Have you viewed a scene in a film that has made you cringe with disgust (or maybe aroused), or have you seen something in a movie that has scarred your mind forever?

From the infamous chest-burster from Alien to the birth in Xtro, film-makers are always going to stretch the line of the cringe-worthy to the downright sick.

My favourite scene has to be the head-explosion* scene from Scanners - the use of real animal brains had a great effect on the scene.

*Not for the sensitive types. Also this thread is not for scenes which are meant to be funny & not for posting pics of real-life (please, think of the children) - its a thread for genuine discussion of different types of extremes that film-makers explore. If this thread has been done before - mods, please kill it now

Some scenes from horror movies used to really stay with me when I was a kid, but I don't remember them anymore.  I do remember that my sister had nightmares for months about the scene in Pet Sematary where the guy gets his achilles tendon cut.

Nowadays it's harder to be affected by it.  Like, I remember as a kid being absolutely terrified specifically by The Serpent And The Rainbow and The Stuff (I wasn't allowed to see too many horror movies; the first R rated movie I saw in a theater was At Play in the Fields of the Lord). But when I saw these two movies again years later, I was astonished at how lame and ineffectual they were.  They just weren't scary.  The head exploding scene from Scanners, when I see it now, seems too over the top.  I dig the head exploding scenes from Wild Zero, because you have to drink every time someone's head blows up...

There's this movie I was watching today called Guest House Paradiso that includes, almost at the end, a scene where  6 persons vomit green liquids for 8 minutes. In 30 seconds, you get a room full of vomit. In 4 minutes you get a hallway full of vomit. In 7 minutes you get 4 rooms and one hallway full of vomit. In 8 minutes you get a window broken by a ball of vomit. Still, the movie is hilariously bad. A guy, dressed in women underwear, begins dancing in a room. There's a dead cat in a kitchen. Two guys (in their late forties) enter a room with only a chef hat in their preciousss. Disgustingly funny.

Audition does have some disturbing scenes, indeed. I cant find any pictures that would sum up the film, so I'll leave it as this; Great Japanese horror film, not as much violence as some, but worth to watch out for.

Has anyone seen, 'The Fury'? Well, its not much except for the ultimate climax at the end of film.


I would like to know how Brian De Palma & the effects-team pulled it off, it was very intense - more so than Scanners'.

I don't remember the movie's actual title, since I saw only part of t on TV a while ago. It was disturbing enough to stick with me, though -- it was something about this kid in 1950's suburbia who's parents are cannibals. I specifically remember one of the kid's nightmares where his mother is try to get a bloody arm down the garbage disposal, then the arm come to life and starts flopping around, and blood starts just flowing out of the sink, refrigerator and everywhere.

At least, that's how I remember it. The passage of time may have rendered my memory of the scene apocryphal.

When the Nazi's get trashed by the Arc of the Covenant in "Raiders of the Lost Arc", especially the creepy dude with the hat, and how he melted.

A bunch of scenes from Resident Evil were creepy, like when they face off in the hallway of lasers.

And the way that guy screams in Gone With the Wind when they cut off his leg. That bothered me.

I must agree with ~Faze~ on this. He was quite spooky in the beginning. Later on I thought he was cool.

Something that really bothered me to watch was Alabama getting beat up in True Romance. I just found that so wrong. And a few scenes in American History X.
But probably the most disturbing thing I ever saw was a documentary about China where they had entire institutions just for stowing children away until they died (because of the quota, and people would rather have boys than girls). What I saw in that documentary made me both cry, shiver and cringe.
And also another documentary about the fur industry in which we saw hidden camera footage of cats and dogs being skinned alive (without anaesthesia) in the far east, just so the ladies can get to show off their fancy fur coats and whatnot. This one had almost the same effect on me as the above one did...
Of course, I reacted the way I did because these are real. This is our world, that looks so idyllic if we just remain oblivious to certain aspects.

The laser hallway scene was quite funny for me. The thought that if he had taken a single step back he would have survived really gets me laughing. Nobody say anything about my creepy fascination with Nightmare on Elm Street, but the scene when Johnny Depp is sucked into the bed in the first one really disturbed me.

