Girlz 'N' Games webcomic #110 - Film Nerds in Love
Originally posted on my web comic, Girlz 'N' Games.
My latest comic - for the romantics at heart... and Body Horror nerds.
Yeah, this strip should have been up for Valentine's Day but time got away from me. Anyway, here it is now. Just consider it Girlz 'N' Games' 2013 V-Day comic, regardless.
I know the reference may be a tad on the obscure side for some readers. Then again, if you've ever watched the likes of The Brood, The Fly, eXistenZ or Crash - or even the trailer for Cronenberg Jnr's Antiviral - I think you'll have a pretty good idea what I'm talking about.
Of all the cinematic sub-genres, I've always found Body Horror (consider The Human Centipede another recent example) to consistently rank among the most emotionally potent and memorable. Perhaps because these films tend to be so nightmarish that you just can't erase them from your memory. Then again, I am very squeamish when it comes to authentic-looking "medical' violence - I thought Regan's hospital examination in The Exorcist was by far the most disturbing scene of the film, and I almost fainted watching 127 Hours.
Anyway, film nerds, and their sometimes rather bizarre obsessions, FTW. You know you're with someone special when you're discussing orifices and nobody is freaked out.
