Goregrish.com and most other similar shock websites exist on the premise the general public should have full access to multimedia that mainstream media organizations would never publish. The vast majority of video and images presented on goregrish contain extreme graphic violence, some being arguably classed as snuff movies, with videos such as the Dnepropetrovsk maniacs and Luka Magnotta criminal acts of murder being freely available to view there.
A shock site is a website that is intended to be offensive or disturbing to its viewers, though it can also contain elements of humor or evoke (in some viewers) sexual arousal. They contain material of high shock value, generally of a pornographic, scatological, racist, sexist, graphically violent, insulting, vulgar, profane, or otherwise provocative nature. Some shock sites display a single picture, animation, video clip or small gallery, and are circulated via email or disguised in posts to discussion sites as a prank. Steven Jones distinguishes these sites from those that collect galleries where users search for shocking content, such as Rotten.com. Gallery sites can contain beheadings, execution, electrocution, suicide, murder, stoning, torching, drowning, vehicular accidents, war victims, rape, necrophilia, genital mutilation and other sexual crimes.
