Human Centipede & A Serbian Film are very tame IMO. Cant understand what's so shocking about them.

I took them as light comedic entertainment.

I was more shocked with the kids movie Marley & me... which was shockingly boring.

I once had the misfortune to catch some of a film on the Horror Channel called The Sinful Dwarf, an apparently Swedish effort from the 70s. It didn't seem to have an identifiably linear 'film structure', just instead appearing to be a series of random sex scenes with tits wobbling all over the shop whilst the most ugly, baleful looking vertically challenged man lurked and leered around these proceedings, presumably with some kind of sadistic and/or murderous intent to qualify the film's somewhat bemusing genre status as 'horror'. The whole seediness of the milieu, amateurish and artlessness shooting style replete with ugly, overly-proportioned people and lurid displaying of frightful growlers, and general feeling of both thematic and technical sleaziness really repulsed me, even though I couldn't stop watching for a while.

It's not a horror film, but I found Harry Brown (the Michael Caine film) to be very disturbing, and also very sad, because some people really do have to live in the same situation as Harry Brown.
It is a brilliant film to watch, although not an easy one. The scenes in the warehouse with the drug dealers etc was very graphic; although I must admit I cheered when Harry Brown shot the druggie scumbags.

Had a look on Netflix at Human Centipede 2 and frankly cannot see what the fuss is about. If this is a film which was at one time deemed too horrific for grown adults to watch then quite honestly those people have problems.

I don't know if this is the most shocking ever, but Funny Games (the original German version) contains a lot of sadistic violence. More disturbing in many ways than the average gory horror film.

Just found Human Centipede on Syfy channel, 45 mins in.

May watch a little bit to see what all the fuss is about. Probably wont watch it all as so far it doesnt look great. Kind of B movie-ish.

Someone said i should watch Inbreds. Has it's moments but it's a bit mehh really. I told my daughter if she went to Yorkshire, that's exactly what it's like. More of a fly-on-the wall docu-soap than a film

There was a notorious underground film on VHS in the early 80's called "Animal Farm"(we are not talking George Orwell here) that I think has pretty much become known as the most shocking and disgusting film ever made!

Schindlers list not because it was necessarily gory but just thinking what happened to those people in the war.....sometimes things are stronger if they arent shown.....

Recently i watched parts of the Kill List which they have been showing recently on Film 4....i couldnt watch it...very over the top violence and very weird......

also when i was younger cant even remember the name of it but a well know film.....which maybe was possiblytaxi driver with the chainsaw in the shower .....just turned off couldnt watch it......

also when i was really young ...The Theatre of Blood with Vincent Price......have never looked a Poodle in the same way again since (it was a sorta weird comedy/horror)

That would be Scarface I imagine. The sequence in question is interesting as the then censor demanded a cut. Didn't remove any of the action or subsequent gore, just removed the baddie saying, "and now the leg". Censors can be odd at times.

When I saw it on Syfy I immediately thought of this thread.

I gave it a try but wasn't too impressed. A fairly standard story but based on a gross idea that just feels wrong to have a film about it.
It wasn't too visually gratuitous like I thought it might be, I was instead rather indifferent to it all. It was just my imagination that left a bad taste in my mouth, but after about half an hour I was happily eating again.

There's a recent Australian film with a similar serial-killer-on-road premise, which makes me wonder if there's a real life Australian serial killer. Does anyone know?
I'd imagine most countries have or have had serial killers. Here's what wiki lists for Aus:

David and Catherine Birnie: also known as "Moorhouse murders"; couple from the suburban Perth area responsible for the murders of four women
Gregory Brazel: shot dead a woman in 1982 armed robbery and murdered two prostitutes in 1990
John Bunting, Robert Wagner and James Vlassakis: also known as "Bodies in the Barrels Murders"; convicted of the Snowtown murders of 11 people between 1992 and 1999
Eric Edgar Cooke: also known as "The Night Caller"; killed at least 8 people; last person to be hanged in Western Australia
Paul Denyer: also known as "Frankston Killer"; murdered three women in 1993 in the Melbourne suburb of Frankston
Peter Dupas: serving three life sentences for multiple murders and rape charges
Kathleen Folbigg: murdered four of her infants
Leonard Fraser: also known as "The Rockhampton Rapist"; convicted of killing four women in Rockhampton, Queensland
John Wayne Glover: also known as "The Granny Killer"; British immigrant who killed six elderly women on Sydney's North Shore; committed suicide in 2005
Caroline Grills: also known as "Auntie Thally"; serial poisoner of five family members
Matthew James Harris: strangled a friend's brother, a female friend and a male neighbour to death over five weeks in 1998 in Wagga Wagga
Thomas Jeffries: Tasmanian penal colony escapee responsible for the murders of four people; executed in 1826
William MacDonald: also known as "the Mutilator"; killed at least five men between June 1961 and April 1963
John and Sarah Makin: late 19th century baby farmers who killed and buried 12 children at a succession of their homes
Ivan Milat: killed at least seven tourists in Belanglo State Forest, New South Wales; suspected in similar disappearances in Newcastle
Martha Rendell: killed three stepchildren with hydrochloric acid in the 20th century; last woman to be hanged in Western Australia
Arnold Sodeman: also known as the "School-girl Strangler"; killed four children in Melbourne in the 1930s
Christopher Worrell and James Miller: also known as the "Truro Murderers"; convicted of killing six victims

I think there were many versions of that edited together from various footage. There's a wiki page on Bodil Joensen and no shortage of that sort of material if people want it. I'm quite glad that I've never watched any.

I'd love to know what her opinion was? Possibly "Oh I hope there's a sequel"

This and its sequel really does suffer from over hyping on a scale not seen since the video nastie outrage bandwagon in the 1980s.

Yes, the concept is disturbing if one dwells upon it for a length of time, but none of it is real, it is done by actors in a set using low budget effects and well, both just left me faintly amused. Salo on the other hand by Pasolini. Makes me retch just thinking of it.

It depends on what you define as disgusting and shocking.

For disgusting it's any of the Hostel films (slash horror doesn't do it for me at all). Also Centipede 2, only seen clips and not my cup of tea (have seen the 1st film and that was ok.. was a very dark humour horror, reminded me a bit of an updated hammor horror movie).

For shocking then a film called The Strangers. I have managed to watch maybe 15mins then I get so freaked out I can't watch anymore ...

Also shocking (but one of my ALL time fav films) the Poughkeepsie tapes.
