For a horror movie to be a classified as a ‘Horror’ movie, is has to be, well, ‘horrific’. However, some film-makers love to push that envelope and create horror so shocking, so vile, that the term ‘horrific’ becomes a grand understatement.

‘Gory’ cinema goes back as far as the 1960s, with George A. Romero’s Night Of The Living Dead being the first mainstream horror film to feature copious amounts of gore, as well as copious amounts of terror. Since then, the niche market of gory horror movies has flourished to this day, dominating the market in the1980s with the popularity of teen slasher movies.

However, in more recent years, gore cinema has really forced the line of ‘tasteful’ thanks to the advent of better and more realistic special effects, and the phenomenon of people walking out of cinemas because of a gory film has become much more of a commonplace.

Following is a list of some of the more grotesque scenes that exist in horror media. Reader beware: these scenes shock, repulse, and, once seen, cannot be unseen.
