How do you know it's not a snuff film already if it's as bad as you all say it is? Can't be no different than the movie Hostel? Never heard or seen this movie, after Wrabbit's description, I don't think I will.

A Serbian film is more disturbing than any of the Hostel movies. Trust me. Especially if you have children, do not watch it or you will be sick.

Trust me, I don't plan too. The combination in the description was enough for me to gag.

O heck I started crying a half-hour into Django. It was that bloody-awful screaming I had a visceral reaction to and it was like no other cinematic experience. I still want that half-hour back because I can still hear that awful screaming. It was like hearing two people eat each other.

Sounds like this stuff would have me rocking back-and-forth for the rest of the weekend. The Django aftermath is now referred to as the "Whiskey with Chamomile Tea Chasers" incident in my house.

You might want to give August Underground "Mordum" a miss then. There are a few others too when you delve into these kind of films.

Some films are bad, then there are the ones that should put you off just by what the reviews say about them.

Some of the content of these films really make me question the mentality of the film makers.

It does tickle me when people say that films like The Excorcist and The Shining are the most scary films ever made....they aren't even in the same league as some of the messed up stuff that's out there. We live in a bizarre world.

I prefer comedies than horror but I will watch a horror flick now and again.

My brother told me to watch the 'human centipede' and I felt sick just from him describing it to me. I will NEVER set eyes on that film. I have a f'ed up head and stuff like that just sticks in the back of it. FOREVER!

When I was younger I watched a geezer have his head cut off (for real) and the sound of his gargling stays with me to this day. It is one thing I truly regret. The human mind is not made for things like that.


Thanks for the heads up. Any friends bring the films you have mentioned round mine and they'll be leaving with the dvds stuffed up somewhere very dark.

Just had a look on that IMDb site Wrabbit listed and I agree why would anyone want to watch such a film.
There's even people asking if 'A Serbian Film' is ok for 9-10 year olds??

WTF!?

I have heard of that movie, but even some of the gore hounds that I know who love films like Hostel and Inside say it is just exploitation garbage.

I also heard it rips off House of 1000 Corpses which I think (despite its flaws) is a decent flick.

Well I think "scary" is pretty subjective. I don't see how any gore trash film, or exploitation rape fantasy movie (like A Serbian Film) can really "scare" anyone, one could argue that they attempt to channel into more realistic fears (i.e. the fear of pain, death, and control). Hell I can turn on CNN and be more scared than I was watching A Serbian Film, all that movie did was make me feel horrible.

Probably just an IMDb troll. The comments section on IMDb is probably the worst next to YouTube.

A Serbian Film is basically about Serbia raping the people from birth to death, hence the infamous "Newborn Porn" baby rape scene. It's bleak, distressing, and raw and I'm glad I only skimmed it. At least the film has a deeper meaning than some. Have you heard of Flower Of Flesh And Blood? That's one seriously screwed up movie. Charlie Sheen notified the authorities because he thought it was a real snuff. Also Mordum is damn hard to watch.

Yes this is what I have heard, however that is a completely subjective interpretation. If the creators never mentioned "their" meaning behind the film, everyone would take it at face value.

If they wanted to do a film about genocide, they should have made a film about it. They should not of made a film about raping children for entertainment and called it a film about genocide.

As having just recently viewed A Serbian Film but avoiding Antichrist and Inside for the time being (I'm sure you know why... it takes a lot of energy to build up to watching one of these types of movies)

I can tell you a few things...


Even though a lot of people don't think so, A Serbian Film is A GOOD MOVIE.


And yes, in a way, you are being a wimp. Because you didn't know, apparently... that... this is very much how the real world is (in fact the real world gets sicker than that movie, duh... like you said... some movies pale in comparison to these movies.... well guess what.... these movies PALE in comparison to real life, my friend!)


Which, was the whole point of A Serbian Film...

To give, especially Americans, a glimpse at what the underground porn/trading business is like.


People at the end of Viewings of A Serbian Film were very disgusted, many of them standing up at the credits screaming and cursing the screen. True story.

