    Yeah. That's why "maybe not" was a valid option.
    I did watch HC2. I can't say that was much better.

    I did see most of Rob Schneider's "The Animal." That was disturbing, but in a completely different way.

    EDIT: Oh good god. Look what is releasing on May 22. With Eric Roberts??

    You know, I have to wonder about the mental state of the people who write movies like A Serbian Film or Human Centipede. Or the people who are involved in the making of them. I mean, duh, the movies aren't real. But how do they reconcile themselves to the subject matter? I know I couldn't be involved in the making of any of those films, for any amount of money. I'm not sure how I'd be able to live with myself.

    Yeah... considering how much time and energy and money you have to invest to put a movie like that together. I don't understand the point of why Tom Six is doing a third, except perhaps trying to make his movies like a centipede (apparently the plot moves from one movie to the next to the next). I will say, watching HC2, I thought it was just a big huge FU to the fanbase that might have enjoyed the first one... I honestly felt like he was making fun of them, especially with the ending. [The first one sucked too. I happened to walk in when someone else was watching it, and was just like wtf? It wasn't just horrific, it was bad/stupid from a plot/character behavior POV.]

    I wouldn't want to be in those movies either.

    I remember getting into comics, though in the 80's, and there was a huge current of gore/horror mags (Fangoria?), its own little industry of publishing and movies and whatever else. I was never really into that and had trouble understanding the excitement of the fan base.

    I'm just glad it's a fictitious story.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11

    Meh.. I rarely encountered movies that scared me.

    I started watching horror movies at a young age of 5, and I watched those movies after midnight too. I guess I have de-sensitized myself to scary movies, so no matter what movies I watched, it doesn't really scare me.

    The Skeleton Key.

    I was in a really bad head-space at the time which made it a lot worse, but I still would have been very messed up from it regardless.

    Yes, that's straight horror, not horror as genre.

    Wow. Did a quick scan of Wiki page and enough words popped out for me to consider bleaching my eyeballs.

    I did find this useful collection which could act as a shopping list for the crazier among us:
    The 50 Most Disturbing Movies of All Time | Complex

    "Audition" and "Requiem for a Dream" made their top ten.

    Maybe I'll watch the original Funny Games instead.
    Great find!!

    I've been thinking about what makes a movie "disturbing" for me, and I was looking through the list, and there are quite a few that I've watched, but I can't recall any one *scene* that imprinted in my mind, for a lot of them. Which...is disturbing....about what it perhaps says about my mind and how it interprets and reacts to things. Threshold of "disturbing", as it were.

    I had watched A Serbian Film years ago, and for the life of me, I can't remember any one scene that stood out as truly horrific or memorable due to its horrific-ness. I vaguely remember a scene where

    I think that's the thing about this film; it's that it is so gory, without very little exploration of the human pyche, that it all just melds into one giant gore-fest, which can be easily forgettable, for me.

    ***
    Mental exercise

    Of the top ten, I've watched, what I can recall of those films:

So intelligent and relevant! Love the whole angle of, 'let's just take this to its logical (extreme) conclusion...and see what that looks like!'

    This, what Jen said below, is exactly it. You can't give away the plot without messing with the punchline. Just go in with a clean slate, and let the story (each episode is a self-contained story) do to you, what it will/what you took away.

    I highly recommend it. It's not scary but a mindfuck.
    I thought this was a really eloquent send up of that show. I remember thinking a couple of times that watching Black Mirror now must have been what watching Twilight Zone in the 60s must've been like. Similarly, there may be something of a double edge sword to just how impeccably that show manages to capture the zeitgeist in that--like TZ--some episodes may age better than others. It'll be something interesting to rewatch 10 years from now.

    I'd tell you there's no need to be a hero, but honestky, if you're gonna do it, might as well.

    You and I have had convos elsewhere about how 2015 has been shaping up to be a pretty great year for horror. We have The Witch in theaters soon, which was up there with It Follows as one of the top rated horror films of all time on Metacritic). I'm also looking forward to seeing Goodnight, Mommy, which is an Austrian joint that I think debuted in North America at Toronto. Trailers have a Jacobs Ladder meets Funny Games feel to it with an Oedipal twist just to keep shit interesting.
