In the mid-80's, Lea Thompson starred in both the famous and the infamous of science-fiction, Back to the Future (1985) and Howard the Duck (1986).

The two films didn't exactly get the same reception and recognition throughout the years, but what they had in common, besides the genre, was that they both starred Lea Thompson and in both films, she was involved in quite disturbing romances.

Granted Lorraine didn't know Marty was her son and Howard was an 'anthropomorphic' duck, it's quite difficult to overlook the oedipal and 'interspecial' undertones of each relationship... regardless of your personal appreciation of each film.

Which of these two romances, culminating with one cringe-worthy kiss, was the most disturbing?
