Megan Is Missing (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.9/10 X  
Two teenage girls encounter an Internet child predator. (85 mins.)
Director: Michael Goi
“ Hits home because of its low budget, realistic mediums used to piece the film together. The last 20 minutes are so horrid, they will make you extremely uncomfortable and dirty feeling. I was in complete shock after seeing this. Very raw and chillingly possible. ” - nsederstrom
 
2.
The Girl Next Door (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
Based on the Jack Ketchum novel of the same name, The Girl Next Door follows the unspeakable torture and abuses committed on a teenage girl in the care of her aunt...and the boys who witness and fail to report the crime. (91 mins.)
“ This movie is basically an all out child abuse exploitation flick designed to make you feel dirty even after 5 consecutive showers. It'll leave a foul taste in your mouth that makes you never want to watch it again. A lesson in how disgusting people can certainly be if given the chance. ” - nsederstrom

Martyrs (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
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
“ While not based on true stories like the previous 2 films, the assumption that something like this could even be plausible is enough to make anyone shiver, even the most soulless of us hardcore gore hounds. The first 2/3 of this flick are narrated well, fast paced, and leave a slight mystery. The last third (and the ending) leave the door slam shut and lock behind you in traditional French fashion. Amazing, brutal film with a refreshingly intellectual message behind it. ” - nsederstrom

Aftermath (1994 Short Film)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
A short film wherein a man working in a morgue mutilates and defiles one of the corpses. He takes the heart home to his dog. (30 mins.)
Director: Nacho Cerdà
“ This little chestnut is quite engrossing in its effort to make you squirm. Lots of unabashed gore, graphic autopsies, and to top it all off...well, its definitely a walk down depravity boulevard. ” - nsederstrom

Inside (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X  
Four months after the death of her husband, a woman on the brink of motherhood is tormented in her home by a strange woman who wants her unborn baby. (82 mins.)
“ Oh my god, the French definitely have a taste for blood that is having trouble being quenched, especially based upon this film. While it does lack the finality and extreme lack of hope that we saw in Martyrs; Inside still delivers on atmosphere, subject matter and an all out, unflinchingly brutal gore fest. This is a nice flick worth popping some popcorn over and inviting the friends. ” - nsederstrom

Mysterious Skin (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
A teenage hustler and a young man obsessed with alien abductions cross paths, together discovering a horrible, liberating truth. (105 mins.)
Director: Gregg Araki
“ While not graphic in the sense of gore by any means, the subject matter and events portrayed here are hard to sit through. Dealing with child abuse themes always seem to hit home the most, and this one is no exception. Really makes you think after its done, as well as questioning how some people can be so overt and awful. Great flick, but a tough watch. ” - nsederstrom
 
7.
Ken Park (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.9/10 X  
Ken Park is about several Californian skateboarders' lives and relationships with and without their parents. (93 mins.)
“ A hard to find indie flick that rawly depicts teenagers and their *beep* up lives in an unblinkingly realistic manner. Similar to the directors other film "Kids," Ken Park takes a deep look into the oft-overlooked, depraved world of teenagers. ” - nsederstrom
 
8.
Monster (2003)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.3/10 X  
Based on the life of Aileen Wuornos, a Daytona Beach prostitute who became a serial killer. (109 mins.)
Director: Patty Jenkins
“ Charlize Theron delivers a much deserved Best Actress in this movie about a female serial killer in Florida. Whats most intriguing is how Patty Jenkins portrays our main character in a light that is almost sympathetic. The film is very forward and honest in its imagery and tone; its gritty, raw and designed to drive its point home: what happens here is not pretty, and should not be glamorized in anyway. ” - nsederstrom

Irreversible (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
Events over the course of one traumatic night in Paris unfold in reverse-chronological order as the beautiful Alex is brutally raped and beaten by a stranger in the underpass. (97 mins.)
Director: Gaspar Noé
“ While this movie mostly has a reputation for its two most famous scenes, there is a much deeper, darker level present that draws you in. Essentially a tragic love story, it's like watching an impending car crash in slow motion. You know what's going to happen, and there's nothing you can do to prevent. Truly an emotionally provoking film. The French do it again! ” - nsederstrom

Deadgirl (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
Two high school boys discover an imprisoned woman in an abandoned mental asylum who cannot die. (101 mins.)
“ The imagery itself here isn't too hard to handle, but what is even more depraved is the mindset of the boys and what they think is acceptable at the beginning of the film and then towards the end. A nice watch, with an interesting premise. ” - nsederstrom
