Random Most Horrifying Non-Horror Movies Ever Made

    Seven

    Seven

    [ranking: 1]
    After you've seen Seven, the opening of a box will forever be no simple task. David Fincher's 1995 stylish neo-noir tells the sordid tale of a serial killer who bases his victims off of the seven deadly sins.
    Fincher creates a hellish unnamed city in which it it never stops raining, and the streets always seem dirty and dank. Each crime scene is carefully crafted to take the spectator inside the psychotic mind of the aptly named John Doe. The film's twist ending still packs a walloping punch, no matter how many times you've screamed in mock horror, "What's in the box?"

    12 Years A Slave

    12 Years A Slave

    [ranking: 10]
    12 Years a Slave tells the story of a black man who is born free in New York but is kidnapped and forced into slavery for over a decade. Director Steve McQueen depicts the protagonist's struggle with an unapologetic eye. This is a true story adapted from Solomon Northup's memoir, and McQueen made sure that he told Solomon's story, no matter how hard it is to watch.
    One scene in particular is especially excruciating, a sequence in which Solomon is forced to whip his own friend. It's simply heartbreaking to watch, as it pulls at every ounce of human emotion that exists within a person. How many scary monsters can do that?

    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.

    Schindler's List

    [ranking: 4]

    Irr??versible

    Irr??versible

    [ranking: 7]
    Irr??versible was specifically designed to make audiences panic. Gaspar No??'s 2002 graphic revenge drama literally made viewers sick. The director used a 27 hertz bass frequency during the first 30 minutes of the movie, a frequency that cannot be heard by the human ear, but has the ability to induce panic, anxiety, extreme sorrow, and heart palpitations.
    Several audience members reportedly left the theater during the film's opening scenes because they felt sick and disoriented. And the film already features a beyond-disturbing, nine-minute rape scene that is nauseating enough without the low-frequency bass designed to induce panic.  
    Film critic Roger Ebert described the feature as, "a movie so violent and cruel that most people will find it unwatchable."

    Buried

    Buried

    [ranking: 3]
    Buried tells the story of Paul Conroy, a US contractor working in Iraq who is kidnapped and buried alive. With nothing to save him other than a lighter and a cell phone, Buried is a horrifying movie that make its audience feel as though they are choking for air alongside the protagonist.
    If a spectator was not claustrophobic heading into the cinema, they definitely were after watching Paul struggle helplessly in his confined space for an hour and a half.

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.
