Added DiffLines:

Pretty much the entire movie counts as this, with a large dosage of NightmareFuel, on a count of it being a slow and painful exploration of a day in the life of a man stricken with post-traumatic stress disorder. However, some notable moments include:

----
* The scenes of Joe casually contemplating suicide through harmful gestures such as sticking a knife in his mouth, dropping it on the floor and barely dodging it before the blade can cut his foot, and him suffocating himself with a plastic bag. Also counts as [[NightmareFuel Nightmare]] and ParanoiaFuel.
* Joe's flashbacks including his time in the military, where he watched an innocent child get shot [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished just as soon as he offers him a candy bar]], his time in the FBI, where he discovers an entire cargo crate full of ''dead teenage girls'', and the abuse he received at the hands of [[AbusiveDad his father]]. Definite NightmareFuel as well.
