* A few of the more violent and detailed {{Creepypasta}}s can venture into this, and a lot of the poorly-written one tends to ignore biology hard enough to even cross back over into NightmareRetardant.

* ''Film/{{Detention}}'' parodies the genre with the [[ShowWithinAShow Film Within a Film]] ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kC4vJhgJSq0 Cinderhella II: Beauty Scream]]'', which can be roughly described as a teen slasher version of ''Saw'', complete with that series' ridiculous traps and a killer with a similar moralistic attitude. The titular killer forces a teenage girl to dig a red slipper out of her abdomen within two minutes as punishment for [[DeathBySex having premarital sex]], lest her head be blown up with an assortment of buzzsaws and drills.

Sloan, a cheerleader [[FishOutOfTemporalWater from 1992]] who's [[FreakyFridayFlip stuck in her daughter Ione's body]] ([[ItMakesSenseInContext long story]]), is absolutely blown away by the film and how different it is from the slashers she grew up with.

* One of the earliest films to get this reputation was ''Film/WitchfinderGeneral'', which was very loosely based on actual incidents of seventeenth-century witch-hunting in East Anglia and paid unusual attention for the time to the detailed torture and execution of victims.

* Any adaptation of the Sylvia Likens case, which boils down to children raping and torturing another child to death under the guidance of an insane woman. Creator/StephenKing called ''The Girl Next Door'' (probably the most infamous of the films) one of the most disturbing and heart wrenching things he's ever seen.



* Most {{Nazisploitation}}, the probable TropeMaker for that being ''Film/IlsaSheWolfOfTheSS''.
** On a related note, a lot of films about WorldWarII-era Japan, like ''Film/MenBehindTheSun'' and ''Philosophy of a Knife''.



* Certain {{Giallo}} films. Most don't feature gore, just minimal specific incidents of violence which could hardly be classified as torture porn, but some of the most extreme ones (on the borderline with the horror genre) such as Fulci's ''[[Film/DontTortureADuckling Non si sevizia un paperino]] (Don't Torture A Duckling)'' do qualify for this trope.



* A few attempts at BlackComedy torture pornos include ''Otis, Neighbor'' and ''Film/TheLovedOnes''.



* The slew of 1970s films centered around witch persecution (no doubt inspired by 1968's controversially torture-filled ''Film/WitchfinderGeneral'') such as ''Mark of the Devil'' and ''The Bloody Judge'' (which star Creator/ChristopherLee, who repeatedly butted heads with the director over the unsavory content, refused to watch after it was finished).



* In Australia during the 1960s and early 1970s, a quite strange genre of pulp fiction flourished and then suddenly died away, in the form of short novellas (around 128 pages each, or occasionally slightly longer) which were mainly set during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, and focused on the experiences of prisoners-of-war or others who opposed the Japanese or Nazis in any way. The novels focused on incidents such as interrogation and torture of these prisoners, their attempts to escape, and such matters -- and the ill-treatment and torture of the prisoners was focused on in great detail. Often women were the victims (also of sexual abuse), and ways were devised of bringing them into what you would expect to be mainly a male environment.\\
\\
Many of these novels were written under the names "John Slater" and "Jim Kent", although many of the works are believed to be the work of one Ray Slattery, who also published other war-related work under his own name; the covers had lurid covers of torture scenes, and had titles like ''Torture Road'', ''Women of Ravensbruck'', ''Pleasure Camp'', and so on in endless permutations. A few of the novels were outside the war setting but came up with other settings in which similar scenes could occur, such as white women being sold into slavery in Middle-Eastern countries (''Sold for Pleasure'').\\
\\
For a while, the books could be found quite easily in used bookshops, and especially in various kinds of charity shops in Australia, but then they became quite rare and expense. Some suspect that one reason why the books became rare was that the lurid covers and titles offended the conservative sensibilities of the older women who often worked in these charity shops, and so they got tossed out in the rubbish. Over time, the books went from costing sometimes only a few cents each to the current situation where, if you find one, it could easily cost you $20 or $30, or even much more.
* The above sounds like it might have been a product of the British pulp fiction publishers, ''Creator/NewEnglishLibrary'', who specialised in this sort of stuff. Reasons for the demise of this publisher are given on the relevant works page; suffice it to say the NEL got the nickname of ''Nasty, Expliict and Lurid'' for its emphasis on graphic and gratuiotous material.
