Quote of the Day: Gore

“To me, the best zombie movies aren’t the splatter fests of gore and violence with goofy characters and tongue in cheek antics. Good zombie movies show us how messed up we are, they make us question our station in society… and our society’s station in the world. They show us gore and violence and all that cool stuff too… but there’s always an undercurrent of social commentary and thoughtfulness.” 
― Robert Kirkman

“When one wants to be famous, one has to dive gracefully into rivers of the blood of cannon-blasted bodies.” 
― Comte de Lautréamont

“I didn’t want to be the woman who gave herself over willingly to the first man to notice her. I didn’t want to be the stupid girl in every novel who loved without question and entered relationships that didn’t make sense.” 
― Destinee Hardwick

“And lo, at the moment when she needed it most, she found the force within her. She didn’t find it in time to avoid having her head bitten off, but she sure did die enlightened.” 
― Jeff Mach

“He would have been half-hanged, taken down alive, castrated, his genitals stuffed in his mouth, his stomach slit open, and his intestines taken out and burnt, and his carcase chopped into four quarters.” 
― John Broadbent

“Mere grimness is as easy as grinning; but it requires something to put a handsome face on a story. Narratives become of suspicious merit in proportion as they lean to Newgate-like offenses, particularly of blood and wounds…” 
― Leigh Hunt

“A sign read “Free drinks for billiards competitors only.” Hand-lettered below read “All others will pay.” It was written in blood. I could tell because a red fairy with what looked like black insect wings was writing it at the time, with his own dismembered finger.” 
― Red Tash

“There was a muffled pop, the sound of a small pumpkin exploding in a microwave oven.
Morris cut the wheel to the left and there was another bump as the Biscayne went back into the parking area. He looked in the mirror and saw that Curtis’s head was gone.
Well, no. Not exactly. It was there, but all spread out. Mooshed. No loss of talent in that mess. Morrie thought.” 
― Stephen King

“He had not even done the fledgling courtesy of shredding open a major artery, anointing himself in the viscous gore, and desecrating her body. The order was as flexible as her corpse remained.” 
― Thomm Quackenbush

“When you say you’re a fan of the gore, what do you mean?”
“The all supernatural bunch, love. The scarier the merrier.” 
― Patricia Morais

“I have seen a lot of ugly things as a trainee and as a nurse, but they don’t bother me very much. It’s not that the familiarity hardens one; it is rather that one learns the knack of channelling one’s emotions around the ugly thing.” 
― Theodore Sturgeon

“What are you?’ She asked. He shot her a brief glance and looked away. He stared at the scenery of the pastures and distant rows of trees. She knew he was not going to answer the question. 
In the brightening daylight, she could see that most of the blood on him was restricted to his mouth and hands. It dawned on her that it wasn’t his blood, but the blood of something he had caught and eaten.” 
― Shirley A. Martin

“People are often wary of reading or watching anything in the horror genre because in their minds, it’s just senseless gore, death and violence. Well, I can tell you from avid experience, that’s not what horror is about. The horror genre teaches us that sometimes really bad things happen to really good people, but that hope always prevails in even the darkest of situations. That’s a very important lesson, no matter how frightening you think the teacher is, and to be in the top of her class, all you need to do is to go in with an open mind.” 
― Rebecca McNutt
