Of all the unforgettables this may be the most upsetting
And its not that you see so much grotesque stuff, you do but thats not the point, but the tension is so taut that it shook me up quite a bit. I have seen Argento and Bava movies with my girlfriend and she didn't get much queasy by that, when we saw this however she really had enough with it two thirds in. And I can sympathize with that quite easily. There is just something that can really torment one and haunt for a long time like very few others, 'Cannibal Holocaust', even if that was silly, and 'Irreversible' spring to mind. Whether its the claustrophobic lighting and location, the excellent actors, the contemplations of Aki or the conclusion of it all is uncertain. Anyway, its a masterpiece, if a disturbing one.
