Do you hunger for the screen to run red with blood, organs, and entrails? Then these are the goriest horror movies for you. Based on our users’ opinions, the HorrorRated optimised rating system has divined the most gratuitous gore horror movies to satisfy even the thirtiest of bloodlusts.
Looking for a movie bathed in blood? You’ll find the likes of Peter Jackon’s claret-soaked Braindead/Dead Alive and Pascal Laugier’s viscious Martyrs residing here.
Maybe you crave unflinching knowledge of the human anatomany? This is where you will find the surgical sadism of Eli Roth’s Hostel movies or the brutal cadaver abuse in Cannibal Holocaust. How about seeing human flesh morph like a lava lamp? The body-horror brethen of David Cronenberg’s The Fly and the Lovecraft-inspired Re-Animator should be slithering around here somewhere.
If you feel faint at the sight of a paper cut, probably best to move along because these are the movies that put the “gory” in “category”. But if you are a hardened gore-hound that didn’t even flinch when Captain Rhodes was literally gutted in George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead then get rating these gory horror movies to match your taste as either a warning to others or a proclamation of your iron-clad stomach.

Feminist art-house horror. Clever, beautiful and well-crafted. I loved it but not for everyone.
Thrill ride of a movie - kept imagining what I'd do. Very violent. Ending bit of a disappointment.
A. Horror Head.
Excellent physical FX and slow-burning sense of dread. Leaves plenty to the imagination. Terrifying.
Great movie, I love Mila as the ass-kicking Alice.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe
Director: André Øvredal
A great movie! Full of gore and some nice surprises too...
This was not what I expected. In a good way. Highly recommend.
I didn't find it very scary but it is definitely not for the weak stomached
