Every person is affected differently by the movies. Some of us have an incredibly high tolerance for shocking onscreen moments, towards gore and brutality and yet some soldiers on. Movies which are featured here will test that line with in you. These are the movies that will be over the line for some or very close to it for others.Check out these 12 of the most brutal and violet movies and check how tolerant are you.
1. “Martyrs” (2008)
“Martyrs” is probably the most fascinating movie on the list, but it’s certainly one of those you’ll watch once and be all set after that. It starts out seeming like it’s just going to be a home invasion story, but then takes a sharp turn into, well, I don’t want to spoil it for you, but people get skinned alive and you’ll see people getting punched in a way that’s never bothered you as much in a movie. Just make sure you watch the original and not the subpar remake.
2. “Eden Lake” (2008)
A couple tries to have a relaxing weekend together, but a group of kids and teens start harassing them. Seems innocent enough, right? Haha no. Every time you think, “Oh things are about to turn around,” they get exponentially worse. By the time it’s over you’ll just want someone to hug you and let you know life is going to be OK.
3. “The Human Centipede 2” (2011)
The first “The Human Centipede” was gross, but it was the kind of gross where you’d turn your head and laugh because what was happening was so ridiculous. And then came the sequel. It shed itself of all the silliness and became so incredibly dark and brutal, it seemed to only exist to try and shock and offend. There’s a moment with a baby that’s so troubling I honestly regret ever seeing it.
4. “The Woman” (2011)
“The Woman” doesn’t have the blood and guts of others on the list, but there’s something about it that just sticks with you. The brutality isn’t dealt out by your typical villains and monsters; it’s by a family that, by all accounts, seems completely normal on the surface. Then you start to realize how deep things go and how the choices of parents affect the choices of their children. Just wait until you see how the whole thing ends.
5. “Halloween” (2007)
Rob Zombie is known for taking films to the extreme, but usually he creates his own world. The world of Michael Myers had already been established, so seeing Zombie’s vision of it was interesting, to say the least. Everyone seems like they need to take a hot shower, and there are a few scenes that are so troubling and gratuitous, you feel bad even watching them. Even characters you dislike die in ways that almost make you pity them. I swear the scene in the woods where Michael kills his bully seems like it lasts for a week.
6. “Inside” (2007)
It’s the story of a woman trying to take a pregnant woman’s baby by cutting it out of her with a knife. Can you imagine watching this while you were pregnant? You’d spend the next nine months of your life making sure every window was locked and alarms were installed on every door. Even if you aren’t pregnant, it’s one hardcore troubling ride.
7. “Megan is Missing” (2011)
You might not have heard of this one because it didn’t really get any sort of release, but if you’re a horror fan that digs to find hidden gems, you may have come across this one. The movie isn’t that well made and honestly it’s not that good, but the final scene is almost painful to watch. The story follows a teen girl trying to find her friend who was taken by an online predator. The final scene includes a sexual assault on a teen that feels like an eternity; then we get to watch her slowly being stuffed into a barrel where she continuously screams and begs for her life.
8. “Cannibal Holocaust” (1980)
The original found footage film is certainly not for the faint of heart. Animals actually get slaughtered onscreen, and the scenes of the cannibalistic tribe murdering outsiders were so vivid and grotesque the director was arrested because they believed he documented actual murders. It’s one of the oldest on the list and still one of the most brutal.
9. “Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom” (1975)
As far as plots go, there isn’t much of one. Basically a bunch of rich libertines kidnap 18 teens and torture them in every way you could possibly imagine. They’re sexually degraded, psychologically tormented and brutally murdered. To say it’s troubling is a severe understatement.
10. “The Passion of the Christ” (2004)
It’s shocking that so many churches took their congregations to watch a movie that’s gorier and more violent than 99 percent of other theatrically released movies. Reading the story of the crucifixion of Jesus in the Bible was vivid, but seeing it playing out onscreen was downright haunting. This is probably the only movie on the list that your mom has watched.
11. “High Tension” (2003)
“High Tension” gets a lot of praise, but it’s only from those that enjoy brutality, because the story makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I mean, at first it seems plausible enough, but when the twist is revealed and you spend any time at all thinking about it, everything totally falls apart. If the extreme violence doesn’t turn you off, you should watch it just for the absurd twist.
12. “A Serbian Film” (2010)
Very few movies would I tell you to never watch. Even the most poorly made movie can be hate watched or unintentionally provide a few laughs, but that is certainly not the case with “A Serbian Film.” Babies are sexually abused, the murders are repulsive and there’s necrophilia, which is more necrophilia than anyone should want in a movie. This is one time a ban on distribution wasn’t a bad thing at all.
