NSFW: 10 of History's Most Controversial Horror Films





Last House on the Left: An extreme revenge tale shot in gritty fashion, Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left was met with fury back in 1972. Audiences and critics alike were ill-prepared to embrace such an overt piece of exploitation. And make no mistake; this is definitely exploitation, with very little in the way of a deeper underlying message. In fact, there isn’t much of any message at all here, other than a vicious reminder that payback is a bitch. I suppose if Craven hammered home anything with this piece, it was a cautionary note to the psychopaths of the world: Be careful where you look to take shelter after you’ve raped and tortured a few teenage girls; you may end up getting your just desserts.

The Bunny Game: I’m guessing this is the least known film to make the cut. Don’t sweat it if you aren’t familiar with the pic; to be honest, you’re not missing much. The Bunny Game is about very little more than torture and sadistic thrills. Personally, I don’t find that shit all too thrilling. If there’s nothing to take away from a motion picture, then there’s no need to shoot that motion picture, let alone unleash it on the world. In my mind there’s absolutely nothing to take away from this one. It’s about a prostitute who opts to turn the wrong trick, quickly finding herself on the receiving end of grueling sessions of extreme torture. The sad thing is this may be the most realistic feature in this article, as this seems more likely to happen than most scenarios introduced by the other entrants on this list. I suppose if you’re after nothing more than raw visuals, The Bunny Game may somehow leave you feeling fulfilled. It’s got that craziness in spades.

I thought Martyrs would be on this list. Very powerful film that shocked the fuck out of me when I first saw it and I had to watch it again just so mind could process it.

Yeah Martyrs ruined me after watching it a very powerful film. Why cant acting like that get more recognition ?The emotional depths needed for that role were deep.

Maybe its Matt's own personal list. However, anyone that has seen the abuse featured in the last half hour and its metaphysical context won't forget it. Fantastic.

Salo is so twisted it's downright unbearable at times. Saw it once and don't know if I can ever see it again.

Now this is a DC list. No objections here. As much as I love Chainsaw, I think The Exorcist belongs at the top. Horror fans or not, everyone saw that and had something to say about it.

Snuff is another one i saw part of it while watching Faces of Death when i was a kid i thought i was seeing an actual murder via jigsaw and was horrified nothing i would want to see again. (taken from Wiki)Snuff is a 1976 splatter film, and is most notorious for being marketed as if it were an actual snuff film This picture contributed to the urban legend of snuff films.
