* TransformationHorror: Pretty much sums up the entire premise of the film.
* YourHeadAsplode: A rare inversion; near the end of the film, Elloise finds [[spoiler:Shaan]] with her face half-melted off and babbling incoherently. Elloise slaps her around the face to try and knock some sense into her, which instead causes her head to collapse in on itself.

Added DiffLines:

* DeathBySex: Two examples; one of the bodybuilders at Vimuville goes strangles a woman while he has a meltdown during sex with her (likely killing him as well), and another bodybuilder has an explosive [[ADateWithRosiePalms Date with Rosie Palms]] while reading a porno magazine.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Some people often mistakenly append the phrase "And the third phase is body melt!" to the quote at the top of the page. While the quote is often rendered like that in marketing materials, in the film itself the guy saying it dies before he can fully articulate what the third phase is.

A 1993 horror film from Australia, ''Body Melt'' is pretty much ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. A health farm by the name of Vimuville is sending free samples of their new wonder vitamins to the residents of Pebbles Court. Unfortunately, these new vitamins have some rather nasty side-effects; after suffering the two symptoms mentioned, the people who use it have a bad habit of mutating and, well, melting. After one of the farm's employees tries and fails to warn the residents not to take the drugs, much nastiness ensues...

* BackForTheDead: Halfway through the film, [[spoiler:Brian Rand]] is arrested under suspicion of murdering his wife (who actually exploded due to the side-effects of the vitamins). At the end, after Dr. Carrera and Shaan have been dealt with, the two police officers return to their precinct, where they discover [[spoiler:Brian]] in the midst of a projectile vomiting spell that would make Mr. Creosote envious, which soon causes his internal organs to give out before anything can be done for him.



* FinalGirl: Insomuch as there is one, it's [[spoiler:Louise Noble]], though the two detectives are really the main heroes.

* ImMelting: Again, you'd kind of expect to see this. In actual fact, only three people truly melt, though that's not to say that the other characters in the film have it any better.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: More of a Big Lipped Alligator ''Subplot''; early in the film two teenagers on their way to Vimuville take a wrong turn and end up on a remote farm populated by a bunch of freaks who wouldn't be out of place in a ''[[Film/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Texas Chainsaw Massacre]]'' sequel. Throughout the film we get brief cuts to this subplot, which seems to have no bearing whatsoever on the remainder of the story. [[spoiler:It later turns out that the family's father is the former research partner of Dr. Carrera, who briefly drops in near the end of the film]].
