

19 Perfume: The Story of a Murderer Perfume: The Story of a Murderer Product Image

I am surprised that this movie is not near the top! It is creative and good though.

20 The Evil Dead The Evil Dead Product Image

This film is so over the top and ridiculous it isn't even disturbing. One of the best b-horror film ever made and the two sequels are even better.


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.

21 Saw Saw Product Image

Brutal as hell

This movie got really disturbing especially the scene in which zep tried to kill Dr Gordon's family

22 Melancholie der Engel

Genuinely evil movie.

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.

23 Audition Audition Product Image

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

24 36 Steps (36 Pasos)
25 August Underground's Mordum August Underground's Mordum   Product Image

August underground must be higher they are the closest in existence to look like a snuff film. This is the worst of all of them

Crappy film that takes the whole shock angle WAY to far

Not sure if it's the 2nd or 3rd instalment in the trilogy. But all of the August underground movies are very close to being a snuff film.

It's a Indie Snuff Movie and it should deserv more Attention
