I do have a real answer here: Hard Candy.

It was an interesting mental game, but ultimately I will never watch it again.

I loved Hard Candy. And I could see why it could be disturbing to men gay or straight (or bi, or anything else in the alphabet). I haven't seen any new movies this year but I've heard "Promosing Young Woman" strikes the same type of notes.

Style is the second cousin to class

Actually, now that think more about it, any movies in which animals are killed I find to be disturbing. I'll happily watch Arnold Schwarzenegger gun down a thousand terrorists and feel nothing but joy. But kill one dog on screen and you've made an enemy for life in me.

Yup. When they killed John Wick's dog I turned off the movie and never watched the rest of the movie or the sequels.

Lord of the Flies and when Piggy gets killed. Just the whole mood of how society breaks down.


That was a rough scene, but not sure it made the whole movie disturbing.

My sophomore English teacher, Ms. Phillips, made us read Lord of the Flies. I didn't get it then, but it's certainly proven to be a metaphor for society and it's mental state. I'm surprised we don't hear more about it when talking about the division in the U.S.

Well it did for me. Good point about it's a metaphor for society and it's mental state.

Yeah, now that was disturbing. There was no need to kill the man's dog.

As a child my psyche was scarred permanently by "Return To Oz" (whats the harm in a little electroshock therapy for the kids) and the "Alice In Wonderland" live film with Carol Channing in the cast. She scared the F outta me.

I watched all kinds of violent and scary movies as a kid and I can honestly say that I never found any of them disturbing. Our mother would just put my sister and I down in front of the TV and let us watch whatever we wanted. I think I was about 6 or 7 when I saw The Exorcist. I didn't like it but it didn't scare me. I just thought it was crap. The only moments in movies that I found in any way to be disturbing was when Apollo Creed died in Rocky IV (completely unnecessary, by the way), the old woman in the bath in The Shining and any scene from E.T. that features the E.T. character. He creeps me out. Other than those, none come to mind.

Lol, E.T. scared you more than The Exorcist.

I think the film "Trouble Every Day" really disturbed me... as a grown viewer.

E.T. STILL scares me. And I don't know why. I guess it's like how some people have an irrational fear of clowns. There was a guy I worked with a few years ago who told us he was scared of clowns so the next day the engineer came in wearing a clown costume for a laugh. Just to see what he'd do. Bad idea. The man with the clown fear literally start shaking and almost blacked out when he saw him in the costume. The poor guy could barely speak. I laughed at the time but I felt sorry for him afterwards. Anyway, that's kind of how I feel about E.T.

Yeah, that E.T. thing, although likeable, was kinda gross, like "ew, don't touch it!!!"

I was watching a VH1(I think) show on the top 30 disturbing movies or movies about something or another and one movie that starred Italian actress Monica Bellucci where she was raped by street pimp or something after she came out of a bar. They showed a few very quick scenes

.

one of the commentators a famous burlesque show entertainer, talked about how disturbing it was and I think she said she and other people had to walk out of the theater.

.
The few very quick scenes and her commentary burned something in my mind that, having not even seen the movie I count it as a most disturbing

I had to look it up

Irréversible

Irreversible_ver2.jpg

Irréversible (French pronunciation: ​[iʁevɛʁsibl]) is a 2002 French psychological thriller drama film, written and directed by Gaspar Noé and starring Monica Bellucci, Vincent Cassel, and Albert Dupontel. The film employs a reverse chronology and follows two men through the streets of Paris as they seek to avenge a brutally raped girlfriend. Much of the film's soundtrack was composed by Thomas Bangalter, one half of the former electronic music duo Daft Punk.

Irréversible competed for the Palme d'Or at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and won the Bronze Horse at the Stockholm International Film Festival.

Irréversible has been associated with a series of films defined as the cinéma du corps ("cinema of the body"), which according to Palmer[5] includes: an attenuated use of narrative, assaulting and often illegible cinematography, confrontational subject material, and a pervasive sense of social nihilism or despair. Irréversible has also been associated with the New French Extremity movement.

The film was particularly controversial upon its release for its graphic portrayal of violence, specifically the scene where a man is savagely bludgeoned to death with a fire extinguisher and its 10-minute long take rape of Alex (Monica Bellucci), who is then brutally beaten into a coma. The film also attracted accusations of homophobia. American film critic Roger

Ebert
called Irréversible "a movie so violent and cruel that most people will find it unwatchable".

There are two incredibly disturbing events in that film. The other one is the beating to death of a guy by fire extinguisher to his head, until its all caved in.... and it feels and looks completely real from what I remember.

That reminds me of the scene in "Pan's Labyrinth" where the general kills a famers son in front of everyone with a broken bottle to the face. I found that so disturbing that I haven't watched the movie again even though I liked it a lot.

The man had serious psychological issues in relation to clowns. I've never seen anybody that scared in real life before or since. A few people started whistling the circus theme anytime he was around lol

It's not just how E.T. looks, it's also his voice. I hate it!

Some of you all are lightweights. razz

I'm pretty desensitized to most of what "normal" people would find disturbing. A few moves though kind of creeped me out. One was the move salò, or the 120 days of sodom. That one is pretty messed up. Another one is Tetsuo: The Iron Man. The sheer strangeness of that movie weirded me out. Also A Serbian Film is a really fucked up movie. The only move though, that was so disturbing to me that i turned it off, and still haven't finished, is Hereditary. I watched it up to the car scene. The one with the brother and his sister. The whole atmosphere of that movie was a major downer. I might finish it one day. I'm in no big hurry though.

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.
