    After I watched A Serbian Film, I had to drink a very large glass of whiskey and watch The Muppets. Since then, I've watched several films that were supposed to be some of the most disturbing films ever made, including both Human Centipede films, Salo, and The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane. I've found none to be at all disturbing. A Serbian Film broke my fragile little mind.

    The photographs of Joel Peter Witkin.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    years ago i had a day in college where i had back to back to back classes dealing with genocide and death
    so for hours i watched a film with survivors of the armenian genocide recounting their story ( with footage and still images )
    then a 2 hour class full of matthew brady (american) civil war images of dead soldiers in the battlefield, and then ...
    a 3 hour long photograph class with jeffery silverthorne who presented and passed around his series of people who died
    of unknown causes / morgue portraits ... probably some of the most beautiful portraits i have ever seen ...

    so while more than 5 hours of death and carnage kind of overwhelmed me ( and i have thought of that day of classes every day for nearly 30years)
    joel peter witkin's work kind of disturbs me ...

    oh ... lars von trier's antichrist is a pretty disturbing film

    Agree on Witkin's work.
    Two somewhat recent films that I found disturbing (but very good) are

    Anything in a News Corp paper, or on Fox (except the Simpsons).

    Anything with Tom Hanks in it will get me every time.

    Adam Sandler's slapstick comedies. All the moreso because he's brilliant when he tries to be subtle (Punch-drunk Love, Wedding Singer, Anger Management). Happy Gilmore though makes my skin crawl.

    Pit and the Pendulum (with Vincent Price) - the scene where he walks down the stairs calling "Elizabeth, Elizabeth". We watched it in 8th or 9th grade English class. Bugged me out for weeks (my full name is Elizabeth).

    Gory films don't do it - spent too much time seeing the real thing.
