For me, it would have to be:

Scum The 1979 version doesn't disturb me now, but when I first saw the greenhouse scene I was in utter shock, as I'd never seen anything like it before.

Boys Don't Cry Hilary Swank delivered a wonderful performance, and to see her character tortured and humiliated was definitely unsettling.

Last House on the Left Even more than 30 years after it was released, it still has the power to shock, at least in my opinion. The two girls were innocent, likeable characters (until most movie victims today), and the murder scenes were shot in a gritty, almost documentary-like manner.

Requiem for a Dream .. Just urgh. The last five minutes, especially.

Irreversible .. Horrendous film. It was shown to me as part of a lecture last year, and I actually walked out of it because I couldn't take it.

Recently I've been very interested in censorship, video nasties and, in general, controversial films, and I was reading a unique "Top 10 scariest films" list today, which listed RFAD at the top of the list. I'm very curious to see it. ;)

Saw that is pretty digusting and just disturbing.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre was disturbing also.
Mirrors had a couple unsettling moments.

Try watching Irreversible with your mother! What an uncomfortable experience that was!

I definately agree with Rivendell on Requiem for a Dream and Irreversible, though RFAD is definately worth a watch. Irreversible, in my opinion, is for those with iron constitutions, it's highly disturbing.

I personally find Caligula quite unsettling aswell but that could just be me :p

I agree to Requiem for a Dream. The ending was disgusting (it's the best word I can find to describe it). It's a good movie, I totally recognize that, but I don't wanna watch it again... ever.

Trainspotting too. I only saw it once many many years ago (so, I was much younger) and I never wanted to see it again so I might be just having a prejudice against it, perhaps if I saw it now I wouldn't be so impressed. But still, it definately "traumatized" me at the time.

Kairo - the japanese movie that inspired the terrible remake Pulse - left me depressed for a couple of nights. It's scary and incredibly sad at the same time, it feels lonely and dark and moody the entire duration of the film. It left me wondering about my own loneliness.. :(

Redacted also left me extremely depressed. The movie is shocking and because it's filmed with hand cameras it feels raw and even more disturbing. The photo slideshow in the end really got to me, I couldn't stop crying for a couple of minutes (yes I'm that sensitive).

I was very impressed with In The Name of the Father when I first saw it because I couldn't help but think countless times about how would it feel to be tortured and placed under arrest for something you didn't do.

What's Redacted? I've heard some good things about it but not enough to know if it's a "watchable" film.

I've never found The Exorcist any more unsettling/disturbing than usual horrors, though I can see why it was so feared :p

To me "unsettling" isn't just about "scary". :D So I mentioned movies that actually disturbed me.

@ Marla - Redacted is a movie about some soldiers who raped an iraqi girl. It was directed by Brian de Palma. It's got some similarities to his movie Casualties of War but it's mostly filmed like amateur footage alternating with news footage which gives it a "reality tv" disturbing feel.

oh mah gawd. i would find that disturbing as well.

and also i thought the end of the mist was really disturbing. the fact that he shoots everyone in the car, and then the army comes to the rescue right after. it shook me up BAD.

OMG my father told me of haveing seen this. I'm not easly impressed, I've even watched some of the footage in the film more than once easly. But hearing about the way it is put up on that film, I'm scrared of watching it... I want to... but I'm scared.

I've seen pluse and like all american-japanese remaked it wasn't scary at all. But it was still very good.
Anyway this thread is just perfect! I'm even makeing up my own list of to-watch films :D too bad I can't remeber of any movie to put here at this late time... oh well maybe it will come to me tomorow.

Scum- The ending just tore me up with the boy in his room

Requiem for a Dream- I love this film to pieces, probably because it never fails to scare me

Hostel - Now Let me explain, it's a bit of a crappy film but when I watched it I had a virus and throughout the whole of the film I was sweating and squirming and ended up throwing up at one point (when nothing gorey was happening). So whenever I watch it that feeling always seems to return.

28 Days Later- Simply for the fact it is set in England.

Well, and you can make fun of me, but I don't watch horror movies. Just horror shows.

But War of the Worlds was quite, weird. Imagine blood veins all over your truck, walls, giant Tri-Pods peeing and crapping blood. Yeah....

