1. Hunger (2008)

I was so stunned after watching this. A brilliant piece of film making with an engaging script. Took me a while to actually come to terms with the fact that it is based on a true story.

2. Eden Lake (2008)

Recent horror films have been pretty lousy but this one is something else. Even though it has a basic plot, the small events make it thrilling. I found it hard to watch most of it.

3. Third Star (2010)

It's phenomenal how something can be so heart warming and heart breaking at the same time. It's one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen with an amazing cast. I knew that it wouldn't have a happy ending but nothing really prepares you for it.

4. American History X (1998)

I think the shock factor is more to do with the Neo-Nazi concept. That and the head being stomped on the curb...

5. An American Crime (2007)

It was hard to watch this knowing it was based on a true story. Ellen Page gives a phenomenal performance that is truly heartbreaking.

6. Requiem for a Dream (2000)

For the majority of the film, I'm perfectly fine. It doesn't show anything that truly surprises me but it was in the last five minutes that my jaw dropped.

7. I'm Here (2010)

I was shocked since I never thought I could feel so much from a thirty minute long movie. You feel for the characters despite the short running time. It's such a lovely movie.

liked the idea of the list, wished it was bit longer though :)
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 6 12:17
I recommend to add "Tideland", "May", "Needle", "Suicide club".
The most shocking one was - An American Crime. It's a great movie, but after it you just wish you wouldn't have seen it. :) great list.

The really shocking part about An American Crime is the fact that the movie is actually a toned down version of what happened. The really horrible parts were left out.

Great list, i think You should add "Funny games" too.
Posted: 2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 7 10:04
Unfortunately 'Funny Games' didn't shock me... I'm not easily shocked.

That scene in American History X you talking about is probably the most disturbing I saw.

Good list - but no list of shockers is complete without A Serbian Film
