In response to a conversation I was having with orcaflotta, who writes the blog Thar She Blows!, I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite shock sites that just so happen to be on the clearnet.
In fact, this seems to be the type of content that people expect to find on the dark web, and yet I don’t run into it on the dark web very much. Maybe I just haven’t looked hard enough?
In some previous posts, I’ve mentioned the site riGOREmortis, which is my current favorite. Why? Well, for one, it seems to have a cool community, and also, they have some truly disturbing images there.
For instance, one of the current popular images is entitled “Young Woman Murdered and Hacked Up in the Jungle.” Now, I don’t want you to get the idea that I’m some kind of psychopath (in spite of my travels on the dark web) – I’m just fascinated with mortality, and being exposed to disturbing things helps me confront that.
According to its about page, the site was started by former admins at Best Gore, due to some kind of drama.
The site has such categories as “Murder,” “Accidents,” “Disease,” etc. It’s the first such site that I’ve actually become a member of, as a matter of fact. If gore and disturbing images are your type of thing, go on over and check it out.
Speaking of Best Gore, I still think it’s one of the better gore sites as well (drama or no drama). Like riGOREmortis, it has numerous categories of gory images and videos: Animal Encounters, Beheading, Bloody Injuries, Execution, and…Chill Out Videos? I haven’t clicked on that one yet, but it doesn’t sound so disturbing. I should prepare to be horrified, shouldn’t I?
Like these other sites, Best Gore takes somewhat of a political stance on its existence:
Best Gore is a reality news website which reports on real life events which are of the interest to the public. Best Gore was founded on the fundamental principle that freedom of expression, freedom of the press and the right of the public to be informed are fundamental and necessary conditions for the realization of the principles of transparency and accountability that are, in turn, essential for the promotion and protection of all human rights in a democratic society.
Though I’m really a nice guy, I tend to agree with this. I feel as though there’s a lot of internet censorship going on right now, so sites like this are important. Just because you censor something, that doesn’t mean it’s going to go away.
The YNC has a mixture of your typical gore/death pictures and videos, along with some nude/camgirl type content.
What types of gore, you ask? A few examples: “Two Sick Fucks Torture and Waterboard Woman,” “Old Man Beaten in the Street for Sending Young Girl Explicit Photos,” and “Cop Charged with Manslaughter for Shooting Unarmed Mother in the Head.” G-rated stuff, right?
No, seriously – I would never expect to find anything resembling Disney on any of these sites. The YNC also has a forum where you can make friends with fellow goreheads.
Deathtube, as opposed to the other gore sites here, is a little outdated. Its most recent post is from October 6, 2017 (as you can see in the screenshot, footage of the Las Vegas shootings).
I attempted to look at some of its archives, and those seemed to be missing or miscoded as well. Those of you who think gore sites are sick will probably be happy that this one is down, but if you’re actually interested in this, I can’t recommend this particular site.
I would show a screenshot of the content this site, but like I said before, I try to keep this blog semi-SFW. Its URL is Crazy Shit, if you want to check it out.
As its title implies, it has many categories of gore, albeit more in the “bizarre” range. To give you some idea of what you might find there, here are a few samples: “So That’s What Keeping a Sex Slave Looks Like,” “My Man, It’s Time to See a Doctor or a Veterinarian,” and “Seriously?! Girl Slices Artery Open and Calls It ‘Art.'”
As opposed to the other gore sites, it has kind of a snarky, sarcastic edge to it as well. If you’re into this kind of thing, I recommend giving it a visit.
Documenting Reality is very similar to the other sites here, albeit with less NSFW material on the front page. Categories include “Death Pictures,” “Human Deformities and Medical Problems,” “Real Car Crash & Accident Videos,” “True Crime Case Files & Death Investigations,” and “Conspiracy Theories & The Paranormal.”
I would say that the paranormal and mystery sections are what differentiate this site from the other gore sites – it’s not just about shock, but people are actually interested in solving these strange mysteries and such. Give it a visit at Documenting Reality
Like the other sites here, Goregrish has photos and videos of things like ISIS killings, murders, genocide, executions, suicide, and accidents. What more could you want?
Plus, like the other sites, there’s a forum where you can socialize with your fellow gorriers. As to what differentiates it from the others, I can’t tell at first glance, but I think it would be the community.
In that regard, it’s a lot like riGOREmortis and some of the other very active sites. For instance, it features groups like “Morbid Mania,” “Cute Dead Bitches,” and “Goregrish Chicks Only!” Sounds like a good place to spend my Sundays. Check it out at Goregrish.
Anyway – I think I’ve had my fill of death for the day. Time for lunch!
