Question Of The Week 4-14 2021

What is the most unsettling film you have ever seen?

I don’t remember the name of the film, because I watched it over 30 years ago. It was a horror film. The Twins? No, that doesn’t sound right, but regardless, one scene stays with me to this day. The children are jumping from the hayloft in an old barn, onto a thick pile of hay below. One of the kids hid a pitchfork in the hay at the bottom, prongs up. You see this just before one kid jumps.

For some reason this scene has stayed with me for all these years. As I’ve grown older, I’ve learned to avoid films which might be unsettling much as I have learned to avoid those films filled with violence for the sake of violence.

Funny thing is, I am a huge fan of true crime.

What movie unsettled you?

  1. “Split”. That movie disturbed me so deeply. Because along with the horror and the outlandish ‘creature’ portion, the director wove in elements of real life mental illness and PTSD, which would shock and disturb anyone who ever dealt with them. It was a horrible film, even if the other two in the trilogy (Unbreakable and Glass) were good.
