Severed Ties ★½ 1992 (R)

Brilliant genetic scientist experiments with human limb regeneration in order to regrow his accidentally severed arm. His strange mixture of lizard and serial-killer genes results in a repulsive repitilian limb with a nasty habit of slithering out of his shoulder. His mother discovers his experiments and tries to sell his discovery to the Nazis but her son escapes into a bizarre subterranean society and vows revenge. So bad it's just bad. 95m/C VHS . Billy Morrissette, Elke Sommer, Oliver Reed, Garrett Morris; D: Damon Santostefano.
