Top 10 Ridiculously Extreme Movies

#2 300

King Leonidas and a force of 300 men fight the Persians at Thermopylae in 480 B.C.

300 is a 2007 American action film adapted from a graphic novel of the same name by Frank Miller, a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. The film was directed by Zack Snyder, while Miller served as executive producer and consultant. It was filmed mostly with a super-imposition chroma keytechnique, to help replicate the imagery of the original comic book.

300 was released in both conventional and IMAX theaters in the United States on March 9, 2007, and on DVD, Blu-ray, and HD DVD on July 31, 2007. The film’s opening was the 24th largest in box office history, although critics were divided over its look and style. Some acclaimed it as an original achievement, while others criticized it for favoring visuals over characterization and its controversial depiction of the ancient Persians.

#1 The Passion of the Christ

A film detailing the final hours and crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

The Passion of the Christ is a 2004 film directed by Mel Gibson and starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus which dramatizes the Passion of Jesus largely according to the Christian Bible’s New Testament Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.The Passion of the Christ largely covers the final twelve hours of Jesus’ life beginning with the Agony in the Garden and ending with a brief depiction of his resurrection. Flashbacks of Jesus as a child, when Jesus worked as a carpenter, the Sermon on the Mount, the saving of Mary Magdalene from beingstoned to death, and the Last Supper are also included.

The film’s dialogue is entirely in reconstructed Aramaic, Latin, and Hebrew with vernacular subtitles. Fr. William J. Fulco, a Jesuit and professor of ancient Mediterranean studies at Loyola Marymount University, translated the original English script into the ancient languages and also served as the production’stheological consultant.

    300? Really?
    Where’s Salò? Last House on the Left?

  2. Eithan says:

    Really excited that this movie finally come out October 1st on VOD called Scar! It’s in 3D!! Looks insane! Wonder how much blood they spilled on the set… lol

  3. Caio says:

    not that good, i would watch the 2D version… lots of blood, bad bad acting

  4. Dante says:

    I could disagree more with 300 and even Kill Bill. Kill Bill is bloody, but not as violent as one would believe. It’s so way over the top, that it really doesn’t even sink in as violent. 300 was just…not that bad. Judging from the rest of the list, you believe violence to be a combonation of gore and acts of violence. Yes, there are loads of killings, but they really toned down the violence in terms of the graphic nature it could have been. Replace it with one of the (ridiculous) movies like Saw or something in that line then I’ll bite. The rest is spot-on.

  5. Soroh says:

    I cannot believe you didn’t mention MARTYRS in this article. That is one of the most disgusting, and disturbing movies everrrr made…period.

  6. Evan says:

    A day of violence

  7. Nagwind says:

    What about ” Man bites dog” ?!!! “Clockwork orange” is a Mickey mouse compared to that film… ;-((
    Also: Africa adieu? Documentary but regardless – Truly nasty man!!! That film should be number two. I just saw that Google is even “banning” me to find it now!!! >>:-(

  8. owen says:

    august underground series should be first by miles. Those are Disney movies compared to most pf these

    • nutstomper says:

      Yeah man, even I won’t watch the August Underground flicks. I heard Snuff 102 and Serbian Film were also pretty insane. You won’t find the most violent films in mainstream media. 300? Passion of the Christ? Give me a break.

  9. Crissy says:

    Kill Bill ?
    Relly guys ? I saw Kill Bill wen I was 7 ( Im 11 ) , that’s my favorite movie . And I’m girl .

  10. Vivek says:

    There’s nothing more bloody than the first fifteen minutes of Saving Private Ryan, mostly because it depicts reality not some gore lover’s fantasy.

  11. Strahd says:

    Another one missing is the Guinea Pig series, most notably the infamous second part, which is so realistic that some people mistook it for a snuff movie.

  12. Eduardo says:

    I’m suprised ninja assassin was not in this list. The first 5 minutes of it were the most violent minutes I have experienced in my life so far.

  13. Irreversible?
    Seriously, you don’t consider a graphic 9 minute rape scene to be violent?
    Followed by the female getting savagely kicked.
    And that was after a 25 minute rampage of rage with an ultralow bass, designed to make you nauseous, that culminated in someone getting their head caved in.
    Now that’s violent.

  14. Jazzmo says:

    Violence must be in the eye of the beholder, and in this case, our media’s controller’s eye. To them, Mexicans getting mowed represents the antithesis to the illegals pouring into America everyday destroying America, our culture and middle class jobs, which is just what the controllers want, and that is another slave third world country. There are much more violent movies than this.

  15. usasoldiern says:

    I can’t take this list seriously when a)300 is on this list, in which the writer seems completely convinced that people are dumb enough to believe that the people represented in the film are actually like that. And, b)obviously quick to consider well regarded, yet violent films like The Wild Bunch as apparently blindly violent.

  16. 101 says:

    Rambo(4) is the most violent American move ever made. The scene where the village gets attacked was incredibly difficult to watch on the big screen.

  17. aersixb9 says:

    Some incredibly violent movies not on the list include saving private ryan, blackhawk down, rambo 4, kick ass, and probably some others. Also if you’re looking for torture instead of action/body count, there’s saw, surprised the saw series didn’t get mentioned, and also if you like your action ‘reality’ based there’s jackass (action stunts and some punching/slapping, nobody dies) and youtube war footage.

  18. mimi says:

    I think that Haneke’s ‘Funny Games’(first, original version in German) should be on that list.

  19. david says:

    What. What. What. Do you even know what violence is. “Irreverisible” & “Dead Alive” most of the violence in ‘A Clockwork Orange’ is off screen, as well as people who said ‘Funny Games’ just because a film is intense doesn’t make it violent, you have to show the blood. C’mon. You’re not even trying you’re only picking what’s popular, do you even watch violent movies. The 300 is a film a 12 year old bitch kid would pick. Rent “Irreversible” & “Dead Alive”/ Hell evil dead is more violent than most all of this. What a copout.

  20. nicoal says:

    List needs more research, could have replaced quite a few with some seriously messed up flicks. I agree Martyrs should have been here, at least.
