I'm looking for a trope where there is a group of people and someone kills one person and blood/guts go everywhere and it splatters all over the audience.

    @dmikester1 Check out - tvtropes.org. "Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations." But be warned you can get lost on that site ;-)

There are several tropes dealing with gore and blood splatter. Ludicrous Gibs for example is a trope for when there is simply an excess amount of gore (think Evil Dead). But I think closer to what you are referring to would be something more like Gorey Discretion Shot combined with Blood Spattered Innocents

I think just about every episode of Supernatural starts this way.

  • Im trying to look for a gif that deals with an audience that gets splattered with blood. Something like glourus bastards or scary movie 3 with the funeral.

    a gif is not a trope and google is your friend
