When looking back at the horror genre of film, we’ve got a variety of styles, all the way from well-made psychological horror, found footage films and the odd schlocky jump-scare film. But what are the goriest movies ever made? You know, those films which make you cower behind the sofa and look on in odd delight. Gory films certainly have a certain schlock and gross-factor to them, but in this genre, even a film with a plot is too much. We’re looking at back-to-back disgust and the deep, dark corners of creative minds.
We don’t condone or even recommend watching some of these video nasties. You may find some of the images in this article disturbing.
1. Driller Killer
The Driller Killer was infamous for being on the UK’s ‘Video Nasties’ list- banned for its violent content. However, The Driller Killer is surprisingly comedic in its nature. Centered around the titular Driller Killer, our main character satisfies his urge to kill the dregs of society with a power drill. Years on, Driller Killer is now an iconic film, garnering much attention from cult film enthusiasts. A remake was originally planned in 2007. However, the project was halted indefinitely as the filmmakers could not obtain the rights to the original movie.
