There are a couple of scenes in horror movies I fast-forwarded through because I wanted to finish the film but simply could not watch any more of that scene - one is MARTYRS, a film I don't particularly care for. The scene in question is when the men are beating the shit out of the girl. It just goes on and on and I thought, why am I watching this? Not necessarily the most disturbing scene but something that just felt yuk.
The other scene is the amputation scene in THE RUINS. Holy shit. I watched the film again recently (it's really underrated) and once again I couldn't get through that scene. It amazingly horrifying.
I think for outright disturbing in a way that deeply upset me I would pick the fraternal rape in SNOWTOWN. I turned the film off.

I've seen far too many horror movies to pick just one scene, but several that happen to come to mind are:
- The village burning in Cannibal Holocaust.
- The dismemberment of the river turtle in Cannibal Holocaust.
- The photographs in Martyrs.
- The entire rape/murder sequence in The Hills Have Eyes remake.
- The stupid ending of Eden Lake.
- The dead twins in The Shining.

The litany of disturbing shit in this thread is why I'll sometimes classify myself as more of a "monster movie" fan then a straight-up horror fan. I typically like my gore one step removed from reality at the very least. With few exceptions, movies with realistic depictions of rape and torture are just too much for me.

^ Me too. The realistic stuff isn't fun to me and I like to have fun when watching horror. I call that realistic stuff "surgical horror." I don't want to see it. I want to see over the top, audacious stuff like decapitations, head explosions, and whatnot. Like the opening scene of WRONG TURN 3 (?? I forget which installment) where someone gets cut in half vertically. It's absurd and funny and horrifying.
That said, I do appreciate a grueling experience that has a pay off, like the original I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE. And the pay off can be in terms of artistry, not necessarily revenge. Something like SNOWTOWN though - there's nothing, whether revenge or artistry or something else, that could make me watch that film. I don't want that stuff in my brain.

When I watch a horror film I want to feel engaged in the dramatic unfolding of the film, and if the awful dark stuff helps make that happen to me, great.... to a point.

People like to take potshots at The Blair Witch Project, but that scene in the house at the end actually made my flesh crawl.
Sinister was not a good movie by any means, but those home movies pretty fucked up.

I've tried to think of some other horror scenes that really disturbed me, but there are just so few that stuck with me after the film ended or that weren't diluted in their effect by subsequent viewings. Ultimately, a lot of what I see in horror only disturbs me in the moment. Such scenes tend to be viscerally disturbing, but not emotionally disturbing. It's usually the scenes that disturb me emotionally that continue to affect me after the film is over and it's those which I would classify as "the most disturbing." Thankfully, I rarely encounters those kinds of scenes in horror. Actually, when I think of the scenes that disturbed me the most over the last year I can't recall any of them being in horror.

Poltergeist 1982
Tangina: There's one more thing. A terrible presence is in there with her. So much rage, so much betrayal, I've never sensed anything like it. I don't know what hovers over this house, but it was strong enough to punch a hole into this world and take your daughter away from you. It keeps Carol Anne very close to it and away from the spectral light. It *lies* to her, it tells her things only a child could understand. It has been using her to restrain the others. To her, it simply *is* another child. To us, it is the Beast.

^The last several minutes of Salo, the binoculars sequence, disturbed the hell out of me.

3G reminded me I need to check out the Ruins.
Personally the most disturbing horror scenes for me are head trip ones that don't necessarily come from horror movies, but evoke more of an existential dread. The shit that has fucked me up most wasn't gory, but there are still some disturbingly graphic and gory sequences out there.
If you like Lovecraft, check out Dagon, which was direct to DVD iirc, released back when they still had movie rental stores. I think it was directed by the guy who made the classic Re-Animator in the 80s. There is a very nasty bit in Dagon you won't soon forget.
But there's also some disturbing stuff in Irreversible, the notorious rape scene for one. Probably not that graphic, but it was still quite heavy. IDK but I can't really think of many gory scenes. The sacrifice sequence in Apocalypto is quite grim. And Bone Tomahawk is a more recent flick with some super nasty stuff in it.

Yes, this is what I mean. The ending to Ex Machina was pretty disturbing to me. Not the stabbing part either, which was surreal on its own, but the twist near the end and the sealing of a main character's fate. It wasn't even altogether unpredictable or anything. We had to know the whole time that it was a grim possibility, even a probability, but the way they executed it was chilling.
It's not a horror movie either, just more of a sci-fi thriller mystery. But it's a highly emotionally manipulative movie, which I could easily understand why some people hated. I think the ending was generally fitting though, not unearned. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes lol.

You mean when they found their missing friend facing the corner? Quite disturbing and memorably classic. I don't take any potshots at TBWP. Is it not still pretty much the best found-footage film, and the rest were all just followers with a lot more money.
That whole found footage fad lost my interest before it blew up as a trend with the Paranormal Activity series. I just don't get it. I did like Sinister and Insidious though. Those freaked me out, mainly cuz they've mastered the silence punctuated by startling noise and demonic figure emergence. It's so very cheap, and yet so very effective. People who claim to be immune to this are liars! You can startle anyone with lightning. No one is immune.
But as MPUSA was saying, those aren't scares don't last. They startle more than they disturb. Disturbing scares endure.
Speaking of witches, last year's The Witch had a pretty disturbing end to it. Fantastic movie.

The repeated appearance of real life photographs of Holocaust atrocities in The Addiction was far too much for me.

Haven't thought about his movie in a long time, it is quite underrated I feel. You're correct that Stuart Gordon, the guy who did Re-Animator and From Beyond, directed this one too. He even cast a guy in the lead who was a spitting image of a young Jeffrey Combs. Funny story, I was dating a girl in high school who was really into horror movies so we rented it one night. Turns out though that she had an intense fear of fish (ichthyophobia) that she had never disclosed to me. We had to turn it off partway through once the true nature of the townspeople became apparent.

^ lol Yeah I could see why that flick didn't go over so well for date night. And you better not let her see the manga "Gyo." It's got an army of freakish fish. Fabulous graphic novel though, highly recommended to horror fans.

Eraserhead
Not just one scene, but the entire film.
So surreal, so bizarre.
Unlike anything Iíve ever seen.
Very few films are so unnerving.

Yeah, I'll never re-watch The Vanishing. I saw Clockwork Orange in the 70's, and I'm not yet ready to watch it again. I watched a couple of episodes of Criminal Minds, and it became clear to me that I don't want to know what evil people are thinking. I don't need that stuff rattling around in my head. I now apply that as a standard for things.
I haven't watched most of the movies mentioned here.
I thought Blair Witch Project was funny and dumb. I chuckled a few times, but mostly thought it was super slow and boring. I literally don't remember anything scary. Did I see the same movie you did? I read The Shining before I saw it as a movie. The book I remember mostly for the caretaker "Honk, peek" deal. The movie and the two girls, not so scary. Maybe I did a poor job on the 'willing suspension of disbelief.'
Actual disturbing stuff, yes I've seen quite a few things. Examples. The Armenian genocide in Ararat. Things in Night Porter. The chocolate bath in Sweet Movie. <------- technically not a horror scene.

Well, many of these aren't horror movies, so if we're talking about movies that fucked with us, I've got to mention No Country for Old Men. I saw it once. Once was enough.

A character is shot in I'll Never Die Alone and the camera shows us the very realistic, very disturbing results. For me this was far more effective than the notorious rape scene earlier in the film.
