This thread is for disturbing, gruesome, banned, or otherwise strange movies, films, and animations!
After recently rewatching Midori Shoujo Tsubaki (1992), I have been on a hunt for strange and disturbing films. If you have any, please share! Feel free to write a description, post a screencap, and/or link to a version of the film so others can watch!
They do not neccesarily have to be foreign films or anime at all, anything goes, but I greatly appreciate animated films!
For those unaware, Shōjo Tsubaki, also known as 少女椿 in Japanese or The Camellia Girl, is a 1992 guro film from Japan. It follows a young girl who joins a circus after her mother's death and the horrors within it during early 20th century Japan. It was heavily censored and difficult to find for years due to its incredibly sensitive nature.
Personally, I thought the animation style was beautiful, if disturbing at times. Here is a link to it on YT with english subtitles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-kZB1OW1wM
I will post other disturbing films I have seen below if I can think of any.

Another film from Japan is the 1998 Studio Ghibli film, Grave of the Fireflies. It is a fairly well known film, especially within the Ghibli community and Japan.
The plot follows two young siblings as they try to survive in Japan during the last months of World War 2. It's frankly much more depressing than anything else, but suffering children is still quite disturbing. Some scenes from it will likely stay with me forever. I won't spoil anything in the rare case that someone has never heard of this movie.
Here is a link to it on YT with English subtitles: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs88XQ7bxCU

Another movie I watched recently was Felidae, a German film from 1994.
It follows a murder mystery as a new cat in the neighborhood tries to figure out who's been killing local cats. It's not that disturbing relatively, but there are some rather odd scenes including a cat sex scene that burned itself into my eyes and many animated cat deaths/violence.
Here is a link to one with English subtitles but in German: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oAI33tkxFI

Another cat-themed film is the infamous 1972 Fritz the Cat. It deserves to be here not because its especially violent or gruesome, more so because its a furry's wet fever dream of a mess.
This film is a satirical take on the 70s college lifestyle and the current state of the US back then, which it depicts as crudely as physically possible. It's pretty funny if you can get past how uncomfortable a cat having sex with a crow is.
I have no link as I saw it some time ago, but its truly not hard to find with a bit of searching.

A film I'm sure we have all heard of and probably haven't seen(at least I would hope so). Supposedly the film was meant to be a message to say "don't exploit children for sex stuff" but the film itself ended up exploiting children for sex stuff, weither that was the intention or not, I don't know, it could be but I simply don't have the answers. As you would expect it became very controversial with people describing many scenes as needlessly raunchy and or disturbing, but like everything controversial there will always be people on the other side of the argument. Many people flocked to say it's the right wings attempt at rocking a black directors boat or that people simply just misinterpreted the film and that it's actually okay to use this to make a message, unfortunately it still remains on Netflix and can be watched with no removal of the film in sight. Certainly a landmark of film production going *ahem* certain places.


The Animals of Farthing Wood (It's a tv series though)
90's animated series, had it on VHS and watched it as a kid not really knowing how dark it is. The story is an old well used one of how the animal's current home is unsafe due to humans stealing their land, so they decide to go on a great journey to find a new, safer home. Character eat eachother and get brutally murdered. In one scene, it's warm and cute as mother mouse gives birth to several babies and everyone celebrates. an episode later, a cruel robin steals them one by one, and impales them on a thorn bush. i found the full series on youtube just now but the audio is kinda shid https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLXrlroDDEeaTPQ9U1doskO8gXJ9OfPtDP


Christ, I remember that cartoon. I've no clue what exactly their target audience was but it sure as hell got the message out there strongly, mostly that of "nature is brutal" and "humans are cunts", since the hunting theme popped up quite often and even more emphasized on the show's darkness.



That was a great movie i loved it.

Dear Zachary is seriously one of the most fucked up documentaries I've seen, especially when not knowing why it wasn't meant to be shown to the public. To get hit with the brunt of the tragedy after learning all of these intimate details about this family, it's fucking crushing. Made me feel like absolute shid for the state of the world for a few hours after watching.

On a somewhat brighter side, if you want foreign animation I recommend the works of Jan Svankmajer.

Marquis is a 1989 French-language film, produced in Belgium and France, based on the life and writings of the Marquis de Sade. All the actors wear animal masks, and their voices are dubbed. There are a few scenes involving clay animation.

Ha, that movie with the broom shaped large hadron collider. So the main character is jailed, and his large hadron collider is his only fren he can talk to, oh yeah his large hadron collider have a face and can talk too. There's a scene where he's sexually attracted to a hole in the wall and sticks his large hadron collider in, and the wall seems to enjoy. The fuck did I just wrote


my large hadron collider is my best pal too, i think it sounds like a movie we can watch together


Watership down, and the plague dogs, two stories made by the same authors.
Watership has more of a military/lord of the rings theme and just like the animals of farthing woods, does the whole "human bad" thing in disturbing manners like animals suffocating. also, gore from animals tearing into eachother or getting injured. It has book series, two animated movies, and even a radio play.
The plague dogs deals with human experiments on animals, its such an interesting story and i dont want to spoil it.


Finding Nemo

had a good chuckle there at that suggestion, i guess it's true though with the fish getting mangled by the water pump and the angler fish


The character Dory scares me a lot. It scares me how annoying she is and how she got her own movie a couple of years ago. Nemo flushing himself down the dentist toilet is also creepy.
