Movies - Part II
Here is another list of all the movies that I feel are
very graphic and disturbing in their own way. These movies are very suspenseful and original for this type of genre.
All of the movies listed below are once again my own personal favourites, that have some sort of realism to them. I strongly
suggest you go out and see these movies if you have not already.
