"Most Unwatchable"


Recommended Posts

I ran across this list on Bloody Disgusting (which credits BuzzFeed) of the "Most Unwatchable Horror Films Ever Made". By unwatchable they don't mean awful (although more than a few on this list are, in my opinion), but the most gut-wrenching, brain-searing depravities. How many have you seen, and are there others that you can think of that should be on the list?

  1. Martyrs (2008)
  2. A Serbian Film (2010)
  3. Nekromantik (1987)
  4. Atroz (2015)
  5. Excision (2012)
  6. The Human Centipede series (2009, 2011, 2015)
  7. Salo, or 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
  8. I Spit on Your Grave (1978)
  9. Inside (2007)
  10. Grotesque (2009)
  11. Megan Is Missing (2012)
  12. Dead Alive (1992)
  13. Guinea Pig series (1980-1990)
  14. Naked Blood (1996)
  15. Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
  16. August Underground series (2001, 2003, 2007)

 

I've seen MartyrsThe Human Centipede, SaloI Spit on Your GraveInside (which I like a lot but it doesn't belong on this list), Dead Alive (neither does this one), Cannibal Holocaust, and August Underground (absolute garbage). I've seen Nekromantik 2 but not the first one. I had never heard of AtrozExcisionGrotesqueMegan Is Missing, or Naked Blood.

I give the "prize" to Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, definitely. I saw it once and I haven't seen it since.

I would add Saw, I never "got" the movie, so I thought it was graphic gore for the sake of graphic gore.

A Serbian Film I've seen, and The Human Centipede, hard movies to watch, but not as unpleasant as the other two that I mentioned above.

I've always been curious about "Salo" because it's suppose to be art not a torture porn.  The first "Saw " movie is not bad but the rest of the series is crap.  I would have to add the unpleasant and homophobic "Hostel" which is unpleasant  and not scary.

Salo is an odd film. Its notorious reputation leads to disappointment for many first-time viewers who have been led to believe that it's some kind of unspeakable grotesquerie. It's much more high-minded and intellectual than the other films on this list. Time has also rendered a lot of the shocking elements less so. 

I recommend it, but be prepared more for an art film with a leisurely pace than a shock-and-awe thriller or horror spectacle.

It's Passolini not "Ten Thousand Maniacs"

The silliest scene in Salo has to be the pagan gay wedding in which the evil torturers in  drag marry studly young men- the priest is dressed up like an extra in a Maria Montez picture- seriously were people shocked by this in 1976?!
