Name That Trauma:: Reader Jeff T. on a Mouthy Hot Tub Lady Monster

Hello!

I was hoping somebody could name this one. As a child, an irresponsible adult I knew sometimes let me watch horror films. The ones I remember best are The Thing, Prom Night 2 (I think), and a third film that I simply cannot track down. The only scene I recall from this movie involved the main antagonist, a sexy lady monster, in a hot tub making out with a curly-haired guy. A monster hunter is after her, apparently, and she knows it. So at the, ahem, moment of truth, she morphs into a hideous monster with lots of mouths all over her body (that’s what my five-year-old self interpreted them as, anyway…) and kills the guy. The monster hunter shows up and finds the guy’s corpse in a hot tub full of blood. This would have been mid- or late-80s. It definitely wasn’t Species, although there are more than a few similarities.

Thanks for the help!

Re: Unk’s trailer – anyone else think “Star Trek TNG uniform” at 0:27?

Definitely TERRORVISION. I rewatched it last year, and it’s a hoot!

Hey guys, thanks for all the responses! I think, of the two films suggested so far, the tone of the movie was closer to “Night Angel.” It didn’t seem to have any comedic elements (although I was 5 or 6, so maybe I missed the humor).

That monster from “Terrorvision” does look pretty familiar, though.

Unkle, that’s also kind of familiar, but I can’t say for sure.

I really have a clear memory of the lady kissing this guy, and as she does so she sort of sheds her human skin, and the guy starts to panic. Her body grows really large and monstrous. I think she had to kill the guy quickly because she knew the monster hunter was close.

The next scene is this monster hunter guy (?) running in to the building and seeing the tub full of blood with the guy sitting in it, dead.

I think the place where this all occurred was a big mansion, kind of gothic. There were lots of huge windows and plants–maybe a greenhouse or atrium? Don’t know if this helps.

Sorry, it was so long ago, that’s about as much as I can remember, and it’s all fragmentary.

Hmm, no, don’t think it was that one either.

Sorry to put you through all this. I wish I had more details to go on.

Nope, I remember Life Force and watched it fairly recently.

I just watched a trailer for “The Kindred” (1987), and that looks kind of close. Trouble is it was never released on DVD, so I can’t find a full version of it to watch.

Isn’t there a scene like this in The Lair of the White Worm? I haven’t seen that film for quite a while so I don’t know how well the scene I’m thinking of actually matches up with the description here but that is what I immediately thought of upon reading it.

Hmm, I haven’t seen Lair of the White Worm… I’ll have to check it out. Thanks for the rec.
