->''"In her absolutely splendid novel'' Literature/AlifTheUnseen'', G. Willow Wilson has a character ask whether a given book counts as eastern literature. In reply, Vikram the Vampire says, “There is a very simple test. Is it about bored, tired people having sex?” When the character confirms that the book does, Vikram proclaims it western literature. It’s terribly clever, but omits a key subgenre: bored, tired people being terribly violent."''

Any work which gives heavy, focused attention to ColdBloodedTorture and/or mutilation of someone. The point usually isn't to show how wrong it is, but to disgust the audience while also giving them some visceral thrills. Thus, works will give lots of details (whether [[ToThePain written, verbal]], or [[{{Gorn}} visual]]) of the torture.

The term is usually associated with popular HorrorFilms from the 2000s; it was [[TropeNamers coined]] in 2006 by film critic David Edelstein to [[http://nymag.com/movies/features/15622/ describe]] films like ''Film/{{Hostel}}'', ''Film/SawI'', ''Film/TheDevilsRejects'', and ''Film/WolfCreek''. However, it can be found in older {{Exploitation Film}}s, books, comics, plays, and more, as long as seeing or reading about people suffering slow, agonizing, torturous deaths is the point of the work.

Not to be confused with hardcore BDSM (since the torture there is more playing around), nor finding torture to be FetishFuel (although some suspect some of these films invoke that). However, with that in mind, some films have indeed combined graphic violence and pornography, and have thus become notorious for it.

A SisterTrope to {{Gorn}}, MutilationInterrogation (and often overlaps with both), {{Cuckold}} (the emotional equivalent). Genres that more often than not center around this include {{Nazisploitation}} and RapeAndRevenge.



* The genre is parodied in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwviHqr20y4 a commercial]] for Woolite fabric softener directed by Music/RobZombie.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/FrankenFran'': In one episode Fran (unknowingly) takes part in a torture porn movie. When she realizes what she took part in (and that it involved an actor playing her creator), she punishes the director appropriately.
* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' subverts this when [[spoiler: Yamori tortures Kaneki]]. While the physical torture isn't explicitly shown, it's very clear what Yamori is doing to him.
** The anime, however, plays it closer to straight, complete with raw, bloody toes, [[spoiler: Kaneki's]] agonized screaming, and buckets of his blood.

* The first issue of the ''ComicBook/HackSlash'' ongoing series had Cassie being captured and mutilated by a torture porn-inspired slasher named Doctor Gross.
* ''ComicBook/{{Crossed}}'', which has most of humanity being infected by a "rape-murder-insanity" virus. Of special note are the story-arcs ''Psychopath'' and ''Family Values''.
* ''ComicBook/ThePunisherMAX'' one-shot ''Naked Kill'' has Frank taking on a company creating {{Snuff Film}}s.
--> '''The Punisher:''' Another day, another nest of scumbags. Got a street tip about a bunch of mooks on the distribution end of a torture porn ring. Real torture. Nothing Hollywood about it. Sure enough, bunch of jerkoffs watching women get beaten. Raped... Ruined. Makes me embarrassed to even have a dick.
* Parodied in ''ComicBook/TheMultiversity'', in which the mass villainous team-up of all the alternate versions of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Dr. Sivana]] includes a DarkerAndEdgier "depraved serial killer" Sivana. He wears a Hannibal Lector mask, and his constant brandishing of rusty surgical instruments and ranting about how he wants to torture the young Marvels to death [[EvenEvilHasStandards creeps the other Sivanas out]].

