{{Hell}} can be depicted in many different ways. From the classic FireAndBrimstoneHell, where sinners burn for eternity, to a more [[CirclesOfHell organized structure]] with different sins punished in different ways, sometimes going all the way to [[IronicHell torments personalized to the individual]]. Then there's this [[NauseaFuel decidedly]] [[{{Squick}} squicky]] version.

This kind of Hell is like being [[WombLevel inside a living being]], with walls of flesh and structures like organs. This is a fairly recent phenomenon which plays upon the PrimalFear of being eaten and the idea that EvilIsVisceral rather than ancient mythologies, but the idea of the entrance to Hell being an actual mouth that would swallow the damned is very much older than the use of the word "hellmouth" in [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer certain 90's TV shows]]. (See this [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/hellmouth/yukon6/hellmouth6.jpg Hellmouth]] image from the MiddleAges.)

[[AC:{{Anime}} And {{Manga}}]]
* The depiction of the Nexus from ''{{Berserk}}'', where Guts and the Hawks wind up when Griffith calls the Godhand during the Eclipse, is very much one of these.
* Inspired by the DivineComedy, ''SaintSeiya'''s version of Hell is [[CirclesOfHell structured]] in several locations or "Prisons". The Sixth Prison is a lake of boiling blood, whereas those who sin of greed are devoured by Cerberus in the Third Prison.
* ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' has the endless blood-filled PocketDimension inside Gluttony's stomach.

* While it does have a sky and thus isn't as claustrophobic as most of the examples here, the terrain in the hellish shard-plane of Grixis in ''MagicTheGathering'' is said to be made of bones and decaying flesh. Even its cities are referred to as "necropoli."
** Old Phyrexia was a more straight example, complete with [[DivineComedy nine spheres]].

* In "Webcomic/BioApocalypse" the entire planet becomes this due to an experiment gone wrong.
* In ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}, the purgatorial dimension of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent "The Others"]] resembles this in its true form. Though they usually mask it with whatever time period or genre setting fits their momentary fancy.

* ''TheFrighteners'' showed Hell to be the bowels of a gigantic eldritch worm filled with tentacles.

* While Inferno in Dante's ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' was mostly the more traditional IronicHell, murderers and tyrants are punished by immersion in Phlegethon, a river of boiling blood, and Judas, Brutus, and Cassius were given the special privilege of being Satan's personal chew toys. And we're not speaking figuratively. He has all three of them in his mouths and is chewing on them for eternity.
** Said final section of hell is also frozen over. [[CueTheFlyingPigs No sign of flying pigs, however]].
* In the third book of the ''Literature/{{Silverwing}}'' series, the bat version of the afterlife is relatively nice. However, those who especially displease the god of the underworld, Cama Zotz, spend the rest of eternity in his digestive system.
* Played with slightly In Clive Barker's ''{{Imajica}}'', as it's like being inside a *dead* being. The First Dominion (where the souls of the dead travel) [[spoiler: is the physical embodiment of the god Hapexamendios, and when he dies, his flesh—i.e. the entire universe—begins to rot with expectedly squicky results.]]
* In ''{{Literature/Doom}}'', flesh walls and organs are a favorite form of "reworking" the aliens make to the facilities.
* In PiersAnthony's ''Tarot'' trilogy, Brother Paul and the others involved in the Quest are taken to Hell and their souls are tried by the Devil. One by one they are eaten alive by Satan - although he castrates Paul first. Even though he knows this is only a hallucination, a virtual reality brought on by the planet, he is taken aback to regain consciousness inside an office in the Satanic bureaucracy - which he also knows is in some way inside Satan. after an unpleasant interview, he is then exited from Satan's body by the nearest available orifice...

* The descriptions of Hell on ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' vary, [[UnreliableNarrator depending upon]] [[MindScrew who's describing it]]. However, in the second season, one demon [[spoiler: Meg, who's currently possessing Sam,]] describes it as "a prison made of bone and flesh and blood and fear."

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYnG8QhmDYA Hell's Forecast]] by the Music/InsaneClownPosse tells the story of a man(portrayed by Violent J) waking up to discover that all of his friends are dead, and that outside the sky is red and raining corpses into his ghetto. The corpses are all described as "naked and mangled, most withered for days" and their faces are twisted in expressions of horror and pain. J, frightened and confused, tries to retreat from the visceral storm, only to find that he has actually died and is in Hell.

* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' ''PlaneScape'' multiverse, some layers of the abyss are like this. [[http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog/gh_abyss_planes.html Zegrentilandib]]
--> "This plane is sentient, and Prime-like, but with fleshy ground"
** Layer six of the Nine Hells of Baator is Malbolge, formerly a boring place of boulders rolling down an eternal slope, ruled by the Hag Countess, who wasn't even a real devil. Then came the ''Fiendish Codex II'', when the Countess was replaced by Glasya ([[DaddysLittleVillain daughter of Asmodeus himself]]), who did some remodeling. Now Malbolge is largely made up of its former ruler and sports distinctly fleshy terrain, with tall oily hairs instead of forests, lakes of bile and viscera, and ivory towers that used to be fingers or ribs. Special mention must also be made of a great mound at the layer's center called [[WombLevel the Birthing Pit]].
** Then there's the realm of Torog, the King Who Crawls, god of imprisonment and torture. His capital city, as it were, is Gargash, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin the Living Torture Den]]. The reason it looks so horrible is that it's ''literally'' the not-quite-corpse of the ancient primordial that crippled and cursed Torog in the first place. It's "tended to" by an army of Wrackspawn, themselves the twisted not-angel-but-not-demon remnants of Torog's other victims, who are eternally hacking, destroying and reshaping the entire city-sized horror simply so that Gargash doesn't regenerate enough to let it ''[[SealedEvilInACan wake back up]]''.
* Most parts of Malfeas, the Demon City, in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'' don't look organic, but the place is nevertheless made of Malfeas, the fallen king of the Primordials. The ancient Exalted mutilated him, turned his planet-sized body inside out, and stuffed the world-bodies of all the other defeated Primordials inside of him. You can still find their world-bodies in there, including Cecelyne the Infinite Desert. Her body is imprisoned inside Malfeas, and ''his'' body is [[AlienGeometries imprisoned inside her]]. Most of the Primordials' bodies don't look like the innards of an animal, but that's just because they're inhuman {{Eldritch Abomination}}s who far predate the invention of things like animals.

