We're big fans of Rob Zombie's horror and exploitation films, and House of 1000 Corpses is OTT and ultra disturbing - bringing us the cult characters of Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie) and Otis (Bill Moseley).

Lars Von Trier's intriguing, beautiful and repulsive horror film about He (Willem Dafoe), She (Charlotte Gainsbourg) and the grief of losing a child has its truly disturbing moments - genital mutilation being amongst some of its most graphic imagery. The film's not really that scary to be honest, just high on shock value, and we … Continue reading 31 scary movie moments – 4) The fox in Antichrist (2009)
