    This will be odd, but I originally wanted to see Cannibal Holocaust yet I really don't want to due to the animal violence. I have heard enough about it that I don't think I should see it. I don't get too squeamish but I just don't want to go there with that movie. So although I have never watched this movie, oddly enough, I would go with Cannibal Holocaust.

    The hardest for me is easily Nekromantik. It gave me the most sickening feeling in the pit of my stomach the first time I tried watching it. I have probably toughened up a bit since then, but it is still a difficult thing to watch.

    CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. The violence seemed so real...too real.

    I still can't sit through Cannibal Holocaust. The depictions of real animal cruelty make me both incredibly angry and sick to my stomach at the same time.

    I'd go with Faces of Death since I refuse to see it.

    Used to be I was scared to watch Irreversible a second or third time. I've since grown calloused to it and have come to appreciate it as art, although I don't really know if it fits in the horror genre. One movie I will NEVER watch again is Dancer In The Dark...irritatingly depressing. Not horror in the traditional sense, but horrific to me.

    The Descent because I am claustrophobic to an extreme. Had to fight through a lot of the scenes because I could not take the feeling...

    I haven't seen Penance but I'll go with the first two August Underground films. I don't like it when people use the word pointless to describe a film because really you can say that about any movie. I just had a hard time finding a reason why I should continue sitting through that. I also can't stand the term Torture Porn but if the term relates to plot less excuse to show violent set pieces then those films might deserve that label. Yet for some reason I just have to sit through every film that claims to be the next most disturbing films ever. I'm weird that way.

    Henry - Portrait of a Serial Killer. I find the ending extremely depressing.

    For me, it would have to be The Untold Story.

    "The Manson Family". I found it really disturbing - especially when the group made it to Sharon Tate's - it was just difficult to watch because it really happened and the director just kept the camera on the repeated stabbings. I felt dirty watching it. I haven't seen a lot that others have mentioned because I really don't like movies that are uber violent. I would never watch something like Cannibal Holocaust where real animals are murdered. :nervous: I find it highly offensive.

    I've never really had a problem viewing the animal violence in the cannibal films. Not that I condone the slaughter of animals for entertainment purposes- I just feel too far removed to be affected strongly. Well, except for the turtle scene in Cannibal Holocaust. That was frickin' gross.

    Thanks for another great contest!!
    For me it's "Traces of Death", rented on vhs at a mom n' pop store back in the day with some friends. I was absolutely traumatized, which is rare for me. I can still see Bud Dwyer's suicide footage. Not a good experience, I left the room at that part and will never re-visit it or see the sequels. At least "Faces of Death" had a mature aura about it, "Traces" ups the ante on graphic images and delivers them with a childish, 80's metal vibe. It just seemed so wrong.

    Cannibal Holocaust for me - it just makes me feel bad to watch it. I won't watch stuff like August Underground ro the Guinea Pig movies again just because they're pretty boring, although I suppose if they had a plot or characters (or any reason to care about the violence) they might be more difficult to sit through.

    I'm going to have to go with "Cannibal Holocaust" as well. At that point in my film watching I had no seen anything nearly as gruesome or disturbing as the animal slaughters.

    I usually have a strong stomach for graphic horror films, but I would also have to pick Cannibal Holocaust for the animal killings. It's a good film and certainly brutal enough, but it could've done without those scenes.

    Ok this is truly gonna sound nuts but Planet Terror.
    Yes, the absolutely wonderful Robert Rodriguez entry into the Grindhouse double feature.
    The scene when young Tony blows his brains out in the car just sat with me the wrong way and I almost threw up in the theater. I've got two kids so I'm sure that had something to do with it but I just can't watch that scene. Fast forward every time.

    Now I've seen Salo, Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, A Serbian Film, Human Centipede, Life and Death of a Porno Gang, Inside, Martyrs, Funny Games, Henry, etc..etc...... they're all pretty rough and I sometimes find myself looking away from certain content but nothing in a movie bummed me out more than little Tony blowing his head off in response to seeing his zombie father.

    Cool contest!

    bit difficult for me, since there are very few movies which on their whole are hard to watch, more like certain scenes that trigger something

    i'll take Cannibal Ferox, since that's the only movie EVER that i've fast forwarded a scene of (the rodent in the beginning getting very slowly strangled to death)
