Highly disturbing climax.

I don't find gore shoching really - more amusing than anything.
Things like Shindlers List, Scum and Romper Stomper are shocking because you know they're real or could be real.
Horror movies are generally jank.

If it doesn't have to be a movie -
My goth brother brought home a DVD set called "Faces of Death" once. Quite possibly the most shocking thing I have ever seen. It's supposed to be a documentary that focusses on people dying, most in really shocking ways. Some you can tell are fake, but I don't know if the whole thing is. It's made in the 70s I think and the doctor/narrator guy is a ridiculously poor actor but despite all these criticisms (even if it is fake - so are the fictional movies, I suppose) it is just phenomenally shocking. I couldn't watch it all.
I don't even know where you can get it apart from the official website or whether it's legal. But I just went with the title of the thread.

Ichi The Killer
Guinea Pig: Flowers of Flesh and Blood
August Underground's Mordum
Salo: 120 Days of Sodom
These will be unlke ANYTHING you have seen. US actor Charlie Sheen actually took the Guinea Pig video to the FBI because he thought it was a genuine snuff film. It's pretty grim stuff. You have been warned...

My Film Studies A2 exam in the summer is on 'Shocking Cinema' so in preparation we have to watch one film that we find shocking every week and write up about it. Just wondering if you guys had any ideas for good shocking films that I could try and get hold of?
-Saw (1,2 & 3)
-American Werewolf in London

The #1 most shocking film (as agreed on by almost all shock film critics) is a movie called Mordum. It's a fake snuff film with actors made to look real. Highlight scene, dude dressed as a chick, humping a rotting baby whose head has been ducktaped back on, while the dude's sister cheers him on and eats maggots. Sick, Sick stuff.

If that's the point the I'd focus on the different reaction between Psycho and Peeping Tom - both shocking, bith twisted genre perceptions - one ended the director's career, the other made the director famous forever. And both were almost the same year.

Misery. The writer gets his ankles broken with a sledge hammer so he can't escape from her house. Kathy Bates is fucking scary in that. Never been able to see her in the same way since.
