* ''{{Guyver}}'': The first transformation sequence. Right before the [[FinalBoss big bad]] shows up when the guy they are trying to rescue... well, it doesn't turn out so well for him. PainfulTransformation doesn't even begin to describe it. What happens to one of the Zoanoids, who accidentally swallowed the Guyver after the heroes DisneyDeath. The other villains were planning to cut him open and get it back, before it went ChestBurster instead.

* ''Film/{{X-Men}}'':
** [[spoiler:Weapon XI, especially his [[WipeThatSmileOffYourFace mouthless]] face with perpetually open eyes]] in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine''.
** ''Film/XMenFirstClass'':\\\
Hank [=McCoy=]'s transformation sequence, the process was depicted as rather painful and horrific, bones, muscles and skin shifting and stretching while fur aggressively sprouted along his body.\\\
The death of [[spoiler:Darwin.]]\\\
Inverted with Mystique as a major part of her character arc involves her coming to accept her natural appearance.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':\\\
Happens to Wolverine during the film's climax, when [[spoiler:Magneto impales him with several rebar pipes, entwining them within his flesh and leaving him to drown in the Potomac]].\\\
Several of the deaths in the BadFuture. [[spoiler:First time out, Colossus has his head caved in ''whilst in his metal form'' and Iceman's head is snapped from the the rest of his body in his frozen form, only for the events to later be {{averted}}. In the climax, Bishop explodes due to being "force fed" too much energy, Colossus is ripped in two, Sunspot loses an arm, and Iceman has most of his torso vaporized.]]

** ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': Angel's empowering by Apocalypse is surprisingly disturbing. He contorts his body while his wings twist and shift as they get embroidered in metal and a second, smaller pair grows, seemingly breaking part of his ribcage and skin. He's understandably screaming in pain throughout the whole transformation.

* ''Film/PoultrygeistTheNightOfTheChickenDead'' and its demon chicken egg breasts. There was a man with eggs where his nipples should be with demon chickens hatching from them. This is on top of normal zombie movie body horrors (only with chicken human zombie hybrids).

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