Movies that SHOCKED Audiences!

Recommended Posts

Films always have the ability to anger us, divide us, shock us, disgust us, and more. Usually, films that inspire controversy, outright boycotting, picketing, banning, censorship, or protest have graphic sex, violence, homosexuality, religious, political or race-related themes and content. They usually push the envelope regarding what can be filmed and displayed on the screen, and are considered taboo, "immoral" or "obscene" due to language, drug use, violence and sensuality/nudity or other incendiary elements. Inevitably, controversy helps to publicize these films and fuel the box-office receipts.

 

Film censorship is almost as old as film itself. Nudity in film dates back to the 1800's.

 

Some of these movies would be considered "tame" by today's standards. However, some of them are still shocking.

 

In today's morally corrupt society, almost anything is acceptable.

 

This is a discussion thread for "shocking" movies.
