The Greatest Movies We Never Want to See Again: 'Funny Games'

EDIT
|

Michael Haneke remade his own film 10 years later with 2007's 'Funny Games,' starring Naomi Watts and Tim Roth as a couple vacationing at their family's lake house when a pair of well-dressed, preppy young men stop by to borrow some eggs, but end up taking the family hostage instead. 'Funny Games' is a cynical film with shocking, unrelenting violence -- where most films aim to shock with gore and guts, this film is more concerned with twisting the knife slowly and mercilessly, while Haneke seems to be scolding his own audience for wanting to see more. That meta aspect is solidified in one of the film's most iconic scenes, when a character abruptly breaks the fourth wall and makes the audience a participant in the horror.
