Salo is a raw tale of sadistic immorality and sexual perversion. But really, what the hell do you expect? It's a truthful and honest movie adaption of the Marquis De Sade's classic novel of the same name, that was burned and banned for hundreds of years. But Salo does say a lot about the horrors of fascism and bourgeois decadence, so it's not pornographic just for the hell of it.

This movie is definitely on the inflammatory and traumatizing side of things. In fact, Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered before Salo was even released and luckily did not witness the intense backlashes and controversies surrounding the movie.
2. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)


Cannibal Holocaust- The name itself brings back bad memories of my viewing experience.

It's a super disgusting fever dream nightmare. There's tons of gore, the most nasty being the scene where a turtle gets graphically murdered and eaten. I felt the bile rise up in my throat as I watched. Just a warning- don't watch this if you're eating, just ate, or ever plan to eat ever again.
3. Ichi the Killer (2001)

From the crazy Asian director Takashi Miike, we get a warped, twisted gore overload of a mob film that would make even the most psychotic pervo sick to their stomach. The main character even cuts his own tongue off and enjoys masochistic beatings. Ichi is sex and violence combined into one all-encompassing bout of troubling cinema.
4. Audition (1999)

Another Takashi Miike flick. I actually did not find this film disturbing at all and I was like "what the hell do people get all worked up over this for?" But then came the last 30 minutes. Totally weird. Anyways, Audition is not really that sickening, but that's just my opinion.
5. Equus (1977)


This is a super underrated film with brilliant acting. It's very screwed up though because it's about a young man's strange sexual obsession with horses and his spiral into psychosis. This one's more psychologically disturbing and challenging.
6. Turkish Delight (1973)

This Dutch classic is far from your average love story. It's really sexually explicit, with full frontal shots of the lovely Rutger Hauer's dong, and has tons of vomit, blood, maggots and shit and a super depressing ending.
7. An Andalusian Dog (1929)

Luis Bunuel's short masterpiece is mostly known for its infamous shot of an eyeball being sliced open with a razor blade, but it has tons of other surreal and repulsive visuals that also stun and shock.


8. The Holy Mountain (1973)

When I first saw this film, I didn't know what to make of it. I still don't. The only way I can describe it- a psychedelic trip through hell.
9. El Topo (1970)

A bizarre, bloody, desert hallucination-like freakshow about a master gunfighter who destroys all his rivals.
10. Antichrist (2009)

Antichrist is visually stunning, but actually pretty boring. Until it starts getting really gory. But watching Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg having sex is disturbing enough already.
11. Irreversible (2002)

Gaspar Noe's sexually depraved flick is most well known for it's disgusting half hour rape scene where Monica Belluci's character is brutally violated and beaten beyond belief. Not only that, but there is a super sick continuous shot of a guy's skull being bashed in. It's a sight for sore eyes, I tell ya.
12. Enter the Void (2009)

This psychedelic visual feast for the eyes is much more than just gorgeous glossy tripping. It's a nasty, offensive nightmare of drugs, death and incest.
13. Naked Lunch (1991)

When I first watched Naked Lunch, I had no idea what to expect. I was just bored and wanted to watch any random movie. Next thing I knew, I was stunned to the core and totally sucked in. It horrified me though because I'm not scared of a lot, but bugs are really gross to me and this film has more than it's share of creepy crawling insects.
14. Videodrome (1983)

I love David Cronenberg. And this is one of his best, an extremely sadomascochistic barf bag that features a raunchy Debbie Harry and an arrogant James Woods dragged into a strange psychosexual murderfest.
15. Bad Lieutenant (1992)

Harvey Keitel gives an amazing perfomance as an anger crazed, drug addicted, corrupt asshole of a cop investigating the brutal rape of a young nun. Not for the faint of heart or mind.
16. The Devils (1971)


For some dumb reason, I decided to watch The Devils at night. I couldn't sleep because I was so revulsed by what I'd just seen. A sacrilegious, bloody, amazing nightmare tale of sexually repressed nuns who have a priest massacred for their delusions.
17. Repulsion (1965)

Roman Polanski's greatest 60s film features a beautiful young Catherine Denueve who descends into madness and murder when left alone. Tons of rotting flesh and insane fantasies in this manic flick.

