About Us

Violently Beautiful...

Is a Group dedicated to Horror and Gore! Like the name says, visual works of a violently beautiful nature, but not completely limited to blood images. Any atmospheric, frightening, chilling horror works will be considered for submission. In fact the atmosphere is maybe more important than the amount of gore it contains.

It's a great place for all horror lovers to join, old (bloodied) hands, or deviants new to the subject. Come along and ask questions, get to know the people behind the gore. We're really not as scary as our work. Usually.

We are working to promote this valid art form and challenge the preconceptions of the genre.


What is horror?

Many people simply can't get their head around what is appealing about breaking out the fake blood, entrails and creating scary, horror atmospheres. It's true: horror is an acquired taste, though I'd have to say I believe fear is an integral part of us and our nature. Most people enjoy being scared and hiding behind the sofa when watching horror films, or listening to spooky ghost stories at bedtime and being too terrified to sleep. It's fun. Most people say 'eeewww' at blood but blood is an important part of us. It's our life force. Horror can raise important questions about the dark side of humanity which may be in each of us, and ultimately, something that is a certainty for us all: death. It just takes a little open-mindedness to start seeing through different (open) eyes.

What horror is not:

FAQ #284: Can we submit photographs showing actual injury, self-harm and mutilation?

Please do no submit self harm photography to this group. It will be declined. It does not portray 'horror' in the sense that this group goes for - maybe your circumstances are terrible, maybe they are not - but it is not welcome here. We will not glorify actual self harm. Thank you.

Submission info

- to Gallery (Members Work)

Horror and Macabre PHOTOGRAPHY ONLY! Please be selective in your submissions. It's very easy to smear some ketchup over a t-shirt but harder to capture it effectively on camera. Submit only your best works.

- to Favourites

Favourites can be of any visual medium, as long as they are horrifically scary. We are still in the consideration stage for lit. Let us know if you'd be interested in this feature.

To submit your favourites for approval, please keep in mind that this is a horror and macabre group and we are looking for scary, gory, bloody, depraved and utterly disgusting work. Please do not submit a picture of a cute little kitten (unless perhaps it's covered in blood) or a sunset. Maybe it's scary to you but to the rest of the world, it's just adorable.

Serenade Me, Sinister




Using the Horror/Macabre gallery to bring you music and mayhem, this week I bring to you Moist.

Moist



Moist was a five-piece Canadian alternative rock band that was popular in the mid-to-late-1990s. The band was led by lead singer David Usher, and featured Mark Makoway (guitars), Jeff Pearce (bass), Kevin Young (keyboards) and Paul Wilcox (drums). Moist formed in Vancouver, BC in the fall of 1992.  In January 1994 they completed their first full length CD, which was titled Silver.
Strong independent sales led to the band signing with EMI Music Canada.
The album went on to sell 400,000 copies in Canada on the strength of singles like "Push", "Silver" and "Believe Me".

Moist was most notably known for their in depth, dark lyrics which weren't as mainstream at the time of their popularity.




Push - Moist:



So close your eyes

Your christ has come

The crippled boy that you once knew

The charmed enigma chosen one

With painted lips

Skin ripped and torn

Come touch and feel and lick and smell

This envy that i've worn so well

Wish by PorcelainPoet
Jesus Mask by Azzron The Ghost by ValentinaKallias

Everybody wants

Everybody says

Everybody begs

In time


Hourglass by Pencil4artists

So drink me in

Like tainted wine

Come bite down on my sharpened cup

And taste the dreams that numb the mind

A simple word

A harmless glare

That binds me with the thinnest thread

And pins me down to pleasure's bed


Drip drip drip by AnxietyPatient What Else ? by joganelken It lays in wait, dormant but a by sophos9

And you will be the first to fall

Every feeling will dissolve

We are silver

Morphine baby's final breath

Ever smothered to my chest

We are silver


your silver nightmare.2 by Santina

So shy and poised

With few regrets

A judas kill a complex thrill

A memory i won't soon forget

Been washed out clean

'til all runs dry

Come touch and feel and lick and smell

The hurt that only you could sell


What have you done? by Ophelia-Overdose washed up by phoheisel:thumb296579119:

And you will be the first to fall

Every feeling will dissolve

We are silver

Morphine baby's final breath

Every smothered to my breast

We are silver


the rising by raido-ehwaz

Sister i will follow you

This time

Knowing i will follow you

Everybody wants

Everybody says

Everybody begs

In time

You will be the first to fall

Every feeling will dissolve

We are silver

Morphine baby's final breath

Ever smothered to your breast

We are silver
