Top 11 Cinematic Experiments Gone Wrong
Once again the government sticks it up our butts with an experiment gone wrong. Most people remember the original Piranha for the bikinis and psycho kill scenes, but, here again, we have to remember that the entire clusterfuck started with a failed government project. The piranha were spawned from a clandestine government experiment entitled Operation: Razorteeth. Now, I'm no expert in nicknaming clandestine government experiments, but anything with Razorteeth in the name sounds like a precarious venture right from the get-go. But what fun we as viewers had watching the unsuspecting water park goers as they suddenly realized that the tickle they felt against their legs wasn't the gentle touch another bathing beauty, but one of the mutated offspring of Operation: Razorteeth (once you get saying it, it's hard to stop…Razorteeth!) about to start biting! Just when you thought it was safe…fresh water version!
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)
There have been several theatrical versions of this tale, but the 1941 envisioning had some incredibly powerful names attached to it. The film starred two multiple Academy Award winners in Spencer Tracy and Ingrid Bergman and was directed by Victor Fleming who had previously helmed Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz two years earlier. The story is classic, Dr. Jekyll believes in the duality of mankind and is sure there is a good and evil side to everyone and he intends to prove it. By drinking a mysterious concoction, the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll turns into the monstrous Hyde. Ironically, Doctor Gash has tried this same experiment to release his evil side with a mysterious concoction known as tequila. Yowza!
