I have watched thousands of movies throughout my life and I am one of those folks who enjoys films from every single genre but in particular films that leave their mark on me long after I turn them off. I own well over 500 horror films and of those some are so disturbing that they have stuck with me to this day. Its worth noting that I am not a fan of gore and I am not a fan of films like HOSTEL which for me are nothing but torture porn. Gore for the sake of gore does nothing for me but movies with intricate stories and truly disturbing content and messages not only resonate with me but leave me truly terrified. This list is the 10 Most Disturbing films that offer enticing stories, great characters, and most of all a truly terrifying experience.
Hard Candy: Starring Ellen Page this movie much like The Lost relies on the jaws effect for most of its terror but its still one of the most disturbing films you can see. It tells the story of a young teen who is befriended by an older man with evil intentions. Things quickly spiral out of control as the young girl played by Ellen Page decides whether she wants to be the victim or the victimizer. Intense and dark its a great thrill ride that twists and turns throughout leaving you wondering who is going to end up the victim and who will survive.
