HASH(0x9ae8bee8) out of 5 stars Totlly wacked-out love story from Henenlotter Feb. 1 2010
By C. Christopher Blackshere - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
WARNING--This movie contains violence, nudity, and very absurd sexual situations. It is intended to shock even the most jaded of viewers. Proceed with caution.

Director Frank Henenlotter always walks the fine line between psychedelic brilliant freak show extraordinaire and abhorrent immature smut peddlin' freak. With bizarre little gems like Basket Case, Brain Damage, and Frankenhooker, he always keeps you off balance. And here with Bad Biology, he pushes you completely over the edge. This has got to be his craziest stuff yet.

Jennifer is born with a gift (or curse) from God--some extra sweet spots below the belt. 7 of 'em, in fact. This caused her to start menstrating at age 5, and currently makes her reproductive organs function at an accelerated rate. Plus she suffers from ESAS (Extreme Sexual Arousal Syndrome). Her crazy libido nearly controls her every action, and this heightened sexuality often turns deadly for her bedroom partners. She gets a little too crazy-hot-excited, to put it mildly. And to top it all off, she frequently gives a quick birth to some mutated monster babies, which she quickly discards in the nearby trash. Sheesh!

Next we have Bax, a man with some private problems of his own. On the day he was born, the doctor made a horrible mistake when attempting to cut off his umbilical cord. Ouch! Bax got stitched up, but had problems functioning when he got older. So he decided to inject steroids and some growth hormones, and the problem expanded out of control. So he is toting around a monster with a mind of its own, in which he constantly has to search for the proper prescription (and non-prescription) drugs to appease this thing. Double Sheesh!

I know, this story is completely ridiculous. It gets even worse when the two hookup. But before that special outrageous love connection is made, another huge disaster occurs. I better stop here, I don't wanna spoil it for the one guy who is actually thinking about watching this movie.

Just classic Henenlotter. Low budget, bizarre, and spewing with raunchy creativity. Hilarious stuff. Recommended for demented B-movie fans only.

HASH(0x9b882408) out of 5 stars Finally, A Woman With That Little Extra "Something" June 9 2012
By Stanley Runk - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After more or less retiring in the early 90s after Basket Case 3, Frank Henenlotter is back in the game! It's a welcome return and he certainly hasn't grown up, which is good. In recent years he has teamed up with a rap artist called RA The Rugged Man. RA did the music for this film and co-wrote it as well, which probably accounts for the large number of white rapper types in the film.
Bad Biology is billed as a "God-Awful Love Story", but to me it's not much of a love story at all, god-awful or not. The two leads don't actually meet until the end of the film, and it's not even the least bit romantic.
The two central characters are a man and woman who each have enhanced and/or added sexual equipment. In Henenlotter's world this translates to mutated and deformed! This causes problems for their sex partners/victims who seem to suffer from coming in contact with them.
The two leads are more or less made for one another to engage sexually. Like I said though, their meeting isn't until the last act and it doesn't run as smoothly planned.
This isn't Henenlotter's best I must say, but that also means it's much better than a lot of stuff out there that tries for the old grindhouse vibe. It's as sexually crude as possible without becoming pornographic, so don't watch it with the kiddies. That may be one of the problems too is that it's more or less a nonstop sexathon when a bit more story could have been focused on. Henenlotter's films, while outrageous, were always a step ahead because of good characters and story. Nobody here is all that interesting to be honest. Also, the stop motion animated disembodied penis with a sinister mind of it's own was done before in the Russ Meyer tribute film, Pervert!
But even with that being said, it's still pretty entertaining and occasionally quite funny. In this crappy age of digital, Henenlotter gives us the added treat of shooting in 35mm!
Bad Biology is a welcome return, and hopefully Henenlotter is back to stay for awhile this time.

HASH(0x9b882138) out of 5 stars ONE OF HENENLOTTER'S BEST! May 9 2014
By DR SHOCK - Published on
Format: DVD
This film is going to appeal to a limited audience, but for fans of Frank Henenlotter, this film shouldn't disappoint. If you aren't familiar with Mr. Henenlotter's work, he was responsible for such low budget gems as Basket Case, 1,2 and 3, Brain Damage and Frankenhooker. Henenlotter's films are very original and despite some very disturbing and sometimes ridiculous premises, he handles the story with intelligence and style. I thought Mr. Henenlotter may have thrown in the towel as his last project he was working on 'Sick In The Head' seem to get scraped. I might not have known about this film if not for one of my horror buddies (Thanks C!) doing a review on this a while back.

Bad Biology is wrong on so many levels, but it is handled with such unbridled over the top silliness, that one can not take it remotely seriously. I was captivated from beginning to end because the actors are convincing and there is lots of female nudity. If you think you've seen it all, think again! Bad Biology is outrageous sick fun for the whole family.....NOT! :-D

HASH(0x9ae9933c) out of 5 stars it was different... Oct. 25 2011
By Bookworm936 - Published on
Format: DVD
I know this is a low budget movie but...

The acting is rather bland. Some of the actors seem bored with their role. Also the scene with the three teenagers (two female, one male) speaking about how large they are/like it to be is rather...well the acting is so bad it really should have been left out. The first half of the movie is rather slow considering it shows one sexual encounter after another until the two main characters meet.

The movie does show some interesting techniques to ummm deal with the main characters' issues but aside from a few of those we found rather funny (and I am not sure they were ment to be funny) that was pretty much all we got out of it. So we gave it one star for the humor and the other star was for the view from her vagina. That was indeed a first for us.

We watched it and it wasn't something we enjoyed enough to watch again. I would rather watch Someone's Knocking at the Door again.
HASH(0x9ae994ec) out of 5 stars Frank Henenlotter's Bad Biology (2008) Aug. 31 2015
By El Gomitas - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This film is 25% Cronenberg and 65% Henenlotter & 10% hip-hop.
While we get the same themes Henenlotter took from the Tom Reamy story The Detweiler Kid (if his oeuvre wasn't inspired by this F&SF story I'll eat my hat,) he had never addressed the female aspect of it, (well, he kinda did in Basket Case II & III, but not to the extent he does here.)

Bad Biology is apparently a natural progression from Basket Case and Brain Damage (with a definite hip-hop sensibility which might seem strange for someone of Henenlotter's generation, but if you think about it maybe not so much.) Is this the movie Henenelotter wanted to make all along?

The monsters here are a mutant female (the Cronenberg inspired portion) who would fit nicely in Rabid, Shivers, Dead Ringers, etc. and a guy who seems, at this point, to be your typical Henenlotter hero.
The movie is basically set up to have them 'meet cute.'
So what we get is a sort of live action, horror version of a Tijuana Bible (strange that I recently mentioned Eveready Harton / Buried Treasure in another thread: )

...or maybe some kind of variant of The Horny Goof (by Moebius) or, at least what story is implied in some of its panels.

The overall story is somewhat weak, the acting often seems amateurish, with scenes with crazy, colorful characters which don't integrate well to the overall story.
Effects are mostly physical with a crude, old-style charm: fans should find these perfectly acceptable. The film does lack the charm and personality of a Belial or Aylmer character. We also get the constant struggle to exploit, but to also include feminist commentary and themes as possible justification(?) or maybe just appeasement of potential critics.

Not great, but I was grateful for unsafe and outrageous ideas and humor of a kind we don't see as much nowadays.