Scariest Places on Earth ( I know not a movie, but I was quit disturbed )

Try watching the episode, at age 11, where these two girls killer hid in their closet, and killed them. :cen::cen:

I didn't see many but these are a few I could recall:
Heaven & Earth: It was poignant, I was young & disturbed when I saw the soldiers raping the female character, I was so sad & terrified.
The Joy Luck Club: watching how 1 woman was seduced & cheated by the man she thought she loved, killing her child in that depression really affected me.

17-08-08, 08:11
Both of the Hills Have Eyes remakes, because the rape scenes turned my stomach. They were so unnecessary, and I couldn't sleep after seeing them.

Irreversible was also bad, first because of the rape scene and second because of the guys heading being beaten to a pulp with a fire extinguisher.

I was very touched by that film as well, and I had a very eerie feeling by the time I first got to the end of it.The story was no surprise for me, as the book was the reason I got interested to see it, but I thought the film was better than the book, which caused me an intense nauseating sensation.Maybe that was it's point though.
I did watch the movie again, but the emotional effect wasn't the same.Yet I wouldn't have done it if was like the book, it made me feel as if I was suffocating.

I can't really think of a movie that affected me so much in a deeply negative way.But I'm sure I wouldn't watch The Skeleton Key or Love me if you dare again.They weren't that unsettting they definitely weren't good films either, just terribly boring and they left me with an unpleasant sensation after seeing them as if they were shoven down my throat.

"The Ring" and "The Grudge" really freaked me out when I saw them for the first time. When it comes to "unsettling" I'd have to say "Suicide Circle". I saw this movie a few weeks ago and it left me with a very hollow feeling inside. "The Orphanage" is also one of the few horror movies that really surprised me when I saw it and it also was deeply unsettling.

It's horribly obvious that it's fake (rubber limbs, anyone? :D) but it disturbed me... ack quite a bit. Just the general idea. Doesn't help that I got some interest in snuff films (NOT LIKE THAT. More like the interest I have in ye old witchcraft, withchunts, Bathory, etc.).


And Dark Water (original, japanese) made me weep a bit at the end :(

I have to agree there, that film and Girl, Interrupted really bothered me. They're both amazing movies, but they make me feel so uncomfortable watching them.

Another one for me too would have to be a movie called "Savior". The massacre scene by the river at the end of the movie was really disturbing. It's one of the few movies in recent years that actually made me cry.

Well, that's fine, you have your opinion. In mine, watching someone get the everloving crap beat out of them for no apparent reason is disturbing/unsettling. It has nothing to do with it being Jesus, as i am not religious. How do YOU consider blood, and gore and violence boring, exactly?

oh,belive me I know more about the business than anyone could think just by looking at me. But I find that movie to have nothing so.... it's more complicated than that... the movie it brutal no doubt, but it's brutally bad rather than brutally unsetting. It's just like any pure action movie, there are so many movies out there with brutal fight scenes or torture scenes that in the end aren't unsetting at all, just like The passion of the Christ, and in the end they are better movies than it.

Well, yes, there are better movies out there, this one has never been a favorite of my own.

But it is NOT just an action movie, you cannot throw The Passion into the same pile as, say, a James Bond flick, or Terminator. Shooting "Nameless Extra #3" in the face does not by any means, equal out to "Let's beat the heck out of innocent Jesus with metal torture instruments."

Yes of course, I was only makeing a comparision with other movies that are also brutaly violent but not unsetting.

For me The Passion of the Christ has been the worst and most boring piece of acting about Christianity (even any religion in the world) since Jesus Christ Superstar, and not even Da Vinci got to surpass it. Mel Gibson just doesn't fit into directing.

i understand your view, i just didn't know how you could watch that stuff without wincing. lol. but, i'm a girl, and therefore, i can get emotionally invested in things easily.. i've never watched another film so remotely religious as this one, let alone about Jesus and/or his crucification, and therefore, i had nothing to compare it to, nothing to pull me out of the film and make me think, "Wait a minute! That's not what happened!". i saw the movie at face value.

Midnight Express: for some reason this upset me deeply...rather embarrassing as I was watching it in a bar in spain. I had to go out of the room.

