10 Bloodiest, Goriest Movies Ever Made
Here they are. Ten of the bloodiest, goriest movies noteworthy for their depiction of blood-letting. And out of these ten there are some that are really violent, those that depict the cruelest, sickest, most violent, gruesome, upsetting and sadistic acts. There are scenes that are disturbing and in some cases, sickening. So be warned. However, this list is intended to be fun and interesting so sit back, read on, and enjoy.
There may be more out there and the list grows everyday but at the time of writing I personally feel the following movies are the bloodiest and goriest of them all.
Saving Private Ryan
Steven Spielberg's depictions of the D-Day invasion at Normandy on June 6th, 1944, will go down in history for their gritty realism. Spielberg tempered the terrible violence that the infantry suffered as they fought for the Allies with a sensitive storyline that made us care about the characters, and to some extent feel the brutality of the battle.
Kill Bill ( Vols. I & 2)
Quentin Tarantino with his usual gusto, casted Uma Thurman as the Bride, a vengeful former member of the Deadly Assassination Squad. She was betrayed by her former lover, Bill, turning her wedding day into a scene of bloody carnage. The Bride vows revenge.
Tarantino's excellent grasp of cinematic pacing is clearly seen in this film. The martial arts scenes are superb and the bloodletting is in full flow.
The first film, and its equally grisly sequel, featured a dizzying pace of violence and aggression, as he Bride continues her quest - to kill Bill.
Kingdom Of Heaven
Ridley Scott makes us relive the bloodshed and brutality of the Crusades in his new film, Kingdom of Heaven. Balian (Orlando Bloom), finds out his father is a Knight, who is traveling on horseback to Jerusalem. His father invites him to go on the quest, but Balian refuses. Only after Balian kills a village priest does he agree to go along. Eventually, Balian becomes a protector of Jerusalem, fighting against the Saracen king, Saladin, and his strong army.
The film portrays dazzling swordfights and hand-to-hand combat, set within the Holy Land itself.
Bloody combat and the war cry of “Sparta” are the heart of this film, which told the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, in 480 B.C.
Director Zak Snyder’s extensive use of color helps to emphasize and enhance the mood of each scene, and the CGI work is superb. The plot is simple but deep, blending bloody violence, sensuality and brutality and moments of beauty into an exciting film experience.
Of the four Rambo movies this one is the bloodiest of all, no doubt about it.
John Rambo, who had decided to live a quiet life in Thailand, is dragged back into action when his conscience led him to assist Christian missionaries as they attempted to aid the Karen people of Burma. The whole Burmese region was a war-torn powder keg of crime, murder, and injustice, and Rambo could no longer look the other way. He took the missionaries upriver to Burma, in his own boat, and they had little idea what bloodshed and horror awaited them there. Rambo tried to protect them, in his own, inimitable fashion.

The Top 100 Most Violent Movies Ever Made
Martyrs, a 99 minute depiction of some of the most visually and emotionally perturbing material ever committed to film, made French director Pascal Laugier an overnight sensation in the realm of horror movies. Unlike the usual blood-and-gore films, Martyrs depicts extreme physical and emotional violence.
The film tells the brutal tale of a girl who suffered unimaginable abuse as a young child, and the unspeakable horrors that unfold when she arrives at an isolated cabin in the woods fifteen years later.
The reason that this lens' title does not include the word "horror" is this: Peter Jackson's Dead Alive may be the bloodiest film ever made (many allege it to be so) but it evokes an explicitly comedic response, not unlike the third installment in the Evil Dead series. In fact it borrows heavily from Evil Dead.
Dead Alive centers on a man, Lionel, whose mother is bitten by a "Sumatran rat-monkey" and turned into a zombie. As easily predicted, Lionel must take on the rest of his neighborhood, who, of course, have also become zombies.
Dead Alive was released as Braindead in New Zealand in 1992.
Das Komabrutale Duell
The familiar tale of underworld revenge gets a supernatural tweak in this gore-drenched splatter-fest that pits a vicious group of gangsters against an immortal mob of evisceration-happy killers.
I find the plot to be a little vague and hard to make it out within the dozen minutes of gore scenes in between sporadic dialogue. Simple put, the film is about a guy who was put into a coma by the Eightlets Mafia, a gang of eight identical siblings, and has awoken years later to find his life in ruins so he goes on a revenge trip. Most of the film shows our hero and two friends running around finding gang members and getting into fights with them, killing or dismembering one another, somehow piecing themselves back together, and going back at it again.
Philosophy of a Knife
The true history of Japanese Unit 731, from its beginnings in the 1930s to its demise in 1945, and the subsequent trials in Khabarovsk, USSR, of many of the Japanese doctors from Unit 731. Part documentary and part recreation, the story of this film is told from the perspectives of a young nurse who witnessed countless horrors while working for the Unit and a young Japanese soldier who is unsure if nationalistic pride should supercede basic human decency—especially when he begins to feel pity for an imprisoned Russian girl. The soldier's life became a living hell as he is compelled to carry out atrocious experiments on the other prisoners, using them as guinea pigs in this shocking tale of mankind's barbarity.
Alright, here it is. The Big One. This film has them all - blood, gore, brutal rape, violence against animal. It is so violent brutal that it was once banned (or maybe still is) in the following countries: Singapore, Norway, Australia, Malaysia, the Philippines, New Zealand, Ireland, Iceland, England, Scotland, Wales and Italy. See Wikipedia.
The film isn't just violent; it's convincingly violent. So much so that following its premier in Milan, director Ruggero Deodato was arrested on charges of obscenity. He was then subsequently charged - no joke - with the murder of his cast, whom Italian authorities actually believed to be dead. It wasn't until Deodato produced the actors in court that he was acquitted of the charges.