[[folder:Fan Fiction]]
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom, particularly the brony community, is notorious for producing {{dark fic}}s that dive straight into this trope.
** ''FanFic/{{Cupcakes}}'', an infamous fanfic about Pinkie Pie torturing and killing Rainbow Dash, helped popularize this trend. Most of the below-listed ''MLP'' fics were arguably inspired, at least in part, by ''Cupcakes''.
** ''FanFic/PagesOfHarmony'' is made of this trope.
** ''FanFic/CheerileesGarden'' takes this to disturbingly graphic levels. [[spoiler: Sixteen times]].
** ''FanFic/FalloutEquestriaProjectHorizons'' often dips into this, with lovingly-detailed first person narrated scenes of torture, mutilation, rape, and BodyHorror.
** ''FanFic/{{Pattycakes}}'' as well.
** ''120 Days of Blueblood'', a ''MLP'' version of the notorious ''120 Days of Sodom'' (see Film and Literature).
* ''[[FanFic/BloomingMoonChronicles Because Love Conquers All]]'', where Luna and her husband, [[OriginalCharacter Scrivener Blooms]], brutally torture Applejack and Rainbow Dash. In Dash's case, they brainwash him (yes, Dash is male in this story) into murdering Applejack.
* ''Reprise'', the prequel to ''{{Fanfic/Hivefled}}'', is explicitly described as torture porn by the author. Uhh, somewhat more literal than most examples, [[RapeAsDrama all]] [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence things]] [[VillainousIncest considered]].
* The notorious ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' fanfic ''Celebrian'', which speculates on what the Orcs may have done to Celebrian to traumatise her so much in unbelievably obsessive and physically-implausible detail. It's commonly used as a challenge fic to see how much you can read in one sitting before, depending on your level of sensitivity, being [[{{Squick}} squicked]] out or [[IkeaErotica bored]] into submission.
* [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6456401/12/Rise-Against Chapter 12 of Rise Against]] dips into this, spending most of its time as a graphic torture scene. As for who's being tortured? [[Franchise/{{Kirby}} Meta Knight]]. Also, [[DarkFic the fic]] is currently on hiatus, and that's the most recently posted chapter.
* Episode 67 of ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' is this trope, inflicted on Chris and Cosmo. [[{{Squick}} With emphasis]] [[BrainBleach on the "porn."]]
* A series of stories featuring heavy scenes of torture written by The Dark Ranger and posted to Usenet in the 1990's.
** ''Agony In Pink'' featuring the torture, rape and mutilation [[spoiler: and death by torture]] of Kimberly, the Pink Ranger, by Lord Zedd and Tortura, a specially created Main/TortureTechnician in The Power Rangers universe. This one was bad enough to single-handedly spark a moral panic over online pornography in Australia.
** ''Agony In Pink 2 - A New Ending'' another Power Rangers fic featuring the torture, rape, mutilation [[spoiler: and death by torture]] of Kimberly the Pink Ranger by Rita, Lord Zedd [[spoiler: and her friend Kat]].
** ''Agony In Yellow'' featuring the torture and mutilation of Ashley, the Yellow Ranger by Astronema of The Power Rangers universe. [[spoiler: Her friends put out of her misery through a Main/MercyKill. ]]
** ''Suffering Scully'' featuring the interrogation, torture and rape of Dana Scully from the X-Files universe. [[spoiler: In the story she is broken through the use of Main/ElectricTorture]].
** ''Interrogation of Leia'' featuring the interrogation, rape, torture, mutilation [[spoiler: and death by torture]] of Princess Leia by Darth Vader and General Largo in the Star Wars universe. [[spoiler: She is broken early in the story through the use of a dentist's drill.]]
** ''Holly's Home Invasion'' featuring the home invasion and torture of a woman by a gang of women.