Why did they get so angry? Are they really so sheltered? What part about this movie do they think is NOT real? This is ALL real, man. A fictional story, sure.. but ALL real, my brother. I'm sorry. it's time to step out of our safe zones a bit and realize this and MUCH worse is happening all around us. It's a GOOD thing you were disturbed, it's a GOOD thing what this movie did to you. Believe it or not.

I just, ... well... despite all that... I just *hope* you didn't see the uncut version (sighs.. still very real stuff, though.)


I AM sheltered, but I still seem to somehow understand this type of activity occurs all across the world on a daily basis. Oh, god.. Think CHINA, man. Think the the most hidden depths of the world...



**SPOILER**


With all that said, one thing I don't get is why the Mom and Dad decided to kill themselves AND the child. This is a little overboard and unrealistic to me. Many kids get raped WILLINGLY by their parents but they don't die, they go on. I'd think eventually dealing/coping with an "unintentional" rape would be quite easier to manage. Hm?

If it's not intentional, the family could have gone on and been just fine and happy. I mean, technically, the father didn't rape the child, if you ask me. And the Father could go on to explain to his child that many kids actually get raped by a willing father, but that this incident was in no way intentional.

I find it especially odd that they made this decision even after they WATCHED PORNO WITH THE DAD IN IT WITH THEIR KID TO BEGIN WITH!@!@@! To ME, THAT is rape, THAT is molestation... to watch pornography with your child??? with YOU as the star in it? To leave the tapes laying around the house ??? Ummm...

The movie was rather silly in some ways. it's a lesson, more than anything.

It's a good lesson. All the sex is simulated, and when there is a child in the room they use Props, all props. There's only one real sex scene and that is the girl actually masturbating at the beginning in the Porn film he and his wife are watching. That's the only incident of "real" sex in the whole movie.

The director is in good taste if you ask me, it's not the director that is in bad taste, and he should not be held accountable for REVEALING (even very SHORT of revealing) how the real world is! Yes he, sadly, doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.


I suggest, OP, get your energy and your stomach and wits back about you and continue finding movies like these. Unless it really begins to upset you and interfere with your life, then it is good for you.





If you'd like some more recommendations just ask. However, UNTIL you are ready to see another disturbing film.

Might I suggest a very good horror flick? It's called Altered, and it's about aliens. It's from the same director as blair witch.

There's disturbing stuff in it, but nothing like that... it's just the right amount of disturbing and fun that should put you back on the right track to sanity. You'll love it I bet, I did.

From there, though... it is your choice whether you want to take the red pill or the blue pill : )
(Edit: I know I through a non-horror movie reference in there that didn't really go along with it.... but seriously, it's up to you how much deeper you want to go from this point.....the destination, you will find, is endless hell. To give a heads up.)

I actually found a film like Megan is Missing to be much more disturbing then any of those films and I am not a parent. Granted it is not anywhere close to as graphic but it is disturbing in a different way.

A Serbian Film , Inside, Frontiers , Red, White and Blue, Human Centipede (the concept is a lot worse than the delivery of the film)and all movies like that cater to a certain taste and have a specific goal in mind which I think is to create a visceral response in someone.

As for a good horror film I actually found the original Last Exorcism movie to be rather interesting until the big revelation.

I have seen A Serbian Film and Inside and been sufficiently disturbed by them both.


I don't even know if they can be classified as horror, I believe they're classified as torture porn? Maybe someone already mentioned that and I missed it, if so I apologize


As much as I was horrified and disturbed by them both...and rightly so the film that has always stood out for me was Blindness

This movie shows the human condition in all it's glory after a plague leaves the whole world blind and it was without a doubt the single most disturbing and horrifying movie that I have ever seen in my life.

If I could only unsee that movie


I will NEVER watch that movie again...NEVER

Let me first say how surprised i am that cannibal holocaust hasn't gotten a mention yet.


To the OP:

I loved horror movies too, genuine horror. The Exorcist, Amityville Horror, Halloween, and even the corny "Children shouldn't' play with dead things.

Having said that, I think some of you are so off, especially the one endorsing the Serbian film, that you don't understand what the term horror even means.

For the record? Horror does NOT equal gross, or mentally disturbing. It's ppl like you that raved about Eraserhead, and should be tied & gagged when discussing "horror" movies, you have no clue.

