It could be vomit-inducingly gory, buttock-crampingly suspenseful, involve catastrophic acting, bring up unpleasant memories or feature a close-up of Ernest Borgnine, but what movie scene do you have the most difficulty sitting through?

One of the worst for me is the pavement-bite in American History X, I wince just thinking about it.

Yep that is brutal. Whenever someone mentions it,everyone who has seen it scrunches up their face and winces.
The scene towards the end of Oldboy when he
Spoiler:
cuts his tongue off
for me was pretty strong.

I remember a strange, completely gratuitous sex scene involving Christian Slater in In the Name of the Rose - that was pretty horrible.

For me its one I always remember from being an art student nearly 20 years ago and that is the eyeball scene in Un Chien Andalou.

Agree about the tongue scene in Oldboy, the octopus scene was also unpleasant - wondered how they'd staged it then found out it was for real.

Saw Misery in the cinema, there were was much squealing & averting of eyes when the "anybody who's seen it will know which bit!!" that compelling and rich mentioned above happened.

This is the Un Chien Andalou scene http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2380267801/

Quite a few scenes in Christiane F get to me, have a fear of needles so watching smackheads spiking themselves in toilets takes some determination.

Someone mentioned it in the 'moving scenes' thread, but the 'emotional speech' in Patch Adams is so nauseating I would imagine many people will have died of dehydration having sat all the way through it.

The scene from Un Chien Andalou is just about as horrible as it gets. Apparently they used a bulls eye.

I'm not a fan of body horror and there's a few David Cronenbourg films I can't watch. Videodrome is just horrible - the whole VHS in the stomach thing is nauseating and generally I find the horrific images in his films to be too stark and too real.

For me, I always have to turn the volume down and look away at the Saving Private Ryan scene where *(name escapes me)* gets stabbed in the heart. Dreadful.

The water buffalo slaughter in Apocalypse Now & a few disturbing ones involving animal torture/killing in Cannibal Holocaust (the one with the pig is the worst) - I'm not exactly a bunny hugger but can't stomach cruelty to animals.

The most cringeworthy scene I can remember seeing was an awful line in the equally awful "Showdown in Little Tokyo" where Brandon Lee turns to Dolph Lundgren (his cop partner) and says:

"Kenner, just in case we get killed, I wanted to tell you, you have the biggest d*** I've ever seen on a man". WTF???!!! Shocked

It is by FAR the most excruciatingly painful and pointless scene I have witnessed in a movie.

Eden Lake springs to mind, but as disturbing as it may sound I enjoy watching things like that. I like American History X and enjoyed the contraversial theme and actions involved with it. I've not seen the film Misery, but I have watched that scene you are all talking about, ouch springs to mind. Not seen Oldboy. Is that the japanese film? It's on sky movies quite often so now I think I'll get around to watching it having heard all this!

The worst film I've seen, by far, is Antichrist with Willem Dafoe. I really hate seeing people mutilate their, you know... It's like you can feel the pain just by watching it. Apart from that it was a very odd film.

I really enjoyed that film. It felt like some tripped out version of the Hansel and Gretel fairytale. Original and unusal film. I know the bit you mean though, when Charlotte Gainsbourg's character self-multilates her mimsy. Gruesome. It is not the most unwatchable part of Antichrist though. That 'honour' happens right at the beginning when the toddler falls from the window and hits the snow dead. All set to classical music and a black and white screen. I find that part almost unwatchable. I admire the cinematography but it a heartbreaking scene and plays on a whole bunch of fears.

I hate the scene in Trainspotting as well when Renton, Sickboy and the others are smacked out in their gubby flat and the baby dies. The screaming mother and blue, motionless baby makes for a gut wrenching piece of cinema.

Agreed. Foul film..........fullstop.

The Misery scene is an obvious classic. Never seen American History X but watched the pavement scene on you tube and yes, pretty horrible.

Yeah I considered putting a (c) Superflyweight 2012 asterix next to the word mimsy but thought that would be just a bit weird mate. Just be proud that you've added a word to my rather limited vocabularly.

I'm more offened that you're still claiming to have only read a fraction of 50 Shades of Grey, superfly. No-one believes you pal.

Has anyone seen a film called Come and See? It is a Belarussian made film about Partisan forces in WWII. By a guy called Elem Klimov. It is really moving and brutal in parts and has 'unwatchable' moments in it. Harrowing film. It's like a less Hollywood version of Defiance.

There's a castration scene in Hostel 2 too. I hate castration scenes. I did get around to watching Oldboy via Netflix. Great film, but don't see what was so unwatchable about those apparent unwatchable scenes?

What's this talk of human centipede then, does somebody take a turd?

Mine is the beach scene in Saving Private Ryan

Like most people I see a movie as a source of entertainment. I don't find it entertaining when they show a war in so much detail when you know this has happened in real life. Its quite depressing really as opposed to entertaining

A myth seems to have developed about this scene - the deed in question happens off-screen I thought??? But I agree it's a very uncomfortable moment to watch.

A news story today about the Magdalene laundries has reminded me that I watched The Magdalene Sisters a few years ago. That had erased itself from my memory until now.

I don't remember any specific scenes now, just that the whole thing was absolutely discomforting.

One of the survivors said the film didn't actually show how bad it really was either.

The most shocking part of that film is the writing on screen at the end that reveals that the last of the laundries closed in 1996!

As a sidenote - one of wife's friends has a small part in that film as a cousin of one of the girls and (spoiler alert) who helps them run away.

Irreversible has been mentioned already and along the disgusting Bellucci scene is the fire extinguisher scene. I'm guessing only me and Sharksoul have seen this film as it would be a main offender on here.

Audition's needle in the eyes torture wasn't easy to watch. I also really struggled to watch the scene where a girl gets thrown into the pit full of syringes in Saw II. Not particularly gory but it's horrible watching her thrash about and ending up resembling a battered porcupine.

How did you get hold of Irreversible? Have tried to Lovefilm it but not available. Prefer not to download if possible.

Going back to unwatchable scenes - the nude ones of Tilda Swinton in War Zone were particularly horrible. I think she's quite attractive but they were filmed not long after she'd given birth to twins.

Bought it off Play.com years ago on the cheap. Wouldn't have bothered if it was one of those you could rent from Blockbuster but was told it was probably the most controversial film made at the time so I decided to give it a go. It was, although I have heard about this Serbian Film and it sounds like that would take that title nowadays.

Cheers, might buy it then and add it to the pile of hundreds that I've bought but don't watch.

Have seen A Serbian Film, don't think it was that bad. Most of the controversial parts are worse in your imagination than in the film.

Most Unwatchable Scene In Cinema History Empty Re: Most Unwatchable Scene In Cinema History

A friend of mine told me there is two versions of Serbian, one that is fairly bad but has been cut to shreds by the censorship lot and then an uncut one, which he has apparently seen. He said it was beyond disgusting and something you couldn't watch twice unless you have some issues. From what he told me about it, it is something I won't bother watching and I am far from easily offended.

The version I saw tied in with the parental advisory section on IMDB so I think I've seen the nastier one. I meant by imagination that it was worse how I pictured it knowing beforehand what to expect rather than what was left to the imagination. It's not actually that bad a film, not great, but doesn't rely solely on shocks. One of those should watch but wouldn't bother rewatching.
