Not many films could ever render me speechless. This one did.

Another snuff-themed film, a fake documentary that leaves you empty by the time it ends.

This film never gets grotesque, which makes it even more disturbing. And to quote one, the film has "a shot that will haunt you forever."

80 min | Horror

Secret organization abducts, tortures, and kills people to make snuff films.

Director: Marcelo Leguiza | Stars: Lucas Alonso, Pablo Anastasi, Noelia Antúnez, Analia Belen

Votes: 39

Has a couple of boringly unnecessary "talk" scenes to take a breath in between the action, but the protagonist and intensity make up for it.

6. Begotten (1989)

Unrated | 72 min | Fantasy, Horror

Presented in a surreal, gory and entirely visual manner, Begotten tells of the death of religion, the abuse of nature by Man and a nihilistic outlook on what life ultimately is.

Director: E. Elias Merhige | Stars: Brian Salzberg, Donna Dempsey, Stephen Charles Barry, James Gandia

Votes: 10,423

Never lives up to its opening scene, quite boring at times. You just have to be in the right mood for its bleak cinematographic uniqueness.

TV-MA | 93 min | Horror

A mentally ill homeless man begins a killing spree on the streets of New York City.

Directors: Doug Gerber, Caleb Pennypacker | Stars: Kevin Kenny, Samantha Bogach, Jamie Greco, James Quall

Pure insanity with a lead villain you will never forget.

The story of the infamous Unit 731. There's not much gore, yet it's compensated by the fact that such things actually happened.
