YMMV / Body Melt

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: 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 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. 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.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Didn't get a whole lot of attention in its native Australia when it was first released, but picked up much more of an audience when it was released on video in the US and UK, with even Quentin Tarantino going on record as saying that he finds the film a lot of fun.
