15 Most Disturbing And Scary Movies Ever


3. Eraserhead (1977)

This is the first feature-length movie by a filmmaker David Lynch.

The film was produced with the assistance of the American Film Institute (AFI) during the director’s time studying there.

It tells the story of Henry Spencer (Nance), who is left to care for his grossly deformed child in a desolate industrial landscape.

Throughout the film, Spencer experiences dreams or hallucinations featuring his child and the Lady in the Radiator. The finished film is impeccably consistent and thoroughly dark.

The climax of the movie is a disturbing and at the same time cathartic moment when Henry cuts open the swaddling of his deformed baby only to find exposed organs underneath and taken with this horrific sight, stabs the raw flesh.

Along with these disturbing scenes, Lynch manages to make the sound design for this film equally creepy by simply mixing everything from crying babies to hypnotic industrial sounds.

Sounds great.
