* A very {{Squick}}y Japanese film ''Film/TetsuoTheIronMan'' and its sequel ''Tetsuo II: Body Hammer'' push this trope to its extremes.

* A very {{Squick}}y Japanese film ''Film/TetsuoTheIronMan'' and its sequel ''Tetsuo II: Body Hammer'' sequels push this trope to its extremes.extremes. The first film (which set the idea for the future films) is based around a man known as the "Metal Fetishist" (he has a fetish for ''sticking scrap metal into his body'') getting hit by a car and killed by a salaryman who then gets punished by ''having his flesh slowly turn into metal''.

* ''Film/TheHunger'' has DavidBowie play a vampire who starts losing his immortality and starts aging during the middle of the film. [[spoiler:He doesn't lose his ''immortality'', just his ''youth''. Catherine Deneuve has a dozen former vampire lovers tucked away in coffins in one room of her apartment, all of them extremely old and [[AndIMustScream doomed to live as withered ancients forever.]] And a flashback suggests at least one of them has been that way since ''ancient Egypt.'' Gulp.]]

* In ''[[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles The Secret of the Ooze]]'', the Shredder attempts a OneWingedAngel by drinking a cannister of "ooze." When he reemerges a few minutes later, he's at least a foot taller and has added about a hundred pounds of muscle. [[GoryDiscretionShot We don't see the transformation]], but the fact that his ShoulderPadsOfDoom[=/=]SpikesOfVillainy have also grown exponentially and his black cloth outfit now appears hard and leathery implies that his costume ''is now a part of him.''

* ''Curse II: The Bite'' (an in-name-only sequel to ''The Curse'', a movie ''loosely'' based on Lovecraft's ''The Colour out of Space'') features a man bitten on the left hand by a snake, one implied to have been [[ILoveNuclearPower exposed to radioactive waste]]. At first, he just experiences some weakness and vomiting, but then his personality starts getting colder. When we see that his hand has mutated into a snake's head, and it kills two people (one by jamming itself down a police deputy's mouth & throat and tearing out his heart, the other by tearing a nurse's jaw off), he freaks out and chops it off. But it doesn't stop there -- another snake grows out of the stump and strangles a man with its super-long tongue (frog-snake?), then as he chases his girlfriend snakes begin ''bursting'' out of him. His left eye pops out, and snakes wriggle out of it as if it were some sort of egg. His tongue elongates and detaches, and wriggles after her. He vomits up three or four large snakes, before his mouth opens so wide his head splits in half and a giant snake (which appears to have his spinal column for a body) pops out and chases after the girl. Earlier, we see hints of the transformation trauma to come, in the form of a dog which had been bitten and mutated into a snake-dog hybrid.\\

Added DiffLines:

* The effects of the Flare Virus in ''Film/MazeRunnerTheScorchTrials'' are garish; whatever part of your body got infected first starts to fester and turn black as your respiratory functions start to cease, followed by a degeneration of your mind to a feral zombie-like state. Advanced cases have horribly twisted limbs, skin marred by black tendril-like growths, a twitching and jerky gait likely caused by some form of palsy, and most Cranks have [[EyeScream gouged their eyes out]] to stop the hallucinations they're plagued by.

* ''Film/CabinFever'' centers around a group of friends who go camping and contract necrotizing fasciitis... also known as ''flesh-eating bacteria''. Bloodiness certainly ensues. Its sequel takes this several steps further into ''HappyTreeFriends'' territory.

* The original ''Film/RoboCop1987'' movie had a moment where a mook trying to run Murphy over with a truck accidentally drives straight into a huge vat of [[HollywoodAcid Toxic Waste]]. He emerges from the deluge horribly melted and deformed, and is so biologically and chemically unstable that getting hit by a car pops him like a zit. See a compilation of it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjEdLuqK1RQ here]], at your own risk.

* Films of [[Creator/LaurelAndHardy Laurel And Hardy]] fits as well. A bad guy would ruin their body and leaving Oliver ranting to Stan "Well, Here's Another Nice Mess You've Gotten Me Into!" And Stan would whine in a high-pitched voice "But I Couldn't Help It, You Always Picked On Me!"

* Creator/JohnCarpenters ''Film/TheThing1982'' has an alien creature, only called [[NoNameGiven The Thing]], that is the embodiment of this trope. To describe it best, The Thing is a formless, at least in the films, monster that is capable of disguising itself as anything it consumes. The real body horror comes in when its cover is blown and it must defend itself/escape. And revealing itself ain't pretty, often with insect like limbs forcing themselves out, blood spewing everywhere, and bones and teeth created on the spot to chomp the nearest threat.
