There is a fine line that divides gore from violence when we talk about movies. Sam Peckinpah, Gaspar Noe or David Cronenberg are a few names that deal with intolerable amount of violence in their films, but this is solely to launch an assault on a person’s mentality. Their films are beautifully crafted and never let the act of violation take the center stage. On the other hand gory movies indulge themselves only in bloodshed and a X rated visual lecture on the human anatomy. There are a few though, that have a shocking underlying social commentary and use this graphical violence to compliment the exaggeration in the presentation of their themes. But most of them as I have pointed out earlier only intend to shock audiences by demanding a stimulus, which doesn’t take much effort considering not everyone can swallow a “disembowelment scene” with a glass of Coke.
Now, I have constructed a list of best gory movies, that contain evidence of great filmmaking as well as utter crap and also range in the depiction of gore, so that it can intrigue the hardcore followers as well as the newcomers. Here is the list of top gory films ever that you simply cannot handle: You can watch some of these best gory movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
15. Aftermath (1994)
Starting off the list with a 32 minute short film, ‘Aftermath’ directed by Nacho Cerda. He is known for his Trilogy of Death, which started with ‘Awakening’ in 1990 about a boy who expriences an out-of-body phenomenon. This was followed by the controversial Aftermath, which featured the most horrific depiction of necrophilia. Most people consider death to be the end of the journey on this plane, and believe that the body is laid to rest while the spirit faces the consequences. Cerda destroys this very thought, and if death wasn’t scary enough, he frightens you with the horrific afterlife.
