The most horrifying or disturbing book you've ever read?

But i want to read a book that's beyond stephen king's level of horror. I want it to be really disturbing and sick. I want it to shock me.

Naked Lunch by William S. Borroughs is pretty fucked. Open the book to literally any page at random and you'll immediately see what I mean lmao.
This. If you want something disturbing, than this is your fucking book right here. Naked Lunch is seriously messed up.
Naked Lunch - Television Tropes & Idioms
Also, all the Demonata books after the third one are so horribly written and stupid as to make me sick to my stomach. The whole series is very gory and is supposed to be horror, but only the first 3 books are any good.
The first two are awesome, both showing a kid discovering the horrible and gruesome worlds of the demons, people being tortured, and a real feeling of lives on the line and believeble fear. I would even go so far as to submit them to your list of disturbing horror. The third was okay, but not as good.
Warning: Bad literature inspired rant
Four and on, don't fucking bother. They are the shittiest shit imaginable. The author falls in love with a dumbass blubbering useless waste of space charachter, turns everyone else into that guy's fawning fanboys and fangirls, removes the demons' teeth, and goes back one his "anyone can die" premise at the beginning (one guy "dies" like 5 times, only for us to discover he was okay after all each time). He systematically destroys everything that was good about the first books and just writes shit. He stopps doing research and writes wildly stupid fight scenes, completely abandons any sense of realisim in ANY of the charachters, and has the mother fucking plot make no sense. I'm going to make the chick whose magic power is her photographic memory forget the important plot point, because if she didn't forget, she'd do something useful, and if she did something useful, then some people might think she's better at something than the main charachter I have a crush on.
HOW THE FUCK does a mary sue this bad get published? How the fuck does a mary sue this bad even exist?
And I read all the way to book 11 hoping they'd get good again.
