The 50 Most Hard-To-Watch Scenes in Movie History

27. Dead Baby

Movie: Trainspotting (1996)
Director: Danny Boyle
Stars: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller

Although the behavior of the drug-addicted protagonists of Danny Boyle's Trainspotting is self-destructive, the most tragic casualty happens to be a baby. As Allison (Susan Vidler) screams for an unknown reason, Sick Boy (Jonny Lee Miller) looks down at the crib to check on his baby, Dawn. Then, the camera pans into the crib, slowly revealing a still and dead-looking infant—the consequence of neglect after too much drugs. Not every day that you see the corpse of an infant at the movies. —JR
