Gore : All The Best Free Flash Games Relating To Gore
In many British or Scandinavian cultures, the word gore (it can be spelt in different ways) refers to something dirty and disgusting. Gore is also the name given to a sub-category of horror films in which mutilation is explicitly represented. In these kind of films, blood is omnipresent, it is almost a character of the movie. The aim of these films can be making laugh the audience, or disgust it.
Literally nicknamed the father of gore, the American Herschell Gordon Lewis was the first one directing a movie which was told to be gore. Released in 1963, the movie Blood Feast defined the bases of this style, and the movie was such a hit, that it was the starting point of the development of the gore in the 70\'s and 80\'s. These two decades were the golden age of this kind of cinema.
Gore movies can be parodies or serious films, but always have the same bases, that is to say, a very basic scenario, caricatural characters, and a lot of blood. Sometimes, under this amount of blood, a more or less relevant critic of the society can be found.
