  • There's bound to be a film out there that pushes one or two of your buttons.
  • These movies, on the other hand, push every single one of them.
  • These movies aren't just hard to watch.
  • They aren't just edgy.
  • And they don't just challenge the entire concept of good taste.
  • They're deeply disturbing on almost every level.
  • Director Eli Roth is no stranger to movies that are hard to sit through.
  • His 2006 horror hit Hostel proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt, and turned his name into
  • a synonym for over-the-top violence.
  • With The Green Inferno, however, Roth pushes things further than ever before, and unless
  • you're a seasoned gorehound, chances are you won't make it to the end.
  • In the grand tradition of the video nasties of the '70s and '80s, Inferno tells the tale
  • of a group college-aged activists who head to the Amazon to protest a logging operation.
  • They find cannibals instead.
  • "We are all going to escape tonight, all of us, I promise."
  • "Okay?"
  • "Okay."
  • You can probably imagine the non-stop stream of gore and misery that follows, and if you
  • can't last through the whole movie, well, that's kind of the point.
  • In an interview with Rolling Stone, Roth said:
  • "If I've really done my job as a director, nobody can actually watch your movie…
  • You don't want people walking out of a movie; you want them running out of the theater screaming.
  • When that happens, that's like a standing ovation for me."
  • The Green Inferno achieves its unsettling dread by shooting on location in Peru, utilizing
  • physical special effects, and casting members of the Amazon's native population in key roles.
  • That's led some critics to accuse Inferno of cultural appropriation, but Roth doesn't
  • seem to mind.
  • He's insisted that the amateur actors were all paid fairly, and while they didn't have
  • much experience in front of the camera they, quote, "got it right away and loved it."
  • Don't confuse Martyrs, the 2008 French thriller, with its 2015 American remake.
  • Both movies have roughly the same plot, but there's one big difference: the English language
  • version is remarkably tame, despite its inherently unsettling subject matter.
  • That's by design.
  • Writer Mark L. Smith told Creative Screenwriting:
  • "I'm not a lover of violence.
  • I tried to stay away from all the violence and keep it offscreen, which was kind of the
  • polar opposite of the original."
  • So if you've got a low tolerance for abuse and still want to watch something messed up
  • for some reason, stick with that one.
  • On the other hand, if you want to test your mettle, go for the original.
  • With graphic depictions of brutal acts, Martyrs isn't for the faint of heart.
  • When it screened at Cannes, audiences left the theaters in droves.
  • They just couldn't handle it.
  • From the basic plot to the film's horrifying climax it's easy to understand why.
  • Sure, Martyrs is also a nuanced story about guilt and friendship, and Smith is right when
  • he says that there's more to it than mere gore.
  • But the gore is a big part of it.
  • Like the New York Times wrote, this isn't one for amateurs.
  • You won't find everything that makes Irreversible hard to watch on screen.
  • Don't get us wrong: Emotionally, the movie is absolutely brutal.
  • It's bad enough that even its star, Monica Bellucci, can't sit through it.
  • But that's not the only reason over 250 people fled the film's Cannes premiere, with many
  • fainting or seeking medical treatment.
  • The sound played a big role, too.
  • See, Irreversible uses infrasound, or low-frequency sound waves, to augment its unsettling visuals.
  • You can't actually hear the sound, but your body registers it anyway, leading to feelings
  • of anxiety, unease, distress, and depression, in addition to the shivers and, sometimes,
  • nausea.
  • "It's sort of anxiety producing.
  • I don't know about fear, but it's unnerving."
  • It's a trick that many modern horror films use, including Paranormal Activity, and while
  • infrasound doesn't affect every member of the audience in the same way, it's credited
  • as one of the reasons why Irreversible makes many members of its audience feel sick.
  • In fact, many people who watch don't even make it very far into the film.
  • Thanks to the soundtrack, a mere half hour of Irreversible is more than enough for many
  • viewers, forcing them to turn the film off before its most horrific action even truly
  • begins.
  • When The Woman made its Sundance debut, many people left the theater.
  • Others simply wished they had.
  • By all indications, that's exactly the type of reaction director Lucky McKee was hoping
  • for.
  • The plot, which centers on a dysfunctional family's attempt to "civilize" a wild woman
  • by locking her in the basement and torturing her, is explicitly designed to push every
  • misogynistic and toxically masculine button.
  • "Do we really get to keep her?"
  • "We do."
  • Oddly, it's also a thoughtful and nuanced film, at least once you get past its surface
  • shocks.
  • It's not all gore and gloom.
  • The Woman has something to say.
  • It also has a pretty decent Rotten Tomatoes score, especially for this kind of thing.
  • There's a rewarding experience lurking underneath the discomfiting chills, you just have to
  • last through the whole movie to find it.
  • Good luck.
  • Filmgoers at the Toronto International Film Festival should've known what they were in
  • for.
  • After all, its late-night "Midnight Madness" programming block has its name for a reason:
  • anything goes.
