Are there any movies that make you angry? Of course, we all have movies that make us laugh and others cry, but which films boil people’s blood? After polling the internet, here are the top-voted enrage movies.
1. The Mist (2007)
“I love The Mist, but the psychotic religious woman made me angry, probably because we've all seen people like her in real life, and they're just as destructive to people's lives in the real world,” shared one.
“To be clear, though, that is a good thing. Stephen King is good at creating stories with terrifying monsters, where realistic human villains are just as scary.”
2. Don’t Look Up (2021)
“Don't Look Up was way too similar to real life for my taste. Even worse than that, there were so many poor choices. With the actors in the movie, everyone was expecting it to be so much better,” suggested one. Another agreed, “It could have been so much better. The effects were awful.”

3. Hereditary (2018)
“For my taste, Hereditary took way too much of a religious tone at the end,” admitted one. “The end felt like a stretch, and I was hoping for something that wrapped up the whole story and did not leave us with more questions than answers. Instead, it felt like the ending was extremely forced,” a second added.
4. The Big Short (2015)
A man relays, “Not only does the movie mock the fact that no one got punished for committing the most prominent financial crime in history, causing hardship that set back a generation, but the movie also finishes with a note that the banks are still doing the same thing by a different name.
I saw no hope at the end of the movie. They rigged the game, cashed out at everyone's expense when they crashed it, set up the board, and said, “Again?”
5. Dark Waters (2019)
“This one makes you angry for different reasons. First, the story dramatizes Robert Bilott's case against the chemical manufacturing corporation DuPont after they contaminated a town with unregulated chemicals,” one explained.
“They created Teflon, and the chemical PFOA in it, made people very sick, and a lot developed cancer or created congenital disabilities in pregnant women.
“They only recently settled it – DuPont and Chemours each agreed in 2017 to pay $335.35 million in cash to resolve the thousands of claims that arose from the release of PFOA into the ground, air, and water from the Washington Works plant in Parkersburg, West Virginia.”
6. Atonement (2007)
“Atonement. They ruined the innocent, and the cruel didn’t lose a wink of sleep. And the architect of it all thought she’d absolve herself by writing a fictional book. I hate how this movie went. I was hoping for so much more,” expressed another.
7. Spotlight (2015)
“When the closing text came on the screen in Spotlight, reporting all of the cities that had reported abuse, and then the screen kept filling AGAIN and AGAIN with more cities, at least half of the people in the packed theater were audibly groaning and muttering,” one shared.
“Finally, the lights came up, and people just sulked out, shaking their heads, or just sat in their seats for a while, stewing. People were livid. Great, compelling movie, but it will ruin your day. The Big Short had a similar effect.”
8. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (2008)
“The Boy in the Pajamas makes me angry because of how manipulative it is and how lightly it takes one of the biggest tragedies ever. I don’t think it has any pretense of historical accuracy or is anything other than garbage,” one user called out.
9. Mother! (2017)
“Aranofsky’s Mother! I was outraged during and after this movie. I hated it, which is strange because I’m a massive Aranofsky fan. The movie made me feel super uncomfortable and like I was being suffocated. It was peak Covid too, so emotions were already running wild,” replied another.
10. Funny Games (2007)
“Funny Games has been described as a movie that hates you and wants to punish you for watching it, and I think that's pretty on point,” one suggested. “Funny Games” sounded just as they sounded, a mind game for everyone trying to sit through it. It's a deliberate troll movie,” a final user commented.
