fangoriously

ad012; blending
Describing the furious gnashing of teeth, fangs, etc I know what you are thinking: weird word from a weird source, but hear me out. While the source is somewhat questionable, this a great blend of several words and word endings, both adjective and adverb! I think it is a great example of how easily new words can be formed by simply adding suffixes to a word. This word was used to describe someone being eaten by a monster, and it incorporates some fang imagery. Also, you could think of the word as 'furiously gnashing of teeth.' I have also heard the word 'fangoria' used by people to describe weird or creepy things associated with horror, i.e. Fangoria magazine.
 
'The person was being fangoriously devoured by a gelatinous monster.
Etymology : 'fang' (a sharp pointed tooth) X 'gore' (horrible scene or bloodshed) X 'i' X 'ous' (ADJ) X 'ly' (ADV)
