What are the most bizarre/gross/weird films you have ever seen? And if you saw them as a young child (or an adult), did they ever effect how you felt or thought of things? Did they leave you feeling weirded out? Scared? Confused? Alter your perception of the world? This had me thinking the other day, back in school I'd have conversations with friends and fellow movie buffs on "films with good special effects that did not rely (or rely heavily) on CGI", sometimes the 80's Fly remake was brought up and girls would get grossed out just remembering it. I remembered all the times girls and women told me that film freaked them out. Why? Brundle-Fly. That's why. The final moments of the film become a flat-out gross fest. People in our discussion even admitted to vomiting once they saw that scene. So anyways, have you ever seen a film (maybe as a kid) so bizarre/gross/weird that it left you feeling weirded out or scared? This happened to me a lot as a little kid. I would see some weird movie with a monster or gore or just some wacky sci-fi flick and it would leave me feeling weird, confused, and scared. I guess it comes from hounding the Sci-Fi channel in hopes of catching a Godzilla or Gamera film. Funny thing is, now that I've seen the films that scared me as a kid again, I laugh at them because my memories of them as a child were far more horrifying than what was actually put on film. Heck, if I remade the films today the way I remembered them as a kid, they'd probably be banned for the sheer amount of gore and horrific imagery. A child's imagination is an unbelievably powerful thing. Take for example, the original TROLL 2 film. Mocked highly by the Internets, my fragile little five year old mind became horrified of the creatures and feared that everyone was out to get me. Yeah, now that I look back, it amazes me what a child's imagination can do to how they perceive things and remember scenes from the film. Let's just say there was a lot more guts and "green gooey stuff." It also didn't help that around the same time I watched some monster movie on the Disney channel with the Dad from Growing pains who was going to marry this chick that turned out to be a Succubus, an Ernest film with more Trolls that hate milk, and John Carpenter's The Thing. All those films weirded me out even more and oddly enough, all the monsters from these films were parading around in human disguises. I think that may have attributed to me being a very shy child of 5 who would hide behind his parents upon being introduced to "strangers" who were in actually nothing more than friends of the family!
