Yeah, I saw 28 weeks later. I cringed at that scene as well. But I wasn't impressed with the sequel because they made the "main" zombie guy like super zombie, that was hard to kill. And it irritated me how the virus got started back up, like for real? Are you kidding me? I wanted to punch the kids, the dad (super zombie-man) and all the stupid people.
I was pissed at the kids too. We go in there and save their asses, clean up their mess and two brats screw everything up. And superman zombie was a p*ssy for running away from his family like that in the beginning.
If its true horror and grit you are after, the two hands down best gruesome movies are The Human Centepede and The Human Centepede 2. Tons of death, but the torture is just as gritty. Also another one is irreversible, in a underground gay sex club this guy bashes the guy who sodomised his fiance in the face with a fire extinguisher. I would have to proclaim myself the gore queen lol. Posted via Mobile Device
When I heard what the Human Centepede was about, I refused to see it. I didn't even watch the South Park remake on TV about it. The thought of doing that to people is so incredibly disturbing, ESPECIALLY FOR THE DUDE IN THE MIDDLE! I really don't think I could watch it. And I am supposed to be all evil and tough!
Did you see Midnight Meat Train? The violence and gore in that movie are wonderful! That movie is all gore, no story really. But if you want blood and guts, that is a good place to start.
I like horror movies. Sure, I jump and squeal, hide my eyes, won't watch them alone, and follow my gf around like a puppy afterwards if we watch one at night 'cause I don't want to be on a level of the house by myself...but they're good fun.
Overdone gore is one thing, but I don't tolerate realistic violence very well. Execution-style killing, realistic torture, reenactments of grisly deaths that actually happened, etc. I haven't watched a graphic war movie since Legends of the Fall about 15 years ago. Almost passed out during the electric chair scene in Green Mile. Couldn't watch the death scene in Braveheart. My partner is really good about warning me and giving me time to leave the room if we're watching a movie that she knows has a scene like this.
I used to be JUST LIKE YOU when it came to more realistic gore and torture. Once upon a time, I had to leave the room during the "cutting off the ear" scene in Reservoir Dogs. I refused to watch Hostel, and I stayed away from all Vietnam movies.
Somewhere along the line I got over it and love watching all those movies now. I think the Saw movies broke me of my fear of watching realistic violence. However, I won't watch the end of Braveheart because I don't want him to die. I hate the ending of that movie. I want all movies to have happy endings dammit!
I hate the ending of that movie. I want all movies to have happy endings dammit!
I'd prefer them all to be happy, too, but there are times when I can see that the story's power is enhanced by the sad ending. If it seems like a necessary ending or I'm prepared for it, I'm fine. We watched Of Mice and Men the other day (I'd never read or seen it before), and I knew what was going to happen at the end after the foreshadowing with the dog being put down. I could also see the necessity, so the ending was sad, but didn't upset me too much. But when the tragic end seems pointless, I get upset. Like upset at the imaginary villain, the person who wrote such a stupid script, the director, whoever let me watch it lol. It's a little illogical.
