Salo (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma) 1979,  NC-17)
Salo (Salò o le 120 giornate di Sodoma)
Only the sick and depraved minds of Pasolini and DeSade could accomplish this perverse and disgusting freak show. the king of "weird" films.
Eraserhead 1977,  R)
enigmatic and bizarre nightmare, enjoyable iniciatic jouney through Lynch's perverted mind.
In the Realm of the Senses 1976,  NC-17)
In the Realm of the Senses
Tedious, nothing more than pornography in disguise. the shoking ending is the only remarkable moment, and it makes the film quite bearable.
The Devils 1971,  R)
The Devils
Oliver Reed gives an outstanding performance in Ken Russell's fiendish, macabre and utterly delirious parade that shows through a pinhole the dangers and excesses of superstition in the dark ages of christianity.
Nekromantik 1987,  Unrated)
Nekromantik 2 1991,  Unrated)
Nekromantik 2
One of the sickest pieces of trash I've ever seen. at least it's well told, but the somber theme makes it a little unbearable. good shocking ending though.
Irreversible 2002,  Unrated)
If the director would have been less pretentious and get to the point without pleasing himself, he could have managed a better film. its only value is the "shock" element.
Seul Contre Tous (I Stand Alone) (One Against All) 1998,  Unrated)
Seul Contre Tous (I Stand Alone) (One Against All)
Intense, visceral, raw. hard to digest and yet interesting existentialist tale of a god's lonely man, a troubledmind french butcher who will take what he conciders fair, no matter who falls on the way. director Gaspár Noe homage to Godard and Scorsese. not for the faint-hearted.
Crash 1996,  NC-17)
honest, bizarre, perverse and yet thought-provoking soft-core thriller by the undisputable king of venereal-surgical horror.
Begotten 1989,  Unrated)
A tedious pseudo intellectual experiment that would have worked better as a short film.
Za ginipiggu: Akuma no jikken (Guinea Pig: Devil's Experiment) 1985,  NC-17)
Za ginipiggu: Akuma no jikken (Guinea Pig: Devil's Experiment)
One of the most outrageous pieces of crap. only a perverted and sick mind could conceived this abomination. this is not cinema.
Ginî piggu 2: Chiniku no hana 1985,  Unrated)
Ginî piggu 2: Chiniku no hana
If the first installment was perversity at its best, this is even worst, a boring nothing, a tedious piece of puke, not even shit. pardon my language, but once again, this is not cinema.
Cannibal Holocaust 1979,  NC-17)
Cannibal Holocaust
One of the well known examples of pseudo-snuff. a twisted gory italian film inside the amazon jungle. vicious, sick, eerie.
Naked Lunch 1991,  R)
Triumph des Willens (Triumph Of The Will) 1935,  Unrated)
Triumph des Willens (Triumph Of The Will)
Both impressive and embarrasing propaganda piece. A colossal parade of madness.
Midnight Blue: The Deep Throat Special Edition 2005,  Unrated)
The Short Films of David Lynch 2002,  Unrated)
Faces of Death IV 1990,  Unrated)
Mulholland Drive 2001,  R)
Mulholland Drive
another example of the ethereal, mesmerizing, deranged and fascinating world of Mr. Lynch, this time lead by a gorgeous pair of performers.
Shivers (They Came from Within) (The Parasite Murders) 1975,  R)
Shivers (They Came from Within) (The Parasite Murders)
The perverse king of venereal horror started his long career with this disturbing and enjoyable low budget freak show. A glimpse of what was yet to come.
Rabid 1979,  R)
Cronenberg's gratuitous zombies, sex and violence cocktail doesn't work as good as in his first feature, but still succeeds to crawl your skin. A very entertaining, disgusting and gratifying surprise.
The Brood 1979,  R)
The Brood
Cronenberg delivers his dwarfs of rage with his usually intelligent, fascinating and disgusting pseudo-metafisic plot and atmosphere. this is with no doubt the best of his early works.
The Evil Dead 1981,  R)
Evil Dead 2 1987,  R)
Bad Taste 1989,  R)
Dead Alive (Braindead) 1993,  R)
Tetsuo: The Ironman 1989,  R)
Thriller - A Cruel Picture (Thriller - en grym film) (Hooker's Revenge) (They Call Her One Eye) 1974,  R)
Fando and Lis ,  Unrated)
Koroshiya 1 (Ichi the Killer) 2001,  R)
Koroshiya 1 (Ichi the Killer)
Overrated and highly sadistic yakuza freak show. nevertheless, violence is so gratuitous and over the top that turns to be funny.
Glen or Glenda? 1953,  Unrated)
Glen or Glenda?
Ed Wood's opera prima is way ahead of its time. A sensationalist take on the controversial matter of transvestism and sex change, but that doesn't keep it from being absolutely nuts and hilarious, almost surreal.

