How did salo, caligula and clockwork orange not make this list????
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Aug 30 21:21
although bring me the head of alfredo garcia is a fantastic film, i don't think it could be considered extreme.

these are more extreme

exploitation at its best

How 'bout: Rob Zombie's Firefly Family flicks? Jackson's BAD TASTE and BRAINDEAD? Lucio Fulci's zombie movies? The first two HELLRAISERs? HOSTELs? OLDBOY? STORY OF RICKY? TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 (and TCM: THE BEGINNING)? And are Argento, Cronenberg and Romero perhaps too mainstream for this list?

Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Mar 18 2:15

Oh, and BAISE MOI?

Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Dec 3 0:40
Nightthing,

Compared to a lot of the films on this list (i.e. Anatomy of Hell, Begotten, Aftermath), Hostel and Devil's Rejects should be rated G.

Oh, and it's laughable that you would even think to put TCM: The Beginning on this list. It's obvious you don't undersstand the tone of half of these films.
Posted: 4 years, 4 months ago at Dec 14 23:37
Oooh. I'll look to this for recommendations in the future, because there are some I've actually not heard of.
Posted: 4 years, 2 months ago at Feb 8 13:30
"snuff movies", oh god! I loved the list but I'm too
sensible to watch those movies
Posted: 4 years ago at Mar 25 16:43
Lists like this are why we need a better way to keep track of our favorite lists. Very nicely done!
Posted: 4 years ago at Mar 27 2:50
Heya, I linked this in my Pinky Violence Films list. A few crossover films and similarly whacked out content :D

Also stumbled across a couple things on IMDB you might want to add: the Woman in a Box series and something called Female Prisoner: Cage.

@insektmute: Thanks for the link and suggestions. I added them to the list. I had heard of Female Prisoner: Cage but not the Woman in a Box series. Thanks for the info. I've also been working on a list called "Pinku Eiga" for a little while now (it's still set to 'private' at the moment, though). It'll consist of standard pinku, pinky violence and roman porno films. I'll put a link to your list on there too.
Posted: 4 years ago at Mar 31 6:31
WOW!!! Very nice list!
Posted: 4 years ago at Apr 5 14:12
@DeathWish: Indeed, a lot of the Japanese films on this list are from the "Pinky Violence" sub-genre which feature many of the same themes as the All Night Long series.
Posted: 4 years ago at Apr 5 21:44
@Hexenkult: Lemme know if you need any help researching stuff for the pink eiga list. That sucker's gonna get waaaaaaay big.

@DeathWish: Similar themes, but there is plenty of PV stuff that doesn't go too far, Lady Snowblood and Female Demon Ohyaku being two notable (and very good) examples.

I'm not into exploitation-hardcore films and don't watch as many disturbing films as I like to, but I would consider Neil Jordan's "The Butcher Boy" to be fairly graphic. It's about an adolescent Schizophrenic Irish boy's repression of feeling guilty at his mom's suicide, sadistically lashing out at the person he deems responsible. For more information so you can decide if it fits the criteria of your list, just mail me.

wow respekt, muss ja ewig gedauert haben die Liste zu erstellen. Dafür vote ich gern.

love it!

I agree with NIGHTTHING that Dead Alive/ Brain Dead deserves a place on this list. Though it can not be categorized as seriously disturbing because of it's camp status, it is arguably the goriest film of all time and has many wince-worthy moments.

Other Suggestions-

Thirst, by Chan-Woo Park

Hard Candy

Great list :) Some very obscure ones tucked away in there...

If anyone wants to read a good book about these types of disturbing and controversial/provocative films check out BEYOND THE DARKNESS: Cult, Horror, And Extreme Cinema by Phil Russell. Essential read!
