THE ABOMINATION (1986)
If you took the THE DEADLY SPAWN and mixed it with LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS and filmed it on 8mm and also mixed in a bunch of extra weirdness and set the whole thing in Texas(gratuitous cow shots plus everyone here drives a pickup truck and chugs numerous beers while doing so) you would get something like this. It starts right off showing all the gory FX work right out of the gate and then takes it's sweet time getting going but when it does it's quite the gore-show. The basic story is about a tumor that turns into a bunch of monsters, that basically just consist of sets of sharp teeth attached to slimy balls of goo, and then get our main guy to go on a killing spree to acquire meaty treats by hypnotizing him or something. These monsters might be from outer space or hell, that part's never made exactly clear. Multiple hands get bitten off, necks are slit, a chainsaw decapitation happens and many folks are chomped up. Blood sprays across rooms and hits people in the face. Real animal intestines are strewn about in an insane feeding scene to end it all and a clearly unhappy cat gets placed in a toilet bowl. There's also a phony preacher character who likes to take loud, farty shits with the bathroom door ajar like a true degenerate. The shittiest part is the wraparound "it's all a dream" story but if you ignore that it's a pretty crazy ride.
