32 Films That Made Me Question Humanity

Posted on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 by

I love a good exploitation film. If it's disturbing, disgusting, full of gore and psychological trauma, I'm going to be into it. A few weeks ago, I was talking with a coworker who is new to the genre about some of my favorite fucked up films, and decided to make her a list. I spent many hours in my late teens and early twenties searching for a list just like this, so I was inspired to publish my own. I will preface this list by telling you that this is not an eloquent analysis of disturbing films, nor is this full of obscure gems. In fact, some of these don't even fall within the horror spectrum. This list is merely a collection of films an exploitation/horror/sci fi fan should get their hands on. These are in order from "I can't believe what I just watched," to "I seriously need to take a shower." Enjoy!

Editor's note: This is a beginner's list to the world of disturbing film. I am working on PART TWO of this list, to include gems like ICHI THE KILLER, SOCIETY, and MEGAN IS MISSING. Please let me know in the comments of this post if there are films worth adding!

Late to The Party: Curse of Chucky

I was first introduced to Chucky when my teenage babysitter made me sit through Child's Play when I was five or six years old. The red-haired Good Guy doll tormented my nightmares and genuinely terrified me. As an adult, I seriously appreciate the campy humor and genuine slasher violence of the Child's Play series, and can list the films in my top favorite eighties slasher flicks. 

Curse of Chucky is the newest addition to the Child's Play franchise. This chapter started receiving hype in early 2013, and was released direct to DVD/VOD in September. I received the Child's Play boxset as a Christmas gift from my dear mother, and finally motivated myself to sit down and rewatch a few of the old movies, and of course, Curse of Chucky.
