Extreme Cinema: List of Disturbing Films Compendium A-D

Looking for a comprehensive list of extremely disturbing films? You came to the right place! We are constantly updating this list with film titles that represent the best of the worst. By that we mean films that are highly controversial, banned, hard to watch and unsettling.

A better way to put it is “Beyond Extreme”. The list is one of the most complete in the world only lacking those we haven’t gotten to yet to decide upon. You can of course help us by commenting on film titles that aren’t listed here below in the comments. As we dig up nasty cinematics from the past, we are constantly coming across foreign titles that have eluded us to add to the list.

The list has been divided up into sections so that viewers can absorb the massive amounts of disturbing movies that have been created or are circulating in some capacity. If you are looking for “Asian CAT III” film titles,  or Tokyo Gore Style, we have devoted a whole page “just” to those alone. Asian films in this department have been overwhelming, so they get their own spot

On with the nastiness!

Title missing? We want to hear from you! Comment below and we’ll check it out to add to list

Note: This list represents additional selections that were chosen for their content. The extreme content varies in each whether that means gore, rape, incest, violence or other (in other words, they are not equally disturbing for the same reasons). They were chosen due to their special qualities that puts them in a more isolated class than straight horror genre releases. We don’t condone the actions being illustrated in some of these, but rather are calling them out  for what they are (which is also fiction for that matter, and not real life!!!)
