Topic: Does anyone remember the name of this early 80s horror movie?
I saw it on either HBO or Showtime in what I'm almost certain was the year 1984; it wasn't an old movie, it seemed, so it probably came out around 1982 or '83. It could've been from the late 1970s, but I doubt it - it had rather an 80s feel.
It was about some guy who had weird experiments conducted on him, and thus became a very powerful being of sorts. I recall so little about it, except for this one scene towards the end:
Several people are hiding (from the man/creature) in this sort of building on the edge of town. One of them is the corrupt Mayor of the town. Oddly and quite jarringly, the Mayor suddenly removes his wig (there'd been no previous indication he was sportin' a Lex Luther hairdo). A few moments later, the antagonist lunges (with just his arms) through the walls of the building, grabs the head of the mayor, and pulls it off and outside (I seem to recall little jets of blood emitting from his neck).
Probably a pretty crappy movie, but I don't completely trust my 14-year old's evaluation from 29 years ago. It had sci-fi elements, but seemed to be pretty definitively a horror film.
Ring a bell for anyone?
