2 come to mind
the bit in apocalypto where the jaguar bites that guy in the face
american history x, the kerb...
eyes gouged out, heads drilled, sawings, stabbings, limbs torn off, torsos torn in half, all manner of body parts bitten or pulverised, even breasts sliced off but for sheer distasteful lingering voyeuristic glee the flogging in the passion of the christ has to be up there.
with the woman who locks up that author after hes had an accident and cares for/totures him, where she smashes his legs one after another. im soft.
where she cuts off his balls
i forget the name of it
she ties him to the kitchen table?
But it's just an elastic band, not his balls.
i thought that movie was great
Come to think of it, pretty much everything in that movie.
There's a bit of it at 2:45 in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0SmHZV1Zks
because then you see all the prisoners against their cell doors going "KILL 'IM! KILL 'IM! KILL 'IM! KILL 'IM! KILL 'IM! KILL 'IM!"
is the bit in Martyrs where she rips the helmet thing off that tortured girl's head.
i keep reading what a great film it is and all that kind of horror movie of the year hype but it doesn't sound particularly earthshattering
there are a lot of twists in the plot, you think you're working out where the film is going then bang it all changes again. there are only a few scenes in it that are actually really grim though, it's more about the suspense and the tension i think.
it's worth watching, though i'm sure a lot of people on here would tell you otherwise...
despite the fact its french. it doesnt 'say' anything more than any of the hollywood versions of this.
I was not expecting Changeling to be quite as harrowing as it is. Fuck.
mentioned THAT seen in Caché?
That bit is the stuff of nightmares.
Totally shocked me.
Please tell me what happens in that scene in Cache
where Jason freezes her face in liquid nitrogen or summit then he's all like BLLAAAOOOOW and her head is all fucked up and shit
Mike Myers boils someones head in a hottub
but the implied castration at the end of doom generation
where they show leatherface graphically gutting that fellas innards with the chainsaw. that was pretty fucked up
it's one of the few things that still genuinely makes me cringe
either way the guy gets his head smashed in with a fire extinguisher or when monica belluci's character gets raped then kicked the shit out of....
good movie though
I actually felt queasy
where the girl takes off peoples fingernails with hammer and chisel :(
like, even in something generally not all that creepy like the american the ring, the fingernail being pulled off thing freaks me out
The arty farty cinema near me do a thing where you can vote for your favourite film to be screened at xmas. Something feel good, It's a Wonderful Life type thing.
This had 7 votes.
the local arty farty cinema near me do this thing where at Xmas you can vote for a film to be screened.
You know, something feel good, It's a Wonderful Life type thing.
This got seven votes.
I fucking knew it.
Although I found the torture in Reservoir Dogs very unpleasant...
but i just wanted to mention that bit in pan's labyrinth where the guys face gets smashed in with the butt of a pistol :(((((((
was NOT expecting it to actually show it :/
how they made that look so real.
I couldnt watch. I'm a Massive girls blouse
can't find it on youtube
The bit I found truly horrifying was the gang rape towards the end, though.
AND American History X
when the guy gets his head kicked against the curb
after that bit in se7en when the guy who's been starved to death wakes up. very unsettling.
Audition has always stayed with me - horrrid
Irreversible - The fire extinguisher in the face.
Last House on The Left - The final rape.
Home Alone 2: Lost In New York - Bricks in Marv's face repeatedly.
Martyrs - The whole of it.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - Leatherface cuts off the guys face and then puts it on. Although this is quite funny also.
The Dark Knight - 'Magic Trick' (It's wonderful how they got away with this)
when Lance Henriksen steps on a corpse's head and it's brains pop out. That was...unexpected.
Ichi The Killer and the tongue bit. Oh and Akira, where that chick gets squashed in Tetsuo's fleshy mounds. Good times :(
The wine bottle to face incident. I found that tremendously disturbing in it's tenacity, it felt like it went on for much longer than it did.
Surprised nobody has mentioned the trio of french films High Tension(Switchblade Romance),Frontiers And Inside.
When Ray Winstone beats the fuck out of Kathy Burke.
CUNT CUNT CUNT!
so my nomination would be
Wild at heart - the bit at the beginning where Nicolas Cage beats the guys brains out
There's a truly revolting moment when the deranged maniac sets about his female victim with a saw in a gynaecological fashion. Appalling.
And SPOILER(ish) ALERT !!!!! Not a film, but anyone who has seen Episode 10 of Season 4 of The Wire will know what I'm talking about. The final image was stuck in my head for hours. A very, very powerful scene.
The bit that stuck with me the most out all of the episodes of the wire was in the opening few minutes of Season 4 where some lad is about to be executed down the vacants and he's begging for his life.
When Chris just stoves that guy's head in (long after he's actually dead) until he looks like a raw beetroot, and even Snoop looks shocked.
the scene with the eye
was during the ill advised watching of a deleted torture scene from GANGSTER NO. 1 which is/ was on you tube. you don't really see much but it's more the sheer grimy 60s suited n booted cockernee laddishness of the whole thing that put the wind up me.
famed U.S. critic roger ebert described GANGSTER NO. 1 as having the most realistic portrayal of violence he'd EVER seen so it wasn't just me.
the prison riot scene.
plus the pan's labrynth one, but that was more because it made me really upset.
but i used too scared to watch past the first 15 minutes of jeepers creepers so my threshold is clearly quite low.