* ''VideoGame/ArcTheLad: [[VideoGame/ArcTheLadTwilightOfTheSpirits Twilight of the Spirits]]'' has a handful of later battles in such a place.
* The Queen of Hearts's castle in ''Videogame/AliceMadnessReturns''.
* The first ''DevilMayCry'' takes Dante to the Underworld near the end of the game, which is very much this. It's quite creepy, though the music that's playing more than makes up for it.
* A lot of the levels set in Hell from ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Doom II]]'' are like this. As well as parts of ''[[VideoGame/{{Doom}} Doom 3]]''.
* The original ''VideoGame/NexusWar'' had two Evil planes, one on the back of one of the pantheon of gods, and the second within the body of said god. It's not a pretty sight. The sequel replaced the second plane with a maddening [[AlienGeometries maze crawl]] through that god's ''mind''.
* The Hell level in ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' is distinctly covered in gore.
* The computer game ''VideoGame/AncientEvil'' has a variant--the walls of Hell are made of what seem to be human flesh and bone, with a pond forming from the blood.
* ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland'' features such a setting in the caves beneath Monkey Island, referred to [[ContinuityNod in a later game]] as "The Caverns of Meat."
* While not strictly "Hell" in the traditional sense, the pain elemental Chzo (a.k.a. "the King") from the ''VideoGame/ChzoMythos'' games is not so much an entity as an entire hellish dimension, a labyrinth of fleshy tunnels from which there is no escape. That, FYI, [[FateWorseThanDeath includes death]]: Chzo feeds off of suffering, and he not only tortures his prisoners into becoming mindless, mutilated slaves, but he [[AndIMustScream keeps them alive for all eternity]].
* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', the "natural" dungeons inside the Oblivion Gates have a distinct organic drift, although not actually Hell, while the buildings are more similar to AlienGeometries.
** The Elder Scrolls series in general features the daemonic realm of Coldharbour, a ruined parody of the real world where every surface is covered in blood and excrement. The smell alone would kill you, were the air not so cold.
* The DarkWorld in ''VideoGame/SilentHill3'' and ''The Room''. Naturally, it's ''very'' symbolic.
* The Danger Zone in ''VideoGame/LegendaryWings''.
* Gluttony in ''VideoGame/DantesInferno''.
* The [[BonusDungeon Claret Hollows]] in ''VideoGame/EtrianOdyssey''.
* The Domain of Pain in ''GuildWars''.
** Also the Depths of Madness which is a blood stained mountain region.
* The Womb in VideoGame/TheBindingOfIsaac.
* Hell in the first ''{{VideoGame/Diablo}}'' consisted of what seems to be bony walls filled with blood. The Nest in ''Hellfire'' was even more organic, but less infernal.
** {{Averted|Trope}} in ''Diablo II'', where some parts of Hell look like [[FloatingContinent islands floating in the void]]. Other areas have the classic rivers of flame.
** ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' plays it in-between, with hell consisting of a dry, bony landscape paved with what turns out to be the skin of flayed demons.
* While not a straight example as he's not in an actual hell, the main protagonist of the image provider ''VisualNovel/SayaNoUta'' sees everything and ''everyone'' in "gore-o-vision" after strong head trauma. Predictably, this starts to eat away at his sanity, until he meets a young girl who looks perfectly normal despite everybody else looking to him like horrible fleshy monsters...
* [[TheVeryDefinitelyFinalDungeon Infinity]] from ''BreathOfFireII'' is the game's Hell analogue where [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathevans]] and his demon horde are {{sealed|EvilInACan}}, and is completely made out of ''pulsating flesh''.
* In ''Holy Diver'', the second stage is titled "Zoumotsu Zigoku," which roughly translates to "entrails hell."
* In ''[[VideoGame/HeroesOfMightAndMagic Might and Magic: Heroes VI]]'', several structures associated with the Inferno faction and Sheogh, the demon's prison dimension, appear to be composed of flesh.
* One of the endings of TheBardsTale is preceded by a scene in a dark void on top of a platform of flesh while blood rains from above.
* The ultimate punishment for the gluttonous in ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'' has them sewn into the intestines of an archdemon, with a tube connecting their mouths to their neighbor's stomachs. Their revulsion at the meals consumed by their host causes an endless chain-reaction of vomiting, and structure description is even interrupted by the narrator getting sick. And you thought ''Film/TheHumanCentipede'' was unpleasant.
* Domains in ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'' are dimensional distortions created by demons to serve as bases that impinge on the real world. They mostly consist of masses of fused flesh and AlienGeometries coexisting uneasily. Once you're trapped in one, the only way to escape is to kill the demon who made the Domain.
* As of version 1.2 of ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', worlds in the game may spawn with an alternative to the Corruption, the Crimson. It's mechanically the same thing, but new, blood-and-viscera-themed monsters are running around, Shadow Orbs are replaced with Demon Hearts, and Demonite ore is replaced with Crimtane.
* The "[[PlanetHeck Heck]]" biome in ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' consists mostly of flesh blocks, brain blocks, and "plants" that resemble organs that drop flesh when harvested. The Heck objects (Altars, Chests, lights etc) are also made of flesh.

* ''Webcomic/{{Jack|DavidHopkins}}'' has all kinds of hell, but Drip's lair certainly fits this trope, the entire landscape made up of the bodies of those guilty of the sin of Lust.
* The [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=003959 Land of Pulse and Haze]] in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''.
* Vast swathes of the BlackBugRoom that is [[{{Kagerou}} Kano Jurgen's mind]] comprise cavernous rooms made of red, lumpy, veiny flesh. The doors to some of these are even [[http://www.electric-manga.com/22/26.html labeled]] [[http://www.electric-manga.com/22/28.html for your]] [[http://www.kagerou.org/46/05.html convenience]].
* DemonEater might qualify, although it's ambiguous whether this actually Hell or merely another dimension with an utterly bizarre ecosystem. So far at least we've never seen any humans there, alive or dead.
* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheBlackDog'', probably the closest trope we have to what Rhoda saw of [[http://orderoftheblackdog.com/comic.php?pid=20130607 the astral plane]].

* ''OrionsArm'': The Queen of Pain.
* The NESGodzillaCreepypasta includes some truly nightmarish versions of this in Zenith.
