Some movies go beyond the extreme limits of taboo, at least in the eyes of certain countries, and what may be right for you, may not be right for some. Now there are thousands of movies out there both professional and amateurish, so it seems like the only way to make a film stand out is by going to the extremes in order to get the attention of a discriminating audience. Even if all critics and viewers wind up doing is moan and complain, it's still a good thing because even bad publicity is good publicity. So here are a couple of movies that didn't find themselves in the good graces of the public.

There was plenty of effed up aversion therapy on A Clockwork Orange.

Based on Anthony Burgess’ 1962 novel, Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 film almost wasn’t released by the British Board of Film Classification due to Malcolm McDowell’s aversion therapy torture scene which made them fear would lead to copy crimes in real life… and they were right! Several crimes were reported to have occurred, modeling off the film.

Kubrick ultimately pulled the release of the film in light of so much controversy.

But the UK wasn’t the only place Clockwork had an issue. In the U.S., Kubrick had to cut about 30 seconds of the film to transition from an X rating to an R. But it wasn’t until 30 years later that the film would return to British screens.

Borat may have been the most disliked comedy mockumentary ever.

Borat was surrounded by controversy and was banned in several places around the world.

Even before its release, leaders in Kazakhstan were outraged, claiming the film was the embodiment of Cohen’s political agenda. It was also banned in Arab countries, except for Lebanon, and discouraged by the Russian government from being played in Russian theaters.

The 1980's film Cannibal Holocaust made Hannibal seem like a Disney movie.

The commentary on civilized vs. uncivilized society, was largely popular due to its controversial violence. In the film, we follow an NYU professor that heads to the Amazon forest to find and rescue a missing film crew that traveled there to film cannibal tribes.
