As Halloween approaches, many fans of horror films are digging around to find the most frightening hits and hidden gems in the genre to enjoy. However, some verge into such dark territories that they receive NC-17 ratings or are even banned in certain counties.
One of these kinds of movies, A Serbian Film, is currently the hottest topic on the /r/horror subreddit. User MisterKenpachi described it as the “the most mentally fucked up movie I probably have ever watched, surpassing Human Centipede and the I Spit on your Grave series” in a post and it sparked discussion on the highly controversial film.

Many horror fans said that the movie was so atrocious that it lacked any sort of artistic merit.

Did anyone find it worth the watch? As one Redditor put it:
For anyone not scared away by the internet’s general synopsis of the film being too horrific to even be worth watching, A Serbian Film is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
