Topic: More Horror Than Horror
What (non-horror) films would you consider to be genuinely more scary / disturbing than actual horror films? I mean really, horror films stopped being even remotely frightening for me since the onset of puberty (a long time ago sigh).
Two spring immediately to my mind...
Deliverance - (one of my all time favorite films) 4 friends go on a canoeing / fishing trip somewhere in the sticks and are having a great time until they run into a couple of very unpleasant hillbillies. This film also has my favorite / most satisfying screen death.
War Zone - Can't remember very much about it (only watched it once a very long time ago) other than it is very bleak, very depressing / disturbing and deals with some very unpleasant subject matter. I will watch this again soon I think, just to see if it still hits as hard.
So, for you, what's more horrific than horror?
