"Keep It In The Family!"...
10 December 2018 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

A new, experimental "vitamin supplement" has been given to the unsuspecting residents of tiny Pebbles Court. As people try the free sample packets of the powder in their beverages, unexpected and disgusting side effects occur. BODY MELT is every bit as insane as the title suggests. One of the effects of the "vitamin" is hallucination, though it's hard to tell fantasy from reality most of the time. The beyond-bonkers characters at the mechanic's garage are perfect examples of this movie's utter madness. So, if you prefer a straightforward story, or serious movie-making, this is probably a... tragic choice. On the other hand, or foot, or other extremity, if blood and slime by the dump truck-full, combined with the weirdest characters / situations ever filmed are your cup of sludge, then heaven is yours! Going for the total gross-out factor, this is a true love it or hate it movie. Somehow, I'm torn between the two. BE READY FOR: Inbred adrenaline freaks, explosive pregnancy, face peeling, musclemen, mad science, terminal sexual dysfunction, death-by-tongue, and a three-legged dingo!...
