5 Movies That'll Make You Stay Out of Hospitals Forever

5 Movies That'll Make You Stay Out of Hospitals Forever

updated

Most people cringe at the idea of hospitals, but some experiences are clearly worse than others. To put the fear of God into anyone who might be hospital-bound, we rounded up a list of some of the most gruesome and vomit-inducing hospital scenes ever filmed.

Saw III

Saw III

If there’s any movie that will make you avoid hospitals like the plague, it’s Saw III. Everyone, no matter how strong-stomached, felt uneasy watching Jigsaw get open brain surgery with crude construction equipment. The sound effects used for the sawing open of the skull and the draining of the blood made the scene so over-the-top gruesome that I didn’t even want to take Advil for a week, let alone visit an actual hospital. Throw in some more scenes of Jigsaw coughing up blood, having seizures, and of course having his throat sawed in half by a circular saw and you’ve got enough gore to make people try and rationalize “just living with a gunshot wound” in order to avoid going to the hospital.

Kill Bill

Kill Bill

If you know someone who’s going to be going under the knife sometime soon, don’t watch Kill Bill until after everything goes, okay? In one scene, the main character goes in for surgery and ends up in a coma. While she is there, the doctors responsible for her care sell her unconscious body to random people to have sex with. That is, until she one day wakes up and attacks one man, killing him with hospital knives and crawls out the room in a bloody mess. The thought of unscrupulous men nailing your unconscious loved ones should be enough to make you consider performing the surgery yourself.

The Dentist

The Dentist

Nobody likes going to the dentist, but you should be especially alarmed if your dentist is anything like Dr. Feinstone! Stabbing your children in the gums, choking and molesting your gassed-up women, ripping perfectly healthy teeth out to loud opera music and more; this dentist is not one to be trusted! If you’ve got a cavity or just a routine check up, this is the sort of movie that’ll make you consider grabbing your old man’s pliers and manning it out yourself!

Hostel

Hostel

While Hostel isn't filmed in a hospital per se, many of the atrocities carried out against wayward tourists are performed with standard hospital equipment. How would you like to wake up chained to a wall staring down a women hell-bent on separating you from your family jewels? How about having your eyeball ripped out of its socket while you are fully awake and conscious of what's around you? Clearly, the life-saving tools we all depend on can become lethal weapons of death when they fall into the wrong hands!

Hard Candy

Hard Candy

In this gut wrenching film, a child predator convinces a seemingly naive and innocent teenage girl to go back to his house with him. He's in for a rude awakening, however, when she knocks him unconscious and straps him to a table in his basement! When he finally awakes, he sees that his molestation target has turned his basement into a makeshift hospital with the goal of castrating him by hand! Consumed by terror, he looks down to find a bag of ice positioned on his lower extremities and spends the next agonizing 15 minutes begging and pleading for mercy. But his cries are to no avail, and using hospital-issue scalpels and jars, this brave girl strikes a blow for child molestation victims everywhere. Still, even the most stable of souls had a hard time keeping their eyes on the screen as the deed was done.

If scenes like this aren't enough to make you queasy at the sight of drills or knives, we don't know what will!
