Editorials 10 Goriest Horror Movies You Need to See From the Last Three Decades Published 2 years ago on April 21, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Here is a selection of the goriest horror movies you need to see from the last three decades. From Peter Jackson to Sam Raimi, Dark Universe presents a list of 10 beloved gore classics from legendary directors in the genre. 1. Braindead (1992) Peter Jackson’s Braindead is unquestionably one of the goriest horror movies ever made. As well as directing classic titles such as Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles, Braindead remains Jackson’s best piece of work in the genre by far. The highlight of the movie has to be the infamous lawnmower massacre scene, in which hordes of zombies are mutilated and turned into a pile of bloody mush. 2. Evil Dead (2013) Director Fede Álvarez took on a challenging task when he remade Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead. What makes this movie a fan favorite is the ultra extreme, over the top blood and guts thrown at the audience in splatacular fashion. It’s dark, creepy, atmospheric, and features a horrifying soundtrack to maximize the experience. 3. Maniac (2012) A modern take on William Lustig’s original horror classic, Maniac. Franck Khalfoun’s version is a pure, unrelenting horror movie, featuring graphic scenes of violence and gore that will make you feel rather uncomfortable. The incredible soundtrack deserves a mention, which injects absolute dread and pays homage to past horror scores of the ’80s. 4. Martyrs (2008) Martyrs is not a horror movie for those of you with a squeamish stomach. From French director Pascal Laugier, Martyrs is one of the most brutal, dark, savage horror movies ever made. I challenge you to sit through it to the very end, which won’t be a pleasant experience. If you are looking for extreme bloodshed to satisfy your cravings, then look no further than this twisted offering. Easily one of the best horror movies of the last decade. 5. The Hills Have Eyes (2006) Alexandre Aja’s The Hills Have Eyes is an absolutely stunning remake of the late Wes Craven’s original cult classic shocker. This movie is loaded with plenty of graphic kills, extreme blood and guts, and a savage family of flesh-eating cannibals who deserve to die in the most painful ways. Praise must go to K.N.B. for delivering some truly gruesome effects. 6. Terrifier (2016) Damien Leone’s Terrifier, starring our good friend David Howard Thornton as Art the Clown, is one of the most effective, gruesomely impactful, independent horror movies to come along in quite some time. What they managed to pull off on a low budget in terms of graphic gore and realistic violence is beyond excellent. 7. Tokyo Gore Police (2008) Tokyo Gore Police is a revenge-driven, blood-soaked massacre from the mind of Japanese film director Yoshihiro Nishimura. Asian horror doesn’t get any better than this ultra-gory, humorous, grotesque, rather bizarre monster movie. Watching Eihi Shiina slice and dice with her Katana swords is very satisfying. 8. Candyman (1992) Surprisingly for a ’90s slasher, Bernard Rose’s Candyman is fairly gruesome. Tony Todd portrays a hook-wielding urban legend who appears once his name is called upon five times. Unquestionably, Candyman belongs in this list of the goriest horror movies because it carves up some fantastic blood and gore moments. 9. Friday the 13th (2009) Marcus Nispel’s fierce remake of Sean S. Cunningham’s original slasher classic Friday the 13th is a horror movie that many fans either love or hate. Whatever your opinion is, there’s no denying that it’s one of the most vicious, blood-drenched entries in the franchise. Jason is back to his machete chopping roots. 10. High Tension (2003) After you watch French director Alexandre Aja’s High Tension, you may think twice about traveling out to the country. When a psychotic truck driver suddenly turns up and begins his bloody rampage with a giant saw, it’s not long before the extreme blood and gore begin to shower the screen with the red stuff.
