11 Films So Disturbing (Most) People Can Only Watch Them Once

When it comes to cinema, "most disturbing movies" isn't exactly a genre. That said, it most definitely is a shared experience that most people have had, ourselves included. Whether it's a World War II drama you were forced to watch in high school or one of Stanley Kubrick's nightmarish rides, everyone has that one movie that shook them to their very core! For us, it's Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a Dream. Man, the first time we saw that film — we actually vomited. That's not an exaggeration, y'all. It was just that disturbing! In fact, we had to watch Night at the Museum with Ben Stiller afterward just to be able to sleep.

To clarify, just because a movie is disturbing, doesn't mean it's not F'in fantastic. Requiem for a Dream is a beautifully scored, beautifully shot, beautifully written film — it just so happens to make you want cry in the fetal position for hours on end. Some people have a higher tolerance than others when it comes to rewatching a disturbing flick. We are not "some people" and it seems that reddit users below share in that sentiment.

Of course, there's some spoiler alerts in the descriptions below. Not that we recommend you watch any of these, but, hey! If you feel like living on the edge, do you. If you need to adopt our Night at the Museum coping strategy, by all means, do so! We've figure out that it's the perfect movie to forget about traumatic experiences — thanks again for that, Ben Stiller.
