What is the most shocking and/or brutal horror movie you have seen? And why?

The hotel scene in The Devil's Rejects was pretty brutal for me, but I'm looking for more underground films.

À l'intérieur (Inside) was extremely graphic. It´s a french movie, which makes it even more scary in my opinion. hah
Anyways, it´s just...you know, it makes me not want to be pregnant EVER. Also, the killer is really really freaky because of the clothes she is wearing. She looks like a witch with the black hair and her ugly face.
The silent scenes were the ones who scared me the most. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER Like the one where the killer is just standing next to the girl watching her sleep. In this moment you can´t see the killer´s face and you´re like "what the hell is she doing? is she going to stab her or something?". You just keep waiting for something to happen, you know? I kept closing and opening my eyes during this scene. haha END OF SPOILER END OF SPOILER END OF SPOILER

Also, Frontières was brutal for me the first time I watched it, but not anymore...so it´s hard to explain why I liked it so much, sorry. I´ve got to say that the acting is great in this one.

I also have to say Haute Tension (High Tension). Again, one genious piece of french horror. In this movie the killer is not just the killer, that´s why it´s so shocking. It´s also very well done.

I LOVE Devil´s Rejects but nothing can beat the first movie. It was excellent. The bunny chase is the best part of the movie. The second one wasn´t that scary. =(
jlhfan624, so what movie are you talking about, the first one or the second?

Oh good ones! Thanks rosangie, I will have to check some of those out. I love High Tension, it's so brilliant!

The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still surprisingly shocking. But probably the most brutal horror movie I've ever seen is Audition from Asian horror master Takashi Miike. I have a pretty high tolerance for the sick stuff, but this one was almost too much for me. It's really slow at the start, but don't be fooled, the ending pays off!

Audition OMG. Great pick, but I kinda didn't like the movie. I wasn't really shocked or disturbed by it more like WTF?! I wasted money on this? Eh.
over a year ago AgentCoop said…
I think why it had such an impact on me is that I saw it just as I was getting into Asian horror and I knew nothing about it. So I'm watching this movie sort of meander along and I'm so bored I almost turn it off a couple of times. Then you get to the last twenty minutes or so and this little waif of a girl is doing stuff that's so twisted. I didn't see the curveball coming, and I always appreciate that in a movie.

The Most brutal I've ever seen was the first time *a LONG time ago* I saw Saw. Well, It might have been Saw 2, anyhow, I wasn't into Horror yet, and So It scared me to death and I thought "torture porn" was freaky. Now I love It so It's a bit odd.

Besides that, I was up late a few months ago and Hostel was on so I decided to give It a try. It was like Saw, only more graphic. Some of it was really disturbing, much more so then Saw, almost like they were trying to outdo Saw, ya know?

Lemme think... There has got to be something I'm forgetting.. Okay, now I remember. One day a movie called In A Dark Place was on Demand, so I watched It and OMG HORRIBLE. I mean, It's like a ghost story, but It was boring, the plot was off, and then all of a sudden, the two main characters, who are woman (I have NOTHING against this though) started making out in the middle of nowhere, at a very random moment. Anyhow, I kept watching until the end (Lord knows why, It really was horrible) and at the end *POSSIBLE SPOILER* Leelee Sobieski is chasing this kid on a tree branch and then he's like, drowning himself and she says something about being the "Only one" and then, out of nowhere, her face starts to fade into a ghost, and you know how sometimes your caught of guard and your hair stands on end because of something? That scared me so immediately bad that my heart was beating fast. *END OF POSSIBLE SPOILER* Anyhow, I researched the movie online *like I always do* And most people were confused also. It just wasn't very good at all, and VERY confusing. [/lame]

Murder-Set-Pieces( 2004) by Nick Palumbo
over a year ago jlhfan624 said…
I have heard of that one, but not seen it yet. It looks cool.
over a year ago brittlegirl94 said…
No way jlhfan624, DON'T see In A Dark Place, It was crap. Do see Let The Right One In though, woo! If you get Let The Right One In, put on the french dialoge with subtitles though, It's alot better in that way. That's just my opinion =]

Oh I was talking about Murder-Set-Pieces. IDK what movie the other one is haha
over a year ago bluej12 said…
Martyrs is a very violent film
there are a hand full of deaths and some serious torture
it is also kinda sad to know what happpened to both of the girls Anna and Lucie. Though it was sorta twisted it was still and good film, its disturbing and moving at the same time.

I also think that Deadgirl & Eden Lake are both CRAZY graphic. I swear I almost threw up after Eden Lake, it was alot to swallow. O.o

I touht some of the deaths in Cabin Fever were really bloody and gross, also Stacy's death in the Ruins was sad and made me wince (even though it was really Eric who died like that in the book.)
And REst Stop was brutal to me.

If you guys want true graphic and horror then check out August Underground Mordum....Beware its not for the faint hearted or young audience.

well my husbands thinks cannibal holocaust was because they killed live animals for real( that was made before the law of no killing animals for movies are set)
mine would have to be Nekromantik 2 (german film)
really the whole movie was disturbing and shocking. but mainly this woman digs up her old lover from the grave..may i add hes rotting and slimy and decayed. and numerous times has sex with it, then falls in love with a living man..then bangs him, then while having sex with him..cuts off his head and replaces her current lovers head with the decayed ex lover.

and The red room (japanese)- concept of movie is that 4 ppl are locked in a room with a red light and are given the chance of winning millions of dollars...(done before i know) but they draw cards to see who can do whatever gruesome act they choose) it gets really violent and gory.

I feel all foreign horror is shocking. and sometimes brutal but still makes some great films

american movie culture though I would have to say Fire in the sky ( hello ...scary alien experiments :( ) and cradle of fear and last house on the left..the whole raping scene was harsh..
over a year ago jlhfan624 said…
Ugh those Nekromantik movies are ones I will NEVER see. I can stomach a lot but not that. I've seen clips and they are just not fun.
