The Best Movies You Never Want to Watch Again

List Criteria: Vote up any movie that was good, but so gut-wrenchingly sad, disturbing, awkward, scary, or gross that you would never want to sit through it again. Vote down the ones you wouldn't mind watching again - or don't think belong on the list at all.

A list of the most disturbing movies that, for whatever reason, you never, ever want to watch again. This list is full of great movies that you would never re-watch. These disturbing films hit their mark--they affected you, you connected with the characters or the themes...they are great films--but you got it the first time and would be just fine to never be reminded of what you just watched. These are some of the creepiest movies, scariest and saddest films that were ever made.

Each of these films contains at least one heartbreaking or gory scene or truly creepy character that will always be with you, even if you never voluntarily watch any of these disturbing movies again. Whether the movie vividly depicts addiction: like Leaving Las Vegas; drug use: like Requiem for a Dream; rape: like Irreversible; violence: like Nil By Mouth and Salo or it just makes you feel dirty watching it, like Kids...these are all highly acclaimed, disturbing movies that you will try to forget about as soon as you have watched them. Some of the films on this list are depictions of true-life, heartbreaking events, like United 93, or ill-fated love stories, like Brokeback Mountain. These really good, sad movies are on this list because they can still make you cry just thinking about them. 

Vote on this list of the most disturbing movies of all time and add any movie you never want to watch again if it is not on the list.
