Disturbing Movies

    Seriously, what is the point of making disturbing sick movies that contains deformation of the human body or torturing humans.
    I mean if we have a bit of humanity in us those type of movies should be banned, because even if they don't disturb the mind they plant some very bad ideas in some people.
    Do you agree with me?

      I totally agree.  years ago I found out the when I watch movies that contained a lot of deformation of human body I had difficulty sleeping and the images stays with me for a very long time.

      this what I call "unuseful knowledge" (i pray to gain only the useful one)

      I watched 8mm movie (Nic Cage) I know its not a creepy movie ..but it ruin my days though!..the fact that it actually happens in real life..

      I try to erase the memory by watching sandra bullocks movies...it kinda help:D

      I agree..... I think there shouldn't be movies made like that.... why can't people be satisfied with their dramas, comedies, crime, adventure, etc. Horror movies just make it difficult for me to go to sleep at night and stay asleep.

      I agree, I've seen some of the Saw films and hated the whole mean nasty spirit of the movies.
      Pointless and cruel.

      i have only walked out on one movie in decades of life
      i walked out on "the postman always rings twice"
      the remake with jack nicholson
      the whole close up of his fingers in the lead actress' crotch was just stupid to me
      if i wanted to see crotch i would have taken my fake id and gone and watched REAL porn instead of some lameless r rated movie with that needless shot
      that was total b*llsh*t to me
      at least series like "faces of death" are exaCtly what you expect them to be

      Violence in movies, even dark and uncensored violence, has its place. How many people were stirred by the dark images in Schindler's List to have a new understanding of the horrors of genocide? Sanitizing our entertainment doesn't lessen violence, it simply lessens our perceptions of its horror.

      I do agree on some points though, the excessively ugly (yet bloodlessly portrayed) violence on TV (all the Law and Order's and CSI's) gives people rather a creepy and distorted view of the world as a terrible and murderous place full of child molesters and serial killers.

        What was the movie you saw? I found The Last House on the Left to be disturbing but I would still watch it.  Another one was Mysterious Skin I think it was called (ages ago I saw it) but it was pretty sick and twisted.  The people that get ideas from movies and go and act upon them are sick people to begin with. I mean look at Childs Play, those movies have been blamed on a few murders but how many people have watched them and lead normal lives!!!  If it isn't in a movie, someone will read it in a book or see something on the internet etc.  Unfortunately we have some very sick people in society and taking away sick movies would not fix it in my opinion.

    I think it's a persons responsibility to find out about a movie before they watch it. If it contains violence, gore, sexual themes, etc, then they should watch something else.

    1. Nady profile image67
      Nadyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I agree with you Origin. But only few people does that. the human nature is curious. most the teens nowadays look for the weird and different things. And media is a very strong weapon in directing people's minds. Those movie are out there, even if you don't want to see them you'll hear about them , or even see a glimpse.

      you said it right!!! you have to be able to  say a movie is just a movie your common sence has to tell you whats right and wrong. Jeepers creepers was very erie and the last house of the left was great. Saw movies are going to far and it should of never been made into a video game(to easy for kids to get there hands on)

    Lisa HWposted 7 years ago

    I'm one of those who pays attention to whether a movie looks like it's going to disturbing (at least when it comes to gore and violence), so I never see them.  I can't say I'm comfortable with censoring things, though.

    I think parents of younger-end teens (if they're doing things right) still have some say over what the kid sees (or at least what he sees regularly).  With older teens, I imagine a whole lot of them see stuff their parents wish they hadn't; but if your son or daughter is a normal, well adjusted, person he either won't make a habit of seeing that stuff or will get bored with it.  (He may also see a thing or two he wished he hadn't and be more careful about what movies he sees.)  If something really crosses the line for a lot of people, chances are it will cross the line for an normal, late-teens, son or daughter too.

    If you have a teen who gravitates only to that kind of stuff, you have a bigger problem than the movie, itself.

    Rather than Censor films like that, because the argument is it takes away freedom of speech... promote independent film makers with the original stories instead of hyping the latter up in the media

    Bill Manningposted 7 years ago

    Nady, I know what movie you are talking about. There has been a lot of talk about if that movie went too far. Since those types of movies don't appeal to me, I did not watch it.

    We are all free to watch or not watch whatever we want. You think that movie was bad? I have seen many more times disturbing books and animations. You really have no idea what perverted things are out there if you want to ban this movie, which is tame compared to others out there.

    I don't like seeing that stuff, but they should not be banned. I just don't watch it; those that want to have every right to. Should you be able to ban someone's thoughts?

