Top 10 Best Torture Movies of All Time

No one knows exactly why but humans tend to find some sort of satisfaction in watching other humans being tortured to death. This is the reason why torture movies turn out to be so successful. There is a theory that by looking at other people in pain, a human who is not in pain would like to think to himself that “my life is better off than this”. This thought gives them a certain degree of satisfaction.

Below is a list of the best torture movies of all time.
