Morbid Curiosity

Ok We all do it, we all crave for it, it is....morbid stuff. Ok so Let's see how deviant and blood thirsty forumgoers are: Do you check every single dubious link and every possible pic some random people throws at you? I for one in my many years in this cesspool of damned souls we call Internet have learned to screen most vile and evil things, those just dont sit in me right. I just can't stand some of the stuff, I dont have famous "Internet stomach" How about You?

While in Mexico, I looked out of a bus window at a pedestrian-auto accident (while covering my son's eyes admonishing him with a "DON'T LOOK"). I knew it would be bad. I was right. I now will go to my grave remembering a crushed skull, bloody bits of brains on pavement, and the victim's mother holding her hand screaming her name. I will never, ever look again.

I stay as far away from gore as I can. I have no interest in looking.

Re: Morbid Curiosity

I dislike gore. Not that I can't stand it: I don't mind gore in movies etc, but real life gore doesn't really appeal to me in any way :)

Re: Morbid Curiosity

You mean morbid in a literal sense? I can watch it fine, it's not very interesting though. Some stuff like horrible diseases and deformities, parasites in sickening places and extreme genital modification does push me near my limit though.

Re: Morbid Curiosity

Pictures and movies I don't have any problems with. It needs to be really morbid before I react, but expiriencing it in real life I think would be totally different. Worst expirience I have had so far is a car accident I drove by (well my parents). I didn't see any actualy humans in the accident, but a burning char and a really sickening smell of burnt flesh.

Yeah, Gore is grisly, but as much as I love sausage, if I had to make it , I would be a vegetarian!

Re: Morbid Curiosity

As far as movies go that have lots of gore I can watch them.

It's the real life grotesque accidents and extensive mutilation on the internet that I would never seek out purposely.

Re: Morbid Curiosity

I stumbled upon a site years ago that had pix and movies of executions, accidents, deformities, you name it. I briefly scanned it for about 5 minutes to see if it was for real, and it was. I've never been back and I feel somewhat tainted by the experience.

Unfortunately I've experienced something simular, and I also felt....disturbed for a while afterwards.

Was it Rotten?
That's the site that I visited, I realized the theme very quickly and left. I wonder if TheNix was referring to this site...

edit: I just had the thought that there are probably sites far worse then the one mentioned... >.<

I've no interest in that stuff any more. I watched/read horror stuff fictional/real when I was a kid but I grew out of it at about 18.

I really cannot remember its name, but it could have been. It was back when I had dial-up, so it must be at least seven years ago. I was doing some research on John Merrick, the elephant man, and I linked into the deformities pages. Very graphic stuff, and to make it worse there was almost a comic, sometimes even sexual, subtext to it. Nasty stuff.

I've no interest in that stuff any more. I watched/read horror stuff fictional/real when I was a kid but I grew out of it at about 18.
My wife reads the most graphic true crime books she can find, she watches a lot of crime non-fiction too. Cannot watch, or read, fiction crime. I've never been able to understand that.

Heh, the good old dialup days... it must've been Rotten then.

What part of Melbourne are you in? I'm in Dandenong, lovely place.

That's why I never went to there. I have no problems with fictional things, like violence in movies, but if it gets too real, I cannot stand it. Do you know the movie Man bites Dog ? It's fictional, but I cannot stand watching a few scenes because they are so disturbingly real.



 
Re: Morbid Curiosity

Reminds me of the video I saw years ago, Faces of Death. I picked it up randomly at the video store (yes, wayyy before even Blockbuster existed) thinking it was some kind of horror film. I still occasionally think about some of that stuff today, with a shudder. Especially the guy being executed in the electric chair with steaming bloody stuff trickling out from under his eye bandages.

Re: Morbid Curiosity

Do see what you've done? Do you? I just spent two hours on rotten.com. I hope you're all happy. :D I've been to that sight before, but it's been a while. Some of the images (not in the gore section) are very neat. There's one of a woman with mulit-colored candy sprinkles covering her body licking a big sucker.