This rare documentary is so unseen, mostly because it's been banned in America and many other countries, but this is as real as it gets. The Killing of America isn't just a movie made for childish entertainment, it's about the mass murderers, serial killers, assassins, criminals and other psychos who run loose in the world. It has real snuff footage of death and violence. After seeing a film like this you think, is there really any hope for us in this doomed violent world?
19. Faces of Death (1978)

Super controversial and freaky, this flick has some real death scenes and some fake ones, but those are still creepy too.
20. A Serbian Film (2010)

A truly fucked up story about a Serbian porn star who looks like David Spade. The guy ends up doing really sick shit after being manipulated and drugged, and he destroys his whole family in a crazy sort of way.

A gross low budget film about white trash gone mad. It's loosely based on real life serial killer partners Henry Lee Lucas and Ottis Toole.
22. Lilya Forever (2002)

Watching this made me sick. Lilya 4Ever is a sad, miserable film about a young girl reduced to prostitution after being abandoned by her own mother and abused by every asshole around her. Very difficult to get through without crying tears of blood.
23. Eraserhead (1977)

I'd say Eraserhead is the most disturbing film to me. It's so menacing and bizarre and unnerving. The deformed, bile spewing "baby" is the worst part.
24. Blue Velvet (1986)

David Lynch's movies are such a mindfuck. And Blue Velvet fucks you right in the ass with it's over the top weirdness. Seriously, what kind of loon dreamed up the script? Dennis Hopper gives an awesome perfomance as perv psycho Frank Booth.

The Wall is very trippy and forces you think about the existential emptiness of life. Pink Floyd is my fave band, but even the soothing music couldn't distract me from the disturbingly vivid visuals. It really gets to ya.

This film is fucking cray and out of this world. And intense with a white hot heat and urgency. Leatherface is probably the most scariest slasher villain of all time. Who else hangs human beings up on meat hooks and cuts off faces and uses them as terrifying flesh masks? His whole family of inbred psychotic cannibal hicks is creepy. Just imagining being chased by a loony with a chainsaw gives me chills.
27. Dead Ringers (1988)

A nutty flick about twin gynecologist bros who lose their shit completely and spin out of control. Kind of reminds me of Persona, but 20 times more disturbing.
28. Crash (1996)


This one's really pervy, with lots of bizarre sex because it's about people with boners for car accidents. Watch it if you have a dirty, filthy mind.
29. Lost Highway (1997)

Creepy confusing David Lynch. Robert Blake is crazy fucking scary.
30. Man Bites Dog (1992)

A screwed up satire about a serial killer who'll murder anyone he can get his hands on, for the most ridiculous and laughable reasons.

A night out gone totally wrong. Two teenage girls are kidnapped by a gang of psycho prison escapees, and are forced to do degrading things. They're killed shortly after. The revenge scene by the parents is wicked.
32. Caligula (1979)


I really love Malcolm McDowell, and this is one of his classic films so I had to see it. Plus, I'm nuts about Ancient Roman history. I really did not expect to watch a demented melee of porn and gore. Caligula is really visually astonishing though. Roman decadence at its finest.


When I heard about the story for this movie, I just could not stop laughing. A crazed doctor who glues people's assholes and mouths together to make a human centipede? LOL! Well the joke was on me because it wasn't funny at all. It was fucking disgusting.

