Totally Fucked Up: Films That Disturb and Offend

Salo is a raw tale of sadistic immorality and sexual perversion. But really, what the hell do you expect? It's a faithful movie adaption of the Marquis De Sade's controversially classic novel of the same name, that was burned and banned for hundreds of years. But Salo does say a lot about the horrors of fascism and bourgeois decadence, so it's not pornographic just for the hell of it.

This movie is definitely on the inflammatory and traumatizing side of things. In fact, Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered before Salo was even released and luckily did not witness the relentless backlash and controversies surrounding the movie.

Cannibal Holocaust- Yuck gross and eeww.

It's a super disgusting fever dream nightmare that demonizes indigenous people as enraged and senseless cannibals. There's tons of gore, the most nasty part being the scene where a turtle gets graphically murdered and eaten. I felt the bile rise up in my throat as I watched. Just a warning- don't watch this if you're eating, just ate, or ever plan to eat ever again.

From the bizarre director Takashi Miike, we get a warped, twisted gore overload of a mob film that would make even the most psychotic pervo sick to their stomach. The main character even cuts his own tongue off and enjoys masochistic beatings. Ichi the Killer is sex and violence personified, graphic and offensive af.

Audition (2000)



Another Takashi Miike flick. I actually did not find this film disturbing at all and I was like "what the hell do people get all worked up over this for?" But then came the last 30 minutes. Totally weird. Anyways, Audition is not really that sickening, but that's just my opinion.

Equus (1977)



This is a super underrated film with brilliant acting. It's very screwed up though because it's about a young man's strange sexual obsession with horses and his spiral into psychosis. This one's more psychologically disturbing and challenging.

This Dutch classic is far from your average love story. It's really sexually explicit, with full frontal shots of Rutger Hauer's dong (fantastic lol), and has tons of vomit, blood, maggots and shit and a super depressing ending.

Luis Bunuel's short masterpiece is mostly known for its infamous shot of an eyeball being sliced open with a razor blade, but it has tons of other surreal and repulsive visuals that also stun and shock.

When I first saw this film, I didn't know what to make of it. I still don't. The only way I can describe it- a psychedelic trip through hell. It's complex and aesthetically magnificent, but it might be off-putting to people who can't handle nudity, violence and weird sth.

A bizarre, bloody, desert hallucination-like freakshow about a master gunfighter who destroys all his rivals. I seriously love Alejandro Jodorowsky he goes ALL OUT.

Antichrist (2009)


Antichrist is visually stunning, but actually pretty boring. Until it starts getting really gory. But watching Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg having sex is disturbing enough already.

Irreversible (2002)



Gaspar Noe's sexually depraved flick is most well known for its disgusting half hour rape scene where Monica Belluci's character is brutally violated and beaten beyond belief. Not only that, but there is a super sick continuous shot of a guy's skull being bashed in. You will be dead inside after watching this movie soo good luck...
Severin Severin's rating:
People who added this item 800 Average listal rating (448 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.3



This psychedelic visual feast for the eyes is much more than just something to trip to. It's a vile, offensive nightmare of drugs, death and incest. Gasper Noe is a fucked up dude sure but an amazing director. The cinematography in this movie is stunning beyond belief!

Naked Lunch (1992)



When I first watched Naked Lunch, I had no idea what to expect. I was just bored and wanted to watch any random movie. Next thing I knew, I was disgusted but hooked. It horrified me though because I'm AFRAID OF INSECTS and there are some really gross scenes of bug creature thingys being tortured and devouring people like what in actual fuck...Anyways David Cronenberg movies are really disturbing and awesome and this is one of his best.

Videodrome (1983)



I love David Cronenberg lol I'm srs. And this film is probably THE best work of his. It's an extremely sadomascochistic barf bag of a cinematic experience that features a slutty Debbie Harry and an arrogant James Woods being dragged into a strange psychosexual murderfest of a situation like I can't explain just watch this fucking movie now.

Harvey Keitel gives an amazing perfomance as an anger crazed, drug addicted, corrupt asshole of a cop investigating the brutal rape of a young nun. Not for the faint of heart or mind.

The Devils (1971)




For some dumb reason, I decided to watch The Devils at night. I couldn't sleep because I was so revulsed by what I'd just seen. A sacrilegious, bloody, amazing nightmare tale of sexually repressed nuns who have a priest massacred for their delusions.

Repulsion (1965)



Roman Polanski's greatest 60s film features the gorgeous Catherine Deneuve as she descends into madness, misandry and murder when left home alone. It's psychologically disturbing and unforgettable.

This rare documentary is so unseen, mostly because it's been banned in America and many other countries because it reveals the true ugly face of the U.S.A. The Killing of America is more than just entertainment, it's a harsh look at American mass murderers, serial killers, assassins, criminals and other psychos who run loose in the country. It has real snuff footage of death and violence. After seeing a film like this you think, is there really any hope for us in this doomed violent world? How fucked up are Americans amirite lol?

Super controversial and freaky, this flick has some real death scenes and some fake ones, but those are still creepy too. Basically if you're obsessed with death you will love this movie because it's morbid. 2 morbid.