* ''Film/CannibalHolocaust'' contained scenes that were believable enough, at the time, to result in the arrest of the director, foreshadowing Creator/CharlieSheen's snuff film fears by about twenty years. Includes [[spoiler: rape with a foreign object followed by bludgeoning of the victim]], dissection, [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]] (of course), and an incredibly well-designed [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice impalement]] scene which still is occasionally posted online as a real occurrence. To make it worse, all the animals that died in the movie were actually killed, leading to the "No Animals Were Harmed In the Making of this Film" disclaimer at the end of every movie; and the director made all the cast sign contracts to keep out of public sight and take no new work for a year to help sell the illusion that the film was genuine; the director in fact had to bring the actors onto a talk show to prove that he hadn't actually killed them during filming.
* ''Film/{{Captivity}}''. Chiefly notorious for its [[http://web.archive.org/web/20081208024154/http://articles.latimes.com/2007/mar/18/local/me-lopez18 incredibly tasteless marketing campaign]], which nakedly appealed to people who might want to watch a real-life snuff movie, and led Creator/JossWhedon and Jill Soloway to campaign for the film to be re-rated. Its critical and commercial failure ended up killing off the genre in mainstream cinema releases, and did lasting damage to the careers of both its [[StarDerailingRole star]] Elisha Cuthbert and [[CreatorKiller director]] Roland Joffe.
* ''Film/{{Carver}}'', which is about a hillbilly SnuffFilm maker prone to mutilating some of his victims through means that include pliers to the balls, or a nail hammered into a bodypart, then wrenched out and hammered in again.
* ''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.
* ''Film/GoodbyeUncleTom'', an Italian {{Mondo}} film that provides an extensive catalogue of the horrors of slavery in the United States and practically revels in the exploitation, humiliation, and torture.
* The two first films from the ''The Guinea Pig Collection''; ''Devil's Experiment'' and ''Flower Of Flesh and Blood'', the latter of which was mistaken for a real SnuffFilm by Creator/CharlieSheen.
* The ''Franchise/{{Hellraiser}}'' films, which feature the hedonistic, extremely sadomasochistic Cenobites, hellbound humans who have AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence and, if summoned, return to torture and kill their victims.
* ''Film/{{Hostel}}'' and its sequels, in which tourists (in [[{{Ruritania}} Eastern Europe]] in the first two films, in UsefulNotes/LasVegas in the third) are kidnapped to be tortured to death by rich sadists.
* ''Film/HouseOf1000Corpses'' and its sequel, ''Film/TheDevilsRejects'' by Creator/RobZombie feature a backwoods clan of deranged serial killers who commit various physical, sexual, and psychological tortures on their innocent victims.
* ''Film/TheHumanCentipede'' trilogy combines this with BodyHorror. The worst stuff was [[GoryDiscretionShot merely alluded to]] in the first film, though the second one went out of its way to show it in [[BloodierAndGorier full, gory, scatological detail]], before [[UpToEleven plunging straight into]] SelfParody with the third installment.
* ''Film/ISpitOnYourGrave'', probably the most infamous RapeAndRevenge movie of all time. Not so much the original film, save for the horrifying rape scene, but the revenge portion of the remake definitely falls into this.
* ''Film/IchiTheKiller'', when Kakihara or the twins are around.
* ''Film/InglouriousBasterds''. While most of [[Creator/QuentinTarantino Quentin Tarantino's]] works veer more towards {{Gorn}} and ExploitationFilm than Torture Porn, this film features a fair amount of lovingly depicted torture inflicted mostly on [[AcceptableTargets Nazis]]. Several Nazi soldiers have swastikas carved onto their foreheads with a Bowie knife, one officer is psychologically tortured before having his head crushed with a baseball bat, and a character sticks his finger into a bullethole in a woman's leg, among other examples.
* ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft'': Most of its drama comes in the form of the torture and rape of two young women.
* ''Film/LawAbidingCitizen'' has, as one of its most famous scenes, Creator/GerardButler's character [[StrappedToAnOperatingTable strapping the man who murdered his family to an operating table]] and describing to him, [[ToThePain in graphic detail]], all of the ways in which he is going to dismember and torture him to death -- all while he is ForcedToWatch, with his eyelids cut off, a large mirror hanging over the operating table, and adrenaline being injected into his veins so he doesn't pass out. We don't see much of the actual torture beyond Butler taking a buzzsaw to the man's leg, but the police do find what is left of him later.
