Body horror falls into one of three “gross” genres or “genres of excess” which also includes pornography and melodrama.[3] According to film scholar Linda Williams, the success of these body genres “is often measured by the degree to which the audience sensation mimics what is seen on the screen”.[3] For example, an audience may experience feelings of terror through horror, sympathy through melodrama, or sexual arousal through pornography. Body horror specifically focuses on the limits and transformative capabilities of the human body.[4]