I have always been too scared to see The Exorcist so I was gobsmacked when my son announced he had watched it one night on his own after I had gone to bed..'and it wasn't that scary' so I guess it depends on your perception.

I thought these were excellent films. Very powerful and really "moved" me. I can't say I enjoyed them the way I enjoy other films, but I appreciated how they made me feel.

High School Musical.

Watch the live version, then say the film is unsettling. At least you can pause the DVD (or turn it off). When it's on stage, you close your eyes but it doesn't go away!!

Ichi the Killer upset me the first time I saw it, but I've seen it a few times now and it doesn't upset me any more. I don't really get upset by horror/thriller films now; I had to watch 20/25 for my dissertation, so I'm a little de-sensitised. Schindler's List always upsets me, because of the subject matter.

It was quite boring but I still found the fact that the murderer/murders was "based" and whatnot from real life events very unsettling.

I think The Devils Rejects is worth a watch regardless of wether it's similar haha. I don't find many similarities in the two anyway. Though House of a Thousand Corpses is much better in my opinion :tmb:

The UNRATED version of Rob Zombie's Halloween is rather unsettling. Some insane woman gets raped by a janitor's friend. Very unnecessary. :rolleyes:

Oh yes, TOTALLY unnecessary. It was sick. Clearly an attempt to "shock" the audience.

The rape scene is the reason I put American History X in my last post.

Seeing Edward Nortons bot-bot should be a thrilling experience but no..just no.

Closet Land is a movie that's stayed with me for quite some time. It stars Alan Rickman and Madeline Stow (I've probably even mentioned the film before).

She plays a childrens book author accused of hiding subversive messages in her children stories. One book she writes is Closetland. She is arrested and held captive. Rickman is her interrogator.

There are no other real characters, so the interaction between the two actors takes presidence and their acting takes center stage immediately. For without their strong portrayals the movie would fall abysmally.

In the end you see a human side of both characters. Stowe's maintains her innocence, but is almost forced to the brink of confession even though she's inocent.

Rickman is phenominal in his role. He has a firm belief he must do what he needs to extract necessary information for his country. You also see his internal struggle and how his 'soul' is affected by this dirty disgusting 'work', especially when weighed against the impact of her possible innocence.

There is no real violence, but the ability to convey the innevitable pushes this movie along just as much as the two stars.

I almost wonder if Closetland was a converted stage play. It could easily be handled in an intimate stage setting.

Hmm, unsettling.... apart from some pretty disturbing gore scenes I'd say off the top of my head, the movie that introduced the concept of anterograde amnesia to me, one of my favs - Memento, was definitely unsettling. I was fascinated and at the same time scared by it. The idea that there are real people out there, with this kind of condition... it's seems like something out of a greek tragedy.

There are other movies but I recently rewatched it for umpteenth time so...

Mermaid In a Manhole has some plot, unlike some movies of the series. The man which finds a mermaid is a painter and he wants to paint her because she looks so beautiful, but when she begins to die in pain and when the wounds on her body appear before his eyes she begs him to paint her with her blood and to show how she looks now on the canvas. SPOILER When whole her body turns into unrecognizable mush with bugs allover the place he chops her into pieces. SPOILER

To me it was hard to watch, but I see some artistic value and since this is Japanese movie, it is expected to think out of the box and all that stuff.

Japanese Horror is in equal portions horrifying and just plain disturbing.

Audition has to be the freakiest thing I have ever seen.

The opening half hour is amazing- the characters are set up so well.
The girl appears so cute and harmless that you just know something is wrong.

And then the scene cuts to the girl at home. Very creepy stuff.
The movie goes downhill from here, however- the scenes toward the end are so silly you can laugh at them.


The Original Ring, Ringu, is my fave horror of all time- gotta love long black-haired kids crawling out of wells :p

the only thing i liked about that movie was how subtle they were about naming (at least) one of the hostel patrons after a real person.

the lady who bathes in blood is based on a queen named Erzebet Bathory, (though they simply stuck with "Ms. Bathory"), who was known for killing and torturing young women to bathe in their blood. :yik:

She bathed in the blood of young peasant virgin girls to obtain eternal youth. She's not nearly as gruesome as some other characters in history such as Attila the Hun and Vlad III or also known as Vlad the Impaler.
Reading about their cruelty to other people is worse than watching any old slasher film and far more unsettling.

