    I`ve never understood "torture porn" or it`s allure. You have to have a few nuts and bolts loose to enjoy this stuff.

    @madduck: Of course it is!

    Is it wrong that the human centipede disturbs me more than all the gore?

    okay- I do not need to see it. Sometimes it is just silly, not icky- people can exaggerate so with these warning labels!

    The term "torture porn" is meaningless, and is usually used by schmucks who imagine they inhabit a moral high ground. You can find paintings from medieval Europe depicting the torments of hell, or statues of the scourged Christ from 17th century Spain, that are as gruesome as any modern movie. Violence is part of the world.

    Some of the movies here, like "The Human Centipede" or "Cannibal Holocaust", hold no interest for me. The others are simply violent movies of varying degrees of quality. Nothing fetishistic about any of it.

    Whoever is distubed by this needs to grow up. These are MOVIES, for f**ks sake. Actors and fake blood. How can someone live in a world rife with cancer, Alzheimer`s, natural disasters, etc., and get upset or indignant over ... movies?

    You want real "torture porn?" Try sitting through an Adam Sandler movie.

    @jake justus what the hell do you mean the term torture porn is meaningless? who the hell are you say that its meaningless? are you the god of term usage? torture pron is just the term that has been given to movies that have no plot or character development just mindless slaughter. like gladiators fighting to the death back in the day. yes, violence is part of the world, but how does that make the term torture porn meaningless? you confuse me sir! i may be a schmuck (i think, i dont what it means, i always thought it was just something the jews used to insult non-jews), but i definitely do not imagine that i inhabit a moral high ground. im pretty low when it comes to morals.

    and for the record, devils rejects is not torture porn. i would go through the list but seeing devils rejects on here upset me so i didnt bother watching the rest. and then jakes comment confused me so now here i sit writing a long drawn out comment to another video i didnt even watch.

    @robthelurker

    Have you ever considered why it is called torture "porn" and not just torture "movies." Porn implies that people who enjoy these violent movies get a sick sexual thrill from violence -- i.e., are depraved. Why would anyone tar an entire segment of movie viewers with this brush?

    Perhaps instead of referring to torture porn as a meaningless phrase, I should have said it was a loaded phrase. When Gibson`s "Passion" came out, many reviewers were lapping up the phrase "torture porn." It was a quick way to demonize Christians as sickos. I couldn`t care either way, not being Christian myself, but I noted the obvious glee with which some of the reviewers bandied the phrase around.

    I enjoy many of the movies that the schmucks refer to as "torture porn." And I agree with you about "The Devil`s Rejects." I respect language, and I don`t care for it when idiots coin idiotic terms.

    Jake, I think you are reading too much into the `porn` part. I am a huge fan of horror as well as many movie genres but to me the `porn` meaning here fits this better As described by IMDB

    Anything someone can like or drool over can be `porn`.

    There is car porn, gun porn, justice porn tech porn, earth porn (a personal favorite), food porn, etc. you get the idea. Don`t get so fixed on a term. This is one case where they are using the term in a good sense and not a `sexual` sense.

    Relax and enjoy.

    @kitteh

    Did you notice the quote from Eli Roth in your own IMDB link: "I find the whole notion of torture porn insulting. People assume these are movies made by idiots for idiots. They`re not. These films are very subversive."

    Roth makes a valid point. Ultra-violent movies like "Ichi the Killer" from Japan, "I Saw The Devil" from South Korea, and "Dream Home" from Hong Kong have their own smart creative sensibility, and they deserve more than a trite descriptive phase. That`s all.

    Seen all of these. Out of all of them, I would say Martyrs is the most disturbing...

    Other films which were not included but which are even more disturbing and gory are:
    -Wolf Creek
    -The Horseman
    -The last house on the Left
    -Irreversible
    -I Spit on your grave
    -Antichrist

    Yup. kitteh9lives is correct. Nothing I like more then some guitar porn!

    It`s just a reference to the explicit use of torture as the main draw of the movie. There is a big difference between a horror movie, a slasher movie and torture porn.

    Probably not good to watch Passion of the Christ or 12 Years a Slave while high on pot. Get a fit of the giggles.
