Have you ever watched a movie that made you physically sick? Perhaps a horror movie was too gory, or a film was made in a way that caused motion sickness. If you've ever gotten ill watching a movie, whatever the reason for it, you're far from alone.
Filmmakers have been making movies that made viewers sick since the beginning of cinema. Luis Buñuel, a surrealist who aimed to shock audiences, made Un Chien Andalou in 1929. The film includes a close up of a razor blade cutting into a woman's eye. It shocked and appalled audiences, but also created a ton of buzz. In film school circles, Un Chien Andalou is a staple, largely in part due to Buñuel's shocking razor scene.
Believe it or not, a few of these films may have even led to viewers' demises.
