Yesterday we talked about the battle of the genitals in science horror films, and today I've got the best example of a horror movie penis ever created. It's the zombie rat vs. zombie penis moment from Beyond Re-Animator, the third in a series about a mad doctor (played with vigor by Jeffrey Combs) with a glow-in-the-dark serum that turns dead people into mind-controlled zombies. This flick takes place in a Spanish prison, where our mad doctor has been zombiefying everybody, including the rat-like warden and a zillion prisoners hanged for rioting. In this scene, the zombied warden tries to molest a zombied lady, while a zombied rat watches hungrily.

Luckily, the rat gets his chow. Or will the chow fight back? After all, once you're a zombie, all your body parts take on a life of their own.

It won't surprise you to find out that this brilliant movie is the brainchild of my personal deity Brian Yuzna, with special effects provided by Screaming Mad George. They're the same team who provided you so much pleasure several weeks ago with this NSFW scene from Faust where a lady's body parts suddenly get a little . . . out of proportion. Basically, you always know you're watching a Yuzna flick because there will be lots of creative gore mixed with foot fetishism and weird sex.

I highly recommend Beyond Re-Animator — this scene hardly does justice to a movie where one of the bad guys spends most of the movie as a severed torso swinging from bar to bar through the prison. And of course, the zombie rat and zombie penis meet again several times . . .
