Best Gore Scene of 2008

And the nominees are ...

Inside - Head Blown Apart



Frontier(s) - Axed and Table Sawed



The Ruins - Double Amputation



The Machine Girl - Chainsaw Legged In Two



Other - If you have a favorite gore scene of 2008 that I have not included, leave a comment and let me know about it! And don't say the Mirrors jaw rip. That movie sucked and that scene did too! Except for the part with Amy Smart's buttocks.

CAST YOUR VOTES!

* Don't get on me about Inside and Frontier(s) being released in 2007 because it says so on IMDb. They came out in America on DVD in 2008 and that's what i'm basing their release dates on.

Excellent choices - I would be happy with any of those :-)

What about Ted Raimi's death scene in Midnight Meat Train?!? That was awesome!

Unfortunately, I haven't yet seen MMT!

Oh man, you are in for a treat!
February 17th, my friend! :-)

Can't wait!

Yikes, I have not seen Inside, or Frontier(s) yet, but from those clips I cringed more than I think I ever have while watching a film (let alone a ONE minute long clip!) I'd have to double-vote for those two films. The Ruins... I enjoyed it, but really, the film was nothing special, and the scene was not nearly as intense as the first two.

Oh, and MMT... ugh. Terrible, terrible film. Even at the discount theaters, where it was released, I felt ripped off. I'm amazed at how divided the public is with this film. Either you love it, or you absolutely hate it.

Happy to have made you cringe!

Probably gonna check out Meat Train soon being that it just came out on DVD. Will post my thoughts when I do so.

Well, it's not my favourite movie of the bunch....but, well, there's just something so gutterly visceral about that Frontier(s) scene.

When watching these movies, that's the scene that probably made me jump up and say "FUCK YEAH!" the most. Good enough for a vote, I reckon.

I never saw Machine Girl...never even heard of it, in fact. Didn't watch the clip yet, as if it's gory i'd like to see it in the proper context.

Johnny said...

If you're a fan of over the top gore, definetly give Machine Girl a watch!

Bar said...

Well I've watched one or two other movies I discovered here and so far they haven't let me down, so I guess it's on the list.

Johnny said...

That's what I like to hear! =)

This has got nothing to do with gore scenes '08, but I just thought you might wanna know you got a dead link happening on "The many masks of Michael Myers".

Johnny said...

Thank you for alerting me of that. Fixed it.
