Over the years there always been some movie somebody just can't stand watching.I do not mean because of the quality of the film, but the content.I have seen nearly everyone of DAVID CROENBERG'S film's over the years but I just had to stop watching VIDEODROME-83- the premise just got me sick.A relative of mine could not take WHOSE LIFE IS IT ANYWAY-80-with RICHARD DREYFUSS, because the condition of the main character just got to him. My sister years ago had to stop watching the pg horror film -HORROR EXPRESS-72- because she always been very sensitive when it comes to the eyes, in this film many eyes land up bleeding, Folks any film have you had to stop watching because you started to feel ill?

The first time I saw Saving Private Ryan on the big screen, the opening sequence, the beach landings at Normandy, made me very nauseous. I didn't have to leave the theater but it was very close... I had to close my eyes for a few minutes. I don't think it was the carnage, but rather the jerky camera movement that was making me ill.

Dune, it was just so ugly. The whole production was ugly and made me squeamish. Same with Judge Dredd (The Stallone film) Probably many of today's films, but I know to avoid them.

There are exceptions to the rule. Clockwork Orange, Alien, and The Thing (82) . Pretty uncomfortable to watch but so well made.

One film that made me feel unclean was the original I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. I couldn't finish it.

David Lynch's BLUE VELVET, one sick piece of crap (especially the Dennis Hopper scenes). Cronenberg's NAKED LUNCH was also pretty hard to stomach.

I watched Georges Franju's EYES WITHOUT A FACE for the first time a couple of months ago. It's a film from 1959, and I assumed the gore level would be fairly nil. Then I got to the face removal surgery scene. I was saying to myself, "Yikes, what a situation. But they'll cut away before it gets too gruesome, right? This is a black and white 1950s French film. Nope. The, uh, surgical proceedings were quite graphic, and I actually felt faint momentarily. (I generally avoid gory "nasties," so I'm somewhat vulnerable) (Not that I would call this film a nasty. It's quite brilliant.) Interestingly, I probably wouldn't have been as shocked by a similar scene in a modern day CGI-filmed version.

Also, I happened to be eating dinner while watching Fassbinder's IN A YEAR OF 13 MOONS last year. One scene depicts two of the characters having a conversation while strolling through a working slaughterhouse in all its grisly detail. I kept my eyes solely on the bottom of the screen just to read the subtitles until that scene was over! big grin

I have a pretty strong stomach and can take quite a bit, even more extreme gore. I might still cringe at the sight of things, but off the top of my head, the only time I actually started to feel a little sicky was while watching Day of the Dead for the first time several years ago. As the base is overrun at the end, we see various shots of zombies lumbering around the place, and some of them are snacking on human flesh in bloody detail. I can watch it fine now but that first time I got a little bit of a queasy feeling during some of those shots.

My mom thought it was funny that I could watch all those gory horror movies, but then last year I fainted while watching her get a shot in the hospital. LOL!

Takashi Miike's movies feature some gruesome material and as a result I still haven't finished his 'Imprint' entry in Masters of Horror, the idea of nails being torn off combined with needles I've always found horrific... I will watch it one day big grin

I used to turn away a lot during Pet Semetary, the sequence with Zelda as well as Fred Gwynne getting cut in his ankle. As Michael pointed out, 'Day of the Dead', with shots of bodies being torn apart and guts/entrails on heavy display. The chest burster scenes in "Aliens" and most recent a certain scene in Prometheus (very squeamish and the infection risk alone had me in shock). The puppet walk and drug needles in "ANOES 3 Dream Warriors". Many episodes of Friday the 13th tv series that still creep me out.

All those dumbass Hollywood superhero movies aimed exclusively at people with acne problems.

Just out of curiosity, not trying to pick a fight, but why single out superhero films when that same target audience applies equally to just about every blockbuster these days?

Cronenberg's The Fly, though very good, never fails to make me want to hurl.

And I also got a migraine while watching Altered States.

I was very disturbed by the child-seizure in the car scene in CUJO.

Because they are a-plenty.

I found Seance on a Wet Afternoon a harrowing watch due to the child abduction aspect, and I know I'm not alone in that. We also struggled with AI, the scene where the "kid" is abandoned in the woods - but found it easier after the first time, knowing how the tale unfolded.

Both these things, of course, are down to being a parent.

I can take any amount of gore nowadays, but I don't like horror film "jumps" very much, and I'm not partial to vomiting on film, especially when I'm eating myself. (For the avoidance of doubt, I don't mean I'm eating parts of myself, I mean just when I myself am eating.)

A Serbian Film....I mean, you don't watch this flick unless you know what to expect, but one scene in particular had me going out for some fresh air.

Society was rather gross when i saw it at the time.

In more recent times the foot sawing scenes in audition were fairly gruesome.

Equally the films like hostel and saw are no longer teenage slasher films but borderline snuff films.

The other thing for me is the tv series of Hannibal. Because of the obsession with serial killers since Silence of the lambs, they now have a spiral where each serial killer has to be more sick, more gruesome, more depraved than the last one. One in Hannibal recently created symmetrical shapes with victims limbs on a totem pole. Last week eddie izzard cut open a blokes chest and removed intestines and got a journalist to hold the parts.

We are way past vomit now...

Pan's Labyrinth- I had to turn it off after the face smashing scene. And I even knew ahead of time it was coming from reading comments on IMDB. But I just couldn't get past that scene.

Superman Returns- Ive said this before, the dog eating dog scene. It had forever tainted my view of that film. It had a lot of problems to begin with but that took it over the top.

Master and the Commander- Cutting off a young boys injured arm. Brain surgery on the deck of the ship. No Thxs.

The Human Centipede.

Sure, OK, so we actually don't people eating poop while their mouths are attached to someone else's butthole. Kudo's to the writer and director for exercising discretion. But really, what made me sick the subject matter and the fact that it was even made and it garnered way too much attention than it even deserved.

It's a mean, nasty little film that has no cinematic value whatsoever. It was made to do exactly what it did, shock and disgust and create an uproar. I was pissed off at my roommate who rented this turd of a film via Netflix and after the surgery occurred and the first bowel movement occurred, I walked about. But do the fact that it was being shown in my living room I had things to take care of so I was in and out and saw snippets of it, basically the standard inability of anyone being able to kill the worlds ugliest mad scientist.

So yeah, the mere fact of thinking of someone being force fed someone else's waste grosses me out.
