    lol Sexual gratisfication from gore. I always joke how much it turns me on and pounce on DP when we watch bloody movie.

    I personally HATE when they dont show the good bits. The more gore the better, Im watching a movie not reading a book, I dont want to use my imagination thats what the movie is for.

    Default Re: Torture Porn?

    Theres enough awful things in the news without watching it for entertainment. But i hate graphic, gory movies that seem to just glorify violence.

    I *personally* think they should be heavily restricted and less accessible at least.....

    I *personally* think all love movies should be banned because they are crap.

    I agree except for the last part. I would like to see them banned

    But i realise thats unlikely to happen

    What is a "love" movie? Do you mean romance movies? What about African Queen? Or high society? Or lost in translation? Amelie? All romances. All great.

    I realise you're trying to make a point, I just don't agree every romance movie is in the same league.

    Well yeah just trying to make a point. Just because some people dont like it doesnt mean it should be banned. If you dont like it, dont watch it. Its simple.

    Oh Saw has a plot and Hostel is made to make you think.

    Saw actually has you leaving thinking. Its about valuing your life and people not being able to see what they have until they risk losing it. If you have the will to fight for your life you will cherish it. Of course there is the twist where Amanda goes back to not doing the right things so she again is unknowingly being tested in a later movie and fails. One is about letting go of anger and resentment, a man goes through a trial where he has the option of letting everyone involved in his sons death die. He tried to save them all, he learned to let his anger go.

    Hostel I believe is made to make us think what we as humans are capable of, showing us that every day stresses so effect us and when we are in so much control we need a release, plus the ending of 2 is awesome the revenge she gets on him is great.

    I love them, human centipede was very twisted and graphic they had to do the second one in black and white so people wouldn't get ill. So why do we not label some of these very explicit comedies with full nudity, Comedy Porn?

    I believe they want the word porn in there to try to discourage people to admit they enjoy the movies, to shame them into not liking them. I for one think the more twisted and gory the better, I love gore I use to have a subscriptions to a magazine Fangoria when I was a teen and loved it. I love all horror movies even B rated ones.

    Saw remains my favorite and I am saddened they stopped making them.

    I don't think they should be banned, but saying romances should be banned is hardly making the point that you're trying to make, namely that a movie or a genre shouldn't be banned just because people don't like it.

    I'm not sure about the whole "if you don't like it don't watch it" argument. Where does beastiality then fit? Or child pornography? I don't like either of those one bit and society agrees and bans them.

    I think torture porn walks a very thin line and most main****** film makers know how to stay on the right side of the line.

    I don't think there's anything new in any of this and the fact Saw and Hostel have finished and haven't been replaced shows it's not that immensely popular as a subculture.

    And I don't think human centipede is torture porn. Definitely sick and probably depraved, but not torture porn.

    By the way LMF you must have incredibly interesting internal debates if sex without love disgusts you but you enjoy watching these movies. Or do you want to provoke something?

    The saw movies are fantastic. The gore is just part of what it's about. The plot especially of the first one is great. I love the thinking that goes behind it and watching what people will do to save themselves.
