what’s a good fucked up movie?

  1. I've never seen the movie but the book is one of the funniest novels I've ever read (many times over). Here's an excerpt

  2. The BBC had an earlier nuclear apocaplypse film from 1966 called The War Game which they never aired as being to horrific for broadcast by the standards of that day, but it still a packs a serious punch if you care to watch it (

  3. When I was 9, we moved into a house. The previous tenants had left some vhs tapes (this was '98) and one was labelled the wizard of oz. So we put it in to watch while my mom went and did whatever mom did back then. Turns out, they had taped over wizard of oz with threads. I watched it with my 8 year old sister and it totally fucked us up. I couldn't understand why mankind would have such horrible things that could cause such horrible pain, it baffled me and I'm pretty sure that it is my first recollection of true anxiety.

  4. This is a movie that scared the absolute shit out of me. Like I was legitimately terrified. And to think the Sword of Damocles hangs over our head to this day. I don’t even think I could bring myself to watch it twice, especially today when that shit it back on the table.

  5. This movie, I swear is the most realistic depiction of what a nuclear apocalypse will cause. EVERYONE FUCKING LOSES

  6. The original is great. Cube2 - hypercube, Cube zero and the Japanese remake aren't nearly as good.

  7. My mom (not horror enthusiast at all) rented this thinking it was something like Peter Pan. We watched it together. It was… messed up….

  8. The man who wrote it, Hubert Selby, Jr., also wrote Last Exit to Brooklyn which was also a fine example of a fucked up whirlwind.

  9. Trainspotting is a great movie, and I enjoyed the second one too. But in terms of fucked-upness The Acid House is along similar lines but next level.

  10. Unbelievable that thus is so low. Tilda Swinton is phenomenal in it. She really nailed the part of 'person in close contact with Ezra Miller'

  11. You Were Never Really Here is another excellent, equally heavy movie by Lynne Ramsay. Joaquin Phoenix is a veteran with PTSD who works as a mercenary that's hired to track down a young girl from a human trafficking network used by politicians/the wealthy, it's definitely worth a watch if you liked Kevin.

  12. Snowtown. It's a depiction of one of the most prolific serial killers in Australian history. It's very visceral. It all feels very real when you watch it.

  13. Should be top, I never knew a movie could be traumatizing until I saw this movie. Straight puts you in a bad mood. Should have a warning on it. It’s not even the most brutal stuff I’ve seen, it just makes it so horrifyingly real, like this honest to god happened and most got away with it.

  14. So many anti war films aren't really anti war. They glorify aspects a lot of it and push a message of "it was hell but also kinda awesome". Come And See is truly fucking horrific and really just shows the terror and complete loss of humanity. It's a descent into hell and imo the best movie about war ever made.

  15. I remember telling my husband I wanted to watch a comedy or something light and he put this movie on. Cannibals are light hearted, right?

  16. Dude, the part where they catch the mom and her kid in the truck cage messed me up. Made me wonder what I’d do if it were me and my kid, and I’d probably put my kid down before we get back to the farm. It’s the best call in that scenario. Just the bleakest possible outcomes from start to finish with that film

  17. KIDS First movie I ever thought: this is an amazing film and I wish I’d never seen it. Just a year or two before its release “Casper” was roaming the halls of our little high school in the Poconos asking for spare change to catch a train to NYC - basically running away from home after, I assume, his parents dragged him to the country to avoid, well… We all gave him our money and only now do I realize we should all go to hell for it. RIP Justin pierce

  18. I haven’t seen anyone say “night crawler” yet. This movie is straight up how a person with no empathy uses media desire for gore to enrich himself and his lack of emotion regarding people is really fucking creepy

  19. Jake Gyllenhaal is very good at doing fake sociopath charisma. He brought a similar quality when he played Mysterio in the spider man film.

  20. I worked for a local TV station in Alabama for about 6 years. We had a very large viewing area with diverse cities on all sides, about 350 miles wide. We had a stringer that would call us to sell stories or coverage of stuff we could not make it out to in time.

  21. Dean Stockwell lip syncing to Roy Orbison’s “In Dreams” using a drop light as a microphone was chilling. “You’re so FUCKING suave!!”

  22. Blue Velvet is hands down my favorite Lynch film, and feels almost like his magnum opus, even more so than Mulholland Dr / Inland Empire. It is the perfect representation of Lynch's balance between good and evil, the light and dark, and the ugly and beautiful. The first scene really tells it all, with its picturesque suburban neighborhood only to zoom into the grass to see all the worms and dirt below the surface. I find it to be his creepiest film as well, despite all the dreaminess of it all, human beings are truly the scariest thing on this planet. And yet at the same time, human beings are some of the most beautiful and loving things to exist.

  23. X rated wasn't what it is today. The ratings system had all of the ratings copyrighted, except X. The porn industry jumped on it and started using it. A normal, not pornographic film getting an X rating (Fritz, Clockwork Orange, etc) is equivalent to an NC-17 rating today.