* Many of Creator/LucioFulci's films, especially ''Film/TheNewYorkRipper'', where a stripper is killed by having a broken bottle ground into her crotch.
* The French film ''Film/{{Martyrs}}'' (which a lot seem to categorize as "too ''good'' to be mere torture porn") starts as a bloody revenge flick on a seemingly normal family, devolves into humiliation torture, and ends with [[spoiler:the martyr being [[FlayingAlive graphically skinned alive]], left to hang that way, and her long-sought otherworldy revelations [[GoMadFromTheRevelation driving her captor to suicide]]]].
* Creator/MelGibson got this kind of reputation through his movies ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'' and ''Film/{{Apocalypto}}'', which both featured prolonged and graphic scenes of torture, punishment and human sacrifice. Critics of the former often nicknamed it ''"The UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Chainsaw Massacre]]''" for its extreme violence. Some touch on the "Porn" aspect of "Torture Porn" as well regarding ''Passion'', with David Edelstein (the {{Trope Namer|s}}) calling it tantamount to a SnuffFilm and Creator/StephenKing arguing that its violence is taken to a fetishistic level.
* ''Film/{{Nekromantik}}'', which features several people being killed by a necrophiliac and includes a graphic, real scene of a rabbit being killed and skinned.
* ''Film/PinkFlamingos'', the film to start with if you're interested in the work of Creator/JohnWaters, plays with this trope mockingly. One scene, one very long and uncomfortable scene, features a man having sex with a chicken (resulting in bloody lacerations for the nude gentleman and an onscreen death for the chicken), and another features what can best be described as "a heartwarming torture sequence wherein women are beaten in a basement and raped with a turkey baster, with the resulting babies being sold to lesbians." Thankfully, John Waters is parodying the "True Crime" genre, so it's usually meant to be (disturbingly) funny.
* ''Film/SaloOrThe120DaysOfSodom'' is often considered an early example of this genre. Granted, the Creator/MarquisDeSade novel it's based on is ''even more'' infamous.
* The ''Franchise/{{Saw}}'' films. While the [[Film/SawI first film]] is actually fairly light on explicit gore (and was more of a straight serial-killer story along the lines of ''Film/{{Se7en}}'' than a straight example of this genre), the sequels (especially from the [[Film/SawIII third one]] on) most certainly ''aren't'', and the series as a whole is the TropeCodifier for the genre.
** Ironically, the third film had an aversion of the literal meaning of this trope. In one of the traps, a woman in a room-sized freezer is sprayed with ice-cold water, and will freeze to death unless the protagonist can reach the key to her escape. The woman was to be fully clothed in the original version, but the director chose to have her naked instead -- not to make the scene sexier, but to make it ''less'' sexualized and avoid a [[WetSariScene wet T-shirt scene]].
* ''Film/ASerbianFilm'', which includes a woman having her teeth removed and then being suffocated to death via oral sex, a woman being decapitated while she's being sexually penetrated, a young boy being raped by his [[GagPenis well-endowed]] father, and, most infamously, "newborn porn."
* ''Film/SickGirl'', which has what is possibly the most disturbing girl on girl rape scene ever.
* Averted for the original ''Film/TheTexasChainSawMassacre1974'', which was almost BloodlessCarnage. However, the BloodierAndGorier sequels and remakes can count for this.
* ''Film/{{Unthinkable}}'': Nuclear bombs are set to go off, and it's up to Creator/SamuelLJackson to torture their whereabouts out of the man who planted them.
* ''Film/{{Videodrome}}'': Subverted in-universe. When Max first sees the pirated Videodrome transmission, he thinks that it's the most realistic torture exploitation he's ever seen, which is exactly what he thinks his channel's viewers will want. Only later does he realize that Videodrome's 'actors' don't ever return, and is a real SnuffFilm operation.
* A group of people are captured and forced to mutilate themselves in order to produce endorphins in ''Film/{{Vile}}''.
* 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. It went on to inspire a number of more gratuitous imitators, 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).
* The "fucked up fondue" scene in ''Film/WrongTurn4BloodyBeginnings'', along with a few other instances, like death via electroshock, and dismemberment on a makeshift, barbed wire rack.

