The word “cheesy” could prove to be a bit misleading. “Cheesy” is synonymous with kitschy and unnecessarily emotional. However, we will attempt to stay closer to gruesome and morbid because there are enough gore sites on the visible web.
The web was never sanitized. So, close the doors, draw the curtains, and click the mouse as I try giving you a dose of the gore at these ten horrific gory websites.
From the streets of New York to the bylanes of Nanjing, tattoo art is pretty much a 21st Century subcultural trend. But some people can take it far and turn their bodies into walking canvasses.
BME has curated 3.5 million photos and more than 14000 videos on how to turn your body over to pins, needles, and ink. It is a definitive tattoo, scarification, and ritualistic piercing resource.
As the site says—they are the uncommon subculture and community built by and for modified people.
The body piercings and tattoo art on the site may be tame stuff for some, but for a person who hates the sight of needles, the tattoo detailing and body modifications aren’t far from absolute gore. Some parts of this gory website require a subscription.
Movies like Annabelle and Curse of Chucky might have ruined the innocence of dolls for you. So this site is another knife slice. The site is in French, but the images speak the universal language of “holy creeps!”
Françoise Duvivier is a wonderfully (and ghoulishly) creative artist who uses mixed media like collages, masks, and dolls to give life to her artistic expression.
Here’s a brief profile on her, but follow the title link to glimpse her unique but scary work.
There are movie streaming sites, and then there are horror streaming sites like Bloody Disgusting. The entertainment site for horror fans brings you everything close to gore under its umbrella. Start with the editorials and articles to keep pace with horror movies and shows. Then, check out video trailers of upcoming shows and video games. And round it off with their podcasts like Creepy, which brings you chilling creepypastas and urban legend stories.
Don’t take the domain name for what it means. It’s a very scary but entertaining corner of the internet.
Read the advisory on the screen before you dive into the horror webtoon. The South Korean webtoon was created in 2011, and it has aged well after it went viral after its launch. The comic is an urban ghost story with twists, turns, and obligatory jump scares that might not be for the faint of heart.
You can use this famous episode as a starting point to explore the other creepy animated stories in The Vault of Horror: A Collection of Nightmares.
You might remember this creepy place from the James Bond film “Skyfall.” The sense of foreboding isn’t any less in this Google Street View rendering of the abandoned island. The chilling background music adds to the effect. Make your way through the island with the help of your mouse and learn more about life in an era of rampant coal mining.
You can also explore it from the Google Arts and Culture site. The interesting bit is that it’s just one of the 505 abandoned islands in the Nagasaki Prefecture.
Turn your thirst for cheesy horror into a chance to bump up your trivia knowledge. The above screenshot says it all. So play the quiz and find out if you know your serial hacker from your code hacker.
Don’t forget to check out More Stuff on the site for some more ways to cure your boredom online.
The vote for the ultimate gore website can go to this one if you take it too seriously. After all, who would like to know one’s date of death!
It’s a fun site, and I guess the mechanism behind it takes into account any addictions you have to calculate your death age. The site gives your date of death in neutral, optimistic, and pessimistic modes. So take your pick and satisfy your morbid curiosity.
But if you want to get serious about life, take the assumed date and start living your life to the fullest.
As adults, it takes a lot of convincing to buy into cheesy horror. But kids are naturally drawn to them and enjoy the goosebumps. So let’s end our list with a “horror” site made just for kids.
Scary for Kids might seem like a creepy website for kids. But try to find out if any of the stories, videos, or scary pictures tingle your spine. I couldn’t spot the gore here, so it’s safe to sit with your children in front of the monitor.
Maybe, a storytelling session at night would work better.
Can artificial intelligence generate the best gore in the world? The MIT Media Lab uses algorithms to create scary faces and haunted places from their regular versions. Then, you get to vote on them and generate your special gallery at the end.
The Halloween experiment is a fun way to see AI at work, but maybe it’s also an attempt to see if technology can design “fear.” We think it can.
No time to browse all the gore videos and gory websites? Take a run at these flash horror stories that can still give you the heebie-jeebies. The subreddit holds monthly contests, and you can follow the prompts to submit your own. The most upvoted stories are the winners.
The screenshot above is one of the winning stories.
A Bit of the Cheesy Gore You Can Find on the Web
I decided to stop while I was ahead. These ten gory websites are just a whiff of the gore you can find on the web, and to be frank, these sites are relatively tame. However, the dark side of the web is not for the squeamish.
Some websites wouldn’t have passed muster with the most liberal censor or our family-friendly readership.
It opens the debate on the dangers of sickening gore being left open on the web. There are more than enough creepy sites if your taste is still in cheesy horror and disgusting gore.