    A movie is just what someone thought of, and decided to make to show others his/her ideas. Banning a movie is like banning a persons thoughts and dreams, a very scary scenario.

    Live and let live, watch and don't watch what you want, but don't say you know more than anyone else what others should think or see.

      My wife and I have become very selective about what we watch.  It is a personal choice we all need to make.  I feel sensorship is wrong in any form, except when parents have to sensor what their children watch.  We love watching anything scary, as long as it has a plot and sub-plots, and involves anything paranormal.  No gore generated by people harming people, no dogs dying (or any other animals).  It has to be vamires, werewolves, ghosts, etc.  We will also watch westerns and those Blue Collar Comedians.  I think it comes down to knowing "it's only a movie".

        Glenn: That;s what I do too. I watch horror and scary movies that has a story. And I always stay away from gore movies. But somehow I ended up seeing some scenes of that movie and I wish I hadn't.I do regret it. But at the same time I thought why is that kind of torture expressed in the open. I don't know, for me it's sick.

      Bill: If you want to talk about not erasing person's thoughts , then I guess we should't argue with war criminals, and with women and child abusers. I mean those people also have thoughts that made them did what they did. There are things that are humane and things that are not. And as humans we can't just sit and watch torture and say nothing.

      1. Bill Manning profile image74
        Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        True, but that's not the same thing. We are talking about movies. Actually I think anyone can think anything they want, even if it's vile and cruel. Only if they act on it and hurt others does it become unacceptable.

        Anyone should be able to make any type of movie they want as long as all the actors are willing participants. We can watch it or not, it's our choice.

        But like I said, I do agree the movie was sick and disturbing, not for me at all. Sorry you saw parts that upset you, I know how hard it is to "unsee" it. sad

          I agree with you about anyone can think anything they want. That's the best part about thoughts sometimes; THE THINGS WE THINK ABOUT!
          The not good part if we act on some of the unacceptable things we think about. And that's what I'm worried about, if someone "sick or not" watch those disturbing movies and think of applying it.

    Anyways I just wrote a lot of words about the topic this week.  I agree that The Human Centipede doesn't offer a lot of value, but disturbing doesn't mean intellectually inferior.

    Absolutely not.
    Banning film because a thimble-full of nuts might get ideas? Bollocks.
    Those with the propensity for violence will find an excuse or chance either way.

    I love disturbing films. Just saw "Begotten." Gave me shivers, but was lovely.

    Too me a movie is just a movie. When its only fiction it's not that disturbing. Like Freddie and Michael Myres kind of movies. But I once saw a movie called Frailty it was not that Gory but it was a story that could actually happen in real life. That movie always makes me shutter. I don't know if it was based on a real life story or not but it sure felt like it when I was watching it. So if Movies are fictitious with no basis for reality, its fun to get scared, but when it could really happen then its to scarey for me.

    The most disturbing movie I have ever seen is called Pink Flamingos. It celebrates 'filth' as a way of rebelling from societal norms. I can understand what it was trying to do but mostly it just made me want to vomit. (Someone eats crap for real in this one)

    The great thing about being an adult is you get to pick and chose what you like.  Hollywood won't make movies if there is no audience.

    I'm the kind of person who can't handle realistic gore. I can't even watch those NCIS/CSI shows. But unrealistic movies, like zombie flicks, don't really bug me. If I can laugh at it, it doesn't bug me too much.

    There's an element of psychology that needs to be present to really creep me out. I remember those Rob Zombie films really bugging me, but tons of people think they're awesome.

    Another movie that is disturbing is Elephant. It's about school shootings and it just leaves you with an unsettled feeling.

    I am totally against censorship.  If you don't like a certain genre of movies or particular content, then don't watch those movies. 

    The kind of people who imitate what they've seen in horror movies are clearly disturbed and can't tell the difference between reality and make-believe.  Even if disturbing movies didn't exist, disturbed people still would. 

    I've heard about Human Centipede and it sounds terrible!  However, since I know that it would be difficult to get rid of those images from my mind I refuse to ever see it.  I'm sorry for anyone who accidentally stumbles upon it!

    the most disturbing movie i have seen was homemade porno
    my girlfriend at the time had an eating disorder and while she still was this barely legal babe in my heart and mind she was nearly 300 pounds and naked on camera
    seen through obljective eyes it is very disturbing
    well that and some of you guys might be disturbingly jealous of my cute butt and manly manhood
    yeah home made porn has gotta top the list
