    It was messed up but I expected scar me for life material or something. It was an interesting watch.

    You are so hardcore, Allison.

    I have no doubt that less experienced or adventurous viewers might feel seriously disturbed by 'A Serbian Film'. But the question is, could anything really scar people in here for life anymore? I have a hard time believing anything fictitious really would affect me that much today.

    There was one film that really distubed me... I can't remember the title. It had the word "Girl" in it. "Girl Next Door?" Ian would know.

    Yup. The Jack Ketchum adaptation.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. I think you might actually be right about that one. I have been avoiding it because I am a bit squeamish about realistic depictions of rape. That's why I actually find films like Last House on the Left, I Spit on Your Grave and Irréversible harder to watch than I did A Serbian Film (though that one was no walk in the park either ).

    I can deal with rape flicks. I don't know what it was about Girl Next Door. It seriously bothered me though.

    It's the film about Sylvia Lickens right? Never seen the film, but just read about the case at the crime library was depressing enough. I'm unable to watch movie about real maltreated children...

    I have both the movies based on the Lickens case -- THE GIRL NEXT DOOR, and AN AMERICAN CRIME. They're both quite good, and very disturbing despite not being all that graphic compared to something, say, like A SERBIAN FILM. The movies get in your head like a mold. Just the concept of the story is about as diabolical and fucked as you can conjure up, and it just drives home the horror of it when you know it's based on something that actually happened to some poor girl. In fact, what really happened to her was even worse than what they put in the adaptations.

    Another bothersome one, but definitely not at the level of Girl Next Door, was Mockingbird Don't Sing.

    PS... you have a crime library? Are you Batman or something?

    Ketchum's book is more disturbing than the film, in my opinion. Either way, they did a very good job of adapting it. The fact that it is as unsettling as it is means they did their work well.
