A young woman's quest for revenge against the people who kidnapped and tormented her as a child leads her and a friend, who is also a victim of child abuse, on a terrifying journey into a living hell of depravity. (99 mins.)
Director: Pascal Laugier
“ This movie was one that I found listed on a horror website and it had a good review. It took me a while to find it.
A girl is kidnapped at the beginning of this movie and is taken into some kind of torture room. After suffering immensely, she escapes, but is mentally scarred. Years later, she seeks revenge on her abusers. It is also a good example of what a best friend should be as the victim's best friend takes on her suffering. The images left in my mind and the questions that came after the credits rolled is why this is one flick I will never forget. Imagine someone removing your entire body's worth of flesh and then watching as your life leaves your eyes as you are boiled in some human body tank... ” - notmadetomeasure

Director: Ruggero Deodato
“ This one of the top No No movies of the last century. This Italian director had his movie banned from hundreds of places. He was also fined for animal torture. It's very difficult for me to realize that the effects in this movie were effects. My most difficult scene to handle is the killing and eating a very large tortoise. I am a turtle lover.
Not many times do I ever feel the need to cover my eyes. I do it every single time for this movie.
Basically, a group of young people go to the islands in search of cannibals...
It's a movie within a movie, because this young group goes missing and then the plot focuses on the the people that head out to rescue them. ” - notmadetomeasure

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X

Director: Lars von Trier
“ I don't really have any easy way of describing this movie. This is the best I can do:
First of all, it's an art film. Second, William Dafoe is in it which also adds to it's creepiness factor. Third, a terrorized woman who suffers from depression at the loss of her child; cuts of her own clitoris with a huge pair of scissors...
People with weak stomachs beware! ” - notmadetomeasure

Director: Adam Green
“ One of the best Sequels I've seen in a long time starring the amazing Danielle Harris. This is a very gory horror/slasher movie and the killer is mutilated and burned retarded kid back from the grave and he kills anyone that goes into his swamp. The reason why I can't forget this one is how Tody Todd's character dies. That's all I can say without giving any spoilers. ” - notmadetomeasure

Director: Stanley Kubrick
“ More than the movie itself, which is incredible, but the music is what creeps me out about this one. Falling asleep while watching this movie is not a good idea. More than once I've woken up screaming to the soundtrack playing in my sleep.
Jack Nicholson can not fail in this thriller. ” - notmadetomeasure

“ A very interesting story about a teenage girl who happens to have "vagina dentata" - Sharp teeth on the inside of her vagina. You can only imagine what happens to the objects/body parts that dare to enter inside. It creeped me out mainly during the last scene and all that I will say is that it involves a dog. ” - notmadetomeasure

“ Four fascist libertines round up 9 teenages boys and girls and subject them to 120 days of physical, mental and sexual torture.

Many kill themselves or are murdered.

Even though this is an old movie, it really shows everything. It's pretty much a very well acted serious horror porn.
