Your emotions and sanity will be tested. You've been warned...

You will get scared, cringe, and become fearful and sad. How much can you really take is totally up to you. You can easily turn off the DVD or Blu-ray player, but I can guarantee you that these 2 films will never leave your mind.

Irréversible - Right out of the gate, the opening scene will leave you speechless. The film is filled with vivid reenactments, pain, torture, and so much more. This film is at the top of my list because it contains scenes that literally made me look away and cringe. It is infamous for reenactment. This film is as real as it gets; if you have a weak heart, you'd better turn away to save yourself from the realization that this film is going straight for realism. Also, Irréversible is shot from a very unique POV (point of view). The camera is always moving quite fast; if you're not careful, the swaying of the camera can make you dizzy and nauseous. This film is one of a kind. I can honestly say that this film is hardcore and definitely not for the faint of heart. If you feel like giving this film a try, go ahead... but you have been warned. Viewer discretion is advised. 

Martyrs - Your eyes will be closed for the majority of this film. Why, you ask? Well, the scenes in this film - let's just say - have very good special effects in them. The story is twisted and crazy; the pain people endure is beyond any rational thinking, and the characters in these films are set up for failure. A life that is filled with misery, tears, sadness, and loneliness Movies that are just plain BRUTAL
makes a young lady very confused and breathe hatred. The only thing that can fix her broken, crushed, and twisted heart is revenge. How can the world be so cruel when she has done nothing to deserve it? What can she do? Well, there is one thing. That's to simply give the cruelty back to the world. Martyrs is a very graphic film. Viewer discretion is advised.

These films will have your heart racing...



Here's a few you might not have heard or seen yet:
-We are what we are(Spanish version)
-V/H/S and V/H/S partII
-Haute Tension
-Battle Royale
-Hostel partI only
-Old Boy
-The Raid
-The Girl Next Door(based on Jack Ketchum's book)
-The Cabin in the Woods

There's quite a bit more that are released straight to video or DVD so some can be difficult to find.

Battler royal, v/h/s 1 & 2, hostel, old boy (korean version) & cabin in the woods are very good recommendations. There others' sound really good, I will check them out. I have a lot more movies that are even more brutal then those in this blog but, did not include them cause there not in the dpl system. If you would like to know more, let me know

Sure I'm always interested when it comes to this genre, let me know of a few more that you like and I'll check them out.

Salo, or the 120 Days in Sodom, A Serbian Film, Cannibal Holocaust, The Human Centipede II, Inside, old boy (original), antichrist, I saw the Devil and battle royale. Just to name a few

OMG! They made a Human Centipede II! The first one was bad enough. I mean it was good, but it was very hard to watch. I don't even want to think about what HCII is all about.

I watched The Ice Man this weekend on Netflix. Very quiet but overall good film. I would suggest to any mob film fan.

Thank you Ravenskye for you feed back. if you have any more let us know.

Are these films any more than horror/shock pornography? Is there any substance to them or do they simply appeal to the voyeur/sadist? I have seen Saw and a revolting film called the Human Centipede and would happily un-see them if that were possible. I suppose this blog is intended for aficionados of this genre, and I would love to hear a critical review that can give us all some idea why one would want to experience these films.

TDub, I would'nt really classify "Irreversible" as horror/shock porn. It was discussed on an IFC series about sex in movies, and the boundaries that are moved. The star, the beautiful Monica Bellucci, who you may remember from "the Matrix" as Persphone. She is violently sexually assaulted and you are not spared. Her exes then take revenge for her. It was hard for me to watch, and sorry to say I could not finish the movie. I did try. However the topic IFC discussed was seeing a woman as physically and sexually attractive as Monica Bellucci abused and seeing her later in the film after the attack, is she still perceived as an appealing woman or is your perception of her now altered by watching her attack. I love MB because she is usually in movies where sexuality and perception are not black and white but many shades of grey. such as "Malena" by Guiseppe Sulfaro. If you've already seen Irreversible and thought it was shock porn I guess that's what's great about movies everyone has a different take, which is awesome.
