When it comes to the movie watching experience, we as audience members can be highly affected by what we see on the screen. Whether it's a tragedy unfolding that brings tears to our eyes, romantic comedies that make us laugh, or moving dramas that make us think, the medium of film is a powerful one. We might not be scared to go to bed alone at night after a horror film, though; with so much regular blood and gore and an often predictable plotline, horror movies have become increasingly diluted and these days it's more about the fun in the experience.

But what about those movies that really shake all to our cores, leaving us that bit more permanently horrified by humanity than we were before?

When it comes to these sorts of movies, of course, the accolade of 'disturbing' debatable, as it's a subjective idea. With so many taboos already broken in mainstream media, movies goers have become almost immune to Hollywood's version of torture and gore. However, some stand-out movies have been consistently cited as some of the most truly horrifying pieces of cinematic art in history.

This is the top ten list of disturbing films that have shocked many citizens of the general public - the ten movies which have been most commonly reported to be the 'most disturbing'. There's not a slasher flick or serial killer in site; rather, these films make even the most inured horror fans think twice about the boundaries of human resilience. Be warned, some descriptions here contain spoilers, and are not for the faint hearted...

1 A Serbian Film - UNCUT (2010)

“A Serbian Film” tells the story of a retired adult star looking to get back into the business who gets an offer he can't refuse. Unfortunately there's something darker and more sinister to the offer than meets the eye. With the sexual acts in the movie becoming more and more depraved and inhumane, the finale involves an unspeakable act that really pushes the film over the edge - making it almost unwatchable for most viewers.
