bestgore.com was a shock site owned by Mark Marek on April 30, 2008, The website which it provides highly violent real-life news, photos, and videos, with authored opinion and user comments.
The site was launched on April 30, 2008, by Slovakian-Canadian Mark Marek, and hosts explicit, real-life, photographic and video material of events such as murders, suicides, torture, mutilations, and accidents. With an estimated 10–15 million monthly visits, Best Gore is currently the biggest shock site in the world. As well as real-life footage and pictures, there are also articles promoting conspiracy theories and revisionist histories, such as holocaust denial, with source material from, most notably David Irving and Ursula Haverbeck. The site has been described as Anti-Semitic and Anti-Zionist.
In late 2020, the website closed with the message "For over 12 years, BestGore.com was the go to source for reality news. Change is the only constant in life. Remember: Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it turned into a butterfly!" The website was also put on sale.

As a result, Marek was arrested and charged under Canada's obscenity law with corrupting public morals. The conditions of his bail prohibit the use of computers or mobile telephones; this effectively ended his administration of the site until at least the outcome of his trial, expected in early 2016. Although Marek has been unable to run the website, several contributors have kept it functioning and continue to post material on a daily basis.
Marek said that he had received testimonies from readers that viewing the images on his site had convinced them to avoid speeding, darting between traffic on a motorcycle, horseplay with forklifts, even from committing suicide, and that the government itself recognized the utility of shocking images by requiring them on cigarette packaging.
