Though it starts out slower than molasses in January, it really does pick up to be quite the colorful effects movie. Really most of the ideas here were borrowed, it shared a fair bit with Alien, Island of Lost Souls and quite a few more. The plot is about an old Woman who conducted ghastly experiments using her human Son's DNA to create monstrous hybrids. When she dies she asks her Son to destroy her experiments only a pretty girl who happens to be on of his Mom's fan's is trying to save the experiments. The experiments in question are gooey and gross and well it's actually pretty amusingly done actually. They kill which also leads to a fair bit of fun when unsuspecting people are around. Considering how much I disliked it's straight-to-video qualities at first it really did get good about half way in, so keep at it because this has quite a bit to entertain.

Availability:  Not on DVD
