Seven Movies We Want to Un-See

Categories: Film and TV

3. The Sixth SenseNow I'm going to throw you for a loop. Do I wish I could go back and un-see The Sixth Sense? Absolutely. But my reasoning for wanting to un-watch this movie has nothing to do with any disdain for it. It's a great movie with one of the best twist endings of all time. But when I saw it, I knew the ending. I didn't know it for sure, but I had heard enough chatter about the ending to know to look for a twist, and I inadvertently ruined the surprise for myself. It was like Christmas 1986 all over again! If I could forget everything about this movie and rewatch it, I would. Plus, the bonus to that would be a renewed faith in M. Night Shyamalan, which is very, very gone.

2. Boys Don't CryThey screened Boys Don't Cry at my college campus and my roommate and I went not knowing all that much about the film. I know that there are more graphic rape scenes in movies, but I have never been more stunned to watch such a horrific act of violence on film. It got to me in a weird way that I really can't explain. We left the theater and neither of us could muster a word. Then we both went to bed, still in silence. I wish I could throw that memory away forever.

1. Requiem for a DreamDear government,
Want to end the war on drugs? Do you want to stop kids from turning household products into crystal meth? How about ending the funnel of money that goes into antidrug campaigns targeted at school-age children? Make it mandatory that all teenagers watch Darren Aronofsky's depiction of four drug abusers and the downward spiral they find themselves in, and I guarantee they will be scared straight. Even as I think of this film, I shudder. I would like to never think about it again...especially that arm scene.

I agree with you on requiem for a dream, not that I want to un see it but it's depiction of drug use would scare anyone straight.

Honestly, the Stephen King story from Creep Show wasn't traumatizing for me as a 4 year old. But at the same age I watched Creep Show 2 and am still haunted by "The Raft" and the blob in the water that ate the teenagers. Usually if I see a mass of seaweed or a different color on top of water I have flashbacks.

The imagery of Jordy Verrill has always stuck with me, but mostly because I couldn't remember what it was from. Now I know and I can die in peace... Moss-free.

Yeah, I usually find people more traumatized by "They're Creeping Up on You".

"The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" is just kinda depressing", except where Stephen King exclaims, "METEOR SHIT!". That's a classic line I often find myself stating at work.