Wood could have been a pitiful and mildly mentally impaired man, but he was definitely an auteur who envisioned and created and specific kind of work. Though poor, the results always leave you wandering whether he was insane or he was just a genius pulling off a big, elaborate joke.

On the other hand, Bela Lugosi, the man who once was a mega star, was here in the rock bottom. But strangely, he sort of raises the film's quality (not to say hilarity) thanks to his larger than life way of reciting Wood's dreadfully convoluted and idiotic writing. He makes a Greek tragedy out of every sentence.

Edward D. Wood Jr. was like a child working with crayons, and I guess that's why one has to feel some affection for him and his equally weird troupe of underachievers.
I was certainly mesmerized with this, especially the dream sequence, one of the most raving mad scenes I've ever witnessed
Plan 9 from Outer Space 1959,  Unrated)
Plan 9 from Outer Space
One star for pity, the other for hilarity. poor Ed, he was just a little boy playing with crayons, a very expensive set of them.
Bride of the Monster 1955,  Unrated)
Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog) 1929,  Unrated)
Un Chien Andalou (An Andalusian Dog)
A milestone, the first surreal film. Buñuel and Dalí sliced an eye ball and opened a gate of boundless imagination.
Lost Highway 1997,  R)
Lost Highway
The O.J Simpson case through the deceitful mind of David Lynch. A powerful, twisted, devilish jigsaw. eerie Robert Blake.
Audition (Ôdishon) 1999,  R)
Persona 1966,  Unrated)
Intense, strange and stunning. beautiful pair of actresses, dazzling cinematography, bizarre and compelling subject.
Twin Peaks - Fire Walk with Me 1992,  R)
El Ángel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel) 1967,  Unrated)
El Ángel Exterminador (The Exterminating Angel)
Buñuel's disgust for the upper classes was never more evident than here. Surreal, intriguing, claustrophobic, and riveting film about the most primitive human behaviors. A must see.
L' Âge d'Or (Age of Gold) (The Golden Age) 1979,  Unrated)
Santa sangre (Holy Blood) 1990,  R)
Lo Squartatore di New York (The New York Ripper) 1982,  Unrated)
E tu vivrai nel terrore - L'aldilà (The Beyond) 1981,  R)
E tu vivrai nel terrore - L'aldilà (The Beyond)
really twisted and over the top gory, still pretty earie and atmospherical.
Zombi 2 1980,  R)
Zombi 2
this gory fest has one of the best zombie make up ever created. they seem like actual walking corpses, an entertaining and weird italian b-movie, euro trash at it's best
Paura nella città dei morti viventi (City Of The Living Dead) (The Gates of Hell) 1980,  R)
Paura nella città dei morti viventi (City Of The Living Dead) (The Gates of Hell)
as all Fulci films, terribly ambiguous, unpleasant and very entertaining.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 1974,  R)
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
cult classic, one of the grand daddies of slashers. hallucinating, raw, tingles of cinema veritè/documentary feel make a nerve-racking stay with one hell of a family.
Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man) (Demons '95) (Of Death, of Love) 1996,  R)
Un Perro llamado Dolor (A Dog Called Pain) 2001,  Unrated)
Un Perro llamado Dolor (A Dog Called Pain)
heavy but interesting visual experiment, a homage from Spanish musician-painter-filmmaker Luis Eduardo Aute to his favorite artistic branches.
Rabid Grannies 1989,  R)
Rabid Grannies
Extremely silly and hilariously bad euro trash.
Possession ,  R)
Premutos - Der gefallene Engel 1999,  Unrated)
Weekend (Week End) 1967,  Unrated)
Weekend (Week End)
Campy and mildly funny attack to the upper classes by Jean-Luc Godard, one of the most acid and persuasive demagogues in film history.
I Spit on Your Grave (Day of the Woman) 1978,  R)
Cannibal Ferox 1997,  R)
In a Glass Cage (Tras el cristal) 1989,  Unrated)
Alice (Neco z Alenky) 1988,  Unrated)
Re-Animator 1985,  R)
El Topo 1970,  Unrated)
El Topo
A surreal and mystical western that depicts the journeys of a messianic gunfighter. A rare mix of Buñuel's satire and anti religious imagery and Peckinpah's ultra violent frontiere.
If it wasn't for Jodorowsky's pretentious guru crap he tries to profess in all of his films, it probably would have worked better.
Halloween III - Season of the Witch 1982,  R)
Funny Games 1998,  Unrated)
Themroc 1973,  Unrated)
Subversive and bizarre anarchist fantasy where incest, murder, cannibalism, among other ways to break free are instructed by a construction worker who gets tired of his aimless and repetitive existence, and the repression exercised by authorities. That once shy and submissive man is now the leader of some kind of urban cavemen community that only seek to give and receive the most primitive forms of pleasure.

