What's the title of this a late 80s or early 90s movie?

The title is the name of whatever the main character turns into. All I can remember is this man unknowingly being taken over by this thing that goes into the back of his neck. He then has a suit and has to fight 4 aliens who landed on Earth.

The aliens all look different and can talk, they have different voices and personalities.

This sounds enough like The Guyver (eponymous strange artifact that latches onto the body, Bio-Armour, Aliens, etc) that it might be worth for you to check.

It's early nineties, not eightes, but 1991 still sounds close.

The Guyver

  • Shame this never got confirmed as the answer. A good movie, even with its numerous flaws. The sequel, though, (Dark Hero) was a fantastic low-budget Guyver movie.

For another lump-on-neck horror movie, try The Manitou (1978).

  • Does it involve the person with the lump on the neck fighting aliens?

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F. Can you describe other ways in which this movie might be a match? Does the person with the lump have to fight aliens? This answer needs more details; you should read How to Answer.

The Puppet Masters like a stingray thingy on the back.

    Could you edit this to clarify whether it matches the other details mentioned in the question? I.e. did the man have a suit, and did he fight four aliens? Apr 7, 2022 at 0:49
