    Default Can you eat after watching something gross? Gore?

    Anything of that nature usually gets my stomach upset. I'm not even afraid to admit that I'm a wuss when it comes to gory movies. Legs being bitten off, arms being cut off, brains being eaten, heads being decapitated, watching silence of the lambs, (Which wasn't as bad as it's sequels.)

    I usually think that gory movies are hilarious but my stomach doesn't.

    I'm wondering if there is a correlation between this and Nfs. My dad is an Sfp and he never has a problem with eating while watching gory crap on television. Then again, he has eaten grubs before, which makes my stomach feel fairly queasy even thinking about it.

    No way. Most of the time I can't even look. And sound effects are a whole other horror. I just chalk it up to having very visceral reactions.

    It's quite common for people to eat cooked gore these days.

    Even if you had the entire forum line up and give you a survey with their type and their "gore preference", it wouldn't indicate anything other than you wasting a bunch of peoples' time to reinforce a useless, ignorant stereotype.

    Not a stereotype. It's an observation I've had. Move along and stop being picky about posts.

    I am like your SFP dad in that I can sit and eat while watching horror movies. I love horror movies, though, have since childhood, I just think like whatever...the only thing that even bothers me is "torture porn" and that's because of the suffering portrayed, not because of the gory special effects.

    However, things like shit and vomit IRL make me not want to eat, and so can the idea of bugs being in my food, stuff like that.

    I really have a huge imagination so I tend to start thinking that perhaps bones will rise through my soup, or dead flesh will be in my salad, lol. Then I have to watch something else to distract me, like a cooking show or comedy etc. Bug in food really makes me not want food for a while because when I was younger, my parents were very poor and couldn't afford a nice house, or an exterminator.

    I would actually find fleas in the cereal boxes and freak out so bad, but my mom would try to make me eat it anyway because it's all we had, so I've been very traumatized since I was little regarding bugs.

    I have a vivid imagination but it's just that horror doesn't bother me. I love horror, I actually like the atmosphere of some horror movies and think it's cool. I used to wish there would be ghosts in my house. As a teenager I was one of those kids fascinated by blood. Blood has never bothered me, but I think shit is like the most disgusting thing in the world.

    I also know a lot about special effects, not just because of my own interest in horror, but because my ex is a serious horror person, like I know how they make some of the stuff look real, etc. I also had a friend in high school who became a horror make-up artist, he made me up like Regan from the Exorcist once (I WAS SO EXCITED) ...he like lives in England now or something.

    I actually liked to taste my own blood when I was little >.> which is probably really gross but I liked how it tasted.
    The liquid latex and toilet paper effect is my favorite. I think possibly you could also use elmer's glue for it, not sure.

    Maybe my stomach is just very weak. I remember eating a piece of steak strip when I was 9 and vomiting for some reason. I projectile vomited. It was weird. I ate something very very salty and it was like my body was automatically rejecting it. I still don't know wtf I ate that made me do that and it hasn't happened since.
