    I have just got back from cinema with my friends we saw Wrng Turn and it must be the goriest film I have ever seen.
    I did not think the storyline was great had it of been then this would have been a greta film.
    I will not spoil the film and tell you what happens but if you want a film to make you jump, scare you and have a lot of gore then this is the film for you. I found the film was similar to Texas Chainsaw and would give it about 6 or 6.5 out of 10.

    By the way one of the girls in the film is gorgous the brunete girl and she has a gorgous arse :rotfl:

    I have seen braindead a cheesy comedy horror made in the 80s Australian I think it was. Wrong Turn is more gory it is not a bad film I would compare it to Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    not certain but I think Braindead (uncut version) is the goriest film made, or was at one time-not saying it's a better film either, it's a bit daft but I enjoyed it.

    http://www.wrongturnmovie.com/

    Wrong turn has a gorgous girl in the film that I like. I have never seen her before but appranlty she has been in buffy. Click on enter the site then cast and crew the girl I like is on the main page wearing white top.
    I thought the film could have been great had it of had a story line or explained why the the people have been mutuanised and killing people.

    It's made in new Zeland. And by lord of the rings director Peter Jackson who also made Bad Taste.
    I didn't really find Texas that gory it was more suggestion rather than all out gore.
    If gores your thing check out http://www.nowhere-dvd.co.uk/ for lots of uncut hard to find splat movies:devil:

    Hi,

    Koppite, if you want to try really gory films, then check out any of the following:

    - Audition
    - Ichi The Killer
    - Cannibal Holocaust
    - Cannibal Ferox
    - Anthropophagous The Beast
    - Meet The Feebles (Peter Jackson directed this sick little puppy)
    - Bad Taste (another Peter Jackson flick)
    - Faces Of Death
    - Necromantik (Jorg Buttgereit directed this)
    - Necromantik 2 (JB again)
    - Der Todesking (JB again)
    - The Beyond (Lucio Fulci)
    - The New York Ripper (Fulci again)
    - Profondo Rosso
    - Suspiria
    - Opera (aka Terror At The Opera)
    - Phenomena (Argento)

    - House Of 1000 Corpses
    - Man Before The Sun (Is that right? The TF Mous Japanese Nazi-atrocity flick)
    - Ilsa: She Wolf Of The SS
    - Death Camp 7

    As Rambo, John J said, you haven't seen many horror films, if you think that "Wrong Turn" is the goriest yet! :D :D :D Trust me! Most of these are REALLY sick and twisted!

    MEN BEHIND the sun.... not sure I ever want to see this one! I thought Audition was more suggestive than all out gore, but it still has one of the most unconformtably sick scenes at the end that I have ever seen.

    It's actually a very good film. Kind of like... a Chinese Schindlers List. That's the way I see it anyway.

    I dont watch films for the gore I like films with good action, good plots etc I would not watch a rubbish films just because it had gore in it.
    I do like horror but a lot of films they say horror but they are more thrillers really for example I would not really class Scream as a proper horror film or the Ring.

    The gore films people have mentioned are old and cheesy I was just saying I was quite surprised at the gore level especially for todays standards and I have not seen a film at the cinema as gory as Wrong Turn thought the film was not that great though better than I thought it would be.
    I was expecting anotehr I know what you did last summer pile of rubbish.

    Koppite,

    I knew what you was getting at with your first thread, but should you mis quote yourself here and people are onto you like a ton of bricks. Basically, I think you was saying that there has not been a film with quite so much gore on the 'cinema' for a while.

    I have not seen this film yet, i might wait for the dvd. These days the cinema is full of noisey @##@#**!, who spoil the film for everyone else.

    At home, I get a experience from a horror that i would not at the cinemas. Not scary when you watch a film with 100 people!!. Try it at midnight on your own, and the muppets in space are scary!.

    I went cinema last night with 2 friends the film started at 10 30 and there was only about 20-30 people so was not too bad. I have seen Zombie and that film is rubbish ok the nail in the eye was painfull but I dont watch a film because of that.
    As the previous person said I was just stating there has not been a film like this in the cinema for a while.

    I might buy it on dvd it was not a bad film I would give it about 6.5 out of 10 and Id give the girl one :D . I did not like the ending becuase looks like there will be a sequal they should leave it like Halloween should have been left at the first one.

    Haloween is regagrded a classic but agin it was not gory but it was the suspense and the atmpsphere that got people the Ring I did not think much to it.

