Thank you for your replies and I agree 100 percent with those that said it does depend on the film and the plot but if Gore is the main focus as in films like "Gore Gore Girls" or "Suicide Club" both not really watchable movies in my opinion I would disagree.
Did you really hate the fact that the original TCM had no gore?
Look at Silence of the Lambs except for this scene here there was no gore at all and this is a film that won 5 Oscars.
Has anyone watched classic horror? they never needed any gore, when there ever was a graphic scene back then they would just switch to another scene and let your imagination determine what happened.
One of the goriest clips in cinema is this scene here from Alien and that in my opinnion was a perfect time to both shock the audience and gross them out.
Another example is "The Thing" who can forget the
dog scene or Blood Test scene this is a film that used the gore like it should.
Its still my opinnion you don't need gore to make horror, you need horror to make gore!
