n.— «Dubbed gore pornography, or gorno for short, this sickening new sub-genre depicts torture, suffering and drawn-out death that tests the staying power of audiences as much as the victims. Sex has nothing to do with it, but, like porn, it’s all about visual thrills. It’s all about the gore—the more gruelling the better.» —“Shock horror” by Shannon Harvey PerthNow (Australia) Apr. 7, 2007. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
