    Yeah, I had that thought too. And I had the feeling that the main actor, this surgeon guy, was not playing a role. He was for real...

    Unfortunately by the time I got around to watching it I already knew what it was going to be about so it didn't come as as much of a shock. But it was still disturbing.

    For me I would say it was the original version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I don't think I got more than a half hour into the movie before I stopped watching and have never watched the rest.

    Hey! Great! Thanks! I enjoyed reading all of your responses.

Actually I liked Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the Michael Bay remake) and Wrong Turn but The Hills have Eyes remake... too depressing a watch
    I'm not much for torture porn either, or extreme gore but I'll watch it if its story interests me. I saw the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre several times before I watched the remake. It honestly wasn't bad. It's the only Micheal Bay film I like. I also saw the original THHE's. There's something about 70's horror. That was the decade that started things off when film-makers were really pushing the envelope.

    Favorite horror movies of mine that are definitely the purpose of film as art are: Nosferatu, The Excorcist, The Shining, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jacobs Ladder, Session 9, The Thing (Remake), Alien etc. But I've re-watched those. I could not re-watch High Tension. It wasn't even really just the gore but the whole atmosphere and the beginning and end shattered me. The subjects were just... *shudders*

    Eden Lake makes me angry. Funny games, too.

    Torture porn is not my thing anymore. It bores the hell out of me. I want to see something spooky, or a great mystery.
    Did Funny Games make you angry because of what happened in it? Or that it was made? Just wondering. I saw the Australian remake with Naomi Watts and Tim Roth. I did not see the original German version yet. I thought it was a well made film but yes, there is a particular scene with the boy that I cant think about... uh, vagueness is for spoilers. Aaand you answered it.

    Henry: Portrait of a serial killer.

    There's no hero in the movie, nobody you can really cheer for, just nasty people doing nasty things. Even the stories the main character has about his past come across as at least partial lies. The movie starts with Henry killing people and in the end, he's still out there. There's not even a hint that anybody even notices enough to try to bring him to justice.

    The whole thing just has a very greasey dirty feel to it.
    I saw this years ago with a friend. I don't really remember all that much as I was half asleep (not from bordem). We saw it after Dahmer. There was a while there where I was watching way to many things about serial killers/killers after the child murderers I really had to stop. I was obsessed with reading/watching dark material. I got way too deep into it. Now if I do I balance it with other things.

    Along this line...

    Videodrome

    While it's exactly a film that runs right to "Disturbing"/"Gory", it gives me the exact same case of the creeps every single time. Not sure there is even one redeemable character in the film.

    Salo or the 120 days of sodom and/or Cannibal holocaust

    and the wierd part is: they aren't Shocking/disturbing for the shock itself but to deliver a point

    Cannibal Holocaust was pretty much the Serbian Film of its day.

    Good to know I'm not the only one who doesn't like torture porn. I can remember watching Hostel and having to turn it off. The same thing with the Wrong Turn movie(s).

    I don't mind the occasional slasher film, and certainly don't mind zombie stuff. Perhaps it's because torture porn can be too similar to real life. Let's be honest, you're never going to hear about a zombie invasion, or a killer returning from the dead umpteen time to claim more victims.

    But in real life we've heard of Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Dennis Lynn Rader (the BTK killer). Torture Porn movies can be too close to real life.

    Jacobs Ladder and Session 9 is closer to psychological horror than outright horror. But they are very effective. The endings of both are some of my favorites in horror history. What both films don't do is rely on gore but atmosphere and imagry and with Session 9 add music. The way its used gives me chills just thinking about it. Both movies have great acting too and they are both kind of open in that it leaves you some questions as to what really happened, people have different ideas, but not in a way that you feel cheated. Just a warning Nosferatu is a silent film from 1922 but a lot more scarey than the Bela Lagosi films years later. It was ahead of its time and more modern films definitely borrowed from the Vampire look in that.

    Also, thanks for the recommendations.

    Actually, Wes Cravens first film Last House on the Left, the original, would have been the one if High Tension didn't edge it out. I don't recommend it. This just seems like something that would happen in the 60's 70's where you heard killers dropping off bodies on the routes in desserts. The cover is misleading and looks more like Friday The 13. The whole thing was morbid. It was too realistic, the acting could be seen as wooden but I saw it added more to the idea that they were dead souls. The amateur video look made it seem like a snuff film. I wouldn't recommend it and it might be triggering for some.

    The line is thin between an horror movie and a disgusting movie. The point of horror movies is to disturb you, to make you feel uneasy, after all.

    But, if you feel it, please go ahead…
