Torture porn isn't even a genre. It's a term the media came up with to bash films that rely on gore/kill scenes over story. The general consensus is that the films offer kill scenes like porn film offer cumshots, with absolutely nothing of value in between. The only reason a 'plot' in a porn exists is to get to the next sex scene. Whereas in these shitty modern horror films it's to get to the next gore scene.

For that reason I'd say Hostel isn't really torture porn as it doesn't operate in that way (even if I don't like the film). And really films like that existed heavily since the 80s. What are slasher movies but torture porn? They have absolutely no substance, are poorly made and offer nothing but a cool kill scene every now and again.

This is pretty much what I said on the previous page. However the movies I suggested do contain both torture and porn.

I think the media have definitely seen the films as they're spot on about how weak and substenceless these films are. The term torture porn doesn't refer to the films having a blend of sex and violence (which many seem to think it does).

Though honestly I doubt the sort of critics that came up with the term have ever seen the sort of films you're talking about. I think they'd give up on horror altogether if they did. And who could blame them.

After seeing Tumbling Doll of Flesh I very nearly gave up on life not because it shocked but because....... How can people enjoy this shite? same with August Underground absolutely fucking terrible.

you guys are right on the whole torture porn thing, but i think that glow was trying to say shes into movies with blood guts and sex, sometimes played out in the same time. at least if he's referring to films like hostel. and, hostel pales in comparison as far as shock value goes to many older flicks, so all he needs to do is show her some of those that we've already listed and it should be problem solved.
