Take the cream of Australian soap actors, mix in a gore-packed script add a pinch of devilishly funny humour, stir, place in oven and garnish with delux Campness and boy do I mean Camp with a capital C! .A serious gore-filled horror film or a deliciously funny parody of one? BOTH and yet so much more! Ian Smith Harold from Neighbours steals the show as an evil Doctor so camp he makes Dr.Frank N'Furter the Rocky Horror Picture Show look straighter than a ruler!Packed with wickedly vicious humour scream as people get for want of a better word "snotted" to death, laugh as <more>
the boy on the skateboard meets his final end and cry when the killer placenta from Hell goes on the rampage.All in all a wonderful, light hearted comedy/splatter movie! WATCH IT NOW!!!
A classic peter Jackson style gore fest of the grubbiest kind. I actually watched this film when i was about 17 i am now 26 so i can only remember what my mind lets me with fond clouded memories but none the less i think i am almost as much of a kid at heart now as i was then, so i'll be equally as biased. For what most people after watching this film would call juvinile gibberish i'd call idiosyncratic australian humour, for the most part because it is so slapstick and because in no way does it take its self seriously. The acting is lame and the story almost as phlacid but the <more>
effect the director i hope was going for was one of ridiculous hilarity. That is what i got from the film anyway - i'm sure many of you out there will beg to differ.Interesting facts - I laughed when i realised that three members of the Australian soap Neighbours featured in this film. For all the Americans out there, Neighbours was a particularly tame but sucessful Australian soap aired in England. It is quite ironic that the unexciting character Harold Bishop played a sadistic doctor who in one scene cuts his own ear off. I particularly liked when in the end credits the 'Cock and ass' featured as porn on a tv screen in a scene is accredited to the director and his wife - what dedication!
Gory, yet funny, Sick, yet entrancing, a good first look at Australians.... (by Bas-7)
The second funniest horror/comedy I have ever seen, second only to Kiwi flick Dead Alive aka Brain Dead . Special effects are corny, yet very well done. The plot isn't too involving, but doesn't fall apart and can be followed with ease. Great portrayal of your average Australian. Basically there's this company that tests it's hazardous products on a new neighbourhood causing havoc. Genitals explode, rednecks shove sticks up people, and pregnant women burst open and their placentas attack people. Superb! 8/10.

It's the crazy characters that make this film. The country "bogans", the health resort workers, the cops - they're all excellent Australian parodies. Then the fun multiplies as they die in such gory and creative ways.My only criticism is that the story doesn't stand up to much analysis, and I would have to say Peter Jackson's early films are vastly more coherent in the narrative department. The following are just some of the questions that I have: How could the bogan chemist possibly sabotage the vitamins when he has been expelled from the Vimuville team and <more>
apparently been nowhere near the resort for many years? Did the screenwriter actually know what was supposed to be in the vitamins? - ie why is it implied at one point that the victims are dying from a virus? What is the bad lady actually trying to accomplish? Kill innocent people? Or actually produce a functional health drug? Does she even know herself what her objective is? Why is she conducting secret drug trials when the vitamins are already on the supermarket shelves? Isn't it a bit late for that? And what's with the long hallucination scenes with the freaky girl who steals the ribs - this is a pretty big tangent don't you think?Anyway this isn't something you watch for the narrative. Great film!
