    Ooh, oh, and how could I forget about this one ? It looks like exactly the kind of things you're looking for!

    These ones are old, but I don't know how well-known they are. They're classics to me.
    I don't know if they count as horror in the stricter meaning of the term but they're certainly dark.

    The Reflecting Skin

    The passion of Darkly Noon
    I couldn't find a good trailer for this one...

    @Wood: I love The Ordeal. It's just so wrong.

    Anyone seen Jug Face? It looks like it could fit on this thread, but I've yet to watch it.

    Severance is superb, and contains the most blackly funny scene of the last decade or so (when the company exec accidentally shoots down a passenger jet).

    Jan Svankmajer's awesome Conspirators of Pleasure in its entirety:

    @Cat Vincent

    Same here :) It was one of the awesomest moments of my life when I visited Svankmajer's gallery in Prague. Lovely little place.

    The emotionally darkest film that I wanted to forget after seeing it is this one:

    A Serbian Film

    This film put off any desire I had to watch Spider-Man movies for weeks:

    The Descent

    This Korean New Wave film came out before "Memento," but it used the same storytelling device to go to some incredibly dark places:

    Peppermint Candy

    Thanks! At least half of these are new to me, and the rest are gold.

    And lurkers: YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEE A SERBIAN FILM. I'm not shitting you.

    It really depends on whether or not you enjoy the idea of fucking a gushing headless corpse.

    Something equally as disturbing happens at the end of Visitor Q, but in a (kind of) funnier way.

    Or watching a newborn baby get raped to death.

    Wow that makes Martyrs look like a disney movie

    I watched A Serbian Film the other night. I dunno if there was a message in it, apart from sickos like to have sex with anything living or dead. It was fucked-up, but it didn't get to me on any sort of disturbing level.

    The white-trash bastards in Eden Lake; now them I find disturbing!

    hey ho peeps!

    Lots of great suggestions, especially from Nigredo and Cat (Ben Wheatley is THE DADDY!). but here are some nicely fucked up movies that are worth watching...

    TONY is fucking brilliant. Haven't seen MUM & DAD yet, but I'm tracking down a copy. Thanks! (And my wife thanks you all too).
