James Franco
and director Danny Boyle's new film, '127 Hours,' has been grabbing a lot of buzz recently, but not exactly for the reasons they might have wanted: Some viewers have been so disturbed at the movie's climactic amputation scene that they have fainted from shock. But while widespread reports of physical illness at showings of '127 Hours' isn't (necessarily) the best PR for a movie, things could be a lot worse.

After all, nobody's actually died watching '127 Hours.' Yet.

That can't be said for some of the shocking films from Hollywood's past, however, which got us to thinking: What other movies have become infamous for making audiences physically ill? Franco and Boyle can take some consolation from the results, as many of these were huge box office hits and have since becomes classics of the cinema. But be warned: Read this list at your own peril.
