Movies that are just plain BRUTAL
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
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...