    Which version of the Ring are you refering to?
    I've seen both and think the original is much better even given the differences in budgets available.
    I think the lower budget gave the asian version more edge and realism with the tension being built by the whole atmosphere of the way the film was shot. The american remake although enjoyable was not in the same class and didn't deliver in the same way the original did. This maybe because the originality had already been lost and off course my own personal taste.
    Watch the original ringu if you haven't already a must for fans of intelligent horror:smashin:

    Just another one of the myths surrounding The Man Behind The Sun.
    The one about using real dead bodies in a couple of scenes is true although there's very little actual "gore" in the film. One bit's pretty unforgiveable (the cat/rats scene) but then this was the only bit cut when the film was submitted to the BBFC and then released on vid in the UK back in the 90's. Now, this was the time when the BBFC were hacking stuff to pieces regularly - if a film was as gory as the urban myths claim MBTS is, there's no way the BBFC would have passed it with such minimal cuts. It used to be widely available, although you'd have found it easiest in areas with a strong Chinese population.
    Check the BBFC database if you don't believe me;)

    Not sure many would consider Dario Argento films 'gory' to be honest.

    Men Behind The Sun isn't as bad as it's claimed to be, usually by those who haven't seen it. As RJJ points out, it's all in the way you view it, not necessarily in what you're viewing. There's a difference ;)

    Not a particularly gory movie in it's entirety, but the full uncut eyeball puncture scene in Zombie Flesh Eaters is a classic little 'yeeeeuuccch' moment.

    Spot on James. Not a bad film - but then anything with Coombs is more than watchable.

    Still haven't seen Beyond Reanimator yet :( although The Attic Expeditions was definitely better than I'd hoped it'd be.

    Yuzna's keeping busy though, he's producing Rottweiler, The Nun and Beneath Still Waters for Filmax at the moment.

    I disagree with you there, the Japanese Ring is definately a horror film.

    The American Ring is more supernatural thriller. In the end though classifications matter little as long you enjoy it there is no harm done :)

    The japanese Ring scared me senseless after watching it at 2am on my own, the American Ring (which I saw first) did not scare as much.

    Halloween is a classic, but is not really scary. I have friends who are scared at Friday 13th, they are comedies in my book, nearly completed the collection now :)

    I've not seen Peter Jackson's "Braindead". I have seen "Bad Taste", though, and that is far and away the most disgusting film I've ever seen. If "Braindead" is worse, then I don't want to know....

    If you liked Ringu try Dark Water if you haven't already.
    Very good imo - no gore but atomsphere again gives you the willies.

    The gore and violence is all comic book. It's more funny than horrific imo and anything with a ninja priest in is well worth a look!

    I think there is a big difference between gory and violent. Friday the 13th are gory but it goes over your head, where as I was watching Frenzy the other week where a woman is raped and strangled, which I though was very sickening.

    Hmm, i saw this the other day with some friends. We all came out asking whos stupid idea it was to see that pile of.......(i'll let you finish it).

    I thought it was dreadful and didn't really class it as that gory at all. I've not watched that many horror/gory films but I just didn't think this was that gory. Stupid story, rediculous characters just not a lot to entertain IMHO and pretty predictable in parts.

    Although admittdly this isn't the sort of film I'd normally choose to watch so those who like this genre more may find it more entertaining, or not.

    Good job we didn't pay to watch it!

    Hi,

    As others have said, there is a difference between violent films, and gory films. However, for the sake of argument, I think most of us would agree that a gory horror film would also be classified as being violent as well.

    As for some of the films I mentioned, I only meant that they are gorier than "Wrong Turn", which Koppite originally stated as being the goriest film he'd seen in recent times.

    "Ring" (or "Ringu") is definitely a horror film, albeit containing almost zero gore or violence.

    "Braindead" (or "Dead Alive" as it got renamed in the USA), is definitely gorier than "Bad Taste", and even "Meet The Feebles" gets very close to ranking alongside it, as being sickening. (Ever seen a bluebottle eat it's own body waste, whilst pleasuring itself in a toilet bowl?! Or maybe you'd like to see an elephant making an S&M porno film?)

    Argento films can be pretty gory, even when compared to most modern-day Hollywood "horror" films. Take a look at "Profondo Rosso" and then take a look at "Scream", and tell me Argento isn't gorier,or more violent.

    Anyway, it's ultimately a matter of what you find repellant. I hated "Man Behind The Sun" simply because I didn't find it uncomforting, except for the rats tearing a cat to pieces. Even knowing about the real corpse of a boy being used, and the scene in which a woman has her arms placed in boiling water, and then plunged directly after, into ice, and then has her skin peeled away, it simply didn't repel me. However, something like "Schindler's List" did.

    Like I say, it depends on what you find tasteless or repugnant, as to whether or not a horror film is going to be considered gory or violent.

    Pooch


    P.S. If anyone's interested, teh Sci-Fi Channel, (Sky Digital 130) are doing a long season of about 30 Asia Extreme films, being shown in their full, uncut, uncensored, widescreen and subtitled versions, every Saturday night, at Midnight. So far, they've shown "Ring", "Ring 2", and "Ring 0: Birthday" is tonight - 5th July! Other titles in the season will include "Battel Royale", "Audition", "Freezer", "Dead Or Alive", "Dead Or Alive 2", "The Eye", and many others.
