List RulesVote up the goriest movies ever.

Are you a fan of super gory movies? If so, you’ve come to the perfect place to find a new favorite gory movie. Go ahead and browse through this list of the goriest movies ever made to find a new favorite splatter classic. They're listed in order of the most popular gory movie ever made to the least popular, so you can easily see which gory movies are considered the best by voters just like you. If you don’t agree with the rankings, you can vote for your own favorite gory movie to get it placed higher on the list or vote down others. Let others see which gory movies you consider to be the best.

You can also discover foreign cult classics such as Ichi the Killer, which is one of the most violent movies ever made. If your idea of violent is Scream, then be prepared to be shocked with nearly over-the-top levels of gore. In the Japanese Guinea Pig series, intestines flying every which way isn't uncommon. Also, keep in mind that these don't necessarily have to be horror movies, as even the best action movies can be quite gory too.

You can also add your favorite gory movie to the list if you don’t see it listed. Or, you can copy and paste from the list to make your very own list of favorite gore movies. If you are hoping for a gory movie marathon to celebrate Halloween with, you are sure to find several gory movies on this list that you’ve never seen, making the marathon of gory movies a special fright night to remember.

Go ahead and stock up on plenty of Halloween candy for easily accessible snacks. You won’t want to take your eyes off the gross movie or you might miss the best part!
