15 Movies That Will Mess With Your Mind

There are some movies out there that just keep you thinking for hours, even days afterwards. Whether it's for a good feel good reason, perhaps you're trying to figure out the ending or maybe just maybe, the movie has messed with your head a bit. You don't know what to think, you can't tell whether or not you even liked the movie because all you can think is...what did I just watch?!

The Shining
Now I am a horror fan, and I do love this movie but it definitely took a few watches to really understand and get the movie. It's not particularly a scary movie, not as in jump scares but there is this one scene that messed with my head for ages afterwards. It creeped me out so much, I couldn't sleep for days!

Remember Me
You wouldn't expect a Robert Pattinson film to be on here would you? It's not a typical happy romantic comedy though, it's more of a unhappy drama if I'm honest. It is a good movie though, and I'd still watch it again. But one scene in particular was just really sad and shocking, and realistic. I cried for a good while after watching. (If you've watched it, I guarantee you know the scene).

Deep Impact
I watched this when I was little, and I was ok. I coped with it, I just thought it was crazy and unrealistic. Then I grew up. I can no longer watch End Of The World type movies without crying. It scares me, it makes me panic. I can't. I just can't. The scene with Tea Leoni, just gets me. It's terrifying. 

All Good Things
I love Ryan Gosling, and Kirsten Dunst so I thought I'd love this movie! I did like it, I think. But its definitely 100% not a romantic comedy. Not even close. It's quite hard to watch in places.

Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World
I really enjoyed this movie as I was watching it. Steve Carell & Keira Knightley work really well together actually! It's seem like an inspirational, motivational 'get your life together before it's too late' type movie. But it's not. It's just not. I cried myself to sleep the night I watched it, I cried when I remembered about the movie while writing this and will never ever watch it  again.

The Mist
Another movie based on a Stephen King novel, but I didn't love this one so much. If you love monster movies, I recommend you give this one a go. But that one scene, when they're in the car...when he..you know. Just shocked me to my very core. I was just so shocked I couldn't even cry. If you're a parent, well, maybe don't watch it.

A Beautiful Mind
A Beautiful Mind really made me think in a completely different way and have a better understanding of mental health. Amazing acting. @  Family Travel With Ellie

We Need To Talk About Kevin
I thought about that film for quite some time. @ Mummy And Moose  

Shutter Island
Originally, on my very first watch, I'd say Shutter Island, The Others, Stonehearst Asylum and Secret Window because unlike a lot of movies these actually did catch me off guard with the twists in the story lines and I was like 'whaaaat?!'  @ Underland To Wonderland

Hard Candy
Hard Candy was very disturbing, but again well worth seeing just once, as it's an interesting film that tackles a dark subject in itself, but ooh it was tough to get through! @ The Happy Larkspur

Nightmare On Elm Street
Nightmare on Elm Street freaked me out for years and I normally like horror films but not this one. @ Over 40 & A Mum To One

Melancholia 
A very odd watch - ostensibly quite boring in places and not enjoyable to watch but also strangely compelling. A bit like not being able to look away from a car crash. One of those
films that makes the texture if everything feel ickey for a few days. @ Someone's Mum

American Sniper
A little too close to home for me. Especially the scenes when he is watching a blank television or watching his kids party and having a moment with the dog. This film is when I first thought I may have PTSD from my tour.  @ Daddy Stinks

Interstellar
We've recently watched Interstellar and I can't stop thinking about it! I don't want to give anything away if you haven't seen it but space, time scales/zones e.g. Three hours on one planet is 23 on Earth and families being affected by it... too much for me. I'm not good with sad but good for mankind endings. @ Emma Reed

IT
Was never able to look at a paper boat since, let alone a clown! And now they go and announce the re-make ... And you know I'll have to watch it! @ The Hart Of The Munchkin Patch
Did any of these films mess with your head? Or perhaps another movie did?
