21. Pink Flamingos (1972)It speaks volumes about the depravity depicted throughout John Waters’ Pink Flamingos that the most memorable animal-related scene in a film about a battle for the title of Filthiest Person Alive isn’t the one where a chicken is killed during a particularly brutal sex scene.
