reelgood.com is a great resource to find where a movie is streaming.

Alternatively, justwatch.com

If you want more body horror specifically from that era try:

Eraserhead (1978)
An American Werewolf in London (1981)
The Thing (1982)
Re-Animator (1985)
The Fly (1986)
Hellraiser (1987)
Society (1989)


If you're looking for stuff from others decades too:

Eyes without a Face (1960)
District 9 (2009)
Raw (2016)

I think he means something similar also in style. Tetsuo and The Thing, for instance, are wildly different, although the themes might be similar. Possession is full of these performative moments and overall confusion. Tetsuo is pure shaky-cam psychosexual insanity and very hard to follow. Nothing like The Thing's conventional and linear style.
