Top 11 Cinematic Experiments Gone Wrong

Re-Animator (1985)

The insanity of this film cannot be overstated. From the naked reanimated corpse raging though the laboratory to the most memorable oral sex scene ever captured on film (I defy you to find its equal), Re-Animator is the epitome of over-the-top 80's horror. With buckets of gore and the blackest humor you can imagine, Re-Animator has entertained horror fans for decades and all because Dr. Herbert West decided to bring his professor, Dr. Hans Gruber (name sound familiar fans of "American Horror Story"? Die Hard?), back to life. That unforgettable syringe with the glowing green liquid has meant nothing but trouble since its first injection and it continued to wreak havoc for two equally outrageous sequels.

The Human Centipede (2010)

Just the thought of Dieter Laser playing the diabolical Dr. Josef Heiter brings a smile to the face of most horror fans. As does the plan behind this film's experiment, that being the attempt to surgically create a Siamese triplet that shares one digestive system. And there's only one way we can do that, right kiddies? Oh yes…ass-to-mouth. And although Dr. Heiter spent his professional life separating conjoined twins, he has become more interested in putting things back together during his retirement. Maybe he should have tried golf. Initially, Heiter succeeds in creating the three-person 'pede, however it eventually proves to be a failure, and a deadly one at that. Although he did have some fun training his human pet (which was certainly not as cooperative as Heiter's previously constructed three-dog) the final result was certainly not what the good doctor intended.

I thought this was going to be about the other kind of cinematic experiments gone wrong, the kind usually involving someone like Uwe Boll.

Take out Human Centipede and you have a wonderful list there. You could replace it with Colossus the Forbin Project, or Godzilla, or Deep Blue Sea, hell, even Night of the Living Dead. Great list though!

Thanks Terminal! I tried to mix it up a little bit. Of course there were some entries that were must-haves, but I think we snuck a couple fresh ones in there. And I'm a sucker for the 'pede!
