Leviathan (1989); This movie is an underwater horror movie and features everything I would expect from an underwater corporate horror-scape. The set dressing is a damp and leaking Alien deep sea lab. The big bad is a mutating creature which absorbs and transforms those that integrate into its system. Think of the blob and the thing twisted into a blender with sick practical effects that’ll make your jaw drop. My (Thomas’s) recommendation is… if you can watch this movie and like creature flicks with gore, then you need to check this one out. The big bad beastie makes the entire movie worth it alone. Plus the main hero is also Peter Weller trying to keep a ragtag crew together as they are reaching the end of their underwater operation. Does the Dog Die.

Color Out of Space (2020); Nicholas Cage and his family, which includes precocious kids and a herd of alpacas come into contact with an entity that bursts forth from a meteor that falls into their front yard. Tainting the water and spreading all over as a color that seeks to change this world into being like its homeworld. To contort and join together beings into monstrosities that squirm and writhe. This movie has body horror in it, it has an alpaca herd that fuses together, it has a mutant cat, and a mother and son who melt into each other to become a horrifying crawler creature. It also has Nicholas Cage putting on a Trump voice for his character when he starts to become affected by the color out of space. If you can’t stand a large amount of gore or body horror, then I would recommend skipping this one as it shows it big and in the center of the screen when it comes up. It’s amazingly grotesque and is one of the best Lovecraftian horror movies that I (Thomas) have seen. It also comes from the fantastic SpectreVision, a production company founded by freaking Elijah Wood! The one that also worked on Mandy and A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. Does the Dog Die.
