There was a movie released 10 years ago called Body Parts.  It was a stupid 
horror movie, the plot of which was the following.  A "mad-scientist" type 
doctor had a project where he would take body parts from convicted felons 
(death row folks, maybe?  I don't recall the details), and 
graft/insert/affix/install them on/in/upon law-abiding citizens.

You can guess what happened.  For example one man wakes up to find his new 
arm attempting to strangle his wife...