* ''Literature/AmericanPsycho'', though not the film based on it.
* ''Literature/{{Haunted|2005}}'' by Creator/ChuckPalahniuk. "Guts" is one of the featured short stories.
* The Creator/MarquisDeSade is the TropeMaker, and one of the most infamous authors in history; the word "sadism" was named after him, and, unlike most examples on this page, his torture porn is also literally porn. His stories are full of rape, incest, bondage, sadomasochism, pedophilia, coprophilia, and necrophilia. His most infamous work was ''Literature/The120DaysOfSodom'' which had four libertines and their accomplices kidnapping and horrifically abusing sixteen teenagers over 120 days. UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte had him thrown in jail after reading ''Justine'' (about a young woman who is raped, tortured, and sexually abused over many years for her virtue and purity), which is actually one of his milder works.
* A British pulp fiction publisher, Creator/NewEnglishLibrary, specialized in this sort of stuff, which garnered it the nickname "Nasty, Explicit and Lurid". Their short novellas (usually around 128 pages each, and supposedly written mainly by Ray Slattery under names like "John Slater" and "Jim Kent") were primarily 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 covers had lurid illustrations of torture scenes, and the titles included the likes of ''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. For a while, the novellas could be found quite easily in used bookshops, but then they became quite rare and expensive. Some suspect that one reason why the books became rare was that the lurid covers and titles offended the conservative sensibilities of the older people who often worked in these charity shops, and so they got tossed out in the rubbish.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* There's a reason that Jack Bauer from ''Series/TwentyFour'' has a [[JackBauerInterrogationTechnique trope named after him]]. The ways in which he acquires information from his prisoners - and how these ways are both shown and described - fall about as close to this category as one can get on network television.
* The occasional short on ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie''.
* ''Series/MastersOfHorror'', especially the second season.
* ''Series/DoctorWho'' remains fairly tame, but considering it was aimed at children:
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS12E3TheSontaranExperiment The Sontaran Experiment]]" is pretty grim on-screen, being about a particularly depraved Sontaran torturing captive humans in "experiments" to determine their vulnerabilities, but jumped straight into this in the novelisation. Due to the shortness of the story, it was [[{{Padding}} padded out]] with lots and lots of torture scenes that are irrelevant to the plot.
** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS14E3TheDeadlyAssassin The Deadly Assassin]]" had quite a lot of torture scenes.
** The story "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS22E2VengeanceOnVaros Vengeance on Varos]]", which is set in a depraved far-future society which tortures and kills its rebels in inventive ways on [[PublicExecution live TV]], and exports the videos to other worlds as {{Snuff Film}}s. Depending on your view it is either a prescient satire on the genre or an early, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids ugly]] example.
* [[spoiler:Theon]]'s subplot in season 3 of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' devolves into this.
* Parodied in ''Lovebites''. In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vL2NEEgiFVc "Coming Attractions,"]] the protagonist couple Max and Katie are watching previews in the theater, when the trailer for a movie called ''Open Hearts'' comes up. It looks like a romantic drama at first, but it quickly turns out that the boyfriend in the movie is a depraved SerialKiller who proceeds to graphically torture the woman to death in ''very'' prolongued fashion while [[EvilLaugh laughing psychotically]]. The two are rather disturbed by it.
* The [[BrokenBase base-breaking]] ''Series/SixFeetUnder'' episode "That's My Dog", in which David is kidnapped, sexually-assaulted, tortured and nearly killed by a psychopathic hitch-hiker.
* The Winchesters experience this a lot in ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''.
* The [[Recap/TheWalkingDeadS07E01TheDayWillComeWhenYouWontBe Season 7 premiere]] of ''Series/TheWalkingDead''. Newly introduced BigBad Negan brutally murders two main characters, gleefully smashing their skulls with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire until nothing is left but {{Gorn}}. He taunts and torments their friends, who are ForcedToWatch the entire time. He psychologically breaks series protagonist Rick Grimes, physically dominating him and later almost forcing him to sever his own son's arm with a hatchet until he is left a sobbing, blubbering wreck.

