This is kind of cheating, as it’s not really a proper blog entry. Regardless, I have a brain itch that only fellow horror fans can adequately scratch.
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.
For a long time I assumed this was one of the various Invasion of the Body Snatchers remakes. Now I’m not so sure. I’m sure it wasn’t a good movie, but I was sufficiently scarred by it as a child that I’d like to find out what it was, or if my Prom Night- and The Thing-addled brain made a weird composite of the two as some bizarre coping mechanism.
I should add that this was in the mid 80s, well before Species was released, so that’s out.
Is this ringing any bells with anybody?

I’m thinking some kind of Lovecraftian rip off here – the Dunwich Horror maybe? I don’t know???
Naa forget that its not the Dunwich Horror, but it does sound pretty Lovecraftian.
I can’t figure it out. But if you submit it to Kindertrauma they may be able to.
Kindertrauma? You mean there’s a website or something dedicated to finding out the names of horror movies that traumatized you in your youth?!
Well, that’s one regular feature they have, called Name That Trauma. It’s probably my favorite horror site that I don’t own, they do a great job. http://www.kindertrauma.com/
I know this is a late response, but it sounds like Lair of the White Worm.
Hey Dom, thanks! Yeah, you may be right. Some people on Kindertrauma suggested that too. I really need to watch it.
