3.Thankskilling (2007)

An angry-looking fake turkey

"It’s about a radioactive turkey that kills college students. My favorite part was when the turkey (a regular-sized, regular-looking turkey) killed the sheriff, cut his face off, and wore it over his own turkey face. Then, the sheriff’s daughter came home and had, like, a six-minute interaction with the one and a half foot tall turkey, wearing her father's sliced-off face, without realizing something was off."

"Not many films you see have Daniel Radcliffe's corpse being used as a jet ski in the first five minutes."

5.The Holy Mountain (1973)

A witch and two women wearing white

"One of my tattoo artists put this on at his station while working on my right sleeve years ago. I do not remember noticing any pain during that session; my brain was too busy doing other shit."

6.The House That Jack Built (2018)

A man smiling with blood on his face

"That's just a hard one to watch, really. It's about some murderer talking about people he's killed. It's covered in philosophy, and there's a realism to his killings. It makes me feel uneasy because it's so grotesque and off from other movies I've seen. It's almost as if these are real people being killed — or maybe that's just the beauty of the acting. Whatever it is, it pulls no punches. I knew I'd probably only watch it that one time, but the scenes are still glued to my brain."

"When Peter Jackson got to direct The Lord of the Rings, you can’t imagine how excited weirdos who love this movie were."

9.House (1977)

A girl&#39;s head superimposed on a crowd of cartoon faces

"The Japanese horror movie. I guess there was a haunted house? I still have no idea what the fuck was happening. A guy got buried under a pile of bananas in his car, and there was a dancing skeleton."

10.Happiness (1998)

A couple sitting on a couch

11.Abducted in Plain Sight (2017)

A man with children

"It’s a documentary about a Mormon family who was manipulated by their neighbor — who was a child molester — into allowing one of their children to have a relationship with the man, all while both parents were also having a relationship with him. Literally one of the most fucked movies I have ever watched."

Here's a glimpse of the WTF-ness:

12.Gummo (1997)

A kid&#39;s profile

"This movie is the closest thing I've found to describing the indifference of growing up poor in the rural South. There's a certain McCarthian mundaness with spurts of cruelty that I feel isn't as commonly seen in more populous regions of America."

15.Audition (1999)

A man looking upset

16.Antichrist (2009)

A ghost on a bridge

"My husband and I watched it years ago. We both fell asleep at different times while we were watching it, so he saw parts that I didn’t and vice versa. We haven’t gone back to watch from beginning to end."
