Most twisted movie you've seen?

Postby Sea Ferring » Sun Nov 30, 2008 2:27 am UTC

I got the inspiration for this topic today when I watched The Girl Next Door. That is without a doubt the most twisted movie I've seen? Everything about it was so; off.

The beginning makes it seem all nice and reminded me of Stand By Me, but a certain event (won't say what) completely changes the mood and it just turns into, into... I can barely think about this movie it was so terrifying, and wrong, and overall off putting.

I'm a pretty unsqueamish guy, I can watch almost anything without but this was just the worst.

So, what was the most twisted movie you've seen?

Also what other movie can you say

Spoiler:
I just saw a girl get her clitoris burnt off with a blowtorch after having sex with her cousin?

Buh?

See... this is why it's useful to provide a link to the film you're talking about. I can only assume that you mean this one, or that you're being incredibly sarcastic.

Also, we have spoiler tags. You can use them to mention whatever it is that you didn't want to say.

The worst for me would have to be Pusher. Pusher is considered to be the first ever ganster film produced in Denmark. Notable scenes include graphic torture and a junkie blowing his head off with a shotgun.

Special mention to Requim for a Dream.

I would also like mention The Wind the Shakes that Barley. I haven't actually seen it all the way through, just flicked to in the adverts of another movie, however the torture scene I flicked onto was not fun to watch. Christ the British were nasty bastards during that war; then again the Irish kept throwing nail bombs into pubs. Yay!

Altered States. Whoa. Spoilered below is the Plot section from the Wiki article, which goes a long way towards explaining why it's so twisted.

Spoiler:
Edward Jessup (Hurt) is a university professor of abnormal psychology who, while studying schizophrenia, begins to think that "our other states of consciousness are as real as our waking states."[2] Jessup begins experimenting with sensory-deprivation using a flotation tank, and he travels to Mexico to participate in a fictionalized amanita muscaria ceremony where he experiences bizarre, intense, paradigm-shifting imagery. The professor then returns to the U.S. with a mushroom tincture and begins taking it orally before each session in the flotation tank where he undergoes a series of increasingly drastic psychological and physical transformations.

Doctor Edward Jessup's mind experiments lead him down a path of actual, physical biological devolution. At one stage he emerges from the isolation tank as a feral and curiously small-statured, light-skinned Primitive Man. In a subsequent experiment he is regressed into a mostly amorphous mass of conscious, primordial matter. It is only the physical intervention of his wife Emily which brings him back from this latter, shocking transformation in which he seems poised on the brink of becoming a non-physical form of proto-consciousness and possibly disappearing from our version of reality altogether.

The experiments go even further out of control in that Professor Jessup experiences episodes of involuntary spontaneous temporary partial de-evolution. This occurs outside of the isolation tank and without the intake of additional doses of the hallucinogenic tincture. His early reaction is more one of fascination than concern, but as his priorities gradually change via Emily's unwavering determination to keep from losing him to some unfathomable state of non-being he finally begins to act like someone who values his humanity more than the vast, impersonal nothingness that underlies all of existence.


Whoa. I first watched this on acid. Awesome visuals. But it freaked the shit out of me.

Naked Lunch was twisted in a "whoa, trippy" sort of way, as opposed to a holyshitextremesexandviolence sort of way, but still extremely twisted.

The Silence of the Lambs deserves some mention as well.

I'm not one for twisted movies, but I'll have to mention Man Bites Dog. It helped that I saw it a few minutes in, with no context to put it in, so I wasn't sure if it was a real documentary.
Most of the movie had a breezy and even poetic quality, thanks to the, er, protagonist, but the birthday party scene cemented the haunting creepiness for me.

Surprised it hasn't been mentioned, maybe it's too obvious, but:
Begotten
Spoiler:
Starts with God disemboweling himself with a straight razor. Mother Earth then rises from the bowels, jerks off the now dead God and impregnates herself with his seed. She gives birth to a quivering man-child. They go ... somewhere? She gets raped by the cloaked people who live there, they collar-and-leash and beat her kid (I think, it's been a while). Then we get about 45 minutes of shots of the sky and them walking around and the sun and dirt. Something or other happens and grass grows out of the dirt. We get a shot of Mother Nature standing in a forest. The End.


I also have the dubious honor of having made my instructor in a digital video class exclaim "What a twisted story!" Young boy is convinced the forest is telling him to kill people because they have committed horrible crimes. Boy meets Girl. Falls in love. Girls wants to photograph Boy murdering people because she wants to be an artist. Girl convinces Boy to commit murder in broad daylight and both are killed by a cop.

Perfectly normal, right?

I couldn't finish it, but me and a group of pals tried to watch Salò (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sal%C3%B2_o_le_120_giornate_di_Sodoma).
It was horrifying and incredibly disgusting.

I was going to mention Begotten as well. I watched it alone, after midnight, with all the lights out, which made it even more surreal.

