I’d have to go with MOTHER’S DAY…that 1980s I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE-like “horror” film…it was disgusting
@ Hastapura – that’s what I thought it was going to be like. I’ll watch it eventually. More than likely by myself since I cannot subject more people to it. I’m not in any kind of hurry though.
And I love The Piano Teacher. I believe I’ve seen it three times. The first two were back to back.
I’m not kidding at all.
Not sickest, but one of the most disturbing – A Short Film About Killing . But it was a sort of some existential pain, not disturbing in a sense of blood/raping/organs/whatnot. Simply, one of the most painful films i’ve seen.
oh and the episode about incestuos relation from Dekalog (in that regard La Luna by Bertolucci, too) i literally threw up :p also, The Second Circle by Sokurov, not any single scene of violence, but one can feel smell of the death and decay during entire film.
The Second Circle is a good one.
Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.
Almost like a documentary in its chronicle of a cold and remorseless killer. Chilling.
Last Exit to Brooklyn. It’s not the most extreme film I’ve seen but it is the most disturbing.
I’ve had an interest in the most depraved, sick shit I could find for as long as I can remember. I’ve seen all the well knowns (Cannibal Holocaust, Salo, Sweet Movie, A Serbian Film, Martyrs), the lesser-knowns (Combat Shock, A Flower of Flesh and Blood, Entrails of a Virgin/Beautiful Woman, Men Behind the Sun, Visitor Q), the lesser-lesser-knowns (Tumbling Doll of Flesh, Angst, Aftermath, Schramm, Kichiku dai enkai), and I’ve been distracted by some terrible films that are closer to being hilarious than shocking (Hostel, Saw series, The Human Centipede, Grotesque, August Underground series, Slaughtered Vomit Dolls or any Lucifer Valentine movie), but nothing prepared me for the moral bankruptcy in Forced Entry (1973). Fuck that movie.
It’s the editing in of real war footage during explicit rape scenes that was just too fucking evil for me.
Also there’s the Traces of Death series that wasn’t too pleasant of a watch for my 13 year old self, but that feels like it just doesn’t fit with this kind of discussion.
Now I’m wondering if I really should post this as it could result in people keeping their distance from me, hah. Oh well.
I killed the thread. :(
i think they’re busy hunting down these films they’d never heard of. u WON the thread xD
what no gummo? That made me throw up and give up on humanity
I’m surprised nobody mentioned Begotten.
When I saw the first scene, I thought to myself “This movie is going to rape my brain or something.” Although it was so continuously sick that it kind of got boring until the end, I still think it’s overall interesting and worth watching… Anyone else seen Begotten?
i have heard of it. i tried watching it once. i didn’t make it :\
Because it was sick or because it was boring? (I’d understand either one of the reasons, but I’m still curious :))
I’ve seen the first 40 minutes of Begotten, I actually found it kind of boring and stopped it because I had to go somewhere, but I would like to try watching it again.
I second Tumbling Doll of Flesh as the sickest film I have seen, though Forced Entry and the other Avon 7 grindhouse films aren’t far behind (Story of Prunella, Femmes de Sade, Long Jeanne Silver.)
Come and See 1985 Elem Klimov
Nanami The Inferno of First Love 1968 Susumu Hani scripted by Shuji Terayama (I still haven’t seen Emperor Tomato Ketchup but some people down right detest the child sexuality in that…)
Some nice stuff Daniel..
Yeah Begotten is sick sick stuff.
But the Winner is..
Pig-Chicken Suicide 1981 Yoshihiko Matsui
i knew i had seen it on youtube. i think it was a mixture of apprehension and boredom that made me give up. i don’t have the strongest stomach for gory stuff :\ i love ichi the killer and dead alive but those are funny
Taxidermia (http://mubi.com/films/taxidermia) can be both beautifully shot and utterly grotesque at the same time. If that’s your thing, it’s a must see!
(off topic: long-time lurker… first post! yay!)
Ugh, I can’t stand Ichi.
Good call on Taxidermia. It’s definitely one that can go either way. The first half was great, but then got to be too much for me.
The Human Centipede. Ugh.
Yea I’m not such of a Begotten fan myself I don’t know what Ray Carney see’s in it but he put me on to it.
I’d like to see Begotten just because I liked Shadow of the Vampire. I know it’s not at all the same, but I’d just like to.
it’s right there tommy ^ and ‘ugh, i can’t stand ichi!?!’ he’s like japanese batman! :’(
Oh I didn’t know it was the whole thing. I saw it around before, I’m even pretty sure I have it bookmarked as well. Just haven’t gotten around to it.
Ichi is just too wild for me. I could barely get through it.
yeah i can understand that. lol
I just thought of another one. Basically it’s the ending of the film that is the hard part for me to watch and that is The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover. You know when the wife is aiming the gun at her husband and forcing him to eat her lover. It’s a little bit hard to stomach.
Ah, yes, Begotten is a great movie! I remember during my first viewing of that being pretty creeped out.
Emperor Tomato Ketchup is just good, I wouldn’t call it that shocking really; or at least that was not my reason for watching it. That Shūji Terayama is a badass.
Pig-Chicken Suicide looks incredible! The director edited Crazy Thunder Road too. Promising! :)
Thanks for mentioning that.
LOL@Ruby. This isn’t the kind of thread I want to win. :(
Miike’s IMPRINT or Von Trier’s ANTICHRIST
