Of Thesilenceofthelambs‘ Hannibal Lecter’s bloodcurdling sucking sounds to Dr. Josef Heiter’s warped creature creation in The human centipede, controversy is certainly a given in the realm of cinematic horror. And given that a plethora of movies in the mammoth horror genre are gore-fest flicks layered with unfathomable footage, it’s no surprise moviegoers select them deliberately – which includes the 2010s. A Serbian film.

Since its release over a decade ago, Srđan Spasojević’s feature debut has been dubbed an excessive and unnecessary “torture porn” movie that seemingly tarnished the appeal of the horror genre for many years. As a result, these similar sentiments are voiced by user u/LiquidPenChamber1019 on the r/horror subreddit. In their initial post, LiquidPenChamber1019 claimed the film pushed them “beyond” their general comfort level and found the entire film to be “sickening” for its face value.

Unsurprisingly, a slew of Reddit users quickly sided with the OP and criticized the horror movie’s general unease throughout – with one user vowing never to watch the movie again.

Another user regretted watching the film and insisted he felt “bad” inside afterwards.

Another user skipped a deep analysis of the movie and openly called it out for what it really is: disturbing.

While most threads on Reddit are usually split down the middle when it comes to reactions, the consensus of A Serbian film is collectively saturated with a sense of unease. Luckily for horror fans, a sequel was never made – and hopefully never will be.
