I can't stand this torment and anticipation!
It's the story of Jennifer, the sex-maniac that can't find a man who can satisfy her. This is most likely due to the fact that she possess 7 uh...uhm...Sweet Spots? between her legs. Yeah, she is the ultimate vortex of fierce sexual energy. All the fellas inadequacies will cost them dearly.
Then she finally meets a young stud. A man with a 5 dollar foot long. No, I'm not talking about Subway. Heck, he might be packing a 2 footer. Anyway, he injected some steroids(baseball player?) into his Johnson and is now ready to do some damage. This is what it's like when worlds collide!
I think there is a mutant baby involved in this story too. Probably lots of nudity and gory madness. Sorry I can't say for sure. Anyone with any info about this please share!
Bad Biology sounds like a grand slam for fans of extreme outrageous cult horror!
While we get the same themes Henenlotter took from the Tom Reamy story The Detweiler Kid (if his oeuvre wasn't inspired by this F&SF story I'll eat my hat,) he had never addressed the female aspect of it, (well, he kinda did in Basket Case II & III, but not to the extent he does here.)
Bad Biology is apparently a natural progression from Basket Case and Brain Damage (with a definite hip-hop sensibility which might seem strange for someone of Henenlotter's generation, but if you think about it maybe not so much.) Is this the movie Henenelotter wanted to make all along?
The monsters here are a mutant female (the Cronenberg inspired portion) who would fit nicely in Rabid, Shivers, Dead Ringers, etc. and a guy who seems, at this point, to be your typical Henenlotter hero.
The movie is basically set up to have them 'meet cute.'
So what we get is a sort of live action, horror version of a Tijuana Bible (strange that I recently mentioned Eveready Harton / Buried Treasure in another thread:
...or maybe some kind of variant of The Horny Goof (by Moebius) or, at least what story is implied in some of its panels.
The overall story is somewhat weak, the acting often seems amateurish, with scenes with crazy, colorful characters which don't integrate well to the overall story.
Effects are mostly physical with a crude, old-style charm: fans should find these perfectly acceptable. The film does lack the charm and personality of a Belial or Aylmer character. We also get the constant struggle to exploit, but to also include feminist commentary and themes as possible justification(?) or maybe just appeasement of potential critics.
Not great, but I was grateful for unsafe and outrageous ideas and humor of a kind we don't see as much nowadays.
Superb script, plotline, and direction - reminiscent of (and a worthy companion to) Henenlotter's fantastic Frankenhooker (1990).
