Disturbia as a genre is not everyone’s cup of tea. A mix of psychedelic, horror, trance, and thrill is what makes disturbia one of a kind genus. For the strong-hearted movie buffs, this could be an interesting variety to add to their bucket list, while the mush diggers can easily skip them. This genre surely calls for a ‘Caution, watch at your own risk!’ warning.
Here’s a list of top 5 disturbing movies ever made in the history of world cinema!
A 108 minutes movie, it is told in four chapters with a prologue and an epilogue. The story is about a couple whose son dies while they were having sex in the next room. To overcome the grief and seek solace they return back to the cabin where they had holidayed last summer with their son and start indulging in violent sexual behavior and self-molestation. The movie is filled with explicit sexual content that can leave you nauseated.
Salo or 120 days of Sodom is a movie of four Nazi-Fascist members of government who kidnap a group of 18 young men and women. They are held in captive and tortured mentally, emotionally and physically. Sexual depravity, voyeurism, ghastly murders, and carnage is what makes Salo, one of the roughest films. It is rumored that some of the scenes have even been conducted in reality while shooting the film!
After horrific road accidents, a road sweeper decides to bring home, a full corpse, one evening for the enjoyment of himself and his wife. What follows after is the wife preferring the corpse over the husband that eventually turns into obsession. This gory and perverse movie is a benchmark for portraying necrophilia. The end, in particular, is incredibly sick and can make one’s stomach churn.
4) Human Centipede
This one is by far the sickest movie ever made. A deranged scientist kidnaps three tourists who were on a road trip and mutilates them. He then brings to life his sick lifetime fantasy of creating a human centipede of the trio by removing their teeth, ripping out their knee caps and stitching their mouths to each others’ rectum. As if this wasn’t it, the scenes of the scientist training the centipede as dogs can make you skip your meal for at least a day or two!
5) A Serbian Film
Cinema at its extreme. Yes, that’s what ‘A Serbian film’ is deemed as! A heady mixture of dark, monstrous rapes, pedophilia, extreme sexual violence, it is without a doubt a regret to watch this film. The story revolves around an aging porn star Milo who wishes to start afresh by signing an art film. Soon he realizes that the movie is nowhere close to being an art film and is actually a sick snuff film of pedophilia, necrophilia, and torture. Drugged and trapped, Milo finds it too late to back out.
6) In My Skin
A French film, In My Skin, mixes the genre of horror and brutality. It starts off with the female lead getting fascinated by her own skin. She eventually becomes so obsessed that she starts inflicting herself with wounds and cuts her flesh with knives, scissors and other household objects. Soon, her self-mutilation places her in mortal danger. The ones who’ve managed to sit through this gruesome drama have described it as an ‘Over the edge, disturbing and thought provoking film.
7) I Spit On Your Grave
If one could use sickening, sadistic, cynical, disgusting, depressing, maddening, dirty and eternally worthless in one sentence, it would only be to describe this movie. Jennifer, a writer, rents an isolated cabin in the woods so that she can work on her latest novel. The peace is soon shattered by a gang of miscreants who rape and torture her, then leave her for dead. But she returns for vengeance, trapping the men one by one. Jennifer inflicts pain on her attackers with a ferocity that surpasses her own suffering.
