Music video director, short film creator, photographer and artist Chad Michael Ward has given Bloody-Disgusting his Top 10 Horror WTF Moments! WARNING: The list contains a bunch of spoilers, so keep that in mind. Ward has directed videos for Aiden, Derek Sherinian feat. Billy Idol and Slash, D’Amato and has done work with Marilyn Manson, Soil, Trust Company, Static-X and others. His work captures horror and grotesque scenarios in truly beautiful and arresting ways. Just check out my personal favorite, ‘The Hierophant’, to see a perfect example of this (image is NSFW).

10. RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE
It’s a Japanese zombie movie! Wait, no, it’s an epic bleak zombie movie! Wait, no, it’s a zombie siege movie! Wait no, it’s a CGI zombie sci-fi movie! Who needs story structure when you’re Paul W.S. Anderson. WTF?
Bill Murray?! WTF?
8. FUNNY GAMES
There’s nothing funny about one of the bleakest films I’ve seen in quite a while. No reason, no redemption and certainly no happy ending. Poor Naomi Watts, we hardly knew ye. WTF?
OF COURSE Adrian Brody wants to make sweet, sweet love to the girl he just genetically engineered in a lab. Well, until she pulls a “Crying Game” on him. WTF?
It’s a story about a girl. With teeth. Down there. WTF?
5. DEATH PROOF
Talking. More talking. Even more talking. Then, car tire to the face! WTF?
A 90 minute snore-fest that abruptly redeems itself in the last 2 minutes with a WTF moment that the remainder of the series has never truly been able to replicate.
3. THE MIST
Sometimes, in the end, you have to do the right thing, even if that means hurting the ones you love. Well, unless the Army just happens to show up moments later to save you. WTF?
So some jerk kidnaps you, imprisons you for 15 years then releases you for no apparent reason. You set about planning your revenge, meet a beautiful girl that you end up in bed with and finally come face to face with with your captor. Oops, did we forget to tell you that beautiful girl is actually your daughter? WTF?
What starts off as a fairly by-the-numbers tale of murder and revenge becomes something…different. What happens during the second half of the film is one of the greatest mindfucks ever committed to film in recent history. W. T. F.?