Titanic. I was disgusted that I even cared about borrowing it.

The scene in Event Horizon where they play back the ship's log. The sight of the crew tearing themselves apart still haunts me today  frown

And all of Watership Down. That truly scarred me for life.

What shocked me?

I'd say one of the most shocking movie scenes is Fredo's death in Godfather II... another would be the Russian Roulette scene in The Deer Hunter. Maybe the air duct sequence in Alien...

The Nazis' deaths in ROTLA spooked me as a little kid, too. So did the guy after drinking from the wrong grail in The Last Crusade.

Resident Evil was funny. Why bother going down there? If there's an underground city no one knows about, and it suffers a disastrous fate... I say seal the place off and forget it happened. No one will know.... and then there will be no movie.

When I was young I always used to hide behind the sofa when those two headed beasts appearing in Willow - all rather disturbing.

Plus the endings of all the Indy films disturbed me too...  hmpf

Currently, the bit in Das Boot...well, nearly all of Das Boot really gets me. The scene I would actually hide behind a sofa for is the one where they torpedo the crippled ship only to find the British sailors are still aboard - it's just so harrowing.  frown

The film everyone loves to hate, 'I spit on your grave', did have me cringe for a bit - the infamous rape scene. Though the rest of the movie may be lacking much direction & shocks, its an alright B-grade revenge film.

Another film that did me in was, 'The Fly'. The scene where the ape was teleported through those capsules and comes out inside-out. That was a touch of cinematic-magic right there  wink. The rest of The Fly had some great moments, but it was mostly agonizing (not Cronenbergs' best). I'd like to see the original from Vincent Price though.

I know it's not a film, but has anyone here ever seen 'Happy Tree Friends'? It's basically Itchy and Scratchy, but a LOT more explicit and really disgusting.

I   love  happy tree friends. I've seen every ep. It's got everything! Blood spatter, severed limbs, and Petunia in particular has the best scream. Especially in that one ep where she gets set on fire and then Handy knocks a bucket of gasoline on her. Kudos to her voice actress!   evil laugh

What would have been funny for that scene were if the Alien said, "BUHHHHH!!" really loud. Now that would be some gooooood watchin'.

The only bad thing about that movie was the zombies. I hate slow zombies. Much like Dawn of the Dead, why can't zombies be smarter (besides the obvious - they're dead). I dont think i've ever seen a zombie-film when the actual zombies we're fast or smart - has anyone? Being dead doesn't give you a reason to be slow.   tongue

If zombies were smart, they wouldn't be zombies.  They'd be Stephen Hawking.  And slow zombies are part of the camp.  You can't have a movie like Wild Zero go spoiling the nod-nod-wink-wink homages by going and innovating with eloquent genius telepath flying zombies.  And did I mention there's a drinking game?

When I was a kid that scene in The Fly 2 (i think) when the guy turns into a gross slug creature creeped me out as did Steven King's IT.  I can't believe how lame they are now.
Nowadays the little girl coming out of the TV screen at the end of Ring scares me no-end.

The only scenes I can think of from this year:

The leg-shaving in Cabin Fever.

The eye-gouging in 28 Days later...

...and yes, 28 Days later had fast "zombies," but their illness was more like rabies or something. Still, those zombies were reasonably smart.

Yes, 28 Days Later, did have considerable fast zombies (thanks for reminding me - felt alittle stupid there), and so did Evil Dead (lacking on the smartness though).

Speaking of the dead, Vampires are "dead" and their considered to be smart. Maybe its something in the fangs that does it. Hmm. Or the taste of blood rather than delicous brains. *strokes non-existant beard*

Werewolves are fast and smart, too, at least smart like wolves, in that they have hunting skills that would put a human to shame, but I wouldn't copy off their math homework.  But they're not dead.

Also, speaking of the rape scene in I Spit on Your Grave, what's that recent movie with Monica Bellucci and the nine minute rape scene?  I haven't seen it, but I've heard it's very disturbing.
