By the Gods!

Pierre Brice is about to be lunch in THE COSSACKS (1960)

The movie itself is a fairly standard period drama made with an entire cast and crew of PEPLUM regulars including Edmund Purdom and John Drew Barrymore.  This scene, is one of the most disturbing ones ever filmed. You watch the movie and everything is fine and good and then this scene, which happens 3/4 into it, comes out of nowhere and bam! It's truly unexpected. I won't describe what happens but it's not fun (if what I think happened happened during the filming of it...).

This is a screengrab of a HD copy I recently got from a great source. The image is nice (as you can see). Still...that scene.
