Top 10 Disturbing Movies

Right off I want to explain that when I say disturbing, I do not mean scary horror disturbing I mean, creepy hair eating disturbing. These are the kind of movies that if you are feeling sad and vulnerable before watching, they could very well destroy any hope you may have for weeks. A good deal of these were shown to me by one friend in particular during college...

10. It

I seriously considered putting The Rocky Horror Picture Show on this list, but even though Tim Curry in fishnet stockings is disturbing enough to make you wish you were not human, it's nothing compared to watching him as the scariest clown on earth devouring children using multiple layers of sharp teeth. Besides Curry, this movie features pretty awful acting, but don't worry you can laugh at them and have nightmares about him for a full 3 hours and 12 minutes of eye soar terror. A group of young misfit teenagers come across a mythological terrifying legend of their town and are terrorized by it's memory until 30 years pass and it returns.

9. Eyes Wide Shut

Yes it is Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in a love story for the ages...only it's directed by Kubrick. Kubrick has brought us the classics of Spartacus and Paths of Glory....and he has also brought us The Shining, 2001's character Hal and later to be mentioned Clockwork Orange. Eyes Wide Shut is a psychological thriller that is masked by make up, pretty people and oh yes...masks. Tom Cruise plays Dr. WilliamHarford, who married to Kidman , thinks he has an ordinary life, until the night when the world turns on him. Every good thought turns to jealousy, mistrust and fear. Everyone on the street treats him like an inferior and his wife has fantasies about another man. The strange events of a single night reflect on his whole life and dares us to reflect on ours.

8. Natural Born Killers

Even though this film is about serial killers, it's not for this reason that it's recognized as a disturbing movie. Quite like Eyes Wide Shut, Natural Born Killers is disturbing because of the way it messes with your mind. The main two protagonists are actually antagonists. Through a strange kind of story telling we learn that Mallory was beaten and raped by her dad, had a child who was raised as her brother, and then rescued by a delivery man named Mickey, only it didn't end there. When he came back for her, the two of them brutally murdered her two parents and continued to murder while on the run from the cops. The movie gets you to think like they think and it shows how even the perceptually innocent news reporter can be lead to kill without a flinch. Natural Born Killers is another psychological thriller...bring the peyote...

7. Blue Velvet

The dark, twisted aloof mind of David Lynch sadly never rests as this terrible in many ways than one plagues the silver screen. His mockery of the classic story arc is only amplified when Dennis Hopper won't stop screaming. The surrealism will haunt your dreams if you dare try to make sense out of this dazzlingly dreary crime drama. There's no need for a plot description when the one that is in place only exists for show in the mind of Mr. Lynch.

6. Pink Flamingos

I believe that sometimes the most disturbing nightmares that enter my mind while I'm sleeping are so intoxicatingly putrid because they are filled with many details from the real world with electronic color, all mixed together with absolutely no purpose or plot. I wake up horrified and then relieved that my life makes sense. Pink Flamingos is about....go see it and tell me. There's an egg man, a very large grotesque man dressed as a dragon lady sucking on a penis, a very large mentally challenged mother who sits in a children's play pen, oh and an anus that morphs in and out to the beat of a catchy tune. Absolutely horrifying and disturbing...See it now!

The top 5 disturbing movies, and other articles such as Devil Movies, James Bond Villains and Nerd Movies are just a few of soon to be long list of Top 10 Movies. Suggestions for more Top 10 Lists are also encouraged!!!

Ha Ha! My three kids were all terrified by the movie "It" and yet they were drawn to watching it whenever they could. Definitely agree that "disturbing" is not at all the same as "scary." Fun article!

You can add "Misery", starring James Caan and Kathy Bates to that list....

Misery is such a great movie, Bates' character is most definitively disturbed, and creepy...maybe it'll make a good entry for a list of torcher movies.

I have to agree. Misery was one movie that really disturbed me as the child. The sledgehammer... Oh thinking about it now gives me goosebumps.
