A vitamin drink delivered free to residents of idyllic housing development Pebbles Court provokes a series of ghastly body mutations. Two investigating cops trace the trouble to the futuristic 'health farm' of Dr Carrera (Smith) where guests are being used for crazed experiments. Despite its emetic preoccupations - exploding stomachs, elongating tongues, etc - this mordant debut feature is in fact less a splatterfest than a consumerist satire. It's overlaid with black humour and takes swipes at health fads, body building, soap operas and the false utopia of suburban living.

this is one of the funniest movies of all time. I loved "slab" the best and "gino" and "sal" dean measor as the (voice) of "beauville" was very funny. very clever film.

Hi @Al I totally agree; as this Actor could seriously act, and sing- and- he could have potentially been a (UK) "icon" by now as he must be in his late 40's, early 50's now? I have read he is chronically ill now and spends most of his time in and out of hospitals and also, sadly alone. That saddens me as he really was like the next "Jack Wild" he was so good looking and sincere and he had that rare sparkle in his eye. I have heard that due to his very poor health he now looks way older than his 50 years. I did not know it was Dean Measor who voiced this "Beauville" character as he sounds so Australian. Dean Measor did a good job then as the character sounds a real red necked Australian and Dean Measor the person, spoke with like a South London accent from memory. Thank you for your comment.

The worst move British Stage Actor Dean Measor ever did in his career was move to Australia to do such crap shoes like Neighbours (1992-1993) Boys From The Bush 2, etc, etc. He did a Robin Smith from Bless This House fame and moved to Australia, his Stage and Film Acting suffered as a great result, just like Smith who went from Bless This House fame to backward garbage, Sons And Daughters. Dean's portrail of the high pitched freak of nature Beauville was easily the funniest piece/moment in this horror/comedy. 4 stars because of the underrated skills of English Actor, DEAN MEASOR.


Dean Measor is a truely brilliant voice artist-actor. This movie has a massive cult following in Europe and America. Body Melt was nominated for a Saturn Award and has won several AFI awards. A classic gore/comedy flic!

Thank you for a very well written movie review. This comedy/gore flick takes the micky out of just about everything. The high pitch voice of the massive body builder character is well funny.

Body Melt contains the "who's who" of Australian Actors. The VOICE of the character BEAUVILLE is infact English born stage Actor Dean Measor. The actual body of BEAUVILLE is played by a professional body builder. (Matt McLean)

Dean Measor does alot of voice work as an Actor, I remember hearing him on the radio alot in the early 90's. I also agree, the voice was very funny and so was Body Melt.
