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 Copycat

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

6 The Deer Hunter

Amazing story... Contains the infamous Russian Roulette scene... - 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 A Clockwork Orange
10 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.

The Contenders

11 The Dark Knight

The boat scene and the last Harvey dent bit

13 A Serbian Film (2010) V 2 Comments
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!
