Hideous! is a 1997 horror film directed by Charles Band.


The film begins with the discovery of an amazingly deformed infant floating in a sewage pool. It is sold to Belinda Yost, the owner of International Medical Specimens, a company which sells unique biological specimen to wealthy collectors. The two drive off, discussing the possibility of Sheila becoming his partner. The camera then closes on the Specimins, alive, and seemingly plotting inside the trunk of kantor's car.
