We’re entering a new age here at CHUD, with a refreshed stable of writers, a re-energized concentration of efforts, and a focus on consistent, knowledge-backed fun. To ring in this new era for the site we wanted to bring you a truly special, truly memorable, truly incredible list that characterizes what CHUD is about, and we think we’ve cooked up just the thing.

BODILY FUNCTION JUNCTION
The 25 Grossest, Most Execrable Moments in Film.


We’re here to explore the most depraved, flinch-worthy, vomit-inducing (or vomit-involving) moments ever put to film. We’re not interested in simple gore and viscera here… We’re looking for the shittiest, pusiest, cummiest, pukeiest, piss-filled scenes in the history of motion-pictures. Some will be huge, some will be small, but they’ll all be gross. We’ve also put an unprecedented amount of effort into pre-planning, scheduling, and dividing the effort for this list, so expect it to hit you every one of the next 25 weekdays (with a number of special surprises planned for the weekends!).

So without further ado, grab your nearest complimentary airsick bag (or maybe just a whole trashcan) and jump into CHUD’s newest list.

THE MOVIE?

Salò -or- 120 Days of Sodom (1975)

“Nothing’s worse than a breath without odor!”


Salò is one of the most controversial, disgusting, and depraved films of all time. It is a punishing experience that wasn’t even finished when the director, Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered in a strange, still unexplained incident that may or may not have involved stolen reels from this very film. Widely banned, Salo has been extremely difficult to see for much of its history, with even early Criterion publications coming under legal fire (resulting in the “rarest DVD ever printed” moniker being applied to the first Criterion pressing). It’s out there now, in a beautifully restored and special feature-packed pressing. The inclusion of Salo on this list is a not only a no-brainer, but it’s also absolutely required, for reasons you’ll soon find out.

A loose metaphor for Mussolini’s reign, and hyper-leftist rule in general, Salo tells the story of 18 teenagers that are collected and housed in a mansion by 4 regionally powerful men (a Duke, a Bishop, a Magistrate, and a President) and submitted to four months of hideous torture- sexual, mental, and physical. Loosely based on Marquis De Sade’s 1785 novel, it attempts to show us to the depths of human depravity. It does a damn good job.

THE GROSS?



Watching Salò is one of the most punishing cinematic experiences you could submit yourself to, and in a film of such unmatched depravity, there is a scene that stands out- the literally-named shit feast.

WHO DOES IT COMES OUT OF?



Around a dozen-and-a-half poorly fed teenage holes. I don’t mean holes as a super-detailed scatological reference, I mean these characters exist in a movie the purpose of which is to literally reduce them to sub-human objects that exist at a level just north of a wet cavity in the ground. They are forced to shit in huge vats to collect the shit, and are punished if they use their own chamber pots. One such inspection results in this moment, and this line…


“You even had the impudence to wipe it!”


WHERE DOES IT GO?

In this fine group of folks…



…which consists of the delighted captors and a selection of the captive young people. Jokes are made, force-feeding occurs.



(FUN FACT: Apparently the production created an edible shit substance made of
chocolate and marmalade, which was fed to some visiting reporters as sandwiches.)


ANY CASUALTIES?


Not in this scene, but bad things happen all-throughout the film, and they often leave someone less than alive. Here it is only your appetite that’s being murdered.

HOW GROSS IS IT:




Exceedingly. Gag-inducingly.

Chunks of shit stuck in teeth. Brown-smeared mouths. The disgusting moistness of the meal. This is among the grossest sequence ever filmed, and it’s not a short one.