Yeah.

I've always been fascinated by Erzebet, though, as she is a female, and naturally, it is always perceived to be even more apalling and horrendous when a woman goes all mad and well, blood thirsty. I also find it odd than that more people don't know who she was.

But i do agree, reading about the shear violence and passion with which rulers and generals of old governed and enforced is much more disgusting and unsettling than anything modern cinema could possibly produce. I'm suprised Erzebet doesn't have her own movie, though.

Another movie i found unsettling is Irreversible, though i know its already been discussed.

I think for me its probably Forrest Gump, not when i originally watched it, it was a heart warmer then, but after i read the book.

For a low-budget film, and being Wes Craven's debut (correct me if I'm wrong), it's a pretty decent film. It brings a realism to the screen that I've never seen before in a film. Most of today's "torture" films are too glossy and expensive to be really convincing, but Last House got to me, and I've only seen it in it's censored form. The BBFC rejected the film twice, and demanded cuts when it was submitted in 2002 because they felt it was dangerous. Now only six years later, an uncut DVD is in the works.

I think one of the biggest reasons why I shy away from Wes Craven movies is because of the childhood trauma I went through with Nightmare on Elm Street haha.

I saw it and I thought it was a good movie. I didn't think it was too disturbing though. Worse for me have been...
The Hills Have Eyes 1 - The first time I watched it I couldn't see it all it freaked me out too much. But now I can watch it fine. It's always the first time with horror movies!
The Cell - Just very weird movie...
The Ring 1 remake - Haven't watched it all cos I started watching it and had to go out and I didnt want to watch the rest cos it was freaky lol.
Um House on Haunted Hill freaked me out a bit because it was like the first horror movie I saw and I was young.
Silent Hill actually really freaked me out. I thought it was scary...

There are a couple of others but I can't remember now...

^ Hard Candy is brilliant, the actress in it is brilliant and really scary when she suddenly switches from nice little girl into psycho child!

Okay - I think this discussion and googling of nasty fetish stuff is kind of stepping over a boundary here (no, I'm NOT googling it, because I'm having a hard enough time holding onto my lunch what with the baby and all - I do not need anything else to induce me to barf right now!), and so can we please let it lie? No more discussion of nasty internet vids or this goes right to old folks home ;)

Unsettling films? Does Ace Ventura - Pet Detective count? It single handedly nurtured my life long hatred of and aversion to Jim Carrey... I do not care how great he is in other films, I just have to see his leering mug in a magazine and want to smash it in repeatedly with a flat iron.

One film that did stay with me for a long time was Event Horizon - mainly due to one question that someone asks 'what did they (the crew of the EH) experience t make them do what they did?'. I am absolutely fascinated with the concept of alternative dimensions, and due to this along with the simple fact that there is no tangible 'monster' to blame for what happens - no psycho, no alien, no serial killer, just their own minds playing tricks on them (or is it....) - it really made me turn my brain knots trying to fathom out what it was that they experienced. It was all very Lovecraftian, and I just love stuff like that... :D

Another thing that really unsettled me was, ironically, an episode of the X-Files - the one with the inbred family who kept their mother in a box under the bed. That really, really freaked me out for some reason...

The Pianist, Twist, Uzumaki, Ring (Japanese version)

And there are a lot of episodes of Without a Trace and Law and Order: SVU/CI that have left me disturbed.

re: The Hottie and the Nottie.

According to WIKI.
The Hottie And The Nottie is a 2008 romantic comedy film starring Paris Hilton, Joel Moore, Christine Lakin, and The Greg Wilson. It was written by Heidi Ferrer (Dawson's Creek), and is the first full-length feature film directed by Tom Putnam. The film started shooting in January 2007 and debuted on February 8, 2008. Its first-day earnings were $9,000[2], with it going on to earn $27,696 on its opening weekend, each theater averaging $249.



I've never heard of any movie making less money in a general release. I think GLITTER did better than that.

But anyway, here is the "Nottie" in case you were wondering. Put her next to Paris, and I know who I'd rather spend time with.