* Music/FrankZappa's "The Torture Never Stops" from ''Music/ZootAllures''. It evokes medieval dungeon imagery, with sounds of two women screaming and moaning throughout. The sounds they make sound suspiciously like orgastic moans, though...
* The music video for the Music/{{Eminem}} song "3 a.m." was described as this by ''New York Magazine''.
* "Back Pack" by Music/AndrewJacksonJihad invokes this in the second verse to sad and horrifying effect.
* {{Horrorcore}} is a genre that thrives on this, going into lurid detail on people getting brutally tortured and murdered in all manner of excruciatingly brutal ways. Not surprising, given that much of it is an homage to classic horror films, especially those of the sort that are considered torture porn.

* AudioPlay/BigFinishDoctorWho dives into this trope on occasion. The episodes [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho034SpareParts "Spare Parts"]], [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho040Jubilee "Jubilee"]], [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho052Scherzo "Scherzo"]],[[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho053TheCreedOfTheKromon "The Creed Of The Kromon"]] and [[Recap/BigFinishDoctorWho054TheNaturalHistoryOfFear "The Natural History Of Fear"]] (the last three of which follow each other directly) immediately come to mind.
** The Fifth Doctor is a frequent recipient of torture in Creator/BigFinish in general, to the point where it hardly even fazes him anymore. His very first episode had him breaking his leg, being strapped into a torture device and screaming in agony in the background for an entire scene while Seven and Six calmly discussed how to save the day.

[[folder: Theater]]
* You [[JustForFun/TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples may or may not be surprised]] to learn that there's a Creator/WilliamShakespeare play that comes about as close to this as you can get on a stage: ''Theatre/TitusAndronicus'', his first big play.
* The Grand Guignol theater in UsefulNotes/{{Paris}}, open from [[TheGayNineties 1897]] to [[TheSixties 1962]], was a legendary purveyor of this, especially during its height in the [[TheRoaringTwenties interwar]] [[TheGreatDepression period]]. The name of the theater is still occasionally used as shorthand for graphic, highly stylized and fetishized violence.
* Theatre/OedipusTheKing has Oedipus emerge having learnt of what he's done, [[EyeScream now having gouged out his own eyes]]. Medea features an extremely graphic description of what happened when Glauce put on a dress covered in highly acidic poison, and when her father hugged her body with this skin-dissolving venom still in effect.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Some mature-only visual novels may constitute literal torture porn, i.e. feature characters being sexually tortured non-BDSM-wise. Clockup is one of the visual novel producers that make games where characters are raped and mutilated/amputated/decapitated at the same time.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* Some of the scenes in ''Roleplay/SurvivalOfTheFittest'' can fall into this, particularly in earlier versions. In more recent history, handlers have been attempting to avert this due to both realism and good taste. However, you still get moments where {{Gorn}} conspicuously comes up in a manner similar to this trope.
* ''WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob'' reviews some of these films, and even admits the term was just made up by snobs like him so they could look down on modern horror movies (not that he thinks highly of many older horror films).
* ''WebAnimation/HappyTreeFriends'' combines this with SubvertedKidsShow ''hard''.
* The fake movie ''[[http://www.somethingawful.com/awful-movie-database/slew-movie-horror/ Slew]]'' from Website/SomethingAwful's Awful Movie Database is a parody of the genre, in which gorgeous women are forced to mutilate themselves in a highly sexualized manner (taking the "porn" part of the trope a bit too literally). The snippet we get of one of the user comments [[TooMuchInformation tells us way too much about the sort of people who enjoy this film]].
-->'''Incorrectly Regarded As Goofs:''' When Lucy gets caught in the breast vice it shows her cutting her breasts off to escape, then cuts to her with her breasts back again, then she cuts them off a second time in greater detail. The first sequence of her cutting her breasts off is intended to be her imagining cutting her breasts off before she cuts them off to escape the breast vice trap and deactivate the water pump filling the room with water.
* The short-lived (so far) series ''[[http://www.mis-directed.com/1/post/2011/04/mis-directed-web-series-webisode-1-pilot.html Mis-Directed]]'' [[ParodiedTrope spoofs this]] in the first episode. It's about a brother and sister trying to make one of these films, and in addition to the camera problems, the sister Julianna plays the victims with heaps of BadBadActing and she acts like ThePrimaDonna while wearing a [[PrettyInMink purple rabbit fur jacket]].
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZbX1_aCvsg&index=1&list=PLBZXkOVkOn1ko9pDOFhTK-PrUvFh402bp This series]] by Horrible Reviews is essentially an examination of the surprisingly extensive examples of this subgenre in cinema over the years (including a number which largely fell off the radar).
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjDI3zFGCVQ This short film]] is literally titled ''Torture Porn'' and is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. [[spoiler:It turns out it's all innocuous foreplay, with the TortureTechnician and his victim being gay lovers with a torture fetish shooting a HomePornMovie.]]
* A few of the more violent and detailed {{Creepypasta}}s can venture into this, and a lot of the poorly-written ones tend to [[ArtisticLicenseBiology ignore biology hard enough]] to even cross back over into NightmareRetardant.
