In the first part of the article the author describes various means used by filmmakers within the gore genre, in order to create a feeling of disgust and disorientation in the viewer. Then in the second part, Sawicki concentrates on the work of the Italian horror director Lucio Fulci. His work can be seen a metaphor that takes the shape of a laboratory test-tube, in which one can observe the destructive workings of the elements of gore on traditional cinema conventions and traditional cinema aesthetics.
