Everybody loves a decent horror movie. Some people get off on the blood and guts and mucus spilling all over the place, while others prefer to cower uncontrollably in the arms of a loved one. Whatever the reason for watching a horror flick, there's no question that a decent film with plenty of gore can entertain an audience like no other genre.
With this in mind, we've compiled a list of the top 5 Gory Movie Moments.
#5. Girl gets her eye cut off in Hostel
Three backpackers meet a Russian man in Amsterdam who tells them about a Slovakian hostel full of American-loving, promiscuous women. Like most men, the guys follow their penis to Slovakia for fun and fornication.
Do you remember how you felt when you first saw her eyeball sagging from the nerves after she'd met the unfortunate end of a blowtorch? How about when the guy doesn't know what to do and decides to cut it off? Personally, I was shaking my head in utter disbelief and I honestly didn't know whether to laugh or turn away! The oozing puss was really just the cherry on top of the whole thing. Although I didn't particularly rate the movie, this scene shows that a tiny bit of bodily puss can be more effective than blood and guts.

#4. Uncle Frank gets hooked in Hellraiser
Lunatic Frank Cotton purchases an antique puzzle box from a dealer in Morocco. When he solves the puzzle, chains fly out of the box and tear into his flesh. Then a guy with pins in his head, the aptly named Pinhead, restores the room. Hidden in the depths of the room, Franks soul is restored by a drop of his brothers blood. Frank then encourages his brothers wife Julia to bring him more bodies to restore himself.
The final scene in Hellraiser is cinematic gore at it's very finest. Sick and twisted Uncle Frank has almost restored himself, having killed his own brother in the process, and is about to kill his brothers daughter Kirsty. Unfortunately for Frank, the demons are back and he gets ripped to pieces by dozens of hooked chains tearing into his flesh and pulling him apart. Even with hooks pulling his cheeks apart to make him look like the Michelin man, Frank still manages to lick his lips in the way only a creepy Uncle can, before uttering the immortal line, "Jesus Wept."

#3. Rhodes being torn apart in Day Of The Dead
The third movie in George A. Romero's Living Dead series is a zombie assault on a military establishment. Essentially, the zombies sweep through the underground compound, killing scientists and soldiers as they go. One of the scientists had been working on a zombie named 'Bub' to study how much of his mind was still human. Commanding officer Captain Rhodes doesn't like it and kills a few doctors before fleeing and leaving his own men to die.
After getting shot by Bub, Rhodes tries to escape through a door which inevitably leads to a load of zombies. You know what's going to happen when he opens the door but poor old Rhodes hasn't got clue. He gets tagged in the gut by Bub and the zombies grab him from behind. What's great here is the stretching of the skin right before he literally gets ripped into two pieces! All of his blood and guts ooze out in what is a very graphic scene indeed. Another great moment is when Bub gives him the military salute before leaving him to get devoured. Classic.

#2. The torture scene in The Audition
A middle-aged Japanese man by the name of Aoyama who lost his wife seven years ago is urged by his 17-year old son to start dating women. The father and his friend (a film producer) hold mock auditions under the pretense of auditioning for a new film, so that they can find a suitable bride for him. As soon as he sees the beautiful Asami, with her soft voice and quiet confidence - he falls in love.
This entire scene is just a fantastic piece of torture and pain. To say that Asami is unstable would be the understatement of the century and when she finds a photo of Aoyama's dead wife, she flips a lid and spikes his drink. Upon waking, he finds that he has been injected with a drug that disables his muscles but keeps his nerves alert. The tension in this scene is amazing as Asami sticks large pins deep into his body and eyelids. As she tortures him she tells him that he will never be completely hers and that she will kill his son. The kicker in this scene is when she pulls out the sharp wire used to cut meat and bone and wraps it around his foot. If you haven't seen this movie, you really need to. The scene shown below is 8 minutes long but if you want to jump straight to the wire incident, skip ahead to 5.25 on the video.

#1. Lionel chopping up zombies in Dead Alive/Braindead
Lionel is a young mama's boy living in a normal neighbourhood. That is until his evil mother gets bitten by an infected rat-monkey (don't ask). She gets sick and dies. But then she comes back to life as an undead zombie and begins killing and eating dogs, nurses, friends and neighbours - infecting residents of the town in the process. Lionel is the only one who can stop her...and them!
Holy blood-and-guts-fest Batman! This scene has it all. Lionel waltzes into a house full of zombies with a lawn mower strapped around his neck and nonchalantly proclaims, "Parties over!". What ensues is a blood bath of arms, fingers, ears, noses, and heads as he plows through the zombies like a man possessed. Over 300 litres of blood were used for this mammoth scene of zombie slaughter. Keep a look out for the random head that gets shoved into a blender and set to juice mode. It's sheer brilliance. I'd love to see what kind of zombie comedy type movie Peter Jackson could come up with if he were given a Lord Of The Rings sized budget.