  24. I will always respond to a Dear Zachary recommendation. It is a great doc, it's so well made, but my one single watch will be the only time I will ever watch it. It made me sore physically, from the crying, tension and anger and I still highly highly recommend it. People often list Schindler's List as a one time watch movie and I really enjoy the movie and watch it every couple of years, but Dear Zachary was a one time watch.

  25. My dad died very suddenly when I was 11, and my mom was diagnosed with cancer a year after that. I remember going to the grocery store with her one day, and in the bargain DVD bin they had Deer Hunter. I asked my mom if I could get it, because it had Robert de Niro in it and I knew he was a good actor lol. She must've not even looked at the damn thing, because no way should she have let her 12 year old see that. Definitely fucked me up, but strangely it sort of helped me come to grips with what happened with my dad and my acceptance of what would eventually happen to my mom. I was dealing with emotions that I didn't really know how to process at that point, and I think it helped me understand grief/loss a little better.

  26. My GF randomly brought it up. Pulled up a trailer and thought it looked stupid but was down to check it out anyway.

  27. God the part where that prostitute is stumbling through his apartment and finds all this gruesome shit is so disturbing, but then it's fucking hilarious when Christian Bale chases her out butt-ass naked wielding a chainsaw and only wearing running shoes.

  28. I was in a really weird place when I decided to watch this. It felt like a fever dream. I have no idea if I loved it or hated it. Haven't watched again.

  29. I was so deeply uncomfortable watching this movie that I started laughing involuntarily. Creeped my partner out so much that the reaction was referenced during the break up shortly thereafter.

  30. Netflix once recommended Hard Candy to me because I liked Juno. I’d already seen it (I was intrigued because of Page and decided to tune in) so I knew it was NOT a good recommendation but I feel bad for anyone who turned it on based on the suggestion. I hope Netflix has fixed their recommendation algorithms.

  31. This is the only film I have ever had to stop watching and take a break from. And very nearly couldn’t put it back on…. It that was the fire extinguisher scene at the start that did it. Glad I persevered as it’s an amazing film.

  32. Yes. This is one of the very few movies that I can’t ever imagine watching again. I saw it at least 20 years ago and still feel the slime it left on my soul.

  33. Not a horror movie like most of the other suggestions here, but I watched Schindler’s List in my last year of high school and it really fucked me up. That scene where the Nazi commandant is taking potshots at prisoners still disturbs me…

  34. We didn’t watch Schindler’s List but my history teacher read “Was God on Vacation?” to us in 9th grade and it was harrowing. I’ve never seen a group of 14 year olds more quiet and focused on their teacher in my life. It was profound, probably the only time in any class where every kid was paying attention and feeling the same way as everybody else in the room. I believe it took her a whole week to get through the book, and she was hoarse by the end. Totally worth it, from her perspective, I’m sure.

  35. How art thou, thou globby bottle of cheap, stinking chip oil? Come and get one in the yarbles, if you’ve got any yarbles, you eunuch jelly thou.

  36. I'm currently trying to read the book. I didn't know the author was a linguist and made up all those unusual words and phrases...I just assumed people spoke like that in parts of the U.K. lol. It's a bit of a tough read because I have to keep checking a glossary to remember what the words mean. The books a little more fucked up then the movie. I'm enjoying it though.

  37. Took a girl on a first date to see this movie, not knowing anything about it but we both like sci-fi. We left - there was no second date.

  38. I saw the original as a child and it fucked me up so bad. It made me sick when the rabbit got in the throat snare and was bleeding and getting swarmed by flies.

  39. Absolutely stunning performance by Willem DaFoe. The man’s always done incredible work, yet this was a whole different level. Those long takes with pure dialogue & he nails every syllable, every facial expression, bam bam BAM. Brilliant! Total pro!

  40. The Mist. It's not just a horror movie, it's also an excellent exposition of fanaticism taken to extremes, along with some political criticism and a totally heartbreaking ending.

  41. I loved that movie. The stiffness in the air that comes from all the awkward forced interactions between the characters leaves you squirming throughout the entire movie in a good way.

  42. Requiem of a dream. Feels like a scare them straight movie for the worst case scenario drug user

  43. Everyone always talk about the arm or ass to ass. For me, Ellen Burstyn's monologue is fucking devastating and one of my favorite pieces of acting.

  44. I'm going to go with Teeth. It's not a box office AAA quality movie but whew is it fucked up and you won't forget some of the scenes

  45. Watched this in college with a bunch of friends. All of us girls were laughing our heads off. The boys were very uncomfortable.

  46. Happiness by Todd Solondz. One of my favorite movies that I don't talk to anyone about because I know if they've seen it, they'll be judging me 😬

  47. Imprint. Takashi Miike. Made for masters of horror but never aired because it was too graphic and disturbing. Also Audition and Ichi the killer.

  48. After watching the killing of a sacred deer i sat back in my chair and asked myself wtf i just watched.
