Horror is totally my bag. I friggin’ love it. But I’m not mad on anything too gross. Somehow, though, I found these gross-out body horrors to be strangely compelling and actually kind of enjoyable.
Katharine Isabelle is absolutely wonderful in this macabre tale of a young medical student who turns to unorthodox methods in order to make a few extra bucks.
Possibly the grossest one on the list, it doesn’t have the best production values or the best story but I couldn’t not watch to the end. In a nutshell it’s about a neurotic, struggling young actress who develops a compulsion to eat her own flesh.
You can’t have body horror without David Cronenberg, and this one is a true classic. That transformation…[shudder] Poor old Brundlefly.
Obviously I’m talking about the 80s sci-fi excellentness that was John Carpenter’s film. Not the soulless and unnecessary remake starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and featuring that nipples guy from Community. That one was just shit.
So, alien slug-parasites that turn their hosts into zombie creatures, and mutants? And Nathan Fillion? I’m in!
Talk about unique! I’ve talked about this one before. Have you seen it? What did you think?
