Letterboxd Showdown 42: Weird Science

"With Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s big friend George about to Rampage his way across screens, this week we’re seeking your top 10 films in which scientists, baddies, government agents or anyone with the code to the lab gets to meddle with genetics or medicine, with unexpected consequences. This is more than “let’s bring back dinosaurs!”—we want you to rank your favorite spliced, spiked, shrunk or supersized mutation. Human or beast, or both, let’s see the weird and wonderful results. Rule: a human had to do it; no accidental spider-bites."
