And describe why. I have a pretty high threshold for "disturbing" and not much gets to me, but I have to say, A Serbian Film is by far THE most disturbing movie I've ever seen. It's the kind of movie that, if you enjoy it because of it's brutality, it makes you seriously wonder if that's a good thing or a bad thing. LOL I'm also trying to compile a list of them to watch and review, so your suggestions will be very helpful and much appreciated! :)

For some reason the movie, "Silent Hill" disturbed me and I was sorry I watched it. The stuff of nightmares :))

I agree. :O Silent Hill was terrifying! LOL If you liked it, though, you'd probably really enjoy The Void. :D If you haven't seen it yet, IT'S AWESOME! Definitely not one you wanna watch solo, though.

One of them: "Dogville" directed by Lars Von Trier (with Nicole Kidman in the main role).

The most disturbing movie I ever saw was called The Vanishing and it's on YouTube. After I saw it, I thought about it for days. It was redone in English but I liked the original. It has English subtitles.

That would have to be "Threads". It was a made for tv movie in the UK, around 1984 or so I think. It was a pretty disturbing depiction of the lead up and aftermath of a nuclear war. Bleak, dark and just left me thinking for days about it.

I don't bother to watch overly disturbing movies anyway. But then again, I can withstand disturbing content however there are some movies out there that I would never watch. Ever. But I know which movies to avoid watching if you don't want to have nightmares. If you want to know what's the movie about, I suggest reading the Wikipedia. 1. Salo' (120 days of sodom) 2. Nekromantik 3. Human Centipede 4. Cannibal Holocaust 5. Ichi the Killer 6. A Clockwork Orange

I think The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the most disturbing movie that I had watched.

The most disturbing movie for me may be Hostel. I think it is more than a horror movie. It can be happened in the reality. Some people are just so sick to torture others. I feel very uncomfortable to watch this movie and this is why I don't want to watch its series.

Most disturbing movies are mostly from Europe and Asia, I watch few particularly grouse but don't want to someone can't sleep for nights, because that I recommend some "soft" disturbing for start. Martyrs (2008) from France is a very disturbing movie, it's not for everybody, has many scenes of torture and disturbing violence. Very hard to watch! Second is Frontier's (2007) has some brutal scenes and very intense. And my favorite movie is Eraserhead from David Lynch, has few versions, I watch all but just one is good to understand a movie. The atmosphere in a film is scary. Masterpiece!
