So I heard some pretty sick stuff about films like Wolf Creek and Saw, along with some stuff about killers and things like that and seriously-how can people enjoy watching gore films? How can people enjoy torturing others? Do many people really get tortured? Because, man I have some sick images in my mind *shudders*

It's alright, we all know prog-heads are pussies.

I enjoy my music chaotic and brutal, therefore I enjoy my movies with plenty of blood and gore.

I'm seeing a connection here.

I don't think torture happens as much now as it used to. It probably is fairly common in certain countries, although I think most European countries and the USA don't OFFICIALLY torture people. Although I think the US still officially "waterboards" people.

I agree with you about films too, how can people find films like Hostel etc. entertaining?

I hate torture/gore movies.
I don't mind a horror film every now and then, but over-the-top gore is just disgusting.
#8
I like action movies sometimes, and comic amounts of gore can be amusing, but I can't stand torture porn like Hostel and whatnot. The US has waterboarded a few people, which is torture. Just ask Christopher Hitchens! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuhJUmR4B6Q

Deep down we are all fascinated with our own death. Tortue must be the worst form to die from. Hence why we are obsessed with morbid thoughts and why we watch these movies.

Prisoners were subjected to other experiments such as:

* being hung upside down to see how long it would take for them to choke to death.[9]
* having air injected into their arteries to determine the time until the onset of embolism.[9]
* having horse urine injected into their kidneys.[9]
* being deprived of food and water to determine the length of time until death.
* being placed into high-pressure chambers until death.
* being exposed to extreme temperatures and developed frostbite to determine how long humans could survive with such an affliction, and to determine the effects of rotting and gangrene on human flesh.[9]
* having experiments performed upon prisoners to determine the relationship between temperature, burns, and human survival.
* being placed into centrifuges and spun until dead.
* having animal blood injected and the effects studied.
* being exposed to lethal doses of x-ray radiation.
* having various chemical weapons tested on prisoners inside gas chambers.
* being injected with sea water to determine if it could be a substitute for saline.

Quote by Myung-trucci
hmm interesting JoshCrawford, but still what is waterboarding?


"Waterboarding is a form of torture that consists of immobilizing a person on their back with the head inclined downward and pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages. Through forced suffocation and inhalation of water, the subject experiences the process of drowning and is made to believe that death is imminent. In contrast to merely submerging the head face-forward, waterboarding almost immediately elicits the gag reflex."

I watched Hostel for the first time the other week.

It's the sickest thing I've ever seen on video.

And not in a good way

I love gore movies, but then again I'm pre-pre-med, so I am not as affected by that stuff as most people.

....Awsome

I like gore movies... but saying that.... I have a pschiatrist so there may be something wrong with me >>

Who was it that carried out that list of "experiments"? I heard they did things like that in Auschwitz to children.

Edit: OK just seen it happened in 731, Jesus I can't comprehend how people can do that to one another.

That's... horrible; so inhumane.

American government still does it claiming it's not torture. I'll try and get you the video of a US civil servant (or it could be a journalist) who bitched about it not being torture and underwent it himself, with full knowledge that he was in no danger.

This isn't the one I was thinking of, but the guy explains it very well, and that soldier said how he felt the "panic" and "being crushed by a red hot coal"and that's from a Marine.

I liked Wolf Creek-It was actually based on a true story which makes it more beleivable than most Horror movies, but no generally I don't like horror movies

I hate movies about torture.

China's pretty brutal when it comes to that stuff as well. Maybe not quite as cruel as Mengele or Unit 731, but it's still awful reading about their methods.

Quote by soulflyV
Speaking of torture, I came across this link just a little while ago:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731#Activities


I read a little about Unit 731 a while ago, but did a lot of reading into it after you posted that link.

I don't think I realised how bad Unit 731 was the first time I read about it, it is absolutely disgusting. It actually makes me lose a lot of faith in humanity and is pretty depressing. I guess that is what extreme Nationalism, Imperialism and depression does to a country though.
