Later on, they tie a neighbour up to the bath tap and really torture him pulling his nails out and using pliers to cut his big toe off.Not only was it  frightening but you heard every gory sound as they crunshed and hacksawed their victims.I saw it on the bigscreen at the Cinema where it really looked and sounded gruesome but on a dvd at home may not look as bad....
There was another Aussie film Animal Kingdom which was about some low life bank robbers which was filmed in a similar vein plus of course Wolf Creek which had its moments......

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (the original not the remake).

Very powerful and disturbing film.  Not particularly gory by today's standards,
and apparently it was NOT based on a true story. And the characters
and the scary bits are not really that remarkable,
the plot and the story is extremely simple. Yet this is
a masterpiece in low-budget horror.  Some more recent low-budget horror films don't even come close.

The mood and the atmosphere is so dark and sadistic
the film really disturbs.  Years ago when I seen it for the first time it scared the sh1t out of me.

1. Seed.

It's not a particularly well made film but the footage of real animals being tortured is very unpleasant.
There's also a five minute sequence of a woman being hit with a hammer.

The director clearly just wanted to offend as many people as possible and to a certain extent succeeded.
Hopefully he gets hit by a car or something in karmic retribution.

2. Spit on your grave (the remake)

The only remake of one of these kinds of films that went further than the original.
It possibly works because its sleek modern look makes the viewer expect another watered down remake.
Virtually no plot, just an excuse for an extended sequence of some genuinely nightmarish images.

3. Repulsion (polanski)

Unlike Seed and I Spit, this is actually a good film.
The best thing Deneuve ever did and the claustrophobic atmosphere is conveyed superbly.

In fact Polanski's combined Horror portfolio has more going for it than the entire 'torture porn' scene.

Johnny Got His Gun (1971)

Watched it as a kid... Disturbed me then.

Synopsis

Joe Bonham (Bottoms), a young American soldier hit by an artillery shell during World War I, lies in a hospital bed. He is a quadruple amputee who has also lost his eyes, ears, mouth and nose. He remains conscious and able to reason, however, rendering him a prisoner in his own body. As he drifts between reality and fantasy, he remembers his old life with his family and girlfriend (Kathy Fields). He also forms a bond, of sorts, with a young nurse (Diane Varsi) who senses his plight.

At the end of the film, Joe tries to communicate to his doctors, via Morse code, and wishes for the Army to either put him in a glass coffin in a freak show as a demonstration of the horrors of war, or kill him. In the end, however, he realizes that the Army will grant neither wish, and will leave him in a state of living death.

In the film's climax, his nurse attempts to euthanize him by clamping his breathing tube, but her supervisor stops her before Joe can succumb. This does not occur in the novel. The film ends with Joe weakly chanting "S.O.S. Help me."

Was shown it by a teacher it when I was seven, repressed memory came back about five years ago and thanks to the internet, I was able to check my mind wasn't playing tricks. It really was the most messed up thing imaginable. I'm sure some of you will remember it, even if you don't want to. It's about the dangers of playing around train lines. Now...my village didn't even have a railway. To be in danger I would, ironically, have had to take a six mile bus journey.
