"An American Crime" about the 1965 torture slaying of sixteen year old Sylvia Likens. Disturbing and true.

Great thread. I've spent the last few days watching some of these. Quite a range of frightening, disgusting, disturbing and/or downright weird stuff.

I've never heard of it. Is this an old movie or a recent movie? If it's a true crime story then I'll definitely check it out.

A few years old. An indie film. It stars Ellen Page as Sylvia, and Katherine Keener as Gertrude Baniszewski, the woman who initiated the torture.

There is a true crime book about the topic called "House of Evil"

What happened to the poor girl in real life was much, much worse.
What will drive you crazy is that this monster served only 20 years for this horrific crime.

Also disturbing, her chief tormenters were children and teens who were told to inflict horrible pain on this poor girl. It took her three months to die.

If anybody has seen the "fire hydrant" scene in "Irrevirsible," that was pretty sick too.
I found Human Centipede to be quite tame and almost campy, though the idea of it is disturbing.

The entire club scene in Irreversible was sick and tense, though I found the 12+ minute rape and beating scene harder to sit through. Still a great movie.

The decadence portrayed in "Pulp Fiction" bothered me a lot.

American History X
Affliction (with Nick Nolte)

I watch tons and tons of movies, including lots of horror and independent film and craptastic B-movies, but these are the only two movies that bothered me enough that I wouldn't watch them again. Unless you count Moulin Rouge, but that's because the camera swoop made me queasy.

Carnival of Souls - original 1962 version - very creepy

Carnival of Souls is a 1962 independent horror film starring Candace Hilligoss. Produced and directed by Herk Harvey for an estimated $33,000, the film did not gain widespread attention when originally released, as a B film; today, however, it is a cult classic. Set to an organ score by Gene Moore, Carnival of Souls relies more on atmosphere than on special effects to create a mood of unease and foreboding. The film has a large cult following and is occasionally screened at film and Halloween festivals. It has been cited as an important influence on the films of both David Lynch and George A. Romero.
