Default Most Offensive Movie You've Seen?

Ok whats the most offensive and downright disturbing movie you have ever seen i have to say for me it would be a movie called A Serbian Film. I consider this movie to be wrong on so many levels and how it even got a release is insane.

The most disturbing film I've seen is probably August Underground Mordum. Really pissed me off that movie did coz I loved it and I shouldn't have as it's a sick puppy.
Didn't find it offensive though.
Not much offends me except crap Irish(Oirish) accents in movies...we don't all sound like leprecauns here. Oh be gorrah, be de hokey, where's me pot o gold. If your gonna play someone who's Irish listen to some Irish people and don't just 'study' by watching Darby O Gill a few times.

Nothing has really disturbed or offended me at all in the world of cinema. Probably because I'm not that easily offended nor disturbed, but also because I pretty much know what I'm expecting to see/hear when I watch a film. When you start to watch a gory or sick film, I'm pretty much physically and mentally prepared to see almost anything. Detachment from the realism, tends to find me more curious about how the shocking scenes were shot, and how the effects were created rather than the events themselves.

As for A Serbian Film, the over-hype, rather than the 'shocking' content left me with a sour taste in my mouth. What I thought about it, you may of already read, but is posted here.

As for sickness value, I pretty much agree with mbv on Mordum being one of the sickest films that I've seen.

I agree completely,I watched it and wished I hadnt,I have also seen some film clips of the Vienna actionists/activists which I really,REALLY, didnt like,but yeh A Serbian Film has some totally major issues and repulsive moments.

You know we talk about the 80s nasties hype but when you look at films these days like Martyrs, they to me are repulsive. Torture Porn so to speak - not entertainment. The torture porn movies of recent years have no redeeming value but to offend as much as they can. Not for me. Give me rubber monsters anyday!!

most disturbing for me in order would be

1. a serbian film
2. august underground mordum
3. salo
4. irreversible
5. snuff 102


and for the most offensive film i think it would be fantacide, just cuz of the racism! to me the film wasn't just about a Nazi group it was made by one too.

I dont really get offended by films either but a few scene's in Snuff 102 kinda stuck with me for a bit after my first veiwing of it.
The only other that springs to mind is Last House on Dead End Street , and thats pretty mild to some of the stuff i've seen , but for some reason i've always felt abit uneasy watching it.

Agree with you on Last House on Dead End Street. It's indefinably grimy and sleazy. But it's also frighteningly prophetic. His declaration of 'violence is the new pornography' has chillingly come to pass. Just look at where we are now.

As for films that have offended me, I can't really say I've seen anything that's fictional and offended me. Boredom....I mean...Mordum was tiresome and ineffectual and I couldn't wait for it to end, I was bored senseless. Simply parading a catalogue of atrocities before the camera is not good storytelling. There was no depth to the characters, so we are never afraid of the villains and we can't connect with the victims either. It's basically just a bunch of wannabe metal-heads who think this is what constitutes horror. It doesn't and Vogel and crew were way off the mark with this piece of crap.

I didnt find martys to be bad just got repetitive and showing basicaly the same scene for around 20 min r so which i found dull boring and pointless,
Not that i get offended at a lot of things or the fact i do or dont find offensive, i tend to find films like guniea pig series and films like Grotesque more of what kind of ppl, audience are they aming these film for. def not the normal type in my opinion. but i deffo agree there no need for the torture porn. i much prefer horror as in tcm, burning old zombie films the basic type thats gory but at same time enjoyable to watch, and not the type where u feel bad r disgusted watching with ppl who
arnthorror fans, i do think a lot of todays film have lost the plot or strayed from the meaning of horror films and gone down the road of pushing unecessary and pointless boundries
