This was a rather unusual movie, it's rather dumb in many ways and if you are looking for explanations and fancy things like that beware. It is however memorable and entertaining despite being moronically stupid, and it gives a good laugh and a bit of strangeness as well. The idea is that two young scientists that are boyfriend/girlfriend are working on a project with DNA splicing combining different species and the like to make mutants. Just as they are on the verge of a breakthrough they are told to stop but ohhh nooo they'd rather create a part human super freak thing and raise it as their child sort of. It gets even weirder from there if you can imagine, it really was very amusing to see what they would pull out next, and heck I didn't expect a couple of moves that happen. At least also they bothered with a few gross out things for us horror nuts which was appreciated. Sure it's laughable, but that is good in a way right?
