Its based off of a book though and not a horror film.
Usually films will say in their ratings if there's a rape scene in it which then gives you the option of going to see it or not. And while it may make us squirm and feel incredibly uncomfortable, I have no problem with it so long as no one was really hurt and it has a point within the storyline. Shock films are meant to do exactly that.
The Human Centipede, The Hills Have Eyes (remake. Which was crappy honestly), Hostel series, Saw series. I mean all these things have gratuitous violence/shock. Although Saw may be in a category of its own because the overarching storyline of the entire series is actually interesting.
edit: Oh yeah, and Oldboy. Wanna be shocked. Watch Oldboy. Koreans are crazy man. But its probably one of the best movies I've ever seen. With a twist!
My friend keeps telling me to check that out, and it's been in my Netflix queue for awhile. I need to get on that.
