Very true. If I'm with my big brother, it's fine; it's extra fun, actually, but with my parents, it can be odd. When I was a teen, I was so shy, I'd walk away and pretend to not be interested to impress my parents.

I'd say the hardest scenes to watch involve violence that I could physically carry out because I'm partly afraid I could go mad and do these things:

1. American Psycho: the oral sex scene is so terrifyingly cruel.

2. Pan's Labyrinth: the wine bottle scene in which the fascist commander finds the farmers. Just awful; I wish I'd never seen it! Didn't care for the morally simplistic film, either.

3. Fight Club: the scene in which Edward Norton is beating that guy almost to death really scares me; I once lost control in a fight when I was 5 and, out of fear of my own strength, I've never fought again. This illustrates that fear.

The rape scene in The Accused scarred me for life.

Now look I love 'Showgirls' - it's crass, campy trash - one of the best unintentional comedies ever. However there are two scenes that just derail the whole thing.

1. Elizabeth Berkely and Kyle MacLachlan going at it in the swimming pool. It is juts gross and the fact that there are rumours they were really going at it at the directors urging... yuck.

2. The rape scene and the high kicking Power Ranger Nomi Malone shit that follows it. It just seems that an hour and a half into the film the writer suddenly thought he needed to make a big statement. So yeah - rape is bad - we know that. However glorifying violence for the sake of violence is sickening.

Apart from those two scenes I love that shit ass film.

Vivisection scenes are about the only things that make me cringe a bit; rape, murder, rape of murder victims, sex, drugs and rock'n'roll are all fine but something about dismantling a person while they are still alive is quite disconcerting to me.

For some reason I have no problem with a movie like Cannibal Holocaust

The plot for that movie sounds hilarious.

I'd say any movie with a graphic rape scene kind of makes me uncomfortable.

The worst rape scene I've ever seen was in Death Wish II. Not only was it graphic, but it went on for several minutes.

Nothing is worse than the rape scene in Irreversible.

That's just...horrifying.

The ending of Dancer in the Dark. It was plain sadistic.

Dancer In The Dark just floors me - it is so... emotionally wrenching - and that may be the hardest thing. When a film gets you invested with the characters (which in theory any good film should) it is really hard going when something happens.

Poor Selma. When the music cuts out... wow.

Hell yes. I've never looked at an Achilles Tendon the same way since.

I bought American History X recently, never having seen it before. Now I'm not sure I can.
