Body Melt (1993, AUS) C-81m. * D: Philip Brophy. Starring Gerard Kennedy, Andrew Daddo, Ian Smith, Regina Gaigalas, Vincent Gil. Splatter comedy about a company which experiments with special vitamin ingredients and sends out some samples to unsuspecting people in suburbia. The physical reation is explained in the movie's title. Rather inept, not very funny, with a nod to T.C.M. in a second, almost completely unrelated plot thread. Gore hounds should watch it for the grisly effects, but this is light years from BRAIN DEAD (1992).
