Antichrist and the Ten Most Brutalized Wangs in Movie History

Though Lars von Trier's Antichrist only arrives in American theaters this week, the film's already been infamous for months, owing partially to a scene in which (spoiler alert!) acts of near-unwatchable savagery are committed on Willem Dafoe's genitals (by Charlotte Gainsbourg, who later treats her own sex organs with similar discourtesy). To hear the booing audience at the film's Cannes premiere, though, you'd think they'd never before seen a vividly depicted on-screen castration — of which movie history is richly full! Herewith, Vulture's (NOT SAFE FOR WORK) photo slideshow of the Ten Most Brutalized Wangs in Cinema. (Not for the squeamish, obviously!)
