Random Most Horrifying Non-Horror Movies Ever Made

    Whiplash

    Whiplash

    [ranking: 14]
    There is a difference between being a tough teacher and harassment. Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) is an instructor at a prestigious music school who wants his students to be the best, and will stop at nothing to push them to what he believes is their full potential. In the case Andrew, a talented young drummer as played by Miles Teller, "stopping at nothing" means playing until his hands bleed. 
    Damien Chazelle's Whiplash is hard to watch at times. Fletcher uses his position of authority to torture his students in the guise of achievement. Nothing less than perfection is acceptable, but perfection is impossible for a dictator like Fletcher.

    127 Hours

    127 Hours

    [ranking: 11]
    127 Hours is especially terrifying because it actually happened. Hiker Aron Ralston gets his arm stuck in a boulder, and, in an act of both desperation and survival, cuts off his arm with a pocket knife in order to break free.
    Reports came in from around that world of audience members vomiting, passing out, and having seizures in the theaters during the particularly graphic self-surgery scene. Wrap contributor John Foote wrote of the amputation scene, "I cannot remember a reaction to a film like this in a very long time, perhaps not since The Exorcist sent audiences scurrying for the doors."

    Zero Day

    Zero Day

    [ranking: 2]
    Of all the films made surrounding mass school shootings, Benjamin Coccio's 2003 faux-documentary Zero Day may be the most disturbing. In Zero Day, two students make a year-long plan to shoot up their high school, but even though audiences are being told what is going to happen, it somehow doesn't seem like the boys will actually go through with it in the end. 
    However, when the reprieve does not come, the boy's pointless killing spree is terrifying. Knowing that this kind of horror actually happens in real life only makes Zero Day more dizzying to watch.

    American History X

    [ranking: 8]

    Requiem For A Dream

    Requiem For A Dream

    [ranking: 6]
    Perhaps no film captures what it means to be a hardcore drug addict better than Darren Aronofsky??s sophomore indie, Requiem for a Dream. The director??s hip montage editing style brings audiences into the world of heroin and speed addiction. Aronofsky pulls no punches, showing audiences rock bottom ?C the point of absolutely no return for four addicts who would otherwise probably be decent human beings.
    Requiem for a Dream is beyond disturbing. It can make you run out of the room crying, begging for the images to leave your head ?C but they won't... not anytime soon anyway.

No doubt, any great horror film will make the spectator scream in terror, white-knuckle their armrest, and feel like they’re having a heart attack. However, there are a slew of horrifying films that aren't in the horror genre. These movies that traumatize don’t need to rely on gimmicks like an invincible slasher or a haunted house that terrorizes its inhabitants. For these 14 scary non-horror movies, there is no monster hiding underneath the bed, and the boogeyman is real.

What makes several of the films on this list especially terrifying is that they actually happened in real life. Is there any greater horror than the events depicted in Schindler’s List? Would a genre horror film like Halloween make one question humanity like 12 Years a Slave?

These movies force the spectator to examine issues of race, psychological torment, and the depths of the human spirit. They delve into the deepest pits of the soul and force us to question our own morality. Most of these movies are not for sleepy Sunday afternoons, and most are too disturbing to watch more than once, but certainly important enough to screen when the time is right.

Make your voice heard; vote up the scariest films that aren't horror movies.