Beyond that, Visitor Q by Takashi Miike. I don't remember the whole thing, but
Spoiler:
The opening scene is a lengthy shot of a man having sex with his prostitute daughter, who mocks him for coming too early. At home, his wife is constantly beaten by his son, who keeps a variety of implements in his room for that purpose. Later, a guest in his house teaches his wife how to shoot milk out of her nipples, which she loves, and does at every opportunity, eventually flooding the kitchen with it. The man, still insecure about his daughter's mockery, rapes a coworker to prove he isn't an "early bird," but accidentally kills her. He takes the body home with him and violates her corpse in his back yard. Rigor mortis sets in (which he realizes after she defecates on him) and his cock gets stuck inside of her. His wife cheerfully helps him into the bathtub and buys a variety of possible lubricants until they finally free him. Some boys from their son's school come to torment him, so they brutally murder them, dismember them, and hide them in garbage bags. The film ends with a shot of the man and his daughter suckling his wife.


I guess along those same lines, I've also watched Audition and Ichi the Killer.

Four movies come to mind:

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me - That one tops my list for all sorts of fucked up the movie is.

Spoiler:
The father did it.


The Triplets of Belleville - Primarily a French animated film, it has very little dialogue, but the drawings are a bit messed up, and the plot is even weirder.

The Innocents - A woman is hired to care for two children who have both witnessed something horrible, and has caused them to behave oddly. She herself begins to witness strange events in the home. Based on the novel "The Turn Of The Screw". It has no major special effects, but it can really mess with your mind.

Pink Floyd: The Wall - Need I say more?

Eraserhead is pretty fucking insane.

An obscure, strange movie I liked is called "Save the Green Planet". It's an Asian import (Korea, I think?) about a guy who may or may not be insane who abducts a CEO and tortures him because the main character thinks the CEO is the vanguard of an alien invasion. It's filled with all sorts of nasty or odd things, and it's especially uncomfortable because you spend most of the movie unsure whether this guy's actions are justified or not. Very interesting stuff.

The curious thing is that once you get past the sensory overload onslaught, Tetsuo is a gorgeously shot art film.

Also, Tetsuo is the tip of the iceburg. Lots of stuff like that if you go hunting.

I caught about seven minutes of some August Underground movie at a friend's house once and that was all I needed to see of it. It falls in the ridiculously pointlessly graphic category of twisted. I much prefer the psychological kind that makes you sort of O.O at the end. Like Hard Candy.

In response to earlier posts:

Man! Hard Candy was so good. Yes, pretty twisted and very intense. But so good! Also, Triplets of Belleville --great movie.

I'm going to supply Satyricon here, even though I don't think it was actually that twisted, just because I can't think of any other weird movies off the top of my head.

(I kind of want to watch Tetsuo: Iron Man and Eraserhead...)

I watched Salo last night. Unfortunately, the version I acquired didn't have subtitles, so I couldn't understand any of the dialogue. It was easy enough to follow though. The last scene was incredibly graphic (scalping and eye-gouging, in particular) but the rest of it wasn't so bad. The things the characters are doing are, of course, absolutely terrible, but the visuals themselves were pretty mild.

I didn't watch it over and over in one day, but I did watch it once daily for almost an entire Summer Vacation when I was 8, and I turned out fine. *nervous twitch*

I even recorded it onto audio tape and would listen to it while coloring or doing some other arts-and-crafts project at my little desk in the dining room. Again, I turned out fine. *falls to floor, begins to rock back and forth, screaming*

Is The Wall available anywhere on the internet? I can't seem to find it at the video stores...

Tideland. To be honest, I didn't think it was that disturbing, but it's definitely freaked some people out. The whole putting children in perilous situations really seems to bother people for some reason.

Lately I've watched "Red" in my English class. It's about these teens who shoot this old guy's dog and he's going all out to get revenge. I think these movies are kind of pointless, with just blood in the end.

Straw Dogs. Specifically, the version shown in America, in which they were forced to
Spoiler:
cut out the second rape because, essentially, one rape was pushing it, two was unacceptable (according to the MPAA.) It ended up making it seem like she enjoyed being raped, whereas the unedited version makes it clear that she did not.
It was an excellent film, as far as execution goes (aside from the spoiler'd editing issue;) the acting, directing, etc. were great, and I definitely recommend it. But even the unedited version (which didn't have the aforementioned problem) was pretty questionable, as far as Peckinpah's values go; that scene was originally cut down because it was too brutal, and the ending was a bit excessive.

I watched The Wall only once, about five or six years ago. I don't remember precisely what was my reaction back then, but right now, what I remember of it is pretty dumb. It was an attempt at making something "serious" out of an album which thrives on being puffed-up and ridiculously overblown.

WTF? Hot Fuzz is one of my favourite movies (I love Simon Pegg / Edgar Wright stuff in general). 'Twisted' is not a word I'd use to describe it.

One of the most bizarre movies I think I've seen (I don't usually like twisted stuff) is "The Last Temptation of Christ", which has a very ... interesting take on the life of Christ. Although I think it's not really twisted, just a bit weird! (And long. Very, very, long.)

It's one of my favourite movies as well. I guess it depends on your definition of twisted, but for me the way it looks like when it starts and the way it finishes are so different, it has twists in there somewhere.

Plot Twists are not the same as the usage of Twisted for this thread.

Most Twisted/Bizarre/Demented/Nauseating/HumanityHateInducing/Mindfucking movies might be a better way of phrasing it, but that's too much to fit in the subject.
