Body horror is horror based on a sense of physical "wrongness" in the body. Bizarre birth defects and mutations are a common theme in body horror, as is unwanted physical transformation or invasion. Examples of the genre include Rosemary's Baby, Boxing Helena, many of Clive Barker's novels and films, and many of the films of David Cronenberg.

Body horror often combines psychological horror with gore and other shocking imagery. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_horror [Oct 2004]
