Why It Was Cancelled
- The film was cancelled following the sexual assault allegations against Kevin Spacey from numerous men (including Anthony Rapp) and two women who accused him of sexual assault, rape, sexual harassment, pedophilia, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct during the MeToo and Time's Up movement, all of which he has denied.
- Netflix shelved Gore following the allegations against Kevin Spacey, and the film will most likely never be released.