There's no dialogue whatsoever, only a series of grunts, yells and gurgles without sense; that serve to establish even more the meaning of disorder inherent in the plot.
Traces of Death 1993,  Unrated)
Fando y Lis (Fando and Lis) 1970,  Unrated)
Ilsa - She Wolf of the SS 1974,  R)
C'est arrivé près de chez vous (Man Bites Dog) (It Happened in Your Neighborhood) 1992,  NC-17)

The Company of Wolves 1984,  R)
Punishment Park 1971,  R)
God Told Me To 1976,  R)
Mikey 1992,  R)
O Lucky Man! 1973,  R)
The Ninth Configuration (Twinkle, Twinkle, Killer Kane) 1980,  R)
The Ninth Configuration (Twinkle, Twinkle, Killer Kane)
A Marx Brothers movie, with theology.
Clean, Shaven 1995,  Unrated)
Clean, Shaven
One of those rare films that shake your foundations with its uncomfortable but spellbinding close look of a deeply disturbed man looking for some peace of mind.
Basket Case 1982,  R)
Meet the Feebles 1989,  R)
Alucarda, la hija de las tinieblas (Sisters of Satan) (Innocents from Hell) (Mark of the Devil 3) 1978,  R)
Heavy Metal 1981,  R)

    lots of messed up films, quite definative. i think you need to watch irreversable again, it's a masterpiece and it disturbed me more than any gore/snuff film.

    my problem with "Irreversible" is that I think it was just a plain and simple masturbatory act (from director Garpar Noé).
    The only passage of the film where I can relate with the dizzy camerawork is inside that gay s&m club "the rectum" the rest it's mostly gratuitous, it doesn't contribute anything to the narration, plus it's immensely overrated.

    Nice list, but one thing really sticks out to me... a 3 star rating(about dead average) for SALO, which is typically considered the "love it or hate it" movie of all time! (I tend to give a lot of average ratings to love-it-or-hate-it stuff too, just because I see both sides of the argument and can't make up my mind).
