Most sexually explicit violent films (10+1list)

Most sexually explicit violent films

written by Souranath Banerjee

Most sexually explicit violent films: A complete contrast to the earlier sexually explicit erotic films listthese movies are those which portrays sex in a much more Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsaggressive and violent fashion.

Not for the weak-hearted, sensitive audience since the films in this list invariably contain multiple scenes of graphic sexual violence, brutality and sadism in some form.

Definitely NOT recommended for any non-adults.

Fetishes, obsessions, extreme fascinations and manias – these films probably represent all the grim sufferings, sickening chaos and intolerable disturbance in our world.

So, the most sexually explicit violent films – let the madness begin.

A revenge flick portrayed never before with such graphic violence and cold blooded reality.

Directed by Meir Zarchi, this is one of the most brutal films ever, completely unapologetic, savage and sexually violent.     

A few remakes has been made more recently keeping the story-line pretty much the same I Spit on Your Grave (2010), I Spit on Your Grave 2 (2013).

The Last House on the Left (2009) is another such flick that revolves around the same lines of vengeance and extreme sexual violence.

9. Eden Lake (2008)

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4g1wYEAWOrs

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsThis is the story of a couple on a romantic weekend to a remote lake but then a gang of troublesome local kids starts terrorising them, turning their holiday a living hell.

Ôdishon (original title)

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uR1DnkweK5U

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsA very special audition that takes place, through which a wealthy widower expects to find his new wife. But the introvert, mysterious girl he falls for unfortunately turns out to be a psychopath!

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsAfter a car accident a man discovers an underground cult of car-crash victims and their weird world of sexual fantasies – scarred, wounded, trapped and yet intensely sexual!

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YnGhW4UEhc

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-films

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfENjj_VqfQ

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsOne of the most dangerous films I have seen in my life, danger that turns obsessions into reality.

This French horror treats cannibalism in its most frightening form. Scenes that are so sensual but then there is always that danger lurking around, the terrifying obsession that turns people into animals!

Directed by Claire Denis, it’s about lust and the fetish for human blood!

4. Antichrist (2009)

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBdDcQONmkM

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OU-ZOHeWLkU

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsDirected by famous Argentinian filmmaker Gaspar Noé, a dark psychological thriller, extremely black and violent in its content, and the way it has been shot (dizzy camera movements) only adds to the stress level.

The infamous 10 minute long rape scene (performed by Monica Bellucci) in the film is probably the most vicious and raw exploitation scene ever shot in the history of cinema!

Film trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddwrbcMmzlc

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsA man will go to any length in order to protect his family, or at least try to.

In this film, an aging porn-star’s life takes a somersault when he agrees to sign  what seemed to be an ‘art film’ but later turned out to be something awfully grotesque and disturbing.

Pedophilia and necrophilia, rape, torture and incest – directed by Srdjan Spasojevic this film is a whirlpool of everything disturbing and deranged  that exists in this world.

and (The ‘+1 film is not necessarily the best but certainly the most disturbing one. A must watch)

+1. Cannibal (2006)

Film clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10hnrX_nAc4

Most-sexually-explicit-violent-filmsDirected by Marian Dora, this German film is probably the most odd and gory one in the list – considering this list that already says a lot about the movie. 

Based on a man’s cannibalistic obsession he puts an internet ad looking for someone to agree on an obsessive fetish for willing to be eaten alive!

And guess what, he actually finds a man ready to be the victim (voluntarily), and believe it or not, this film is based on a true story!
