The Cinematic Katzenjammer: October Blogathon: Most F**ked Up Movies You've Ever Seen

Sunday

October Blogathon: Most F**ked Up Movies You've Ever Seen


Movies are more than just film on a screen. They can be nightmares, haunting our dreams and sleepless nights. Movies keep us up at night, on edge under the covers, gripping the sheets as tight as we can whenever the slightest sound echoes through the empty house. Movies inspire fear. They make you wonder if there really is something (or someone) hiding right outside your window, waiting for you to fall asleep before it makes a move. Movies make us question if we're alone or if there's more out there, be it a ghost wailing in the dark or a demon looking to make a deal. Movies show us the insides of human bodies, blood and gore spilling out with every slash, gunshot, or stabbing. Villains of the screen want nothing more than to tear us apart. Movies make you fear disease and all the flesh eating bacteria, zombie-turning viruses that could ruin the world we live in. And of course, movies make you sick, with gross-out moments and all-too-real bloody scenes that turn our stomachs inside out. 

This is a blogathon for those movies. I want to hear what films make you hate life, make you sick, or make you so disgusted you swear you'll never watch it again. I want to hear about the movie that's so grotesque, you feel compelled to show your friends and look away at all the gross moments because you know how f**ked up it all is. 


So, below I want you to post links to reviews, articles, essays, etc. about what you think is the most f**ked up movie(s) you've ever seen. Now, it doesn't have to be a horror movie, because we all know we've seen our own share of other sorts of things that are equally disturbing. Hell, it could even be a kids movie you found too messed up for your little brain. 


More than just straight links to reviews, though, I want to know WHY you think something is the most f**ked up ever. Dissect it, tear it apart, abuse the movie like it abuses you. Let it have it. And do it with a smile on your face.

Well that's easy!

I'll have a think of some more though. French horror movies have probably messed me up the most.

Is there a deadline or can we start publishing the articles?

 
At October 2, 2012 at 4:48 AM , Blogger Sofia said...

Oh okay, "the entire month", so we can start now, great :D This should be an interesting one, I already have a couple of submissions in mind.

 
At October 2, 2012 at 9:22 AM , Blogger Nick said...

Yep! You can post whenever you want and I'll compile it in a list. At the end of the month, I'll do a bigger recap (hopefully).

Great topic for a blogathon, Nick! I'm going to have to give this some thought.

Hello Nick. I bring you

The Vern's top 4 Scariest flicks.

http://www.videovangaurd.com/2011/10/theverns-top-4-scariest-movies.html

I chose these titles because they disturbed me to no end, even though I think they are all extremely well made.

As an adult there are certain movies which you watched as a kid, which for reason or another stick with you, be it the memorable characters, catchy songs or sometime just because they managed to scar your fragile little mind with scenes, which really question if these films were ever intentionally made for kids in the first place.

Many of these early shocks still stick with me now and are largely the reason that I still haven’t rewatched them since then. So in a bid to put to rest some of these childhood horrors, here are my top six films which it’s safe to say left a lasting impression on me for perhaps all the wrong reasons!

Did someone say A l'interieur? As soon as I saw the title of this blogathon, I knew that would be my choice. I'm not afraid of this new wave of French brutality in horror (love Frontier(s) and Haute Tension) or even over the top gore. A l'interieur is so messed up because it exists only to be a messed up hour of torture. http://thesketchydetails.net/archives/7782

Here's a link to a piece I wrote a long time back on The Sinful Dwarf, on of the most f**ked up movies I've seen. http://www.kl5film.com/2009/06/sinful-dwarf-1973.html

No need to take dibs, just discuss the film in your way lol. Can't wait to hear what you think!

At the top of my head, most f*cked up movies~~~ these come to mind:
Sex Zen 3D
and Caterpillar

even though neither of them are strictly horror films, they have their fair amount of WTF is going on... one more dramatic than the other.

Hi Nick,

I've just compiled a list of films that messed me up during childhood as part of my Friday Five's feature.

Here's the link: http://benendsbasement.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/friday-fives-5-most-disturbing-movies.html

And thanks for putting Martyrs up!

This is a fantastic idea! (Just saw the plug on LAMB)

 
At October 5, 2012 at 9:18 AM , OpenID mettelray said...

Interesting! I had no idea at first, since I usually stay away of the genre of horror, but Elwood pointed out something interesting as far as perspective goes.. I might write something for this in relation to when I was a kid and saw this so called f*cked up movie that as an adult is completely normal. Would this count? It would be a different prospective but I would think it would be fun to write about it.

Actually... the review for Caterpillar is done by Julyssa. xD We have several writers, and some of them might pop up in here with their movies...

 
At October 5, 2012 at 3:18 PM , Blogger Nick said...

I'll fix it!

 
At October 5, 2012 at 3:18 PM , Blogger Nick said...

I'll get it posted!

 
At October 5, 2012 at 3:19 PM , Blogger Nick said...

Does that mean you're going to write something? lol. If so, look forward to it!

 
At October 5, 2012 at 3:19 PM , Blogger Nick said...

It would most certainly count! Just as long as you talk about the twisted-ness lol

Thought I would invite everyone to read my article I posted at my website on Deviant Cinema: A Deviant Definition. More of an overview....I'll post a list on my website probably over the weekend.

Hey, you asked for it. I could have linked to so many more...

I've mentioned this to you before, but Excision. It was done artistically and everything, but I think some things are supposed to be left alone.

Link it!

Nick, have you seen Eden Lake ? I didn't review it, but that's the most disturbing horror film I've ever seen. At the time, I wanted to slap the director for creating those evil torture scenes, which potentially could inspire copycats.

 
At October 28, 2012 at 10:12 AM , Blogger Nick said...

I've seen it, it's pretty creepy and has f**ked up moments but I have seen a lot worse lol.

Hi there. I'm Camiele from YAM Magazine. So, one of my favourite films of all time is Ichi the Killer. I wrote a review for it over at YAM because, you know, it's one of the most disgusting films ever made.

http://www.yam-mag.com/reviews/film-reviews/ichi-the-killer/

I also wrote something about the film Se7en over at my blog, Madasa Writing. It's second only to Ichi in terms of being the nastiest, filthiest film of all time!
