  17. LOLZY 123 says:

    I hate zombies, and the biting…? yeah, I hate it. and there’s nothing real about these. I mean there’s no real acting, no real editing, no real makeup, its all not real all there are is: Jumpscares, drugs, bad acting, screaming, grossness. see? nothing is actually good in these "Movies" and ain’t they suppose to be "Horror Movies " they’re not even scary, they’re gross! (in my head) *I wish these dumb movies will go, and mostly ones that are like the twin one where she bites the scar and takes loads of blood and skin with her like an canible. WAIT, is she!? and zombies? why zombies!? but they don’t even look real, but, I’m still scared of it. I’m going back to todays funny horrors like Chucky and Scream and shit, byeeeeee* also I think I’ve watched "Hellraiser" but I don’t know. It seems… familiar to me. from somewhere I guess. and "Alien" that ain’t body-horror thats some other type just ’cause ONE CLIP looks like it doesn’t mean it actually is! and in "Alien" when the little one jumps out of the guys belly, to me it looks so cute and I love this little sound that it makes then quickly slivers away.
    *squeaky voice* (pops out) "ahhhh" *sliver, sliver* :3
    so cute when you think about it just don’t imagine that it comes out the guys… errrr… belly :/ yea… bye now!!!
    *zooms out like an cartoon character*

  18. Grayson Voorhees says:

    no scanners you guys suck!

  19. Mary says:

    Honestly, im not judging but you must be messed up to willingly sit and watch these movies. I don’t even understand why body horror is a thing. I personally prefer more psychological thrillers because slasher movies or these on this list look way too fake (and gross) for me but I guess some people might find psychological horror movies weird too

  20. Enten puffi says:

    the clown film should have made it

  21. Juanita Cason says:

    suck your mom pusy

  22. Bob Rifo's fan says:

    (Thumbs up if you watched Akira)

  31. Wendy Carlson says:

  32. John Taylor says:

    Notice David Cronenberg directed a full half of this list?

  33. rebecca bayaird says:

    What about Leviathan with Earnie Hudson and Peter Weller. That was a good one too.

  34. Tuppiei&Gaming says:

    well… that made my stomach turn

  35. Lord Toxic says:

    The Human Centipede isn’t body horror, it’s torture porn… there’s a difference

  36. Mikayla Blantz says:

    What part of the cockroach is talking? Does it have a mouth or is its voice coming from the asshole like thing on its back

  39. Killkitty says:

    the fly is so so good

  40. Jacob Hoss says:

    I find your lack of Eraserhead disturbing.

  41. ZugZug says:

    where’s fucking spy kids

  42. DeathByUmbrella says:

    I’m surprised there weren’t more Japanese movies on this list, they make some of the best body horror I’ve ever seen. Gyo and Tokyo Gore Police are two of my personal favorites.

  43. Outer Macaroon52 says:

  47. LOLZY 123 says:

    No not the biting! I hate this, its nothing. there’s no real deal… if you know what I mean. there’s no real acting, no real editing, on real people. and there ment to be "Horror Movies" they’re not even scary just gross. who made these? I need to know cuz they did a hell of a bad job, honesty.
