I'm not sure if it's considered a film or not, but I found Scum to be quite disturbing, especially the rape scene and later the suicide of the boy who was raped.

I remember watching that not long after fleeing my ex, upsetting to watch.
i think it would still get to me now even though i don`t have any unpacked baggage and have long since forgiven him.

Yes, it's a film. Made for TV, but still a film.

I found John MacKenzie's The Elephant's Graveyard rather haunting. I watched it again recently on youtube and it had the same effect.

Run of the mill but good thriller, what's so haunting about it ?

This one actually looks okay, I might get it.

Also has anyone seen Buried, with the hostage buried alive in Iraq? That's not the best film to watch in the dark if you're already slightly claustrophobic, like I did.

The virgin suicides creeped me out a bit after we watched it at school.

Also i dont think it was a film really, but at school we watched this thing about a falklands veteran with PTSD murdering homeless people and putting the bodies under the floorboards of his house.

The road, there was no hope what so ever in that film.
Oh did they make a film of that? I read the book not long ago and how I managed not to slit my writs I'll never know. Will never ever forget it.

I think every politician in every country in the world should be forced to read that book before taking office. Let them see what could quite possibly happen one day.
I haven't seen that but apparently it's very good. What's it about though? I might not watch it if it's another nuclear war one.

I was a young lad and it was the first time |I had seen a conspiracy movie. Up until then I assumed everything was as it seemed.
I then went on to be hooked on 70,s conspiracy movies, The Parrallex View, Marathon Man, All the Presedents Men, The Conversation etc.

The Bridge http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0799954/

Stayed with me for weeks and was very profound and powerful and obviously very Haunting.

Also The Orphanage http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0464141/ was very haunting, brilliant film.

i sobbed all the way through and i rarely cry.

edit: and it was a true story.

Those are fantastic films. The Manchurian Candidate, too.

Picnic at hanging rock from 1975 is very haunting the soundtrack is so haunting its like nothing i have seen before or since.

An Australian film about a group of schoolgirls that go misssing on Ayers Rock i have it also on DVD.

Well worth a watch for those that have not seen it yet.

I like the film where they had a special bus service to a safrai park and the animals ended up on the bus mutiny on the buses i think well funny.

Stan Butler and Blakey being chased upstairs on the bus by a Lion.

The Road is a film that haunted me. It's just so desperately bleak.

"This is your inspector" Blakey, "I am the dirver let me up first" Stan Butler

Another line they go through the Elephant enclosure and Blakey says to stan Butler "its a good job they can't get on the bus"

Certainly from a feminist POV...

Come and See, a Soviet film about the Nazi invasion of Belarus, was pretty haunting, and it was difficult to get the images out of your head afterwards.
