Whoops! I see you listed the 1992 "Dust Devil."

How could I forget David Cronenburg - there is shape-shifting in lots
of his films, like "The Fly," and "Naked Lunch." Of course lots of
classic horror films, like "The Wolfman," and "Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde" have shape-shifting, but they get lots of exposure.

Can't say I am a fan of "Cocoon." It's not awful, but pretty white
bread, bland.
