    3. Thankskilling (2007)

    An angry-looking fake turkey
    Gravitas Ventures

    "It’s about a radioactive turkey that kills college students. My favorite part was when the turkey (a regular-sized, regular-looking turkey) killed the sheriff, cut his face off, and wore it over his own turkey face. Then, the sheriff’s daughter came home and had, like, a six-minute interaction with the one and a half foot tall turkey, wearing her father's sliced-off face, without realizing something was off."

    6. The House That Jack Built (2018)

    "That's just a hard one to watch, really. It's about some murderer talking about people he's killed. It's covered in philosophy, and there's a realism to his killings. It makes me feel uneasy because it's so grotesque and off from other movies I've seen. It's almost as if these are real people being killed — or maybe that's just the beauty of the acting. Whatever it is, it pulls no punches. I knew I'd probably only watch it that one time, but the scenes are still glued to my brain."

    "The Japanese horror movie. I guess there was a haunted house? I still have no idea what the fuck was happening. A guy got buried under a pile of bananas in his car, and there was a dancing skeleton."

    11. Abducted in Plain Sight (2017)

    A man with children
    Top Knot Films

    "It’s a documentary about a Mormon family who was manipulated by their neighbor — who was a child molester — into allowing one of their children to have a relationship with the man, all while both parents were also having a relationship with him. Literally one of the most fucked movies I have ever watched."

    "This movie is the closest thing I've found to describing the indifference of growing up poor in the rural South. There's a certain McCarthian mundaness with spurts of cruelty that I feel isn't as commonly seen in more populous regions of America."
