can you explain why you like gore? not trying to be rude. just curious (:
Hmmm well really I am not into much real gore unless it’s something medically fascinating or really out of the ordinary. It doesn’t bother me ( I am really quite jaded to all that to be honest) just doesn’t do anything for me either. I LOVE practical effects. My dream is to become an effects artist and throw blood and guts on people for a living and create creatures people can only dream of. There is something about the horrors that we will probably never have to really face that I find captivating and beautiful in a dark way and how film can help us experience those horrors with no real danger. I love watching horror movies and being inspired by how real the make up is, how real the skin seems to tear and split while still upholding the image that it’s struggling to stay intact and knowing that it’s not real. Or the way an actor portrays a man who has no problem chewing off someones face and sinking his teeth into someones flesh while they sit there still screaming. I can’t imagine what it feels like to have that flesh give way and come apart in my mouth but the look of sheer pleasure the cannibal has on his face when he does make me wonder. It’s the magic of horror film that I love and brings that kind of gore to life for me, not the gore it’s self. A part of it may also be that I haven’t been scared of a film since I was 5 and saw Alien so a part of me wants that terror that it can produce.
Also to clarify I love ALL practical effects and want to do more than just horror ( horror is just my favorite obviously haha) Creating the beautiful as well as the dark. :)
Reposting because no one has ever specifically asked me why I liked gore.
