I don't find 'Braindead' shocking at all (maybe a little disgusting though!). Obviously it's one of the goriest films ever made, but it's all done in a very tongue-in-cheek, almost cartoonish way, making it a bit less disturbing for me than something like 'Irreversible'. Still, it's one of my favourite horror films for that very reason!
BBFC put on their website that they considered giving Brain Dead a 15 rating when it came out due to the fact they didn't believe anyone would take it seriously-

I would imagine it would be a 15 now, given Evil Dead 2 is these days, presumably for the same "no one is taking this seriously" reason.

..When you have spent years on websites such as Rotten.com, Ogrish.com, LiveLeak and other sites ..there isn't really any film that can shock or disgust you after that, Reality is far scarier.

As regards one of the films I mentioned; "Snuff", I would confess to having seen that, as it can be seen in full on the Internet (if you google Snuff full film or Snuff full movie you will find it). It is supposed to have been inspired by the Charles Manson killings & contains a scene added onto it at the end where the film crew is shown. One of them talks a young woman into getting onto the bed with him, fully clothed, for a bit of lovemaking, having convinced her it isn't being filmed. She succumbs to his advances and when she does notice it is being filmed and tries to resist he gets the other film crew members to hold her down while he cuts her shoulder open with a knife as she screams hysterically. He then proceeds to cut one of her hands off and the fingers off her other hand and then disembowels her. Although admittedly the rest of the film isn't that strong, this is certainly the most horrible scene I've ever come across and, yes, I did know somebody else who'd seen it, and was disturbed by as he thought it might be actually real. I must stress though, that it's been proven not to be.
Are you talking about 1976 version shown here?- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072184/?ref_=fn_al_tt_2

The 'snuff' in Snuff was debunked as fakery and a mere crude PR stunt at the time of it's original US release. Only in the hysterical climate of the early 80s when there were a handful of useful idiot 'talking heads' putting their two penneth worth into the video nasty debacle did any kind of debate around its verisimilitude have cause to resurface, largely thanks to the UK's ignorance of the 'grindhouse' horror subculture prior to unregulated video bringing it to our high streets for the first time.

As for how 'disturbingly realistic' the footage might actually be, it really isn't. The techniques and effects seem antiquated even for the time, if you consider superior (and possibly still shocking to many) gore scenes from some films, such as Mario Bava's Bay Of Blood and Ken Russell's The Devils, at the very start of the 70s. The most grotesque thing about the scene for me was the hideous mugging, corpulence and sideburns of the actor playing the crew member supposedly bumping the girl off.

I was disturbed watching deliverance and even though I enjoyed Snatch. Felt sick at the part when Micky (Brad Pitt's) caravan was torched with his mum inside.

Also the scene in the film 7 pounds with Will Smith entering a bath of freezing cold water with a jellyfish disturbed me for days

Easy answer for me... Lucker the necropophagus. I am 30 I have been watching uncut horror films since age 8. Never before or since in 22 years have I seen a film that made me literally throw up for those who have not seen it I refer to a scene where the killer keeps a victim decomposing on his bed for weeks then in graphic on screen detail partakes of oral & physical sex with the corpse. The make up is so alike a genuine decomposing corpse I vomited & would never EVER watch that film again!

Came across an obscure film on the Horror Channel called 'Adam Chaplin' a few weeks back. Sounded a fairly harmless title and I'd missed the first 20 mins so didn't really have much of a clue what was going on.
Sheesh talk about a bloodfest. I didn't know whether to laugh at the gore or be appalled. But I found it strangely fascinating.

I waited and waited for it to be on again, then on a trip to some random HMV (since my local one is gone) I saw it for £5 and couldn't resist but buy it.

There's not much of a plot. which seems to be....

The film is more appealing in a visual sense, like a real-life anime, with probably the most shocking scene being where...

It's certainly entertaining though if you take it in good humour.

Have you seen I spit on your grave 2? I have watched a few hard core thriller and horror films in my time but there was one part in this movie that made me nearly pass out. I won't spoil it for anyone that hasn't seen it but it's right near the end of the move. It's one of those parts that once you have seen it you cannot un see it and it stays in your head for days after. I couldn't watch that part again that's for sure and I have seen alot of gory and disgusting movies.

But not in the British version, as it's been cut.

I think writers who think of these disturbing films need counselling. I can't understand why they try to pass these off as artistic when they're not. But do we need sickening films to influence the nut jobs out there by glorifying rape and murder?
I love horror films and have done since I was a kid. I also work in the industry, but these films aren't art nor horror films. Just someone acting out a disturbed writer's mind.

All 3 of the I Spit On your Grave films are censored in the UK.
All 3 out in the US on Bluray uncut .

Not sure why they cut the remake as you don't even see most of the rapes like you do in the original .
The 1978 film remains one of the few video nasties that are still censored in the UK .
Even Cannibal Holocaust is now almost uncut

Well, clearly Tracy Beaker tops everything mentioned so far

Don't know if they are designed that way, but most Horror movies, well seem a bit 'naff'

Rather than scaring, most of them are pretty funny

Or maybe i'm a total psycho

I think the most sickening films are those that contain real deaths.
Many of the Italian cannibal type films contain genuine animal cruelty and killing and some of it is bad .
But the BBFC reached a decision to include most of it in Cannibal Holocaust .
The turtle killing is hard to watch but they justified it by saying it was a quick kill.
Yet a few horsefalls in 40 and 50 year old westerns get cut which means the studios won't release many films here due to the need to produce a unique version just for the UK.

Definitely the worst I've seen for sheer bad taste is a series of films called Traces of Death ( not the infamously faked Faces of Death).
These are compilations of real life death taken from news reports and other sources.
The first volume was refused a release by the BBFC .
It contains footage of the famous onscreen gunshot suicide of a local councillor in the US - and its lovingly played over several times from different angles.
Another scene showed someone on a racetrack being hit by a Formula 1 type car and he literally is torn to pieces instantly as his limbs are pulled apart.

I collect video nasties and other forms of extreme movies but TOD I had to get rid of .
Not only does it seem tasteless in the extreme to be profiting from selling people dying onscreen it was just impossible to watch , unlike most of Faces of Death .
Even the Executions film came across as trying to serve a useful purpose rather than 100% exploitation.

I think Hamburger Hill is quite saddening to say the least.

Probably a bit of a wuss compared to some but I found the last 15 minutes of Oldboy excruciating to watch.

Eden Lake starring Kelly Reilly was a real sickenener. Way, way over the top for its gratuitous violence. Some of the characters behaved worse than animals.
I have seen so many OTT films and you get numb to them but this film stayed with me as its so 'current', feral teenagers and also the parents getting involved. It really disturbed me.

I don't know why they bother to be honest as they will be allowed to be released uncut eventually and even so you could always get them on import or find a website streaming them.

I heard the UK and US releases of Kill Bill are very slightly censored but the Hong Kong version is not.

I agree but do those films really exist on the market? I thought they were all banned. They would serve as good evidence if the police ever got a copy.

Sounds to me like all horror films are a little like that. Some more than others.
