20 Movies People Loved, But Could Never Watch Again

There are many great movies out there that everyone should see at least once. But sometimes, just once is enough.

Whether it's a disturbing plot line, emotional rollercoaster, or surprise ending you can't unsee, here are twenty movies people said they loved but would never watch again.

The Shawshank Redemption is one of my favorite movies. It's so well-written, and the acting is terrific. But the scene when Andy gets beaten is brutal and the main reason I can't watch the movie again. It is just ferocious, and seeing that on screen was tough.

Some people say they could watch it again and again, but for me, the ending is too heartbreaking to sit down and go through all those feelings again. I'm glad I saw this movie and highly recommend it.


“Great story and acting. But still haunted by it today!”

The Shining

The flickering lights, looming danger, and impending death make these movies predictable, and for me, that takes away the excitement and anticipation to watch or re-watch.

Final Destination

If you've watched Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father, you'll understand why everyone should see it but won't watch it twice.

“Any movie with the dog as a main character. The dog dies in the end. Always. But I need to see it at least once. My Dog Skip was the first one I remember.”
