Most of these were really more cartoonish than bothersome (except for Irreversible), but the scene in City of God where the local gang leader forces the 8 year old boy to shoot the 10 year old, then asks him whether he would rather lose his hand or his foot while the even younger kids look on still gives me nightmares.

the 'curbing' scene in American History X is really disturbing for me

the scene in Platoon where the soldier kills the MR kid and the mother/aunt, followed soon by the rape scene- that is rough

the more plausible the situation the violence is couched in, the more disturbing it is for me. Things like Sin City and Kill Bill are fine for me because they seem ludicrous.

1980's Maniac with Joe Spinell. He was disturbing and terrifying in his role as a schizoid serial killer.

3 Extremes. The "Dumplings" vignette was sickening.

A french movie called Inside. I shut it off at the end because it was too much.

Violence, if it's only in spurts, isn't so hard. I just close my eyes. It's easier when it's unrealistic fantasy, like Total Recall, harder when it's closer to reality, for me. What's sometimes more difficult are movies that are pervaded by grief and tragedy. Two that come to mind are Wit and The Grey Zone. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to watch them again.

Although, conversely, I have no problem with repeated viewings of The Passion of Joan of Arc, although I cry right through the last 20 minutes.

"Sylvester & Tweety Pie"
The horrible things done to the cat were never justified. I hated that bird.

I enjoy violent movies but somehow the ear chopping scene in Reservoir Dogs just sickens me.

I have never been able to finish watching, "A Clockwork Orange". Sure, it doesn't have the fire balls and explosions and all that but that movie just makes me feel sick to my stomach.

I tried twice. I'm done trying. I hate it.
