The Top Ten
1 Dead Alive

If we are talking gore, then this movie takes the cake! It is so ultra-violent and hilarious all at one time. It makes you gag while laughing!

Cannibal Holocaust may have real animal killing, but this list is about gore, not cruelty and controversy. Dead Alive is basically the goriest movie ever. Zombie baby in a blender, Lawn Mower Finale, if you've seen this movie, then you know what I'm talking about.

I don't think I have the "guts" to see this twice. So many folks were killed in such gruesome ways.

2 Cannibal Holocaust

Brutal film. Literally tore real live animals to pieces. The overall movie sucks, but the good 30 minutes of horrible violence is worth it, and something I've yet to see duplicated.

The reason this should be higher than Dead Alive is that there are actual animal deaths in this. But if those were props, then Dead Alive would be higher.

I haven't seen this movie before, but I've heard some serious stories about it, and they sound pretty gruesome.

3 Saw lll

The goriest out of all the Saw movies... I heard that 3 people went to the hospital after seeing it.

This is probably where the series delved more into gore.

The brain surgery scene nearly made me throw up.

4 The Human Centipede II, Full Sequence

Should be higher on the list. I invite friends over and sit them down and play this movie to watch reactions. Only movie that ever made me actually vomit. Makes the first one look like Sesame Street.

The entire sick franchise. Had to look up gory to see if the meaning tallies. It does: savage, unpleasant. I would like to add - disgusting and sick to the core.

Seriously revolting film, I was gagging loads during it. It fully embraces the level that you can go to with the Human Centipede films.

5 The Evil Dead

I watched this movie during the daytime, but I was scared stiff. Scariest movie ever, period.

6 Ichi the Killer

A very gory and messed up movie, but still a very good movie.

7 Hostel

Why did they make this? To recreate A Clockwork Orange in real life? This is creepy. Movies like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Psycho, Halloween, and Child's Play are all fun to watch and great, but this is taking it too far! I have friends in the army who cringe when seeing this. And they were doctors!

Who could forget the part with a blowtorch to a girl's face? The eye slicing made me dry heave!

This movie is just packed with sex, nudity, blood, and torture.

8 Martyrs

The final torture sequence makes this brutally gory all by itself, even with most of the sequence off-screen.

9 Evil Dead 2
10 Cabin Fever

This movie has a lot of violence issues.

The Contenders
11 High Tension

This was one of the most disturbing movies I've ever seen, but I would add The Feast series to this list.

12 Dawn of the Dead

By far the greatest zombie film ever made, I can watch it over and over again. A George A. Romero.

13 Saw II
14 Dawn of the Dead (2004)
15 August Underground's Mordum

Man, this is one very sick movie, and it's not only the goriest, but the most obscene. Too much like a real snuff film. Gore is awesome when done right, but this goes way too far and is too realistic.

NC17 banned everywhere. I love gore. I love Saw and Cannibal Holocaust, but this - come on.

16 30 Days of Night
17 A Serbian Film
18 Saw VI

The opening scene is sadistic and downright brutal, with people having to rip themselves apart to survive, one of the goriest of the series.

19 Final Destination 2

Very creative, surprising and fun. It's not a movie with a killer with a knife in the darkness of the night. It's the same death... Haunting his victims.

20 Black Christmas

This movie is so good. I loved it. It is way better than the original one.

21 Saving Private Ryan

You can make any horror movie as gory as you want, but it's all made up. This stuff actually happened. No sicko made it up.

This is the only movie that gets my vote on this list.

Even though this is not a horror film, it still feels like you're getting shot.

22 Dredd
23 Saw lV

This almost made it to #1 because of the hair trap and bedroom one, but clearly it got worse after this one.

24 Final Destination 3
25 Saw V
