12 Most Dark And Twisted Movie Scenes Of 2017

11. A Cure For Wellness – Impromptu Dental Surgery

20th Century Fox

Unless you’re Bill Murray in Little Shop of Horrors, chances are you’re not that fond of the dentist, and if you happened to see Gore Verbinski’s psychological horror A Cure for Wellness in 2017, it’s likely you’re even less enthusiastic about your next check-up.

Though the horror wasn’t a big hit with everyone, it did feature one excruciating scene that had even its most vocal detractors squirming in horror. Young Lockhart (Dane DeHaan) has been sent to a creepy and rather unorthodox Alpine spa to search for his missing boss and finds himself subjected to some impromptu dental surgery by the facility’s sinister staff when he’s restrained in a dentist’s chair and has a drill forced through his front tooth sans anaesthetic.

The feeling of inescapability, the mechanical whir of the drill, the sight of the masked maniac (or dentist as they’re also known) looming over his victim’s mouth – it’s too familiar a scene not to be terrifying.
