10 Gory Horror Films That Will Make Hardcore Horror Fans Frighten Out ...

One person may think Halloween or Friday the 13th movies are a given. Another may think horror movies include The Wolfman, Frankenstein, or Dracula.

There are also those horror enthusiasts who like the extreme. Movies that would terrify or make other fans enthuse are excite these individuals.

The Sadness (2021)

The age of zombie movies has worn off. There are so many shows and zombie films out there. Who could have ever freshened up to this? It's a zombie film like you've never seen that will push you to the limit. Make sure you see this movie.

It goes beyond the norm in terms of bizarre disturbing. It pushes the limit starting with the first kill scene and never gives up. It is one of those films that you always wonder yourself, "What am I watching?" Just when you think the limit wouldn't be extended any further, it does.

Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

Cannibal Holocaust is a film that was so disturbing that the filmmaker was sentenced to life in prison for murdering his actors ten days after it was released. He had to demonstrate to the court that Cannibal Holocaust was just a movie. The actors were still alive and well.

The film was well ahead of its time, and it would take years before the found footage technique of filmmaking would become well-known. However, the film is quite disturbing, and caution is advised when viewing.

Society (1989)

The body horror in this film is horrifying and frightening. Despite all of the grossness, the film has something to say about society's class corruption. Society takes the concept of the rich or the elite feeding the middle class or poor in a way that has probably never been done.

The ending of this film both sideswipes you and takes you on a dangerous, perverted path. But aren't all of those things indicative of a great horror film?

Ichi the Killer (2001)

Ichi the Killer is about a sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer who loves to give and receive pain. Kakihara (Tadanobu Asano) is convinced that his boss has been kidnapped. Kakihara eventually meets Ichi (Nao Omori). Ichi is a very disturbed man who was made to be that way.

Kakihara is fascinated by Ichi's sadistic demeanour. It's one of those very severe horror films that most people only see once because it's so unbearable. The film does have a cult following, though.

Black Christmas (1974)

Some consider Black Christmas to be the father of slashers rather than Halloween. It was released before Halloween, and its impact can be seen in many slasher films.

It's a nasty, unsettling film with well-written protagonists for a slasher flick. It's a film that still shocks and terrorizes viewers today.

Dogtooth (2009)

Dogtooth isn't gory, but it's a disturbing film to see. The film is about a manipulative, controlling father who refuses to allow his children to grow up mentally, thus making them prisoners in their own homes.

This type of narrative has been done before, but never in a disturbing cringe-worthy way. Again, this film isn't gory, but rather disturbing and cringey.

Hellraiser (1987)

Clive Barker is a storyteller who enjoys crossing the line between sexual pleasure and pain. In all of his films, pain and pleasure become muddled.

Hellraiser may not be the goriest film on the list, but it is a disorienting experience for those who have never seen it. If you're unfamiliar with extreme horror movies, this is probably the one you should start with.

The Hills Have Eyes (1976)

Even though The Hills Have Eyes was released in 1976, it is still disturbing to people today. It is an early film by Wes Craven, the man responsible for Scream and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Two horror films that scared people silly.

The Hills Have Eyes is a more brutal film than both of them. A vacationing family is attacked by a family of inbred mutant cannibals. No, my friend, this isn't the X-Men, but something dark, disgusting, and horrific.

Kuso (2017)

Kuso is a film that you want to stop and stare at, but you can't seem to get your eyes from it.

If you are ready to go on a wild adventure, check out this movie.

Anthropophagous (1980)

Warning: Don't watch Anthropophagous on a full stomach unless you want to be cleaning up vomit. It was released during the era of video nastiness and is considered to be extreme even for a video nasty. Cannibal Holocaust is similar to Anthropophagous.

It was assumed that the actors died in the film. Authorities in the United Kingdom confiscated it because they thought it was an actual snuff film. It had a typical 80s video nasty plot: Tourists are stranded on an island and are pursued by a murderer. It has lost some of its charm today, yet it still has some scenes that will make you sick.
