Typically, when people think of science fiction in film, their mind goes to aliens and starships battling it out among the stars. To be fair, Sci-Fi has a ton of subgenres, but in addition to those, it has a talent for combining other genres within its narrative.
The best marriage of genres has got to be horror and sci-fi. Combining the horrific and disgusting aspects of a horror film with the futuristic allure of sci-fi has resulted in some memorable and highly profitable movies over the years.
Of course, there are plenty that don't do well, but the ones that manage to court both genres perfectly, make up some of the best, albeit disgusting, films ever made. This is usually due to a scene or aspect of a movie that is completely unforgettable, and the very best ones feature parts that are outright disgusting!
Even if a movie isn't all that great, a truly disgusting scene finds a way to stick with you for years and years. Often, there's a single scene from a movie that does this like some kind of video eyeworm that gets into your brain and makes you paranoid around dark corners of the house.