  • Unfortunately, not everyone got the memo, and one film fan found Coralie Fargeat's Revenge
  • so intense that he had a seizure right in the middle of the theater.
  • Reportedly, it was a stomach churning scene in which a man is forced to remove a giant
  • piece of glass from his foot that did it.
  • Fargeat told IndieWire:
  • "We started to hear someone say, 'hello, hello,' from the audience.
  • I didn't know if it was someone making [a joke] in the room, then I see the paramedics
  • in the cinema."
  • Thankfully, the audience member was fine.
  • He was in good company, too.
  • Revenge lead Matilda Lutz admitted that the scene made her feel "weird" as well, and she
  • was there when the scene was shot.
  • If that scene doesn't get you, the rest of Revenge very will might.
  • Starring Lutz as a woman out for vengeance after being left for dead by her lover and
  • his friends, all of which is shown on screen, naturally, Revenge is a lean, brutal, and
  • extremely well-reviewed thriller that's just as thrilling as it is disturbing.
  • Just don't take it lightly.
  • Lars von Trier has been down this road before.
  • In 2009, the director rolled into Cannes with Antichrist, a film that probably deserves
  • its own entry on this list.
  • It's wildly misogynistic, unsettling, and is relentlessly bleak, and people walked out
  • when it screened.
  • "Chaos reigns."
  • A decade later, von Trier did it again.
  • After doling out a multi-year ban to von Trier after the director said he sympathized with
  • Adolf Hitler, Cannes authorities decided to let the filmmaker exhibit his latest picture
  • at the 2018 festival.
  • Well, surprise!
  • The House that Jack Built is even more difficult to stomach than its predecessor.
  • In the movie, Matt Dillon plays a serial killer on a 12-year murder spree.
  • When The House that Jack Built screened, people left.
  • Not just one or two, either.
  • Reportedly, more than 100 festival guests decided to leave the theater rather than finish
  • watching.
  • In the aftermath, attendees turned to Twitter to express their disgust, calling von Trier's
  • movie "vomitive" and claiming that it, quote, "should not have been made."
  • Fair criticisms, but they should've expected it.
  • The House that Jack Built is so gross that it wasn't even allowed to compete for the
  • Palme d'Or, Cannes' top prize.
  • Instead, it screened outside of competition in order to avoid any Antichrist-like controversies.
  • When horror fans entered the theater to see Bite at Fantasia Fest 2015, they received
  • special Bite-branded barf bags.
  • It wasn't a joke.
  • As Fantasia Fest co-director Mitch Davis posted on Facebook, during the screening, at least
  • two people passed out.
  • One hit his head on the stairs.
  • Another started puking.
  • By the time the film wrapped, an ambulance was on site, treating various members of the
  • audience for illness.
  • That's a pretty strong reaction, but on the other hand, Bite is a particularly gross movie.
  • The horror begins in Costa Rica, where a bride-to-be receives a mysterious insect bite while celebrating
  • her bachelorette party.
  • "I'm fine.
  • It's just a small bug bite."
  • Not that Casey has time to worry about it, of course.
  • She's already struggling with her upcoming wedding, her domineering soon-to-be mother-in-law,
  • and her fiancé's child filled plans for their future.
  • Like Bite's audience, however, Casey doesn't realize the severity of her situation.
  • Before long she's puking up pus, laying egg sacks around her apartment, raising a hive
  • of carnivorous monsters, and watching as her body decomposes, revealing the insectoid form
  • underneath.
  • In other words, Bite quickly goes from a middling character drama into full-on body horror,
  • and it doesn't really offer a break once it kicks into high gear.
  • And as Fantasia Fest proves, it's not an easy movie to finish.
  • In fact, you may find it to be something of an endurance test if you do sit down to watch
  • it.
  • When a filmmaker says their movie is going to make you vomit, believe them.
  • It's far, far better than the alternative.
  • Sam Peckinpah's grim and gritty western The Wild Bunch might be considered a classic now,
  • but during its initial run, the movie's hardcore violence was too much for late '60s moviegoers.
  • Preview audiences lambasted the film, calling it "wasted insanity."
  • After launch, cowboy king John Wayne complained that The Wild Bunch's blood-soaked action,
  • quote, "destroyed the myth of the Old West."
  • Even by modern standards, The Wild Bunch is still grotesquely violent.
  • In the '90s, Warner Bros. tried to release a director's cut with 10 extra minutes of
  • footage.
  • None of that new stuff was particularly gory, but the MPAA still took the opportunity to
  • change The Wild Bunch's rating from an R to an NC-17, keeping the film out of theaters
  • for an extra two years.
  • The Wild Bunch is brutal and uncompromising and, at the time, was too much for many theater
  • attendees, some of whom walked out just 20 minutes into the film.
  • Just because The Wild Bunch is a classic doesn't mean it's easy to watch.
  • Even today, all of that bloody ultra-violence means that you might have to step away before
  • the final credits roll.
  • Don't be ashamed.
  • You'd hardly be the first one.
  • "Ain't like it used to be, but, uh … it'll do."
