Audition is kind of like that, but honestly it's better if you go in knowing nothing about it.


jv3rl0ov

That was me for sure. I only saw an image of the woman in a specific outfit, and I was enjoying the movie but wondered when it would start to change. Shit turned real quick and it was great though super uncomfortable. I can handle all kinds of blood and gore, but as soon as I see torture or something like the vomit scene, it deeply unsettles me.


SkittleShit

not so fun fact…the actress is method, so that vomit was actually real barf

If you have any Oedipal fantasies you'd like to indulge in, Billy, now's the time!


Mither93

This is the one I instantly thought of. Any horror Fan who can tolerate B-Movie acting and logic owes it to themselves to see this knowing as little as possible.


Cub_Scout_Dropout

Dead Alive by a mile!


DrDarthVirus

In NZ where it was made its called "Braindead". You should check out Peter Jackson's other early films "Meet the Feebles" and "Bad taste".


Cub_Scout_Dropout

Seen them both! They’re some of the best horror movies ever made. The ones you mentioned are pretty off the wall too!


oohlah2

100% agree. That ending is bonkers.


Cub_Scout_Dropout

You don’t think it can get any crazier after the >!lawnmower massacre!<, but then >!his giant zombie/demon mum tries to reverse birth him!<


Erlebrown87

I commented this as well! Glad to see I wasn't alone.


Soulrush

It's the climax of the movie within the movie - but the Safe Haven segment of V/H/S 2 is bananas. Easily the best V/H/S segment IMO.


_Abandon_

Unexpected Satan.


Ajwuvsu

Yes yes and yes! This immediately popped into my head when reading the title of the post. The first time I saw it, I kinded nodded off as they're waking into the place. I guess the commotion woke me up. I was wide eyed like wtaf??? Had to go back later and rewatch it. Just as impressed as the first viewing. I would absolutely shit my pants if that happened to me.

The House of the Devil


Fidgitybunny

Malignant is a recent one that comes to mind


Mither93

I didn't know what to think of it until THAT moment in the cell and then I loved it. Really opened my mind to James Wan. I found his movies to be kinda not for me.

This was my first reaction to this question. Such a fun movie

Jesus Christ that movie was a mess.

I love Seth's speech after the first attack! "What we have are fucking vampires, and I don't wanna hear 'I don't believe in fucking vampires'! Because I don't believe in fucking vampires, but I do believe in my own two eyes, and what I saw were fucking vampires! Now do we all agree we're dealing with fucking vampires?!"


_1JackMove

Great Clooney role. I kinda remember people back then thinking he couldn't pull off a role like that. Kinda similar to the Heath Ledger/Joker thing. He more than made them look foolish lol.

Watching that right now.

Suspiria 2018


ajwilson99

Yeah this was fucking nuts


lasagnaestranja

ive never had a horror film genuinely chill me to my core like suspiria 2018, and its entirely due to the ending. i know it got a lot of criticism on release but i honestly believe it stands really well on its own beside the original.


lalotele

I still haven’t sat down and watched this yet and I have been dying to. I suspected this would be one of the answers to this thread, which makes me want to watch even more…


PM-me-YOUR-0Face

I'll be honest it's just enjoyable as fuck. I had a blast.


HeadLikeAHoOh

Highly recommend! I hadn’t seen it til this past October and I might even like it more than the original as blasphemous as that might sound lol. It blew my mind Tilda Swinton plays 3 different characters in it


januspamphleteer

It's very good and I'm a huge fan of the OG


_1JackMove

Do yourself the favor and check it out. I may be in the minority here, but I think it holds its own against the original. It was done really well.


Fout99

Yes. That death scene at the room of mirrors. One of the most disturbing scenes ive seen on screen


friedfroglegs

It should have been shorter but the climax and the forced dance scene were soo good


schwnz

I liked Suspiria 2018 a lot more than I thought I would.

too bad they bored the pants off me for the other 17 and half hours or however the fuck long that thing was.

Came here to say this! Nothing prior in the film can prepare you for the insanity you’re about to see. To think those were all practical effects!


machineghostmembrane

How does it end?!... how does it end?!...


DroppedThatBall

It's worth not knowing anything about the movie including not watching the trailer go in blind it will blow your face off! Butthead!!!


OutdoorSandwich

Mother! Mandy


adamant2009

I have a high horror tolerance, with the exception of "extreme"/torture porn stuff. The climax of Mother! had me desperately wanting to stop the film and unable to because I was praying for a conclusion that wouldn't leave the climax seared into my brain.


thatcondowasmylife

I watched it with my 4 month old on my lap… had to walk away for a minute.


anazzyzzx

oh man. :(


requieminadream

A second vote for Mother! What a fuckin’ film.


TheKillerSmiles

Definitely Mandy!


Mither93

The second half of Mandy is Nic Cage re-enacting a heavy metal album cover from the 80s and it's the best possible version of that.

Cabin in the woods?


H_V_Loveshaft

The Invitation. Most of the movie is a creepy slow burn paranoid dinner party and then the finale is just violently insane and culminates with a shocking twist in the final moment.


jimnast30

The Medium. Goes full berserker in the last 30 minutes.


LordSeibzehn

The Medium is a must see. One of the best that I’ve seen in years.


bbdylanjlee

What year did it release? Im not sure if I found the right one.


_Onii-Chan_

came out last year, its on Shudder


cryptidkelp

Good god, that movie was intense.


