And to be even MORE U cos I am bloody (no pun intended) watching the shite?

I agree with sons of anarchy being traumitising, I love the show and I love a good horror but the first episode was truly disturbing.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 19:51:14

Oh i have been made aware of an even worse film called, The War Zone, its apparently truely horrific. Its got Ray Winstone in it.

SPB It's my own bloody fault for being naive and thinking it wouldn't be as bad or nearly as graphic as it actually was and no, you're not being pearl clutchey, the makers of that film are truely disgusting. I honestly didn't believe there would be any movie out there as bad as that.

Greg The makers apparently said it was art because it showed what actually happens in Serbia or something like that. It's not, it's just filth.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 17:56:38

Violence towards children, is not fucking art, its called being a vile twat for attention, even thinking about what i read is making my stomach heave.

Schro, im sorry you saw it, but I'm glad we're all in agreement. I thought when I wad writing what I did that I felt a bit pearl clutchey but I am not am I. I'm not surprised you're haunted. I felt tainted and awful for a while after and that was just reading the wiki. Like I said the only plus in my case was that otherwise Dh would have watched it. I agree the writers should be locked up, not sure how I reconcile that with my belief in freedom of speech but I don't care. Some things are just too horrific.

thats one film I will NEVER watch

I am still traumatised by Sons of Anarchy Season 5 premiere, days it took

I've watched it. I didn't realise it was nearly as bad or graphic as it was.

I have honestly never been as affected by a film as I have that, I cried and had nightmares after it. It's fucking horrible and the film makers should be put in prison.

Apparently it's 'art' <throws fucking up>.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 17:22:07

No idea, but my friend was assistant manager, she hated having disgusting shit like that in her shop.

fromparistoberlin Mon 25-Feb-13 17:17:25

greg

what kind of twat gets a serbian film out? jesus, shit for brains! read the back cover

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 14:01:32

SPB I also read the wiki entry, it nearly made me sick, you'd have to have a strong stomach to watch that. And a weird imagination to actually make something like that.

I read the wikipeedia entry for that, it is disgusting and has stayed with me since. I wish I hadn't, though in a way I'm glad as Dh brought home a load of films he'd borrowed from a colleague and I could tell him a tiny bit about it to stop him watching it. Good on her for snappping it. I actually question the motives of the person/people who wrote it Tbh. It is sick. And I've seen saw and quite a lot of gory horror.

BlueSkySunnyDay Mon 25-Feb-13 13:58:19

meh! I dont like horror, I dont watch it.

Not my place to say what channels show or other people should watch!

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 13:55:23

There is one film i've heard of but never seen called Serbian Film, apparently its meant to be absolutely disgusting, my friend used to work at blockbuster, when the customer brought the DVD back, horrified, she snapped the disc.

Fakebook Mon 25-Feb-13 13:40:30

I loved the SAW films until I got to the 5th or 6th one where the detective disappeared in some glass container or something at the end. It got boring. I still don't know who was carrying out the final games.

SAW is better than Human Centipede IMHO.

Stangirl Mon 25-Feb-13 13:12:02

The first one is brilliant. I also enjoyed the others but then I love that kind of thing.

The first one though is clever and well made the sequels are not.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 13:08:57

Number 5 will be out in October, MrsJay, im kinda willing on to scare the shit out of me, coz im a wimp, but they just dont manage it.

mrsjay Mon 25-Feb-13 12:49:47

Im ashamed to admit that i just keep watching everything Paranormal Activity that comes out.

are we not on paranormal activity 10 or something grin ch5 show sex shows disguised as 'educational and informative' saw is a nothing, ere im old enough to remember the red triangle on channel 4 blush

YABU. It's after the watershed & all that...

It's also a crap film but so are most of the ones on channel 5 smile

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 12:45:30

I watched the first Saw, realised it was shit, didnt bother with the rest. Im ashamed to admit that i just keep watching everything Paranormal Activity that comes out.

mrsjay Mon 25-Feb-13 12:44:21

why are you surprised at them being aired it is a gore/horror film on late it was in the cinema and on DVd so why not on telly <shrug> I hate saw but i dont see why they shouldnt show it,

SpinningBirdKick Mon 25-Feb-13 12:37:57

What gets me is that Channel four (or Film4) haven't shown Saw 5 or 6 yet- so we're out of sync with the (very shallow) storyline!
For instance- the people in the support group are from Saw 5/6-

Not that you're missing much, mind!

Ooh yes GregBishopsBottomBithc - thousands of "Erotic Thrillers" with Shannon Tweed in them grin

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 01:42:03

Infact, Channel 5 had alot of smut on.

ComposHat Mon 25-Feb-13 01:39:40

oh yes the Red Shoe Diaries!

The internet giving ready access to grot probably did for the softcore porn films.

GregBishopsBottomBitch Mon 25-Feb-13 01:33:28

Channel 5 have gone upmarket now, remember when they showed all those softcore pornos, not that i ever watched them hmm