Why, why in the hell would they make a second movie? Why did I even watch it??? Well, this one's more screwed up than the first one. A fat, ugly, mentally disturbed guy rounds up even more people to make an uber-gigantic centipede. Tons of sick gore that made me want to vomit my guts out.
35. Pink Flamingos (1972)



This is a really dumb film. But I can't help but love it. Trashy tranny Divine and her equally trashy family endure blazing escapades and rivalries, celebrate Divine's birthday and have their trailer burned down. Oh yeah, how could I forget the coolest part! Divine eats shit at the end. REAL dog shit.


Rape, murder and revenge. But seriously, the rape scene was agonizing long and excruciating. It makes the revenge all the more satisfying though because those dickhead rapists deserved to die. I Spit On Your Grave is a contradiction, not sure if it's sexist or feminist.

Ilsa is a Nazi sexploitation classic, with tons of torture and blood. Oh, those crazy, horny Nazis!
38. Freaks (1932)

Freaks is awesome because director Tod Browning (who also made Dracula with Bela Lugosi) used real circus freaks. Pinheads, armless legless wonders, midgets, bearded women, conjoined twins, contortionists, strongmen, you name it, this film's got it.
39. The Machinist (2004)


What an insane and out of control film. The ending just punches you in the face. And to see the always handsome Christian Bale look so anorexically skinny- man that's a kick in head!
40. The Fly (1986)


Jeff Goldblum plays a brilliant scientist on the verge of a revolutionary discovery that transports objects to other places. But when he tries to test the machine on himself, shit gets fucked. Why? There was a fucking fly in there!! He begins to morph into a fly himself in a gruesome, utterly grotesque metamorphoses. David Cronenberg directs The Fly masterfully, and manages to make it extremely disgusting and super vile.
41. The Exorcist (1973)

This legendary horror film has scared the shit out of millions of people around the world. So why would it not be on this list? Projectile vomit, demonic possessions, flashing seizure images, a freaky exorcism, a hideous scabby faced rotten-toothed young girl who kills priests....Leave the lights on when you watch this one!
42. Mysterious Skin (2004)


Pedophilia, rape, prostitution. Mysterious Skin is definitely on the sleazy side of things.

This is another one of those films that nearly made me lose my lunch. Helen Mirren plays an abused wife, always in a constant gut wrenching fear of her psychotic gangster of a husband. She and her husband always visit the same restaurant every week, and she begins leaving during meals to cheat on him with some random guy. They have sex in the godamn meat locker. Yuck. And she comes back like nothing happened. But when he finds about the affair, that's when it gets real sick.
44. Jigoku (1960)


This is definitely the most vivid representation of hell I've ever seen in a film. Very violent and shit your pants scary! The images that flashed before me in Jigoku are too macabre to forget...
45. Re-Animator (1985)

It's so awesome how gory Re Animator is. Jeffrey Combs portrays the greatest mad scientist ever conjured up in someone's foul mind, and he'll stop at nothing to continue his hideous experiments, no matter what cost.
46. Deliverance (1972)

This is a nice film about a bunch of guys going for a manly vacation in the woods. Until a bunch of crazy hicks and nature screws them over. The "I bet you can squeal like a pig. Weeeeeeee!" scene is especially fucked.
47. Bad Timing (1980)

Another sexually explicit film I regret watching. A screwed up couple who keep bitching and fighting and making up, a frightfully horrid Harvey Keitel, and Art Garfunkel engaging in necrophilia- bring me a barf bag man.
48. Straw Dogs (1971)

Dustin Hoffman plays a nerdy dude who gets pushed too far and goes apeshit. Also features a nasty rape scene. Sam Peckinpah was a total misogynist.

Martin Scorsese directs this bloody and trippy vision of Jesus' life and death, and Willem Dafoe plays him brilliantly. I don't get why people shit themselves over it being "sacrilegious." If I'm an atheist and can enjoy this, can't a Christian who actually believes in this kind of stuff? Jesus being portrayed with imperfection is realistic.
50. Midnight Cowboy (1969)

Jon Voight plays a prostitute and Dustin Hoffman stars as his sickly pimp in this gritty flick about tough life in New York. Really goddamn depressing.
