Most Intense Movies Ever Made


The Top Ten

1 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. - Alexandr

2 Shoot 'Em Up
3 The Tournament

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

4 Alien

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

5 The Deer Hunter

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

6 Copycat

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

7 Jacob'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

8 Freaks
9 Requiem for a Dream

Did you guys know this movie was inspired by another movie named "Perfect Blue"?

Both this movie and Black Swan were inspired by "Perfect Blue". Seriously, Darren Aronofsky wouldn't have been this well-known if "Perfect Blue" hadn't existed.

10 The Dark Knight

Interrogation scene

The boat scene and the last Harvey dent bit

Mindblowing movie ever made

The Contenders

11 A Clockwork Orange
12 Saving Private Ryan

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

13 A Serbian Film (2010)

Nasty - Just real nasty

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.

14 Gangs of Wasseypur

This is not intense this is super intense - Radioactive

15 Trainspotting

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

16 The Silence of the Lambs

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

I love this movie so much!

17 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2

Best Movie EVER

18 Duel
19 Whiplash
20 Hard Candy
21 The Dark Knight Rises
22 Interstellar

This movie kept me on the edge of my seat, even the second time around.

23 The Shining

Psycho-Horror for Adults! - Strobo

The best movie of stanley kubrick...GREAT

24 Perfect Blue
25 Ghost In the Shell (1995)
26 Midnight Express

Nothing comes close

27 Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Luke Skywalker is Dead R.I.P.

28 The Human Centipede

Beats it I think the first one

29 The 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.

30 Planet of the Apes
31 The Lord of the Rings : The Return of the King
32 Man of Steel
33 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
34 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
35 The Exorcist
36 Black Swan

It was inspired by "Perfect Blue" movie.

37 Straw Dogs (1971)

This british movie of 1970 with Dustin Hoffman gets pretty intense in suspence and violence. A must for every thrill seeker.

38 The Wages of Fear
39 Titanic
40 A Simple Plan
41 Man with a Movie Camera
42 La Jetée
43 2001: A Space Odyssey
44 Apocalypse Now
45 In the Mood for Love
46 Taxi Driver
47 Metropolis
48 Blue Velvet
49 The Wild Bunch
50 Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

So Intense, so much action and battles going on, the new Death Star did massive destruction to 5 Planets and a lot of people died, also Han Solo’s death was shocking yet sad at the same time, and it’s hard to believe this was a Syar Wars movie.
