I'll jump on the bandwagon with Disney's Pinocchio. When little boys are turned into donkeys and roughed up as they are forced into crates. What was the line from the coachman? "If your going to act like jackasses your going to be one!" Then we see Pinocchio's friend graphically turn into a donkey as he's clawing at the little wooden boy. Also the kids were never rescued. So I surmise are forced to slave away as pack mulls until they die.

Another excellent Disney nightmare-inducing choice. The boys being turned into donkeys freaked me out as a child too....

"The "drowning" sequence in Paul Newman's SOMETIMES A GREAT NOTION, the definition of helplessness."

Timmer…that scene still haunts me, and I haven't seen this one for over three decades!



Me too Chris, I haven't seen this film for at least 20 years, it's a truly horrific scene that stays in the memory. It's interesting to see what pushes peoples buttons looking at this thread here, for me its the stuff that is based in reality, not the fantastical or supernatural though having said that I did find the demise of two characters in INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE ( one of them played by a young Kirsten Dunst ) a harrowing end.

JFK-90-DOUBLE CROSSING HYPOCRITE OF A MAN WHO PEOPLE IN STUPIDITY MADE A HERO.

Disgraceful. You just can't help yourself with your stupid ham-fisted political comments, can you?

I figured you would show up, everyone has opinions on everything and you try to create your own double standard. So then, we can only talk about disturbing in a few simple perceptions . Blood or gore or sexual activity, and not characters in films of dubious means? I brought in another form of how people get disturb by films with an incredible amount of films to give examples of and you want to close the gates and want to turn this into kindergarden.The more you think about it the more limited and silly you are trying to make this thread. If you say a world war 2 film, would that be insulting the perpetrators of such a war?, what is wrong with that.If you mention a crime film, would that be insulting possibly the mob or crime group. What is wrong with that? BUT if somebody brought up ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN , you would be happy and not a peep from you.

Since he is allowed to consistently break forum rules the child will continue to act out.

JFK is a disturbing movie, if you don't take to it I suggest watching Parkland.

A possibility is Tras el cristal otherwise known as In A Glass Cage.

You know it is interesting the more one thinks about this how silly the people here who are ranting against everything they don' like. I could simply state this which might be a small thing and yet really isn't. Let's say I am one of many people in this world who find it disturbing that a husband would go to a streetwalker[a john] cheating on his wife and finding that some John's might get arrested as well as get a bad image in their community for such an act. Then as a typical person see, what JFK DID, with those type of ventures, with big money, brothels, big time hoods etc etc,and not a peep from the so call law.Then as a average Joe I would be disturb at the double standard of society of how we can call someone a hero . I am human I would be disturb if my father did that to my mother[cheating many times] and my father didn't have a powerful position in government.Now I bet some people, here might have thought I was going to bring up something bigger against JFK, but then that is my point.It is sadly nothing new, but too often we lose our moral coating in our lives when we bring the social media into play, no less one's we foolishly call heroes. Simple great statements can help us along the way. Don't do to others what we wouldn't want done on ourselves.

Pasolini's Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma, Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom was a shocker to the senses.

As I mentioned earlier there are many perceptions of how a film can disturb us.SIGN OF THE CROSS-32- The ending with the lions.

Before the thread gets locked let me add the Ghanaian movie "Nkrabea". Very disturbing movie based on a true story about a man that cuts off the head of people and kept them in his house.

it would be sad if this is locked, because the question on this thread states, disturbing films you have seen. This isn't 1984, must our brains be censored, Every war film, crime film etc etc has some degree of characters who are committing acts. Where is the line and what films would be left to talk about- SALO? well, who was behind that?Sign of the cross? ROMAN GOVERMENT, where does this end?

Dan based on your rules I'll add Godzilla (2014) for its overt conservative propaganda war mongering US military machine masquerading as a monster movie.