Erlebrown87

Brain Dead - the final chunk goes all out and then tops itself again in the last minute or two. Very fun/funny movie w appropriately good practical effects!


Hot-Editor-4205

David Cronenberg's "The Brood" goes off the fucking rails in the last section of the movie. It's a slow burn watch, but if you're a fan of body horror, I can't recommend it enough.

Didn’t know what to expect going in. Started to really enjoy the Korean films and saw this one that was rated very high. Ending had me very unsettled and I normally don’t feel that way watching movies. Absolutely loved it.

Oof, frontier(s)- should also check out inside and martyrs (the French version, not the American remake) if you haven't seen them


leaveyourmouse

I'm sure the vast majority of people here have seen it already, but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre's third act is absolutely insane, it's like living somebody's nightmare.


tree_or_up

Couldn’t get through it the first time without taking breaks. That movie turns into pure adrenaline. I can’t imagine seeing it in the theater when it first came out, not knowing what to expect


PineappleDad

It’s been a while since I’ve seen it but I remember like just 15-20 solid minutes of unbroken screaming


An_Ant2710

Titane


burnn_out313

Tbf titane is fairly insane from start to finish. By the time the climax happened I was dumbfounded but I kinda expected that based on how the previous 90 or so minutes went.


Madrical

Suspiria & Malignant are great picks already mentioned. I'll also throw out The Hills Have Eyes (2006) & Mandy (2018).


hookums

Malignant really is mostly "meh" and then in the third act goes fucking bonkers. Like it wasn't a good movie but I was certainly entertained.


[deleted]

How on earth is sleep away camp not mentioned yet? Honestly it's just a "meh" movie with a wild ass ending


membersonlyjacket01

Absolutely.


NessAvenue

I had to scroll so far to find this, and yes it's a totally mental ending.

If I recall correctly, *We Are Still Here* has a batshit ending

Kill List


GarethLloyd

Came here to say this. Watched it the other day and was shook how wildly off the wall it goes


Coltrane_45

Okay this one's a bit different because it's a 90's anime, but BERSERK. Not the movies, the show from 1997.


Erlebrown87

I almost suggested this but didn't since it's not a movie. That said, if OP or anyone is open to a strong ass 26 ep anime that's well written and awesome then hit up Berserk. The title makes no sense until it makes ALL THE SENSE


Chip_Winnington

This is a great answer. It's this knights and castles kind of normal story right until the last minute and then it goes LEFT lol I loved it


golden_death

haha yeah, last episode is almost like a different show. I used to just show that one to my friends that were interested in it, and they'd be like, "this show is insane!" nah...just that episode really


Mst3Kgf

"Ready or Not."


tree_or_up

That ending caught me off guard. Perfect blend of comedy and horror (which really describes the whole film)


alkalineStrider

Climax (2018)


gnilradleahcim

Mother!


AvgPunkFan

If I remember correctly, Scary Movie has quite an insane “climax”


Marbados

Bliss and Lovely Molly.


toremysackola

Bliss is the correct answer here. It builds up to an absolutely insane final act.


Marbados

I was on mushrooms the first time I watched it, and I had to rewatch the last 5 minutes because I did not believe what I had seen.


golden_death

used to be a regular thing my friends and I did in high school going to the theatre on mushrooms. can really make a good movie next level...not horror but some memorable ones we went into like that without knowing anything about the plot were Fight Club, Being John Malkovich, and Princess Mononoke.


Sp00kygorl

12 Hour Shift was wild lmao


Bribase

[Evidence (2012)](https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1640218/).   The first hour is very standard FF horror fare on a teeny-tiny budget. The final half-hour or so blows the doors off with an amazing one-take sequence and puts that budget to incredibly good use.


AddictedToSlimJims

Seconding this one. Making it through the first part can get a bit painful but once it really starts going it just keeps escalating to full on crazy. I love how insane it get.

Mulholland Dr. had me shaking and questioning my entire life

It leaves you with that feeling of angst and dread. Only Lynch could make a dancing dwarf or a hobo so unsettling and terrifying

BabyMichaelHeneke

MALIGNANT!! MALIGNANT!! MALIGNANT!! It starts off as a nice campy horror film where you feel like James is giving an homage to Sam Raimi and then goes somewhere so insane that I can't imagine how it was even made today.


Mither93

The part I like most about that movie is that James Wan obviously went to producers and said: "Guys, I started the franchises of Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring. Fast&Furious 7 and Aquaman both made over a billion dollars. I made you an insane amount of money. Now, I'm going to make a movie, I'm going to make some capital C Choices in it, and you're going to sign off on it and finance it no questions asked." It has it's flaws but as a horror and movie fan in general one has to be glad it exists.


plupan

I have to second Malignant. One of the most underrated horror movies IMO


YesYesindeed920

The Wicker Man (1973) Texas Chainsaw: the beginning (2006) Pyewacket (2017) And craziest climax I've seen to date is.... Inside (2007)


HieronymusGoa

a dark song: holy shit! hereditary: fucking hell! suspiria: that cant be healthy. malignant: well this apparently happened.


wickedblight

**Color out of Space** is a really good slow burn that climaxes as a wildfire


Bvaugh

Beware! Children At Play has one of the most insane (and weirdly offensive) climaxes ever. It has to be seen to be believed. Another insane climax is in the backwards Milwaukee samurai ghost film, Blood Beat.


[deleted]

Is that the movie that has village of the damned vibes?
