The Last House on the Left (1972, Directed by Wes Craven) Synopsis: A group of escaped convicts kidnap two young women from good homes and force them to commit humiliating sexual acts. Why This Film Was Chosen: I needed a film from the rape/revenge sub-genre of exploitation films, and I thought I Spit on Your Grave sucked. Key Disturbing Moment: The escaped convicts force one of the young women to soil her jeans for their amusement. vs. Gummo (1997, Directed by Harmony Korine) Synopsis: A look into the lives of the residents of a small Ohio town once decimated by a tornado. Why This Film Was Chosen: Don't listen to critics who describe this film as hyperrealistic. I've seen the Appalachians and the Rust Belt, and people there actually live like the characters of this film. Key Disturbing Moment: Too many to count...I'd say the film's authenticity is what makes it disturbing.
