8 Gory Sites to Get Your Dose of Cheesy Horror
Let me start this post with a fair warning—if you have a weak stomach get out while you can. We are going to enter the realms of the best gore sites on the web.
The word “cheesy” could prove to be a bit misleading. “Cheesy” is synonymous with kitschy and unnecessarily emotional. We will attempt to stay closer to gruesome and morbid because there are enough gore sites on the visible web.
The web was never sanitized. So, close the doors, draw the curtains, and click the mouse as I try giving you a dose of the gore at these eight horrific gory websites.
From the streets of New York to the bylanes of Nanjing, tattoo art is pretty much a 21st Century subcultural trend. But some people can take it really far and turn their bodies into walking canvasses.
BME has curated 3.5 million photos and more than 14000 videos on how to turn your body over to pins, needles, and ink. It is a definitive tattoo, scarification, and ritualistic piercing resource.
As the site says—they are the uncommon subculture and community built by and for modified people.
The body piercings and tattoo art on the site may be tame stuff for some, but for a person who hates the sight of needles, the tattoo detailing and body modifications aren’t far from absolute gore. Some parts of the site require a subscription.
Movies like Annabelle and Curse of Chucky might have ruined the innocence of dolls for you. So this site is another knife slice. The site is in French, but the images speak the universal language of “holy creeps!”
Françoise Duvivier is a wonderfully (and ghoulishly) creative artist who uses mixed media like collages, masks, and dolls to give life to her artistic expression.
Here’s a brief profile on her, but follow the title link to glimpse her unique but scary work.
3. Best Gore
Best Gore is strictly for 18+ audiences. The site can give any other site on this list a run for its money and come out on top. The gore pages are filled with graphic images and videos of bloody, gut-wrenching, and grisly human conditions.
Take the domain name for what it means.
Enable Flash in your browser. The first thing that makes you tingle is the background music. It’s a scare site for sure. And brought to you by none other than Danny DeVito, himself a fan of horror films.
The Blood Factory features horror shorts called Splattercuts. There are about 16 horror shorts on the site now. You can watch them in the “darkened theater” and vote for them.
The site was launched in 2009, but I am not sure how frequently it is getting updated. Maybe, it will stay on as a piece of internet memorabilia.
5. Bloody Fingernail (broken link removed)
You always wanted to write on the walls with blood. Here’s your chance. You can use your mouse to stand-in for your chopped finger and write a message on the “Flash” wall.
You can then send forth the unique message via email, to whomsoever you want to spook. This is less of a horror site and more of a cheesy prank site .
Turn your thirst for cheesy horror into a chance to bump up your knowledge of trivia. The above screenshot says it all. Play the quiz and find out if you know your serial hacker from your code hacker.
Don’t forget to check out More Stuff on the site for some more ways to cure your boredom online.
7. Death Date
The vote for the ultimate gore website can go to this one if you take it too seriously. After all, who would like to know one’s date of death!
It’s a fun site and my guess is the mechanism behind it takes into account any addictions you have to calculate your death age. The site gives your date of death in neutral, optimistic, and pessimistic modes. Take your pick and satisfy your morbid curiosity.
But if you really want to get serious about life, take the assumed date and start living your life to the fullest.
As adults, it takes a lot of convincing to buy into cheesy horror. But kids are naturally drawn to them and also seem to enjoy the goosebumps. So let’s end our list with a “horror” site made just for kids.
Scary for Kids might seem like a creepy website for kids. But try to find out if any of the stories, videos, or scary pictures tingle your spine too. I couldn’t spot the gore here, so it’s safe to sit with your children in front of the monitor.
Maybe, a storytelling session at night would work better.
A Bit of the Cheesy Gore You Can Find on the Web
I decided to stop while I was ahead. These eight are just a whiff of the gore you can find on the web, and to be frank these sites are relatively tame. The dark side of the web is definitely not for the squeamish.
There are websites that wouldn’t have passed muster with the most liberal censor or our family-friendly readership.
It just opens the debate on the dangers of sickening gore being left open on the web. If your taste is still on cheesy horror and disgusting gore, then there are more than enough creepy sites on the web .
