How do you classify what’s dangerous? Obviously, “dangerous” here doesn’t mean that these movies are going to hurt you physically. But what if a film psychologically “hurts” you? A film that leaves such a lasting impression on your mind that you can’t sleep or function right for a couple of days. Some of you might say that is impossible for a film to have such psychological impact. To which, I would say: “You haven’t watched the films on this list”. I remember watching ‘Funny Games’ and despite not particularly liking it, I couldn’t brush the film off my mind. It was difficult to not think what if the incidents in the film happened to me. Hopefully I was able to make the meaning of “dangerous” clear in this article’s context. Here is the list of top 20 most dangerous movies ever made.
20. Enter the Void (2009)
A Gasper Noe’s flick, ‘Enter the Void’ is a first person’s rendering of the delusions and nightmares mostly faced by Oscar, a drug dealer who lives in Tokyo with his younger sister Linda. The video-game kind of setting, fantasies, glowy and flashy colours, voyeurism on people having sex with fluorescent genitals, and bodily fluids, makes ‘Enter the Void’ a dangerous watch.
19. Moebius (2013)
A story of incest, adultery and involving scenes of castration, Moebius is spot on for a disturbing genre of revenge and sorrow combined, with an Asian flavour to it. A mother who is rather troubled by her husband’s affair is headed to castrate him, only to castrate her son instead and ends up eating his phallus. That’s enough to completely fu*k your mind.
