There are some films you definitely shouldn’t watch on a full stomach; ‘The Fly’ is one such movie.
It all starts out well and good for Jeff Goldblum, he’s smart, doing well with the right woman and he’s come up with the greatest invention in the history of technology, a teleportation device. Of course, this is a David Cronenberg film we’re talking about, so you can bet it all goes a bit iffy when he accidentally jumps in the machine with a house fly. As his DNA mingles with that of the insect, he starts to transform… with hideous and dire consequences!
Watch in terror as the human anatomy literally falls away piece by piece in this masterpiece of body horror. You’ll be counting your fingers and toes to make sure they’re all accounted for, right before this next lot of movies pushes you over the edge!
Working in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nothing but snow for miles and miles would suck at the best of times, right? But when a group of scientists in the Antarctic come across a shapeshifting alien that has infiltrated their base, things get a whole lot worse.
There’s plenty of metamorphosis horror where the alien transforms and mutilates itself to escape capture or kill its unfortunate human prey. Whether it’s heads walking around like spiders or dogs bursting open in an explosion of tentacles and gore, this movie will burn itself onto your brain for the rest of your life.
Don’t make the same mistake as me and watch this movie on your own at four in the morning, it’ll mess you up!
Donald Sutherland stars in this paranoid horror/sci fi as a city health inspector who stumbles across an epidemic that sees people starting to act strange. They don’t talk, they show no emotion and they’re just damn weird. Could it be an alien invasion taking over the human race? You bet your butt it is!
There’s some great practical effects here, especially when you see how these aliens breed their clones. My personal favourite moment? When they get a homeless man and his dog mixed up and the abomination is set loose in the streets when the crap hits the fan.
This is one hell of campy horror comedy, a movie so OTT in its gore and body horror that you can’t help but shake your head in disbelief… but hey, that’s why we watch these movies!
‘ReAnimator’ is a cult classic of the purest form, telling H.P. Lovecraft’s twisted story about a medical student who discovers that he can bring dead human tissue back to life. Of course, things go a bit crazy and people start to die, but I don’t think you’ll ever be prepared for just how mental this one gets.
So maybe you’re after more movies about mad scientists and the genius idea that eventually leads to terrifying and deadly results? Well never fear because I’ve whipped up two more movies that’ll convince you to never step in a science lab again!
Kevin Bacon stars in this vastly underrated sci fi as the brilliant mind who invents a way to turn himself invisible. While his medical team laud this incredible breakthrough, things quickly go sour as his newfound ability gives him a totally different mindset, one that sees him use his invisibility for his own perverse and twisted means.
The effects are somewhat dated, but it’s an intriguing picture with an original premise. Plus it makes you question how you’d act if nobody could see you.
I’d just sneak into the cinema… I swear!
As another body horror movie with a mad doctor twist, ‘From Beyond’ is a disturbing look at a scientist who has convinced himself that there is an unseen dimension that exists just beyond our world where monsters and horrific entities exist. When he invents a machine to see this alternate realm, all hell breaks loose.
You can look forward to plenty of decapitation and dismemberment here… Urgh!
Okay guys, I’m just gonna leave this bucket here so you don’t get puke all over the - oh nevermind, there it goes, all over the new rug! And on my new shoes! I wouldn’t have shown you these if I’d known this was how you’d react!
