Honestly, I don't know. It's like I'm drawn to it. It's like I want to see the absolute sickest shit someone can do to the human body. But while it used to be all fun & games, now I just feel sick. The more I indulge, the sicker I feel. I watched a video the other day on the net where these three Russian kids brutally murdered a man by stabbing his stomach with a screwdriver, galging an eye out, and beating his face in with a hammer. Intensely sick shit... and it was completely real. The noises he made were fucking horrible. It's called 3 Guys 1 Hammer. It made news a long time ago. But yeah, sometimes I think people like me have psychological problems. Just by mere fact we want to see stuff like this.

I think it's mainly the same reason someone would want to watch a horror film, just put into a more extreme context.
Personally there are a lot of factors; I am drawn to controversy and love to learn about 'shocking' entertainment, almost from a educational point of view. There's also just curiosity, and wanting to know if movies are really all they are cracked up to be. In general I am just drawn to the macabre, and I feel to need to find out everything I can about obscure shock entertainment.
That said, I don't really enjoy August Underground and similar movies, I am fascinated by them, but I don't feel happy or satisfied after watching them like I would listening to music. I am very interested in special effects and other aspects of cinema, so that plays a role in it too.
It's a very disgusting form of entertainment, but I wouldn't say the majority those who partake in it have any psychological problems. I can only speak for myself, but seeing even the more graphic and vile murder/torture on screen does not prepare me in the least bit for seeing violence in real life. I've never seen anyone violently die, but I assure you it would be a deeply scarring experience, regardless of how many movies I've seen. I'm also a very nonviolent person in real life, so it definitely has not made me into violence or anything like that.

Very well put. I would never want to see a real murder.

While I am fascinated and shocked by those types of movies, they're not something I watch all the time.

I guess I can understand the curiosity factor, I mean, I google image searched some of those movies and quickly clicked away when I saw something disturbing. I couldn't sit through one in film form though, I think I'd a) vomit b) have my sleep haunted for weeks. Too, too fucked up for me.

Ya, you have to have both a stomach and mind that can handle it.