A truly fucked up story about a Serbian porn star who looks like David Spade. The guy ends up doing really sick shit after being manipulated and drugged, and he destroys his whole family in an unthinkably sickening manner.
Severin Severin's rating:



A gross low budget film about white trash gone mad. It's loosely based on real life serial killer partners Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole. Anyways I felt like I needed a bath after I watched this movie it's just SO white trash omg!

Watching this made me sick. Lilya 4Ever is a sad, miserable film about a young girl reduced to prostitution after being abandoned by her own mother and abused by every asshole around her. Very difficult to get through without crying tears of blood.

Eraserhead (1978)



Personally, I would say Eraserhead disturbs me the most out of all these movies. It's repugnant and unnerving and just a really troubling viewing experience. David Lynch is a masterful director and is great at making viewers uncomfortable, and he definitely succeeds with this surreal tale about a strange man living in an industrial hell of a world. The deformed, bile spewing "baby" is the worst part.
Severin Severin's rating:
People who added this item 2304 Average listal rating (1429 ratings) 7.8 IMDB Rating 7.8
Blue Velvet (1986)



David Lynch's movies are such a mindfuck. And Blue Velvet fucks you right in the ass with it's over the top weirdness. Seriously, what kind of loon dreamed up the script? Dennis Hopper gives an awesome perfomance as perv psycho Frank Booth.

The Wall soo deep, not even joking, it def forces you think about the existential emptiness of life. Like yeah it could have been v pretentious if it wasn't handled so well. Pink Floyd is my one of my fave bands and I love how the music and visuals blend smoothly to create a masterpiece that centers around messed up subject matter and startling imagery.

This film is edge-of-the-seat intense. Leatherface is probably one of the scariest slasher villain of all time. Like who else hangs human beings up on meat hooks and cuts off their faces and uses them as flesh masks? Not many ppl (unless you're Ed Gein lol). Leatherface's whole family of inbred psychotic cannibal hicks is creepy too. Whenever I hear the sound of a chainsaw now I'm like "omg Leatherface is gonna fuck me up helP."

Dead Ringers (1988)



Super bizarre Cronenberg movie about a pair of twin gynecologist bros who lose their shit slowly and eventually spin out of control. Kind of reminds me of Persona, but 20 times more disturbing. Jeremy Irons is a creepy looking dude and he gives a fantastic performance btw.

Crash (1996)



Another Croneberg film, this one being super perverted ack. It's about people who have a fetish for car accidents no lie man these fuckers are WACK. Watch it if you have a dirty, filthy mind. And I'm guessing you do if you're looking at a list like this ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Caligula (1979)






I thirst watched this for Malcolm McDowell, and I'm crzy about Ancient Roman history but I was like umm wtf is this a sadistic gore porn for sickos?? Gross. But I like how the film showed the depravity of the Romans and of the emperor Caligula especially, who was a sick dude who banged his own sister and maybe even his own horse lol. The cinematography and set design is great though, but the editing sucks shit lmao anyways watch it if you wanna see decadent Roman orgies (u perv!) or Malcolm McD's D.

Rape, murder and revenge, not exactly the best topics to make a movie on. But seriously, the rape scene was agonizingly long and excruciating. It makes the revenge all the more satisfying though because those dickhead rapists deserved to die painfully.

Freaks (1932)



Freaks is awesome because director Tod Browning (who also made Dracula with Bela Lugosi) casted people with actual disabilities. People with deformed skulls, amputees and the limbless, little people, hirsute women, conjoined twins, contortionists, strongmen, you name it, this film's got it. And it puts them on display as "freaks," which is so primitive ugh but it's one of the only movies I can think of that actually shows differently abled people, which is sad when you think about it.

Jeff Goldblum plays a brilliant scientist on the verge of a revolutionary discovery that transports objects to other places. But when he tries to test the machine on himself, shit gets fucked. Why? There was a fucking fly in there!! He begins to morph into a fly himself in a gruesome, utterly grotesque metamorphoses. David Cronenberg directs The Fly masterfully, and manages to make it extremely disgusting and super vile.

The Exorcist (1973)




This legendary horror film has scared the shit out of millions of people around the world. So why would it not be on this list?

Pedophilia, rape, prostitution. Mysterious Skin is definitely on the sleazy and tragic side of things. Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance is brilliant and it's sad and scary how his character is constantly victimized in this movie.
Severin Severin's rating:




This is another one of those films that nearly made me throw up. Helen Mirren plays an abused wife, always in a constant gut wrenching fear of her psychotic gangster of a husband. They always visit the same restaurant every week, and she begins leaving during meals to cheat on him with some random guy. The two have sex in the goddamn meat locker ew unsanitary.. And then she comes back like nothing happened. But when the husband finds about the affair, that's when it gets real sick.

This is a nice film about a bunch of guys going for a manly vacation in the woods. Until a bunch of inbred hicks (white trash strike yet again!) and nature screws them over. The "I bet you can squeal like a pig. Weeeeeeee!" scene is especially fucked.

Martin Scorsese directs this bloody and trippy vision of Jesus' life and death, and Willem Dafoe plays him brilliantly. I don't get why people shit themselves over it being "sacrilegious." It rustled some Christian jimmies but c'mon Jesus being portrayed with imperfection is realistic.

Jon Voight plays a prostitute and Dustin Hoffman stars as his sickly pimp in this gritty flick about tough life in New York. Really goddamn depressing.
