The only new horror film in wide release for this Halloween season is the remake of Carrie starring Chloe Grace Moretz as the titular teen with telekinetic powers. In remembrance of Carrie's hellish prom during which she gets soaked in pig's blood, we take a look back at some of the most splatter-filled scenes in movie history that will have you seeing red. And natch, it goes without saying that these are NSFW.
A classic: Wendy Torrance (Shelley Duvall) runs into a wall of blood oozing from an elevator shaft at the Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining.
Evil Dead (2013)
In the climactic scene of the Evil Dead remake, our heroine is soaked in so much blood that she is barely recognizable.
Kill Bill, Vol. 1

The Collector doesn't have an affinity for young club goers as evidenced by this giant shredder that clears out human weeds. (Skip ahead to the good part.)
Midnight Meat Train
Ted Raimi is one of the memorable victims of Mahogany (Vinnie Jones) in this subway scene from the movie based on Clive Barker's short story.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
When you pick up a hitchhiker and something like this happens, you had better just turn around and get the hell out of the Lone Star State.