As an Australian reviewer it is gratifying seeing reviewers from other countries express their appreciation for Philip Brophy's little 1993 gore-fest. Brophy is something of a Renaissance Man, wearing many hats from composer and musician to film critic, curator and academic for those interested in Brophy's scholarly work you might want to check out his website: http://www.philipbrophy.com/index.html . BODY MELT cleverly pokes fun at a variety of popular contemporary Australian television dramas most notably NEIGHBOURS, the long-running prime-time Aussie soap opera well-known to <more>
British viewers and set in the neighbourly cul-de-sac of Ramsay Street and 1970s Aussie police procedurals. Even most of his cast come from Australian television series, such as BLUE HEALERS regulars Lisa McCune and William McInnes and Brett Climo who starred in A COUNTRY PRACTISE and THE FLYING DOCTORS and Gerard Kennedy, the face of Crawford Productions 1970s cop show, DIVISION 4. Perhaps best of all is the casting of NEIGHBOURS veteran Ian Smith, who plays Harold Bishop in that long-running TV Soap. Casting Smith as eccentric Dr. Carrera, Brophy provides the actor with a rare opportunity to play against type and Smith inhabits the role with relish.I was at the wonderful old Valhalla Cinema in Northcote now the far less interesting Westgarth Cinema back in 1993 on the night that Brophy premiered BODY MELT to an appreciative Melbourne audience who belly-laughed at the over-the-top comedy and lurid special effects. His depictions of bodies self-destructing and liquefying in various icky and imaginative ways recalled, for me, Brophy's 1988 experimental film, SALT SALIVA SPERM AND SWEAT, in which he explores corporeality and the idea of bodily fluids as a form of social exchange. At the screening, Brophy explained that he incorporated ideas he'd had for shorter films into BODY MELT as side-stories, admitting that while they do not contribute towards a cohesive narrative, they nevertheless fit within the broader thematic concerns of the film. Indeed, I would argue that these moments of suburban Gothic psychedelia and outback redneck cannibalism add to the outlandish comedy and disorienting effect of the film. It's nice to see people from other countries getting into this film, which deserves a higher rating than 4.3, even if some of the humour is culturally parochial. Thanks to those who took the time to watch and appreciate this overlooked little gem.
Wow... Body Melt is by far one of the most bizarre films I have ever seen come out of the horror genre. Mixed with gacky gore, electronic music, hallucinations, a mish-mosh storyline, and apparently Australian soup opera actors, Body Melt delivers for a truly original ride.An experimental drug for wait loss called Vemuville is being tested in a small community. The results are more than messy. People don't just melt but actually mutate. A pregnant woman's baby comes to life as a slimy mess after premature birth and attacks the father while the mothers stomach explodes open. A <more>
woman's tongue grows so grotesquely large she chokes to death. These are the type of scenes you will see in Body Melt.Although, for my tastes, I wish it were a little more gory but it doesn't take away from the gross out feel to the movie because on that level it delivers. Also, upon first viewing, the storyline appears to be all over the place. This is because the movie was originally based off of four short stories the director had written. I must recommend this film to those of you looking for for something different. I don't think you will be disappointed. 8/10
This movie is part horror, part farce. It makes fun of 90's fitness trends while giving gorehounds the disgusting goods. Basically, a corrupt health spa develops a health shake that eats people from the inside out, makes them grow tentacles, hawk up excessive amounts of mucus, the general side-effect type stuff. Two people co-owned the company then split up. One owner moves out to the country to start his own "vacation spa" facility where people stay for a few weeks to get in shape. Now defunct, two boys go to see what it's all about. The "spa" looks more like a <more>
double-wide trailer with ill-constructed additions put on it. In addition to the owner, two country boys and a rather large woman in masculine make-up inhabit the place. One of the boys is a speed freak who can only get his fix by eating the adrenaline gland of kangaroos it IS Australia. Meanwhile, a pregnant woman in the small suburb where free samples of the health shake are being sent has some birth defects. It seems the shake makes a pregnant woman's placenta pop out of her and come to life. Her husband comes home to find her dead with her stomach split open, and finds that her sister's head has begun to melt. The placenta attacks his face, sucking his eyeballs out of their sockets. Another family tries out the "new" corrupted health spa owner's facility. All goes well until the son has a horrific halfpipe skateboarding accident accident and the husband hawks up so much snot that he disintegrates it has to be seen to be believed . The mother makes it out of the place with her daughter and stops at a walk-in clinic, only to be gawked at by patients. The health spa is exposed and shut down. There are some incredibly nasty moments in this movie. I'm talking melting bodies, collapsing heads, tentacles, deadly placentas, eyeballs hanging from sockets, two foot long tongues, mutants, bloody semen, a boy has his face burned off from a REALLY bad scrape, tons of projectile vomiting, dishwasher fluid drinking, a 6'5 muscular man-woman thing, violent sex, fluorescent-green snot, velvet Elvis paintings, kangaroo dissection, and all manner of disgusting things. A truly disgusting and disturbing sci-fi movie experience. Don't watch on a full stomach, no matter how strong you think it is...
