He'd had a previous bad run-in with an HMO over abdominal pain and flu-like symptoms, to which he was essentially sent home. His appendix later burst.

  5. Mr. Hands

    Otherwise known as the Enumclaw horse sex case, this clip features no blood and gore – but definitely shock. It centers on the sexual exploits of Kenneth Pinyan. Kenneth Pinyan had previously videotaped his occasional trysts with animals and distributed them under the name of Mr. Hands.

  7. 2 Girls, 1 Cup

    Only one minute in length, this trailer to the scat-porn film, Hungry Bitches, doesn’t wait long to get straight to the point. It’s the brainchild of Brazilian distributor Marco Fiorito, who describes himself as a “compulsive fetishist.” Having started his production exploits in the foot fetish niche, he soon decided to turn to the eating of feces; coprophagia.

  9. 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick - Luka Rocco Magnotta

    Born Eric Clinton Newman, occasionally using the alias Vladimir Romanov and many others, Luka Magnotta is more notoriously known as the killer in 1 Lunatic, 1 Ice Pick. Even before the infamous video for which he is known, he was rumored to be the deranged killer in at least two other videos.
  10. The Heart-Wrenching Executions of 3 Young Gulf Cartel Members by Los Zetas

    In early 2012, video surfaced of three younger-than-usual cartel members meeting their grisly ends. These three young men were members of Cartel del Golfo – or The Gulf Cartel. Their captors and executioners were members of Los Zetas – or The Zs. Ironically, Los Zetas started out in 1999 as essentially the “weaponized” sect of The Gulf Cartel and are former elite members of the Mexican Army. This partnership lasted until 2010.

  12. Jeremy Lusk Dies in Tragic Motocross Freestyling Accident

    Let me start by saying that mere participation in freestyle motocross takes nerves of steel. Add to that the myriad new tricks popping up and the ever-present desire for riders to one-up their competition, and you get even more jaw-dropping and extremely dangerous moves.
  13. The Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs - aka 2 Guys, 1 Hammer - aka 3 Guys, 1 Hammer

    Snuff films, which the majority of people don’t believe actually exist, are a “genre” of films depicting death specifically for financial gain. This one stops just short of that. These young men did this for the sheer spectacle of it.

  15. The Dagestan Massacre

    This one is perhaps one of the most memorable and hardest-to-watch to many who follow the shock/gore genre. This fact is likely largely in part because of its length – almost 17 minutes – and the nonchalant way in which the captors/executioners carry out their acts.
