    The Deer Hunter.

    Possible spoiler ...

    I could never watch the torture/Russian Roulette scene again. Ever! Shook me to my core.

    The Elephant Man. Too heartbreaking.

    Suicide Squad just really pointless and so stupid I will be sticking
    DC Animated movies better acting better stories..

    The Revealer Formerly 'bloode'. I've relaunched!

    The Wall - I can barely stand the music after a bad experience in my youth where I was very badly inebriated and wouldn't stop listening insanely loudly and my friends thankfully took me to a hospital and saved my life. The Movie is even darker than the album IMO and any glance at it brings on terrible feelings of sadness and regret. Truthfully, I don't miss the whole mess....

    Also have a big problem with graphic rape scenes.

    The remake of Cape Fear! De Niro is excellent but damn!!!

    Normally, it would just be because of being bored by something - but at the same time, I'm not usually into stuff like "Saw", "Irreversible", "I Drink Your Blood", etc.

    My wife and I bonded over that film. It truly is heartbreaking, and I don't think I could trust anyone who wasn't deeply moved by it. We were both in tears at the end, and she says that's when she knew we were meant for each other.

    Movies where main characters end up getting captured and tortured because of their own stupidity and they have opportunities to avoid or escape but blow it because they just aren't too bright. I forget the name but there was one about these two beautiful models in touring South America and because of hyper-sluttishness betraying massive stupidity they get kidnapped. Then there was one called Wolfe Creek, I believe, where some young women in Australia get captured, one knocks the guy to the ground, doesn't make sure he's finished off, and he goes on and kills them. I end up angry and yelling at the screen because of their massive stupidity.

    My guess is the OP is looking for examples that go beyond "because it was bad"

    Hostel - A movie about people being butchered with shop tools. I was ashamed to walk out of the theater after the movie was over.

    If you like to watch animals being butchered, this is a movie for you.

    The one line in The Elephant Man that really tears my heart out is Anthony Hopkins' Dr. Treves asking his wife "Am I a good man? Or a bad man?"

    In the same way, I've never wanted to watch Sophie's Choice again. Brilliant work by some of my favorite actors, but just too emotionally devastating. I've never seen Schindler's List, although I know I should - I've just never found myself in a situation where I thought I could handle it.

    My wife saw all nine and a half hours of the 1985 Holocaust documentary Shoah in the theater in one day. Ever since I have acknowledged that she is a better person than I will ever be. 9.5 hours of eyewitness testimony of man's inhumanity to his fellow man is more than I'd be able to take.

    Technically, we're animals. Mammals. Great apes, specifically.

    Watch a half hour of Shoah, and don't bother with Schindler's List. You will get more out of 30 minutes of Shoah than you would ever get out of Schindler's List.

    Personally, I think everyone should watch Shoah, but it will take everything out of you. Easily the most powerful film I have ever seen.

    Gus Van Sant's Gerry starring Casey Affleck and Matt Damon.
    I oddly enjoyed it while watching it, but I couldn't sit through that basically walking around in the desert film again.

    This was the first one that came to mind for me. I did watch Schindler's List but I wouldn't watch it again.

    Brimstone. Technically it's a very impressive film, with great actors and excellent performances, good cinematography and an interesting chapter-based narrative structure. However, the subject matter is just too much like misery/torture porn for me to ever want to see it again.

    Scarface - I can't watch the chainsaw sequence and watching the film will remind me of that.
    Schindler's List
    Nil by Mouth - The only film directed by Gary Oldman. A stunning and brutal film. Hits too close to home.

    Tim Robbin's wife flipping on him and telling Sean Penn that he killed his daughter is the worst betrayal ever caught on film.

    I agree. Schindler's List is an event you have to be prepared for and I've never put myself up to after the one time I've seen it.