You wanna argue "artsy"? Fine, go ahead, but please buy a thesaurus.

ETA: It's a GOOD thing that this kind of movie disturbs you, it's supposed to. These kind of movies leave something behind when you watch them. Next time be more careful what you watch, take the time & research it. Talk to friends of similar tastes, and count yourself among the human race.

personally I see it as a redefining of the term horror.

Good God, I thought I was pretty close to the edge having watched Irreversible. I probably shouldn't post it here, but read the IMDB review for a Serbian Film in the OP's link titled "Every exploitation trick in the book"... it's got some detailed spoilers about this movie that makes even the plot summary pale in comparison.

This sounds much less like cinema and more like all those "shock videos" with innocent titles that float around in the deep dark corners of the internetz, whose names shall not be mentioned. I never understood the appeal of those kinds of things, and I simply can't sign on with the argument of "it's real so you should watch it." It really needs to do something for you other than rape your eyes.

One film that is a beautifully messed up and perhaps the ultimate mind-# film of all time (not horror though), you should definitely check out is "Enter the Void", also by Gaspar Noe who did Irreversible. It's the film he always wanted to do, and finally did it once he got enough money from Irreversible's success. Quite disturbing, but equally trippy and forces introspection upon the viewer... must see!!

I actually thought Irreversible was an interesting idea.

Then again I could watch Monica Bellucci change cat litter and would be totally entertained.

Ummm....I'm sorry to have even read this thread...just reading through the comments leaves me feeling sickened......I thought I was a horror movie fan, but if this is the depravity to which the genre is sinking to, then count me out.....I can't for the life of me see the sense of having to wring the blackness out of your soul after watching a movie like what you all have described....

Don't you dare tell me that I SHOULD see this garbage...Just because evil exists doesn't mean I need to get down there in the sewer and cavort with it....If you can't see how wrong this is, then I feel sorry for you but in the game of sides......Your walking where I choose not to tread....

You can't be a light within the light if you choose the shadow as your playground....If you choose to corrupt your soul in such a manner then I pray that you never meet me in this life...

Good thread and hits home to me too.

A few things i'd like add is 'serbian film' is commonly called newborn porn, that in iself is a gross term.

David Lynch (Who I adore) once said to paraphrase 'Movies are 50%Visual 50%Audio' a serbian film
very much follows this path in the sense you look away but you can still hear it giving an almost post traumatic stress vibe to you.

I am just your typical 80's horror fan, Halloween, Friday the 13th, Freddy, Childs play etc but when I first got into the the otherside of the internet you know the one, you are stumbling through and all of a sudden you have pictures of Tupacs post mortem on your screen you click off and endup on another page, maybe a video.
I have ruined many a night by honest browsing.

To further illustrate my point, I'm aware of but have not watched nor will I '4 men and a hammer; ( ithink that's what it was called) and the recent video with Luka Magnotta who went on the run then was caught (he was commenting on actual youtube videos that were about him). One thing that was scary to me about the magnotta case isn't just the torture, beheading and total lack of remorse its the fact he advertised this video 2months before he actually made it the video posted it on youtube, basically showing premeditation.

I was hooked while he was on the run, activly trolling him on youtube hopng he would be caught (there had been newscasts saying he was on the internet and they were monitoring him)

To sum it up in one sentence

The world is densensitizing people at an alarming rate these days

Jacob's Ladder has a beautiful ending that puts the whole story into a different context, a great film posing as a horror flick

Hokey looking monsters will never outdo something that some dark corner of our minds know could be happening at any given moment.

True horror is delivered by the likelihood of the events taking place actually being a distinct reality.

Movie monsters are cool, but just that. Not really terrifying, or even scary. Something that resembles a snuff film is fairly grotesque, the implications of which can be truly horrifying or sickening.

Horror flicks that stretch the limits of being able to suspend disbelief are a lot of fun, but not really horrifying. If it doesn't seem real, it's too easy.

For instance, a biography about any given serial killer is way more "horror" than most anything found in Fangoria.

For me anyway.

I think I might be more disturbed by the fact that most of you posters watch these kinds of movies (i.e. The Serbian Film) in the first place.

What makes you people watch the entire movie than just "walk away" or "turn off the tv" ...
