    Default 25 Movies that will destroy your faith in humanity

    http://www.buzzfeed.com/louispeitzma...th-in-humanity

    Has anyone ever seen any of these that they would recommend? For some reason, I am really intrigued.

    One fucked up movie that I can name that isn't on this list is "The Box". That movie where you can push a button for a million dollars but someone somewhere in the world dies. That ending is messed up, simply because it shows a family being devastated in a way that most movies don't.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    Srpski Film/A Serbian Film. I haven't actually watched it and I never will. I have quite a few friends who have, and they have said it's awful and disgusting - not only the content, but how this guy inherited dirty money from his parents, went abroad for years, and then came back to make a film depicting his fellow countrymen as the lowest slime possible.

    I might also add Monster to this list.

    Oh, and The Woman sounds based on a true story... that Austrian dude who kidnapped his pregnant daughter and locked her in his basement for years... she gave birth and didn't escape for like 16 years.

    I agree with what Llamas friends have to say about Serbian Movie. It's in that list for obvious reasons. There was a thread on here somewhere dedicated to that movie, that's the only reason I watched it back then I think.

    If I would recommend any of these movies, it's gotta be Requiem for a Dream. From the movies I've seen in that list, this one probably hold the right balance between being a good movie and sickness.

    I have seen a number of these films (I went through a phase - kinda tempted to take it back up after seeing this article)

    120 Days of Sodom
    Cannibal Holocaust
    A Serbian Film
    I Spit on Your Grave
    Funny Games
    Requiem for a Dream
    Antichrist

    A Serbian Film was probably the most gruesome. Funny Games was really good. Antichrist was beautifully made. I Spit on Your Grave is a favourite of mine (girl power fuck yeah). Requiem for a Dream was quite depressing, but very good. Cannibal Holocaust was quite gruesome, but I was mostly upset at the animal killings in it (which were real btw). 120 Days of Sodom, pretty messed up also.

    From what i've read A Serbian film sounds like glorified child porn.

    Salò annoys me to no end as well; it's just a shitty exploitation film from the 70s that people attempt to give legitimacy to by claiming its a social commentary on consumer culture and fascism. Its not: a pervy director wanted to simulate teens eating fecies; that's as deep as it gets.

    A few of those movies I don't really feel belong on there: Old Boy, I Saw the Devil and House of Sound and Fog in particular are all really well made dramas/thrillers - i'd recommend anybody see them. The subject matter is certainly very tough, but its not handled in an exploitative manner.

    This is basically what the creators of A Serbian Film said - it's commentary on how the Serbian government is fucking everyone. If that's really what it's about, there are certainly better ways to tell that. I can't approve of children acting in a movie in which their characters are raped in the film.

    I just went to imdb to see what the discussions are like... someone actually posted to ask if she could show this film to her 9-and-10-year-old sons... they've seen Scream and The Shining, so it should be okay, right? Fucking idiot.

    For some reason I'll never watch Se7en again. Great movie, but I've only seen it twice and it just makes me grumpy and down. It's not even close to the most sickening movie around, it's just about my limit.

    I love the premise, though the movie basically sucked as I recall. Still, it's a great thought experiment and I enjoy discussing with people whether they'd do it or not. I generally find people say they wouldn't do it and then I crack their confidence to varying degrees. Because under the right circumstances we'd all press it. Hell, I'd barely hesitate and I'm a good person (not my opinion, I simply fit society's general concept of what a good person is).

    I've seen...

    - Dancer in the Dark
    - Requiem for a Dream
    - Oldboy
    - Deliverance
    - Irreversible
    - The Mist
    - Happiness

    Out of the those that I've seen, they either aren't particularly disturbing, or they're so clearly aiming for shock value that it hardens your stomach and ruins the impact. A few of them are legitimately depressing, but that's it. Happiness has some 'squick' value, but it's too hilarious to be truly disturbing. Deliverance and The Mist are just straight-up good movies, and not disturbing in the least.

    Now, to recommend some movies as bad or worse than anything on that list (at least, out of the ones I've seen)

    - "Bad Boy Bubby" opens with a retarded man being raped by his grossly obese mother. It's the least disturbing movie out of the ones I list, because it's genuinely funny and heartwarming at times. Let that serve as a benchmark for the following.

    - "Snowtown" is an excellently made movie, and it's the only excellent movie I warn my friends to never, ever watch. It's possibly the only movie I've ever seen to negatively affect my life. You will honestly live a happier life if you've never seen it. Snowtown should be on that list.

    - "The Boys" is a slow, dull movie, for the most part. If just go you watch it, you'll find it boring and drawn-out, although you'll probably appreciate David Wenham's performance as a sociopathic "regular guy". If you watch it knowing the details of the murder it was based on (as many Australians do), it will fucking horrify you, and it will make you fear your neighbours.

    - "Savior" is worth a mention. The hero is a spree-shooting terrorist mercenary who snipes children for the Serbs. It can only get worse from there.

    - "The Divide" is a fairly entertaining movie, although it becomes pretty grueling to watch. If they think 'The Mist' was a harsh indictment of human nature and mob culture, 'The Divide' is a billion times worse.

    - "Come And See" is a movie I've only heard of in hushed whispers and rumours. It's supposedly the most disturbing movie ever made. It supposedly makes 'Serbian Film' and 'Salo' look like teenagers clumsily trying to shock people by shouting 'FAG' on the internet. I can't personally vouch for whether or not it lives up to its reputation, but I seriously wouldn't recommend trying to find this movie.

    I have that one downloaded and ready to watch as soon as I get around to it/decide to. But knowing the history of the Bosnian war, I think I'm ready for that shit...
